"Monsters cannot be announced. One cannot say: 'here are our monsters', without immediately turning the monsters into pets." (Derrida, 1989)
HumanI read his concept of deconstructionism. The inherent flaw of Idealism, leading to a sort of unreality, wherein an idea or a thing cannot be known -- perhaps cannot even exist -- without its opposite or contrast to give it meaning. Applied to religion, Christianity thrives on its inherent dualism, its inherent self-conflict.

Was doing so good with keeping an eye on the food I eat, but I downed a whole pizza last night. I suck.
FreeThinkerNZYou are human. Tomorrow is another day.

moanareinaAh...that's no reason to feel bad and shame yourself. Maybe it would be good to have an unhealthy all you can eat day every other week or once a month so you keep motivated to reach your goals with eating.

HumanJA, It happens to me now and then. Give yourself another chance.

Give me an artist and I will listen to an album by them. You can only post one artist and you can't be a troll (no Nickelback). Go!

Who the hell thinks we would make up such a life? Who would even want to imagine such a life?! I'd like to get in the faces of these false accusers (devils) and very firmly yet humanely pour out my extimony upon them and watch them frakking melt! http://www.ex-christian.net/topic/66576-fake-extimonies/#.VMdqpk03NnI
TrueFreedomBe careful, Human. It looks like a couple of them will want to kick your teeth in: http://www.puritanboard.com/f16/www-ex-christian-net-8101/#post107400

HumanAh, the posts there are old, more than nine years ago. I read them. I laughed at how ridiculous and pathetic they seem. Are they typical? Maybe. But then, even when I was a Christian, I thought most other Christians were petty and shallow in their devotion to Christ. I prefer not to go along with any herd. I would rather be off to the side shaking my head when they tumble over the cliff and be thinking, "I told them so, over and over again."

Existentialism will drive a person insane, or at least to despair. I think everyone would do well with a hearty dose of Humanism.
HumanYeah, I was hesitant for a long time to fully embrace the label "Humanism." That's mainly because during my deconversion I cast off "Christian(ity)" and all other labels but "Human." However, Humanism generally expresses how I view reality and myself now. As for the condition of human society, I am optimistic but concerned.

TrueFreedom"A life that partakes even a little of friendship, love, irony, humor, parenthood, literature, and music, and the chance to take part in battles for the liberation of others cannot be called 'meaningless' except if the person living it is also an existentialist and elects to call it so. It could be that all existence is a pointless joke, but it is not in fact possible to live one's everyday life as if this were so." - Christopher Hitchens

Thinking a lot about the future...I know what I want to do, but I'm not 100% sure how to get there :/

HumanMGG, You're already ahead in the game. This is a perfect time for you to sort out your plan. I think you're already a good writer, and you can become a *great writer, with experience, as you go through life. Just keep observing, thinking and *Writing! All of life is awaiting you, from this moment (every moment) forward! :)

I went shopping tonight, and the supermarket was piping in a goddamn fucking CHURCH SERVICE through the sound system. Alas, I wasn't wearing one of my loud ATHEIST T-shirts today.
FreeThinkerNZWow. Just wow.

sdelsolrayWrite corporate headquarters and express your disapproval of religious derive being forced upon you while you shop.

sdelsolray"religious service", not "religious derive". Darned auto spell checkers.
