  1. LOL raoul, we used to call those people "sunday drivers". They have all the time in the world to wander around and no one else on Earth exists except them. And you are so right that they do come in all ages. Sometimes you gotta just get in and out like a ninja!
  2. London!!?? You stayed up ALL NIGHT to write mean things to Christians?? I know right? It only took me 6.5 hours to compose that post. Thankfully I have just arisen from the coffin, had my morning cup of blood and am raring to go!
  3. This sounds like someone who is afraid of that education, it sounds like someone who begins to deconvert but still has all the doubts about their choice. That is correct End, we know that "the truth" is not in the bible, Koran or the Torah. And we are quite sure it's not in any other "book" either. I think you misunderstand the people who come here. People are WAY happier without some snake oil version of the truth that abrahamic religions try to sell the people of Earth. Only a cult can convince people that there is a "truth". In reality, there is only life to live, there is no "truth", "word", "good news" etc. So I am going to refute your claim of unhappiness by using this website as proof. Testimony after testimony appears here by many current and former members that they are much happier now without xianity. Perhaps I misunderstand you End, I thought you read threads in other sections of Ex-C. Perhaps I assumed something that is incorrect, perhaps you stay in certain sections only and have not actually experienced the threads where people are giddy with joy after finally breaking free of the painful shackles of the xian cults. I also wanted to reswpond to something you mentioned earlier about how mean we all are to you. That is incorrect. I recall being very supportive of you finding a job where you are not treated badly. I said you needed to have more respect for yourself and not tolerate being treated badly at your job and perhaps you needed to find a job where you were appreciated more. I a heathen, was trying to to say that you a christian, don't deserve to be treated like shit at your job. I guess that was a horrible thing for me to do, be supportive and all. Here's how that works in a different scenario... Christianity convinces you that you are a sinner, or basically one stolen hymnal away from burning in hell for eternity. You are then required to treat yourself with contempt the entire time you are on Earth, and you are to let others treat you the same way. Evil sinner that only jesus can save. The church says I'm bad... I let others treat me bad... I'm a victim because I'm a sinner because... The church says I'm bad... I let others treat me bad... I'm a victim because I'm a sinner because... <to infinity> Sometimes I read your posts End, in threads I don't even participate in, and I feel like I hear someone who is bitter because they want to deconvert but are either afraid or are in a situation that would become highly umcomfortable if they did deconvert. It's phrases like these that really speak volumes to me. And just so we are clear, I didn't get up at 6AM to post this, I haven't been to bed yet.
  4. I find this rude that people think their little spare change is going to convert these nations and actually make their standards of living better. The governments of those countries need to make things better for their citizens. Religion gets so pius thinking it's solving their problems. Fix the shit in this country first. Sorry end, you don't get to claim "victim" here. You are a part of the cult we all left. When you become an Ex-C like all of us and people treat you bad we will be there to defend you. But coming in here being a jerk and then claiming "victim" is a typical christard trick. Get down off that cross end we need the wood! You really mean 'beat on xians', that's clearly how this thread is going. You have been here long enough end to know that most people who come here are DECONVERTING. They are in transition from various levels of pain from xianity. If you have not learned that by now you never will. If you 'can choose' to be nice then maybe you need to make that the rule not the exception. I personally think (as mentioned before) that you are playing the victim here. Be an ass and people will treat you like an ass. If your life sucks don't come here and start shit just to get attention, have a conversation like a human. And to the bolded part... it speaks volumes to me about your pending deconversion. Ahhh... the christian love in this alone... You know comments like this really bother me, everyone starts to try and connect "being good" with some higher purpose and frankly it is bullshit spoken by anyone. Humans do not need a reason to be good. We don't need a church or government or a system of beliefs to be good humans. All we need to do is see someone in pain to activate our human compassion. It's built in to the DNA. A child cries, you comfort it, someone asks for food, you feed them. We don't need to make huge political organizations that spend 75% of the donations on administrative costs. Religion has yet to prove it is actually helping the Earth. Perhaps all the money spent printing and selling bibles could be better used for housing, food and education. People don't need a god, they need shelter, food, education so they can help themselves in the long run. Religion gives a false hope. People need people. Good is something we don't need to be told to do, it's a choice we make on our own. We know when to be a good person, just like you knew not to be an ass in this thread. Stop being an angry xian end and deconvert already.
  5. I would donate $10.00 to a local atheist organization in the name of the radio station, then I would send the radio station the following letter. And after you send them the letter and make the donation, I would call the station and see if they let you tell your story on the air.
  6. Hammer. Nail. Head. Dead on right. This might be the greatest misconception xians have and the one that makes me most sad because it means that they are also devaluing themselves. I was gonna comment on this as well. I really like how you put that, Stryper. It seems to be the case for a lot of the Christians so many of us were friends with. That lack of realizing that only our beliefs have changed, not the people we really are. It makes me question if they really are who they present themselves as. Are they really that good? That nice? Or is it just the religion? In my personal experience, many of them are really angry people who just want to shove rules on other people but never follow rules themselves. Although I have actually met some nice xians, I have unfortunately met way too many mean nasty evil people. Most atheists don't believe in evil because it is a xian concept, I am an exception to that rule, I think most xians personify evil. All that "show the jesus love" is nothing more than sugar laced with asbestos, arsenic and cyanide. It just reminds me of the big warning... "want some candy little boy?" The people who were inherently good before the cult got them will usually break away. True nasty people will stay and become huge fundies. I'd like to think that I've always been inherently good even though I grew up in the church. =) I was always inclined to love people for their own sake and not to "win souls" or whatever. Even got in an argument with my grandma once because I just wanted to hang out with some friends for the evening and she thought I should take the opportunity to witness to them all. Probably should have kept my mouth shut, but whatever. Just that whole idea made me angry. "Loving" with an agenda. -puke- You can always tell a good person because they put the "religion" aside. It makes you suddenly question why they are a part of the religion. And they usually leave the religion forever. But the bad people who only do "good" because their religion requires them too are very obvious, they constantly make you feel bad when they are doing something nice for you. They expect something in return and act as though you should worship them for doing something so small. Truly good people just help. I think everyone here is in the good realm. I actually have a few good xians that I am waiting for the light of disbelief to shine on.
