I Am An Atheist

    So I got acquired my first block today by a

    theist; I don't know how I feel about this, I'm on one side angry at the illogical thought process, and then on the other hand in relived, at least they had the courtesy to move on.

    I've noticed that if you post something under

    this experience, the social religious warriors always seem to appear to bring you illogical arguments and insults. Am I offensive in my dealings with these people? Yes, not immediately, but yes. I'm far from unmanageable. There are plenty of people that pose good arguments and I...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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 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?!
