    I Am An Athiest

    yes for real. I was raised a christian and began drifting after I nearly got sucked into a cult.  The experience prompted me to trust my ability draw my own conclusions. The death knell for my faith came when I finished Karen Armstrong's "History of God." Her book...

    A Harmonious Life Of Athiesm

    My awakening came when, as a young teenager, I read Bertrand Russel's "Why I Am Not A Christian." It was then that was taking a look at religions other than my own, Catholicism. The strong, ethical, messages in that book were both a daunting challenge and a release. I had to be...

    I Atheist All The Time

    I believe I just atheisted all over the floor, and got some on the wall too. I also don't collect stamps and I don't snowboard. Not that I avoid doing those things, I just never get around to doing them. I'm so going to hell for not praying to God, getting my fingers sticky, or...

    It all fit together, like a puzzle (cliche or not), just perfectly.  I am 41 and what seemed like a very long journey finally came to a beginning.  One that finally makes great sense. I say beginning because it really is the start of something.  There are things...

    Why Can't Theists See That The Universe Came From Nothing?

    Thanks to Quantum Mechanics we know for a fact that the existence of the universe is the result of inflation from quantum randomness. The existence of virtual particles that randomly pop in and out of existence from nothingness firmly buttresses a wholly naturalistic explanation...

    Eight Year Old Smarter Than I

    The other day my son asked, if god created everything, who created him?  I was so overwhelmed with how smart the question was, coming from an eight year old, that I could not give him an answer for a moment or two.  How wonderful that he had come up with this.  I...

    I don't believe in god at all,

    to me the bible is just a book of fiction. It all sounds so fake. I think it's just a book someone wrote long ago that everybody took too seriously.

    I don't really know where to post this.

    .. Would someone please try to explain to me how atheists explain bigbang/creation/beginning of life. There is supposedly both micro and macro evolution, how do you explain that? I'm not trying to get at anyone here, I'm simply curious.

    We all have different opinions.

    No one has a moratorium on what happens after we die. No one is always right. I respect your right to be wrong. I expect you to be wrong a lot. And to disagree with me. Because you are not me, I know you will never ever agree with everything I do. I am me. Even I don't agree...
