Why I'm Atheist

Updated on May 26, 2012


I didn’t always used to be this way. I used to believe in God, and heaven, and hell, until I realized that if God is all-knowing and all-powerful and all-loving, then he wouldn’t create sinners and he wouldn’t need hell. I realized that the bible had it all wrong, but since the bible is supposed to be the word of God, then God must be wrong too. And I know that religious people will argue to death that God has given us free will, but I fail to see how and why God would create me to be exactly the way I am and give me the free will to live out that destiny, then punish me for all eternity in hell for being exactly the way he made me to be. The whole idea of intelligent design simply falls apart when you examine the ideas of atheists, and don’t give me any ‘free will’ crap. If God intelligently designed me, then he intelligently designed me to be exactly how I will be, and he knew at the time of creating me exactly how I would turn out; he’s all-knowing, remember? So he knew when he was creating me exactly what I would become and exactly how I would believe—and that I wouldn’t believe in him. So he knew, at the moment when he intelligently designed me, that he was going to punish me in hell forever. Now, either God is a really malevolent two-year-old ripping the heads off of Barbie dolls, or he doesn’t exist. There’s no reason to create someone only to punish them in hell forever for being exactly how you designed them.

Other Christians I know will argue that they don’t believe God is like that, they don’t believe god will punish you by burning you in hell.

Read the bible. It’s all in there.

And you can’t believe in heaven without hell. You can’t pick and choose from that religion—not the way the true religion is set up. The bible is the word of God, and that hasn’t changed over two thousand years. God is all-knowing, remember? So he knew exactly what he was doing when he put the bible down in writing. You can’t try to tell me that he changed his mind, or that we have the right to re-interpret it now. No, God meant that exactly as ‘he’ wrote it.

Speaking of which, have you ever read Leviticus? Well, I have, and that’s some messed up stuff. If you want a reason to be atheist, go home and do your homework. Then come back and tell me you’re still a Christian. I can’t believe you teach your children that stuff.
