Atheist’s weapons

this is great. thanks for creating it and i just might have to use some of the witty comebacks against those who disrespect my atheism. yeah so great. Thanks! Just remember — snappy comebacks are useful only against people you are driving away, as opposed to those that you are trying to draw closer. I […]

“Don’t let them get to you”

A lot of Christians are acting very hostile. Even when the Bible says love your enemies. I’m a Christian, but i also believe in an open mind. Thanks for the not abusing my e-mail address. Don’t let them get to you. If they do get to you, maybe thinking how they feel (or how they […]

An atheist hypocrite?

from what i’ve read on here, you really are helpful. i stumbled into this site while searching for the correct definition of an atheist. i think i might be a “weak” atheist? to start off, i was raised in the church (my father was a deacon). like many young children who’ve been brought up in […]

Religion and war

After reading some of the comments from so called god believers on your site i was shocked to see how hate filled some religious people are but then again thinking about it religion is what most wars have been over. The earth would be a much more peaceful and happier place without religion. P.S great […]

What would Jesus’ bumper sticker say?

“Thanks, but I was born ok the first time.” Bumper sticker seen on a truck in New Mexico yesterday. Another good response to use when hassled by those wacky Fundies. Personally, I find any form of “I’m superior because I have my religion and you don’t” completely obnoxious. Isn’t “pride” supposed to be one of […]

Thanks for the response. I know you have a lot of incoming posts that require attention and I wondered if you actually got to them all. Apparently, you do! Good timing, too. Christmas season is upon us (although the most stressful parts are over.) For many years, I didn’t give much thought to the “Merry […]

I wanted to make a quick point after reading some other posts. I am an atheist, but I know several intelligent and tolerant theists. The hate-mail posters are clearly not acting in a “Christian” way, but as you’ve noted, that doesn’t make Christians or other theists bad or even hypocrites. You have intelligent thoughtful posts […]

Hi, just wanted to drop you a line saying what a breath of fresh air i found your site/blog I find the way you’re willing to engage in debate with both ‘in-your-face’ atheists (as you call them) and theists heart-warming and deffinatly a large improvement over the GOD-SUCKS type websites which, while i agree with […]

I have been perusing your blog for about an hour now, and have read a few dozen of the hate mail posts. I am 20 years old and was raised a strong Christian my entire life. More than anything else, it seems like the sharing of God’s love was more important than anything else in […]
