    Pastor's kid, survivor of an epic faith crisis, now agnostic atheist. Trying to figure out how to make up for so much time of living for others and not doing what I really want to.

    FYI- Not true guys. Horus born from goddess mother Isis and Krishna was the 8th child. Dionysius was the son of Zeus and a human woman, Semele. Please just... let's not make the same mistake as many chrisian do and blindly abide by stuff we read without checking our facts.

    confused and conflicted!

    Girl we seem to have a lot in common... De-converting and in touch with christian people who don't know about it, non christian analytical boyfriend to whom I rant a lot in frustration about ex christian stuff because he's the only person I feel free talking to... the doubts about prayer. It would be nice to be able to hope that it will work, but it will probably not. For me, the worst part isn't even knowing that prayer is unreliable, it's... imagine if I pray to be healed and I get healed, what does that mean? Why? Why me? What about the millions of people that pray to God every day to be cured of more serious illnesses and still get worse or die? This is also why I stopped saying grace before eating long ago. ''Dear God, thank you for the food you've provided me, and please don't forget about those in need, amen.... wait no no amen, I shouldn't have to remind you about those in need, you know it all! Why do I have food and so many kids die of starvation every second in 3rd world countries? Why do you choose to give me this food and not them? Doesn't this mean that you treat humanity arbitrarly and let innocent people die? Because if you're not the one responsible for their starvation, by that logic you're not the one responsible for my food provision and then I don't have to say grace. You know what, keep your stupid food!!! Not hungry now!!!'' 🀣
  7. And I thought I had seen every possible stupid internet article today.

    Hypocricy

    If only we could get a dollar every time something like that happens to us 🀣🀣
  9. For those who were brought up in Christian / conservative religious houses, probably more so for children of pastors or worship leaders. If you could ''magically'' change your past, would you trade your strict christian home for a normal, non religious home? How do you recon your life would have been different then, and how would that change how your life is now?

    Hello fellow heathens!

    I know Sam Harris, I'll have to check out Daniel Dennent. Thank you
  11. Thank you for reading. For me, this quote Bart Ehrman used in God's Problem ''put to ease'' all those contradictive feelings about suffering: From the brothers Karamazov. "Listen: if everyone must suffer, in order to buy eternal harmony with their suffering, pray tell me what have children got to do with it? It’s quite incomprehensible why they should have to suffer, and why they should buy harmony with their suffering. Is there in the whole world a being who would have the right to forgive and could forgive? I don't want harmony. From love for humanity, I don't want it. I would rather be left with the unavenged suffering. I would rather remain with my unavenged suffering and unsatisfied indignation, even if I were wrong. Besides, too high a price is asked for harmony; it's beyond our means to pay so much to enter on it. And so I hasten to give back my entrance ticket, and if I am an honest man I am bound to give it back as soon as possible. And that I am doing. It's not God that I don't accept, Alyosha, only I most respectfully return him the ticket."
  12. This very week. In Spanish, ''Say grace'' is the same phrase for ''Say thank you''. I went to my parents' house and my brother had cooked Paella. My dad asked ''have you already said thank you? (='said grace' in Spanish 'dar las gracias'). I looked at my dad, then I turned to my brother ''Thank you Danny''. And carried on eating.
