Ok, I just skimmed the entire article and that made me sick. I can't believe all that crap. It is really disgusting how atheists are looked upon. I found the little section on how creation scientists tend to win creation-evolution debates rather hilarious.

I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).
