    Thank you all for the recommendations, I'll have a look in those ones ! And yes, Glendalough is definitely one of my favourite place if we were not on lockdown, I probably would go have a walk there.

    Hi ! I just find the coincidence too big. Especially the fact that they use the same method of calculating. But it could be fear talking as well, a kind of "I am not sure if it is significant but what if it is?"... Let's be honest, I have a huge fear of going to hell, especially because it is said to be eternal, that causes me lots of anxiety. Somebody mentioned about looking for a psychiatrist that knows how to deal with the cult-related traumas, I tried to look for one, but I am based in Ireland, and I could not find so far, I believe because we are such a tiny island it might not be that common. Thank you all for the replies, I really appreciate. I hope to find peace soon, I have been on this path for almost 2 years, some days I am losing hope, some others I am okay. For example yesterday was a good day, where I could reason that this calculation was not proving divine inspiration. Today I am on the low side again and anxious about it. Kind of a roller coaster. Meds help to keep going in those low days.

    Hi all, My name is Marie and I posted here a few times already. I really feel like I need some support... I have been struggling with the same issue for more than a year regarding christianity. I do believe there is thousands of evidence that proves christianity is not true. But... There is this thing (that I already posted about) that keeps me stuck in the fear that it might be true. The thing is a calculation from genesis 1:1 that finds pi and the same calculation in john 1:1 finds e. If you google pi and e in the bible it will appear straight away. I was never into numerology when I was a christian, and it's since I have been in the process of leaving the faith that I discovered numerology and that it frightens me. This thing of pi and e found in those 2 verses that are so closely linked theologically... I mean, it is just hard for me to see it as a simple coincidence, it seems too big. I am on antianxiety and antidepressant medications because of this situation. I qlso have a psychiatrist. I have been on the path of leaving the faith because I was afraid I committed the unforgivable sin. So it has become vital for me to debunk this numerology thing, so that I can live normally again and not overwhelmed with constant anguishes and depression. Can anyone help me debunk this thing mathematically? Prove that it is not that rare? Please do not just tell me "numerology is bullshit", that does not help me, and I really need help and I am really hopeful I can find some here... Thank you Take care everyone
  5. Hello everyone, I was wondering if there were people who also had difficulties with leaving Xtiannity, I feel empty ever since I left the faith. I was born Catholic, always believed in god, but was not practicing the faith on a daily basis (as many Catholics in my country). I became born again at the age of 18, stayed 7 years, left a year ago after studying the discrepancies of the bible. But I have an emptiness inside of me now... Christianity gave me a purpose in life, a hope, answers to questions about life (why are we here? What happens after death? Etc...). Now that I know that it is not true, all those questions came back, but even stronger than before being a born again Xtian. Does this emptiness leave after a good amount of time? If you lived the same feelings that I have now, how did you get out of it? Thank you very much.

    Hi all, I'd just like to have somebody else's opinion on this: A guy named Vernon Jenkins found a calculation with the first verse of Genesis that gives him pi to 5 digits (rest is wrong, and he does not find 3.1415 but 3.1415×10^45). Anyway no big deal here because his calculation is too random (thousands of other way to calculate something from a verse) What is confusing is that he did the exact same calcul for John1.1 and found the constant e to 4 digits. As the verses both talk about "in the beginning", the verses are linked theologically. Opinions? Thank you.
