Became concerned about my unbelief so I attended a fundamentalist church for "stronger medicine". When the brainwashing failed I finally decided that I could accept myself as an atheist.

God and religion

Some Christians will refer to atheists who have converted back to being believers but I will say that it does not matter because god and religion is simply a phase of human intellectual maturity and will eventually be a thing of the past. And I believe so.

Nature is opportunistic in its creative way such as where a species can somehow perceive a means of survival it will adapt itself to go there. I guess what helped to inspire this thought was my experience some time ago with bedbugs.. if there was a god why would he allow bedbugs to torture his innocent creatures? Well not only bedbugs but all the bugs that cause disease, suffering and death and yet not only that but the animals that feed off other animals like a lion ripping up a zebra while it… Continue

Spirit energy force?

'if you believe in God..yak..yak' So I replied that 'I cannot prove that I believe in God so I must be an atheist; and how about you.. can you prove that you believe in God.. if he does exist?' He could not find a loophole through that one so I teased him that he's probably always been an atheist even if he always considered himself a believer. I tossed the thing around a… Continue

"bout a year, now..

Posted on July 18, 2009 at 6:52pm 2 Comments

It must be about a year now since I decided that atheism may be the best fit for my existence.. and I do feel as though I am on more solid ground now than I had ever felt trying to feel secure about a belief in 'God'. I always felt it seemed kind of silly to 'worship something'.. anyway, that IS a primitive practice and it avails nothing. Salvation?.. Christian baloney.

I find people are naturally decent, compassionate, law-abiding, etc; its wired into our brains to be the way we are after… Continue
