  1. Further proof that no amount of reason, logic, or evidence will reach a mind that deeply poisoned by Christianity.
  2. As one of my favorite podcasters once said, people think that the power of christ is a real superpower.
  3. My own damn common sense, it would seem. I was hardly "fully converted" in the first place. My stint in Christianity was a two year college phase. Realizing how hard it was to reconcile the fantasy with what I knew to be reality. None of it fits together. Fuck prayer. Try telling that to someone indoctrinated from childhood though. Thank goodness that wasn't my situation. Sheer dumb luck.
  4. I'm sure many here wish it were wholly possible. There does not appear to be a high success rate unfortunately. The biggest issue is that religion is specifically designed to trap believers, when you see how it affects people psychologically. It preys on the human psyche in the worst ways imaginable.
  5. I can see the kids in my old college ministry doing something like this thinking it counts as evangelism.
  6. "UPDATE: The building passed the fire marshal's inspection! Praise god! Thank you so much for your prayers!" Like seriously, this was no act of god. It was human work of properly prepping a building for inspection. Fuck the fuck off.
  7. So I still sometimes browse my old church's facebook page, to amuse myself with whatever has recently been posted. The church is a 22-year-old mobile church (renting school auditoriums for sunday services) finally getting its own permanent building. Tonight, they posted asking for prayers for the fire marshal's inspection in the morning. They've been doing the same over the last few months for all the other permits and inspections required for a building. Isn't it kind of amusing that they want such normal practices that are likely to get passed to be prayed over? Do th
  8. Was going to say exactly this. They will fit anything to mean whatever they need it to mean so as to fit in with their god logic.
  9. The sign of a believer who knows he has run into some unanswerable and/or unjustifiable questions.
  10. Jeez, Joe. You never put it together that the hell you believe in is a place where the unbelievers burn and suffer and bleed and rot in anguish for all eternity while the good little believers like you get to sing songs all day while ignoring that the god you worship sends people to such a place even though he "loves" them? Or maybe it's just a control method preachers use so they can maintain their careers of selling fictitious bullshit. Why else would the church need money, even though god can apparently accomplish nigh impossible tasks?
  11. "Great discussing with you all!" Yes, it must be great to think yourself unaccountable for the tripe that you have written regarding women as property and the discipline of children. The hoops you have to go through to justify your god's actions and words. It must be exhausting, the mental gymnastics. It's almost as if...it doesn't actually hold any salt in the real world.
  12. Of course, you'd rather dodge the issues at hand than confront what your religion is about. Anything to keep your god on his pedestal and protect his ego from blame and bruising.
  13. Ohhhhh. I see what you're saying. So because the scenario wouldn't come up where you would greet someone with remarking that you'd stone kids, that automatically means that this basis of what I was saying, that you could now tell someone there exists a situation in which you'd stone kids, is invalidated. I gotcha now. My mistake.
  14. So you would actually be able to say now, "Hey, guys. What's up? Yeah, I'd stone my children if god was adamant in telling me to." I hope somewhere in you that you realize how revolting that is.
  15. It actually is that simple, what buffetphan asked. Would you stone your own children if you thought god gave you a compelling reason to do so? A simple yes or no. Don't duck around the question. It doesn't matter what that compelling reason is. If you were given one, would you do it?
  16. You came to an ex-christian website. Clearly, you don't understand what that means. It means that the Christian way of proving things (i.e., faith and scripture) does not apply because we have already been there and found those proofs to be extremely faulty at best. Which is why BAA is going to such lengths to show that to you. I applaud his patience. My recognizing your belief in your god does not validate the existence of said god. That seems to be what you were trying to spin with your comment there.
  17. You say this as if it is a given that your god exists to be mad at in the first place.
  18. I'm in somewhat of the same boat. I wonder how much my wife's church people (I don't go anymore) are telling her to double down on the godly presence around me. She's starting to have bible studies in our home, as if having more of it around me is going to bring me back in the fold. It could be worse, I guess.
  19. #18, #19, and #20 are the best/worst. They are hilarious and nauseating, in equal amounts.
  20. They'd probably tell you something in the vein of "We, in our feeble human minds, cannot fathom the ways of god. We have the tendency to forget when we get caught up in the minute details of our lives." Anything to avoid considering that they may actually be morally averse to something their god did. And even merely disagree with him.
  21. I agree. After a certain point, there's nothing you can do to get someone to stop believing what they believe. Any goading on your part may result in damage to a relationship. As hard as it is, you can't live your entire life going mad at how people can believe such obvious bologna. You won't have any time to live for yourself.
  22. This, this, this, this, this. Or especially when the single guys were deathly afraid of appearing to favor one particular woman by talking to her slightly more than the others. Having to pray away those thoughts (that they probably didn't have; they were probably just talking) so as to lead a "pure" non-favoritism walk. What a horrible, self-hating way to live when it's sinful somehow to even befriend someone in a platonic way.
  23. I had an interesting conversation with my ex-pastor last night. Anyone who has seen my post about him emailing me for money will know who he is. I agreed to meet with him for ice cream last night to see if I could still talk to him as a friend even though I'd stopped attending church. I was half right, half wrong. Once we had exhausted "catching up" topics, he pounced on my thought processes for having left church. He is a younger pastor (33, I think), so I at least didn't have the problem of speaking to someone twice to thrice my age. I had explained to him why I stopped having fa
  24. Maybe not fun exactly, but per Logical Fallacy's point: once I remember I'm not going to get anywhere with Stranger, it is still amusing in a sad way to see him fall over himself repeatedly in his "reason."
