There isn't, is there? O:
I respect your views. If you ever change your mind, or get curious, maybe read "The Reason for God" though it's kind if a long and tedious read. But then again, it's an argument you might find compelling.
Have a nice day :)
If there is no God, then all that exists is time and chance acting on matter. If this is true then the difference between your thoughts and mine correspond to the difference between shaking up a bottle of Mountain Dew and a bottle of Dr. Pepper. You simply fizz atheistically and I fizz theistically. This means that you do not hold to atheism because it is true , but rather because of a series of chemical reactionsÂ… Â… Morality, tragedy, and sorrow are equally evanescent. They are all empty sensations created by the chemical reactions of the brain, in turn created by too much pizza the night before. If there is no God, then all abstractions are chemical epiphenomena, like swamp gas over fetid water. This means that we have no reason for assigning truth and falsity to the chemical fizz we call reasoning or right and wrong to the irrational reaction we call morality. If no God, mankind is a set of bi-pedal carbon units of mostly water. And nothing else.
I love your quote :) thanks for sharing
i love that!
I'm not exactly best known for being friendly in debates, but if anyone has any genuine, honest questions about atheists or atheism, I'd be more than happy to answer non-judgmentally. I won't respond to flamebait though (an unfortunately large portion of this thread), for the sake of promoting said friendliness.

Umm...care to explain....?
But anyways....stunt, you make it seem like what's said so far hasn't been genuine or honest.....that's just what it seems like. So sorry if it came off that way to you.
I don't really have any specific questions. I'd ask why you're an atheist, but the anticipated response would be "because I don't have a reason to be a theist", burden of proof and all that.
Basically, just share any thoughts you have, if you'd like.
I belive that there is some truth to all religon, and we can learn something from all of them. If people chose only one, and ignore all the rest, they will be missing out. I think it's great that you're listening to other people's opinions.
I agree. Sometimes I look up and wonder if we're just an ant farm in someones closet. I can't tell.
I think everyone tends to have these views. You're not alone. As a Christain, who's struggled with my faith, I know what this feels like.
And I agree all religions tend to share certain views. I believe this is because most religions stem from another one.
People say Athiest are people who dont believ in god. What if i believe in him, but i just dont like him? I believe in all gods and goddesses, some i like, some i dont. But i'm not exactly athiest, and what about the wiccan or peagan cultures? Who says they are bad, or trying to curse people or turn them into frogs?! I know someone who practices wiccan , and they prectice the medicine arts as they call it. Or they meditate and try to astroproject them selves. It's nothing bad really, but this is my opinion, now i'd like to hear yours if you dont mind
Thanks for sharing, I'll get around to this later :)
I just have a few questions before I get to answering you more fully....
Do you mean you accept all gods and goddesses in every single one of their original doctrines? For example, if you believed in both the Christian god, the Hindu gods, the Muslim gods, and then pagan gods and goddesses, do you follow what each religion strictly says about each or do you apply your own interpretation to who you think those gods/goddesses are?
This is an important distinction, so I had to ask XD if you need clarification, I can do that...
Not to be bias, but I agree with Jade. Religions are kind of like relationships. You can't have everyone. It's one or none. Just my opinion.
