  1. Thank you very much, I really appreciate your advise. I wonder whether you'd mind to read the response I just posted to MOHO's post? Does that make it any different?
  2. It's a bit complicated. I am 22 and totally financially independent. I currently live alone, well in a flatshare. But my mom's recently being diagnosed of something I'd rather not describe, but she will need surgery and bed rest, and she may not be able to take care of herself for a couple of months. I love my family with everything else. Right now they live in a bad house, a house that is not fit for habitation by a disabled person. My two brother still live with my parents, but with my mum not working money will get bad. And she needs a better house for the recovery period.
  3. Hi guys, With the new year come new dilemmas. I have had a relationship with a man that lives in another country (with regular visits) for the last 2 years.We have decided we want to move in together, I want to be the one moving abroad. It's an exciting change of environment and I will be with the person I love, also have job opportunities. The problem is, my parents don't know about any of this. I never told them because they are strong conservatives. I have discussed not wanting to be in Christianity anymore with them, but nothing about the relationship (they also expect me to b
  4. Literally ordered it on amazon a few days ago! Always wanted to watch it!
  5. Hmmm it's from a song by My Chemical Romance
  6. Oh oh me me me! I know this one pastor!! He prayed because he wanted to set an example for us! Lmao I had to . Oh sweet indoctrination.
  7. 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.
  8. ''It's really quite pleasant, except for the smeeell!!''
  9. 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 cu
  10. If only we could get a dollar every time something like that happens to us
  11. 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?
  12. I know Sam Harris, I'll have to check out Daniel Dennent. Thank you
  13. 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 rath
  14. I havent' told my family yet. Since i moved out of my parent's house, our relationship has become so much bearable that I am kinda sad that it's going to end. Plus I also have to tell them about my atheist boyfriend... O.o
  15. Could I have it too please? Thanks.
  16. Wow... I wish more bands were as transparent. Does anyone buy Switchfoot anymore?? lol.
  17. Don't worry, I belonged to a ''libera'' denomination and still feel as outraged about all the misogynist content of the bible. Totally agree.
  18. Being so aware that I could never believe again even if I tried, which meant that I could never participate in a lot of the activities my family wants to participate- because religion is involved in most gatherings.
  19. Wow, must have been harsh, makes me wonder whether I should wait so long to tell my family that they find out themselves :/
  20. Please listen to Faith Marie- Antidote... it's just awesome...
  21. I would tell them that this is a clear anecdotal fallacy, they are using pinpointed examples and not concrete evidence to support their argument. To which they would probably reply with an appeal to emotions (''But we are talking about people you met at church, don't you care about them? They LOVED you as a child!!) AHAHAH.
  22. I think just plain old introspection. I did talk to my boyfriend about momentary urges to pray- like, for something to happen. He told me ''pray to yourself''. ''Please, Axelle, let's make this happen''.
