    are atheists really treated

    that bad in the usa or is that just people making a big deal out of it ? if you mention here that you are an atheist most people will just shrug and wonder why you mention it at all.

    Can I just take a moment to appreciate those on

    my Facebook page who, when requesting prayer on Facebook, ask "For those of you who pray,..." Instead of "everybody pray for ..." It's a small thing, and the latter isn't a bad thing to say, but it's just a nice reminder that some people realize not everybody thinks the way they...

    I just love atheists.

    They're like, the most open-minded people. They never control you, never convince you to believe in myths, beliefs or superstitions. Just pure fact and pure science. I'm not saying that religion is bull or anything like that. Besides, I respect the belief, and the good values...

    Burden Of Proof

    Whenever somebody makes a claim, there is a necessary burden of proof on the claimant, which is to provide a level of evidence that supports their claim. The more extraordinary the claim, the more substantial the burden of proof becomes. For example, if I were to claim that there...

    I was raised Christian,

    everyone in my family believes in god like hard core. About 4 years ago I really started to question what I was so blindly believing. I made the realization that religion is a compete and utter lie. I have resentment towards it, but that's a different story... I have never told...

    I responded to one of the spammer's messages.

    She said if I didn't stop, she would call the police, and that I would be "falling into her plan." While I doubt the police will get involved, I'm sure her plan is to make Atheists look bad by instigating them into an argument, and then play the victim. I leave this here as a...

    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...

    I once meet an extremely religious person,

    who assumed that, because I'm an atheist, the cross on her necklace would burn my skin if pressed against it. When it didn't, she helpfully made the sizzling sounds with her mouth. Twice.

    The Beatuy Of Not Knowing

    What Atheism Mean To Me - A Short Essay

    Atheism is liberty.  Its freedom of free-thought.  Its freedom to explore, learn, and educate.  Its freedom to love, laugh, and live without hatred or bigotry.  Its freedom of speech; freedom to criticize and analyze all subjects without limitations.  ...

    I don't have to worry about whether my actions will displease God. I don't have to worry about whether being gay will put me in Hell. I can take comfort in the fact that death will be a quiet, peaceful nothingness that will be better than anything religious people can dream up.
