  1. So I haven't been on here in a long time and I thought it would be good to come back and give an update just in case anyone was interested. My husband and I ended up getting a divorce because my lack of faith became too much of an issue. It wasn't bad though, it was amicable and more just like recognizing that our lives had us on different paths and the most loving thing to do was to just let go. I have moved back home, I am super happy now, going to school still (now I can pursue my school and career dreams better than I would have been), and I am seeing someone else who is a way better match

  4. I am overwhelmed because for the FIRST time in 62 years of life I am free to say, think, feel, be and do ANYTHING. And for the first time in my life I can finally find out WHO I AM. And the icing on the cake!!!! Without all that wasted time reading, studying, listening to the bible and Christian teachings and without all that time and energy wasted praying and trying to figure out what I need to say/do/believe differently (because it isn't working) and be so guarded and controlled in every way........... I, yes... ME, has time and energy to learn ART, Music, Astrophysics, Neuros

  14. "Judge not, that ye be not judged... Let him who is without sin cast the first stone." Somewhere along the way Christians forgot this and decided that they are jury and judge.

  15. It has been over 7 years since I first created my account. Over the years, I have grown as an Atheist. I have become less concerned with proving Christianity wrong & more with being apathetic on the issue. Perhaps I started out like that so I could prove something to myself. I was scared & doubtful. Today, I am confident. I really don't give a shit what people believe, so long as their beliefs are not pushed on me or anyone for that matter. The conversation these days is simple. I tell them I don't believe in their stupid Bible and they typically state that there is no need for further

  16. It's all fine. He told them and his job is 100% secure and they don't hate me, not that I care if they did. I'm just so burnt out, this whole thing has been so stressful and I am an introvert. I've retreated to a different room and sort of made a safe space for myself and he apparently doesn't understand the meaning of leave me the hell alone.

  17. Videos like this just make it so clear that the arguments that were made in my classes at Bible College were based on misrepresented and over emphasized information, that was essentially a straw man. The examples of the eye and 747 were used to show that you can't just get complex systems by chance, but of course that is not what evolution says, just what I was told it said. This is a great video series.

  21. I miss the days when liberals weren't crazy and republicans weren't reactionary. We could have intelligent, productive conversations and both were interested in the good of the country. Now it's just polarization and mud slinging. I'll go back in my cave now.

  22. I find that I am still stunned to find people I know who are politically fundamentalist. That is, they are so completely entrenched that they only speak of others with disdain and mockery, attacking a straw man of "libtard" or "republicunt" instead of issues. When I encounter it on forums, I can tune it out easily and move on. When it comes from people I know, it is like a smack in the face. Otherwise intelligent people are reduced to using stupid insults like I just mentioned, and creating caricatures that are worthy of the KKK or Nazi propagandists. To them is has all been reduced to a simpl

  31. “One of the most amazing and perplexing features of mainstream Christianity is that seminarians who learn the historical-critical method in their Bible classes appear to forget all about it when it comes time for them to be pastors. They are taught critical approaches to Scripture, they learn about the discrepancies and contradictions, they discover all sorts of historical errors and mistakes, they come to realize that it is difficult to know whether Moses existed or what Jesus actually said and did, they find that there are other books that were at one time considered canonical but that ultim

  32. Just because a person is an atheist/non religious doesn't mean that they're suitable to be a lifetime partner. Likewise, just because a person is a Christian, doesn't mean that they're unsuitable. If I had to commit to marriage I would rather have a faithful, stable, Christian wife than some of the individuals I've seen in the atheist community so far. Of course, I don't know the whole story or what else could have gone into her decision (besides pressure from her Christian mother and her child).

  47. As I approach March 18th, I had a good laugh this evening when I used to think of how I would pray before any major event. All the time I used to spend praying for a positive outcome, never once thinking about how selfish it was for KNOWING my often trivial prayer would be answered while someone else in the world with an ACTUAL prayer request would likely be denied. Sometimes I wish I had figured it out sooner, and those times I wound up succeeding was due to my own doing. Like I hope next weekend will be. On the 18th, I test for my 1st degree black belt in my martial arts style. It wi
