    Muhammed: "He who has a morning meal of seven

    ajwa dates will not suffer harm that day through poison or magic.” (Bukhari, Hadith 5327 and Muslim, Hadith 3814) Magic left aside, this hadith is heavy in implications. It sounds falsifiable and could ridicule some Muslim apologists' tenets if wrong (as many of them hail...

    People Should Respect!

    My words are for Christians in here, "I am an atheist". So, you go to the "I am an Atheist" experience as a Christian and write comments as you wish under people's experiences, instead of ep's being a free site which people can share their opinion freely and searching for...

    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 Saved Me

    A pastor once said that

    when you die you go to heaven but your spouse isn't there if they are dead, he said you meet only your family in heaven. I don't understand this man's logic, I am assuming your family means immediate family so how is it that your parents are there if one cannot be with a spouse...

    Ignostic, agnostic, and atheist all in one.

    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...

    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.

    Religion has run out of justifications.

    Thanks to the telescope and the microscope, it no longer offers an explanation of anything important. Where once it used to be able, by its total command of a worldview, to prevent the emergence of rivals, it can now only impede and retard—or try to turn back—the measurable...