  7. Actually end, mymistake & T2M have helped many people just by participating in this forum. You seem to forget that this website is for EX-christians, non-believers, people who are no longer interested in being a part of any abrahamic googlie-goo. And the people who participate on a regular basis here have many lurkers who see what we all experienced in the cult, and it helps them deal with the mind games, and eventually they leave the craziness behind. Sometimes they come and join and post alongside all of us, sometimes not. For all the past and current members here, we have helped many get away from the cult, and we asked nothing in return. We don't own a building or drive expensive cars, we don't make anyone believe in a myth with the threat of eternal damnation, we just come here and be supportive. And many members here actually financially support this website, it's not required, they do it because they want to. One church going under will not be any loss to the world. And if you are so offended and feel that it must not perish, then you can support $$ that parish! How dare you try and make people feel bad that they are no longer supporting a church/population/belief. You have no clue what any of us do with our time and money. No one requires me to be a good person, I decide who to help, when and how. I would never give money to a church that "claims" they are helping people, most of the money never helps the people that really need it. Perhaps you might try having a real conversation instead of personally attacking people at a heathen website for not supporting a church. THAT sir is the dumbest thing you could do here. Perhaps the next time you decide to utter the phrase "You don't strike me as too bright.", you might stand in front of a mirror and look forward before that comes out of your mouth again. Oh and end... god's gonna be pissed at you for treating other people like you just did... just sayin'
  8. Jesus fuck, this is some batshittery you've discovered here. This guy needs a padded helmet to just function in society, doesn't he? I was thinking something made out of tinfoil? Perhaps add some yarn or string and a reflector or a couple of wires... Hammer. Nail. Head. Dead on right. This might be the greatest misconception xians have and the one that makes me most sad because it means that they are also devaluing themselves. I was gonna comment on this as well. I really like how you put that, Stryper. It seems to be the case for a lot of the Christians so many of us were friends with.

  9. I just watched this (it's long) and parts of it are really dumb (moderator *cough cough*) but Hitchens and Fry are awesome in this. The question on the table is about "the catholic church is a force for good in the world". Get a big bowl of popcorn and enjoy.
  10. I'm glad to hear you are becoming more comfortable in the real you.
  11. What? You didn't understand this: Makes perfect sense to me I read that quote a couple times and finally gave up. Too many g's and o's and goo's and nonsense. Hoe Lee Phuc I completely agree. I was waiting for some "kemsogd" or a few !!!1!!1!!!'s to show up. It might have been easier to get through if it was in Russian.
  12. I say ignore her and if you have to then block her. If your parents find out and start questioning you tell them the truth, this lady is hounding you about church and it's not her business how you express your religion. I have had to deal with a few stalkers in my time and the best thing is to cut them off. If you run into her in person I would just tell her that your religion is personal and you have no intention of discussing it with people anymore. You don't have to justify that your religion is actually a lack of religion, that can be a religion if you label it so. I'm sure she is a nice person but now she has traversed into religious stalker and that is a big problem. Whatever you decide I hope she leaves you alone.
  13. You can actually do it without copying it to you computer at all. Open a second tab (#2) in your browser and go to Google Images. Then return to your first tab (#1) that contains the image you wish to search. Put your mouse over the image click and hold while dragging the image to the other tab (#2), slowly pause so the browser switches to #2 tab and then drag the image down to the search box. The search box will get larger and say "Drop image here". Release the mouse to drop it and VIOLA!!! You get a page that tells you all the links that it appears at. The other secret though is to click on the link by the top picture that says "All sizes". Then you get to find a bigger or smaller one. Here is Lillith's only larger I call it picture stalking, I love that Google allows you to search like that. I especially love when I don't know what something is in a picture and I need to find the name or location of the content. I was recently looking for the location of a wallpaper I have, and I knew the original was not Orenburg Russia, turned out it was in Denmark. Sometimes Google rocks.
  14. And don't forget one of the biggest reasons that people get involved with religion and MLM's is, they are convinced (by someone or themselves) that this has a "higher" purpose or meaning than every other ordinary thing on Earth. Being involved in this gives their life meaning and purpose. For many, these things give people a sense of power or purpose that allows them to assume their lives are "better" or have more value than the rest of us nobodies. In American culture religion "makes" you "better" than other people, in some countries of the EU religion indicates a person who is a nut ball. People always think that stupid cannot be viral, but religion proves that it can be viral.
  15. I'm thinking that I should change my standard response when I meet new people and tell them what I do to: New Person: Oh! You're in graphic design! Can you create a — Me: No. Fuck off. You could always tell them you work for the IRS or you are a mortician, or even a used car salesman, they won't ask for favors and small talk would be kept to a minimum. Proctologist, might be a safe choice as well.
