“Dawkinswatch” Asks: Why Are You An Atheist?

Everybody’s favourite Internet creationist, “Dawkinswatch” (watching Dawkins so you don’t have to), is opening up his blog for comments from Atheists answering the question: Why are you an Atheist?

He seems to think that these are the most likely possibilities:

– You read the works of Voltaire and became a convert?

– You are a secret Luciferian posing as an Atheist.

– You are a Communist?

_ You went to church when you were younger but never experienced God?

– You want to make yourself God and do not like competition?

-You are a postmodernisand you believe that that there is no ultimate truth?

-You read the works of Charles Darwin and are writing manuscripts of the next “My Atheist Struggle”?

– A Catholic Priest made a pass at you and you blame God?

– You are secretly in love with Richard Dawkins and have not told your parents that you are not like other men?

– You are not convinced evil exists.

_ You believe the ten commandments are harmful to the well being of human kind.

_ You are following a trend?

How many of you are Atheists cause you’re secretly FLAMING COMMIES eh? Go on, out with it.

As for why I’m an Atheist, well, I’m just leaving a comment telling him to peruse some of my blog posts sometime. I’m linking him to:

  1. Except he’s not really opening up his blog for comments. I commented yesterday, did not use any profanity or insults, and my comment is still in moderation.

    This here now, is quite a splendid blog!

    Actually Scatheist, it may take a day or two for your reply to appear if you haven’t commented on his blog before.

  3. Yeah, they are moderating comments. I went ahead and posted something, but I do not expect to see it appear.

    Wow. I haven’t really paid attention to that blog before. I commented, but who knows if it will be posted.

    I’m consistently amazed at how bent out of shape people get about atheism. Probably has made me a bit defensive, even.

  5. How many of you are Atheists cause you’re secretly FLAMING COMMIES eh?

    Well… I’m a flaming commie, but not secretly. And I’m a communist because I’m an atheist, not the other way around.

    Everything will appear, It is just that my askimet is particular.

    – I should have really asked are you against the English Grand Lodge and in favour of Grand Orient Fremasons , the originators of Atheism.

    The British believe in The Great Architech of the Universe.

    “The British believe … ”

    First I’ve heard of it…

  9. why isn’t “i’m hoping to be the antichrist” an option?

  10. Jeez, it’s just atheism! They act as if when we are atheist, we lose all our humanity.

    @Elles
    So jealous of you, an atheist by fourth grade, eh. 🙂

  11. […] You went to Dawkinswatch’s blog, you commented, he decided that the main reason we were all Atheists was because we were materialists, he wrote a new post. […]
