What made you become an atheist?

What made you become an atheist?
For me, atheism sits better with me than Christianity ever did. I was constantly trying to fit Christianity into a mold of logic which did not work, and i realized that and gave up. Big Grin

Your turn.

RE: What made you become an atheist?
I was born as one. Then I was forced into religious propaganda at a young age by my mother. I began to question that religion when I was a teenager and went to more mystical/pagan thinking. Then when 9/11 happened I held my new born son in my arms and thought to myself "Quit lying to yourself, there is no God."

RE: What made you become an atheist?
Yeah, I'm in the same boat as these two. If I ever "became" an atheist it was before I can remember it.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

So you never believed in anything religious or supernatural?

Several reasons, though I'd have to say starting out as a theology major in college was the final nail in the coffin.

I read the bible.
"I get angry when believers say that the entire unimaginable hugeness of the universe was made entirely for the human race, and atheists by contrast say that humanity is this infinitesmal eyeblink in the vastness of time and space, and then religious believers accuse atheists of being arrogant."

I became an atheist because I view religion and worship as something ridiculous. While I believe omnipotent beings may exist (who knows what's out there?), I am not going to call them gods and I'm certainly not going to worship them. The very thought alone makes me sick Sad

What he said.

Born atheist saw no reason to change.



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.
