I'm a secular humanist and believe in intersectional feminism. Nsfw sometimes.

Well…I’ve just lost the love of my life simply because I am an atheist. I honestly don’t know why I expected it to work out but for a while it did seem like he actually cared about me.

:( I have a friend who went through this exact same thing. Her and her, then, boyfriend were together for about two years, and the entire time they seemed to be able to put their differences aside and enjoy each other, and unfortunately she got too comfortable because the entire time her family accepted him, but his family didn’t accept her…and eventually convinced him to end it….

It’s heartbreaking, and I really wish you the best in moving on and finding someone who accepts you no matter what.

“In order for Pokemon to advance in power, it has to evolve to another level. And each evolution, he becomes more demonic in appearance. And eventually he gets to the point where he’s totally demonic.”

“These are all oriental demons. The names are actually names of demons.”

Just… Just watch it. This is just one of the reasons I hate religion. I can’t believe people like this even exist. I wasn’t aware that “Jigglypuff” was a demon. Also, they start talking about how Minecraft is possibly “occult-ish”…

 this is…serious…?…..omfg.

Except for God, do you believe in anything supernatural or pseudoscientific? (Ghosts, alien abductions, spirits, souls, demons, psychics, magic, Harry Potter, etc.)

Nope…
I believe that if there is some “supernatural universal force” that it’s beyond any dimension that we can comprehend. But, for the most part I just don’t believe in all that gunk.
I call people “lucky” in the past sense where they HAVE BEEN lucky by chance, but I don’t believe in wishing someone luck and expecting that to magically happen.
I don’t believe in Ghosts/”spirits”/demons/psychics (they’re bullshit)..lol…
Alien abductions are a mostly no, as in I don’t believe anyone who claims to have ever seen a UFO or been abducted because humans just like to make shit up and like to exaggerate what they’ve actually seen to spice up the “importance” of their lives. However, I do believe in the possibility of alien life out there….we just haven’t stumbled upon a habitable planet within a goldilocks zone to find any life similar to ours.

OH BUT HELL NAW HARRY POTTER I’M GONNA HAVE TO SAY IS A FACT! I DON’T BELIEVE IN ALL THE REST BUT HARRY POTTER IS FOR REAL, SERIOUSLY. He’s been there for me through thick and thin. Lol…jk.

Do you think religion is obsolete and should be wiped completely off the face of the Earth, or does some good come out of it?

I absolutely think that religion should be wiped completely off the face of the Earth. The only “good” that comes out of it is a person’s individual experience with it by themselves. It’s a placebo of hope or whatever.

If I was somehow the dictator of the world, I would have a hard time deciding how to go about abolishing organized religion. If I ordered for churches to be torn down, I’m sure they’d just be built up again. That’s unfortunate.
I also, don’t like the idea of taking freedoms away from people, and although I detest religion, as an atheist I am fully aware that I have no right to take that away from anyone.
My main priority would be to exclude religious involvement as much as possible, and keep it as something that individuals do on their own time. And that’s probably all I could really do, in the hopes that maybe they’d see just how unnecessary it is in a good world.
So, basically, if I was a dictator…I doubt I’d abolish religion entirely, I would just make scientific understanding much more easily accessible to people everywhere… Because it seems like religion knows to enforce itself on vulnerable beings (poverty-stricken areas, schools, and hospitals), and that’s why they latch on…because they have nothing else. So, science will need to get there first.
Oh, and the vatican will have to be silenced or else it’ll just tell people that condoms are bad and if you die of aids you’re a martyr and whatnot.

That all said, I know deep down everyone wishes they could be a dictator of the world because everyone has their own opinion of what would make this world a better place…but like, I really hope no one does, including me…
Why do I hope for this? Because everyone’s answer to this question sucks, especially mine LOL.

15 day atheist challenge (2)

What religion did you grow up with? Did you have positive or negative experiences with religion?

I didn’t really grow up with any religion. My entire family is from Poland and very Catholic so they told me bits and pieces of that, however my actual parents didn’t bring religion into my life, like…ever. My dad only took me to church on easter because my grandma would harass us about it (even though she lives all the way in Poland)…he just didn’t want to lie to her and felt whatever about it.
My dad always made his view on religion very clear, though. He hated it and thought all religions were fucked up once they got past the point of personal belief, which is what I think too. Basically organized religion should be brought to an end. My mother however never discusses religion, like…ever. When it comes to morality, she learns it from her own experiences and from the non-religious aspects of society. The only churches my mother and I have ever gone to were just really fancy, old cathedrals on our trips to Europe to look at Michelangelo paintings and Notre Dame and such. But we never prayed when inside, we were just tourists checking out preserved history lol…
I think one of the things my parents wanted to get away from (besides the communism in Poland) was my family’s religious schedule. Guess they knew how to not fuck up a child hahaha…

15 day atheist challenge

At what point did you know you were an atheist? Why did you become one, what were the factors leading up to the decision, if you weren’t always one?

For most of my life, I believed in a higher power, but was against organized religion. As I grew up, I didn’t really look into labels however I fell into the agnostic/deistic category where I figured, “well if there’s a God then he created science and then fucked off”..

