  • Still have any Gods? If so, who or what?
    Heck No.
  1. "If we are fair, I don't think anyone can be "100% certain" that some type of powerful immaterial being (a "god") does not exist." Would you say that about the Easter Bunny? I'm 100% certain magical beings (magic rabbits and magic god fairies) are not real. This is not rocket science. Anyone who has a brain and knows how to think can figure out these things out. "Currently, I have doubts about whether evolution could be unguided." Sorry but that's worse than ridiculous. You obviously need to study evolution as do several million other people. Supernatural magic is not a mechanism of evolution or any other natural process. "You are very condescendingly implying that I do not care about reality." Sorry but I don't think you understand what reality is. Your "guided" nonsense is not reality. "Similarly, I also have doubts that human consciousness and abiogenesis could be convincingly explained without some kind of intelligence involved." Why do you call your Magic Man "intelligence"? Why not be honest and write this instead: "Similarly, I also have doubts that human consciousness and abiogenesis could be convincingly explained without the Magic Man." There is no magic in the universe therefore magical beings are impossible. If everyone understood this obvious fact then the world would be a much better place. One more thing: abiogenesis has been figured out. It's still a research opportunity but scientists know it wasn't a magical event. Of course they never did think it was magical. Scientists do not invoke your Magic Man (or what you call intelligence) for anything. They find out what really happened. It's childish not to mention ridiculous to invoke the Magic Man for anything. "human consciousness" Evolution by natural selection. It works and the world's biologists knows it works. "From what I can tell of that website" You don't like my blog? Fine with me. I did not write my posts to suck up to superstitious people. The place is free. If you don't like it then don't come back. If you don't want to educate yourself nobody cares. Religious fantasies deserve ridicule. After the 9/11 religious atrocities the time for being nice is over with. I have zero tolerance for theists and agnostics. There is no excuse for this bull stuff. This is the 21st century FFS.
  2. "A few years ago, I used to be a Christian. Now I am sort of agnostic/deistic. And also antireligious." You threw out the ridiculous Christian death cult. Congratulations. Anti-religious. That's wonderful. Deistic: Not good. Agnostic: Not good. We know things these days. We know a magic god fairy was never necessary for anything. The god of the gaps has run out of hiding places. There is no excuse to pretend a god fairy might be real or a god fairy was required to magically start the universe. Hardcore atheist is the way to go. 100% certain magical beings (Easter Bunny, Zeus, Allah, God) are childish and totally impossible fantasies. I explain why magical beings are impossible at http://darwinkilledgod.blogspot.com If you ever decide to completely throw out the god bullshit that's a good thing. It's an acceptance of reality. I like reality because it's interesting and because it's real.
  3. Concerning Belief

    "I don't know if there is an afterlife." Any child could figure it out. Magic is not real therefore a magical 2nd life is impossible.
  4. ag_NO_stic Your non-stop animation is distracting and disgusting.
  5. The Importance of "Full Deconversion"

    "It hardly needs saying that making the transition from being a True Christian to being an Ex-Christian does not happen overnight." It depends on how intense was the brainwashing, aka child abuse. It would be easier for Christians who want to throw out their cult to just understand this simple logic: Magic is not real therefore magic god fairies are impossible.
  6. I would just tell them you figured out the god fantasy is not real. That's all you have to say. If they complain that's their problem. Accepting reality is something to be proud of. If they don't get that who cares. If the abuse is too much then stop visiting your family. It's not your fault they're insane.
  7. What Atheism Has Done For Me

    "Atheism robbed me of a belief in a Heaven wonderful beyond description that was waiting for me after I died." Not something I would wish for. Imagine the eternal boredom. I prefer reality because it's interesting and because it's real. I know I'm lucky to have one life. I'm not greedy for something more.
  8. " Father was a pastor, evangelist in a charismatic Penticostal denomination." Horrible. What bad luck! Does he know you threw the insanity out? Welcome to the 21st century.
  9. Well done what you wrote. You had what it takes to realize the Magic Man is just a fantasy. Thank goodness you were able to figure it out. People waste their entire lives believing in ridiculous nonsense. I liked this: "the ridiculous rules of Christianity". Now you are a free person instead of slave. I was a brainwashed Catholic. When I realized it was a business and the customers were suckers I threw it out. I became an agnostic which is almost as bad as being a theist. Now I am 100% certain magical beings are not real. I'm a real atheist. In a perfect world where everyone is normal, the word atheist would not be necessary because there would be no theists. Since you plugged your website (which I will be reading) I should plug my new blog which virtually nobody knows about. https://hardcoreatheism.blogspot.com
  10. Story Of An Ex-Pastor

