    If you ask an Atheist about their faith  most of them will tell you a different story.Do you agree?

    Some will say......we did not say that there is no God,we just want proof.
    And others will say...God do not exist...it is just an imagination.
    And others will say...we can't prove what we say about His none existence.
    You don't have to be a rocket scientist to see "Mass Confusion" and "Disarray of Spirit"
    Yet....they clam to have all the answers to life.I see an empty plate.What do you see?

    no i don't agree. an athiest doesn't say that we want proof. we say simply that there is no god. seriously, it's pretty simple to an athiest but i guess for others it is complicated. it isn't a matter of proving whether god exists but it is a matter of looking at the world, using our mind and realising how silly believing in something like a god really is. you seem to be on a mission to make athiests look bad. pretty christian of you.

    I do believe in God and I do believe many thing about God that is inconsistent with organized religion. I believe in most cases organized religions do not know God well. They got God all wrong.

    Having said this, I do respect the opinions of all atheists. I understand many of their frustrations come from those who falsely proclaim that they know God well. They are frustrated and naturally do not trust these religious view. Religions preach of an ugly God, full of vengeance, anger, and jealously. They also preach that we should fear this God who will condemn you to eternal damnation if you don't accept him. This is something even atheists will not wish for anyone else. In fact it is quite natural to turn away from such a God if that is the case.

    Every atheist will come to know the truth about the wonderful our God in his or her own way. This can even happen after death.
    There are infinite paths to God.
    Once in the presence of God which is full of Love and Joy, the Grand truth will be obvious. Do not condemn them for their path and views, for God has a wonderful plan for everybody.

    I think they are as diverse as any one.  No one group believes all of the same thing.  Even among Christians there are huge differences in many beliefs.

    I think that Atheists are people who do not believe in God and that is their right.  I may not agree with it, but I think they are people who have made the choice that they are free to make.

    I think Christians, atheists, agnostics etc. need to stop mocking each other in this question area and take it to the forums.

    Atheists don't exist.


    Everyone, believers in God or not, believe in something that they have never seen. Some people believe in aliens and not God, some believe in evolution with out NO proof its any more then a THEORY. Everyone believes in something because everyone has a spirit that questions life. We all wonder whats beyond the earth, what happens when we die, what happened before we walked the earth. Our spirits long to learn and find comfort in something. My something is God because to me, He is more real then the air I breath.

    Yes i agree, but its not fault of the atheists that they dont believe god .If god wants atheist to love him he can force them by creating situations, but he do not force anyone because one or the other day or in other life they have to go back to kingdom of god .Atheists think that they dont care about god ,but they try to show their disapproval of god's existence(therefore they're thinking about god in one or other way ,However its not favor-able for them but ,god wins , atheist may think he do not care of god but they are doing by trying to deny his existence, if god really never existed or the atheists have firm belief that there is no god then why to try so hard to deny him rather why to even care to think of him?If really god never existed why all the countries on the earth have their own god so there is god )since they are thinking about god even without forcing them ,so again god wins

    I don't care if someone is an athiest. If someone claims to be an athiest but they are kind and considerate then they are far ahead of a person who claims to know God yet hates others for no good reason.

    You are aggregating Agnostics and Atheists into the same category as those who are obviously confused. Agnosticism is the belief that we cannot possibly understand the mind of God and that we will probably never know. True Atheists deny the possibility of a supreme being. Those who want proof in order to substantiate their belief are the same types who will likely drift between religions until the day they die. It is frustrating for religious folk because they want to lump everyone into a category of what they believe. Once you decide that you have no religion, you belong to no group. Atheists diverge in opinion aside from the "no God" aspect. I have never struggled with religious beliefs and have been an Atheist since my early teens. An Atheist simply believes that there is no God. It is no more intricate than that.

    Lee Stroble, a journalist and former atheist wrote a nice book: THE CASE FOR CHRIST.  As an atheist, he set out on a research to prove that Jesus and God didn't exist but later in the process, he wrote a different story that has changed many to believe in God.

    atheism is a state of mind - you can't JOIN atheism like you can an organized religion, so of course there will be many different versions - most atheists, in fact, would give a definition that the religious would label agnostic - ie, 'i see no evidence for a god, so i doubt there is one'.
