RE: personal question
Before becoming an atheist I always felt extreme guilt like I wasn't living up to "god's" standard and now I do not have that guilt. it's the best and most freeing feeling ever and that's the best part for me. Second best thing is opening my mind to the reality of the vast amazing universe we live in and opening my mind more to science.

RE: personal question
Being able to be awestruck by the workings of nature & the cosmos without having to ascribe it to a deity, or be told something along the lines of, "See how awesome that is? God is infinitely greater!"

RE: personal question
Knowing that I can live like an animal without needing to be held accountable for my actions by an all-seeing deity - which obviously means I will do bad things.


...That's what the creationists wanted to hear, right?

I'm sorry, I was too busy not getting laid to read what you said.


...wait, what?

Damnit. Weeping

Is that how I'm supposed to do this atheism thing? I've been missing out on too many bad things.

I enjoy the fact that I'm not EXPECTED to do anything. I can be who I want to be. I'm free to live my life without the worry that I might burn in Hell for simply saying, "Goddamn it!"

I also like what someone else wrote about being able to see the beauty in the world without attributing it to some god. YES.

My Christian upbringing still makes it difficult to break that taboo. I'm planning a cookout this summer. Maybe I'll finally break bad. I already have some recipe ideas.
