Simply put, I began posting a series of comments that began "Atheist because..." followed by a brief reason. I'll share some examples, but I'd love to see what you guys come up with (especially when you're not limited to 140 characters).

I am atheist because:
* You never see faith healers emptying hospitals, but you do see the faithful emptying their wallets.
* a god who would sacrifice my health, wealth and the lives of my children to win a bet deserves no worship.
* picking up firewood on Saturday should not/should never have been a capital offense.
* drowning babies while complaining about abortion strikes me as hypocritical.
* the only moral response to a voice in your head telling you to kill your kid is NO!


More from you?


I am atheist because:
There is no such thing as magic
Noahs ark is retarded and disproven ( I discovered this just by thinking about it by age 13)

God did genocide and people praised him as GOOD
Plus the stuff you said above.

It does not take scientific proof to realize that the bible is Bull Shit.

oh...and I am atheist because I am logical

RE: Atheist because...
I wanted to know who created god.
The outrage this question caused flipped a mental switch.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

RE: Atheist because...
I'm an atheist because god can apparently see what I'm doing in the bathroom. I can't get off if I know an old man in the clouds is watching me, so it's better to just not believe in him and get on with pounding one out.

Because it's the most reasonable position.

RE: Atheist because...
I am an atheist because I tried to be a better Christian and it backfired. Knowledge is a powerful thing.

I am an atheist because no omnipotent being would allow children to be hurt or to hurt themselves. If there is an omnipotent being allowing that to happen it is not worthy of my adoration.

I am atheist because my back goes out when I bow too long.

I am atheist because I no longer have an idea of God.

a quote from my 8 year old daughter yesterday.

RE: Atheist because...
*There is no logic in explaining the existence of evil with the free will excuse when the same god was willing to limit our free will in other ways anyway; we can't fly just because we want to nor can we snap our fingers and pop over to the moon.

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

RE: Atheist because...
I'm a atheist because the lack of evidence. Also theist arguments are weak and pathetic. Seriously religious texts like the bible and Koran are very ridiculous. I bet most Christians never read the bible cover to cover.

... otherwise I'd have to believe Billy Graham, Ted Haggard, et. al. and I hate nausea.
