I Am An Atheist

    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 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.
