    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...

    I Was Raised As An Atheist

    Both of my parents were atheists, so I grew up without feeling the need for a higher power in my life... and with the belief that man created God rather than God creating man.  As my intellectual faculties began to develop, I began questioning my own beliefs, as I believe...

    I remember sitting in church with my parents

    when I was 14 and thinking I just don't believe any of this anymore. Religion seemed a failed explanation of the world even compared to junior high science. I really had no choice but to finish the confirmation program in my Lutheran church when I was 15. I kept my mouth shut...

    You do, or you don't.

    I happen to not even though my mother is catholic, and I went to Sunday school I think it is a croc. My mother told me when she went to the Catholic Church to get me christened she was told to leave, because my father was Church of England. I'm not sure if it was that or the...

    can I ask if your opinions of God come from

    religious experience, or religious followers? what if I told you the idea most people have of God is wrong.

    My entire family is Christian except

    for me, and honestly, they don't even stop to think about the things they say. Me and my mom were talking about the mudslide in DC. In the midst of our conversation she said, "Yep, God is coming and people do y even know it. Look at all these disasters around the world, he'll be...

    It Seems Ridiculous To Do So

    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...

    I do not believe in a man made created "God"

    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 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...

    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...

    I'm certain God doesn't exist.

    Why? When you die, your brain shuts down. That's it. Besides, if God existed, something would've had to create him, and something would've had to create the creator. Unfortunately, I cannot prove he doesn't exist. But evolution has been proven many times over. So why do people...