    Interesting story you wrote. I noticed you like to read books about the subject. I highly recommend "Faith versus Fact" by Jerry Coyne, University of Chicago biologist. In this very interesting book Jerry Coyne repeatedly kills all the moronic religious fantasies including the ridiculous god fantasy. How do you replace what is really a totally worthless career with a real job? Not sure about that. Good luck with it. Perhaps working hard to develop skills that are in demand might solve the problem. In the meantime how do you survive? The government might be able to help you. Not sure about how to do that. Is the Magic Man real? Most people don't realize how simple this is. My explanation requires just a few words. Here it is: God is just another word for magic. Magic is not real. Therefore magical deities are impossible. That's it. Notice I don't bother with the obvious fact that science has repeatedly chased the god of the gaps out of its hiding places. Science kills the childish god fantasy but we don't need the science to show god fairies are not real. This is all we need: Magic is not real. Period. One more thing. I believe theism and agnosticism are a mental illness. Even the agnostics are insane. Is magic real or not? Apparently the agnostics can't figure it out. Another thing about agnostics: They are full of it. Their excuses for not being certain about the stupidity of the god fantasy are pathetic. God was the human race's greatest mistake. Here we are in the 21st century and we still have religious stupidity, religious brainwashing, a religious war against science education, and out-of-control religious violence. The time for sucking up to religious scum is over with. Religions must be eradicated. Being nice is not going to get us there.
  11. "While there may be a god or force responsible for existence, it most certainly (or likely) is not the God of Christianity." Congratulations for throwing out the ridiculous Christian death cult. You probably already know this but a magical god or a magical force is a childish fantasy that couldn't possibly be real. Science has repeatedly shown a Magic Man was never necessary for anything, and even without the science the idea there's magic in the universe is insane. "If he wanted to, he could of made a world where suffering does not exist and would of been perfectly happy with that." If I wanted to throw out all of reality and pretend a magical master of the universe was real, I would not expect to give a crap about suffering here or at any of the other countless trillions of solar systems. "Yet, my mind still craves that safety net of promised paradise." Yuck. I would not wish for a magical 2nd life. What a disgusting idea. Imagine the eternal boredom. Yet this is the reason religions exist, so feeble-minded cowards can pretend their magical souls will magically fly to a magical paradise after they drop dead. The stupidity, it burns.
  12. Deconverted Seminarian

    Sorry, just one more thing. Evolution is the strongest fact of science. Biologists understand in great detail how new species develop and they know the Magic Man had absolutely nothing to do with it. Since the fairy's magic wand was not necessary for something as complex as evolution, it's ridiculous to pretend the fairy's magical powers were necessary for anything else.
  13. Deconverted Seminarian

    One more thing. A quote from a book you should read. Hitchens wrote about "faith" in his masterpiece "god is not Great, How Religion Poisons Everything". "If one must have faith in order to believe something, or believe in something, then the likelihood of that something having any truth or value is considerably diminished."
  14. Deconverted Seminarian

    "It has been roughly 5 years since I dropped out of Seminary and leaving the Evangelical faith. It's been a winding road, but ultimately I do still believe in God." I read the whole thing. You are obviously a very intelligent person. Congratulations on throwing out most of the ridiculous bullshit. But you are not done yet. This not rocket science. It's not necessary to write a book about it. Just a few words you need to understand before you become a free person, and not a slave to a moronic childish fantasy. Here it is: God is just another word for magic. Magic is not real. Therefore magical beings (Allah, Zeus, Easter Bunny, tooth fairy, Santa Claus, God) are impossible. Period. There is nothing more to say about it.
