    I'm impressed to a very negative extent

    when someone shoves religion in your face, you argue with provable fact to the contrary, you are assaulted with excerpts from the bible which are not valid in such a discussion, and then, when they have no reply, they see to it that the entire debate is erased. One has to...

    I find it amusing that

    when people find out I'm an Atheist they assume I have no morals or ethics.

    you all seem to believe

    that the ancient romans invented the crucifixion. It's a much older form of capital punishment, it goes back (likely) to the Persians http://christianity.about.com/od/goodfriday/a/crucifixionhist.htm

    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?

    Thank you to all the **** sticks

    that find it necessary to call me the "next Hitler". Just because I myself, do not believe in "God" does not mean I have any problem with someone who's Jewish, Islamic, Christian, etc. Nor will I sit down and have a debate upon the belief.

    My biggest pet peeve is

    when someone asks an atheist, "why are you so against God?". What part of "atheist" is unclear? I'm not against God, I don't hate God, I don't worship Satan, because I believe none of it. I'm not anti God, I just don't have the time of day for it, quite honestly. I've always...

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It's alright if you're religious.

    Just answer me this...Were you raised as a child being told that God was real? Or did some sort of miracle happen that the only probable cause could have been God make you believe?

    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.
