By Eddie Mileswww.theeverydayskeptic.com With all the talk about atheists being the most distrusted segment of society and with the fact that many of us can’t even come out of the proverbial closet to our own friends and family, it’s easy to forget what we have going for us. In fact, what a lot of non-believers don’t realize is that we really have it made right now. We can make some claims that theists just can’t make… Well, they make the claims…See More

"Looks like you have a free editor. I agree about the quotation marks. Your observations are more forceful without them. You make a good point if Christian does indeed mean Christ-like, I have always assumed that it refers to those who are the…"
By Eddie Mileswww.theeverydayskeptic.comOne thing I like to bring up from the start in my debates with those who call themselves "Christians" is the fact that they may not really even be "Christians".

I'm a musician and a writer. I'm a strong anti-theist who thinks that the religions are not only incorrect but detrimental to society in general. I just started a blog at www.theeverydayskeptic.com and I'm currently looking for "everyday skeptics" to contribute to it. Information on submissions can be found at the blog site. You can often find me in my favorite Paltalk chat room: Religion and Spirituality-->Atheism-->Atheist versus Christian Debate. My Paltalk nickname is 4everlearning.
Why are you here?
I'm here to meet fellow atheists/agnostics who share my vision of a future without dogmatic beliefs to keep us in bondage.
Hey, I was just re-reading a some of what I posted in the discussion on military recruiting. I realized some of it could have been interpreted as a little harsh; its tough to convey tone and emotion in plain text. Just wanted to let you know I appreciate you sharing your views. I don't agree with you completely, but can see your angle. So I just wanted to say thanks for chiming-in on the discussion.
