Why are you here?
The idea of religion is meaningless to me, I feel like others could experience so much more through cosmic understanding and scientific knowledge rather than having the feeling that someones looking over your shoulder and reading your thoughts constantly all your life. The idea of an omnipotent, omnibenevolent god disgusts me. I also enjoy being around others that feel the same way I do, i dont get to talk about this much around where i live because most everyone here is "that type" of christian. I learned how to argue effectively with them and i enjoy the debates, especially when i whip out my knowledge of the bible and they find that when it came to most people, i knew more about their tenants than they did. I guess a small part of me guiltily enjoys spreading doubt.

Even if you ask people in general, People seem to be more readily able to describe torture and punishment more clearly than eternal bliss.



Common hell descriptions:fire, agony, violence, torture, pain, lust, greed, evil, fire, beyond the… Continue

Atheist Vs. Rationalist?

Posted on September 13, 2011 at 10:12am 15 Comments

Hey everyone, this is my first post and I thought this would be a good topic to bring up.

 

So, I actually can't stand the word/label of atheist meaning "without god". I mostly don't like it because it describes a group of people as something that "most" people are not. I dont think that anyone should be described in such a way. What if we started calling black people say, non-whites. or If the majority group of people were actually atheist and we started calling people of…
