For me its always been the opposite, Christianity makes absolutely no sense to me.

What about people who never believed in the first place? I'm curious. Everyone seems to forget us lot.

Anyway, welcome Wiggy.

Welcome Wiggy! I look forward to discussing some of the assertions you've made here.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

If the God of the bible existed as described, I would certainly not worship it. I would call it an evil tyrant.
Feel free to send me a private message.
Please visit my website here! It's got lots of information about atheism/theism and support for new atheists.

Welcome to a world that does not revolve around what you already believe. Hope the shock doesn't cause you to wig out.

I would have thought if you've already debated many atheists you would already have a sense of how they think. Most of us aren't at all certain that there is no god. For most of us it is just a silly, fanciful notion which isn't to be taken seriously. There is no need to argue against god belief. You're welcome to it.

I may have to agree with you here. Of course plenty of fools also say there is a god. It is a foolish notion after all, and so attracts the foolish.

Again I have to agree with you. So long as you start off certain that you have all the answers there is very little chance of you learning anything new .. including a reason to forgo beliefs regarding gods.

Since we are not born christian, you must have been a wicked unbeliever before you found the hiding god. How are you dealing with the depraved mind you received?

Wow, that's a nice insinuation.

But that's a discussion for a different thread, not for the introduction forum. I think you will find that atheism isn't like religion with scripts to follow. It's rather the total absence of a script.

When I was young, there was a god with infinite power protecting me. Is there anyone else who felt that way? And was sure about it? but the first time I fell in love, I was thrown down - or maybe I broke free - and I bade farewell to God and became human. Now I don't have God's protection, and I walk on the ground without wings, but I don't regret this hardship. I want to live as a person. -Arina Tanemura

Welcome OP.

Protip - It's impossible to hate something that doesn't exist. Just FYI Smile

Wow, so much wrong in one short intro. It's like a casserole of wrongitude.

Welcome aboard, anyway. I hope you're truly here to learn, as you imply, but it does look as though your mind is already made up concerning the way atheists think. Hint: we're just like regular people, but without the imaginary friend part.

No it doesn't.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'
