First Official Blog Entry! (An Epically Awesome Day!)

Posted by TexasOtaku in Ad Astra Per Aspera, Luctor et Emergo, 31 July 2014 - - - - - - · 21 views

Hi everyone!

This is my first official blog entry (I created this blog in April). I thought I would talk about the general themes of this blog.

1.) Life outside of academia.
2.) My transition out of academia (more on that later after I move back in with my folks in a couple of weeks).
3.) The beauty of having lots of control over my life for the first t...

Hatred Comes From Fear

Posted by Human in Human's Blog, 30 July 2014 - - - - - - · 17 views

This is an informal essay on the subject of why people hate.

First, this is the forum reply I posted to someone asking me to elaborate on my view.

As you say, people are taught to hate. But why? Why are they taught to hate, and why do they continue to hate? Hatred is an emotion, an intense one. All emotions are motivated by some catalyst. In this case,...

A Tale Of An Umbrella

Posted by JadedAtheist in Vivere Est Vincere, 28 July 2014 - - - - - - · 20 views

I was thinking of about this thing that happened years ago when I was in college and even today it makes me smile. I thought I'd share it since it keeps on coming to mind as of late :)

It's a short tale, so don't be too worried. Years ago when I first started out at college I would get to there early before class started and go to the library where I'd r...

Decompression

Posted by seven77 in Introspective Shift, 28 July 2014 - - - - - - · 23 views

This is not a well-thought out entry.

I'm just really pissed at myself and at other people right now. Just messaged a friend online. Got the brush off. A variation of "I'm busy and I'll try to talk/email later this week."

Fuck it. I'm through caring about people IRL. They're all a bunch of fucking liars and hypocrites. It's always "I'll make time for yo...

The Story Thus Far

Posted by Avandris in Little Blog of Doubt, 22 July 2014 - * * * * * · 112 views

I suppose it would be wise to establish just exactly where I stand before I begin chronically my journey through doubt. To do this we must go back to the very beginning; to the point at which I was first exposed to the Christian faith, no still further than that....to the family I was born into.

Both my parents were brought up in active Christia...

Un-Free This Holiday

Posted by rach in Rachel Truth Seeker, 04 July 2014 - - - - - - · 154 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.

Posted by moanareina in moanareina's Blog, 17 June 2014 - * * * * * · 325 views

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 - - - - - - · 220 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 - - - - - - · 230 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...

I Must Think Lgbt Equality Is Faith Too

http://www.ex-christ...mage1539775.gif

I don't even know what to say to this, other than it ignored my point about comparing feminism to faith. What was meant was that for some, it is like faith. They just parrot the line, and demand everyone join their bandwagon. Or else they'll go to hell (christiani...

The Nightmare Of Discussing Feminism In General *sigh*

Posted by Thurisaz in Palace gossip from Fabled Carcosa, 11 May 2014 - - - - - - · 270 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 - - - - - - · 98 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 - - - - - - · 269 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 - - - - - - · 262 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 - - - - - - · 422 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...

Nanowrimo Is Halfway Over!

Posted by zomberina in Nanowrimo - EX-C Style, 17 November 2013 - - - - - - · 399 views

Nanowrimo Is Halfway Over! Half way over, and I'm a little over halfway through. 32k words hit this past week. Yippee! I'm closing in on the finish line and feeling pretty good about it. Writing a novella has been a very rewarding, and learning, experience. Keeping sentences succinct and to the point. Better quality. Less quantity.

And I haven't updated my excerpt on this blog yet...

Death Bed Conversion Logic

Posted by roadrunner in roadrunner's Blog, 15 November 2013 - - - - - - · 509 views

The longer I spend pondering the logic of christianity, the more I find it just plain stupid. I figured i write these out every once in a while. I though about the logic of burning an upstanding family man in hell while jeffery dahmer converts in prison and gets to go to heaven.



Let's say I accept since god i...

Diary Of A Food Addict - Entry 13 - Weight Issues And Beliefs

Posted by zomberina in The Bloat, 09 November 2013 - - - - - - · 701 views

Diary Of A Food Addict - Entry 13 - Weight Issues And Beliefs I've always had a tough time with losing weight after giving birth to my third child. I attributed this struggle to several things, and I assure you these reasons having to do with age and genetics was common logic being used, not sound logic. Since deciding to try and control how I make dietary decisions, I've really started looking into every aspect tha...
