Why One Size Won't Fit All Atheists

Posted by DefyingGravity in DefyingGravity's Blog, 01 March 2015 · 56 views

Since I have joined this site and started talking to more ex-Christian atheists, I've come to realize that there are varying opinions and beliefs within the atheist community. I know it's kind of stupid to say, but it's been pretty surprising. And I think a lot of theists, especially Christians, would find it shocking. Why? I think society has presented a...

When Atheist Lovers Collide

Posted by zomberina in Rotting Thoughts, 26 February 2015 · 107 views

When Atheist Lovers Collide "Anyone who believes in that shit is an idiot. Feeble minded and stupid."

Man, that is pretty harsh an assessment of those who believe in religion, isn't it? It's even harder to hear when you don't share the same attitude towards theists. Worse? What if that was your lover talking to you? These type of atheist attitudes can be difficult in a relationship...

Post 19: A Happy Ending

Posted by BreathinHeathen in Dark Night of the Soul 2.0, 22 February 2015 · 94 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...

Church

Posted by Helvetios in Petrichor, 22 February 2015 · 80 views

It's been waaaaay too long since I updated this thing. I did post this thread a little while back. I still don't know what to do about telling my parents, but other posters had some good advice.

Two weeks ago I went to church for the last time. I felt so alienated. I posted status updates from church to share the "good news" with the rest of exc. It wa...

The Moral Amazement...

Posted by Ellinas in Ellinas' Blog, 22 February 2015 · 97 views

Morality.

There are those who maintain that without the absolute standard of the religion they follow, no morality is possible. There are those who maintain that they have a perfectly good moral standard and standing with no religious outlook. It's a word that gets bandied around to no particularly good effect, with endless and sometimes vitriolic debate...

To Run, Or Not To Run

Posted by GypsyMoon in Gypsy Moon's Blog, 09 February 2015 · 159 views

I guess the title of this entry says it all really.

I have a tendency to run from positive relationships, and I'm trying to break that habit. My biggest issue right now is that I feel numb, as in, I cannot feel my emotions, whether I care deeply for someone, love them, or simply feel deep respect for them. The only exception to this is my child...

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

Posted by JadedAtheist in Yet another blog, 07 February 2015 · 138 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 · 173 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 zomberina in The Bloat, 15 January 2015 · 231 views

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

SHAME ON ME!

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...

Reddit, Anyone?

Posted by seven77 in Introspective Shift, 24 December 2014 · 282 views

I've been toying with the idea of starting a subreddit for interested parties here on ex-c. There is already an ex-christian subreddit, but it's not really anything special, imo.

Sometimes we have fun or deep discussions in chat or on threads that seem like they deserve more attention. Also, some of us are more open to exploring certain things like philo...

The Mind And Belief

Posted by Storm in Storm's Blog, 03 December 2014 · 352 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 · 280 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 · 331 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 · 376 views

http://lorilaradotco...in-the-dump.jpg


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...

Buddhism

I will be attending a session, talk, transmission, or whatever you want to call it, by my Tibetan teacher this weekend. It is on the preliminary practice of Tibetan Buddhism according to the Nyigma Dudjom Tersar Ngondro practice, and more specifically, guru yoga.
I know he is going to give a transmission of the section. This is an authorization to do the...

'its Not Like That In Europe...'

Posted by Avandris in Little Blog of Doubt, 11 October 2014 · 309 views

I find myself increasingly frustrated by the sentiment that living in Europe makes 'coming out' as an atheist easy, that I should consider myself lucky to be in a country that is so accepting of the atheistic position.

While I would agree that, in comparison to the United States, Christianity is not so all prevailing here. It is more acceptable to be an...

Episode 3 - Which Type Are You?

An illustration by Joas Adiprasetya

In a voyage, a man fell into the sea. Unfortunately, that poor man cannot swim so he yell for help. Luckily, some people in the ship are willing to help him. However, each of those persons has a different background:
The first person is a moralist. He take a book "how to swim" and throw it near that drowning person....

Logical Fallacies: Argument From Ignorance

Posted by illusion in illusion's Blog, 08 October 2014 · 299 views

During my deconversion process, I had given up the idea that the Bible was without error. There was contradictions, not just within the text itself, but within the content, as well. Claiming the Bible was inerrant, became increasingly difficult for me to accept. I came to the decision that God did not pass along a perfect document, but maybe there was sti...

Booooooo :\

These past couple of weeks have been weird. On top of some mild friction with my folks (which happens no matter how well you get along), I have grown increasingly impatient with my vision. For those of you new to the site and who don't know me very well, I have had vision trouble since I was a wee lad. While...

Atheism Thoughts

Posted by Orbit in Orbit's Blog, 31 July 2014 · 331 views

I joined American Atheists yesterday to support their legal work on the separation of church and state in the US. I'm still not comfortable with telling strangers or acquaintances who ask that I'm atheist, though. Well, that's the blog entry; I'm new to this and don't have much to say.
