I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,693 People

    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...

    I've noticed that if you post something under

    this experience, the social religious warriors always seem to appear to bring you illogical arguments and insults. Am I offensive in my dealings with these people? Yes, not immediately, but yes. I'm far from unmanageable. There are plenty of people that pose good arguments and I...

    I have never believed in a "god".

    I want to believe, but I can't, and it is sad. I do believe in a higher power, just not a man on a cloud. I really really want to believe, but how can I?

    I find it amusing that

    when people find out I'm an Atheist they assume I have no morals or ethics.

    doing business in Indiana. I'll sit back and enjoy watching their economy slowly crumble to the ground.

    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 seems Indiana has joined the ranks to

    legalize discrimination. Respect to salesforce. And to their CEO for standing up against hatred disguised as freedom. http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2015/03/salesforce-cancels-all-travel-to-indiana-wont-subject-customers-or-employees-to-discrimination/#.VRRfZwruLKQ.facebook

    You think evolution is a ludicrous idea yet you fully believe some random deity in the sky created the Earth for funsies? Really?

    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 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?!

    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...

    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?

    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...

    Religion easily has the greatest bullsh*t story

    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...

    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.

    Christianity is the religion

    that I think is the stupidest. God sent down his son who was also him to do miracles for no apparent reason then he sacrificed his son/him to himself for our sins even though he could just easily have forgiven people.
