Atheist
About Me:
I'm 28. I suppose I would consider myself your typical nonbeliever. I actually think, with my brain, using logic & practical reasoning. I would consider myself highly skeptical of anything unbelievable. I don't buy into faith healing, homeopathy, astrology, etc. I love listening to Tyson, Dawkins, Nye, Hitchens, & Krauss on youtube.

Sadly, I currently consider myself a "closet atheist". At least when it comes to my family (because they are southern baptist). I only "come out" to my close friends and new people that I meet.

Other topics: At my day job, I am a computer programmer. I very much enjoy mathematics. I love music and playing the guitar.

Why you left your religion.
For many reasons, all pretty standard. I started thinking for myself. I looked at scientific evidence. I didn't like the christian doctrine. I was tired of the hypocrisy.

If you are religious, ask yourself: "Why do I believe in god?" Whether or not you claim to have evidence for your faith, the correct answer is because someone taught you about god. You did not know what god was until someone told you. Either you were taught, or you invented your own version of god, deluded yourself, and…

Atheist vs. Anti-theist

Posted on April 23, 2013 at 11:05pm 5 Comments

I'm new around here. This is my first blog post in effort to spark some interesting discussions. Depending on the feedback, I may write more! Let me know what you think.

I am having a bit of a struggle understanding what my approach should be when I am having debates with theists. On the one hand, I feel that proving whether or not there is a god is an impossible task. This would make me an atheist. On the other, I would like to use reason, understanding, and tangible evidence to…
