  1. I won't shed a single tear for this hatemongering asshole. He filled my childhood and teenage years with terror because of those fucked up little tracts of his that demonized innocent things and people.https://boingboing.net/2016/10/24/rip-jack-chick-father-of-the.html
  2. This one by Fear Factory describes how I felt when i was struggling with my faith back in 2007.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU0HxcXnX7U
  3. I've found a better rebuttal to the "Thaw" video than Dusty's. The Flaw:Correcting The Thaw
  4. Maybe I'm just too nice, but old Dusty here failed when he started using the ad hominems. Calling these kids pieces of shit and motherfuckers. And yet he's got the gall to say that he understands that these kids were indoctrinated by their parents. Umm, Dusty, if you want to try to reach the kids, why don't you try to explain why they're wrong instead of carpet bomb cussing them.
  5. The biggest problem I have with the God of the bible is this. He creates the first two humans. He gives them free will. Then he plants a tree , that if they eat it's fruit, it will give them knowledge of good and evil. Then he tells them not to eat it or they'll die. Now remember, he's given them free will. So they're curious which was also a trait he gave them, so they give into their curiosity.(He also knows that he's designed them to where if he tells them not to do something, they'll be more likely to do itReverse Psychology.) And Jehovah comes down and pitches a fit. Throws them out of Eden. So, then he creates two innocent beings, then sets them up for not just a fall but THE FALL. What Jehovah basically did was put a box of poisoned candy in front of two children. Even if the God of the Bible does exist, he's an asshole and I've no desire to worship him. I sometimes wonder if maybe there is a god, but if there is, I'd expect it to be the real thing, not some being who acts like a spoiled child who gets angry if he doesn't get his way. If there's a god, a supreme being, it would have to transcend any and all of the frailties humans have. Otherwise,it's not a god, it's a creation of weak, flawed humans.
  6. In my case, death fills me with dread, because I've wasted so much of my life, and there's not enough time to accomplish all the things I want to do and experience before I die.(I'm 46, and even if I live to a healthy 90, I don't know if that's enough time.) I don't know if I'd want to live forever, but I'd just want to be able to live until I got bored with it,and then lay down to the big sleep.
  7. Misquoting Jesus by Bart Ehrman, and a lot of soul searching led me to deconvert in August 2007. I went from believing in the abrahamic god, to believing in a deist god. Watching this video by Philhellenes in July 2010 was what made me an atheist.
  8. I'd have to agree with you. I'd choose somewhere between C and D myself. In a sense, being in heaven would be worse, because you'd be scared shitless constantly, that Yahweh would think you weren't praising him enough and toss you into hell to burn with all the unsaved.(Similar to the idea of the anticipation of death is worse than death itself.) But yet, here;s something to consider. What if the reason Yahweh sends the unsaved to hell, is because he made a major fuck up when he created the human soul, and it's completely indestructible, something even he can't destroy? Remember you can't die in hell, so it's possible after long enough, you'd get used to it. And if there's anything humans are known for, it's adaptation to the most harsh conditions and environments. (Here's an amusing take on how the damned could utterly piss God off. If you refuse to complain of your suffering, he gets no satisfaction.) Maybe hell is more a prison than a place of punishment, because since he can't totally kill the damned, he's afraid of them. Afraid that they might figure out a way to overthrow or even kill him. (Some of the physicists might figure out a way to break out of hell.)
  9. Ask and ye shall receive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSwG9Tojg9I
  10. Someone needs to write a book called"I'm Not Mean Enough To Be A Christian." which details all the biblical atrocities, and all the other nastiness past and present day committed in "The Name of Jesus." I didn't become an ex-christian because I stopped believing in god(that came later), but because I could no longer stomach the idea of eternal damnation and a vengeful god.
  11. Welcome to the forums Antari! What may work for you, if you're strong enough in your unbelief, is to commit the so-called unpardonable sin in front of them. The one that would make it useless for them to continue to try to save you. Say very clearly" I deny the Holy Spirit." That should be enough to make most of them give up.
  12. Den, I haven't watched the video yet,( I will a bit later), but there's a video by Youtube Atheist Aron-Ra abut beneficial mutations that have shown up in modern humans.
  13. The anime and video game geeks among us should get a huge kick out of this. https://www.youtube....h?v=jxLBKeIWIHU This is their website:http://suidobashijuko.jp/
  14. You folks my age or older might remember this Geraldo special from the mid-80's during the height of the "Satanic Panic" back then. Some of you guys might get a laugh out of how ridiculous it is in retrospect, but you folks who still are struggling with hell and devil fears should probably not watch.
  15. Pssst! Just between you and me... The real reason the dust cloud vanished is because of Galactus. See, when he's not devouring the life force of planets, he's snorting space dust and getting high as fuck. That's the real reason Norrin Radd, the Silver Surfer quit being his herald. He got tired of hearing Galactus say "I'm Galactus bitch!" before he ate a planet. The more you know...
  16. Now if I understand this correctly, the Higgs Boson is what gives subatomic particles their weight and mass. If physicists prove it's existence beyond a shadow of a doubt, I wonder if a few years down the road we'll see the Higgs Boson Diet on the bestseller list.
  17. Speaking of Godzilla.... Aron-Ra uses the character to illustrate why creationism is complete bullshit.
  18. Rank, here's an article you and your wife may want to look at. It's 100 reasons to not have children. 1. You will be happier and less likely to suffer from depression. 2. (Assuming you get married),you will have a happier marriage. 3. You will have the capacity and time for meaningful, engaged, quality adult relationships. 4. You will be able to save for a comfortable retirement. 5. You are more likely to be an engaged and involved aunt or uncle because you are not jaded and worn down by your own kids. (Here's the other 95 reasons) http://childfreedom.blogspot.com/2009/03/top-100-reasons-not-to-have-kids-and.html
  19. This is my Facebook page for my heretic side.(I'm still in the closet as an Ex-C.) http://www.facebook.com/tabula.rasa.7549
  20. Hey guys. While browsing Youtube, I found some cool videos that a science lab has uploaded, explaining scientific concepts, oftentimes with fun experiments. Here's a sample: Here's the lab's channel:http://www.youtube.com/user/jeffersonlab?feature=results_main
  21. This film came out in the mid-1970's when there was quite a bit of interest in near death experiences. I don't remember if I saw this one or not when I was a kid.. Has anyone here watched it, and what did you think? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSHiZa2b2gQ
  22. Were I a New Yorker, I'd have two words for him: FUCK YOU. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbf_myV9IvA&feature=related Yes, drinking a lot of sugary soda does contribute to obesity, but it should be the consumer's choice as to what they eat and drink and how much or how little.
