September 2007

If you would like me to stop using the “rude” method, I will gladly respect your wishes and be more polite. Firstly, I want to explain that Mormon morality is slightly different than that of Catholicism’s or Lutheranism’s, but that does not make it unChristian. I mean, come on. If someone was threatening harm upon […]

There was a study that surveyed atheists and it found that atheists fear God so much that even hearing the word “God” distresses them, squeeze their eyes shut when they remove bills from their pocket out of fear that they might see the phrase “In God we Trust,” go out of their way when driving […]

What are you doing calling mormons Christians? Mormons are a cult that believes in many pagan gods and denies Jesus. you are an Unending Roll of Crap. I’ve got another reader who would disagree with you.

If you admit a deity is possible, why not call yourself an agnostic or just say you don’t know how the universe occurred? Are you against the concept of God, or against the concept of a Creator? Are there some facets of evolution that make you believe a creator could not have created all the […]

Comment: Hi, I love your site. I’ve read several accounts here that describe people’s “conversion”, for lack of a better word, to atheism, but I’ve not seen many that share my experiences, so I just wanted to share my story. I was raised atheist. Usually when I say this people don’t believe me; they say […]

I read that a certain person said that we atheists are taking the easy way out by not believing. I’d like to say to him that there have been many times when I wish I could believe. To get along better with my family, to feel a sense of community in church, to have a […]

I’ve been reading the stuff on your site with interest. Unfortunately there is more there than I have had time to read. So my next comment may have been already made by someone whose mail I have not yet read… A number of respondants have expressed the belief that religious believers are unintelligent or that […]

I have never had to believe in anything as I am all-seeing and all-knowing (and omnipotent when I can be bothered).Regards God Makes sense. But just to confirm that what you say is true, can you tell me what seven-digit number I’m thinking of as I type this?

Thanks for the reply. Its nice to have a thirdparty view on such matters. It’s two in the morning so my message may be nonsensical but here it is… Undeniably, yes, that was an argument and that explains much of the reaction on both sides. My response was intended to show her up to a […]

I would just like to say that after a very short time your site has become a strong favourite of mine. I find it incredibly informative, inspiring, entertaining, and even addictive at times. I agree completely with your point of view, and often wonder why such a logical perspective isn’t far more common. Even with […]
