    Christianity=fascism?

    Let me draw some parallels here.  Tell me if I'm out of line. Parallel #1. A:  Hitler says there will be a master race.  Everyone else (jews, gays, etc) will get sent to a concentration camp. B.  God says Christians are his chosen people.  All jews...

    my whole family believes in God

    but I'm the only one who doesn't, at the beginning of my teenage years I had doubt about the existence of God cause for me it doesn't really matter if God is real or not, there is no heaven or hell. No angels or demon and no afterlife. one day, I'll just existing and that's it!

    Unindoctrinated

    Having never been religious, I feel that I lack the vehemence that former theists who have become atheist sometimes have. I have no axe to grind. I've never been lied to in the same way that they have. I can understand the anger--but it's simply not there for me. I have nothing...

    I Don't Believe In a God Other Than Myself

    The group I joined is "I don't believe in God". It's funny, as soon as I clicked the 'Me Too' button I smiled. That old fear of god had crept in for just a moment and reminded me of how I was going to burn in hell for saying such a thing. Somehow, all I could do is...

    And I'm sick of people getting offended

    and demanding proof. I don't owe them an explanation anymore than they owe me one. I was born Christian and no number of scriptures, passages, or prayers will make my heart burst with love for the lord or make me cry shining tears of joy and awe. No. And my lack of religion...

    It's not a bad thing to not believe in God.

    People get so passionate over the beliefs of others. My only problem with religion is when people try to push their beliefs onto me or tell me I'm wrong or bad for not believing in something that I simply don't believe in. I think the concept of a God is simply illogical and...

    The whole religious thing

    and believing in God or life after death thing just totally baffles me. You may as well believe in Fairies or Aliens. That is just as bizarre. It just doesn't make any sense to me at all how people can believe in God. To me, he is just a mythical creature told in stories and...

    No way. Or any other religions

    for that matter. They're all the same. Cults that brainwash people from a young age into believing that a "man in the sky" will decide whether they go to a cold place or a hot place.

    "Believe" Is Such An Odd Word.

    I believe in lots of things. I believe quantum physics and relativistics might one day be unified. I believe in the power of love. I believe whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and I believe in the fairies at the bottom of the garden. I believe in Bigfoot, in Elvis...

    Why "god" Is Bullshit

    Try Praying. Did it work? I think not. Also, think of it this way: If you pray to "God" for a bike, you won't get one, but if you steal a bike and pray for forgiveness, he will give you that. If "God" is all about loving everybody and forgiveness, then how come he says that gays...

    The Bible

    When I was in high school, I was an over achiever. My freshman year, I was given a list of books to read before college. On this list it said "a good portion of the bible, for the purpose of Theology/ Philosophy classes" ... so I read the entire thing. Up until that point, I did...

    No

      I don't think any knowledge of religion qualifies anyone to believe or disbelieve god. If you do, you do...for your own reasons. If you don't, then the same, although probably for much more sensible reasons. I do not allow for any possibility of a deity short of an...

    It seems as though Missreedy has had her cage rattled. A deep insecurity, especially if she has blocked vociferous non-believers like me. Here's an observation. Just by reading her post it seems to me that she doesn't believe in the afterlife surely enough - but more the...

    I Was Raised As An Atheist

    This is what I DO believe: nothing matters.

    Not a single thing we do will ever matter. Why? Because we will all be forgotten in time. Sure celebrities, famous history figures will be remembered a little longer than the average person, but everything will fade. There is no afterlife or heaven/hell. When you die you simply...

    No God; No Soul

    The great thing that comes along with the absence of faith is the loss of the need to believe in the human soul. I know that I dont have a soul and I know that I dont need a soul. The idea of a soul I believe comes from man's fear of death. The soul and gods...
