Alison commented on Carol Foley's blog post '... But you're not like those other atheists!'
"Hitchens made me proud to be an Atheist. It saddens me that he is gone but his immortally lies in his work. He left books and videos that I can show my children one day so they grow up free thinkers."

Alison commented on Seth Hunter peterson's blog post 'My sister is making me go to church, help please?'
"Be honest with your sister. I know its hard when the people you love don't accept your views but I am sure she will respect your views. Tell her you don't like going to Church.  BTW: When I walk through the religious section…"

Alison commented on Michael Merritt's blog post 'Response to: Which is Worse? Islam v. Christianity'
"Modern Islam seems worse to me than modern Christianity since I fear the ignorance of Islamic fundamentalist and Sharia Law more than I fear the ignorance of fundamentalist Christians."

Growing up...

Intellectually I don't believe a God could exist. Scientifically and Mathematically its just not possible for every human to have the undivided attention of one particular God. Maybe this will be proved wrong one day, but for now it makes sense. Shamefully however, I have sometimes chose to believe in God even though intellectually I could not justify the existence of such.I thought it was due to the fact that I have a fatalistic personality and I thought that if I believed in my heart that…See More

Atheist
About Me:
I lived under Apartheid and I lived blissfully ignorant. I lived under Catholicism and I lived blissfully ignorant. I see these two things as the same in that they promote ignorance, the decline of free thinking and censorship.

There exist today, people who honestly believe that we were better off under Apartheid and that freedom should be granted to white people only because the rest of us are too stupid or corrupt to know how to best use it. This reminds me so much of religion which preaches that people can't think for themselves and they need religion to tell them wrong from right.

Most religious brands claim that they are the only group of people who know "the truth" and every other religion is false. I refuse to live blissfully under ignorance any more.

Why are you here?
Tired of fundamentalists who come to our Facebook pages. I want a forum where atheism can be expressed without being attacked. Where people don't just assume that because you see lies in their "absolute truth", you are uneducated. I don't go onto religious forums and attack their beliefs? I grow tired of this never ending battle. NO wonder Hitchens smoked and drank so much. Talking to the religious is a battle you cannot win.
The religion you left
Christian
