Atheism is also a religion. You believe in the non-existence of god. You can't prove god doesn't exist.

Yes, atheism is a religion, but without a church, without even an organization, without rules, without altar boys, without a pope, without things to believe in for no reason at all and most importantly without a made up god.

Ah, I "believe" in the non-existence of god. Note that theists will suddenly use the qualification "believe" in the sense of "you just believe it but you can't be sure". At the same time they are right, just because they happen to believe so. When applied to us atheists, belief is suddenly something ridiculous, naive and credulous. It is not even the case. I just ask: where is your proof? At least give me some evidence. Don't ramble on about your god and your storybook in ever more preposterous circles.

They collect stamps. I don't see the particular excitement of collecting stamps. You're also a collector, they say. Of non-stamps.

No, I can't prove there isn't such a being as a god. Neither can I prove that invisible pink unicorns don't exist or that they didn't create the world by accidentally bumping into each other. Ridiculous? Let me ask you: do you know everything? No? I thought so. How can you really be sure that they don't exist? You can't. That's not even the point. The question is how likely is it? Both the pink invisible unicorns and the Abrahamic god have about as much likelihood of existing as if you were to go out now, buy a lottery ticket and win the grand prize. And buying another one the next day and again win the grand prize. And so on for all the remaining days of your life. Theoretically it could happen, but how likely is it? Don't count on it for your retirement plan is my advice.


agressive and obnoxious reaction of religious people when found out


The cartoon above — not mine; it's floating around the Internet — is very clear. Maybe I should add that I myself make no claim whatsoever of having or not having a baseball. I owe no explanation. I don't have to prove anything. Those who claim to have a baseball, however, most certainly do.

So theists, quit your whining, your aggressive and obnoxious insistence upon your made up god and most of all, don't try to force your barbaric, cruel rules as substitutes for decent morals upon us, sane people.

Show us your balls.
