  1. Hey, weird, wild stuff, man! Glad ya got the hell outta Dodge.
  2. Oh yeah, I thought that the "Tower of Babel" story was pretty fishy, even when I was a wee lad. Oddly entertaining as a "just-so" story about the origins of language, but it exposes the so-called "lord of creation" as a paranoid, petty little twit, doesn't it?
  3. Your "preacher and the witches" story is amazing! What utter craziness! It takes a special type of person to come up with that type of brazen lie. I wonder what he was thinking?
  4. I agree! Firing seems a bit extreme. Just holding his views up to ridicule is fine.
  5. I remember chapel talks at David Lipscomb high school and college where the speaker basically eviscerated an entire religion within fifteen minutes. Not much respect for differing views, for sure!
  6. I'm going with "batshit insane" as the best descriptor of his mental faculties.
  7. You don't need to erase your memories. Just make sure to make friends with people who approach life from a non-christian perspective, read books dedicated to science and rationality, go to interesting movies, watch some good nonreligious documentaries. And try to have a hearty laugh or two every day! Don't take things too seriously, try to get some distance between your current self and your previous set of beliefs. Ya know, stuff like that......
  8. The bible is a collection of myths, just-so stories, and propaganda that was written by a motley group of men over the course of several centuries. Historically speaking, it is one of the most influential books ever. There are some facts in there, interspersed with fanciful exaggerations and outright lies by men who sought to concoct a religion (or several religions in succession). Some perhaps were sincere, while others merely sought a means with which to control others' lives. It must be studied critically, and should never again be seen as the inerrant word of a god.
  9. Wow! I think I may have forgotten how sooper-dooper Pharisaical the Church of Christ can be. I was there, but not really so "churched-up", myself. Thanks for posting; that reminds me how crazy-legalistic COC'ers can be!
