Default Atheist, are you one??

I am. Wasn't christened. And I champion the cause to this day.

Yes, I'm an atheist. Have never heard a convincing reason to believe that any of the various gods are real.

I expect that it would come as a surprise to few regulars here that I'm also a committed Atheist,I saw through the light in Junior School and My lack of faith has not wavered since..

Gee, what could possibly go wrong in this thread?

Anyway, I'm an atheist (okay, technically I'm an Existential Zen Buddhist, and I'm not even kidding there) and have been since I was quite young. I just never bought into the whole Hereafter thing.

Interestingly, I attended a private Parochial school from the 5th grade on. I used to joke that I was their "token atheist." They put up with me; looking back I have no idea why. Oh, wait, I guess I do know why - it was the tuition my parents paid. Got a pretty good education there, I must admit. I just ignored the morning prayers and all the God stuff.

I was picked on by my RE teacher after my dad wrote a letter demanding I be spared the mumbo jumbo. But legally I had to attend. He failed my homeworks and caned me for no reason until my old man spoke to the headmaster and threatened to pull me out and let the press know. Mr RE ignored me the rest of the term. The next term you could opt out and chose something exciting like French

Like ubu_roi, my religion would be Zen Budhism, if i had that much faith in a religious order.
(My) truth is, I did a lot of soulsearching after a near death experience about 20 years ago, I looked into most variations of 'religion & spirituality' hoping to find some solace. But as Zen has no God and seems like a decent & wise credo to me, that's the closest I came to feeling 'at one' with any spiritual belief
- However when pressed on the issue (i.e. in Hospital or Census forms) my reply is Shamanism

I'm on the side of science, a devout atheist.

As my T-shirt said 10 years ago 'Thank God I'm an atheist'

But I will give you this bit of home-spun wisdom from comedian Charlie Chuck

"In life, you've two things to worry about - that's whether you are going to live, or going to die.
If you're going to live, You've got nowt to worry about, but if you're going to die, you've got two things to worry about.
That's whether you're going to go to Heaven or if you're going to go to Hell.
If you're going to heaven, You've got nowt to be worried about, and if you're going to the other place, you'll be that busy shakin' hands with all your mates you won't have time to worry - so what are you worrying about?"

I have long suspected - and am now thoroughly convinced - that one has to either not believe in God or one has to believe that He is thoroughly disengaged from humanity. I don’t see how, objectively looking at the world, one could conclude anything else. I believe the later. I do not believe that He is a personal God who is responsive to our prayers, hopes and aspirations. Further, I am beginning to be convinced that we do not have any sort of a pipeline to God. I think that he created us and simply said: “I gave you life now deal with it – alone.”
