Why Become an Atheist? 
Sunday, July 14th, 2013 | 07:19 pm (UTC) - Why become an Atheist
I have to congradulate you for once again putting a definate and accurate definition to points of view. I have been looking for a place to thank you for perfectly describing my thoughtful agnostic point of view. I have said no one can prove God exist. No one can prove he does not exist. So I officially don't know. I decline all of the faith based proofs so what do they have left?

good job on the explanation. after listing to you I had a that's why i'm an atheist moment. I don't how often i tried to believe in the bible and I it was like a bitter pill, hard to swallow. also like your self it's the world we live in , in the now. the awe of the universe I love to look at the moon at night and know we are in paradise, right the fuck now and when it's over its over! theirs no heaven or hell, judgement day, live for today, we cant change the past, we cant predict the future so lets be some real nice people an live for today

Steve...only recently discovered your work and I am very impressed. You use reason and evidence as your basis and (mostly) leave emotion out of making your points. Plus an atheist feline prop.. Bravo! So to my points:
First, I never hear anyone comment on what the term ~god~ actually means. For theists it is infinite everything as far as I can tell. Well, our finite brains simply cannot go there. We can only imagine so much of a theoretical infinite line in geometry or even get our heads around a finite concept like 1 trillion dollars. So, I hold that this infinite god cannot be conceived of by anyone…yet theists have the god concept down cold.
I am an atheist because I see no empirical evidence for anything supernatural of which religion is a subset. I am not superstitious. It is not because I hold any “belief” that there is no ‘superstition’. I think that is how a theist would like to characterize my atheism. It would make it easier to characterize my position as the opposite of his for debate purposes.
Keep up your good work…ordered a used Josh McDowell book and look forward to following along with your assessment. It has been brought up to me in the past as suggested reading by theists so I will be better armed in the future to discuss the issues. Just finished the King James bible a few days ago....how the hell did they get a religion out of that??!

Hi Steve, I like your work and your thoughts on this subject are quite good. I watched the video from Matthew4nineteen. He does not have comments on his video page so I did not ask him any questions or leave a comment.

In is video, he states that he's been an christian for about 5 year and before becoming a christian he was into the "sex, drugs and rock & roll" lifestyle and that he no longer "needs" that sinful lifestyle. He implies or seems to imply that this lifestyle is what an atheist is about.

So your point that Matthew does not understand the root of his question is right on.

He goes on to say that he's a christian because fellowship with other christians and preaching makes him feel good. He does not talk about truth and what is true to him. He basically asked why he should give up the fellowship that makes him feel good for a lifestyle of sin.

I hope Matthew watches your video and understands what you are trying to tell him.

Steve, I do not know if you will read this but may I ask, did you ever get a response?
