    Oh your God. One of the last posts got

    so many views, and tons of ridiculous posts by Christians and non-Christians alike. I feel like these are some really important things for everyone to know. 1) Stating that you are an atheist and that you think religions are false, even if you go as far as to say the claims...

    Atheism is the only logical position.

    There is no evidence for a God, there isn't even a need for a God to exist. Logic says that God almost certainly does not exist (since it is impossible to prove a negative). Theism also has a huge problem. Believers are REJECTING logic. Can you really trust people that reject...

    I'm honestly an awful atheist.

    I have absolutely no idea if I'm right in what I think. Science is the only thing that makes actual sense to me and Atheism coincides with science almost perfectly. I really like the theory that humanity can't fathom what happens after we die because it's an option we didn't...

    In An Overly Religious World...

    Ever since I cemented my atheistic beliefs in high school, I feel stifled in what often seems like a religion-oriented world. I know that I'm not alone in my beliefs, but it's frustrating to see hardcore religious folks negatively impact the world with their ignorance and...

    Here are some thoughts

    I recently thought of a situation.

    What if I became president one day. And I did many amazing things as president. I pulled the nation out of all debt, raised the unemployment percentage to 0, and did all of these great things. And as the last day if my presidency I made a speech. It would go like this. " I am an...

    I've always been more of a science person,

    and I see no possible scientific explanation of how he exists. If God exists, then why are there many different religions out there? It is simply a mere human illusion. Even historians say that since humans didn't have the technology to explain things like why the sky is blue...

    Burden Of Proof

    Whenever somebody makes a claim, there is a necessary burden of proof on the claimant, which is to provide a level of evidence that supports their claim. The more extraordinary the claim, the more substantial the burden of proof becomes. For example, if I were to claim that there...

    Militant Atheist

    I find it funny when a theist talks about Jesus

    sacrificing his life. I just think, these ************* are stupid. Do you know how a sacrifice works? You give something up for good, not for 72 hours. So technically, Jesus died for the sins of everyone that died in those 72 hours. Oh, wait, that's right. He never even existed...

    People always think being an atheist is wrong,

    that we lack morales. Now, these are the people that condemn people due to being different. Because you love god and believe a book, ok. But don't try to shove it down my throat unless you're ready for an intense verbal debate, of which you'll lose.

    if we say God doesn't exist or anything like that, it's deemed offensive, but if religious people say about God(s) being magnificent and stuff like that, it's never said to be offensive to us?!
