    I've been boarderline atheist/agnostic for a long time. He's right when talking about there's very few of us. Growing up with a grandfather as a reverend put me on some ? that just made me question everything. I got no issue with anyone believing that there's a ? ... but the way it's influenced people in our race, it just feels like another means of control.

    It’s time to have a serious conversation about this religion thrust upon our people.

    People had religion and religious beliefs before white folks spread Christianity...

    No other institution emasculates black men more while simultaneously robbing black women of their femininity.

    All that suppressing of personal identity, then they act shocked when the choir director gets caught sucking ? in the bathroom while the pastor is ? all of the deacons' wives.

    Don't get me started on the innuendo of bowing down to a man, screaming a man's name nonstop, "letting" said man into your heart, etc. ? is disgusting.

    Taking on the religion of your oppressors is spiritual corruption for black people. Thats something conquered people do. Ive seen nothing indigenous of our ancestors in that abrahamic ? . All the while black people are conditioned to fear or not know the roots our spiritual connection.

    But go on youtube and its some white guy trying to search for Papa Machete. New Orleans been throwing Legba in folks faces for years and yall dont know thats black peoples diety.

    Bolded.....*ding ding ding*

    How blk ppl take on the religion of their slave masters is beyond stupid. Put aside all the nonsense fairy tales n stone age stories that logically make zero sense. White ppl clearly gave us that bs to keep us deaf, blind n dumb. Yet we still claim it. SMH

    @DoUwant2go2Heaven made me an atheist

    Knowledge n rational thought made me a atheist.

    Forreal tho...if I had to label myself I'd be agnostic I guess...religion, especially Christianity is based on irrational entitlement. ? created this entire universe of which we know probly 5% about but ? is over here making sure your menial ass got a bill paid. Foh....all the ? he supposedly created he ain't worried about you bruh lmao.

    I think all atheists should be labeled agnostic.

    I've been getting science involved into my reading more often and I realize that to claim "there is no ? ", one needs evidence to prove that.

    "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence"

    Stating Gods existence is unknown is the truth. It doesn't mean it exists by that thought, either. We just don't know.

    Carl Sagan told this story about a dragon in his garage

    http://www.godlessgeeks.com/LINKS/Dragon.htm

    and we have to be able to test for a ? or gods, we haven't even found life on another planet yet

    it's an unknown, so everyone should be agnostic, imo
