  • More About Me
    I deconverted in Autum 12, and I seek the company of those who have gone before me, for association and understanding. I'm basically a light-hearted type. I like to think critically and discuss ideas - political, theological, jurisprudential.

    When I am discussing a serious topic, I deal with issues in a logical manner. A position should be built on consistent arguments, and based upon fixed premises. That can sometimes seem cold to others, who may wish to base arguments on emotions. But, as Richard Dawkins has said, I don't care about how something makes you feel, I care about what is true.

  1. It seems to me like it is all a matter of perspective. To the average Syrian child or the average Iraqi child, the 'Christian' Americans with their bombs probably look like far worse terrorists. The fact that the bomb that killed their mother was intended for someone else, and that she was 'collateral damage' is unlikely to make them feel any kinder towards the Americans. The propaganda about Christian crusaders thus has another receptive child. And so the cycle of violence continues.
  2. Yeah, support for Romney always baffled me. I wish someone has asked him if he wears magic underwear. I also wish people would hammer Trump harder about his lies about being a Christian.
  3. First I agree with Margee. You have done well to deconvert at 20. It may seem now like you've misused a lot of your youth, but you'll soon come to realise that you really haven't. You're very fortunate! Welcome to the real world I would say, take it slowly. You don't necessarily have to have a big coming out event if you do not want to. Personally, I told a few close friends gradually, and eventually told my mum and dad (I've never told my grandparents). What I would say is, some people can suffer from telling people, even being kicked out of the house by family members, so if y
  4. Have you ever noticed that God is dog spelled backwards. God is the opposite of dog. Cat is the opposite of dog. God is a cat. Just a thought.
  5. If you think that this sort of logic is going to bother a Christian, you got another thing coming.
  6. I blame the schools. And the government. And religion. And wilful ignorance.
  7. "Putting God back in schools" I hate that phrase. What they mean is requiring teachings to lead children in prayer.
  8. It blows my mind how that doesn't matter to many on the religious right when it comes to politicians. They endorsed McCain, despite the fact that he was not a church-goer, but they labeled Obama a Muslim, even though he attended church regularly. You expect truth from people who live a lie? Nope.
  9. I would say that everything I learned and experienced during my time as a Christian was in a way a necessary component of my deconversion. There was though, as specific period of about 3-4 months from August 2012 - November 2012 when the process really happened. By the end of that year I was no longer a believer. However, dealing with the fallout of that deconversion took much longer. In fact, I am probably still dealing with it in ways that I am not concious of. But, I feel much better these days than I have for a long time.
