I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 14,776 People

    Hi I'm an atheist. Apparently I have no morals.

    Because you know, I couldn't figure out murder is wrong without a 2000 year old badly translated and rewritten book to tell me that. That's why I kill people daily.......................... Oh wait......... I don't? Hmmmmmm. I wonder why?

    So, let me get this straight.

    You think evolution is a ludicrous idea yet you fully believe some random deity in the sky created the Earth for funsies? Really?

    Why do we as a society have to label everything?

    Why can't it just be; I don't believe what our ancestors beloved in. Or, maybe there is setting out there but I'm not sure, or yeah there is something. And just move on from there. Everything has a label, think outside the box and get rid of your label. Be kind to your...

    I Think, Therefore I Am (an Atheist)

    I am an atheist, and because of that I believe life is precious. Saying life is precious might sound like something a pro-life religious person would say, so allow me to explain my reasoning. I believe that this short life we are blessed with is all that we will ever have...

    I don't believe in god,

    but it's really annoying when Atheists go running around telling people there is no god. That's unnecessary. Let other people believe what they want. I'm sure you don't like it when people shove their religious jargon down everyone's throats. So why are you doing the same thing...

    Every atheists perhaps remember the boy

    who experienced heaven and then had a book come out right? Well turns out it was fake. He recanted his story. Ironically his parents tried hard to sell it. Allegedly most religious stores were forced to pull it from their shelves. How about that? http://www.truthrevolt.org...

    Born Again Atheist

    I was brought up in a christian house, I went to church every sunday with sunday school, and youth camps and everything. I even did that whole thing where you stand up in front of the whole church and ask to be saved. That night me and my dad sat in my room, and prayed to god to...

    Think about the story of heaven being an

    eternal paradise. If you buy into the story of heaven you need to realise there has already been war in heaven. Paradise?

    Why do Christians lie they have proof of god?

    They quite obviously don't and it's kinda funny watching them try to avoid the topic when I ask for the source of their "evidence" :P I have no problem with their belief but lying to get your point across in a debate is just lame.

    it's quite annoying really. Why are they looking at atheist post if their not atheists? Why do they care so much about what is more than likely a photoshopped *****. Get over yourselves and let me watch "The Theory of Everything" in peace

    I just saw a video about God vs Evolution.

    The interviewer (who is probably a religious nut) kept asking is there any observable evidence to Evolution. From ape to man. Obviously The interviewer knows nothing about Evolution because we did not Evolve from apes we only shared a common ancestor. It takes 5 seconds of your...

    if I say something like "the bible is wrong

    about the age of the earth." that is not Christian bashing. "but you're being intolerant of my beliefs!" no, I'm just saying your belief, in this instance, is provably wrong. that's not bigotry. it's not oppression. Fundies... what'll we do with you?

    So it's finally happened.

    I've finally lost a friend because of religion. He recently became super religious, now he's a completely different person. I can't even have a conversation without him mentioning his church or god. It's frustrating that people choose to enslave their minds to such nonsense.

    I am god! I created man to be imperfect.

    I made man in a way so they can not help but to sin. Then I made those sins morally wrong. Then the only way I can to forgive the flawed creatures I made for breaking the laws I chose is to impregnate a young woman with myself so she can give birth to me so I can grow up and be...

    Militant Atheist

    I've noticed a common argument

    when I'm talking religion with a Christian. They always bring up that one of us must be right, theoretically. Either it's God or nothing. They're in the clear because if there is a God, they receive no punishment but if there isn't, then nothing happens to them. So, obviously, I...

    Borderline agnostic (there will be thing we can

    never explain), but I live my life as an atheist in that I don't stop doing some things based on if it would be sinful. There are some things I feel are morally wrong, but I base that on my thought process and feelings more so than what a book describes. It does bother me most...

    No matter how stupid I think fundies are, I would never vote on a bill to restrict their rights to being religious. Notice how they chose to victimize people who did nothing to them. Is it just a coincidence? I don't think so. (I said this in a comment but I felt it needed to...

    It is astonishing (and a little frightening) to

    see what passes for reasoning in religion. Some group called the IslamToday fatwa committee will serve as a prime example of religious reasoning. They have stated that: 1. It is inconceivable that the true word of Allah could ever contradict scientific fact, since the universe...

    God's existence is a red herring.

    Whether or not God exists is by-and-large a red herring when it comes to most of the objections raised by rational people when it comes to religion. Generally speaking, conflict arises when we end up talking about "god's law". And this is where the manipulation happens...

    I always feel awkward

    when a religious person finds out I don't believe in God and tells me I'm going to hell. It's like, I know you're trying to threaten me but I don't believe in hell so your threat really fell short. I feel bad about it. I know they tried their best.

    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...

    Imagine that we could revive a well-educated

    Christian of the fourteenth century. The man would prove to be a total ignoramus, except on matters of faith. His beliefs about geography, astronomy, and medicine would embarrass even a child, but he would know more or less everything there is to know about God.
