Atheism comes with it a host of philosophical questions that are not usually adressed by religions, as I'm sure you're beginning to explore. i hope that although you may have found religion to be meaningless that you don't find life without it to be so. That is an assumption made all to often by theists about atheists. I find meaning everywhere. I proceed from the assumption that although we were not made for any reason, we're here, against all odds, and that's pretty damn special and precious. You chose a career that requires you to save lives. That's pretty damn special, too.

Thank you for the welcome. I have found life to have more meaning now that it is not clouded with superstition and useless ritual. Just as a side note that I like to bring up to theists who try to use miracles as proof of existence. As a Paramedic I have raised many people from the dead and there wasn't anything miraculous about it.

I'm sure those people would disagree. Good work bud.
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!

RE: New atheist



They will never admit that their god is guilty of inaction, which is very immoral/unethical.
It's like seeing a child drowning in a swimming pool and leaving him/her to drown despite having the power to go in and save him/her. The world would hate your guts, and yet god being all knowing and powerful, refuses to aid those who are dying of cancer, children dying of starvation, children being molested and women being rapped and he gets a free pass. Doesn't make any sense does it?
Also god supposedly designed and created everything, he designed it so that such horrific things happen. He's all knowing, he knew the outcome. All this makes him a very sadistic, evil tyrant. Careless, heartless and without any sense of morality. Yet theists accuse atheists for being immoral. What the fuck?!
This is one of many reasons why religion is such a joke.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence - Carl Sagan

Mankind's intelligence walks hand in hand with it's stupidity.

Being an atheist says nothing about your overall intelligence, it just means you don't believe in god. Atheists can be as bright as any scientist and as stupid as any creationist.

You never really know just how stupid someone is, until you've argued with them.
