Atheism is a faith, just like bald is a hair colour.
I had a burning bush in my living room once. I fell to my knees in divine grace. But then I realized that I had actually just set the ficus on fire. The only divine intervention I got from that was that the landlord didn't throw me out. -Someone on LiveJournal
I agree, life must have a designer, God, and invisible fairies are what push us down to keep us from floating away from our flat Earth. Newtonist scientists just want to keep out all these great theories about fairies not letting us float away simply because there isn't "evidence" and that Ockhand's Razor Blade or whatever. I mean, I'm not floating away, it must be fairies! Science can't explain that! Did you know Newtonism leads to Nazism? Hitler believed in gravity. -Someone on Gaia
In the beginning was the word, and the word was "Arrrrr!" -Piraticus 13:7
Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear. -Thomas Jefferson

Greetings, wisp! Your profile style is creative. I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
