    Could atheism be considered a religion?

    ? I certainly know it's a ridiculous question and really absurd. Its just that my friend who believes in creationism is talking about evolution to be a belief just like creationism is a belief and he almost refers to atheists as being people belonging to a religion with for...

    Are Christians above the law?

    So, someone on my Facebook said they were

    considering giving religion a shot. Another person commented saying and I quote, "Not sure if religion will work for you but Christianity certainly will." And I...I just...couldn't.

    I find it amusing that

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

    So my mother and grandmother are Christians.

    Born Again Christians, though I'm not sure that makes a difference in anything. And they both told me they aren't religious nor is Christianity a religion. Their reasoning? Because religious people killed Jesus. Does this make sense to anyone or should I just keep giving them...

    Jesus177 has made a prophecy!

    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.

    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.

    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?!

    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'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...

    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...

    People lack belief in all sorts of things.

    Some things make more sense to disbelieve than others. For me in particular I look for evidence to verify the validity of various statements of belief. I do not require anyone to believe me on faith and do not expect to hear any convincing arguments based around faith.
