    Attention all atheists.

    I want each of you to block Princessx2. It's for your own sanity, plus do it for the lulz.

    I don't believe in god,

    but it's really annoying when Atheists go running around telling people there is no god. That's unnecessary. Let other people believe what they want. I'm sure you don't like it when people shove their religious jargon down everyone's throats. So why are you doing the same thing...

    I can see why people get pushed away.

    I'm not an atheist. But I am beginning to wonder if there is a God. Because how can anybody think that being abused by family is okay? Because that is what God wants? If that is what I have to look forward to through those gates of heaven, then I don't want it.

    I was brought up in the kind of household

    where we weren't forced to go to church but went occasionally for things like Easter services or stuff like that. I find it hard to believe in any god because of all the negative things that happen in the world - rape, animal/child abuse, murder, wars etc to name just a few...

    God is the ultimate stalker psycho ex.

    He loves you!!! He loves you so much that he watches you all the time. He watches while you sleep. While you eat. While you lay with your SO. He loves you so much, that if you don't love him back, he will burn you forever in a fiery pit! I think we need to get a...

    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 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...

    It gets lonely sometimes.

    Most of my closest friends from High School and College are atheists, which is rather surprising because more than half are artists, and statistically artists tend to be more spiritual than scientific. I'm thankful to have very smart friends. But lately, as we all get older and...

    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...

    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...

    hypothetical theory at length. History is written by the victors. What if, God and the devil exist, BUT, Lucifer was actually a benevolent creator, or as an over-literal reading of Genesis 1 and 2 suggests, all creation and people were created by "us" plural Gods, and Lucifer...

    Somebody asked me if atheists hate God,

    I'm not atheist, but I'd hope not. I just said they have no belief in God(s) not a hatred towards him/her.

    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'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...

    If you take God away from the corrupt,

    they won't change, but at least they can be exposed for who they truly are, instead of continuing to hide under the mask of righteousness.

    If we proved 100% without any doubts

    that God wasn't real right now, there would be mass suicides. Some people just don't have the mental/spiritual capability to handle the idea of the vast universe as it is. To them it's terrifying and lonely, and they need that imaginary omnipotent hand to hold just to survive it...

    My becoming an atheist was completely

    unemotional and had to do with science. But afterwords I went through some traumatic experiences where I lost some people who I didn't think I could live without because of my newfound lack of faith in fairytales. So I'm not mad a religion. I simply refuse to be hurt like that...

    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.

    Hi I'm an atheist. Apparently I have no morals.

    Because you know, I couldn't figure out murder is wrong without a 2000 year old badly translated and rewritten book to tell me that. That's why I kill people daily.......................... Oh wait......... I don't? Hmmmmmm. I wonder why?
