The Horror Story I Told In The Chatroom

Posted by Onyx in The Black Deafness, 19 November 2014 - - - - - - · 65 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...

Max The Cat

Posted by JadedAtheist in Yet another blog, 15 November 2014 - - - - - - · 80 views

Yesterday we noticed our cat was acting a bit funny, a little reluctant to move. This was further compounded this morning where we found him pretty much where we left him in the house. He wasn't moving much, and while eating he wasn't drinking. We took him to the vet, and we were given some antibiotics and basically told that his age combined with the fac...

Evolutionary Psychology: We Are Animals

Posted by Grevejp in Dark Night of the Soul 2.0, 13 November 2014 - - - - - - · 94 views

"Our modern skulls house a stone-age mind." -Leda Cosmides and John Tooby

It simply blows my mind how the fact that the evidence for man evolving from a common ancestor of all animals is so large, yet people dismiss it. Currently, I am taking an Evolutionary Psychology class, and I honestly think one has to be dishonest to not believe that a lot of wh...

How Religiously Based Relationships Destroy Future Generations Of Families

Posted by zomberina in Rotting Thoughts, 06 November 2014 - - - - - - · 184 views

How Religiously Based Relationships Destroy Future Generations Of Families I used to be involved with a guy that liked to point out all my flaws, offer to work on our relationship, and then would do the exact opposite. Would avoid working on the relationship and blame me, screw around with many other women, and insist it isn't fair he has to change who he is since he likes himself as is. I was the problem, not him.

What The Fucking Hell?! My Life As A Female Maid

Posted by rach in Rachel Truth Seeker, 02 November 2014 - - - - - - · 158 views

A day in the life. A day in the life it's been. As I've told you guys before, I work as a maid in people's homes. Well let me tell you about a common fucked up scenario in the life of the independent female worker. A man contacts me about working in his home. When it comes time, I give the man a call-back. To see if he is still interested in hiring...

Confessions: When Will My Deconversion Be Complete?

Posted by Deidre32 in Deidre's View, 23 October 2014 - * * * * * · 184 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...

Everything We Know About God...

Earlier today, I was having an argument with a friend of mine in my brain. Since I haven't come out with my Deconversion to anyone but you all on this site, I can only have conversations with people in my head. Crazy, right?

Well anyway, I am going to be meeting a friend of mine for lunch in the next couple weeks and I am seriously considering telling hi...

Reason #2: Why I Left My Child-Like Faith Behind

This is part 2 of my series "Why I Left Child-Like Faith Behind". Read Part 1 HERE first if you haven't already.

When we returned home, there was emptiness. The room felt empty, even though little Nikki was still there. Grandma B wasn't and I missed her terribly. I cried myself to sleep most nights. I develop...

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 - - - - - - · 163 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 - - - - - - · 146 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...

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...

Sobriety Diary

Posted by SpiderMan in ShabbyMatty's Blog, 27 August 2014 - - - - - - · 298 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...

Atheism Thoughts

Posted by Orbit in Orbit's Blog, 31 July 2014 - - - - - - · 195 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 - - - - - - · 386 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 - - - - - - · 350 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 - - - - - - · 405 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...
