I tried

I really did. I can't do this forever. I always suspected I'd lose in the end. I've slowly lost touch with reality. I stare at space and hours pass and I fade more each time. I have been to many doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists. They can't seem to see what I know is with me. My dark passenger. If you have no future, no past, no help, no direction, you just stop. I'm a clock with a dead battery. Frozen and unmoving is how people must see me. How can they not? Maybe I'm being selfish. Other people matter. They have their own problems. Mine are my own and so I stare again. My mum is the only reason I'm still here. She would never recover. I'm not scared of it, I welcome it. I'm scared of doing it though, even though I should. One day I will. Until then I wait. I stare.

Religious Atheism?

I see it more and more as I browse the internet and engage with theists and atheists alike. The Ken Ham wannabes who have taken it upon themselves to name atheism a religion and cry that it takes faith to 'believe' in.

I'm at a loss for words. I knew theists were incapable of critical thinking regarding their precious holy texts but this is ridiculous. The reason they are doing this, is to take away the credibility of calling it what these people actually DO believe in. How can they not see the stunning irony here? It's absolutely mind boggling. Not only are they completely undermining themselves, they are completely wrong.

As I've said before, we don't believe in anything, nor do we claim anything. We simply reject your claims because there is no evidence. That is all. Many of us accept scientific theories, such as evolution through natural selection but these are not, and never will be faith based. Sorry to ruin your party.

By the way, a scientific theory is not the same as the 'theory' definition thrown around by theists, so here it is:

A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation.

Please educate yourselves.
