    Based on all the "sacred texts" in the world, why would anyone choose christianity? They gave us the cruel buybull. At least the hindus gave us the kama sutra. ;-)

  • Still have any Gods? If so, who or what?
    No because all gods are imaginary.

  1. Threatened by my pentecostalist father in law

    Your father-in-law is treating YOU like this in YOUR own home and your wife wants YOU to go to a hotel for upsetting her poor widdle daddy!?! NO! NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOO! If it's not feasible to throw them all out of your home, then leave. Your marriage appears to be over and you need to take care of yourself, including legally! One more thing--since your wife is such a buybull-believer, perhaps reminding her of Ephesians 5:22 ("Wives, submit to your own husbands...") would be appropriate.
  2. Checking in

    Thanks for letting us know you're ok! Good luck in putting up with all the crazy god-talk.
  3. How/when can you leave a reaction to a post?

    You'll be able to upvote once you have made a certain number of posts. IIRC it's 20 or 25. So keep on posting!
  4. MOTB from Government or Man

    I was taught that it was about Nero. That's about the only good thing about being raised catholic -- the non-literal interpretation of the buybull. (Not that the wacko-frenzied Book of Revelation could ever be interpreted literally! It reads like a bad drug experience. )
  5. Fuck Pat Robertson

    I agree.
  6. Pence is the main reason I hope Trump doesn't get impeached or die in office. Second-in-Command scares the crap out of me.
  7. More than 20 dead 100 injured in Las Vegas

    It's another awful tragedy. But I'm going to take the opportunity here to rant about one thing in particular because I can't say it anywhere else. I saw one man interviewed who was at the concert but not injured. He said he went into the concert as an agnostic, but came out as a believer since God spared him. WHAT-THE-EVER-LOVING-FUCK on so many levels.!?! Does that mean that everyone who was a believer before the shooting came out of it as agnostic because why wouldn't a good god prevent the massacre? How egotistical that HE was spared but almost* 600 others were not? I could go on, but I'll stop now. I just wanted to reach through the tv and smack that guy! /rant. Thank you. * edited to correct "over" to "almost" ---but if you count the psychological injuries, the number is into the tens of thousands
  8. Who deconverted you?

    A combination of things. I was raised catholic, but I remember having questions from a very early age. I was about 4 years old and heard the Abraham/Issac fable for the first time. Although I had no reason to think so, I was terrified that my parents would kill me if God told them to. I asked them and they assured me that they would never do such a thing. But I wasn't satisfied with what my parents said. I had to know if other people out there would kill their kids. I was worried that my cousins and friends would be killed. So for months I asked my aunts and uncles, friends of my parents, even strangers in the grocery store what they would do. Thankfully, nobody answered that they would kill their kids. However when I asked why would God EVER ask such a thing, I never got a satisfactory answer from anyone. Ever. A test of faith? That never settled well for me. When I was in catholic school in 6th grade, we learned about Greek and Roman mythology. The catholic slant on all these gods was that it was humanity's attempt at getting back to God after The Fall. We assigned all these traits to various gods. In the end, the One True GodTM, Jesus, had all these traits wrapped up in one supreme being, so there was no need for the mythological gods anymore. I, in all seriousness, said maybe that's why the name Jesus sounded so much like Zeus, as in Hey-Zeus. My teacher was speechless, which was probably lucky for me. But that thought stayed with me. In public high school in 10th grade World History, we had a unit on the world's religions. There were so many religions, all of which believed they had the truth. That was also when I read the bible in its entirety. I found myself shaking my head during much of the time.
  9. While I'd love to see the crazy christians become ex-christians (especially my own family members), I think it's just about pointless to try deconverting them. They need to "see the light" on their own.
  10. Nearly always been an atheist, but...

    I think you meant from a literary stand point? Unfortunately far too many christians can only see the bible from a literal stand point and have no grasp on literary styles whatsoever. (Which of course as we all know, can be the foundation of belief in some really weird $hit! lolololol)
  11. HOA Bans Halloween Decorations

    My black cat and I are offended.

    Everytime one of these end times predictions come up, I think about this:
  15. Congrats to Mrs Geezer

    Congrats to you both on serving/surviving your life sentence. I say that because I'm on year 44 with DFH (DearFundyHubby). Seriously though, Happy Anniversary!
