I Don't Believe In God

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,753 People

    I know He truly exists,

    though I don't believe most of the things in the Bible starting with the creation stories, they make no sense to me at all so I would rather go with Darwin's Theory. Despite all this, I don't like Him as much as am expected to. I don't think He likes me either and people like me...

    I don't believe in the concept of God

    that people hold. I don't believe that any consciousness/person created everything, and definitely not for the sake of being worshipped. But I do believe in gods and goddesses on a less extreme level.

    Okay, so there are people

    that KNOW he exists, but how? What has he done for you? My mom is a hardcore Christian, and I don't understand. Some of the people at her church are seriously so ******* crazy. Like if someone drops a spoon and picks it up they're like "I thank you lord for giving me the...

    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.

    It just drives me up a wall

    when a crisis happens and the first thing people say is "The good lord saved me." Mmkay. Well I'm guessing your God condones favoritism too. What a nonsensical thing to believe. What about the hospital patient who was lying in the bed next to you and suffering from the exact...

    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...

    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...

    And I wish more religious people accepted that.

    I accept and respect all religions, and I actually think most atheists also do. I just can't stand it if a religious person tries to convince someone of God's existence if it's his/her personal decision not to believe in him.

    for God beyond feelings is that they are the hardest to refute within yourself.

    I do, and don't, believe in God.

    I have a mental dichotomy when it comes to religion. 1. I do not believe in god. I don't know what happens when we die and that's okay. If nothing comes after I die, then I'm not much going to care that I'm dead am I? If something DOES happen, then there is a very good chance...

    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...

    Wars are happening, torture, murder, rape, yet I'm expected to believe in someone that easily has the power to fix this. You say it's the devil's work, but isn't god supposed to be stronger than the devil? Couldn't he combat the evil and easily win? Why would he create the devil...

    I won't claim to know,

    but I also choose not to believe due to a lack of evidence or any reason to do so. When I put critical thought into the subject, it just becomes another question. When I consider morality when it comes to a god, I find that it would be flawed just like we are. What's sad to me...
