I grew up a baptist and I get what christians see or believe I understand it trust me, I just choose to believe it’s all bogus.
I believe every religion and belief system is corrupted and worshipped or awknowleged as how one want to believe it to be wether you Christian, Muslim, Catholic or any religion or theist or athiest believer or disbeliever. I believe religion was created to make people have a tool/tools to understand things and have answers. I think athiest exist because of there have been numerous false Gods in other religions in the past and there is some unrealistic things written in the Bible or Qur'an and many other "Holy" books. Truth is religion is misunderstood and people worship in ways they see fit more then the way it says so in Religious texts. In reality every popularized religious text just says to be a good person and not to be greedy of sinful and live happy and peaceful. But now religion has been adopted to be whatever they want or choose it to be. Atheism is almost Nihilism and believing everything came from nothing and nothing has true meaning or purpose. I dont like belief systems.
I’m by no means trying to push atheism on anyone just curious really in what makes people believe what they believe, I believe in science and facts.
in a word, insecurity. We are a painfully insecure species. Religious people tend to build their entire self esteem around their religion. You mess with it, and you are messing with their self-worth.
whats ur religion name?
So praying may work, or it may not. If it works then God is great, if not then the Lord moves in mysterious ways. In other words, praying works exactly as well as not praying.
I live in Oklahoma and when someone finds out you’re an atheist it’s like you’re their devil himself and everyone wants to argue about how their religion is right.

I agree with this a lot I mean it makes since, I feel like religion is a fall back, having a bad day? Blame it on something other then yourself, having a good day say it’s because “god” let you have One. I feel like I owe my happiness and troubles to myself, no one can make me happy or upset other then my own mind. No one can “bless” me with a house, money, car, I do that, I go to work and buy them myself. I don't know I feel like some people don’t accept that your own happiness comes from yourself.
I agree. I can't stand those Christians who believe that EVERYTHING that happens to them is God's will, even if they lose an eye.We are in charge of our own destiny. God has nothing to do with it. If God exists, why does he allow bad stuff to happened to his followers?
Please if you where to become a all powerful God you would become dis illsioned. You would no longer be a human or think or behave in a humanly way. You wouldn't care about money, fame, power, death, humans, celebrities or anything you care about at all. We humans live in a grand illusion and its how we live are entire lives. In reality we idolize money and celebties, sex and the small and unimportant things. If you where a God non of this would matter. People dying wouldn't matter. People being born wouldn't matter or be important, Money, Fame, power, success non of that would matter anymore. When Athiest use the well God doesn't take care of me or others and I earn everything myself and so does every body else earn everything they get argument is not a good argument. Maybe if there is a God maybe human things like life and death and poverty dont mean anything. Maybe the meaning for life is the beauty of nature and the universe... I don't know really its anybody's guess.
I wasn’t using it as an argument? 🤔 I was simply stating that I make my own happiness those were just the easiest situations to explain. Heck if I was a god I’d create a universe and every time I felt like starting over I’d just flood it. 😂 all the “innocents” would just be collateral damage.
See when stuff like that happens I just hope these dr’s actually payed attention in class and didn’t cheat 😂 heck donate blood, money, time. Praying is a scape goat to feel like you’re helping when you’re not.
Then what’s an atheist to do when we get attacked by Christians or any other religion just because we chose not to believe?
I find the best thing to do is explain your views as best as you can and tell them that you are not going to argue with them. That is the problem I have with organized religion, they are all so self rightous. Best to walk away and take the high road.
None of the facts add up, everything is contradicting, science proves everything every times.
So you trust more science than something that for example you can't see?
Alright I understand you better now 😁
Sorry I was just saying there are so many controversial things in the Bible, to me it’s like a giant story book and someone decided they wanted to make it a religion. Heck it’d be like me grabbing 50 shades of grey and saying well he said this but right now I want it to mean this and apply it to my life. 😂 I don't know my opinion I guess
Ahah that's ok lol
We don't choose to be atheist. We become an atheist when we find ourselves unable to believe in God because we see no evidence. Some people don't need evidence to believe things, feelings are enough. Feelings aren't enough for atheists. We don't care if we're the only atheist in a town of one million, we still have to be convinced by force of evidence. The evidence isn't there. To us it's all just old made-up stories. My position is that I know nothing about God but I know just as much as anyone else who has ever lived. In other words, there are no true prophets.
