I Am An Atheist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 13,855 People

    I've noticed that if you post something under

    this experience, the social religious warriors always seem to appear to bring you illogical arguments and insults. Am I offensive in my dealings with these people? Yes, not immediately, but yes. I'm far from unmanageable. There are plenty of people that pose good arguments and I...

    I Think, Therefore I Am (an Atheist)

    I am an atheist, and because of that I believe life is precious. Saying life is precious might sound like something a pro-life religious person would say, so allow me to explain my reasoning. I believe that this short life we are blessed with is all that we will ever have...

    So it just struck me.

    Does anyone else notice how ironic it is that each God or Goddess or any deity just so happens to mysteriously represent the race the person is? Just a thought.

    God Saved Me

    One single person from the upper floors of the twin towers survived.  Horribly burned, when the lone survivor left the hospital after more than a year, he made a brief statement to the media saying that it was a miracle that he survived and that god has saved him. What...

    God admitted a lot of times in the bible he

    regretted making humanity like I don't know how often a person can say "I hate you" and then your still willing to give unconditional love to someone who thinks you are dirty. It is kind of pathetic. I would not want to waste my time worshipping something who regrets me. That is...

    I had a chat with satan the other day,

    and he basically said that vast majority of Christians are going to hell anyway for angrily refusing to turn down a free joint and relax. God doesn't like to kick it with stressed out people who are always at work telling others who's in and who's not, so he finally got sick of...

    I am openly secular. Today,

    April 23 2015, is openly secular day. A day for those who are openly secular to speak out. To tell at least one person, who they are, and why they are secular. To remove the stigmas and misconceptions commonly associated with it. One of the ways I have chosen to do this today...

    Being an atheist or a believer doesn't

    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...

    I love it when I'm in a "conversation" with a

    bigoted believer who is trying to use a Bible passage to justify their discrimination against me, and I give them a link to one of their own Web sites that explains what the passage really means, and the conversation thread mysteriously disappears.

    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...

    So today I was going through the explore section

    and came across a post in the I Believe in God group. Now I never respond to these because it is not the forum for my views. In truth I rarely even read them, but this caught my eye. It was a young gay man, who is Christian and felt bad about it. But he knew god loves him. Some...

    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...

    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...
