  1. In April, please join me and Bill in celebrating Chill The Fuck Out month...
  2. Always be careful who you bare it around. Could come back to bite you later.
  3. I’ve noticed that the quality of discussions seems to depend on whether @TheRedneckProfessoris involved. Make of that what you will..
  4. Glad you joined us. There’s a lot of good deconversion stories here, dating back years. Tons of good reading, especially in Pinned topics. Looking forward to hearing about your own deconversion. Were you raised Christian?
  5. Dammit this made me have impure thoughts. Downright sinful if that was still a thing.
  6. Glad you’re doing better: deconversion is often rough early on but it turns out that humans can actually function quite well without religious beliefs or gods, and you’re just the latest to experience that. Well, there’s a video for everything, isn’t there? It’s possible an asteroid could hit the earth: it’s happened before a few times in the 4,500,000,000 years the planet’s been around. But scientists, or astronomers, or whatever they call the people who track asteroids, have plotted the orbits of all the big ones and even the biggish ones that could take out big cities. I supp
  7. Sciency. . . but also somewhat Ranty at present. What to do, what to do?
  8. Poci, you would be wise to listen to Joshpantera’s words above. It’s good you are interested in hearing from the opposition side before deciding to become a Christian. You came to the right place for that. I don’t think anybody here intended to be mean to you, by the way: you may be a bit sensitive to people’s tones. If you were to take up his suggestion and engage in a discussion here, with you presenting the best arguments for Christianity and one or more of us making the case against, then if you decided that the case FOR Christianity made more sense, you could become a Ch
  9. I’m sure there are STORIES of people being raised from the dead. The old B&W Frankenstein and Dracula movies are great, but they’re just stories too. In reality, people do not come back from the dead, period. If you want to know why we no longer believe in Christianity or the Bible-god, then this recent post is a good summary of the main reasons... Christianity does not even come close to being demonstrably true. But plenty of people believe it anyway, just as plenty of people believe in Islam and other religions. That’s what faith is. If you want to bel
  10. Since there have been no cases where a human has been clearly shown to have returned to life after death, I’m convinced it is impossible. Now we know that the belief developed in certain quarters in the 1st and 2nd centuries CE that a man named Jesus had returned from death. And today hundreds of millions believe it. The belief also developed in other quarters in the 7th century that a man named Muhammad travelled from Jerusalem to Heaven on a winged horse. And today hundreds of millions believe that. So if you are inclined to believe in Christianity, I would ask you wh
  11. I should add that although I’ve never been to HEL, I’ve spent some very enjoyable days in SIN.
  12. Until 2017, Finnair operated flight 666 to HEL (Helsinki) from Copenhagen (CPH), sometimes on Friday the 13th. Those Scandinavians! Singapore Airlines operated a flight from SIN to HEL, but sadly it was not numbered 666.
  13. Hi fluffyapple, and welcome to the community. You’ve come to the right place! A lot of people over the years have been in exactly the same position you are in, and have gone through successful deconverison processes and now live happy and fulfilling lives as ex-Christians. I see no reason why you can’t do the same thing. I’d say a successful deconversion requires four things: firstly an openness to questioning Christianity and to the possibility that it is not true. Seems like you’re already there: most Christians never get even that far - good for you! Secondly, g
  14. The difference between Josh and his school buddies is this: he did the questioning, the research and the studying that convinced him that first Second Day Adventism and then later Christianity and theism, were not based on reality. The others were happy to party and to “sin” but didn’t do the work to ascertain whether their belief system was actually reasonable. So when they were done sowing their wild oats they slipped back into it. And probably raised their own kids with the same indoctrination they had received. It will always be a minority who will go to the trouble of questioning
  15. I don’t know if I can really add to what’s already been said, but I’ll add my two-cents’ worth. First of all, I’m sorry y’all are going through this. On the one hand it seems crazy that a family is on the brink of breaking up because of a bronze-age deity. On the other hand, your wife sees you as no longer the “godly man” she married and had kids with, and to a believer that’s a profound change. I doubt that concealing the main reason for your breakup is going to work. The truth has a way of coming out in the end. It does sound like your wife will have an ongoing relationship
