  1. Thanks for this topic! It's an issue that's been on my mind a lot lately. I love animals, I am also a pet owner. With the advances of science, and being able to learn more about animal emotions ect., eating meat is a bit of a dilemna for me (as well as negative impact on the enivorment). I ask myself, would I be able to hunt for my own food, kill and eat it? I can honestly say, no, I don't believe I would be able to kill another living creature. Hell, I feel bad if I have to smoosh a spider! So it is hard for me to justify eating meat, and sometimes I consider going vegetarian. I recognize tha
  2. I have a random mish-mash of alternative and indie songs here. A Perfect Circle (Alt Rock) Gravity [Thirteenth Step]- Choosing to live despite struggling and being lost. A Perfect Circle (Alt Rock) A Stranger [Thirteenth Step]- During my deconversion, this song was almost a one-sided conversation to god. Its how I thought of it. A Perfect Circle (Alt Rock) The Noose [Thirteenth Step]- My interpretation, is speaking to someone in the faith. A Perfect Circle (Alt Rock) Judith [Mer De Noms]- Anger at a believer who is suffering but still chooses to praise god when they cannot see how god s

  4. Thanks so much befuddled! I am acutally currently studying for a Master's in Art Therapy! I you have questions about it feel free to ask me! This was for one of my classes where it explored different methods of art therapy. The art that we did would be examples of what clients would do... but much of it was sort of like therapy for me in a sense haha. Glad this post inspired you! Oh you're going to be sorry you offered after I keep bugging you. nah, it's fine, i have no problem helping out aspiring art therapists Thanks, directionless I like the scales too... the effect

  6. Thanks violet! I ended up throwing the entrails straight into the garabge. Thanks Human!! This type of art is called "Book Art",there are many lovely examples online if you google it. I had to look at a bunch of book binding and folding techniques because I pretty much had to learn to do it from scratch as well...so I'm not sure how well I would do at teaching xD. Book Art comes in many forms, some of it is more sculptural, some of it goes more page by page like mine... I'm really glad you found my work inspiring though!
  7. I'd thought I share this here. For one of my art therapy classes we were to create an artistic book documenting some point in our lives. I chose my deconversion because it changed everything for me. I created an accordian fold book. This is the cover of the book. I painted and glued paper to seem like scales, or a snake shedding its skin. I wanted to keep with the snake-like imagery throughout. I cut a window to peer into the inside. The cover was actually made out of my old bible. I tore the insides out and then painted over it, to make it into something else. It was very cathartic haha.

  12. Hey all, So for one of my classes I want to write my research paper about the negative effects religion can have have on pyschological development. I am trying to find peer-review academic articles, except I have to do a bit of digging because it doesn't seem like a very studied topic. Does anyone know of any studies done in this area you can point me to? Thanks.
  13. It's funny to me, since the bill has been vetoed, how many xians are throwing hissy fits and are like "but what about OUR rights??? You're discrimnating against us!!! Waaaaah!"
  14. So, it's been a few years since I feel like I have fully decinverted and finally put the relgion behind me. There was a brief time where I was intrested in the supernatural, but eventually I became an atheist. However, I feel there is still part of me that needs some sort of connection to the spiritual. Even though I don't believe in the supernatural, or anything like that. For a while this really bothered me, because it felt like a betrayal to myself. I don't know if this has to do with my emotional personality, or maybe I am trying to connect back to my childhood sense of magic, that was tak
  15. So did anyone actually watch it? I avoided it because my blood pressure was going up just from reading the tweets from it. My overall impression was that most people thought it was a stupid debate to have, but the fundies who were on Ham's side found flaws in everything Bill Nye was saying. I feel like this debate was more detrimental then anything else, beacause the fundies are whining and clinging to their beliefs more tightly.
