I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,471 People

    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 don't understand how anyone can worship

    such a conceited creature. Any given deity supposedly created us simply to worship them. And like, everyone's cool with that? That's the story you want to go with? I don't get it.

    Just discovered a quote from Bertrand Russell

    (in the piece "Am I An Atheist or Am I An Agnostic") that rather perfectly sums up the way I feel about that question: "As a philosopher, if I were speaking to a purely philosophic audience I should say that I ought to describe myself as an Agnostic, because I do not think that...

    I find it amusing that

    when people find out I'm an Atheist they assume I have no morals or ethics.

    I think it's amazing how the Christians in my

    area who claim to be oppressed for their beliefs are the same Christians who looked at me as an outcast for being an Atheist.

    I found an old school video of George Carlin

    explaining the irony of the religious view point of life is sacred argument. I don't know if this is true but apparently this video was blocked for 3 years. George Carlin was a svxy older man ^_^ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_tr_k59O6s

    I don't know why it is considered bigoted

    or closed minded to say that religion is a myth, an urban legend, a lie perpetuated by the wealthy and powerful. -- Let's be honest with ourselves. If an adult believes in Santa, they are not practicing rational thought. Why does religion get a pass, and we aren't allowed to...

    God Saved Me

    I'm sick and tired of being afraid to share my

    opinion on this forum. Every time I speak my mind with regards to my lack of faith I end up having my account on EP suspended. I don't for one second believe it is a coincidence. The system is broken. The powers that be do not care to fix it.

    I don't get this, how come

    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?!

    I used to think you could believe in God

    without being religious. But that is impossible. Even if you believe in God, you are religious. You might not go to church, but you are still religious. Dictionary.com defines religion as a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when...

    that episode of the walking dead when Rick made Carl apologize for saying Heaven isn't real. I know it's only a tv show, but come on. If you need the thought of Heaven to get you through someone's death, you're just too afraid to face the truth. They're dead, they're gone. I...

    I dislike talking to Christians about

    I'm not sorry that atheist hurt your feelings.

    I'm not sorry that despite the easily available evidence they we consistently try get you to acknowledge, you still play the fool. I'm not sorry that you can't think for yourselves and can't form opinions without watching Fox News first. I'm not sorry that you're going to simply...

    I've noticed that if you post something under

    The argument for or against God is difficult

    and rather irrelevant. God is about faith, science is about observation, evidence, repeatable, testable, measurable experimentation. The burden of proof falls on the believers, and it is impossible to empirically prove a negative. Most atheists are agnostic. We don't believe...

    I honestly cannot comprehend how people don't

    think evolution exists. It is unfortunately something I completely cannot understand and no one has been able to explain to me why they think evolution isn't real without involving God or just plainly being stubborn and claiming the idea of evolution is idiotic.

    Militant Atheist

    We laugh at the idea of ancient Egyptians

    and such creating Gods for the rain or sun or death or harvest and yet people vehemently worship the modern "God". How does that make sense?
