    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...

    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?

    I love it when I'm in a "conversation" with a

    bigoted believer who is trying to use a Bible passage to justify their discrimination against me, and I give them a link to one of their own Web sites that explains what the passage really means, and the conversation thread mysteriously disappears.

    Just saw the funiest comment on the clip of

    Take me to Church on youtube, I quote : *All you "Christians" can say what you want, but the fact that shrimp is called an abomination in the bible SIX times more than homosexuality yet you choose to eat it and call out and ostracize gays instead? Just know you are going to...

    So it just struck me.

    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.

    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...

    I am exhausted about debate of atheism/theism.

    All I saw are two groups of people exchanging name-calling and insults. Nobody will learn anything new. Enjoy your life. Good bye.

    "If there were a DNA test to see

    if a baby is gay in the womb, would religious people be for or against aborting it?" Food for thought.

    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.

    I had a chat with satan the other day,

    and he basically said that vast majority of Christians are going to hell anyway for angrily refusing to turn down a free joint and relax. God doesn't like to kick it with stressed out people who are always at work telling others who's in and who's not, so he finally got sick of...

    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...

    God Saved Me

    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...

    I see a lot of believers react personally

    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...

    I am god! I created man to be imperfect.

    I made man in a way so they can not help but to sin. Then I made those sins morally wrong. Then the only way I can to forgive the flawed creatures I made for breaking the laws I chose is to impregnate a young woman with myself so she can give birth to me so I can grow up and be...

    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.

    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'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...

    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...
