  1. Hey Jess Thank you so much for the update. It's so good to hear about Mr ag_NO_stic. I remember early in your journey you were worried about the effect that your belief change may have on him and your marriage. You always had your head screwed on and your advice and outlook is sound for anyone to follow. Keep in touch LF
  2. Hi all. I don't think I've told my story in full here, so now is as good a time as any. It's fairly long, but thank you for reading in advance and I hope it helps somebody. My Story - From a pastors kid to an atheist. Religious History I was a Christian from birth for 32 1/2 years of my life. When I was born my parents were in a non denominational church which followed the teachings of a Pentecostal (Ex Baptist) divine healing preacher. Several years after I was born my parents left the church over doctrinal disagreements and started house meetings. This continued for some yea
  3. Just a note - I've deleted that post. We don't accept people advertising services here save Dr Marlene Winell. Thanks LF
  4. Welcome to religion. Now have you repented and asked the FSM to touch you?
  5. I keep a bible on my shelf. Some atheists: Why? Me: So I can show Christians when they are wrong about it.

  6. Stop. Just stop. The Simpsons is a TV show. A fricking cartoon TV show. Why would you take anything seriously in any TV show, let alone a satirical comedy cartoon show for kids? There is no need to rebut it because its a fricking TV show. Just... yeah, no. Stop watching stuff that upsets you. Stop watching stuff full stop if you need to. It's like I tell my mother: Stop freaking out about what's happening in the US. It doesn't matter. Even if they nuke us we can't do anything about it so stop worrying about it! Turn off the radio, stop reading social media, get off the
  7. Interesting point, I understand what you are getting at. However, my understanding of the D-K effect, in very simple terms has to do with people thinking they are much smarter than they really are. In effect they over estimate their intelligence or ability. I'm not sure if this is the psychological effect that is primarily in play with the above situation. I think what we are seeing is cognitive dissonance and denial similar to what one might find in a creationist, a flat earther, or anti vaxer for example. I'm not sure if anybody here has actually tried to explain evolution to a creationist?
  8. Ok so I did some research. Apparently it was not an attempt to equalize men and women according to the Rev that opened the prayer. It was a light pun at the end of the prayer in recognition of the record number of women coming into congress. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jan/05/a-woman-prayer-emanuel-cleaver-amen-critics Which if true highlights how quick we are to interpret and judge things in the worst possible light. That interpretation being that the guy is a dimwit who doesn't understand the meaning and origin of the word Amen. If he is to be believed p
  9. I don't often agree with Ben, smug little shit that he can be, but on this occasion I completely agree with him. The level of ignorance and lack of awareness to be able to say "Amen and Awomen" in public astounds me. Unless of course he is secretly an atheist and taking the mickey out of religion. As a person on the 'left' side of the political spectrum (if that concept even makes any sense) I'd like to disclaim those nut-bags. That's not left or progressive, it's just plain stupid.
  10. Wordpress.com is free. It also has paid options. Youtube is free, but requires creation of videos. It comes with potentially reaching a wider audience.
  11. Yes. I was surprised at his attitude considering his claimed monastic experience and revelations etc. Apparently he didn't read in the Bible that pride goeth before a fool. Or to love thy neighbor as thyself. Or to be humble and filled with the meekness of the spirit. I think he took his leading from the OT. "The Lord is a jealous and avenging God; the Lord is avenging and wrathful; the Lord takes vengeance on his adversaries and keeps wrath for his enemies"
  12. Lets refrain from attempting to web diagnose mental illness. Not every narsistic arsehole necessarily has a mental illness that precludes meaningful conversation. Sometimes an arsehole is just an arsehole.
  13. Alas, we morn the loss of Brother Mario. In the name of the father the son and the holy spook do we commend his forum profile. AMEN.
  14. Sure. I'm sure we will watch with great interest. Let me grab my popcorn. I also might grab a rum and coke.
