Why Praying For Paris Isn't Necessarily Useless

Posted by TheBluegrassSkeptic in The Bluegrass Skeptic, 15 November 2015 · 197 views

Why Praying For Paris Isn't Necessarily Useless I'm going to probably catch some serious flack for what I'm about to say, but bear with me. 
I'm not offended by the whole #PrayforParis bit. I have several reasons for this, all of which I think are fair enough. The first being that many folks cannot comprehend what they can do to render aid to such a large scale tragedy, let alone console those who...


Righting The Ship, I Think...

Posted by Travi in Fighting against the Cosmos, 09 November 2015 · 140 views

Righting The Ship, I Think... As it stands, my return to a workout routine has not been the best yet. Two days in now, and both have been cut short due to the need to get back into my regimen. Today came with my body deciding that it didn't want to run, so my body got weak and I had to stop, almost in a: "Nope, not doing it motherfucker!" 
Doing some research a couple days yielde...


Where I Am At Now, Compared To Where I Was At As A Christian

Posted by FlowerDemon in Into the mind of Flowerdemon, 27 October 2015 · 176 views

When I was a Christian, I:
Constantly felt guilty for the "sinful" things I kept doing, such as pre-martial sex, drinking, masturbation, etc.
Kept asking God to take away my desire to "sin" and to live in the "spirit", not the "flesh"
Distanced myself from non-believing friends and prayed for them to come to the Lord. Tried to not participate in dirty/vul...


Of Guilt And Birth Certificates

Posted by LadyNightingale in Escape Route , 20 October 2015 · 185 views

So today I once again attempted to find where my mom hid my birth certificate and SSN card. She had mentioned that she had it all together for when we would go to get my passport. I know it has to be somewhere. So, I often go hunting for it when my mom is off somewhere. I often find stuff like drawings, crafts, school assignment, papers, and progress repo...


Back To Christianity

Posted by Deidre32 in Simple Thoughts, 24 September 2015 · 611 views

Well, wasn't going to post anything about this, but because I've come to know some of you, and care about you...albeit in a virtual way...I thought I'd share this here. 
I've decided to go back to faith. Not my former faith life, that 'former' me is gone. When I deconverted from Christianity, no one could ever prepare me for the journey that would la...


A Year On Ex-Christian.net

Posted by BreathinHeathen in Bloggin' Heathen, 09 August 2015 · 375 views

Hello all!
I realized today that I have been a member of the ex-christian.net community for a little a year and felt that a blog post was required. On July 27th 2014, I came into the chatroom a frightened college student fearing whether or not Hell existed. Today, I am a much happier and find the idea of Hell to be completely fictional. I no longer hav...



Posted by Avandris in Little Blog of Doubt, 21 July 2015 · 437 views

I am going through a restless period that has lasted the better part of a few months now. There are so many things that I want to be doing with my time and yet more often than not I find myself staring idly at a computer screen, occupying my time with pointless videos or video games that feel like little more than busy work. Another day passes, I go to be...


Mr Bradlaugh

Posted by Castiel233 in Castiel233's Blog, 19 July 2015 · 366 views

Charles Bradlaugh was an English atheist of the 19th century. In fact he could perhaps be considered THE English atheist of his time. He stormed across the UK, a giant of the free thought movement. Clever, brave with a large heart and a mind as strong as steel, he caused despair and worry among the faithful. 
His knowledge of the Bible was deep and p...


Memory Lane: First Loves And Other Disasters

Posted by seven77 in Introspective Shift, 06 July 2015 · 482 views

Come with me, to visit the rambling past of an irrelevant human female.... ----------------- As a teenager, I had a tough time fitting in. I was quiet and withdrawn. I had issues being around boys due to being sexually abused for years by neighborhood boys as a child. In grade 8, my mom made me join a youth group at a church near our new home. T...


Thoughts From A Holiday.

Posted by Ellinas in Ellinas' Blog, 05 July 2015 · 435 views

Just back from a week in Poland. 90+% catholic population - I observed several times, as I wandered around in tourist mode, people kneeling in the aisles of churches, crossing themselves or dipping their fingers in a receptacle of (presumably and supposedly holy) water in order to give themselves a little wash in the general shape of a cross. That a...


