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!
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.

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.
I don’t want to be anti-christian or anything, because some of the stuff in the bible is pretty helpfull and peacefull. But sometimes when I read about it, even if I don’t believe it, I want to cry. If God -if he actualluy exists- and was exactly how they Bible explains, would hate me and send me to hell.
That is why I’m not Christian.
And why I’m an Atheist.
Today in my honor sci-fi and fantasy english class we were talking about what society and the world might be like and weather we have a pessimistic or optimistic view on it.
so some mixed nignog-cracker says
“I have a pesamistic view of it , with how liberal people have become with being gay ,I think everyone might be gay in the future
It says in the bible that homosexuality is wrong and it needs to stop”
me:well the bible has as much factual evidence as harry potter, and harry potter says there’s a bald pedophile touching his snake to killing people and I don’t see anyone stopping Voldemort ,oh yeah he doesn’t exist ,the only thing real about the bible is that a man named jesus existed at some point in the middle east
