    I Believe In Nothing Religious.

    I have absolutely no belief in God and I can't even consider such nonsense. I don't know if anyone else feels the same way, but I've only met one or two people in my life that did and I was married to both. Am I so unusual to have no faith? Is the human brain so wired for it...

    Why Should There Be Religion?

    Why should there be religions? Yes it's something for people to believe in and to turn to but what good does religion actually give us? I know everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, I have nothing against it but I have no religion. Religion has caused wars, more deaths than a...

    But That Doesn't Make Me An Atheist,,,

    My boyfriend is a hardcore atheist.  To him, there is nothing in this world that cannot be explained with science.  Anything he cannot explain with science, he believes is still explainable using scientific terms - we just don't know what those terms are.   The...

    I was never bought up

    as religious. I first became aware of it when I went to school. You see, back in the 1970s some schools in the UK were still populated by the 'old school' Teachers bought up in the halcyon days of the 1950s, where Sunday School and church were a focal point of what is was to be...

    I was never raised as a religious person.

    My parents and I never went to church it's because my mom didn't like how they had you do all these things go to events give them money(when there this giant church with gold leaf everywhere) and it made sense. I've been in an actual church service I think 4 times so far in my...
