I guess I am a second generation atheist as my father was an atheist.  Even though I attended Sunday school a few times when I was very young (where I colored pictures of Jesus), I was not made aware of the concept of god (as the all-creator) until I was 11 years old.  I rejected the idea as nonsensical immediately.  My life has not been terrible and although my childhood may have been somewhat dysfunctional, I am loved and respected by many that know me.  I also like myself and give of myself to help others.  My site can attest to that.  The profanity on my site is there to make the statement loud and clear that I do not fear retribution from any gods because obviously I know there aren't any.  Once again, anything said in the context of god being real is mere nonsense.

I am appalled by your website and feel it should be banished from public eyes.It is a disgrace to the human race and in direct blasphemy of our Creator.
 I don't know what terrible things have happened to you in your life to make you feel like you can not put your trust in our God, but you have been so misdirected to what is good and right in your life. I pray that your eyes will be opened to see that God loves you very much and He wants to bless with peace, joy, and most importantly love. I have the feeling that you have experienced a life of dysfunction from childhood and was never given the opportunity to experience the love of God. If you would give Him the opportunity he can set you free from your overwhelming sense of hatred. You must not like yourself very much, and if you can't love yourself then you will be incapable of loving anyone else! But God can show you how to love and how to feel love if you would give him a chance.Please don't rebel against Him for his wrath will come upon you, not when He can fill your heart with love, peace, and joy. Wouldn't you like to have peace in your life, to feel real love, and have insatiable joy? I pray that soon you will give to God what belongs to Him, and that is your heart and learn to love others as His Son, Jesus loved and died for us all. That includes you! I don't believe you hate God, not really, I think for what ever reason you are afraid of him and you are letting that fear overtake you. God did not give us spirit of fear but of power, love , and a sound mind. Wouldn't you like to experience these things? If you choose not to believe in God it does not change the fact  that He is our creator and we live to the Lord and we die to the Lord. So whether we or die, we belong to the Lord.  Romans 14:8
