  1. Hi, sorry but I don't post here much anymore. I'm still a heathen. I just haven't got much time in my life with a full-time permanent job, and I'm also going back to get my MBA this fall on a part-time basis.

  2. Mmmm, I like your god.

  3. Been watching Stargate Atlantis season 5.

  4. Maybe. I don't know for sure right now. I'm a geek and a technophile but there are limits.

    I see you!
  6. I would agree with that. I'm probably going to remain agnostic unless some indisputable proof of a deity's existence is found. You never know when a spiritual group might turn into a Jim Jones-style cult. There are just too many wacky belief systems these days. I'm not saying they're all wacky, but better safe than sorry.
  7. The hell doctrine was a huge reason why I deconverted. I couldn't bring myself to believe any of it anymore. I just couldn't.
  8. I'm currently agnostic. I was raised Lutheran Mo. Synod. I've realized that the Bible is just a myth. I don't think there is a religion on this planet that isn't based on a myth, but some are more harmful than others. I researched Gnosticism for a while when I was deconverting, but found that I couldn't literally believe in it anymore than I could literally believe in anything else without evidence.
  9. Hello Mike, I'm an agnostic as well. I believe that it's impossible to prove whether a god exists, one way or the other. The JudeoChristian god is not god, of that I am certain. But if there is one, I find it hard to believe that it would care whether or not we worship it or not. The need for love and adulation is a human need. Something divine would be above that. My parents have been acting the same way. I think they think I will change my mind and find another church or something. Once a few years go by and I don't go to church except with them on Christmas, I think they
  10. Yeah, my parents are acting like that right now, too. When several years go by and I don't join another church, perhaps then they'll figure out that yes, this really is the path I am on, and accept it. At least, I don't live with them anymore. That would make it all the more harder.
  11. I wouldn't tell people at work you are Wiccan. There's just too much discrimination in the corporate world. Some companies will "lay people off" for not being Christian. They'll call it that cause they can't fire you technically unless you give them a reason to fire you, and they will use a different excuse during the next round of layoffs so you'll have no proof of anything to sue them with. Unless you work in a place where there are a lot of non-conformists, I wouldn't say anything at all. I tried to keep my mouth shut about being agnostic at my current job, but having a fundy cube m
  12. Right. Same here. I don't even feel like I can discuss my feelings with my family because we get into arguments whenever they start asking me what I think about religious stuff. It ends up with me having to use the "I'm sorry, but I really don't want to argue about this stuff right now" line.