New Brain Needed

Posted by GypsyMoon in Gypsy Moon's Blog, 29 June 2015 · 407 views

Anyone ever had that feeling of walking on ice or on egg shells, even when there's no reason to be feeling like that? 
I've come to the conclusion that my brain is possibly wired to deal with crisis every second of every day....  
The majority of my life has been extremely stressful and not all that pleasant, the last two weeks I've had a rather...


Fuck Homophobia

Posted by GoldenWolf in GoldenWolf's Blog, 27 June 2015 · 535 views

Fuck Homophobia Dear Homophobes, 
I am fucking sick of this world and its attitude towards anyone who isn't heterosexual or cisgendered. You spew your hatred without the consideration of others around you. Every fucking year, there's reports on an LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) suicide. You know why? Because of bigots like you! Yes, you! You know who you...


Post 19: A Happy Ending

Posted by BreathinHeathen in Dark Night of the Soul 2.0, 22 February 2015 · 689 views

I think I'm done.

When I began this journey a little over two years ago, I never would have guessed that I would have ended up at this point. I riding high in the sky with no fear of crashing anytime soon. This spiritual journey was not just an exploration on what is objectively true about the world, but a great look into who I am. I was a Christian b...


My Thoughts On Automation/ai And The Subsequent Loss Of Jobs

Posted by JadedAtheist in Yet another blog, 07 February 2015 · 685 views

Long post ahead, be ye forewarned.

I watched an interesting video recently on the effect of automation, robotics and artificial intelligence has and will have on humanity. You can view the video here . Basically, the video argues that shit will hit the fan when robots take over human jobs because we'll put the vast majority of people out of work. Most jo...


Not Doing Good

Posted by rach in Rachel Truth Seeker, 25 January 2015 · 651 views

Things are not going well at all and I am in a very depressed condition once again. In bed all day today and haven't stopped crying. The spiritual atmosphere at home is at a fervor and it is very detrimental to my fragile mental state. A-mum is preparing for the most important event of the year for her, which is a Christian religious conference, so she...


Diary Of A Food Addict: Renewal

Posted by TheBluegrassSkeptic in The Bloat, 15 January 2015 · 890 views

Diary Of A Food Addict: Renewal Can't believe it has been over a year ago since I posted on this blog last.


Well, no, not really. I've actually made a lot of progress over the last 13 months, and made some permanent life style changes that I stuck with, and don't miss at all. As I am sure most of you remember, and if you don't just check out the gallery, I used to look li...


The Mind And Belief

Posted by Storm in Storm's Blog, 03 December 2014 · 868 views

Over the past several weeks, I have been contemplating various attributes of the human mind. I have been reading research on the Psychology of Belief and researching motivated reasoning and confirmation bias. At this point, I have come to the conclusion that, much like the cosmos and our universe, the human mind is incredibly complex and, at this point, h...


I Feel I've Come A Long Way

Posted by crazyguy123 in An Ex-Christian's Progress, 03 December 2014 · 741 views

Back in February 2013, when I was still a fairly new member, I posted my deconversion testimony. It can be found here: http://www.ex-christ...n/#.VH7w7cnzjaI

I recently re-read it again and the first thing I noticed was all of the grammar errors I made. My first instinct was to rewrite the whole thing and fix every single...


The Horror Story I Told In The Chatroom

Posted by Onyx in The Black Deafness, 19 November 2014 · 826 views

Last night my friend told me his story at the bar, he was horrified, but he had to tell me. He was trekking through a forest in a Northern European country. He had a compass, a map and his backpack was filled with a tent and sleeping bag. The load weighed heavier on his back, his eyes was heavy lidded. He got more and more tired, he had to find a good pla...


Confessions: When Will My Deconversion Be Complete?

Posted by Deidre32 in Deidre's View, 23 October 2014 · 933 views


When I was a Christian, I read the book ''A Grief Observed,'' by C.S. Lewis. C.S. Lewis was once a self-proclaimed atheist, but as his life took many turns, he was drawn to Christianity. He is often quoted by many Christians, as being a poignant voice for t...
