Death

Death to an Atheist



In most mythologies or belief structures the main goal of its design is to assure the believer that they may physically die but that is not the end of them. There is a concept of a soul, a living soul that will never cease to be. All these beliefs systems take away fear of death and replace it with a feeling of anticipation and acceptance.



Many believers of such creative fancies believe that life, physical life, is a lesser existence, and that worldly… Continue

Can Atheists Believe In An Afterlife?

First, lets forget I asked that question because even if someone says I can't - I DON'T CARE BECAUSE I DO. But seriously, is there anybody else out there who doesn't believe in Gods but thinks there could be a different plane of existance.



I've seen a few Ghosts, mostly Family members or fallen pets and other just random people who clung to this world after death I suppose. I've never felt scared or threatend by any of them, well... one time I thought my room shaking a bit odd… Continue

This Earth is supported by billions(or trillions) of life forms or organisms. In nature, there are cycles, elements, touch, beauty, scent, reality, and crude, unaltered truth. Nature does not lie to us or deceive us. It nurtures, houses, and… Continue

Wringing Out The Dread

An acquaintance of mine recently brought her 12-year old daughter to see me and talk about the passing of the little girl's grandfather. The mother was unsure of what to say about death and the afterlife and wanted me to give her my perspective, which I thought odd due to my atheism. Nevertheless, I told her how I view death and my thoughts on what comes next. Hopefully, it gave her some comfort. Pre-teens are hard to read sometimes and don't always respond to people they don't know… Continue
