Atheist because:

* I can't fathom a God who lets rapists and murderers commit their atrocious acts because of free will, yet turns a woman into a pillar of salt on the fucking spot because she followed the perfectly natural impulse to look back as her home and everyone she knew and loved was being consumed by sulfuric fire from heaven. WHERE'S HER FREE WILL?

I quit believing in fairy tales a long, long time ago.

RE: Atheist because...
Before answering the OP:
There are a lot of people (you should know who you are) here using arguments from ignorance to justify their non-belief. I thought you guys are 'thinking atheists'?
You don't have to justify non-belief. Non-belief is a null position. It just is.

Because the evidence presented previously in my life has been proven to be either wrong or unreliable w.r.t. god(s).

Because I prefer to believe as many true things as possible and not believe as many false things as possible.

Without critiquing anything you're saying here, let me just point out that this thread and topic are not intended to present formal arguments so much as concise thoughts. If you or anyone else wants to challenge a particular statement of mine, be my guest.

RE: Atheist because...
Listen, you've already posted on this subject in a number of different threads. Coming onto THIS thread to revive the same discussion hijacks this thread's intention and is unappreciated. Let the rest of us get back on topic, please. Thank you.


Edit: Thank you, mods, for taking care of the derail.

RE: Atheist because...
I was a devout christian until I started having children. When I would hold my daughters, and look at them while they were sleeping, I knew I could never punish them with eternal anguish, no matter what they did. And if god were all-loving and all-powerful, then he could have figured out something better, or never made a hell..

So...I guess I'm an atheist because I'm a better father than god.

RE: Atheist because...
I blame Nietzsche and Sartre and Camus and Russell and all the existentialists. Bastards should be banned from schools. Angry