When I was seventeen and upgrading courses after graduating highschool, I got into physics and outer space, it was just super fascinating to me. And deep down, while I was looking at pictures from the Hubble telescope and reading about black holes, I just sort of admitted to myself that the idea of God seemed kind of stupid, and that there’s little to no possibility that there’s a grand plan for humanity.
It wasn’t until just last year, actually, that I finally “declared” myself an official atheist. What had happened was one of my good friends contacted me because she was extremely depressed about her boyfriend dumping her, so I went and hung out with her during which she ranted about how she was atheist but was willing to keep quiet about it while dating her evangelical christian boyfriend. He just kept pushing his beliefs on her and his entire family detested her, and finally after about two years of them dating he finally said, “I can’t date someone who doesn’t believe in God”. And the whole situation just seemed so messed up to me, not the part about him wanting to date a believer, but his ridiculous “arguments” to try to convert her… It confused me that someone so smart and compassionate could have been hurt by someone so stupid.

Anyway, then I really got into atheism and started reading more about how fucked up religions are and just became extremely fed up with the corrupt world.

And, my boyfriend considered himself an atheist up until just recently when he said, “I’m more of a Possibilian” which is okay, but I’d say most atheists could agree with that in a way. It’s kind of a given… and not yet testable. So, I don’t really see the point in going so far as to call yourself a possibilian, but alright whatever lol.

15-Day Atheist Challenge

Everyone loves challenges! I made one for the atheist community on Tumblr to enjoy. A bunch of controversial, fun-to-discuss stuff here.

  1. At what point did you know you were an atheist? Why did you become one, what were the factors leading up to the decision, if you weren’t always one?
  2. What religion did you grow up with? Did you have positive or negative experiences with religion?
  3. Are you a more outspoken or more apathetic atheist? Why?
  4. Do you think religion is obsolete and should be wiped completely off the face of the Earth, or does some good come out of it?
  5. Did you lose any friends because you decided to be an atheist? Did your family flip out?
  6. How do you feel about so-called “militant atheists” such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris?
  7. Except for God, do you believe in anything supernatural or pseudoscientific? (Ghosts, alien abductions, spirits, souls, demons, psychics, magic, Harry Potter, etc.)
  8. What’s your political alignment? Does your atheism influence how you vote and how you feel on issues?
  9. Even though you’re an atheist, have you ever experienced a moment that could be called “religious?” Like an epiphany about the world or complete peace?
  10. Are you spiritual, or are your feet always on the ground?
  11. Do you have/plan on having a career in the sciences? Alternatively: which branch of science intrigues you most?
  12. What happens when we die? Do you fear death?
  13. Would you ever date/marry somebody who follows a religion? Be honest.
  14. On a scale of 1-10, how happy are you with life at this moment, and why?
  15. Recommend a book. :) (Doesn’t have to be relevant to atheism, just any good book.)

I neither have the time nor stamina … but I love this idea.  If any of you take up the challenge, please let me know so I can follow your progress.

Great idea, anonymousatheist!

it just blows my mind.

andawayawaysheflew:

I just read an entire blog, which was actually supposed to be a personal blog, and every other post was about how much the blogger hated Christians and about how dumb she thinks we are. It literally blows my mind to see how she, an atheist, can spend so much time and emotion on us. I understand that she/atheists have their “belief” that God doesn’t exist and I understand that they think that we are completely single-minded or dumb, if you wish. BUT I cannot, for the life of me understand why you would want to put so much time and effort to try and prove us wrong.

On the other hand, I can completely grasp why a Christian or whatever believer of any other religion would put so much time and energy into proving God’s existence and love for humanity to those atheists. I can understand why, because we feel that there is only so much time on Earth to know God and love him and do his will. We feel the urgency for our fellow brothers and sisters to believe in God for the well-being of their souls. But atheists have no point or goal in proving us wrong. Maybe they get some kudos by their fellow atheist friends, but nothing else. If someone proved to me that God didn’t exist there would be no bettering of my soul, character, personality, life, afterlife, existence. I would end up having less love to share with others.

If you are one that will invest your time and emotion to try and prove to me that God doesn’t exist, you are wasting both of our time. It doesn’t hurt you in any shape or form if I choose to believe in God.  

 Seriously?

Why would you have less love to share with others if God was disproved?
Why are you angry at people who are frustrated with the corrupt world, poisoned by religion? Yes, it is poison when spread out loud. If you PERSONALLY believe in a God and you keep it to yourself, fine. But, an organized religion? And then to try to impose those messed up beliefs, your fucked up book that contains a God that raped a woman (Yes, he did! Don’t deny it!) upon not only atheists but people of other religions as well.
I am angry at religion because it’s losing its power and going through the most INSANE lengths at wrapping itself in the lives of people who don’t want it.

An atheists point in proving you wrong is NOT to make you feel like shit, but to show you just how wonderful this place is without the need for a God that, hello, is not involved in anything.

I’m guessing you’re pissed about my blog, here. And the post I made was in reference to the vatican. Do you have any idea how much pain and suffering the vatican has caused?! Do you have any idea how cruel it is?

It isn’t the idea of believing in God that I am obnoxiously against, though it is my personal belief that he was created by us, but of organized religion that I am against.
And if you NEED a religion to find peace in your life, then I feel really sad for you.
And, I don’t speak for all atheists here, I know my arguments are totally poorly constructed mostly because I’m just so frustrated this is more like a rambling rant than an actual discussion.

Fellow atheists, how about you help me out here? Edit my argument and make it more sound because I’m just too pissed to even go there right meow. Like, just fuck right off.
