    Atheists have higher IQ’s

    than theists. Their intelligence makes them more likely to dismiss religion as irrational and unscientific. We should consider this before we jump into arguments with theists: Atheists tend to be more intelligent than religious people. Researchers found that those with high IQ...

    What Atheism Mean To Me - A Short Essay

    Atheism is liberty.  Its freedom of free-thought.  Its freedom to explore, learn, and educate.  Its freedom to love, laugh, and live without hatred or bigotry.  Its freedom of speech; freedom to criticize and analyze all subjects without limitations.  ...

    It annoys me when people say

    that "god" will support me/help me or "god" gave me the ability to be good at something. They need to learn that nothing affects nothing. If a person prays to "god" to pay their debts, they is still going to be in debt.

    Born Again Atheist

    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.

    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...

    although she doesn't believe in organised religion. My dad is... Well, my dad just doesn't care about that kind of stuff. Neither of them ever forced me to believe like they did. They taught me how to think, but they let me think for myself. I am an Atheist by my own choosing.

    Spambot Amazinggod aka Jesuslovesmeforever

    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...

    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?!
