  • More About Me
    I was born in and have lived in Arizona my whole life. During this time, I was a Christian for 15 years, until I started actually using my brain. Currently, I am attending college, and if you're wondering, i'm still undecided. I look forward to getting to know more people on Ex-C, so please, ask questions if you are interested in knowing more about me. ~ Jesse

  1. 2 Cornthians 6:14 is clear about this issue. If this particular Christian believes in the literal interpretation of the Bible they will not have anything to do with you. I lost friends as well. It is common for people to lose friends. Even after becoming a Atheist for a few years, I lost friends who got more involved in being a Christian. It's unfortunate but that's just the way the cookie crumbles. It may hurt but it is probably best for you too because they won't stop trying to convert you.
  2. 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 conversation. Without the Bible as the center of the issue they have nothing and, frankly, I have better stuff to do than argue with a dumb ass.

  4. Apperantly god didn't have any problem with incest, unless he created some guy we don't know about, to sleep with Adam's daughter.

      If he did, then it completely invalidates the concept of "original sin" because that man would not be Adam's seed. That would in turn invalidate the purpose of Jesus, and therefore xianity in it's entirety.

  5. I was told "if there isn't a god, who created Adam & Eve then?" I was thinking in my mind "this person is delusional."

  6. As humanity continues to evolve, religion's grip on humanity will become less and less.

  8. It is time for the people of America to come together in solidarity to deal with the corruption and greed that is destroying our country. It doesn't matter what race you are, what religion you claim, what political stance you have, we need to come together. Please America, stand up and demand change! How can we live in a country like this, when so many have sacrificed their lives for a better America. How can we stand back as patriots, when we know our country is being destroyed. Let us unite!"

      While I can appreciate the sentiment....the rhetoric sounds familiar to what the Christian Right has said for years.

       

      It is amazing how similar both sides can be in the imagery they use.

  10. Support "Occupy Wall street," by getting the word out.

  11. If there can't be Ex-Christians as fundies argue, wouldn't that then infringe on the Christians freewill?

      hereticzero

      If freewill exists then god gave to us to know when to leave Christianity.

    2. Josefe

      Josefe

      HereticZero, thank you. Christians should have the freeWill to become "Ex-Christians." If they don't, then that would be an infringement on their freewill. For this exact reason, there has to be Ex-Christians. On top of that, the notion that Yahweh would never be denied, is not biblical, and it's an assumption.

      Bingo! I'll have to remember this free will argument if ex-c ever comes up in discussion. Christianity is such a pretzel of contradictions.

  12. faith is absolutely contrary to the natural human code needed to stay honest and logical with one's self. Thank you for your post. Jesse
  13. Losing friends to Christianity has occurred more than once for me. When I left the church my friends dropped one after the other. I had one particular friend that I knew before I started with the church, we still talked periodically, but our friendship wasn't the same. But Just recently he has backslidden, and now we have been hanging out almost every day. He says he plans to go back to church in the future. The other day me and him had a debate about his religion, I destroyed him of course, but something interesting came up. I told him " If you ever go back to the church you know we will stop talking right?" he looked at me and said " I know." Therefore I have been trying my best to plant some seeds in him, hoping he will leave his religion all together. He is a 49 year old man that believes his faith and personal experience are enough to justify his belief in this god. He also believes science is completely wrong and shouldn't be trusted. I don't know if he can be saved. I also recently met an old friend from grade school at the college. Every day he would come to my home before class and after.Me and him felt like we knew eachother really well because of our child hood. But one day walking home with him he said " I am going to get baptized this weekend, would you come." I said "I am an Atheist, I really don't have no interest." After that weekend I saw him and he was completely different. He cut his long hair and was completely submissive. After that he refused to come to my home again, I actually haven't seen him since. One of my best friends Eric, I knew him for most of my life. I stopped talking to him years ago because he had a meth addiction. Recently he came back into my life, but he was very religious. We eventually got into a debate about his religion so he stopped coming to my house because of it. He is the one that started the debate. I have lost a lot of good friends because of this religion. And have been called some really messed up things. I have been called Satan, Demon, lost, stupid, rebellious, fool, etc. thank you for your story jesse
  14. Jesus once said: sex is for the purpose of reproductions. And a disciple asked: so why is it so enjoyable? And Jesus said: Fool, who is to know the things of god! His now ex-disciple looks at him and says: ah, what do you know, you're a 30 year old virgin!

  15. I feel sorry for the Christian women that has a husband that believes sex is only for reproduction. I imagine a women who desperately needs to try it just once for pleasure, but it is beyond her grasp. ha

      I had a relative, now deceased, who divorced her THIRD husband, a truck driver, because she said he was a 'sex fiend.' All he wanted was sex when he got home. I told her, 'at least he waited until he got home.' She then preached about the holiness of sex and not for fun and gratification. I always thought she was just NUTS.

      HereticZero, if her husband is a sex fiend, and she views sex as "not fun or gratifying", I imagine he cheats on her.
