I, for one, am atheist because I know that if I were Christian, and I ended up in heven, I would feel guilty that a good many people in hell were there for eternity because they grew up with one set of "heretical" beleifs and "were never taught better".
I beleive that hell is a punishment that people are told they will face if they are not good to their fellow man. This would be a good thing, however, if, say, a Native American, who did not beleive Christ was the son of God and did only good during his life, goes to hell, that defeats the concept.
Nobody has the right to say one child is born with "original sin" and the way to cleanse him is to pay the church.
I have many reasons to be atheist (and science is one of them). It is always better to judge the individual than to put everybody into about 25 groups and dictate their right to live on this planet based on that.
Just as a person with belief appears to have no visible means of support. Belief is supported by faith in historical evidence in the Biblical testaments, Josephus, Philo, and other noted historians.
2) Someone who thinks they're better than those who are religious.
Good Atheist: That's cool, I'm athiest.
2) Religious person: I'm Christian.
Bad Athiest: OMGZ!!! All Christians are such hypocrites!! they discriminate and generalize and think they're better than everyone else! I hate all the stupid Christians!
Religious person: Hey, dumbass, do you realize you just did the exact thing you just accused Christians of doing? You're the fucking hypocrite here, not us.
Bad Atheist: Uh... er... um... stop being smarter than me!
a moral person who holds logic and truth as their guides.
Some atheists are bugged by religious people.
Other atheists are cool with the fact that other people have different beliefs.
Many people criticize atheists for celebrating Christmas, which I think is complete and utter bullshit. Christmas, although a religious holiday, has other meanings behind it. It's a time to spend with loved ones as well. So atheists have that right to celebrate Christmas.
Alison: No, I'm an atheist.
Heather: Why are you celebrating Christmas? You're an atheist...
Alison: Get off my ass, Heather.
