Please explain how you choosing to not believe in the pink unicorns is any different than be not believing in your God?

They have the same amount of supporting evidence, which is to say zero. If it's because people do not worship pink unicorns, lets change it up. How about Zeus, do you believe in zeus? Would you consider yourself atheist when dealing specifically with the Greek gods? If the answer is yes, would it be fair to claim that you really do believe in the Greek gods and that anybody who does not believe in the Greek gods is actually a mythical character?

You don't get to make wild claims about others based off of what you believe. Each person can, will, and has the right to believe whatever they want, whether it be God, Muhammad, Zeus, pink unicorns, or nothing. Who are you to claim something about someone else? What makes you think its ok to make blanket statements about anybody who doesn't subscribe to your own personal version of the afterlife.

You are but a single person on a world with billions of others. They have a word for people who think they are above everyone else, that word is arrogant.

Can they really be considered gods if they are created by human minds?

Exactly. God didn't create man, man created God.

It's kind of convoluted, does god have to be supernatural or is he one of us.

Actually, we're part of Him.

In my humble opinion.

thats insulting. to think i was made to be like someone else...especially when that someone else is so full of themself. i rather value my individuality and prefer not to be assimilated or yoked into fitting the same cast as thousands of other drones. especially not at the behest of any entity with the audacity to think it OWNS me or is my master. i am an american. my people shed blood to be free of a monarchy and i'll be damned (giggle) if we sacrificed so much just to throw ourselves into another one for eternity.

It's hard to describe atheism without coming off as insulting to theists. I am not trying to be proud or arrogant about what I believe though it may seem that way to theists.

To be called a blasphemer would be considered offensive if I was a theist. In reality is a meaningless word religious people call me. It's like the code word that a group of neighborhood kids in the club call the outsiders. If you don't want to be in their club you really don't care what club calls you.

There isn't one tiny shred of evidence that there is anything supernatural in the entire universe. Unexplainable things for sure, but not supernatural. Anybody who worships anything magical including Christians, Muslims, Wiccans or any other supernatural deities throughout history are wasting their time. I realize there are some benefits and positives that come from religion but increasing your odds to end up in fairy-tale land when you die is not one of them. Neither heaven, hell, nor the 72 virgins exist.

If I saw a biblical or other supernatural being come to earth I would say I was completely wrong and dedicate my life to my newfound theism but I'm not holding my breath. People up to a few centuries ago had less understanding of the world they live in. Religion answered a lot of questions that are now correctly answered by science. If the answers reward you with a trip to eternal bliss you can easily get people who would give their life for their beliefs. This is the power the religious leaders have yielded for centuries. The truth is the likelihood of aliens coming to earth is far higher than a supernatural being coming. I won't be worshiping the aliens though.

Ah. Another good one, Mis. I so get this.

I would so enjoy the spectacle of and the humor in random people attacking my non-belief, which I never dwell on or mention, if I ever dwelled on or mentioned it. I do, now and then, though, smile, get to enjoy the spectacle of and humor in random people getting suspicious of my wicked non-dwelling, non-mentioning ways.

Guess I might be going as an unbeliever too. And no one will ever know.

Good backcase, I haven’t seen any of your delightful poetry in a while.


I find it sad that many atheists and even theists do not take religion, or the spirit of it, seriously.


Many would condemn or promote religion religiously—that is their crime—but religion has changed beyond what we have traditionally thought it to be; and we, unawares of these subtle changes, or of how far our religions extend into life, end up criticizing or promoting only ourselves.
