Hello new unbelieving friends! I hope it’s Ok if I post one or 3 of my posts from newspaper religious forums. I hope that you would find them interesting.
Phil Greer aka acrowley


Read the bible with a free mind,

Freethinker; A person who forms opinions about religion on the basis of reason, independently of tradition, authority, or established belief.

If I am thinking independently of tradition, authority or established belief what do I think about the following bible verse?

This is what the Lord of hosts has to say: 'I will punish what Amalek did to Israel when he barred his way as he was coming up from Egypt. Go, now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has under the ban. Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and asses.' (1 Samuel 15:2-3 NAB)


If I knew nothing whatsoever about the bible or its god I would think that whoever this Lord of hosts person is he is an evil person that has just ordered mass murder.

However because I do know a little about the bible and peoples belief in god or gods I see something else revealed in this verse. If this ordered massacre did really occur the prophet Samuel told King Saul to commit mass murder as ordered by god.

Well, again thinking with a free mind and knowing that there is no evidence whatsoever for god nor has there ever been what I see is two people plotting a revenge mass murder.

The unbelievable excuse that they offer is that an invisible being has ordered them to do it.

It’s this same kind of delusional thinking that resulted in the mass murder of 9-11. The only difference is that the modern mass murders had bigger weapons.

God doesn’t exist however belief in god has resulted millions of innocent people being murdered over the centuries.

You are what you believe you are. Many are part of a cohesive like-minded belief. Some are on the outer fringes. These are the majority. They say they are part of the belief so as not to be thought of as a non-believer. There is strength and safety in numbers.

There are different beliefs in different places. If you are born in one place you will be part of whatever the belief is in that place. If you are born somewhere else you believe what that group believes.

The most important thing is to believe what the group believes. What your group believes. The true believers believe that what their group believes is right and what the other groups believe is wrong. There is no grey area with a true believer. There is right and there is wrong. There is no in-between. Your group is right. Every other group is wrong.

In the end it is only belief. There is nothing else;
There is nothing else. Belief is all there is.

I have to admit it, Christians aren’t my favorite people. They seem to think they are in some private little club. This club has its own little ceremony’s, songs, and language.

Though they wouldn’t admit it they feel they have reached some level that makes them better than the rest of us. Oh, I’m just a sinner saved by grace they will say as if that were some badge of honor. Saved from what? Saved from the eternal torture that the rest of us are bound for?

Well, why all this saving in the first place? What have any of us ever done that is deserving to be tortured forever in the first place? And why are you singing praises to the being that you believe is going to torture many of your friends and family for all of eternity?

I’m sorry but I think many of you aren’t dealing with reality. You are suffering from a delusion and have lost the ability to come back to reality without some very good professional therapy.

@Jason Cool, nice to see someone close by. MSU started a Atheist/Freethinker's group last year. Hopefully things will get going a bit better this year with a year under their belt, you should definitely swing by the meetings this year.

Greetings from Arkansas! I'm obviously not residing in KY, but thought I would join the group because I can't get enuf Atheist conversation. Looking forward to reading what those of you in KY have to say, and maybe contribute something to the group.

So I joined the Facebook group for Kentucky Atheists. There's only 10 members, including myself. Why are we so disorganized in this state?
