  1. There is no way to checkmate a christian, it can't be done. they always find a way to get out of thinking their king is cornered. I don't know what it is, most of them are smart enough to see the logical fallacies in their beliefs, but they just downright deny how their beliefs really are.

  2. It's been a five year journey into de-converting from my beliefs in Jesus. I really believed at the time that Jesus was going to bring me into a right relationship with him, but the more I held onto that hope the less actually happened. I remember as far back to my teen year's of hanging out with the Christian youth group in my area and feeling so alone. I always had little doubts about Christians, but I pushed those doubts deep down inside. As I got older I went from church to church, from one bible study to another looking for the right people I could feel comfortable with. (But

  3. For me, a very important step to my recovery was recognizing that this is not possible. Christianity had shaped who I am in irreversible ways. It can't be undone. But there is still time to move forward from here. You are who you are, and your experiences won't go away. You can't make them. But what you can do is make sure that your new experiences are taking you in the direction that you want to go. Explore your interests. If you struggle to explore them, then struggle, but still explore. Learn new things. Look in new directions. If I read you right, you've been out

  4. It's different for each person, based on our own psychological makeup. For a while I was frequenting a crystal store's Wicca section because it felt like home for some reason. I have always liked studying the old gods of Greece and Rome, Egypt and Babylon, so it was interesting to talk with people that use those as archetypes for various parts of personality and introspection. It sounds like you still really want there to be a "person" that you can settle on as the creator. I still find myself occasionally asking for some kind of help from someone out there, though honestly I haven

  5. Justus, isn't your position that Jesus' resurrection was an actual, literal, miracle? As such, isn't it supposed to be something that couldn't happen without divine intervention? So the odds of it happening spontaneously, on your position, if I understand it correctly, should be zero. Otherwise, why call it a miracle? But here you seem to be saying that it has a non-zero probability of happening naturally. Well, which is it? A miracle, or a natural event? It seems to me that arguing that Jesus' resurrection may have happened naturally would be counterproductive from a Christian per

  6. I just ask 'em if they believe in Zeus, and if not, why not.

  7. ...I could not reconcile that a god could make something perfect only to have it rebel and suddenly is not perfect. How can a perfect entity suddenly be not perfect? Makes zero sense. That was when I started researching, even more, then one day the question hit me..."Where have all the gods gone?" It was at that point I realized that the truth is far from true! From then on, I smelled the stench of man, not the hand of a god in writing that book. So, after much thought and research, I came to the conclusion that I had to admit there are no gods. We have so many religions because we

  8. Deeply held beliefs are , well ... deeply held. Emotional attachment keeps them that way. A Christian told me (when I too was a Christian) a good reply to someone trying to hit me with an anti-Christian argument is, "That's nice, but I choose to believe in Jesus." So, just summarily dismiss whatever a non-Christian was trying to hit me with, regardless of whether it made sense. I think the key is not to allow yourself to even consider it...because critical thought Satan will get into your mind like that. It's interesting that my Christian friend had to consciously suppress critic

  9. I think the cause you’re looking for is called “Brainwashing”. And it’s been proven to be extremely effective. Evidence indicates higher education has no effect on it either. Once the God virus infects a brain it becomes almost impossible to extract it. And it is contagious too.

  10. It's quite amazing you made it work. Do you think this bible verse is in the back of her mind. New International VersionFor the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.

  11. Basically And I quote “you can find anything on the internet if you want to, it doesn’t mean it’s true”. so basically everything I found. Everything. The history, the forgeries, the history they have discovered evidence for that doesn’t add up with the Bible, the contradictions. It all fake. Every bit of it. So so yeah she is happy believing. She’s not happy with me not believing but that has gotten better. I think she realizes I do still love her. Even without God. DB

  12. Nope I think once you see all the information against Christianity like you have there is no believing again. 2 things still boggle my mind. 1. How did I get sucked so deep into a belief that is an obvious lie for so long. 2. When believers are faced with what we now know. How can they keep believing? Or not at least consider the possibility. When I was first seeing all of this I was very open with my wife. She heard everything I was seeing myself. But she is still a believer. Amazingly it is what she saw in her grandfather that keeps her faithful. Not rea

  13. That is true. Another thing I'll add is that Christian beliefs turned me into a monster. I'm in monster recovery now, and I love it.

  14. Deconversion is certainly an uncomfortable process for many people. But, like you said, once you complete the process, it's difficult to even imagine going back.

  15. They say it's ok to make plans for your escape and keep it to yourself at the same time. You need to plan out your exit very carefully so you don't end up returning back.
