    Not an atheist exactly.

    I believe there has to be something there when we die. We don't just die and see darkness! That's a pretty boring way to spend eternity! I just think it's stupid to deny people basic rights because of some intangible, invisible man in the sky. It's not right to tell a woman what...

    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...

    There Probably Is No God, Now Stop Worrying And Enjoy Youre Life.

    I figured it’s about time I wrote something about my atheism, how I became to be one and such. I suppose I was always really an atheist. I have a grandfather who is very Christian and wanted me to go to Sunday school as a child. Neither one of my parents (especially not my mum...

    Jesus Christ A False Messiah: The messiah,

    One of the main points of most religions

    and it's major interest grabber is immortality. That being said, that sounds like Hell. Life is fun, painful, and interesting, and what gives it these traits is it's tiny sliver of time it gets in the grand scale of things. Frankly, I'd hate to escape death. I would rather live...

    I love it when creationists say "Evolution is

    just a THEORY, it has little evidence". A theory is, theoretically, the highest level something can go in science. Gravity's also a theory, but we know that exists. They don't want to look into it, so they make stuff up to try and prove their point.

    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...
