Why atheism?

Being promised a reward after we die is the biggest, most deplorable con of all time. Of course we are rewarded after we die, how incredibly convenient for those telling us how to live. A life without religion made my life easier. Not easy, but easier. The time gained from abandoning the outdated rule book is invaluable. I am no expert, I’m simply a person surrounded by supposed experts that need exposing.

A life without religion isn’t a castle built on sand. Far from it. We need God to be moral? History tells us how false this misconception is. I hope my blog can do the same. If we replace the concept of God with common sense, we will be just fine.

I am your everyday atheist, admitting ignorance and suffering the consequence. If there was one reason I had for blogging, it is that we live in an incredibly violent world and atheism is still widely condemned.Why, in a world of experts, would the idea of not knowing offend and aggravate so easily? Considering the history of religious violence that has plagued our existence, condemnation of atheism is hardly surprising yet illogical. Humanity is in its infancy, my blog is more than capable of creating a tantrum big enough for some governments to consider the death penalty. This is not a world we should be proud to live in. If you fear words condemning your belief that kills so many, or feel the need to speak on behalf of your God, I urge you to follow my blog.

Atheism brings us to the realisation that spending our days speaking for an all wise and powerful God is time wasted. Leaving religious practice behind opens doors that you have always been told to keep closed.

I am a twenty something blogger in the latter stages of book writing. I hope to build an audience that my book will appeal to, theist and atheist. I greatly appreciate the likes, follows and feedback both positive and negative. Say hello!

  • You really are stupid if you don’t believe in a god.
    Being an atheist is a fallacy in a person logic to try to make him superior

      • I am often ready to delete, (I haven’t set the approval setting up before someone comments) however I find stupid comments may help others to see when someone isn’t being rational. At least I hope so…

    • Not even brave enough to use your real (blogger) name? Well, from your comment I highly doubt you have a blog, and that you run around the internet looking for people to dis. Makes you feel good and righteous, I bet.
      Well, if you want to, why not dis me on my blog. I’m a new kind of atheist, one who denies any and all superior beings in our whole universe, yet I believe we have an eternal spirit, and I believe in reincarnation. Must make me even stupider than Sam here. But I would like to know, how does logic (your word) make us atheists superior? All people are equal. In fact, in my personal philosophy, all living being are equal, because we all share one thing in common, life.Life is not a quantitative thing, If you are alive you have exactly as much life as the atheist talking to you, or a Buddhist, or a Jew. Or Sam! She deserves as much life as anyone else.

      You must be talking brain power. Does Sam have more brain power than you? Or are you writing in English because the blog is in English, but your main language is something altogether different. No matter, none of us are stupid. But you are different, you seek out people to tell them they are stupid. What kind of rush. or satisfaction, do you get out of that? Dissing someone you don’t know, and can’t see. I think you should have a talk with your representative of god on earth. Tell him/her what you are doing. Hopefully she will tell you how inappropriate you are being. Everyone has the right to make their own choices, and live the life they want to live. There are so many insults I could throw at you right now, just from the 27 words you used, but why should I? I don;t hate you. In fact I love you as a brother (or sister. but I highly doubt you are female!). I love everyone on earth, (well, maybe not Donald Trump right now, he is abusing his power and does not care if he hurts anyone in the process). But the Americans elected him, so they must see something I do not, since I am a Canadian.
      Gee, I bet you haven’t even read this far, You already know I am superior to you, just like Sam is. You told us so. So at least you have some humility in you. That might be a good place to start…
      I wish you a long and happy life,

      • Oops, sorry. I didn’t notice your “An Atheist in the Philippines” was a guest column. I automatically took you for a Samantha, or something else feminine. Not that it matters, you were brave enough to put Cynthia’s post on your blog. I am going over my own blogs right now trying to take the term First Life out of it as much as possible. I still believe in it, but seems other readers try to tell me I’m a theist-in-waiting. So, I think being a spiritual atheist who believes in reincarnation is weird enough for now. It’s no use offending people who might otherwise be interested in my Spiritual Atheist views, without bringing a “potential” universal being into the picture. I just hope I can rewrite this without losing any of its potency.So, again, sorry for the mix-up. I guess I am as stupid as Anonymous says an atheist is. But I can live with that…

  • Atheist. Surely a strong word. Well, I am gonna share this small (might be insignificant but okay) experience. Last week, my mom and dad met with an accident , a fatal car crash on an interstate. They nearly escaped it and after they returned home, they said to me that we should be thankful to God that we were saved. Well my question was why be thankful to Him, when the event happened on his watch.

    • Surely not insignificant to them! This is a story that reminds me why I am not religious, as happy as I am that your parents survived the journey, we should not praise a God that kills around us and spares us. If we praise a God that kills or at least lets suffering happen, are we moral people? Thank you for checking out my blog and providing your thoughts.

      • Morality is not decided if you live under the shadows of a non-existent superior being. Morality is what you do, what you believe in irrespective of whether you break the social norms for the greater good , even if its an act against God. Anytime! Would love to have some feedback on my blog. If you could, that would be great 🙂

  • I have, in mid-life, settled comfortably into a place of unknowing, and there is a great deal of freedom in that. No need to defend, argue, convince, force, partition, alienate, or kill based on a concept that is a matter of pure speculation and faith. I’m open to whatever and figure I’ll find out when I die. In the mean time, I put values such as peace, kindness, generosity, thankfulness, and compassion at the forefront – that’s good enough for me. If there is a god, she’ll be satisfied with that or she’s not worth my time and energy. 😀

    • It is always great to hear people using their lives for good, you of course are no exception 🙂 It is interesting that you refer to God as ‘she’, as open as I am to God being of both genders, I always refer to God as ‘him’ judging by how men benefit from religion much more than women throughout history. If God is a woman, I am sure she is pretty pissed off at such inequality!

      • I was just having fun, which goes right to my point that we don’t know any of this so why have wars over it. Could be a she, him, it, an alien, sentient planet, coincidence, luck, or nothing at all. I’m open.

    • Good to meet you too and thank you also, I’m sure we will share similar posts! I look forward to reading some of yours 🙂
