Recovering from Religion

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.

One thing I have noticed is a tendency to "doubt" my new path in life. I still want to reach for the Bible sometimes. I still hesitate somewhat when someone mentions Pascal's "Wager"...LOL! Even though I know that science teaches this and that no…Continue

Last night I was reading Seth Andrew's book, Deconverted, and I almost fell out of my chair when he discussed being forced to watch the end times film from the 1970's call "A Thief in the Night."  He described some of the scenes, and I had a…Continue

How do I formally defect from the (Southern) Baptist Church?
I last went to that church about 18 months ago, but my name is still on their rolls and that pisses me off; I want myself removed from any membership list they may have; I will appreciate any idea you may have. Thanks.

Gustavo, remember Bibles are an important part of history and should be treated with respect. They are not garbage. They're absolute proof of how gullible people can be.

Wanna buy some great Florida real estate?

@Chris H. - It would be fun to make paper mache out of old Bibles and other "spiritual" literature. Unfortunately, I just threw mine away (to be recycled elsewhere).

Here's an interesting read on the subject of pastors who've lost their faith, yet still pastor their flock. This page links to the actual study, which is interesting (but lengthy).
Don't miss the "From the Panel" section.

I was happy to find this group. I was raised in a xtian household whereas my fiance was raised without religion. This sometimes makes it difficult to discuss issues of atheism because we come from such different backgrounds. It's nice to have a place to chat with people who have similar experiences to mine!

Hello everyone. I just joined the group. I have been an atheist for a little over ten years, but I was brought up in a very religious home. My father is now an atheist, but the same can't be said for the rest of my family.

Yeah... I defininately need this! I still live with my xtian parents... but there is some good news I'm GOING TO LIVE ON CAMPUS NEXT YEAR! Instead of just commuting! YEAH!!! ^_^

This may or may not be helpful to those in religious recovery. Shredding and Recycling the Bible (and other "holy" books).
Comment by Darrel Ray on November 24, 2009 at 2:58pm
Hey, does anyone know how to make a "fan club" thing on Facebook? I would like to see if that would be an appropriate forum for 1. recovering from religion and 2. my book tour information. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
