I Want To Silence The Songs And Shred The Hymnals

I Want to Silence the Songs and Shred the Hymnals

Now and then, I'll hear a Christian song or a hymn. Some of them don't bother me any longer. However, sometimes it will be a hymn I was very familiar with, one I'd sung often in church. Or I'll hear, or be reminded of lyrics from, a contemporary Christian music song (CCM). I was heavily into the CCM of th...

Do Your Best And God Will Do The Rest

Posted by zomberina in Rotting Thoughts, 15 September 2014 - - - - - - · 108 views

Do Your Best And God Will Do The Rest For many, many years, I have always found an unending fount of devilish giggles whenever I read sappy church signs. You know, the ones that are thought up by the honorary witty member of the church congregation that plays on puns, abuses homophones, and loves to dabble in sappy poetry attempts. What better way to market a deity than with comedy?

I very r...

Questions: Don't You Recognize The Evidence Of God In The Very Design Of The Universe?

Posted by illusion in illusion's Blog, 15 September 2014 - * * * * - · 102 views

There is no greater testimony for the existence of a Creator than the creation. That we exist, that anything exists, at all, cries out that God is real and that he made this world for us. If there were even the slightest difference in this universe we wouldn't exist, couldn't exist. This universe has been "fine tuned" for us to live in. This is the argume...

Everybody Is Wrong On The Internet

Posted by JadedAtheist in Yet another blog, 14 September 2014 - - - - - - · 71 views

If I spend enough time on the internet, especially if it's in the comments of a news article or perhaps on a forum; chances are I am going to read something that pisses me off. There is then this urge of wanting to tell this person off or correct them; but what I always come back to in my mind is how often do people change their point of view after arguin...

Should I Avoid These Men?

Posted by rach in Rachel Truth Seeker, 10 September 2014 - - - - - - · 114 views

I am having trouble about knowing who to establish relationships with and who to avoid. I don't like having shallow relationships with people. I'd rather have a few, sincere friends rather than a lot of shallow friends. Anyway there are a couple of men that I am on the fence about.

On the one hand, that we have a lot in common and the potential for a...

Entering The Fertility Cult

**Part of the "Reasons Why I No Longer Believe" series

Yes. YES. This is how I feel most of the time. I left Facebook once my friends started getting married and having kids ~3 years ago. At the time, I was still in the church and pretty actively so. I had temporary...

Sobriety Diary

Posted by SpiderMan in ShabbyMatty's Blog, 27 August 2014 - - - - - - · 215 views

Better part of the second day of sobriety is over. The depression and the nasty feeling in the pit of the stomach has come. The lack of appetite sucks. Excessive caffeine use just lead to more depression and anxiety.

Was gonna walk to the store to buy some headphones but chose not to because of the promise to stay sober for today which I may have vi...

Reading List

Posted by Avandris in Little Blog of Doubt, 19 August 2014 - - - - - - · 119 views

I'm going to use this entry to keep track of the books/websites/youtube channels that have been recommended to me during my time here, those I've stumbled across myself in my search, and whether I have read/listened to them. As time goes on I plan to create at least an entry for each book I read, youtube series I watch or website I visit.

If you think th...

I Am A Totally Diferent Person. And I Like It.

Posted by Storm in Storm's Blog, 14 August 2014 - - - - - - · 115 views

So back in February of this year, I stepped on a scale and noticed that I weighed more than I ever had in my life and I was not happy about it. My life was already in chaos because I had made the decision to deconvert from the faith I had followed for the vast majority of my life and I was a father to a one year old little girl. Things in my life were ver...

Home With The Familia

Posted by TexasOtaku in Ad Astra Per Aspera, Luctor et Emergo, 13 August 2014 - - - - - - · 137 views

Yesterday, my family and I made the 600 mile journey across the state of Texas (note the changed location in my profile). It took 11 hours, but the trip was uneventful. I am also home with a very happy kitty who has missed me.

