WHY I AM ATHEISTIC

From: Marni T.
Sent on: Friday, August 17, 2007 7:16 PM

I am Atheistic because I have never seen, heard, felt, tasted or smelled a single shred of tangible evidence suggesting the existence of a supreme being.

I am Atheistic because I have never in my life sensed any sort of God in the real Universe, or in myself. The Universe is miraculous and so is my own existence, yes- but I do not believe it is so miraculous as to go beyond the limits of reality. I believe that truth can only be something that is real; that which is not real does not exist.

I am Atheistic because I believe that the concept of Gods arose because Mankind is fearful and conceited.

I am Atheistic because all of the world’s religions are cluttered with nonsense. I believe that all this nonsense was designed by Man, for various reasons, to obscure the lack of truth.

I am Atheistic because I have observed firsthand far too many instances of religious hypocrisy.

I am Atheistic because I believe that goodness is within the scope of our own emotions.

 

Damn, that was difficult.
