Hey, it’s me again, and this time with some good news. I finaly “came out”, so to speak, and told my parents that I’m an atheist. They took it about as expected. My Dad seemed to be fairly indifferent (I’m pretty sure that he is an agnostic anyway) but my Mom took it kind of […]

I’m just going to say this, regarding two messages I read in your hate mail section: It saddens me to no end that children are being brainwashed by parents these days and oppressed because of thoughts and questions they have. I hate how they cannot think for themselves in a society with a growing need […]

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 […]

Thank you very much for you help. I have friends who are no longer on speaking terms with me anymore as a result of my new worldview. I think this is hypocritical of the Christian community to exile their “brothers”, but, I guess I would prefer that to the inane question games they seem to […]

Hello, I am 14 and an atheist. I have been an atheist now for about two years and I feel happy about being different and I enjoy being what I want to be. I enjoy being untethered by religion in my life. I’ve always thought about religion has a little far fetched. I grew up […]

I dont believe in a religion, but i do not refer to myself as an atheist. when someone asks me what religion i follow, i tell them i dont follow any religion. when they say, “so your atheist?” I tell them no. I feel that by being an “atheist” you automatically become anti-religious and are […]

Can’t dispute one point you’ve made. I “think” the reason I always throw the “but you can decide for yourself later” at them is so if they ever take a spouse that’s a christian it helps them to know that I know, love, and tolerate people that believe…as if we have a choice ;) I […]

I have just become an atheist. I eventually realized all the gaps in Christianity, and faith in general. I feel very free now as a result of not living in fear of being punished for “thought crimes” such as not buying into things which have no logical proof. A theologist professor said “Absence of evidence […]

Even though I am slightly intoxicated, I rather enjoyed stumbling onto your site and then to your blog. I think I am an incredibly forgiving athiest and do not really tell the rest of the population how I feel. I must say thanks for giving me more thoughts on my likings of being a godless […]

Hey there, I love your site!!! I hope you’re still maintaining it. It cracked me up to no end when I found it one day and I’ve showed as many people as I can. Most folks laugh (probably because I’m discerning about who I show it to…). Here’s an idea I had as I was […]
