i'm atheist because I can litteraly spend hours pointing out the flaws in the bible and the way the church is run, while I am open to many ideas and theories, the concept of a creator god is ridiculous

It's not completely stupid to believe in something unproven. At the very least it isn't false or not true.

Good thing our scientists are still investigating this case like detectives on mysterious cases. Sometimes, not finding the key person doesn't mean that the key person doesn't exist or played a part especially in mysterious murder cases. In this case, was there a GOD who created the existence of life or it just happened.

I believe GOD does exist. Just looking through my eyes, I can figure I'm in GOD's life story as if GOD had a pair of eyes in first person view and conscious of a living person.



PS: (not important. side topic) How did we come to believe that our biological parents is who we believe they are? I'm sure none of us witnessed or remember being inside a mother's womb. The moment I was aware of myself, few years of age, I trusted that the folks taking care of me kindly were my parents. I don't doubt it but on a logical sense there isn't proof. Even if it was recorded through video it isn't the legitimate proof. The proof has to come from myself, knowing and witnessing myself being created.

i am athiest as religions is the idea of brainwashing people into believing something without any proof that it exists. I was told in a catholic school to fully believe in god without needing evidence that he exists. religion is just to control people, its used to dominate women alot in the past and an excuse to start wars and kill people.

sorry if i offended anyone religious but u cant turn a blind eye to what religion has done.

False.
Atheist just means, a lack of belief in any god. Agnostic just means does not know for sure.

You can be an Agnostic Atheist; someone who does not believe in any gods but does not know for sure.

Nonsense. There is no "atheist religion". It has no core tenets, churches or anything even resembling a religion unless you consider any advocacy group a "religion".

You have beliefs in a "god". Either your believe in one or you don't. There is no gray answer to that. You can of course be unsure or don't care but if you don't believe in one you're an atheist but just don't identify with that label.

But what does it matter, it's a label. Just don't run around being smug about saying something patently false.

I used to call myself an atheist, for the most part I guess I grew up in an atheist family. I was quite young when I started questioning religion in general and think alot about life and death.

It was like that up until the point where some weird stuff happened in my life. I can't explain it better than I started having very strong weird feelings of having walked this Earth more than once and that my human body contains some kind of soul and that our seen world is a learning ground for us. What that would be connected to I have no clue. There is a possibility for some kind of afterlife, but there might as well just be nothing. I don't blame anyone for looking at me funny for writing this.

As much for God and deities goes I will never believe in such existences. My tattoo guy once said something I thought to be very true. He said to me "yeah, I did read the Bible and the Koran, they are some of the most interesting fantasy books I've ever read."

FALSE

Atheist believe there is no god what-so-ever in any form. Every thing has a logical conclusion. You can't be Agnostic Atheist as much as kids wish that were true.

Personally, I believe you can't prove or disprove god (as in higher power) thus I am agnostic.

Calling yourself an Agnostic Atheist is like saying you're a Catholic Protestant christian. You either believe the pope can talk to god or you don't.

It's POMO BS.

Yes, yes I am. I haven't seen anything in my 18 years on this planet that would help me prove there is a god so, much to my family's dissapointment, I decided to go the atheist route. I have even been called a "bitch from my mom for my choice (especially since im brown and come from a sikh family) but I stand by my choice. I believe religious people are ignorant. They choose to believe in something that doesnt exist during their lives so they caan enter a place that promises eternal happiness or pain (which is the dumbest thing I have ever heard)

You seem oblivious to the meaning of the words.
A/Theism is a statement of belief or lack of belief in a Deity.
A/Gnostism is a statement of a basis or lack of basis of knowledge.
They are completely different statements.

You can be an Agnostic Black Hole-ist or an Agnostic Earth Core-ist. It has no inherent meaning by itself. It is just a statement of knowledge.

A Gnostic Atheist(So-called Strong Atheist) states that he/she KNOWS there is no god and does not believe in one.
An Agnostic Atheist(So-called weak atheist) states that he does not know there is or is no god but at present does not believe in one. This is what most "agnostics" fall under but some Agnostic Theist who believe in some higher power but is not sure also use the "Agnostic" label.

I'm actually both an Agnostic Atheist and Gnostic Atheist. I can't be sure a vague all encompassing faceless "god" exist or does not exist but I frankly don't believe in one until I see some evidence. But I sure as heck don't believe in Zeus or some of the versions of Yahweh. It just depends on the god.
