I Am An Atheist

    I've talked to enough fundies to know

    that they view atheism as evil because they don't want to be held responsible for their actions. In short that's all God is. Have a good day.

    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...

    A creepy loudmouth Youtube Pastor Josh

    Feuerstein caught my attention who asked his sheep for money to buy a red one. He got alot of cash but never used the Red one. Always using his iphone. So hundreds of generous Christians donated money to that Donkey for nothing. had it been someone else then he'll be sued the...

    I GUESS I AM THE ONE WHO IS INSANE.

    THE CHRISTIANS ARE THE SANE ONES. I just had a rather vivid flashback. I don't know what triggered it. It couldn't have been the Christian claiming to be an agnostic atheist earlier who threatened to take his rusty, excrement covered cutting tool and detach a certain...

    Religion is like soul food.

    Good for your comfort but bad for the Health. Alot of Christians take comfort in the existance of heaven and feeling safe from hell. But It's bad for the health because...Well you already know why It's not good for the health.

    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...

    Born Atheist

    well I feel like there's a lot of

    existentialism to evil. For instance, two factions fighting each other in a war might consider the enemy to be evil. And being that there are atrocities of war and murder which occur, its fair to say there is a level of evilness on both sides, but they were doing it under the...

    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...

    Imagine that we could revive a well-educated

    Christian of the fourteenth century. The man would prove to be a total ignoramus, except on matters of faith. His beliefs about geography, astronomy, and medicine would embarrass even a child, but he would know more or less everything there is to know about God.

    I just saw a video about God vs Evolution.

    The interviewer (who is probably a religious nut) kept asking is there any observable evidence to Evolution. From ape to man. Obviously The interviewer knows nothing about Evolution because we did not Evolve from apes we only shared a common ancestor. It takes 5 seconds of your...

    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?

    my daughter was running around with a Mormon

    pamphlet yesterday (must have come in the mail.) I looked at it and saw that their depiction of Jesus is a tall, handsome, white man with short cropped hair and blue eyes. these are also the guys who believe Jesus came to America right? wtf?

    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.

    Militant Atheist

    All these Christians coming on my post,

    it's quite annoying really. Why are they looking at atheist post if their not atheists? Why do they care so much about what is more than likely a photoshopped *****. Get over yourselves and let me watch "The Theory of Everything" in peace

    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.

    It is astonishing (and a little frightening) to

    see what passes for reasoning in religion. Some group called the IslamToday fatwa committee will serve as a prime example of religious reasoning. They have stated that: 1. It is inconceivable that the true word of Allah could ever contradict scientific fact, since the universe...
