Good Dream

Posted by JadedAtheist in Yet another blog, 27 January 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

Have you ever had a dream that left you in a good mood after you woke up? Well, until recently I never had. That's not to say most of my dreams leave me in a bad mood, they just leave me in a neutral mood most of a time. You see this dream was sorta unique too. In the dream I saw a good friend of mine who I see on occasion in my dreams and we were just ha...

Not Doing Good

Posted by rach in Rachel Truth Seeker, 25 January 2015 - - - - - - · 34 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...

Hmm... Not Done This Before

Posted by Ellinas in Ellinas' Blog, 25 January 2015 - - - - - - · 40 views

Never previously blogged. Not sure if it will be worth the effort or what is the purpose over and above the message boards. We'll see.

Anyhow, I'm beginning to feel like I'm in a state of permanent (if not necessarily overt) protest. I seem to be surrounded by those who expect conformity - largely religious, but also political, social - in fact it see...

Writing My Extimony - Motivated By A Forum Thread

Posted by Human in Human's Blog, 25 January 2015 - - - - - - · 39 views

The following forum thread topic is one I have found inspiring and helpful. It has allowed me to feel free in posting comments about my former experience with Christianity and Christ. On the thread, I've commented about the evolution of my thinking and my understanding during my deconversion. This is helpful now that I'm in recovery from religion. The ben...

Levels Of Acceptence

Posted by BreathinHeathen in Dark Night of the Soul 2.0, 23 January 2015 - - - - - - · 48 views

I couldn't sleep this morning, and figured I haven't made a blog post quite a while, so what the hell?

I always find myself feeling more comfortable when I return back to college after being at home with my religious family members. Being home with my dad is quiet a stressful situation. It always seems like he thinks of me as incomplete. Like something i...

Thoughts Out Of Insomnia: Phew I Needed To Get That Out..

Posted by GypsyMoon in Gypsy Moon's Blog, 21 January 2015 - * * * * * · 97 views

I So, as usual I'm awake in the middle of the night. Except this time it's somewhat ironic, I don't currently own a journal and haven't kept one for several years now, I figured a blog would fulfill the same purpose.

Thinking about my life in general currently and trying to work out where too from here. Tomorrow, or rather today now, seeing as...

You Have To Be A Die Hard Cynic To Be Religious

Posted by zomberina in Rotting Thoughts, 18 January 2015 - - - - - - · 155 views

You Have To Be A Die Hard Cynic To Be Religious Most of my mornings are filled with top 40 hits of pop music as I commute to work, kids in tow. This radio station is a clear favorite for all of us with its variety, and usually I can ignore the music and let the kids enjoy a little be bopping before going to school. Recently though, we discovered that on Sunday mornings there is a half hour of programmi...

Diary Of A Food Addict: Renewal

Posted by zomberina in The Bloat, 15 January 2015 - * * * * * · 124 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...

Diagnosis

Posted by Helvetios in Petrichor, 11 January 2015 - * * * * * · 109 views

2015 limped into existence after what was a surprisingly enjoyable New Year's Eve party at a family friend's house. I was sprawled on the couch with my sister and a boy we didn't know, champagne in hand, as we watched the countdown in Times Square on the TV. At the end of the night I braced the cold like the rest of them to light the sparklers, and as my...

Reddit, Anyone?

Posted by seven77 in Introspective Shift, 24 December 2014 - - - - - - · 200 views

I've been toying with the idea of starting a subreddit for interested parties here on ex-c. There is already an ex-christian subreddit, but it's not really anything special, imo.

Sometimes we have fun or deep discussions in chat or on threads that seem like they deserve more attention. Also, some of us are more open to exploring certain things like philo...

The Mind And Belief

Posted by Storm in Storm's Blog, 03 December 2014 - - - - - - · 292 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 - - - - - - · 233 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 - - - - - - · 256 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 - * * * * * · 308 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 - * * * * * · 258 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 - - - - - - · 248 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...

Atheism Thoughts

Posted by Orbit in Orbit's Blog, 31 July 2014 - - - - - - · 289 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.
