    I Am Afraid Of Dating The Man Of My Dreams Because He Is Christian

    I lost my virginity two nights ago to a 42 year old man. I am 18 years old. I am not in love with him, but I would love to see him again. But I am afraid of getting into a relationship with him. He is wonderful, kind, sexy. But I don't know if I want to pursue him further. Not...

    It's fascinating to see the different tactics

    theists use when you assail the Old Testament for its blood lustful God. These include: a) Say the Old Testament does not apply any more because Jesus overturned all that old ****. b) Justify God ordering the killing of Amalekite babies, the children and the women. One angry...

    I'm becoming fed up with religious people,

    especially Christians. They fail to realize that their entire religion is stolen from various other religions and primitive myths.

    That awkward moment when you're arguing with

    someone and all they do is repeat the same thing and then proceed to tell you you'll have to answer to God in the end.

    I've always been more of a science person,

    and I see no possible scientific explanation of how he exists. If God exists, then why are there many different religions out there? It is simply a mere human illusion. Even historians say that since humans didn't have the technology to explain things like why the sky is blue...

    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...

    Who knows john lennon?

    The man who wanted to bring peace and love to the world, and he did. That man was also an atheist. He was an atheist that was murdered by a christian. This was all part of 'gods' plan right?

    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?!

    It annoys me when people say

    that "god" will support me/help me or "god" gave me the ability to be good at something. They need to learn that nothing affects nothing. If a person prays to "god" to pay their debts, they is still going to be in debt.

    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...
