Do religious "trigger words" bother you?

I seem to have a really big problem with religious trigger words.  Especially of the bad variety.  I've been coming on this site for a few months now and it's been really helpful.  I've found a lot…Continue

   I have quit a church that I have been a part of for 24 years. I no longer believe that there is a god and that everything I was taught is not true. It is interesting that people who said that they…Continue

I am a new nontheist but I haven't yet spoken about it to my mother. I had been a seventh day adventist since I was five years old. Even then I always had a lot of questions and found that I didn't…Continue

Hello all! I am new to the page,and fairly new to atheism (within the last four months) Life is good! My family is mostly still in the dark as to my new path,and the ones that do know seem to be keeping their distance,it's as if they fear catching atheism. I came to my decision to leave faith by really reading the bible,then my hubby and I spent countless hours reading and studying everything we could get our hands on. And we ended up here.

And apparently, he deleted my comment. Well, he didn't lash out, and its his FB wall, so be it. If he wasn't my brother, though, I'd have cut his feed from my news, right off. I guess I'll have to cut his feed, now.

Thanks, L. Hunter. ...Well, my brother posted an atheist joke to FB, so I had to comment back and flip it back on the theists... I consider myself of the pantheist flavor, so I was kind enough to toss in a coin for pantheism, too. If you can't make fun of yourself, then you certainly shouldn't go making fun of others. I hope he's able to laugh, too, since he dished it out first. If not, I'll just have to ignore his FB feed.

@ nerdlass. My experience has been that most believers simply don't get what we're saying. Repaired articulate arguments they don't process the information. My best friends, mother and others still think I'm going through a phase after 6 yrs. I allergy to them about the reliability of the bible, failure of churches and historicity of Jesus. They just don't get it.

My mother thinks my non-belief is an act of being rebellious and stubborn. I tried to explain it in terms of Santa Claus, but I don't know if i got through to her.
