A person who believes that out of nothing, nothing created something, that something expanded and cooled to form the universe. Some very small things on one part of the universe came together by complete chance and those things just happened to evolve into larger lifeforms, succeeding in avoiding everything that could have wiped them out, and these larger life-forms happened to evolve into sentient beings with no outside help...right.............
Yes, i am an atheist. I believe that it was complete chance that formed the universe and all the life forms that currently inhabit it, no matter how unlikely that is, so I am curretly desperately searching for ways to prove that the universe is random, but not succeeding.

They don’t exist in foxholes. To the contrary, it is not someone who doesn’t practice any religion, but it’s a stupid fool who refuses to recognize the existance of the spiritual including a diety. They only believe in what they can see through science and disrgard any philisophical, theological or prophetical evidence of a supreme being. The irony is that it takes more faith to be an atheist than to believe in a diety because the atheist must always explain things not commonly understood like the origin of the universe (even the proposed Big Bang theory eventually points to a supreme being), scientific laws, prophecy and how only females in all species can reproduce their own kind, etc. Because atheists deny the existance of a diety due to a lack of scientific evidence, they must also deny things that are independent of scientific evidence like mathematics, psychology, emotions, miracles, dreams, demonic possession, the existance of good and evil, etc. Since an atheist claims to not belive in anything that cant be scientifically proven, especially God, the word “atheist” itself is a farce because they DO have a belief system; a belief that must assume everything in this universe is a coincidence and there are no abolutes.

Some atheists may either be aggressively active (intollerant of any belief and attacking persons of faith) or passive (supporting others who have faith), depending on the person. Michael Nudow of California was an example in the news a few years ago in the media by his strong activism of removing “In God We Trust” from our money and no private moment of silence or prayer in schools.

Atheists usually support their arguments with questions like “Where is the scientific evidence of a supreme being?” or “How can a God exist with all the horror occuring in the world?” or “how could a loving God send unbelievers to hell?” These questions are asked by atheists due to their lack of understanding of who God is and the root cause of the world’s problems (sin that was not the will of God but the free will of man). An atheist needs to understand that: 1. You cannot prove the spiritual with science. You cant scientifically prove people have been possessed by demons, but it has happened. You cant prove angels or miracles exist, but they do. You cant scientifically prove dreams exists but we know they do. You also cant prove that good and evil exists but we know it does. So, there are numerous things that are evident of a creator but don’t necessarily prove it. 2. The world’s troubles are a result of sin that entered the world, not by the Jedeo-Christian God, but by man’s free will given by God. Man chose to rebel against God and go his own way at the dawn of human civilization that caused the world to plummet into darkness and strife. 3. God does NOT send people to hell—people send themselves by rejecting the attonement of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, for their sins that separate them from God’s holiness. God did not create hell for people, but only for Satan and his angels following a war in heaven against God. In God’s holiness, he cannot allow sin in his perfect heaven, and there is no other place to send the sinners at judgement day but hell itself.

It’s actually very difficult to be an atheist because they are always having to explain the most difficult of things. The Bible refers to the atheist when it says, “The fool has said in his heart that there is no God.” Atheists are also without excuse because the Bible says, “God’s invisible qualities have been clearly revealed to everyone, so that no man is without excuse.” To put it simply, there is no excuse for being an atheist and not accepting the existance of a creator. At judgement day all atheists will become believers.
To be an atheist means you must consider all belief systems as futile and irrationally deny the existance of anything unseen. After all, there is no scientific proof according to them. How stupid, because much of the world and the universe we live in is unseen.

A Fool. An Immoral and corrupt individual.
Read Psalm 14 and Psalm 53.

Those Psalms say that those(atheists)who deny a creator are Fools.

A small group of some who are some of the most hypocritical people around, which is rather ironic considering how many times per day they call religious people hypocrites.
They're also incredibly arrogant, believing they're right and everyone else is wrong, which is also incredibly ironic, considering this is the exact same thing they say about religious peoples.

The group consists mostly of whiny teenagers, such as most of the kids on this site, who really have no idea what the facts are, but believe they're cool and "hardcore" for turning away from the religious beliefs of the majority. These are the ones who constantly say they believe in "science over religion" despite constantly flunking their biology exams.

They're infamous for having no original arguments, always just using whatever their god, Richard Dawkins, says, without having any idea what it means.

Their favorite hobby is bringing up the crusade as an example for why religion is bad, making themselves look like the ignorant morons they are (they've never actually read any actually factual accounts of history, in which they'd learn that the majority of the crusaders couldn't even read the Bible and mainly did what they did for wealth, not their incredibly distorted image of God).

Atheists love to bunch all religions in the world into one little ball called "religion" that they blame for all the problems in the world.
Talk about throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

They also like to say that Christianity is incompatible with science and that science disproves Christianity.
They also say that religion holds back the advancement of science.
Let's just ignore the fact that Newton (who said all his inspiration for his discoveries came from the Bible and God), Galileo, Kepler, and Bacon were all Christians. Why, even Benjamin Franklin was a deists (though hardly religious).
Only a moron would say that our advancement in science has come about by atheism.

Basically, while there are some nice and intelligent atheists, the majority are unintelligent, Dawkins-worshipping, rebellious, whiny children who lack the ability to comprehend half the things they quote as 'fact'.

The children who claim to be 'atheists' on this site will vote 'no' on this entry, because they are either insecure in their pitiful intellects or arrogant in their defiance of concepts they don't even understand.

1. A Theist, a person with belief in a God, from the Greek theos, belief. Often has dreams of grandeur due to belief that they're right.
2. Atheist, a person without belief in a God, from the Greek A, without, and theos, belief. Often has dreams of grandeur due to the belief that they're right.

A person who puts their life confidence in something visible. This person gets the feelings of love, harmony, unity, acceptance, courage, strength, patience, joy and all the other things that God brings from something worldly. They either believe in themselves while thinking that Christians do not (wrong) or believe in someone/thing else (ie. girlfriend, drugs, technology, scientist) to bring them hope and joy. The problem with this is personal to the atheist as it is a system of faith that will eventually fail. What happens if the person you believe in dies, or gets ill? What happens if you run out of cocaine or alcohol to feel social? They do not worship these things, but the atheist relies upon them just as the spiritualist relies on God.
Me: Explain how the world came into existence
Atheist: Science
Me: Yes I believe in that as well, but its not all an accident
Atheist: WHA?? you believe in science?
(shit, there goes 20 of my arguments)
