  1. Georgia, I was a very involved Christian for 47 years. I’m sure I understand the concept of faith. I’ve never regretted leaving the faith and I’ve never considered returning to the faith I left many years ago.
  2. Bro Jeff and Serenity Blue both struggled mightily whether to be Christians or not. I hope they are both at peace now. I’m very sorry to learn of Bro Jeff’s loss.
  3. There is a YouTube series called “Closer to Truth”. It’s about a scientists that wants to believe in God. He travels around the world, speaking with intellectuals, that believe in God, asking them why they believe in God. I’ve watched several of his videos and interviews with physicists, metaphysicians, genetics and other intellectuals with advanced college degrees and doctorates in science that profess a belief in God. So far, both he and I, remained unconvinced that any of them have uncovered a rational path to God. So far it seems a belief in God, aka faith, is what it appears to be. Belief without evidence. In other words some people just choose to believe God exists because they want God to exists. It appears education, or lack thereof, has little or nothing to do with belief in God.
  4. Why do Christians think their “beliefs” should be respected? Do Christians respect Mormon beliefs, Muslim beliefs, Hindu beliefs, Scientologist beliefs? I don’t think so, but they expect their beliefs to be respected and accepted by people that don’t share their beliefs. Why is that? I can respect a persons right to believe whatever they want, without respecting their beliefs.
  5. I doubt it, because that would require an actual miracle. It is kind of strange how God only communicates with one person and then only when they are alone. Hmm?
  6. You were fortunate. I was a member of a religious cult aka the Church of Christ. They successfully brain washed me. I was a true believer...until I wasn’t. It took 27 years for me to overcome my brainwashing. .
  7. Christians live in their own world. Facts, logic, reason, & science are irrelevant in their world. Their world is all about faith, trust, and obedience to the Word of God.
  8. The toilet paper manufactures have confirmed over and over there is no shortage of toilet paper. There are producing toilet paper at their normal capacity. Toilet paper is available on amazon and in chain stores in my area. Costco, the countries biggest seller of toilet paper and paper towels, is sold out in my area though, even though they limit customers to one package of each. Kroger only offers it as an online order with a minimum of a $35 purchase for other non paper items. They limit toilet paper purchase to 2 packages. If folks would just buy what they need there wouldn’t be a problem. I think the news media’s nonstop negative reporting Is fueling most of this panic buying. I wonder what cowboys and Indians, back in the Wild West days, wiped their butts with?
  9. Religion has achieved this protective barrier around their “beliefs”. It is an unspoken rule that people’s religious “beliefs” are not to be criticized, and under no circumstances ridiculed......."because that’s what they believe.” I can’t think of anything else society has set aside and declared that it cannot be criticized. It is somewhat amazing the declared and undeclared power religion has obtained on this planet. Even if their beliefs are obviously absurd and ridiculous it’s socially unacceptable to point that out in pubic. So when someone says a cracker turns into the actual body of Christ, during a communion ritual, it’s considered rude to even smile at such an absurd statement.
  10. Leaving your faith is a journey not an event. It’s often a long and sometimes treacherous road. And it’s not unusual for it to takes years to complete your travels and explorations. Perseverance and education are the key’s to extricating yourself from the grasps of religion.

    Sorry Women

    No apology was necessary, but if it makes you feel better......you’re forgiven.
  12. Mrs Geezer is still a Christian (Methodist) but no longer attends church services. She’s okay with me being a nonBeliever. Religion doesn’t come up much anymore. She still attends some of her church social functions and I’m okay with that.
  13. Say 10 Hail Mary’s and send me $50 and I’ll smooth it over with Jesus for ya. I promise all will be forgiven. (All transaction are final. No refunds or Exchanges) Prayer cloths are available for an extra $100 (doesn’t include local taxes or shipping and handling) Supplies are limited order now!
  14. How do you turn a believer into a non-believer? Make them actually read and study the Bible!
  15. Religion’s survival depends on making their adherents feel guilty & fearful. No believer can ever know for sure that they’re “saved” and that is by design. One can never do enough to feel safe and be certain they’re destined for heaven. For every verse in the Bible that offers hope and assurance, there is an offsetting verse that cast doubt and uncertainly. Doubt and uncertainty makes the faithful work harder and give more money in the hope that they can somehow please the God they worship and fear. Congrats for figuring out their game and freeing yourself from their clutches.
