I am a lifelong Atheist. Never had faith and do not understand it. Sometimes I wish I had a cool de-conversion story but I do not. Recently I got together with a buddy of mine and we just got…Continue

Joshua Billingsley replied to Maruli Marulaki's discussion How To Define A Deity? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"This has been an issue I have always had a problem with. There is an Ill-definition of godhood. Christianity has one. Or three. Or 4 if you include the trixter/god of evil.  There is Mary mother of the deity who was taken in full body to…"

Joshua Billingsley commented on Bea Moore's group Western NY Atheists

Joshua Billingsley replied to Marc Draco's discussion The Elephant in the Room in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Elephant 1: It seems to me he is saying that the repression felt by blacks is bleeding over into the poor communities. The reason blacks have historically mobbed and rioted is that there was such a suppressed rage from their day to day lives that…"

Joshua Billingsley replied to FreeThinker's discussion National Guard ad with Bible
"I saw the same thing. I clicked on it and it is an ad for Chaplains needed in the National Guard. So, not AS offensive. But they are not holding a Koran or anything. Clearly religion means Christianity to the Guard. What about more psychologists,…"

Joshua Billingsley replied to Atheist Andrea's discussion What are some of your favorite rebuttals when someone questions your atheism?
"When I am confronted with them saying I am insensitive or cold due to my lack of faith I like to ask them how that is so? I am a good person, I am caring and helpful and I do it for me and not to get out of punishment later. I was raised to look out…"

Hello

Well, I guess I am getting into the whole atheist community thing. Have a blog http://blog.wnyatheist.org/ and have been working on it for a month or so. Made a web page as well but am stumped as to what people actually want from a web page. It is a lot of work but I think it is paying off.  http://wnyatheist.org/Home.php. Also trying to do a podcast. Did a couple trial runs…See More

Joshua Billingsley replied to Park Bierbower's discussion Proving a Negative Claim
"You are very correct. It should be that "you cannot prove a negative of any real magnitude." Wide open and subjective? Yeah. Just like most of language. Go ahead and try to prove that there is no gold in China. Even if you look in every…"

Joshua Billingsley replied to Prefer Not to Say's discussion Why against death penalty?
"So, maybe I am weird, but I do not think the government has the right to kill its own citizens. That seems like a reasonable rule. An individual police officer may shoot a suspect during the commission of a crime or during an escape attempt or most…"

Buffalo Atheist

I am a lifelong Atheist. Never had faith and do not understand it. Sometimes I wish I had a cool de-conversion story but I do not. Recently I got together with a buddy of mine and we just got involved in the local godless scene here in Buffalo NY. We started a blog, offensiveatheists.blogspot.com, and we are planning to get a group of the local freethinkers together in the hopes of raising enough money to go to TAM (The Amazing Meeting) in 2012. How? Idunno. We are starting now though. Any…See More

Joshua Billingsley replied to EccentricSM's discussion Amusing Responses You Got From People When You Came Out About Being An Atheist.
"I had a friend who was shocked that I was an atheist but never told me until she heard me say "Goddamn" one day. Now she says that I must believe in God because of that. Refuses to accept that the phrase just popped out. She just walks…"

Joshua Billingsley replied to Travis Brummett's discussion What do you believe in?
"Well, I guess I believe in the idea that people are trying to do what is right. Some people think it is to make money to show standing in the world, or save trees, or cleanse the gene pool, or whatever. They may be misguided or crazy or have a huge…"

Hello Joshua, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where we recognise--as freethinking atheists do--that gods are phoney and religion is used so much to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 270 discussion topics. We invite you to join us.
