    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...

    I grew up Catholic,became mormon in my 20's

    and talked with many people of other faiths. Read the bible many times and other books of religious topics and soon began to question things and was told I lacked faith and would be punished. Lost my faith and found my myself in the journey. I live my life being a human, not...

    So, let me get this straight.

    You think evolution is a ludicrous idea yet you fully believe some random deity in the sky created the Earth for funsies? Really?

    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...

    A creepy loudmouth Youtube Pastor Josh

    when I was a theist I used to believe plenty of

    absurd things. I would also use it to justify discrimination against homosexuals, non religious, and in weird ways even sometimes certain races especially largely non-Christian races. My favorite part of being an atheist is that I finally have a consistent (evidence based) world...

    Religion and Video Games Ok I thought I'd make

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Vanity. All is vanity.

    This is the over-riding message of the biblical book, "Ecclesiastes". Eat, drink, and be merry. Make merry with your wife. Make merry with your self. Ultimately, it all means nothing. Vanity. All is vanity. You see, even an author of one of the books of the bible declares...

    There's a legitimate reason

    for why I consider polytheism to be superior to monotheism. Polytheism allows for multiple gods and goddesses to exist simultaneously. This allows for a checks and balances system observed in modern democracy. Monotheism on the other hand is the worship of only one God which...

    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?

    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...