For the next 4 to 6 months, I have free reign to earn my CompTIA Network+ and Security+ certifications plus work on my Japanese....

Atheism Thoughts

Posted by Orbit in Orbit's Blog, 31 July 2014 - - - - - - · 126 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.

The Girl That Shouldn't Be Here. A Rant From My Heart.

The Girl That Shouldn't Be Here

Into this world I came. Unexpected.
It was my grandpa's worst nightmare.
So bad, he told my mom to never come home pregnant.
And as you so often get what you fear most, thats what happened.
Because of the absence of love she saw no other way then to run away.
The only reason to go back home was, to give birth.
And then he...

From Christianity To Another Part 1

Posted by Cianna200 in The truth about the church and hell, 11 June 2014 - - - - - - · 288 views

Many of you have left Christianity behind and turned to atheism or something else. Some of you may have some concerns or doubts about your abandonment of Christianity like:

What if I'm wrong and their right?
What if hell is real, and what if I'm going there for leaving my Christian life
I still want to believe there is a god without being religious.

Still Trying To Get To The Bottom Of It.....

Posted by Galien in Galien's Blog, 21 May 2014 - - - - - - · 279 views

When I was a kid I liked the song JOY JOY this must surely mean, jesus first and yourself last and others in between. That resonated with my natural propensity for looking after people, so I learned early to care deeply about everyone's needs. To me this has been the focus of my life, the way I thought we were meant to live to make the world a better plac...

The Nightmare Of Discussing Feminism In General *sigh*

Posted by Thurisaz in Palace gossip from Fabled Carcosa, 11 May 2014 - - - - - - · 331 views

So alright. There's been a surge of forum threads in here recently that in one way or another dealt with feminism and/or related topics. And methinks there's some common mistakes made on both sides there... mistakes that grab a basically good discussion and toss it into the sewers. It may perhaps help if we all, should we ever touch that topic again, try...

Where I'm At Now

Posted by Deva in DevaLight's Blog, 31 March 2014 - - - - - - · 143 views

I thought I had erased my blog, but glad I didn't because its interesting reading some of it a few years later.

My little journey into Tibetan Buddhism has taken a hiatus. I haven't been over to the dharma center in over two months, and the longer I am away, the more I really don't feel like returning. I see my involvement there as escapism from a diff...

The Problem Of Free Will

In "The Case for Christianity" C.S. Lewis wrote:


Can you see the problem here? He says "God knew what would happen if they used their freedom the wrong way." According to the Bible, there was no "if." Jehovah purposed to send the redeemer before the foundation of the world. Ephesians 1:3-5 says:



Christians who don't believe that Jehovah predestined...

Kings Kaleidoscope / Art And Religion

http://www.kingsklive.com/
"What a waste of talent" was the first thought that came to my mind-Typcial cheesy christian worship lyrics but great music and vocals. I hesitated to download the free album but in the end I thought "why not". I enjoy the music and lyrics are cheesy and senseless most of the time.
Art was a long time inspired by religion. All...

Read This Blog's Jabberwocky: The Vorpal Blade Will Be Yours! ;)

Posted by Onyx in The Black Deafness, 01 March 2014 - - - - - - · 305 views

* Read some Iain Banks recently. It's Wasp Factory. Very sick, but it has a great sense of humour. Frankly, I'm looking forward to reading his Culture novels. If it's as funny as Wasp Factory, and as wonderfully written, then sign me up. Wasp Factory's very reminiscent of Ferdydurke by Witold Gombrowiscz, actually. They're both great but are pretty damn o...

The Real Reason Jesus Is Mispronounced, ...

Posted by falemon in falemon's Blog, 03 February 2014 - - - - - - · 456 views

As we all know, Jesus (oft pronounced Gheezus) is actually meant to be pronounced, Yeshua.

The reasons of this are a combination of transliteration, as well as changes in the English language. But there's something that everyone's missed out.

If a priest pronounces it as Yeshua, then the congregation will also know that christ is called Yeshua, no matte...
