Proud Atheist by jlu650 Proud Atheist by jlu650
Yeah...basically what the stamp says.

I get a lot of shit for being an atheist, and quite frankly I'm sick of it. I've never done anything to hurt anyone, and yet to some, I'm automatically a bad person just because I don't believe in god.

Proof of God?
I find it kind of weird when religious people say "well, look at all the good things that have happened to you.  There's proof of God right there" Uh...no.  A lot of good things HAVE happened to me, more good than bad.  But, the fact is...bad things have happened to me.  Some of which where pretty devastating.  So...what causes that? And, what about all the people who have horrible lives much worse than mine? The reason my life has been all-in-all good is not because of any god, it's because I happen to live middle class in a 1st world country (well, I grew up middle class...right now I'm lower class, but I still have it pretty good) I guess you can call it the luck of the draw, but not god.  If I were born as a starving child in Africa, would your god be so kind to me? Probably not. 

People also say that I am "blessed" because I happen to have "good luck" and I have the ability to get the things I need/want. Like..recently I got a new job at the last minute before my unemployment ran out so that is somehow proof of god.  But, I was out of a job for six months and I applied to places almost everyday out of those six months and ONE place (and then later another) hired me.  It wasn't exactly luck if I applied to almost every place in town. Besides, I did the work...I did a nice resume, I went around to these places and made the calls and went on interviews.  These jobs didn't fall out of the sky. Almost nothing in life was handed to me (besides my unemployment...which yes, was a hand out.).  The computer I'm typing on...I saved for it, the car I drive...I bought it, I graduated from college on my own dime.  I work my ass off at my jobs so I can live independently.  Almost nothing in my adult life has been easy so far.  Yeah good things have happened, because I made them happen.  Sure, I've had a lot of help along the way but from people who exist, there has been no proof in my life that any kind of deity has been watching over me.  I don't mean this in a negative way, like "oh...my life is so miserable which means there is no god" because it's not that bad, it's just not easy.  So, in my opinion, good things and bad things are not proof of a god.  It's just life.

I suppose everything I've said doesn't disprove god either, but then again. You actually CAN'T disprove god
Yes, I'm an atheist and I just said you can't disprove god.
But you can't disprove my invisible polka dot pet unicorn that only I can see either.
So you know...

on that note: how cool would it be if everyone had a invisible polka dot (or whatever color/pattern your want) unicorn that only they could see?!? And it like...did stuff around the house for you and gave you good advice.  That would be freaking AWESOME!!

This...went in a weird direction. I've been awake for over 24 hours straight.  I'm done now.

The Gospel says to spread the good word to those who WANT to hear it.
People who are secure in their own religions, and atheists who are secure in their non belief obvious do not want to hear it.

This is one of the better Atheist stamps because in the long run we do have to respect what others believe, live our /own/ lives and get on with it. So good on you for making this. :D

My ex-boy friend kept saying i was "going to hell" just because I frankly don't believe in anything unless it has solid evidence to prove it. And my grandma keeps trying to drag me to church to get me to "stop believing in Satan." and all the bull crap. I don't understand why people can't just accept atheists for who we are and do what the bible says to "love your neighbor."

I still believe there is a god of some sort

But I do believe in evolution, the big bang theory, and other such things :la:

That's more of creation Evolution. it's where you would believe God set off the Big bang then just sat back letting things unfold. I'm atheist but I get along very well with Creation evolutionaries since they don't put "God did it" everywhere. I know this comment is old but :iconthemoreyouknowplz:
