It seems to me that nearly all the counter arguments presented in the “Arguments against Atheist” page take the form of a personal attack on the person who is presenting their belief against Atheism. The comments seem overly aggressive and impatient and all give the impression of not wanting to engage in discussion. Is there […]

The idea of Atheism being anything more than the disbelieve in god(s) is something which is stopping both Theists accepting it and Atheists from being condescending. Whenever I have met criticism about my Atheism it has always been made in the way of sweeping generalisations. People seem to assume that because I am Atheist I […]

As a declared atheist for the past 30 years, I know the difficulties of conversing with Unwashed, and must commend you on the skill with which you assay the task. I myself have found it an unrewarding endeavor and have since given it up. It is futile to debate with people who are under the […]

Hi, I’m an Atheist and I appreciate your site, but I wanted to comment: 1. Have no gods. Well, of course, we are atheists. 2. Don’t worship stuff. See above. 3. Be polite. Politeness should be contingent. Otherwise it just feeds unwarranted aggressive behavior. 4. Take a day off once in a while. Sorry, but […]

yeah as an guy who feels that god likely doesn’t exist i got to say some of your faq responses are shallow and not that true. for example the correct response to you have faith would not be to insult the kindhearted and mislead theist but rather to explain the difference between faith and an […]

I find the idea very amusing but you take it a little far and become very offensive. anyways it was funny until i read the rest. then you just get ugly “It’s not nice to argue or tease. Certainly religious people wouldn’t speak badly of you just because of your beliefs, so you shouldn’t speak […]

I was molested when I was little and have had a very hard time dealing with it. It was only through the grace of Christ and the love of the church that I have been able to build myself up again and restored my self esteem. You would have me throw that all away for […]

This is so like shooting fish in a barrel! “Don’t worship stuff.” How about money or my wife? “Be polite.” Atheists don’t have to be polite. They can be total asses if they want to because they make their own decisions. “Take a day off once in a while.” Atheists can’t be workaholics? “Be nice […]

I should have made it a bit clearer. 1) Atheist; do not need to demonstrate to religious people that they are moral. Morality is cultural and arguably genetic rather than religious. Therefore my comment; neither require nor subscribe too, refers to the list in its entirety. Effectively please don’t replace a set of rules for […]

Why do you persist in trying to make atheism into a creed? The ten commandments of atheism is a sad attempt to create a doctrine that most thinking people neither require nor subscribe to. You are only offering the deist fuel to further their cause I’m not trying to make atheism into a creed. The […]
