Ignosticism The First

Posted by BarbarousBill in i want mead, 12 January 2016 · 272 views

What is Ignosticism? Well as it turns out that's a mildly ironic question.  So there's Atheism, which is non-belief and/or positive reinforcement of the proposition that there is no deity/ies.  Then there's Agnosticism, which is certainty that there is no evidence for or against deity/ies, with two common variants being a strong and weak Agnos...

Belated Thoughts About 2015

Posted by knightcore in This and That, 06 January 2016 · 281 views

I finally figured out how blog posts work, so I guess I'll start it off with an introspective post about my past year. 2014 was really hopeless for me, I had to drop out of school completely and was pushing towards saving up so I could move out of my parents house. I'm not out to my parents, and I don't mean religiously, they know about that. I mean...

Studying The Tape

Posted by Travi in Fighting against the Cosmos, 03 January 2016 · 252 views

Did the obligatory reminiscence yesterday afternoon while I tried to sleep and realized how uneventful 2015 was outside of a few major events. I essentially tried to break out of my introvert shell on a couple occasions, meeting with mixed results. A lot of it depended on context of event and when and where it took place. January: I rang in 2015 alon...

Relaxation And Realizations

Posted by seven77 in Introspective Shift, 29 December 2015 · 205 views

During my hiatus I've begun to regularly consume a certain herb of questionable legal status. I was sitting in the storage area underneath my residence, smoking a bowl in the dimly lit area with only my new puppy for company. I had some chill EDM tunes playing on my phone. It was a quiet night on the plains, a little chilly in the unheated underbelly of a...

Sexy Sadie: The Embodiment Of Religious Betrayal

Posted by BreathinHeathen in Bloggin' Heathen, 29 December 2015 · 188 views

Recently, The Beatles were added to all major streaming websites (example: Spotify) which gives me the perfect excuse to write this. Coming in as track 22 on the famous White Album is the song Sexy Sadie. This number written by John Lennon is one we might relate to quite well. Before the making of the White Album, the band went on a trip to India to atten...

Not Been Around Much...

Posted by Ellinas in Ellinas' Blog, 23 December 2015 · 182 views

...combination of factors. Other things have intruded, I've been ill with a chest infection (hardly used a computer or did anything else much for 2 weeks) and have since done some major computer surgery which has banished Windows from my laptop in favour of Linux Mint (not difficult but time consuming - though very happy with the results). 
Anyhow,...

Love From The Inside ...out

Posted by Deidre in Simple Thoughts, 08 December 2015 · 331 views

“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.”
Maya Angelou  http://www.doctorlis.../heart_tree.gif  Once upon a time, there was a girl who stopped believing in love. She was cynical about marriage, and thought that it was everyone’s problem, but her own. She and her father had so many problems...

Of Guilt And Birth Certificates

Posted by LadyNightingale in Escape Route , 20 October 2015 · 324 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...

Frustrated

Posted by Avandris in Little Blog of Doubt, 21 July 2015 · 584 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 · 461 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...

New Brain Needed

Posted by GypsyMoon in Gypsy Moon's Blog, 29 June 2015 · 503 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 · 685 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 · 867 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 · 825 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 · 788 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 · 1,106 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...

The Mind And Belief

Posted by Storm in Storm's Blog, 03 December 2014 · 1,032 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 · 867 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 · 970 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...
