I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 14,355 People

    Okay I need to hardcore rant about Christians

    right now. Like, I am so flipping annoyed at how they act like the victim ALL THE TIME. "Oh wah, the mean atheist told me my god isn't real." All the while they have national holidays dedicated to their religion. "Oh wah the ***** is allowed to get an abortion" all the while it...

    It's quite a shame that the majority of people

    are brainwashed into believing their family's religion!

    I heard on the radio,

    an ad for Vacation Bible Camp, or something like that. Sounded like an oxymoron. It was a summer camp "where kids can go to enjoy learning about God." Yes, he actually said that. Out loud. On the radio.

    Atheists & Anger - A Blog By Greta Christina

    ATHEISTS AND ANGER   I want to talk about atheists and anger.   This has been a hard piece to write, and it may be a hard one to read. I'm not going to be as polite and good-tempered as I usually am in this blog; this piece is about anger, and for once I'm going to...

    My husband and I saw Steven Spielberg's

    "Jurassic World" last night. The movie shows dinosaurs and homo sapiens on planet earth at the same time. The premise is that scientists took their DNA and made more dinosaurs now. The special effects are amazing. Quite a horror movie that is! The existence of dinosaurs...

    I don't get how so many fundies (Fundamentalist

    Christians) claim hell exists. Are they admitting to dying and actually being there long enough to observe and then come back to us? Sure there are near death experiences but even those are backed up by science. Unless anyone has proof that this hell exists I will be an atheist...

    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.

    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 once had a very good conversation with an

    Islamic man when I was still a Christian (RC) and we talked about our lives and beliefs and we had an astonishing amount in common. He used Mohammed as a role model, just as I tried to model myself on Jesus. Neither of us cared about heaven - we didn't even really want to go to...

    I noticed that when people die,

    others say things like, "they were taken too soon" or "why was he/she taken from me". Nobody was "taken". They just died. Taken implies they're still alive.

    Religion is the systematic marketing of fear.

    Blessed are the poor (donate heavily). Blessed are the meek (obey). Blessed are the humble (don’t question authority). Blessed are the hungry (make us rich while you starve). Blessed are the merciful (if you catch us doing something wrong, let it go). Blessed are the pure of...

    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...

    So what is the convention really,

    we don't go to 'their' groups and 'they' don't come to ours? I just was kind of shown the door in a Christian group in a not to suble way, does that mean there are unwritten rules about that? What are those really? Doesn't it make sense to make a group "I want to discuss the...

    My wife and I were watching Frontline about

    growing up transgender and one boy's father was not supportive due to his beliefs. She had been rather quiet up to this point, when she suddenly spoke up. "Religion sucks," she said. "It's all about religion." That's why I married her.

    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?
