How Some Theologians Realized There Is No God

Recommended Posts

Interesting and informative article. I put it in the Den in case any who still believe might want to take their observations to task.  https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/ex-clergy-explain-how-they-realized-there-is-no-god?utm_content=inf_11_3687_2&utm_source=wildhair&utm_campaign=fijifrost&tse_id=INF_40755d90249511e7ab1b4bd69f1788b7

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...



Excellent read! Thanks for the post! :)

Wow, one of these guys was in Self-Realization Fellowship. That's what my parents belonged to, and I was sort of into it for a while.

 

It's an interesting article. I think the writer cuts out a good deal of the thinking that went into these mens' decisions. So the pared-down result makes it seem a bit as though they just found religion too much of a pain and an effort. But good to read about such stories. I hope these guys find decent jobs.

I got the impression that they were angry at god and just wanted to sin.  Fucking savages.

That's what they all say - until it happens to THEM.
