Those days when you just feel like you belong nowhere.

    I know the feeling. I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling out of place.

Sooo pleased I found this website. I'm pleased I'm not alone in my situation. I'm working up the guts to tell my wife I don't believe.

Without Christianity, I'm free to sin, but I don't really want to anyways.

    Probably because the forbidden fruit effect wears off. You then find that say...drinking yourself to oblivion has more mundane, worldly consequences.

    Same here. There are a lot of "things" that I really want to do; but, the urge was so much stronger when under their programming. Now, it is like, yeah, maybe I will get around to experiencing that..someday...when it is convenient. In the meantime, I am completely enjoying my anxiety free life. :)

    When you're a christian, there's also the thought that "if I'm going to do this, I should do it to an extreme and enjoy it as much as I can because I will feel guilty about it later, I need to make the experience worth the guilt".

Aquinas wrote 1000s of pages. About a God of whom, he argued, nothing can, strictly speaking, be said.

    Lao Tzu did pretty much the same thing by extensively describing the Tao which, as he defined, cannot be described. Maybe "those who know do not say" is true, but somehow that doesn't stop them from going on and on about it anyway.

Just two gigs left in summertime community band season. Time to get out the alto clarinet, alto sax and flute in anticipation of regular-season musical mayhem.

Fundy profundity of the day: "The reason only men could vote when America was founded was that women weren't educated. It would have been like letting a 4-year-old vote. They had no understanding of the issues. It wasn't sexism."

    And why weren't women educated? Because they were expected to stay home and raise children, and because they weren't thought to be bright enough to handle education.

    This is like saying "black people couldn't vote because they were slaves and couldn't speak English well." What caused this to be true? Racism.

    Quite true that I guess. Though I wouldn't be surprised to learn the women back then knew more than everyone thought ;)

My dad is so great! He's been an atheist most of his life (denounced Xianity when he was a teen), so I've been leaning on him a lot for support in my deconversion. Anyway, yesterday I was really struggling with some stuff, and so he did some research to try and help me....and landed here at Ex-C and suggested I join! I told him I already frequent the forums here, but isn't that super cool of him?!

    Your dad sounds awesome. You're lucky for his parental support. We're glad you're here.

    Thanks, Furball! I'm glad to be here! :)

    And yes, it is great having his support. I know I'm lucky, because a lot of people here at Ex-C don't have that kind of support within their families, and for many, it's quite the opposite.

Why do people post their drama on their Facebook timeline and tag people involved for everyone to read instead of just messaging each other?

    I find green tea helps. So does a pinch of salt on the wound, but that's not as pleasant.

    Thanks all! :) Rjn, it's trauma therapy with the focus on getting my dissociated mind to function better, and to strengthen my sense of self and personal security. The timing is quite perfect, I was afraid I'd have to wait many months.

    Good to hear! A was going to start CBT for my OCD this week (been waiting for a year) but they decided I wasn't "an urgent case" so... screw it.
