Atheism and music

I was chatting to a guy yesterday and religion came up in conversation. The usual "so what religion are you?" question was asked by him and I said I was not religious. He was not sure what I meant by 'not religious' so I told him that I was an atheist and did not believe that there was a god and that all religions are made by man.

This is when it got interesting, he said - "Oh, so you listen to heavy metal and stuff..."??? HUH??

Often when the old testament is brought up people say that it 'no longer applies' and that the new testament takes precedence. The site I am referring to gave some great examples to use against this argument.

Do any of you perhaps have the link to the site? it may…

I have been an atheist for about a year now and it has taken until till this week to truly understand what a huge false comfort believing in a God provides.


I of course thought it through back then and came to the realisation that we are 'alone' in this world - alone in terms of no supernatural being to look out for us. It took till yesterday, however, to really appreciate what a huge comfort it is that you're giving up in coming to that conclusion.
