"Anyone who invents evidence does it on purpose that means they don't give a f $%^. I have never heard a believer sincerely present evidence. They really don't care."

"MarkFL, I think the believers have made their own artificial evidence to support their beliefs. If you oppose them, they will surely come up with some of stupid verses. And you cannot question them. So they are not careless but they are…"

"Only one thing required to become a believer. Stop caring about evidence. To be come an atheist, one simply needs to start caring about it."

How to Believe in God(s) - Six Easy steps.

1. First, choose your parents. At least one of them should be religious. If you say it is impossible to choose parents, then wish for dame luck to favour you with religious parents.You should also love your parents and be obedient to them. It now becomes easy to believe in gods, because you love your parents and your parents told you that there are Gods.2. Next, understand that believing in Gods in the absence of evidence is especially noble. What is the big deal in believing in something with…See More

"I use to fear a consciously aware, painful death. It was the realization that I will not be aware again and or aware that I was ever aware at all that probably frightened me the most. But that's the thing, when I die there is no more fear and…"

Michael Penn commented on V.N.K.Kumar's blog post Our Knee-jerk reaction to Death
"I love the way you present this and can agree fully. As a younger man I was afraid of death. This was so even when I was religious. At 70 today I no longer fear death but am aware of it causing much unfinished business and I hope that my personal…"

Sreeni: Prof. Kumar, one of my religious friends asked me about the real benefit of an Atheistic & Secular outlook. All I could think of and say was this: “The journey toward Atheism is a quest for the truth, truth which can be empirically tested and for which you can gather evidence, however distressing & frightening the truth might be.

Me: That is correct.…
