    I feel like an awful person

    but I am so tired of hearing and seeing people claim how much they love Jesus and God. How they are better people, how they'll get through any and everything, how they are so blessed and blah blah blah. I get it. You're all about that Christian life. Good for you. But I don't...

    If I ever have kids, I'm going to raise them

    away from religion. I'm not going to tell them about Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, or the Easter Bunny either.

    I love being an atheist.

    I don't have to worry about whether my actions will displease God. I don't have to worry about whether being gay will put me in Hell. I can take comfort in the fact that death will be a quiet, peaceful nothingness that will be better than anything religious people can dream up.

    Burden Of Proof

    Whenever somebody makes a claim, there is a necessary burden of proof on the claimant, which is to provide a level of evidence that supports their claim. The more extraordinary the claim, the more substantial the burden of proof becomes. For example, if I were to claim that there...

    Everyone can just throw

    that apology for spamming with fake accounts out the window because it is happening again. Also, since you keep deleting my comments, no, Christian atheism is not loving God without religion. It is thinking God doesnt exist and following Jesus as a moral guide. When you post...

    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...

    and their thoughts and views... Then don't like the group. Don't read or respond to people's posts. It's just that simple.

    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...

    Please, if you are christian stay the **** out.

    Read the experience thread. It says atheist. That means we don't want to hear about how god loves us and how you will pray for us. Stay in your religious groups. You don't come here and we won't go there. I added this to talk to other atheist not to be told to turn to god and...

    I once meet an extremely religious person,

    who assumed that, because I'm an atheist, the cross on her necklace would burn my skin if pressed against it. When it didn't, she helpfully made the sizzling sounds with her mouth. Twice.

    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.

    I responded to one of the spammer's messages.

    She said if I didn't stop, she would call the police, and that I would be "falling into her plan." While I doubt the police will get involved, I'm sure her plan is to make Atheists look bad by instigating them into an argument, and then play the victim. I leave this here as a...

    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?!
