Atheism is dead, long live atheism
« on: December 21, 2013, 10:13:54 PM »
4.5B year old atheist here. (cackle, cackle).

I've been an atheist for so long I didn't even know there was a god somewhere in anyone's mind.

I didn't even know the word or what it meant until someone shoved it down my throat and explained I was a pariah. I was devastated for at least a second or two but being Herman the German who is used to hardships and things like that I went back to cackling (I told you I was old).

Yeah, I'm being a bit reverent here but sometimes I just can't help myself. I inhabit another atheist forum and see  so much drivel and nonsensical explanations and pure malarkey not to mention horrible attempts to justify or refute atheism or theism or another ism. Still it is sometimes fun to follow some threads to see what sort of poppycock comes of them.

Don't get me wrong at times I can be very serious knowing someone somewhere will throw a monkey wrench in my logic seriously or in jest.

In any case I'm new here. It's time for bed now (22:07 GMT -5). Be back in the AM.

Welcome.
I have stated this over and over everywhere I go. Atheist is a term made up by those who made up a god. Everyone is an atheist when they are born. You have to be brainwashed to believe in a god.

This is normally the part where I say, "Welcome to the Dark Side." You're probably old enough to be my master, though.

Welcome aboard. I didn't really get the whole god thing either, I always thought it was a joke. It's only recently that I started to realise some people actually believe that nonsense  :-s
