  • More About Me
    I was a christian for 25 years. Now I am a secular humanist and an atheist. I believe that human can, and has, learned to be good and godless. In fact, we are better now than we ever were.

      Victoria, Nanaimo, Duncan. Wherever I can get work really. I have spent a lot of time in that area and it is easily one of my favorite places on earth! Just never had a reason to live there before.

  2. I rescued an orphan kitten the other day. He's adorable!

      Ohhh, where did you find him?

    4. HolyGoat


      I found him at under some board at the yard where we were storing our backhoe for a few weeks at work. Alberta is pretty cold this time of year and I figured he probably wouldn't last long.

  3. Blah...being an atheist is really overwhelming me right now. I need to learn when NOT to discuss religion on facebook. Pro tip: never.

      A whole lot of stupid going on on Facebook. Sometimes I feel the same way.

      Walking away can be powerful sometimes

  4. Fuckin' grown-ass men talkin' about fairy tales like they're real. *sigh*

  5. Welcome Hunter! My advice, in the most general of terms, would be to ask as many questions as possible. Everyone here, while having different opinions, are an invaluble source. Glad you found your way here!
  6. I just want the fuck out of crazy religious shitfest that always seems to surround me.

      No actually. My community and the people I surrounded myself with as a christian. I don't mind the people, I just don't want to hear about their stupid religion any more.

  7. Welcome, Mrian! As you can probably tell, we are all very glad that you found your way here! I imagine you are already beginning to realize that you are not at all alone! I can empathize with some of your story. I volunteered wity tge high school youth at my church even during my deconversion and have been extremely quiet about my change in beleif so as to not adversely affect those kids. Shortly after my deconversion, my mom found out about it. I had been trying to keep it from her, at least for a while. She took it pretty hard. I would definitely suggest easing into it with fam8py ifbat all possible. Just my 2 cents, but I hope you realize that you are not alone and we are all here to support you!
  8. Welcome! I really sympathize with your story, mine is quite similar actually. So I really appreciate that you shared it! I wish you the best on your journey and I hope that I and the other members here can be of some help/support/encouragement to you during this transition! I especially feel for you in regards to your marriage. My wife is a christian as well and my recent deconversion has hit her pretty hard too. I look forward to hearing from you some more!
  9. I made the mistake of reading the comments section on the new John Oliver clip about the current refugee crisis. I hate people again.

    A Bit Of Venting

    Wow that is rough! I can relate on some level, as I have two mentally handicapped brothers, though they are both more than 10 years younger than I am, so the situation was never able to be similar. I can see how they could be like that if they were older than me and weren't on medication though. =( What you said about wanting him to "feel everything" really struck me though. That was how I felt about my depression for a very long time. I didn't want to be on medication because I thought it would be a lie or something. As though it would diminish a part of who I am. I am glad that you are sorting through all of this though! I hope you know it's ok to be feel angry about things, especially if you are actively dealing with that anger in a healthy way! Hugs!
