Frustrated

Posted by Avandris in Little Blog of Doubt, 21 July 2015 · 106 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...

Pastor Jeffress: Jesus Wasn't A Law Breaking Hippy, Condemns Fellow Churches

Posted by TheBluegrassSkeptic in The Bluegrass Skeptic, 21 July 2015 · 107 views

Pastor Jeffress: Jesus Wasn't A Law Breaking Hippy, Condemns Fellow Churches I normally make an effort to go out of my way to avoid any news stories coming out of FOX news. I also do what I can to not bother responding to any discussion panels either. There is one draw that will get my attention, and keep it, in a FOX news article. Pastors, politics, and biblical scripture. The discussion in question today had all three, and I jus...

Mr Bradlaugh

Posted by Castiel233 in Castiel233's Blog, 19 July 2015 · 117 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...

Memory Lane: First Loves And Other Disasters

Posted by seven77 in Introspective Shift, 06 July 2015 · 272 views

Come with me, to visit the rambling past of an irrelevant human female.... ----------------- As a teenager, I had a tough time fitting in. I was quiet and withdrawn. I had issues being around boys due to being sexually abused for years by neighborhood boys as a child. In grade 8, my mom made me join a youth group at a church near our new home. T...

Thoughts From A Holiday.

Posted by Ellinas in Ellinas' Blog, 05 July 2015 · 252 views

Just back from a week in Poland. 90+% catholic population - I observed several times, as I wandered around in tourist mode, people kneeling in the aisles of churches, crossing themselves or dipping their fingers in a receptacle of (presumably and supposedly holy) water in order to give themselves a little wash in the general shape of a cross. That a...

New Brain Needed

Posted by GypsyMoon in Gypsy Moon's Blog, 29 June 2015 · 252 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 · 305 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...

Ignorance Is Bliss

http://wp.production...urage.jpg?w=300


Posted this elsewhere recently, and wanted to share it here.

I never really understood that saying, until I left Christianity four years ago. Ignorance is bliss . It can be. When you are a young child indoctrinated into a particular faith, especially an Abrahamic...

Post 19: A Happy Ending

Posted by BreathinHeathen in Dark Night of the Soul 2.0, 22 February 2015 · 436 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 · 441 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 · 451 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 · 601 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 · 655 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 · 530 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 · 604 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...

Confessions: When Will My Deconversion Be Complete?

Posted by Deidre32 in Deidre's View, 23 October 2014 · 660 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...

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...

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 · 487 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...

Booooooo :\

Yargh, it's another blog entry for venting...

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...
