    Three powerful words.

    ..I Don't Know. I don't know how this universe came to be before the Big Bang or why we are here. Somehow, those of faith in some God think they have that all figured out. I see no convincing and compelling evidence to suggest a "God' is the answer to those questions. So called...

    A beautiful speech from a teen in Wisconsin.

    This made me cry. If you haven't yet seen this speech from this brave girl who talks about her past as a Jehovah witness please watch. http://youtu.be/RDvT_gYq-ls

    I always feel awkward

    when a religious person finds out I don't believe in God and tells me I'm going to hell. It's like, I know you're trying to threaten me but I don't believe in hell so your threat really fell short. I feel bad about it. I know they tried their best.

    I live in a very small Texas bible town.

    There are more churches in this town than pretty much any other kind of business. I recently came out as an atheist and the backlash has been astounding. I've had people insult me, condemn me, and one person even assaulted me simply on the virtue of my non belief. Not only am I...

    I was raised Catholic

    but became a deist through a bit of reasoning and some literature from notable deists such as Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, and Ethan Allen. Eventually I discovered the fallacies in the deist arguments for God and became a Pantheist in the likes of Spinoza and John Toland...

    What is it about the scientific method

    that believers don't like or get? What is the scientific method? Simply an unbiased, repeatable way of looking at things to assess the truth behind them. Unbiased because results are dictated by evidence. Repeatable because you need to repeat things with the same result 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...

    Not a real Christian.

    So recently on another post in the atheist forum, one of the replies brought up the "real or true Christian" argument. This got me thinking. What defines a "real Christian"? So is it a sect choice? 40000 differing sects and sub sects of Christianity, each claiming the other...

    Using the Bible to justify your bigotry is

    powerful ******* stupid, especially if you're talking to an atheist. If you already know they're an atheist, making an argument with something you know they don't believe in only proves further that you people are irrational and insane.

    My words are for Christians in here, "I am an atheist". So, you go to the "I am an Atheist" experience as a Christian and write comments as you wish under people's experiences, instead of ep's being a free site which people can share their opinion freely and searching for...

    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 feel sorry for Americans.

    The country is run by religious nuts who want to drag them all back into the dark ages, and filled with citizens who feel the same way. One of many things that makes me weep for humanity is when they say not to listen to secular music because Satan is behind it. These idiots are...

    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...

    Born 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.

    I see an occasional comment from believers

    about how bleak and pointless life must be to an atheist - as if a belief in some nondescript eternal supernatural being somehow improves the picture. But what they don't realize is that that is an assessment THEY are making. For whatever reason, they think that if there is...

    I am god! I created man to be imperfect.

    Militant Atheist

    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...
