Tabitha McCoy replied to Allison Rodriguez's discussion Backsliding... in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"You know, I completely understand how everyone feels here. I have been going back and forth between atheism and Wicca for a long time now. Years. I love the crystals, the runes, the feel of the happiness that everyone seems to share... It's…"

"Just for clarification: This is also not to say that there aren't qualified and reputable and credible alternative medicine practices, nor am I suggesting that there aren't those that meet certain criteria and professional standards. I…"

"I think one of the things that "really bugged me" when I was still a part of pagan scene, was while knowing my plant biology(botany-if you will) certain practitioners would go on this kick, (mistakenly thinking I fully supported their…"

Allison Rodriguez replied to New Atheist's discussion Need help again in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"Hi Again :) don't worry about your answers being long. This dialogue has been helpful for me too. Especially around this time of year, I yearn for the spirits of my dearly departed (as you said, the "good parts" of the supernatural)…"

Allison Rodriguez replied to New Atheist's discussion Need help again in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"I'm so sorry that these beliefs are causing you distress. I applaud your efforts at seeking help and talking back to those toxic messages in your mind! I see though that you are still using black and white thinking. Good vs. evil, black or…"

SDF replied to Allison Rodriguez's discussion Backsliding... in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"You might want to try Burning Man.  The theme's a little bit Pagan, but it's edgier, and it's not a Pagan event.  Costuming and body painting and fire and art and clothing optional.  You can rough it in a tent like I…"

Allison Rodriguez replied to New Atheist's discussion An atheist's history of paganism? in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"A great book is Cows, Pigs, Wars and Witches by Marvin Harris. Basically, the consensus seems to be that people invented god/desses to explain what they did not understand, which, to a cave man, was quite a lot! People still use god this way, as a…"

Allison Rodriguez replied to New Atheist's discussion Ugh. Feel like I'm getting sucked in again :( I don't want to. in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"Hey :) I wanted to make sure I got to all of your questions.. Can you please help me with this?  I've been an atheist for half a year now and was doing really well with debunking the old beliefs and feeling safe. Now I've been around…"

Allison Rodriguez replied to Little Name Atheist's discussion How old were you when you decided childfree was your default? in the group The Childless and Godless
"AHAHAHAH! excellent! yeah, I was pagan for 17 years so I think my family was probably pretty scared that I would be bringing little witches into the world :) And I would have too! I was looking forward to it actually! But that was when I believed…"

Allison Rodriguez replied to Little Name Atheist's discussion How old were you when you decided childfree was your default? in the group The Childless and Godless
"Yep, sleep is definitely an issue! I average about 10 hours a day and I can't imagine how I would do that with kids! I would be a grouchy, irritated, B*TCH! Allison"

Allison Rodriguez replied to Little Name Atheist's discussion How old were you when you decided childfree was your default? in the group The Childless and Godless
"Wow, it never dawned on me that I could still donate my eggs even if I didn't want to have kids... I dunno tho... One of my main reasons for not having kids is that I'm screwed up ;) We still don't know how much of it is nature and…"

Allison Rodriguez replied to BuildingCastles's discussion Why don't you want kids? What the hell is wrong with you? in the group The Childless and Godless
"I think I may be a little bit different from a lot of the people on this board although I certainly respect everyone's opinions. I wish I was one of you who "just knew" from an early age that kids weren't for you. I grew up…"

Jo Jerome replied to Allison Rodriguez's discussion Backsliding... in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"Good points exwiccan. And few communities can do the fun-community thing quite like the neo-pagans. I've long said that the cool thing about being Pagan is that every day is a holiday. "It's 3 nights before the 4th quarter moon!…"

exwiccan replied to Allison Rodriguez's discussion Backsliding... in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"Hi Allison: I've e-mailed you separately with my story but thought I would reply to this on here as well. I think that socialization and community are major attractants of any religion, and by being atheist we feel "left out" of this…"

Hi, and a friendly welcome to Allison Rodriguez
Very glad to have you here among the sensible, rational people of this world.

Welcome to this great Nexus meeting place and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and brainwashing fraud that it is---
and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 240 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
