Just wondering :) i am an atheist,and everone where i live thinks i am pretty odd because of it, ;).
If you are one what was it that made you one? With me it was the whole dinosaur thing when i was a kid and im more of a facts and evidence kind of guy than a faith based one.

I think it's odd that anyone would think you odd for being atheist.

There are many, many atheists on the PPK. I am one of them.

I've been an Atheist for over half my life now. I don't see any evidence for any gods so I don't believe in any. Actually, I've come to the conclusion that "is there a god?" is a meaningless question. First you have to define what you mean by god, and it generally gets defined in a way as to be untestable and unprovable.

There was a poll on the PPK previously (maybe on the old boards, I can't recall) where the results showed that as a group, we are overwhelmingly atheist or agnostic. There are awesome people here who are religious and/or spiritual too, but you are in good company here as an atheist.

Atheist here! I just don't find any of the cases for god compelling. If I'm in a generous mood I call myself agnostic, but typically it's atheist.

I think apatheism most aptly describes my view of religion and of god. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apatheism

It is more likely than not that god (as typically defined) doesn't exist, so in that sense I am an atheist. But for me, what matters more, is that it makes no difference what the answer is (other than to satisfy our curiosity).

Hi to PPK, by the way, I was on the old boards way back when. I'm returning only now.

I'm one as well.

This is timely for me (only tangentially related, but I figure this is the thread to complain in). An atheist friend railed against vegetarians the other day, using that infographic of a cow that lists the different products that various parts are used for (it's the one that says blood is in pasta and cake mix). He says that vegetarians are hippies that don't think. This just clashed so much for me, since the way I think - as critically as possible - is what led me to both conclusions.

Absolutely. I never even learned what "God" was until middle school.

Only since April, after a long time being raised Christian, and then about half a decade questioning and researching and contemplating and conversations. I had an epiphany at my desk at work. "Oh... wait... I don't think any of this is true."
