Morality, Hell, and rambling

I received this message via e-mail: God uses Hell in the same way. If it was not for Hell, then there would be no punishment for many sins and people would try to get away with everything. Can you tell me why an atheist would be moral, other than accidentally or just feeling like it, […]

Lack of God doesn’t make atheists

From the IAmAnAtheist.com feedback form: 1. the concept of atheism is a religious concept in itself. 2. atheism and morals. You bring moral as something outside of yourself. Moral is related to the type of animal you are. You happen to be a human being, so you have the human being morals. A lion should […]

Really an atheist?

From a comment on this post: ideclare writes: “Atheism is, by definition, the non-belief in a deity.” Incorrect. Atheism is a denial (active stand) that there is a god (e.g. “there ain’t no such critter”). It isn’t a passive stand. ideclare writes: “I believe that if a deity exists, it might be possible to prove […]

Atheism fails again

From the IAmAnAtheist.com feedback form. So the meaning of your life is to be created by you for yourself? There are so many things atheism fails to explain… People have to give their own life meaning. What more is there to explain? I think it’s people who assume “there has to be something more” who […]

Evil atheists

From the IAmAnAtheist.com feedback form: Hey wait a minute! You are kicking me out of the atheist club????? I’m an *evil* atheist, I don’t want to be good, and as there are no imaginary gawds that will set me on fire after I die, I don’t have to be. To me, an evil person is […]

Atheism with a heart

From the IAmAnAtheist.com feedback form: Thanks, I have always wanted to be excomulgated from Catholicism, which i’m baptised thanks a lot But i can’t go along atheism, is so rational that sucks, is the brain against the heart, is the other extreme of religion, and, in my opinion, a rational religion as well. Extremes don’t […]

Am I against religion?

From the IAmAnAtheist.com comment form: Hi you say you are atheist does that mean you are against religions in general? Atheism is the lack of belief in a deity and nothing more. One can think religion is awful, think religion is beneficial, think religion is a mixed bag, or have no opinion on religion at […]
