I’m not an Atheist. I’m a naturalist. A theist believes there is a God who made and governs all creation. When you put the letter “A” in front of a word it means the opposite. So Atheist means literally someone who does not believe in a god who made all. And here is the problem with the word Atheist. In no other instance that I can think of, does a person identify with something they are not. No one says they are agay. Agay is the opposite of gay. You would simply say that you are straight or heterosexual. Contrastly, someone does not say that they are astraight or aheterosexual. There are words for gays and that word is homosexual or gay, not aheterosexual.
Agnostic is another weird identifying word. Agnostic people believe that a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God. Let’s pick that apart really quickly. They do not have faith. Did you catch that part? An agnostic has no faith, meaning that they are not religious. Basically agnostics believe that there is no evidence to believe in god or disprove that once exists! Let’s try that again. They believe there is no evidence that a god exists. What that part of the full definition means is that agnostics share half of their beliefs with atheists – therefore can be defined as atheist. Agnostics are atheists that are too afraid to be atheists.
Both of those words are stupid, much like the people that subscribe to their respective doctrines. In a study you can find here 73% of people said they would be upset if their child married an atheist. I believe this to be the biggest reason why people decide to call themselves agnostic instead of atheist.
Let’s bring the point home. Let’s hammer it down and quit the nonsensical blabbering.
I do not consider myself an atheist because I do not identify with things that I am not. I call myself a naturalist. I believe in science, evolution, and many theories made popular by Charles Darwin. The problem with religion is that some people go to college and learn – and when they learn they figure out that the Bible, Quar’ran and all of the other fairy tales are horse shit. That’s why I’m not an atheist and I don’t believe in god.
