"I believe the problems you describe are not atheist specific. It can occur over differences in religion, political opinion, interests etc. The underlying problem is that people must allow for the fact that their partner will not agree with them on…"

When Atheist Lovers Collide

"Anyone who believes in that shit is an idiot. Feeble minded and stupid." Man, that is pretty harsh an assessment of those who believe in religion, isn't it? It's even harder to hear when you don't share the same attitude towards theists. Worse? What if that was your lover talking to you?…See More

"I agree, Amanda. Whether you are 10 or 110  this is how religion keeps it's hold on you. They have to keep you "in the fold." We think of how ignorant they are for doing this and believing batshit crazy stuff, but let's look…"

Altar Calls And Night Terrors

It was another terrifying experience. One of many throughout the years. This time I woke up, face covered in tears, mind in a panic as I took a few minutes to calm down. I spent a bit longer than usual getting reoriented, my mind's movie content having hit a NC-17 for a number of things. But confirming that horrible episode of disaster and loss wasn't my reality anymore always takes a minute after waking up anyway. Deep cleansing breaths of cool forced heat assured me of what my slowly waking…See More

"As a side point (not to criticize your main point but to help stop some viral errors), the sleeping boy photo was posed, by a photographer, for another concept entirely, but someone made a meme out of it. BTW it's not his parents."

Čenek Sekavec commented on Amanda Ashcraft's blog post Damaged And Dating: A Situation I Never Thought Of Until Now

"If I were a Kurd I would be sorely tempted to take up arms to obtain political autonomy. It seems to me to be the very spirit of the American founders. We cannot oppose self governance without making illegitimate our rebellious origins."

About Me:
Zomberina Contagion was born into the world of hungry companies, disillusioned people, and unspoken ideas in 2006. After wandering aimlessly around in chat rooms and numerous social media outlets, in search of brains to eat and absorb useful knowledge from, she finally planted her first headstone on a small website called Ex-Christian.net. Since that fateful day two years ago, she has written many small essays about atheism, tragedies in the world, and the effects of religious belief in everyday world events. She has also given her general opinion on her favorite horror movies.
She is currently writing two novels. One that will be released in the late Summer of 2014 is entitled Sainted. A work of historical fiction set in 14th century Serbia that follows a pious prince whose decisions about his eternal soul end up changing the entire face of his country for centuries to follow. In time for Easter 2014, her short work called Christ’s Rebellion will be released as an e-book. This novel is part of the Nanowrimo.org project, and will follow the struggles Judas Iscariot faced when realizing Jesus had struck a deal with Lucifer in order to push Christianity out of the shadow of the ruling Pharisees’ dominion over religious interpretation.
She lives in the United States, where she blogs at http://rottingthoughts.wordpress.com, as well as:
http://www.ex-christian.net/blog/170-rotting-thoughts/.
You can also view some of her art works at http://ashcraftgirl.deviantart.com.
And she has an online store at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RottedThoughts

"I'm going to Kurdistand in March. I'm going to fight ISIS."



Not something you want to hear from a long time friend. Especially when it is followed up by, "This is something I believe in." Plenty of other platitudes followed. Empty assurances of safe zones he…

You Have To Be A Die Hard Cynic To Be Religious

Most of my mornings are filled with top 40 hits of pop music as I commute to work, kids in tow. This radio station is a clear favorite for all of us with its variety, and usually I can ignore the music and let the kids enjoy a little be bopping before going to school. Recently though, we discovered that on Sunday mornings there is a half hour of…
