i am not an atheist, but an agnostic that leans towards atheism. by this i believe that one cannot prove or disprove the existence of God, but that I veer towards believing that their is no god, or at least not in the form that major religions believe god to exist. i do take issue with the ideas that religion and science are opposing forces, or that it takes a 'primitive' mind to create god.

many, many great thinkers now and in past have been believers in god, and have used god as inspiration for their greatest works. also, primitivism is a bit of a myth. as somebody mentioned, the ancient world contains works that are a mystery to modern minds, and some assert that the key to phenomena such as electricity is found in ancient works. rather contradictorily, we are always developing new knowledges, and to suggest that we know best, and they knew less is a bit counter-intuitive if you consider the things that the future will bring, and the ideas that the future will quash.

I don't speak for all atheist but as an atheist I do not believe in the existence of any of the gods because they were all created by men(mostly primitive men) that were living in tribal societies when the world was not as developed and as integrated as it is now. Religion was created by men to create order, it has helped man kind all through the dark ages and in the 21st century I believe that reason not unverifiable myths that were written mostly by men who thought that god lived in a mansion above the sky and did not want people to have a look at him should be our driving force. All religious text can be used to justify anything as far as you can pick and chose what ever you want out of it. Some of what the wrote is very good I must say and we can relate to it but so many of what they have written promotes division, sexism. Most religions have this problem since they originate from the violent stone age when the probability of a man dying in the hands of another man was very high.

I have visited Turkey, Italy, Cyprus and Greece and from their building you could get an Idea of how they lived their lives. They built mighty wall round their cities and there was little contact with people that lived out side those walls. They mostly lived in an enclosed environment. Slavery was generally accepted and promoted at that time, religious wars were the order of the day. Morality was far lower than what it is now. So do we really want to live our lives under the guidance of the words that these very tribal and violent men wrote? Men that have absolutely no knowledge of science and how the scientific process operates? Men that thought the earth was created before the sun, the centre of the universe and men who also believed that evil spirits cause diseases.

As some one said on another thread Religion relies mainly on guilt, fear,outlandish and completely unverifiable promises that have no evidence to gain obedience. People generally rely on facts and evidence in every human endeavour except when it comes to god because the god hypothesis relies and depends only on fear. There is no need believing in the unsubstantiated claims of men who thought that the world moves from place to place or who wrote so many falsehoods. We do not know these men and we do not know their mental condition/state when they wrote any of the things they wrote, some were for political gain while some were for subjugation and domination.

The world is a closed system and this life is the only one we have so we should LOVE it. This world is the only one we have and we should love it too not hate it because some ancient men that thought it was going to end in their life time say that there is another life which has no evidence at all. The closest thing that suggest that there is life after death is the Near death experience and it DISPROVES all religions.

Reason and logic is what should lead the way in the 21st century not reliance on ancient text and myths that have continued to bring so much pain and suffering to the world in one way or the other through division and assertions they no body has ever provided any evidence for. My god is better than your god yet no body is yet to prove that his/her god exist. No evidence to show that any god exist only the scriptures that are full of historic and scientific errors and internally contradiction.

Life should be treasured and valued to the max. We are own our own and it is up to us to make the world a better place. The nature of human beings is such that we are capable of moral behaviour, Moral behaviour depends upon social conditions, moral education, etc. Under these conditions, it is possible to develop a sense of empathy for other human beings. Morality is basic to the human condition. Religious texts are too outdated to be useful in deciding contemporary ethical problems humans need to use their intelligence to identify common moral principles according to which ethical dilemmas can be resolved not based on the writing of ancient men who thought that it is right to stone disobedient children to death or sacrifice other people to their god/gods.

Science is the only thing that can save man kind not god or gods, no god has ever done anything for this world but science has done and is continuing to do more than enough for mankind and it should be embraced not rejected because it antagonizes the writings of ancient men who believed that thunder is a direct wrath of their god. When small pox killed over 400 million people science was what saved man kind by providing drugs, vaccine and eventually eradicating it not jesus, Allah, mohammed or vishnu. science has improved the life expectancy of man, given man a better understanding of life the earth and the universe in general, science has taken man to the moon(higher than the tower of babel), improved man's morality and brought people together who would have never had any contact with each other at all. No god has ever done anything for humanity. Science is trying to better understand the forces of nature and prevent natural disasters like hurricanes, mudslides etc.

Even the self appointed men of god who believe god tells them what to tell others and believe in magic still rely on science. Pat Robinson for example believes that Jesus speaks to him daily and tells him to lay hands on sick people for healing depended on man made medical procedure to cure him of his prostrate cancer not jesus or the bible. When pastor Chris Oyakilome's(The self acclaimed magician) wife was sick she was taken to the hospital to be cured, drugs healed her not the imaginary holy spirit.

As an atheist I believe that we are on our own and we have only one life to live hence we should make the best of it an make sure we enjoy it to the max. We should take very good care of our selves be open minded and take very good care of our environment for future generations. Reason and logic should be what drives our future not belief in imaginary gods that have done nothing for the world and humanity.
