    Jesus177 has made a prophecy!

    She says that I will go blind within the next 3 days (by Friday the 23rd) and will only be healed by the power of prayer from a true Christian. She even said that if I do not go blind that she will admit that god doesn't exist. I hope that she will play honestly as I will be...

    So today I was going through the explore section

    and came across a post in the I Believe in God group. Now I never respond to these because it is not the forum for my views. In truth I rarely even read them, but this caught my eye. It was a young gay man, who is Christian and felt bad about it. But he knew god loves him. Some...

    Hi, I will tell you guys (don't get offend,

    is in general term) how I became atheist after been on a catholic family. I was born on a catholic family where going to church was almost an obligation, at least when my parents where together, they separate and my mother started to go with people that predict the future and...

    God admitted a lot of times in the bible he

    regretted making humanity like I don't know how often a person can say "I hate you" and then your still willing to give unconditional love to someone who thinks you are dirty. It is kind of pathetic. I would not want to waste my time worshipping something who regrets me. That is...

    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...

    Isn't it hilarious when you just discuss with

    someone about a religious topic and they block you? Jazzzpiano is obviously extremely insecure in his "belief" of creationism.

    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.

    My biggest pet peeve is

    when someone asks an atheist, "why are you so against God?". What part of "atheist" is unclear? I'm not against God, I don't hate God, I don't worship Satan, because I believe none of it. I'm not anti God, I just don't have the time of day for it, quite honestly. I've always...

    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...

    It's alright if you're religious.

    Just answer me this...Were you raised as a child being told that God was real? Or did some sort of miracle happen that the only probable cause could have been God make you believe?

    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...

    God is the ultimate stalker psycho ex.

    He loves you!!! He loves you so much that he watches you all the time. He watches while you sleep. While you eat. While you lay with your SO. He loves you so much, that if you don't love him back, he will burn you forever in a fiery pit! I think we need to get a...

    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.

    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...

    I'm impressed to a very negative extent

    when someone shoves religion in your face, you argue with provable fact to the contrary, you are assaulted with excerpts from the bible which are not valid in such a discussion, and then, when they have no reply, they see to it that the entire debate is erased. One has to...

    Does anyone else notice how ironic it is that each God or Goddess or any deity just so happens to mysteriously represent the race the person is? Just a thought.

    Militant Atheist

    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?

    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.

    The theory presented by Ms.
