how many types of atheism are there ? or should we define atheism just as a form disbelief in supernatural ?

i d like to get your ideas about the  types of atheism and if they all are justifiable form of atheism. Because if you make arguments about the non- exisistance of god or gods , counter arguments are soon forged against your rational arguments. My question is  shoud we base our atheistic views on evindence or arguments ?

Maybe I'm soft but this made me cry

This magician who started out with a prank gave a homeless man a thousand dollar lottery ticket , but was so overcome by the emotion of the man  he carried on with the donation and also set up a fund for him which so far raised six thousand dollars and rising. I know it started out as a magician stunt  but it left me crying what do you think

The Fabricated God

 

    Did God create brain or did brain create God. Witout doubt Brain created God. But It is impossible   to make billions of people  understand it. But there is someting more interesting. Who fabricated God and religion? I mean it is for sure all belief sytems, all religions around the world are bullshits. the problem is why billions of people can't get it. It is really a mystery for me. I have a book which ı haven't read yet that tries to explain the religion and why it has so many…

Is Atheism “A Lack of Belief”? Not to An Atheist



It's a mistake for atheists to define atheism as a "lack of belief in gods." Why?  Because that’s the theists' definition of the word.  Many dictionaries offer this definition, I know--but dictionaries are largely written by theists who fail to recognize their implicit bias.  The word "lack" carries the unmistakeable connotation of deficiency, the sense that what is lacking is something to be desired. So, by definition, to lack something is to be in want of whatever…

Islamic Extremists Now Crucifying

Can you have any idea what sort of message ISIS is trying to get across with these photographs, because what they are really getting over is that they are barbarians and insane.

You can look it up online yourself but here is a link to the article i first learnt the news.

How are we Atheists seen to the world

Nearly half of all Americans said they would hate it if they had an Atheist in-law, apart from showing how fucked up Christians are in America, this also shows how far the secular movement has to go in convincing people of the validity of their argument. But I would like to turn the proposition around and ask how would you as Atheists feel if someone in your family proposed to marry a “bathed in the blood of Christ, fire and brimstone, Bible thumpers”. Because that I think is the equivalent…

The Pledge of Allegiance

The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892. Bellamy had hoped that the pledge would be used by citizens in any country.

In its original form it read:

"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

In 1923, the words, "the Flag of…

When a Jehovah's Witness Grows Up to be an Atheist

After all this time, all these years, all these degrees of separation - a mere knock guides me to shedded enemies. It was midmorning when a pair of shadows alerted me to some unexpected presences. I think I knew before I knew, my gut clenching beyond the usual spasm of social anxiety.

The blockers of the light lingered and adjusted themselves and finally put knuckle to…

Christian inequality and discrimination

If a country like the UK which is called a Christian country with an a established church with two thousand years of religious control, how can it accept such gaps between the rich and the poor in our society without the churches and Mosques going out onto the streets to complain and campaign about such injustice. Apart from a few notable exceptions the religious establishment doesn't say a word about it, how do we change things for the better.  Would more Atheists in positions of power…

Are religious people less intelligent than Atheists

Studies from around the world and going back many years have come to the conclusion that education is the number one factor in weather a person believes in a Deity. I've always known this but never used it in my argument against so called revealed religions,I've always thought it rude to mention it but maybe its time we did …

Thinking of you

When last year my sister was dying of cancer I would get some people come up to me and say they are praying for her, and I would politely thank them not thinking it was the best time to tell them I and she were Atheists and didn’t believe in prayer and I would like to have said that people who pray only do so because it gives them the sense that they are doing something constructive. But as Atheists what do you say to people  in that situation I myself just say I’m thinking of them. Have you…

Being accused of being a racist

something happened to me that i never thought would happen. After making a complaint to my landlord about a noisy neighbour, the said neighbour made a counter accusation saying that i had been racist to him, the landlord said he had to investigate both complaints, i didn't realise how upset and hurt this made me feel.

Luckily my anti racist history is well known to many people and i managed to prove i hadn't even met my accuser and he withdrew his complaint.

But what i would…

A few questions to ponder

That time of the year when Christians celebrate Easter is soon here with us. As they wait, I have a few questions that maybe a few of them would help put shed some light on.

1. If Moses was inspired and the book of the law was lost and destroyed and later written by Ezra, was he [Ezra] also inspired and if yes was the inspiration of Moses important? [WE are granting for argument's sake Moses walked on the planet]

2. HOW was David ancestry important in the life of Jeebus if he…

Why Did Our Brains Designe A God?

 For sure God  exists but not physically. It exists only in neuro circuits of brains of millons of belivers. Were we hardwired to have a God in our brains? I don't think so. Our brain is hardwired only to survive and produce children and  raise them until they can survive on their own.But evolution is a blind process. It produces not only organisims to survive but also some side products like music, art, and ofcourse RELIGION. We don't need any of them to survive. But they happened to exist.…
