  1. BAA

    Well... fuck. BAA was one of the bright spots here at Ex-C, a person that made it worth visiting. His never-tiring commitment to fighting scientific bullshit was something I admired, but he was always able to be so damn nice about it, too, which is something I always envied. I think it was Carl Sagan that said that life is the Universe observing itself. Now, it has one less person's perspective. You'll be missed, BAA.
  2. 101 Contradictions In The Bible

    Sorry, I expect the ultimate communication from an omnipotent, omniscient deity to its creation to be free of easily corrected errors. Why should I worship a god that's such a shitty communicator? In order to devote myself to such a being, I would have to give myself a frontal lobotomy to keep myself from thinking about how stupid the Bible is.
  3. Open Address To Ex-Xtians

    I read the first paragraph of your post first, since it was the first one in the post. I read all of the sentences in that paragraph, but I wasn't terribly intrigued. I thought maybe things would start to improve in the second paragraph, and that things that hadn't yet been said in the first paragraph would be said in the second paragraph. So I started reading the second paragraph in your post, right after I was done reading the first paragraph, since that would make it he next paragraph in the post. It didn't seem like it would make sense to skip to the third paragraph without reading the second one, and I'd already read the first one, so it didn't make sense to read it again, so I did indeed read the second paragraph after I had finished reading the first paragraph, and before starting on the third paragraph. I started reading the third paragraph of your post right after I finished the second paragraph. Then, I realized that there were more paragraphs after that. As I kept scrolling, I realized there were many, many more paragraphs after that third paragraph. I never did finish reading the third paragraph, because after doing all of that scrolling to see how many paragraphs there might be, I began to feel tired just thinking about the idea of reading that many more paragraphs, especially if they weren't any better than the first two paragraphs I finished reading, or the third paragraph, which I didn't finish, because I got tired. Thank you for joining us. I hope you type a lot more paragraphs that I probably won't read.
  4. Do You Ever Wonder If Christianity Is True?

    How did you know what I was going to answer?
  5. Open Address To Ex-Xtians

    That's nice.
  6. Struggling To Find A Way Back To God

    People follow the god they create in their own head... which is why Thumbelina is good for keeping me from even thinking about going back to Christianity. What kind of horrible person creates a horrible god like that to follow?
  7. The Simplicity Of The Christian Message

    BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!! As if you've ever given a thoughtful answer to any question here, ever.
  8. The Simplicity Of The Christian Message

    Of course, it's easy to say that the Christian message is simple if you do what you have done, which is ignore all of the bits of your religion and holy book that you find contradictory, confusing, or that you just don't like. What you don't realize is that you have left yourself with something that is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike Christianity as most other Christians would believe. What you do can be summed up in a single word: cherrypicking.
  9. Donald Trump Or Hilary Clinton

    The groupthink and celebrity worship from both sides is so incredibly tiresome. One thing I've noticed about a lot of my friends that are Hillary supporters is that they're political people. They like the political game. They like that Hillary is sooo good at that game that no scandal ever touches her. And that's exactly the thing about her that makes me wretch: it's all about winning the game to her, and has not one damn thing to do with anyone or anything else. I don't like the political game, and it's the entire political game that's strangling us all slowly, but that's exactly what she, and others like her in the system, represent to me.
  10. This. And I'll add that given what the Christian Bible has to say about their deity, even if every word of it were true, I could never bring myself to respect, much less worship such a horrific being.
  11. Universe Has 2 Trillion Galaxies, Astronomers Say

    That's like one galaxy for every cell in your body. Depending upon how one counts what cells are yours, that is.
  12. Donald Trump Or Hilary Clinton

    "Hillary or Trump?" No. Wait, that came off a bit rude. Let me try again. "Hillary or Trump?" No, thank you.
  13. Proteins Holding The Human Body Together

    Just to make it even more clear, Christians are going cuckoo over what the simplified diagram of what laminin looks like: This is more like what laminin looks like in reality: As with most things biological, the reality is a bit messier than the simple illustrations. Oh, and, just for good measure, sometimes things look like other things for no particular reason:
  14. The Simplicity Of The Christian Message

    I love being an atheist because I don't have to feel obligated to be an unpaid sales person for a shitty religion with an asshole god.
  15. Darwinisim's "downfall"?

    Sorry, but that kind of stupid shit just isn't worth an hour and a half of my time.
