It's pretty obvious in my past that I truly have been highly offended by Atheists attacking my religion. I do apologize for my harshness. For the past year, events have taken place in my life (don't say what) that have led me to become skeptical and disbelieving. My family thinks I am just too busy with school to attend church anymore when in fact I have no desire in going. If there was a guy, why do things that scar you for life happen? My boyfriend now said that God uses us as pawns and laughs at us suffering. We were both raised in the church and because of family issues and our parents claiming to be Christians yet being terrible, we have tried to figure out what to believe. All groups (especially Atheists) are welcome. I would like some opinions that are MATURE. And I don't mean 'Jesus loves you' crap.

I'm not seeing the question in this post. Can you rephrase what you're asking?

1. I respect you're opinion. 2. In my opinion, God watches over us and does not use us as pawns and laughs at our suffering.

Absolutely. I am trying to see the different options in a more mature manner than hearing people argue over the existence of God. I obviously know that is a difference. But I want to see the more important changes you go through when you go from believing in God to not. Because I am undecided since I am not sure of the details. I guess the basic question would be, what are the serious believes you express when saying, I am an atheist?"

Well, in all honestly, I went through some difficult times living with my mother and the numerous men she dated when I was going through childhood and adolescence. I had been strictly Catholic until, really, around September last year. I didn't understand why God was putting me through these things where I could be so many other places. I wasn't in a good place. Mindset, mood, home. It all sucked. I was that kid in the back of the classroom that didn't talk to anyone or really did anything there. In December, shortly after I turned 15, I was moved from that household and into my dad's. My life is better now, of course, but I don't think I'm ever going to be able to get past what had happened. It wasn't a good part of my life, you know? I think about religion all the time. I don't understand that out of all the planets, known and unknown, in the vast universe, how people on earth can think that they are deserving of something better after death. To me it comes off as pretentious. Hell, if I wanted to and had the power to, I could right a book declaring myself as god and burn the world to the ground, leaving only my magical book behind. People would find it and use it, right? Not exactly what I'm trying to get across, but more or less the easily explained version of it. More like, if the world ended and then started up again, the tale of religion would never be the same. Sure, there might be similarities, but overall it will not be at all alike. I think people just want to know that no matter how much they fail at being a good person, there's a chance they might get to do it again. No one knows. I don't believe there's a god, just as religious people believe there is. Neither of us can be proven wrong. It's stupid to try to tell someone that they are wrong. It's a waste of energy, because all they come off as is incompetent and stupid.

I couldnt say I agree with your boyfriend. God uses tradegy to test us....or to wake us up from our sin, or to keep something in store for a greater cause.

Well, I am an Atheist, and that's just because I follow logic and science. I was raised in a Christian school - even though my mom is an Atheist too - so I had to decide for myself. It's okay to go against your parents as long as it's what you truly believe in. The question is if you follow logic. Atheism is basically logic-and-science-based.

Didn't you see what she said? She doesn't want a debate whether "God" is real or not.
