    I'm an ex-christian who recently "came out" to my family. I'm now working to hold my own in their presence without being too hard on them.

  1. Wait, you mean I won't be rule my own private island even though I sincerely want to? Damn. Great post
  2. I think this one is really rampant. Among christians there's a strong distrusts of scientists. The media jumping the gun on posting the results of inconclusive scientific studies adds to this. As such, most christians have a view that when science doesn't mesh with what they want to believe, then most likely someone made a mistake and in a few years they'll be changing their minds anyway. Scientists invented computer chips which allow fundys to spread baloney on Facebook. That's sort of the point, they pick and choose what science to believe (like they pick and choose scripture)

  4. Yeah, I was simply astounded by how poor their arguments are when I started reading them. I really had to stop because I found it so hard to read something so devoid of fact.
  5. This one is just weird... i think she wants to have secks with cheesus:
  6. I haven't been around much, but I think that's because I've become a lot more comfortable. I've become the honey badger... I just don't give a shit about christian's whining anymore.

  7. Because men could never figure that out without scripture to tell them to.....
  8. Thank you, Akheia. I think I should clarify, though. I don't think I lost my fear of death due to being miserable (though I was) and wanting to die (which I didn't), but rather because I came to the conclusion that God wouldn't punish me when I knew I was being a good person. Later when I stopped believing in Hell that was strengthened even more.
  9. This is a beautiful entry, Akheia. Very moving. Fear of death is interesting to me. I remember having a fear of death, but it was long ago. I was in elementary school, and my mother had taken to watching Pat Robertson every night. He was on TV talking about how if you're not born again you'd burn in Hell. It terrified me. That night I laid in bed and couldn't sleep for fear that I'd die that night and go straight to hell. I got out of bed, and crying I demanded that I be baptized ASAP (we were part of a denomination that doesn't baptize babies, but waits until the individual is "ready"). I was so upset that my mom called our minister, and he told her how to baptize me herself in our bathtub.That took away my immediate fear of death, though the fear of hell if I was "bad" remained. After my mom met my insane step father when I was in the 7th grade, and I went through several years of "religious torture", I lost my fear of hell. I'm not sure when the time was, but at some point it just went away. I also find myself not mourning much when others pass away. My brother died from suicide, my grandfather died, my step father died. I didn't cry for any of them. I don't know if that's good or bad. I don't think I'm cold and heartless... I definitely have pity for the living in bad situations, and kittens and cuteness brings a smile to my face... but I don't pity the dead, because I know there's nothing left of them now.
