I have no interest in seeing that movie, I’ve heard nothing but terrible things.

Anonymous asked: Would you consider posting a photo of yourself?
I’ve considered it many times but I just prefer not to. I’m certainly not a vain person and I’ve never considered myself to be overly attractive. I’m a rather average white male but I don’t like being stereotyped in to the average white male Atheist category. There are many things that come with the stereotype that I don’t feel hold true to me at all. I enjoy having a bit of anonymity too, it allows me to speak freely with less worry about any possible repercussions to my personal life. Perhaps some day I’ll change my mind but every time I’ve ever considered it I decide against it.

Well thank you for the compliment but I have never posted a (not obstructed) picture of myself on here. If you mean Ricky Gervais I am sure he would appreciate the sentiment. :)

Anonymous asked: Guess what? God loves you anyway. Doesn't matter if you don't love him back, he loves you anyway. Just thought I should say that😊 I don't mean to make it seem like I'm forcing it on you, I just wanted to say it.
If he likes it he should have put a ring on it.
(There are only so many ways I can respond to this same stupid comments that I get all the time.)

Anonymous asked: Would you be open to the idea of God you were presented with some kind of miracle?
No, I certainly wouldn’t. I would still remain logical enough to know that my own personal experience doesn’t change the reality of the world. I often find personal experience to be the toughest fact to attempt to refute when discussing religion but it is also the most worthless. Personal experience shouldn’t count to anyone beyond who experienced it yet people attempt to present it as evidence of some higher power constantly. People should remain skeptical of their own personal experience but rarely do. It is far more likely one or more of our senses have failed us or deceived us than that the laws of the universe were bent in our favor. If I were to experience something that would be considered miraculous I’d question my own mental stability first more than the reality of the universe.

Christians may want to pout and whine “That isn’t how it is!” but really though, it is.
Question with 12 notes
queennymeria asked: Just out of curiosity, do you think it is possible to be religious, but still have your own opinions and thoughts?
I think people can be religious and be a free thinker absolutely. They can’t be a true believer and be a free thinker though. To be a true believer is to relinquish some level of independent thought. To be a true believer they must accept some things purely on faith, regardless of their own opinion or thoughts.

Anonymous asked: I find that I'm not comfortable telling people I'm atheist yet. I just tell people I'm not religious if asked and don't elaborate. I don't think people will be rude but I'm still weary. How do you deal with it? Just flat out tell people?
It can be difficult for some. For me personally I’m thankfully rarely ever put in to that position any more. At this point it is fairly well known that I am a non-believer and I can’t remember the last time I’ve had to have that awkward moment. Many Atheists have developed a bit of a reputation for being bold about their unbelief and it seems that it is much more common now for Atheists to make their unbelief know.
Truthfully at this point I would be much less worried about telling anyone. It seems even in the last 10 or so years that non-believe has done a great deal in gaining acceptance. It is no longer as big of a deal and the bravery some display in being open and “out” about their non-belief has inspired many other people to come out. I can still understand situations where you may be cautious but for the most part, why worry? If someone is going to be so close minded and ignorant to judge you because of your non-belief they may be doing you a favor by letting their bigotry be known up front. You can avoid that person and won’t have to waste any more of your time or energy on them. You may even end up an inspiration to others. You don’t need to advertise it openly but don’t be afraid or ashamed of who you are. It is high time we no longer have to fear being right.
