  • More About Me
    Recently became an ExC, but a doubter for years. Trying to figure things out. If I post something that is incorrect, please correct me, I will be forever learning, and am so new with thinking outside of the christian mindset.

  1. Thank you, everone, for your kind words and encouragement!
  2. My Mom died last March and just a few weeks later Dad started looking for a new sweetheart. I'm very sorry for your loss. My father passwed away before my son was born, and my mother passed a few months before my father-in-law died.
  3. My Mom died last March and just a few weeks later Dad started looking for a new sweetheart. They had been together for 53 years and had dated for 3 years before they married. At first, I was like, "What?" but then I came to realize that Dad is really old and doesn't have a lot of time and I also learned that he and Mom had talked about this many times and that she gave her blessing for him to marry again. Dad doesn't do well alone. (He's also a twin so he has never not been part of a pair.) Fortunately, after a couple false-starts with dating, he has found a woman who adores him and they a
  4. I have to agree. How many ectopic pregnancies or miscarriages have happened by natural occurance? Does not the almighty god love these children and want them to live and love him? If there were a god, this is his doing, these are his/her/its "abortions". Woman have a right to make the choice. Women have the right to make an informed decision with her doctor about what to do with her body. A doctor has the right to terminate the pregnancy to save a mother's life. The bible shit that was spewed to me (and as a xian pewed out of my mouth as well) is sameful. It is a woman's choice, and
  5. I just want to thank everyone for your encouraging words, I can’t tell you what this means to me. I don’t feel so alone, and I realize now that these things I’m feeling and am going through are normal. I look forward to future discussions as I re-educate myself and break free from the brainwashing of the cult of Christianity.
  6. Yeah, I've been looking in to that and saw they were actually deists when researching the xian claim that this somehow is a xian country because of the founding fathers..... even though they wrote in a clear separation of church and state! Always something that nagged at me, even in my xian days.
  7. And I really need to preview my posts for typos before I post them. Fuck.
  8. This is great. You no longer accept things just because you saw them. You are thinking for yourself and investigating to find the truth. Welcome to the world of free thinkers. We are a diverse bunch. And if in the end you decide something about Adams that I don't agree with we can still be pals because agreement just isn't that important. It's not like you are going to be punished by the Flying Spaghetti Monster for believing the wrong things. And don't feel bad if you occasionally fall back into old habits. It happens to all of us from time to time. The FSM scares the shit out
  9. Thank you, this helps fore than you may know... I need to remember it's a process. Christians force you to believe on the spot - say your prayer, dunk yourself in a pool of water, and magically you're a new person. Sheading those lies, well, I had hoped it would be that quick, but the deprogramming is going to take a lot longer than I thought.
  10. Ok, my wife talked me off the ledge, and said this might not be completely out of context, but I am still interested in hearing what everything things Adams is talking about in the full letter.
  11. So here I am, a new un-believer, soaking up as much research and reading as many books as I can get my hands on. I feel like a veil has been lifted from my eyes. But then this happens. I've read in many places on atheist web sites and in meme graphics this quote: And I think, oh, isn't that cool. I'm learning more and more about the US founding fathers and finding a lot of good, true information. So I look up the entire April 19,1817 letter to Thomas Jefferson here to learn more: http://nationalhumanitiescenter.org/pds/livingrev/religion/text3/adamsjeffersoncor.pdf A
  12. Yeah, she was doing the internet dating thing just months after her husband of 30 years died of a heart attack.
  13. New member here. Only recently have I confessed by unbelief, although I have doubted for much of my life. I've thought about some time what I would write here as a testimonial, and I've struggled with how to explain my life as a so-called believer. I just don't think I can. I've lost so many friends, isolated myself from the "evil" world, hurt so many people by my belief in this mystical notion of god that I'm still coming to terms with it, and still struggling to find out what it is I truly believe in, if anything. I'll start with who I am now. I'm a 37 year old dad and husband. I
