    Society Forced That One God On Me.

    Society forced that one god on me. Father told me that it was tradition and my people. I realized that I have no people. I am and always will be alone. The wars going on, the people starving and sick, the people who die in natural disasters is the truth about life. So is...

    Updated.

    first there was the realization the good book didn't even ban slavery, then there was the essay "even if I did believe" by Tim marine, and then I saw the evilbible.com website...and Yeah, my loss of faith was fiery and violent. Then it was "letter to a Christian nation" by Samuel...

    I Stopped Believing In God Because It Makes No Logical Sense

    I was raised as a Christian but as I reached my teenage years and early twenties I began to notice certain things about the religion that were eventually to cause me to question it. These were: 1) The bizzare behaviour of some Christians - imaging they could talk in tongues...

    I never did believe in God.

    I remember the first time I ever heard about the concept. I was very young, sitting on the floor with a bunch of other kids, listening to some guy standing in front of the room, talking about God. I began to chuckle at the stories of an invisible man who could read my thoughts...

    Religion Is Evil

    I was in a church last year and read the 10 commandments . This god chap sounds so evil and it dawned on me that the commandments was made to control the masses. I hope he does not exist because I would not want to spend eternal life with such an awful person. So really it was a...

    Because I Started To Believe In Myself

    I was baptized Catholic, but my parents never really pushed the faith on me.  We never went to church, except for weddings & funerals, and I never completed any of the sacraments.  So I honestly never really had much of a belief in God most of my life until age 29.  I was...

    What You Mean "stopped?"

    I NEVER believed in "god." My parents were not religious, and never indoctrinated me to believe. I was sent to religious school so I would have an understanding of religion so I could make my own choice. It wasn't more than a few days into the first year when I realized what a...

    People Lie

    I stopped believing in god when I confronted my parents with my suspicions about Santa Claus, and they confirmed them. And then, they asked me to keep the truth to myself, so that my little sisters could "enjoy" Christmas longer. Basically, my parents asked me to lie, and showed...

    Just Why?

    Tell me, just why. This is for the people who don't believe in god. The one who created you, the one who gave you life is god. I don't understand those people who say 'Oh, I don't believe in god. Whenever I need him he's never there' you should probably know why. If you're going...

    Not Sure There Was A "when" . . .

    I remember believing in god, but never truly Believing.  I always had trouble with the concept of faith, of not asking questions.  The fact that my CCD teacher would often answer my questions by saying "you have to have faith" only solidified my inability to accept that there...

    Hey Folks,I am an atheist among other things. In a society where nobody believed in God that wouldn't really matter. But in our world atheism is almost a sin to some and is a sin to many so I make a big deal about it just to prove that they can't take it away from me :)When I was...
