HI I came across your website on ‘stumbleupon’ and found it fascinating. I think i have always been an atheist as neither of my parents are particularly religious. My mum was brought up a Catholic and came to the conclusion that it really didn’t make any sense to her and threatening children from a very […]

I think my most favorite thing about theists is that it seems that many of them like to threaten either A) Physical harm to you for being an atheist, thereby going against the teachings of the Bible as far as violence is concerned. B) They claim that you make assumptions about them as theists, but […]

I want to get things in order: papers, procedures, check out the gadgets, etc. before I can get down to the meat, which reading your thoughts is a big time consuming endeavor, which I don’t dread! I’m an atheist, but when that gets out to the religious crowd, it hinders my attempt to talk reality. […]

Greetings, I am an atheist, I’ve been an atheist for eight years or so, I’m 15. I enjoy reading your blog, and I’d like to say somethings I’ve found. After reading in the ‘personal attack’ section, of your comments, I noticed that you reading the bible cover to cover was what set you to atheism, […]

I’m eighteen and have been an atheist for nearly my entire life, I simply never believed in God. I wasn’t raised into a religious home. Still, I am one of the most moral people I know. Many of my friends who consider themselves religious, feel that all they need is to believe in God, and […]

I love stumble upon. I just pressed the button and bam! a page that really speaks to me. I have been a professed atheist for 3 years now. It’s been different to say the least. I feel like people look down on me or pity me. The irony of it all is, I pity them. […]

As I get older and more intelligent about the world around me, the more appalled with religion and the more I am awed by the natural world. I recently finished a book by Christopher Hitchens, God is Not Great, and I like how he describes himself as a protestant atheist (I think protestant, my brain […]

I stumbled upon your site (literally, I got here from stumbleupon.com) and I have to say you handle the hate mail with eloquence and dignity. I always find it kind of sad that the devout followers of Jesus, probably (whether he existed or not) the greatest moralist ever, find it hard pressed themselves to follow […]

Well, not really (but thanks for trying). It is difficult for me to see things “from a religious point of view”. If there is some vital part of my thought process that occurs in another world “outside of determinism”, didn’t God also design that part of my mind and thus be reponsible for its conclusions, […]
