OK, I don't really think I'm the GOD that everyone talks about all the time... Although I have no proof to say I am not, and likewise, no proof to say I am. This truth isn't much different from the god that all Christian's believe in and pray too (or any other religion for that matter). Organized religions are all based on blind faith that people invented to control other people. If a holy figure head (pope, priest, rabbi, etc.) says "God says you must do this..." all the people believe it for some reason and obey. It's amazing that a religion of any kind has lasted any length of time at all. That doesn't say much for the general intelligence of humanity.
"You're a heathen! You're an evil Satanist!" you say? No, not quite. I may be a heathen but not a Satanist. Satanism is just another one of those religions much like Christianity or Judaism. Why don't you read my Rantings and find out what I'm really all about.

Want more information on what atheism is all about? The Atheism Web has lots of great information in a Q&A format. It tells more about what atheism is and is not. DOuG...
I'm not alone in my thinking; not that I care much since I was an atheist before I even knew there was a word for what I believe (or rather, disbelieve). Here are some of my favorite quotes from famous atheists:
"Just in terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There's a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning."
-- Bill Gates
"It's human nature to need a religious crutch, and I don't begrudge anyone that. I just don't need one."
-- Janeane Garofalo (Actress/Comedian)
