  1. I see. Now I'm wondering if epilepsy isn't actually demon possession. Abrahamic theology really fucks with people.

  2. If you had a time machine, you'd probably be shafted from ever finding jesus at all. You'd probably find a slew of various jesus's around that time, none of which fit the model of the gospel character in full, only different jesus's fitting different parts of the story, and from different timelines.

  3. There is no God, or god. Not one, there's never ever been one & never will be one. I say this because the idea of god is people reaching out to explain a cause of all existence. Every fucking idea of god people invent has hangups, why? Because those inventors of gods have hangups. Look at all the gods we have invented throughout time, aren't they all so pathetic, so human like. You know what I mean?

  4. Based on your behavior on this thread so far, I'm starting to form the opinion that the description of "troll" might have some merit to it.

  5. hello all! almost a decade ago I found this site and it literally saved my life. Some of you may remember me as Duckiegirl. Here's the link to the thread with all my crazy past as an out ex-christian living with my Calvinist parents: My Father Is Becoming a Pastor the past 5 or 6 years have been downright blissful comparatively. I met a wonderful, supportive man who I married in 2017, and i RARELY, RARELY have contact with my father. However, recently i began posting about my trauma, especially those caused by religion and my father. Specifically thi

  7. I read somewhere that when you are experiencing a NDE, your breathing is inconsistent and this leads to less supply of oxygen to your system. This can cause effects similar to hallucinations. Couple this with the fear instilled in you by your religious upbringing and you thinking about your god in that sense will give a heady mix. So a Jeebus 'lover' will have visions of Jeebus (I bet these visions would be a long haired, bearded, caucasian Jeebus even if Jeebus wasnt probably like this if he existed at all). A hindu might similarly have a vision of a hindu god, etc. A buddhist might see

  10. No, not any comment. In this case, mainly just yours. You called the article "grossly unfair", called the author ignorant, and implied that the readers were equally ignorant. If you noted anything specific, I've missed it. Feel free to draw it to my attention. Otherwise, this is clearly just trolling, and calling it such is not being touchy. It's being accurate.

  11. Scientists speculate that X is going on, Creationists speculate that Y is going on, psychics speculate that Z is going on......... at least I'll take a look, wait and see what scientists are musing about. Often their speculation evolves into something useful, never so with the other speculators.

  13. You were clearly trolling, and you were rude. When you post comments on someone else's blog, you have to play by their rules. Just how it is. Here in the Den, the rules are fairly permissive. If you want to state your objections clearly, I'm sure we could muster up some responses.

  15. Hey all, thanks for the replies. There are things I've been vague about because my story is unusual enough that I don't think someone in this sphere would have much trouble putting it together. It's probably delusional, but part of living this life is an outsized fear of discovery. ("Your sin will find you out.") The day will come when I'll be able to be more open about it, and hopefully look back on all of this with a very different perspective. Writing this out is absolutely a therapeutic exercise. I won't go into detail, but there's a precipitating factor I became aware of a few w

  17. Which one - provide link? That doesn't happen here - you have to be continually and for an extended period of time breaking the rules and posting in an egregious manner to get banned. Assumptions are the mother of all fuckups. No No No You are sure its not the case... but someone is touchy? So it is the case?? Hmmm Ok whatever the subject was hit us with your best shot.

  18. The existence of a multiverse is not a scientific theory. It is speculation from some physicists.

  20. It's pretty fucked how so many people are robbed from having equilibrium in their families because of one (I have no words to describe what slime Jesus was) I literally want to invent a time machine for the sole purpose of going back to his time, and throwing that prick off a cliff just before he got started.

  21. This took off in various directions by the 3rd page. But I'm going back to square one. It's a balance. I think there should be a balance between pseudo skeptics and pseudo scientific claims. Because that's what these sort of issues draw out. And often the pseudo skeptics don't realize that they are equal, but opposite, of the pseudo scientists. But I've picked up on it over time observing. Read below and let me know if that's what you originally meant in the OP. Not an attack on science in any way, but a jab at the pseudo skeptics within science and in pop culture in recent decad

  22. Just one of the many many examples of how fear and indoctrination can negatively impact society. Churches need to be licenced and audited to ensure they are not systematically destroying lives. Learning institutions need to offer classes on avoiding mind control and group think.

  23. I'm so sorry you are going through this L.B. But I do think that time apart could help you both figure out which direction to go. How do you feel right now? It just blows me away how the horrible doctrine of christianity and hell can have such an impact on not just marriage, but in every aspect of life. So, so sad. I got my fingers crossed for you.

  25. Hang in there! No one deserves that kind of treatment, certainly not a child. Big hugs! I've only recently realized how human my parents were. No abuse, but sometimes their faults and behaviors are startling in retrospect. Kids expect their parents to really have a handle on life, but then we (or other basic humans we know) become parents and we see how they stumble through it all. That's normal parenting. What you had was and remains a very messed-up human who isn't a good parent or human, and caused a lot of trauma to you. I hope you can keep processing all the crap,

  26. Welcome back! Wow, he's controlling, manipulative, passive-aggressive, crazy-making, gas-lighting, blame-shifting, and you are so very much better off without him or anyone like that in your life. I only had to deal with a housemate like that. He used to go through my stuff, looking for porn I think, and justified it by being "my brother's keeper" when he really just wanted wanking material and didn't want to pay for it. I once set up booby-traps in my room when I went on vacation, he set them off but never mentioned it. He had actually gone so far as to remove the insulatio
