I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,208 People

    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.

    So this guy asked if humans existed

    when dinosaurs did, and apparently he was serious. I'm not even insulted, just amused. They actually blocked me too.

    Militant Atheist

    Enough is enough! It's time to draw that line in the sand. For too long, for millennia, since man first started to form societies we have had our view of the universe tainted with religion. To say that theists have had a fair crack at the whip would be understatement in the...

    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 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...

    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'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...

    If God is all powerful,

    why doesn't he just let everyone know he exists? Why doesn't he feed the starving children in Africa? Why doesn't he heal people of faith? If it's all a part of his plan, that means he planned for these people to hurt and die. You could say it's to make the rest of us appreciate...

    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.

    One quality that I find separates theists from

    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...
