Gardening is almost Biblical at harvest time. The ultimate satisfaction of its caretaker is the goal. Beauty is never enough.

How Does Your Life Have Any Meaning?

Posted by illusion in illusion's Blog, 26 August 2014 - - - - - - · 87 views

All things end. It's true. You will die. Your kids will die. Their kids will die. All life, eventually dies. Even our Earth will die, and our solar system, and even, one day, our universe. As they say, all good things, eventually, will come to an end. I don't know if anything exists beyond our universe, or if anything will continue to exists after our uni...

Skeptical (A Pre-Deconversion Novella): Ch. 1 - Caleb's Cancer

Posted by seven77 in Introspective Shift, 26 August 2014 - - - - - - · 34 views

****I wrote the following around the time I quit attending church. Not sure links still work and I admit there may be flaws in my calculations. Very long and verbose.****

This is a story, an example of probability, possibility and the delusions that many believe.

There is a family that goes to the church that I sometimes attend. I...

How do you discern what is to be a blog and what is to be a thread?

Message To My Younger Self

Posted by Human in Human's Blog, 21 August 2014 - - - - - - · 73 views

A question came up on the Ex-Christian Life forum. This is it:

If You Could Go Back In Time And Tell Your Christian Self You Deconverted, Would You?

I took it a step further, as you can read in my answer that follows. Here is my response:

I already did travel back in time to tell myself. But I had to go all the way back to my childhood and plant the se...

Reading List

Posted by Avandris in Little Blog of Doubt, 19 August 2014 - - - - - - · 76 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.

Delayed Gratification

Posted by JadedAtheist in Yet another blog, 18 August 2014 - - - - - - · 59 views

So, firstly you may have noticed that I changed the name of my blog. This is a temporary name till I think of a cool one. I changed it to this as the Latin one was starting to feel too pretentious for me to bare. Still throwing ideas around, I'm sure I'll find something.

Anyways, on to the content of my post. I was reading something of Sapolsky's quite a...

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

Posted by Storm in Storm's Blog, 14 August 2014 - - - - - - · 81 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 - - - - - - · 101 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....

Over The Borderline

Posted by ninurta in Babylonian Dream's Blog, 05 August 2014 - - - - - - · 71 views

What is it like to be a male living with PTSD and Borderline Personality Disorder? How about if you ad Bipolar into the mix to make things a little more interesting. What results is a person struggling to find some kind of emotional stability, with a brain that doesn't know what that means. Most of the time, I feel nothing, at other times I feel so intens...

Atheism Thoughts

Posted by Orbit in Orbit's Blog, 31 July 2014 - - - - - - · 97 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.

Un-Free This Holiday

Posted by rach in Rachel Truth Seeker, 04 July 2014 - - - - - - · 193 views

It's holiday in America today this is Independence Day and it's all about celebrating the cut off of America from Britain a very long time ago. I've heard fireworks going for two days now in fact I hear some now just out my window. I really don't observe this holiday. I'm certainly not a red,white and blue Yankee and I've never waved a stars and stripes...

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 - - - - - - · 250 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 - - - - - - · 250 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 - - - - - - · 297 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 - - - - - - · 112 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

Posted by Ralet in Ralet's Blog, 18 March 2014 - - - - - - · 296 views

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 - - - - - - · 280 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...
