It's Not The Hatfields And The Mccoys...but It's Pretty Close

Posted by TheBluegrassSkeptic in The Bluegrass Skeptic, 02 July 2015 · 59 views

It's Not The Hatfields And The Mccoys...but It's Pretty Close You know, I love mug shots where the perps have big grins on their faces. Specifically, the cat ate the canary kind of look. This week’s headlines managed to present one that couldn’t be missed, and dare I say, I think there are even twinkles in the eyes of these men. In the mug shot, you see three of six men who took it upon themselves to heckle Joel Os...

New Brain Needed

Posted by GypsyMoon in Gypsy Moon's Blog, 29 June 2015 · 91 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 · 125 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...

Dead Inside

Posted by seven77 in Introspective Shift, 11 June 2015 · 217 views

"The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside
The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside

Here come the world, with the look in its eye
Future uncertain, but certainly slight
Look at the faces, listen to the bells
It's hard to believe we need a place called hell, place called hell" -- lyrics fr...

Satisfaction

Posted by Ellinas in Ellinas' Blog, 31 May 2015 · 190 views

I live. I search. What I thought yesterday may differ from what I think tomorrow. The key is to question, to consider, to develop.

To those who seek their own way, oblivious of the censure of others and the conformist pressure of consensus reality - I would say that is good. But with every proverbial blessing, perhaps, comes a proverbial curse.

It seems...

What The Hell Am I Doing Here? I Don't Belong Here...

Posted by RockChick in The Heart & Soul, 06 May 2015 · 393 views

As many of you can see, I've changed my name from DefyingGravity to TheCreep. I no longer feel like I can defy gravity anymore.
Today I cried in the bathroom at lunch and ruined my entire smokey eye look that I took 15 minutes to create in the morning. It was a disaster, I had to fix the entire thing and wait until my eyes stopped being this bright red co...

Ignorance Is Bliss

Posted by Deidre32 in Simple Thoughts, 12 April 2015 · 430 views

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...

The Damage The Faith Does

Posted by Castiel233 in Castiel233's Blog, 15 March 2015 · 373 views

In the early 90's I had the first of my nervous breakdowns. My mind was racing with out of control thoughts.....I was so ill and less than 24 hours after my first symptoms developed, I found myself in the care of the local mental health hospital and my medicated lead recovery was slow and painful. I remember being taken to the local village by a member o...

Post 19: A Happy Ending

Posted by BreathinHeathen in Dark Night of the Soul 2.0, 22 February 2015 · 380 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 · 381 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 · 413 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 · 537 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 · 612 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 · 484 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 · 566 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 · 612 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...

'its Not Like That In Europe...'

Posted by Avandris in Little Blog of Doubt, 11 October 2014 · 551 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 · 455 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...
