    Religion And Science Are Not Opposites.

    Religion and Science are not opposites.  Science attempts to predict the future, by observing, suggesting a rule that appears to apply and testing that rule.  Science encourages dissent, because it is through dissent that rules are refined and become better predictors...

    A Bible Belt Atheist

    Being an atheist in the Bible Belt is an quite experience.  I wear my beliefs (lack there of) proudly at college, because I am likely to run into more alike-minded people (about 1 or 2 at a time), though I get talks from people all the time trying to convert me, or trying to...

    Not Sure.

    What exactly is a "strong" atheist, anyway? I don't believe in God, I know that, but I was just wondering if there was a big difference between "atheist" and "strong atheist.   Anyway, I'm a recent atheist, I suppose.  A combination...

    I am atheist because I believe that

    if there was really a God, He would not be so cruel. I see children born with awful defects that will impair them for the rest of their lives. What does God do? Does He laugh as He watches the people who will never be able to live a full life? If so, He doesn't deserve to be a...

    The way things are explained is great. I like the way she speaks and not have the superior feeling that she's smart for being an Atheist and everyone else is dumb. And remains respectful and mature. VeganAtheist also has an Mature attitude when he debates things.

    In my opinion, the purpose of religion is: 1)

    discipline of the masses, as laws can be broken and you might escape justice, but God sees everything; 2) comfort provided by praying and believing everything will be fine; 3) contolling and persuading masses to induce peace or war; 4) connecting people, making them help each...

    and people will finally shake this vestigial remnant of mass ignorance and tool to control the masses known as religion. If given enough time, without destructive interference of those in power, there might have been hope. However, chances are we will destroy ourselves anyways.
