A Christian Holiday, named after a German godess (Eostre), honoring a Jewish man (that probably didn’t exist), replacing a Pagan celebration……but who am I to criticize, *sips tea* Happy Easter everyone!
To anyone who thinks just atheists are assholes. Christians can be assholes as well as any monotheistic -OR- polytheistic religion. It’s part of being HUMAN so don’t say bad things about atheism and we won’t say anything about your religion.
Why don’t you believe in God? I get that question all the time. I always try to give a sensitive, reasoned answer. This is usually awkward, time consuming and pointless. People who believe in God don’t need proof of his existence, and they certainly don’t want evidence to the contrary. They are happy with their belief. They even say things like “it’s true to me” and “it’s faith.” I still give my logical answer because I feel that not being honest would be patronizing and impolite. It is ironic therefore that “I don’t believe in God because there is absolutely no scientific evidence for his existence and from what I’ve heard the very definition is a logical impossibility in this known universe,” comes across as both patronizing and impolite.

Atheist plus I fight homophobia and transphobia,

Me too. I worship what gives me the food I eat, the water I drink and the air I breathe. Characters in a storybook mean to inspire morales and a sense of community are just that to me. If we don’t wake up what gives us life will be destroyed. I believe it’s time to turn our eyes from the clouds and focus on how we shall survive ourselves, as a species. Seems a bit more important than which sect’s storybook is right.
There are worrying indicators that public figures in the atheist movement are perpetuating and enabling a hostile stance toward Muslims – in many cases, above and beyond the criticisms they direct at other religious communities
Christian: *gets mad at me for “insulting god”
Me: *throws in their face how Noah’s ark was so illogical*
Christian: *confused and has no fucking idea what I’m talking about because THEY HAVENT FUCKING READ THE BIBLE*
Me: *epic facepalm*
