    Militant Atheist

    Enough is enough! It's time to draw that line in the sand. For too long, for millennia, since man first started to form societies we have had our view of the universe tainted with religion. To say that theists have had a fair crack at the whip would be understatement in the...

    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.

    They say Atheist's have no sense of humor

    but I find the bible very comical. I, in all honesty love reading the bible. Its so funny, epic, and entertaining. Its pretty much the most amazing science fiction and horror book ever written, even Eli Roth of Hostel couldn't write better for a movie. See? We have a sense of...

    What's great about being an atheist on Xmas is

    that you get to skip all the boring and irrelevant crap..and jump straight into stuffing yourself, getting very drunk and PRESENTS! Because that's what Christmas is really for :p

    Born Atheist

    I was watching my baby girl in awe in this morning while reading the comments on my last EP story and could help but think.  My eight month old daughter is delightfully happy; I'm sure as most eight month olds.  She is cruising and taking a few steps on her own...

    I am an atheist for the simple reason

    that I do not see any evidence for the existence of the supernatural realm. Nothing, not one shred of evidence. I do not believe so called "holy books" are written and divinely inspired by some God. Books like the Bible cannot even describe how this planet and life on it came...

    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...

    Hi! This is going to sound really odd

    but I'm not a believer but I'm also not an atheist. I believe that something created this world but I'm not going to claim that I know because honestly I have no idea and I think that nobody knows for sure either. I don't get why people care so much about what created the...

    I do not tolerate religion.

    This doesn't make me a bad person for not respecting others' beliefs. Why? Because belief in God causes people to believe crap like, uh, an imaginary friend in the sky. Religion clouds the mind and makes people think that climate change is caused by God's anger and not human...

    I don't get this, how come

    if we say God doesn't exist or anything like that, it's deemed offensive, but if religious people say about God(s) being magnificent and stuff like that, it's never said to be offensive to us?!

    If at first you find yourself struggling with

    Religious persons say

    that god exist and dwells in the hearts and minds of those who believe. So technically, is it that he doesn't actually exist?

    It doesn't take any effort to be an atheist.

    It takes none of your time, and you don't even have to think about it. In fact, you can't even really BE an atheist, because an atheist isn't something that can be defined by itself. There are people who believe a god exists. We call them theists. Atheists are simply not them.

    The argument for or against God is difficult

    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.

    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...
