    That's a good question WebCyan.

    To a point.

    Belief in 'some way or another' is a common theme in all music.

    Whether it's a religion you observe, one you despise, or one you are unsure of. Or, maybe you just don't give a shit.

    All are viable paths IMO.

    As long as despise doesn't turn to hate, and doubt to blind faith.

    I'm 'athiest' I guess, as much as I hate labels. But, you can call me athiest.

    I write songs sure, I can't say they are based on this mystical thing called 'atheism'.

    Why are you wondering? That's a tough question to answer.

    i kinda don't see the point! i mean as an aethiest, i don't feel the need to strengthen my belief in aethism by writing songs about it, kinda like a strength in silence attitude....but i have to tell you i saw this thread title and just had to laugh... very nice ..hehehe

    good point buck62.'

    Emeric, that sounded more like a poem than anything.

    I wouldnt call myslef atheist. I used to be a die-hard christian, but after really examining the viability of somthing like that I've come to the conclusion that theres a chance its all not true.

    Although...I guess I could lean either way given appropriate evidence.

    Personally I can't stand musicians who write "Christian" songs. They get in a rut of not caring how the music sounds but instead focus only on the "message". They figure that if they have a good message then the music doesn't matter...

    There are a few "Christian" groups that are musically good/great. Jars of CLay are decent. DC Talk had a good song with "Jesus Freak". Earthsuit, Sarah Brightman are ok. And POD is actually pretty good if youre into that whole nu-metal thing(which I am.).

    But for the most part Christian groups are quite boring...

    Well, enough ranting for one night. I think I'll go pop in my Marilyn Manson CD.

    The whole concept of religious songs is retarded....

    In my never- to- be- humble opinion, I think that music is music and should be kept in it's regular catoloque.....

    I don't care if your singing about the lord "saving you", or If your singing about bangin' some dirty broads......

    A Rock song is a Rock song...

    A Rap song is a Rap song

    A Country song is a Country song.......

    If we had to have a label for every message a song is carrying, imagine what your local tower records would look like.....

    There would be a love song, christian song, hate song, scorned love song, rapping about gangsters section.......

    Retarded.

    Im atheist(thou i hate lables) the only problem is when you tell someone they say "what, your a devil worshipper". And then i get defensive and say rude/crude things about "their" god. It's really a bunch of bullshit, i would op to be satanist anyday over christian or catholic or jahoba. Right now we are at war because of relgion......plain and simple.I am my own god.

    I think you shouldn't be superficial about writing "christian" songs. People get tired of hearing the same theme over and over again... "god is good.. god is good.. god is good"

    I got a song that is not a "christian song" but it clearly shows that I believe. "I know"

    My point is: If your a songwriter, you write about life (atheist or not). If life just happens to come across some religion... so be it.. put it in the song.

    I got family members that won't listen to Stairway...because it says "and she's buying a stairway to heaven"... What?!?!? those kind of people are superficial...

    I think if a song doesn't mention god... it doesn't mean anything good nor bad, and if our lyrics take it for granted that there is a god, most people wouldn't even notice (and usually those who WOULD call it blasphemy)
