    You might find it to absurd to believe certain things but I don't blame you because of how we have used such words for all these years. Words such as magical.

    Can you provide answers, supported by evidence, to any of those questions? Didn't think so.

    Atheism is only the rejection of the claim that a god(s) exist. It doesn't make any claims.

    Having said that, saying that you don't know, rather than making-up an explanation, isn't bad, is it?!

    Here are my answers, but other Atheists will have different opinions.
    (Original post by Dragon5555)
    - What were you before birth?
    I have no reason to believe that I existed before my brain developed sufficiently to be self-aware.

    - Why were you born?
    Sex.

    - Why are you living?
    I think, therefore I am.

    - Why will you die?
    My body will deteriorate to a point where it cannot be alive.

    - What happens to you after death?
    I have no reason to believe that it will be any different to how it was before I was alive.

    - Why atheism?
    Because there're no credible evidence for any of the myriad of deist claims.

    - Atheist sees house on fire.
    Atheist does something, which may include calling the fire brigade.

    Would you pray?

    A foetus. Did you take biology GCSE?

    - Why were you born?
    Atheist: I don't know.
    Because my parents had sex.

    - Why are you living?
    Atheist: I don't know.
    I am living simply because my parents had sex, formed me and I was born. Your question assumes some objective, external meaning to life which there is no evidence for.

    - Why will you die?
    Atheist: I don't know.
    Why will we die? Well either old age, an illness, an accident, suicide or murder.

    - What happens to you after death?
    Atheist: i don't know.
    Atheists will not reply in such a manner because we do know what happens: our bodies decompose. I assume you're referring to a soul, but again, there is no evidence for one.

    - Why atheism?
    Atheist: Because i know everything all praise God/Allah.
    Because there is not a shred of evidence for a deity of any kind.

    - Atheist sees house on fire.
    Atheist: Oh my God!
    What is a phrase like this meant to prove? Saying "Oh my God" no more proves someone's a theist than saying "bless you" proves you have the power to sanctify someone's that's just sneezed.

    - What were you before birth?
    Atheist: A little foetus
    - Why were you born?
    Atheist: Because of an accident probably
    - Why are you living?
    Atheist: Because of a complex series of chemical reactions
    - Why will you die?
    Atheist: Because at some point that complex series will be corrupted or interrupted significantly enough to prevent the entire system from working
    - What happens to you after death?
    Atheist: I'll probably be cremated, I dunno, that's like 60-70 years in the future
    - Why atheism?
    Atheist: That's like asking "Why darkness?", if you start completely from scratch then it just is. Every religion that is started from the ground up will be different, but atheism will always stay the same.

    - What were you before birth?
    A fetus
    - Why were you born?
    Because after 9 months my mum's womb started contracting...
    - Why are you living?
    Parents had sex
    - Why will you die?
    Could be due to a disease, heart faliure, car crash. I can't tell the future and I'm pretty sure you can't either.
    - What happens to you after death?
    Depends on what my next of kin wants. I could be cremated or burried (In which case I will rot underground for several years)
    - Why atheism?
    Because nobody tells me how to live my life and if God didn't care to prove him/herself to me, I don't feel like I should be bothered to prove myself worthy of the 'afterlife'

    - What were you before birth?
    I was a bunch of cells split between my dads' sperm inside his testicles and the eggs developing in my mother's ovaries.
    (Original post by Dragon5555)
    - Why were you born?
    Because Dad penetrated Mum's Vagina with his penis and then after much friction, aka sex between the two. Ejaculated his sperm into her. Which lead to Mum then carrying me to term for nine months. Before I made my debuit into the world by putting her through over 48 hours of labour.

    - Why are you living?
    Because I haven't died yet. Well unless I am a Zombie but then you will never know Mwhahahaha (braaaiiiiiiiinsssssssssss).

    (Original post by Dragon5555)
    - Why will you die?
    Because my luck ran out causing me to do so. Either because of old age, natural disaster, illness, on coming traffic, laughing too much, running out of brains etc.
    (braaaiiiiiiiinsssssssssss).


    (Original post by Dragon5555)
    - What happens to you after death?
    Physically I rot worms and all. Unless I get cremated in which case I will become ash and then maybe fertilize a tree. Everything else your guess is as good as mine and no. Believing in a God or multiple gods and goddesses yourself does not mean you have a better idea than the rest of us.


    (Original post by Dragon5555)
    - Why atheism?
    Because I am not religious and thus the internet said so.

    Not unless screaming like a banshee in shock. Somehow translates to this. I haven't been in a fire but I have been in a couple of situations where I thought I was about to get seriously hurt or die. With no way to stop it. I didn't but still. Or have I? (braaaiiiiiiiinsssssssssss).

    That's why I'm no longer an Atheist.

    There has to be a creator otherwise everything in life is simply meaningless, and there is no point in doing anything.

    "To sustain the belief that there is no God atheism has to demonstrate infinite knowledge which is tantamount to saying I have infinte knowledge that there is no being in existence with infinite knowledge" Atheism is a false concept
