Q & A
Q: Why did you become an atheist?
A: I get this question asked to me many times, so I guess I'll just answer it again. I became an atheist for many reasons (see my Reasons I am an Atheist page), but most of all because I think logically. You could also blame religion. Religion hasn't been too kind to me. From the two religions I've been exposed to, Catholicism and Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been able to see the hypocrisy of organized religion. I just figured I should use my intelligence rather than let it "gather dust in the back of my head" so to speak.
Q: Do you ever fear that there might be a Hell?
A: No. Even when I was a Christian I never believed in Hell. I think that Hell is used by religious leaders to scare people into doing something that benefits the religious leaders, such as money and stuff like that. It works, too, and that's why they use it.
Q: Do you have any moral standards despite being an atheist?
A: Yes. You don't need a god to have morals. See my morals page.
Q: What the hell is wrong with you?!
A: Nothing is wrong with me. Just because I need proof and logic behind most everything doesn't mean there's something wrong with me. People have deemed me Satanic, even though in order to be Satanic you have to believe in God as well, and I certainly don't (unless you're talking about the philosophy of Satanism, in which Satan is used as a symbol and is not worshipped). Just read the next question and you'll find out what I mean.
Q: You've been seduced by Satan! Get back to Christianity before it's too late! You're satanic and you need to be saved!
A: I hear this almost every day. I was not seduced by Satan or anyone for that matter. I'm smart enough to think for myself, and that's how I came to the conclusion that there wasn't a God (take note of the capital "G"). There was no demon standing next to me or using telepathy to control my mind into writing something like this. If I ever went back to Christianity, I would have someone kill me. Saved? I saved my own ass after I left Christianity. Since then, my life has never been better.
C: I'm now understanding your reasons. At first I thought it was strange but now I understand. Good job on the homepage.
A: It's nice to a hear a Christian who doesn't bash my beliefs. It's those kinds of Christians that I like.
Q: What ever happened to that essay you were going to put up?
A: Sorry. My parents burned it (literally) and rather than doing all the research again (it was a long essay), I just decided not to put it up. Sorry. Blame my damn parents.
Q: Will you ever go back to Christianity?
A: Hell no! It's to corrupt and even if there is a God he doesn't deserve worship if he wants to kill his own creation. The Christian God is too selfish if he thinks he deserves worship. My philosophy is you can't make a law that you won't follow yourself. God breaking his own laws shows hypocrisy.
Q: I feel like I'm the only atheist around me in my age group.
A: Well if this is case, you should be proud of yourself because you're different from the majority. Truth is though, there are probably more atheists than you think. If you're a closet atheist, other atheists wouldn't know about what you think, so they wouldn't tell you about it. Also, if you're sure you can't find any atheists in your area, go to my links page and then to the atheist contact list and search your city and see if anyone is there.
Q: Do you hate religious people.
A: Nope. Just as long as they don't bother me I don't mind them.
