Atheism, in a broad sense, is the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist. Atheism is contrasted with theism,[4] which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists. – Wikipedia

I’ve always thought that Atheism is interesting, having no belief at all that there’s some sort of supernatural being out there that created us.

Myself, I’ve never been able to accept and never will be able to accept that “the big bang” or the other theories that support that there is no God, are actually what created the Universe (and the other universes). Simply because, what created the matter that made that “big bang” or what created the force that created the big bang? It just can’t have popped out one day. Everything has a cause and an effect, and there has to be a cause for the Earth/universe to be created or for the big bang (or other Earth/universe creating theory).

The only thing I’ve ever found that is semi believable is that in the [Christian] bible it says that their God is outside of time – eternal, infinate. No beginning, no end. Self existing, no one created him. Believing that god was never created, created us, and all that fun stuff may mean having a blind faith in something, but it says in Hebrews 11:6 of the Christian bible – “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. So basically if he is real — you would have to accept God into your heart and then if he is real, then once you die you will get eternal life in heaven with him.

Obviously it would be hard to accept that — people who were not raised in Christianity will probably be thinking scientifically “What proof” or “what created him? Everything has to have a creator” (and by the way, in the Christian bible it does say that our human minds cannot comprehend Gods powers and such).

But anyway, going back to Athiesm. I would love if an atheist said “Well, if your God has a plan for everyone, then it must have been his plan for me to be an atheist and a nonbeliever.”. I mean, how would you answer that?

You could say that since they’re acknowledging the Christian god, then they’re not true atheists. But then again, I could say “Unicorns are cool” but that’s doesn’t mean I believe that there really are unicorns. (And just for the record, from my understanding of this religion, their God would in no way plan for someone to be an atheist. He does have a plan for you — but you’ve  turned your back on that and respects you enough to respect your decision. But does give you chances, opportunities, and such to go back to Christianity and worshiping him. But apparently he does it in his own special way where he sends..almost  like hints to go back to him or sends people to talk to you with it). That argument could kind of become a paradox because you could argue equally for both sides, depending on the intellectuality and how much knowledge each side has for their religion (Atheism and Christianity).

Atheism in a nutshell; That no God exists and they typically believe in, or have no thoughts on the  moderately complicated but established scientific theory, such as evolution or quantum mechanics.

Christianity in a nutshell; There is a God, he created everything. He was never created and has no ending. He is forgiving and loving but gives you choices over your life. He had a son named Jesus who came down from heaven in the form of a baby, who was given birth by a virgin (Mary). He died on the cross so we can all be saved by God and go to heaven.

Which do I believe in more? Christianity. Because in that religion there’s a more satisfying answer to many questions and it’s more interesting. Then again, I’d rather explore other religions first before making a life desicision as to what religion I am. But for now, Christianity it is.
