I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,696 People

    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...

    I have never believed in a "god".

    I want to believe, but I can't, and it is sad. I do believe in a higher power, just not a man on a cloud. I really really want to believe, but how can I?

    I genuinely want to believe in the God

    that I was raised on but I can't. The bible has told us about many things, but are they the truth? Are the translations put in the bible telling the message it means to tell? Are Christians really living their whole lives worrying about pleasing God and saving their skin in the...

    I don't get this, how come

    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?!

    1 in 3 Americans deny evolution.

    Why not deny gravity too? It's just a theory, right? http://youtu.be/0Gykz_luLR0

    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...

    and ethical stance that emphasizes the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers critical thinking and evidence (rationalism, empiricism) over established doctrine or faith (fideism). The meaning of the term humanism has fluctuated...

    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 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...

    Thanks everyone who tries to help me by telling

    me I need Jesus. I need God. All will be good in God's time. God did this for a reason. In case you haven't noticed, I don't care about God. And I thought this website was more understanding than that. But no. All I get is Jesus and God thrown at me.

    Islam will become the religion of peace

    when it runs out of people to kill and women to subjugate. Sorry Muslims but you have at least 5.5 billion people to murder before you can be considered peaceful.

    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.

    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...

    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?

    Christianity is the religion

    that I think is the stupidest. God sent down his son who was also him to do miracles for no apparent reason then he sacrificed his son/him to himself for our sins even though he could just easily have forgiven people.

    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...
