    I Was Raised In A Christian Family.

    I'm wondering when people will stop blindly following what they're told by other people, and learn to think for themselves. If you would take a step back and educate yourself, rather than go along with whatever people say, you might begin to question the religion you've been...

    After seeing all that I have off the world in

    the little amount of time that I have been here so far, I now find it hard to make myself believe in a god. Certainly one such as the one in the Christian bible. It contradicts far too much. I think if I could choose to believe in a god it wouldn't be the usual ones, but...

    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...

    Hey Atheist! Leave Them Kids Alone! ! Response to Kimosabi:

      Response to Kimosabi, created new story for formatting reasons. I don’t want to read a story sized comment in an ugly text block; I guess no-one else does either. I’m looking for a good reason why Atheists should leave religious alone, so if you have something...

    And I've Got My Reasons

    First off - I have read the bible. cover to cover, so I am not knocking what I don't know. And I am quite open to the possibility of a higher power. What I do not believe in is the God of organised religion. Personally the thought of the enemy-smiting, gold-loving, children...

    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...

    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...

    I'm still undecided when it comes to the

    How Do I Do This Every Day?

    So, I teach at a Catholic School. My job not only expects me to believe and promote god, but to revel in it. Every day, I must lead my students in prayer, profess to them the glories of their religion, and - in my estimation - brainwash them to "believe." And I am a good...

    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...

    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...

    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...
