Confessions: When Will My Deconversion Be Complete?

Posted by Deidre32 in Deidre's View, 23 October 2014 - - - - - - · 13 views

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...

To Come Out Or Not To Come Out...?

After reading this essay, please consider leaving a comment or an upvote. Thanks.

To Come Out or Not To Come Out...?

Is that the question? The ultimate question? Does being Ex-Christian mean that we are required or obliged to make it known publicly? Or to anyone at all? Is "coming out" really necessary? And is it always a good thing when we do come out...

Everything We Know About God...

Posted by Storm in Storm's Blog, 22 October 2014 - * * * * * · 52 views

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...

I am currently happy with life. I finally am out of the cloud of depression. I can finally see clearly. I'm being optimistic again, I'm not having suicidal thoughts, and I have...

Today's Workout

Posted by JadedAtheist in Yet another blog, 19 October 2014 - - - - - - · 42 views

So I started my workout today, it's official. I got some basic gym workout stuff the other day and put it all in what is now I guess you can call my "workout room". Here's a glimpse:



I have somewhat improvised with some of the things in there. For example, the table there is used as a stand for my lappy so I can listen to tunes and check up on things...

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...

Preaching On Social Media

Posted by zomberina in Rotting Thoughts, 16 October 2014 - - - - - - · 111 views

Preaching On Social Media We've all been there at some point. You log onto your favorite social media website like Facebook, and as you scroll through the many status updates in your news feed with highlights about your Aunt Martha's cat, or your friend's son that lost a tooth, you see this:







If you are irreligious like myself, all you see is this:

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 - - - - - - · 126 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 - - - - - - · 101 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...

A Troubled Man Likes Me?

Posted by rach in Rachel Truth Seeker, 02 October 2014 - - - - - - · 113 views

So I slowly find out about a crush that a severely emotionally troubled man might have on me. This is a man I mean, in regular life I mean not on the internet. And I have absolutely no problem with "emotionally troubled" individuals because I know myself to be the most emotionally troubled person I've ever met. But the difference between me and this gu...

Sobriety Diary

Posted by SpiderMan in ShabbyMatty's Blog, 27 August 2014 - - - - - - · 270 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 - - - - - - · 170 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 - - - - - - · 347 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 - - - - - - · 326 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 - - - - - - · 379 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...

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...
