"Well the people I was talking about in my first post are the sort of people who think they are cool by listening to their "hardcore" music and skate boarding every where. I think they pretend to not believe because they think its cool…"

"Depends upon where you live, I suppose. I don't know how religious Australia is nowadays; it never struck me as a particularly devout country. You could certainly not be 'cool' here on the other side of the world simply by being an…"

William Arnold replied to Grace Fitzpatrick's discussion How do you explain evolution to a theist?
"I find it extremely difficult to understand how some one can reject such a supported theory in the first place. But I think explaining as a survival of the fittest will work. E.g: Two dogs are born one has stronger legs etc than the other. The…"

"I guess you could look at it like that. I feel very safe about my atheism at my school. My close group of friends are very open minded or they just don't give a damn about any of it. I even argue and question the things they tell us in…"

People see "not believing" as cool?

It often bothers me in my school when people (not the sort of people I like to associate with) claim to be an atheist or "non-believer" yet they continue to sing the school hymns and say the prayers when asked. Also when some people who say they are atheists then they go a head and blame god for some thing; such as creating a creature in a certain way.I stopped sings the hymns ages ago.

Hello William, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where freethinking atheists like you recognise that gods are phoney and religion is a fraud used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.
