“Now, many (especially the atheists), may ask “Why do this, what’s the purpose?” Duhhh, Mr. Atheist for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net – to INFORM the public! I mean, in the City of Miramar, Florida, where I live, the population is approx. 109,000. My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 are ADMITTED atheists! Perhaps we may actually know some. In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism. Or perhaps they are radical atheists, whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh’s, in that case, if they are business owners, we would encourage all our Christian friends, as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be “feeding” Satan. Frankly, I don’t see why anyone would oppose this idea – including the atheists themselves (unless of course, they’re actually ashamed of their atheist religion, and would prefer to stay in the ‘closet.’).”

Yes, let’s define that shall we:

a·the·ist (noun) 1 one who denies the existence of god.
a·the·ism (noun) 1 the doctrine or belief that there is no God 2 disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings.

For atheism, I would love to point out that the word “atheist” with “ism” behind it does not make it a belief or doctrine, even though that is what large portions of people have labeled “atheism”. I, for one and do not claim to speak for all atheists, feel that the word “atheism” is a misnomer and used by people who are unable to understand or confront the true definition of atheist. There are great many people who are unable to wrap their heads around the view that there is no god because they usually cling to their religious beliefs to answer unanswered questions in their head, do all the thinking for them, and lean on it as a cultural norm or so that they can belong to a group where trust is inherent and not earned. I admit that it is alluring to believe that there is a being that loves me above all other things, has given rules to live by, and the gossamer blanket that somehow everything is handled through a supreme being. I cannot subscribe to this “faith” because it goes against my sense of logic, rational thought processes, and grants more questions than answers to the universe, the world, and how we were created. There are a great many creation theories launched by various religions that I cannot find any logical purpose to, nor can I rationally accept them as fact when they have the impossible occurring during its story and its origins. For right now, we are going to observe why I find these things illogical and improbable in a manner that I hope is concise and to the point.

“God” created the world from a void in days, most apologists contest that a day to the wonder being is 1000 years. To some, the “Goddess” gave birth to the world, got pregnant with her son by having sex with him, he dies, she gives birth to him and then cycle repeats itself. To others, man was created first and then woman was, but the first woman was a bitch and not subservient, so “he” made another woman to take her place. Some texts speak of “The Land of Nod” where both the first woman was sent and then Cain for killing his brother. All the children of the first created man and woman found appropriate wives and husbands and proceeded to “populate the earth” as commanded by “god”. In some stories, man and woman was kicked out of the “Paradise on earth” after a talking snake told them not to eat of a tree of “knowledge” of “good and evil” created by “god”, while in other stories they left the garden because “the grass is greener” effect. Either way, this possible beginning of the origins of life are ridiculous because science has appropriately answered these questions and they fail to provide a logical base in which to lend the belief upon. I can’t believe that the earth was made from a void as that contradicts evidence to the contrary. I can’t logically surmise that a “goddess” got pregnant with her own son’s baby, who grows up to be “god” and then dies as a cyclical reason behind seasons because its moral underpinning says that “incest” is okay besides the fact that it’s so terribly unbelievable it asks me to dispose of my logic and moral guidelines. I cannot believe the “Lilith” story because it asks me to abandon my belief that strong women are worthy of strong husbands if that is how they roll. I cannot believe woman was created from man’s rib as the entire story is laughable and has no proof to prop it up under reasonable scrutiny. If “god” created the first man and woman, how is it that “The Land of Nod” is populated at the time of Lilith’s exile and Cain’s curse? It makes no logical sense that the first created people found appropriately designated partners unless those partners were: A) sisters and brothers B) really NOT the first people and C) “god” created more people so they could mate without threat of birth defects caused by inbreeding. The whole “creation story” has holes in it large enough to drive a tractor trailer through, especially the “Xenu” story favored by the Church of Scientology that is so illogical I would have to take a massive amount of hallucinogens to even consider it a slight possibility.

None of my disbelief in deities or a deity is settled on a belief gauge. I am able to say that I know we evolved, the earth was created primarily out of a billion billion to one ratio that can be explained scientifically, and that any supreme being or beings had anything to do with it because the probability of their existence as touted by the thousands of religions out there is severely contradicting logic. That an most merciful, most gracious, perfect, omnipotent, omniscient being could not possibly exist and “love” his or her creation and allow them to have indescribable pain, suffer from various human conditions like starvation, or even have any struggles if he was exactly how they are described to be. If they are omnipotent, that same being cannot logically be omniscient. The probability that there is “gods” or “goddesses” or “holy spirits” (that makes people talk in “tongues” which is the most ridiculous presentation of delusion I could possibly find to support the fact there is no god) is so magnificently small, that the concept is manufactured by people is so glaringly obvious that I cannot possibly agree such a thing exists. Religion was used as a means to explain away the unexplainable for those unwilling to pick up professional research to debunk it. Those subscribe to a religion based on what story is told in an ancient text are deluding themselves and failing to think outside the box and evolve mentally as a individual and subscribe to the sheeple mindset because it’s the easy way out and they have someone to do the hard thinking for them. This will boggle my mind until the day I die because I am unable to reasonably and rationally accept that as a quality way to live.
