My father died today. I have gone through this before but at that time I was religious. This, I think, made coping easier. But now that I am no longer religious I believe I may have more…Continue

My college is lacking an atheist group and I have been thinking about starting one. But I have rarely been a part of any sort of  group so creating one is a mystery to me. Any tips, suggestions, or…Continue

Lydia replied to Rayray's discussion Church sign says atheists have "nothing!"
"I would only laugh at this sign. If the community of the religious have to display such things, it is out of veiled desperation. It makes them feel better to vocalize their "superior" beliefs. Let them have their petty blows. It only…"

feralboy12 commented on Lydia's blog post Passage of Youth
"No, I wouldn't consider atheism to be "fulfilling." Then again, I don't think it's really supposed to be. It's life itself that should be fulfilling--atheism is the shedding of a grand superstition, a superstition that…"

Passage of Youth

It is late (or rather early) and I find myself restless and awake. I wonder at how my life has changed, at how differently I see the world and the people in it. Just a few years ago I was so much the opposite of who I am today. I find myself thinking, where would I be, who would I be If I had decided not to leave faith behind? Would I be happy? Certainly not. I am still as lost as I was with God trailing behind my every step. But now I can make choices freely, not having to take direction from…See More

Richard Lawrence replied to Lydia's discussion Death Without God
"Lydia, Death is one of the unfortunate facts in the universe; it just sucks. You'll cope and you'll move on and as with any healing process it will be painful at times. One thing being an atheist bestows on you is a unique strength of…"

Gia Cunningham replied to Lydia's discussion Death Without God
