    I have two main hobbies: I love music and love to read. I also like art galleries, drama, and playing with my iPod. Of course, theology and philosophy are big ones, since I'm on here.
  • More About Me
    I quit Christianity on November 22, sometime in the afternoon, when I was 14 years old. I had been having guiltily suppressed doubts for a couple years, but then I read a chapter of the missionary Jack Popjes' book A Kick in the Pants, in which he said Jesus had been sent to save the world
    mainly for God's glory, to make people want to worship him. (If you read
    the Old Testament, particularly Exodus and Job, it gets into God glorifying
    himself quite a bit.) Well, a seasoned Christian like Popjes saying that
    broke my faith in the point of Christianity. Why should I trust Jesus if
    salvation is really about polishing God's pedestal? If you want to read
    about other things that are wrong with it, like the Bible's sexist double
    standards and winking at rapists, comment on my profile. Best wishes to all other infidels. 

    P.S. I should probably clarify that I am not a Satanist. I know Satanists like the number 666, but I think they misuse it. To me, it is a symbol of secularism, of my non-Xian values, because Xians consider that number to be evil. So I like it. I hate killing, I don't want to go to hell, and I enjoy being happy. 

  1. Things Fundies Say On Facebook

    Oh, Christians. You're too cute. "So Pope Gregory III made a holiday to honor all saints and martyrs. He incorporated some of the ancient Celtic traditions of the time which many Christians did to get non Christians to learn about Christian holidays and traditions. This became Halloween. Any holiday can be twisted into something inappropriate if you let it. Myself and my kids dressed in funny costumes and knocked on doors of family and friends for treats. Never did it cross our minds to worship satan or any other such nonsense. We don't need "an alternative ". It's a Christian holiday. If someone else is celebrating it inappropriately, that's not my problem. I'm not."
  2. One Weird Trick

    Oh I know. I was referring to ANTIFA's claim that unprovoked violence against "Nazis" is just self-defense because the so-called Nazis and anything associated with them (the anthem, for instance I'm sure) are inherently a threat.
  3. One Weird Trick

    That would probably just cause the cars and the cops to be set on fire in self-defense.
  4. Carrie DeKlyen chose to have her baby instead of chemotherapy for cancer, and died September 9, three days after giving birth prematurely. The baby died this past Wednesday. DeKlyen left her husband with their five other children. And, drum roll... the parents made this decision because of their Christian beliefs. I probably don't need to explain why this is so angering. Of course, the choice to prioritize her baby over herself was DeKlyen's right. But "rights" are not necessarily moral choices; this isn't about her legal entitlement to make the choice that she did, so much as that she ended her own life and her own possible future for a life that hadn't yet even begun. I am one of those who believe that a live person with conscious thoughts, emotions, and a personality is more important than a potential person. And it's not only about Carrie, as if I needed more reason to post this: it's that her five living children lost their mother and that her husband lost his wife. I may not have written this at all if it weren't for the kicker that DeKlyen's decision was religiously based. Free choice, even an immoral one, is one thing: a choice influenced or decided by a myth is something else altogether. I no longer see Christianity as the major social threat that I used to do, but every once in a while, something like this reminds me that even though it may not impact society collectively, Christianity still has the power to hurt the people who cling to it. (I posted this in Totally off Topic instead of Rants and Replies due to the political nature of abortion.)
  5. Hmm, let's see. When I was little, about first grade, I decided to refuse to believe in dinosaurs because they and humans couldn't have existed at the same time in the Garden of Eden. I also thought people had sex by lying flat on their backs and then magically orgasming (got this from taking "so-and-so 'lay' with his wife" in the OT literally). But anyway. Guess those don't count. People with depression didn't trust god enough, god made people gay as a punishment for rebelling against him - my parents probably got that one from Romans 1:28 - unbelievers must be argued with whenever possible, probably other things I don't care to remember.
  6. All music? Classical and orchestral, not just hard rock or whatever? All of it? Edit: I read your later posts and it looks like you answered my question.
  7. Sh** christians have said to you

    A manipulated conversion is not a true conversion. Why does she even think this all-powerful holy spirit needs her help? If he's battering the walls of Satan with his conviction-attempts and it's not working, then her guilt-tripping would not be any better at producing actual belief.

    Sending hopeful thoughts to our Florida friends. Keep us posted.
  9. Anger at Christianity

    I'm angry that people whose wedding venue was destroyed by Harvey but who found another place to marry, are now claiming on Facebook that they're "blessed" because the wedding turned out nicely anyway. Um, what about the dead victims? What about people who weren't just inconvenienced by a wedding change, but lost their homes and possessions that they won't get back? I'm angry that Christians blissfully throw their good luck in other people's faces and say Jesus chose to solve their problem while watching others suffer.
  10. Opinions on transgender

    People have begun to think entirely too much about gender, and I don't want to join them. So I take a "meh" attitude for the most part. I feel uncomfortable with people being trans, as I find it (particularly hormone treatment and surgery) creepy. But it's not my body, so not my business. Probably we should all be using the same bathrooms and locker rooms. No one is going to die of changing in the same room with someone of the opposite gender, and no woman is going to suffer sexual assault just because a man is in the next stall. I think the bigger deal we make out of gender, the bigger of a deal it becomes. We can acknowledge there are biological differences between men and women without hysterically painting men as predators and women as prey. I think that in cultures where a wedge is driven between men and women by putting so much emphasis on gender, there is a tendency of femaleness and maleness to be mystified and "otherized" from each other, so that members of each see members of the other as a gender more than as individuals, and there is thus a greater risk of sexual assault. Why should trans people be barred from serving in the military? If we are going to be truly united as a nation, then identity is less important than national security. I've heard the argument that trans people will take a toll on expenses by demanding hormones and surgery, but some defer physical changes or forego them altogether. We could be losing otherwise able serving members by indiscriminately barring an entire group. I'm not a sports fan, so I have no solution to the sports issue.
  11. You may not remember, but Fweethawt has defended gays and lesbians in several posts on Ex-C. I have yet to read the article, and the title did make me wonder, "hmm," but I gave him the benefit of the doubt instead of jumping all over him. I don't think this series of outbursts was necessary, any more than was Fweethawt's earlier language against you. We're all adults here; we can all act like it.
  12. Suicide Is A Sin...

    In Christianity, suicide isn't a sin because it's harmful to oneself; it's a sin for humans because they are god's property, which they believe literally, and therefore hurting themselves means stealing from god.
  13. What is the most dangerous irrational belief?

    I'm not sure there is one that is the most dangerous. Religion leads people to disregard their own safety, forego medical help because "Jesus will save them," kill others so they can get special status in heaven. Anti-vaccination is harmful for obvious reasons. Social prejudice creates in-group cliques, even violence. At the end of the day, stupidity hurts people. There is no hierarchy of which is worst.
  14. Being weird for Jesus

    They're not so much interested in a conversation as winning you to Christ. Once they find out you aren't saved, you are primarily a lost soul to them, or at least to some Christians. Therefore, having a meaningful conversation about something other than Jesus is unnecessary.
