I Don't Believe In God

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,357 People

    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...

    I honestly don't think I do.

    Faith is absurd. I wish I wasn't indoctrinated

    with the Catholic faith. What a load of crap. My efforts to adhere to the Church was a huge waste of my youth. Damn it, Mom and Dad! Why couldn't you have raised me to come to my own conclusions?

    I don't believe in God,

    but I hate pushy atheists who feel superior and criticize others for having a religion. My two sisters are atheists, and I'm pretty sure my parents are too, or at least don't care about it. But all of my mom's sisters are super Christian, and I would never put them down for that...

    My Heart Is Three Sizes Too Small.

    I do sometimes feel like The Grinch when I criticize and/or debunk religion.  It can be very hard because so many people whom I respect and love are strong believers.  They see honest questioning and refusal to accept poor answers as an attempt to steal the rosy picture...

    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 God

      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...

    I Don't Believe In God. I Believe In Goddess. Kinda.

    I never believed in god in the first place, thank goodness. I remember picking apart the faulty logic when I was no older than six or seven - "But Mommy, if god made everything, who made god?". I remember declaring as far back as second grade that no, I do not believe...

    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...

    "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...

    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...

    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...

    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 know it is so much more than simply not having a belief in any god, but that's the distinction we must ride until the day people let go of the stigmas and stereotypes associated with being atheist. Even that label is no good, as it only describes what we are not, not who we...
