  1. If god was real, you would think he would recognize the fact that certain humans will automatically not believe it for the very reason it was written by humans. And for good reason, humans have proved to not be the most trustworthy species on the planet throughout time. So I guess those particular humans are just doomed for no apparent good reason? And what about faith? To have faith in god, you must first have faith in humans, because humans wrote the Bible which is instructing you to have faith [in god]. Whether it was inspired or not is irrelevant, because you still need to firs

  2. In my experience being called out on bullshit only breaks the glass when you've reached the point of change, the precipice. It also helps build to that breaking point. Some people never change though.

  3. Hello all. I'm new to this site, and I figure I'd share my story about de-converting from my religion (Christianity of course.) It might be a bit boring, but it honestly was very hard for me. And I'll explain it all. I'm going to make some things short, because explaining them in detail would take ages, and I honestly don't want to re-live those memories. I'm 17 years old. I'm from an area where most if not all people are Christians. I've only had one non-religious friend in my life, and she is Agnostic. And of course, I was born into a Christian family. My parents are both very co

  4. It's not a valid point that Craig makes. In chapter 11 of his book "Not the Impossible Faith," Richard Carrier decimates the argument that women were not considered valid sources of testimony about the gospel. Here is an excerpt from pages 300 and 301: Christian apologists seem to be the worst people in the world at profiling unknown people that came out of a 2-3rd century C.E. cultural milieu.

  5. I viewed this part of the video as looking back and trying to make sense of what was happening. Yet at the same time describing the confusion about the way things were changing and not being able to understand what was happening as you were going through it. On an unrelated note, I forwarded your series to my pastor brother-in-law. I was expressing to him that had someone like him taken notice of your struggle, he might have been able to help you make sense of it. Granted you still probably would have left the church but at least there would have been a compassionate ear to help you

  6. Thank you for this, I want people to tell me these things because I want the videos to be as effective as I can make them. One of my fears when uploading, especially part 4, was that it would come across as self-pitying. You asked what the 'great objection' was and I wish I could just answer that. If it were that simple, I would have just said it. Worship was a big one (I talked about in part 3). But mostly what it was was having my faith slowly bleed to death and there was nothing I could do to stop it. A lot of Christians (like Evid3nc3) when they deconvert it is for intellectual reaso
