    My conversion to Atheism has made me appreciate

    the world around me and the people in my life, including myself, so much more. When I was a Christian, the thought of an afterlife promoted my suicidality. I always saw death as a progression, not an end, and hence saw committing suicide as just a faster way to get to the...

    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.

    It's quite a shame that the majority of people

    are brainwashed into believing their family's religion!

    Here is why I hate organized religion: It is

    one of the few ideas in this world that prevents people from seeking the truth through facts and scientific evidence by threatening them with an eternity of misery and pain. The only other idea that comes close to the mark is a form of pure totalitarianism. Mono Theocracies...

    Born Again Atheist

    I was brought up in a christian house, I went to church every sunday with sunday school, and youth camps and everything. I even did that whole thing where you stand up in front of the whole church and ask to be saved. That night me and my dad sat in my room, and prayed to god to...

    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...

    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.

    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 am atheist. I don't believe in God

    and I never really have. I don't remember a time being little when I believed in God. My mom is a Christian but she's one of the quiet, respectable ones and she never pushed anything on me, thankfully. I've just never been scared of going to hell because I don't believe in hell...

    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...

    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'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...

    We hear a lot about religious extremists,

    I don't believe in God.

    But just like religion doesn't make you morally superior, being an atheist doesn't make you intellectually superior. I can't stand when people behave like they are.

    It is a mistake to lump all people together

    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...

    Militant Atheist

    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.
