  • 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

    Friend dumped me over religion

    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.

    Thousands of children die of starvation every single days. Any god that would allow such a thing, deserves absolute contempt.

    Ask yourself, can a "holy" god kill thousands of children, and still maintain his holiness? Absolutely not, but we find that the bible does attempt to, and that is a clear contradiction. The bible-god not only killed all the first born of Egypt, but he did it deliberately. In Exodus we find that god wants pharaoh to release his people, and though he was ready to do so, god hardens pharaoh's heart, and then proceeds to kill all their male first born. .

    Adam and Eve's sons and daughter did indeed sleep with each other, as that was the only way to procreate, however, we find in the bible that incest is a sin, let alone, seeing a close relative naked. Therefore, we find a clear contradiction, that is irrefutable.
  7. 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.

    "The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church." ~ Ferdinand Magellan " Truth does not demand belief. Scientist do not join hands every Sunday, singing, "yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up must come down, down, down. Amen!" If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it." ~ Dan Barker "If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed." ~ Albert Einstein "As people become more intelligent, they care less for preachers and more for teachers."~ Robert Ingersoll

    "For me, it is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfy and reassuring." ~ Carl Sagan "I felt a bit like a child, as though I was rediscovering the world. In particular, I remember a monthlong period in which I became flat-out fascinated with trees-- there was something beautiful about the way they branched out, cutting a tangled silhouette against the sky. I also became enthralled with sunsets, and to this day I still love watching sunsets. Everything seemed fresh and new. It was as if in my enthusiasm for the supernatural, I had overlooked all the beauty the natural world has to offer. Now I was playing catch-up, discovering all the neat stuff I'd missed. I also read dozens of science books during this time-- I decided it was time to find out how the universe really works, as I didn't want to ever be fooled again." ~ Rob Berry http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~slocks/quotes.html
  11. I was told "if there isn't a god, who created Adam & Eve then?" I was thinking in my mind "this person is delusional."

    Calling Atheism a religion is like calling bald a hair color. – Don Hirschberg “I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.” - Stephen Roberts

    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? – Epicurus

    Isn’t it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? – Douglas Adams " Religion is like a virus that affects the behaviour of its host in such a way as to propagate itself further. – Jack Pritchard Animals do not have gods, they are smarter than that. – Ronnie Snow
  15. As humanity continues to evolve, religion's grip on humanity will become less and less.
