    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.

    So here in the Middle East they don't teach

    evolution in schools. Lots of people have never even heard of it, and most of those who have think it's nothing more than a ridiculous theory which states that humans are descendants of monkeys. Of course I accept the theory of evolution but I just wanted to hear what one of the...

    Instead of calling theist what they are(apes)

    we should just call them what they think they are. Dirt.

    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.

    Atheists & Anger - A Blog By Greta Christina

    ATHEISTS AND ANGER   I want to talk about atheists and anger.   This has been a hard piece to write, and it may be a hard one to read. I'm not going to be as polite and good-tempered as I usually am in this blog; this piece is about anger, and for once I'm going to...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    without religion. Sounds weird but yes I mean to say it like. It is a hard thing for me to gather because I always thought it backwards. If people can't be moral without religion they are bad people to begin with. Think about it. The only thing telling them to be good is some...

    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?

    Crucifying the condemned was a hip punishment

    Militant Atheist

    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...
