"I often think about how comforting the religous world view is. It's comforting in a self centered sort of way. It makes the individual feel "safe", like you have found a sole solution for all your problems. But it's merely an…"

"I really enjoyed reading Stoic philosophy, if you're into that sort of thing, and also found it a good "substitute" for comforting Christian literature that I had used in the past."

"I'm originally from around Toronto Ontario (Canada). I moved to New Brunswick, and am now living in South Korea. I guess you could say I get around a bit."

"Wow Min, you have certainly had an interesting life. In my experience, most people to join this group have been Americans and southern; it is so cool to hear of your experience from another perspective. You mentioned you left your province, where…"

"First of all, hi. This is my first post on here after reading several threads and deciding it would be a good idea for me to join the group. Anyway, onto answering your questions (in reverse order): 3. It was sort of a slow process for me, which I…"

Absurdists

This is a group for those who are interested in Absurdism. In simplest terms, Absurdism is to the meaning of life what atheism/agnosticism is to god.

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.See More

ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.

""What you don't understand is that this is no place for you to say what is and is not a place for someone else." Then I'll rephrase what I said: This is only my opinion and not based on any official rules, but honestly,…"

"I'm sorry, I didn't seem to have phrased myself correctly - I didn't mean to suggest that the emotional turmoil is in any way easy to deal with, merely that the philosophical dilemma has an easy answer. I apologize for the confusion."

"Dustin, I am not sure why you seemed to take his answer so personally. He wasn't attacking you or belittling your personal struggle in any way. If you go back and look at her question, he answered it. What you don't understand is that this…"

Dustin Hill replied to Amanda Mae Burklow's discussion Existential despair? in the group Life After Christian Fundamentalism
"Yeah it's simple. My parents not talking to me ever again is so easy. I just need to read a Sam Harris novel. I can't believe how stupid people are for not recognizing how easy having to rebuild their entire social support system is. Sam…"

"It certainly was difficult for me. I lost all my friends and ruined what little relationship I had left with my parents. I spent a couple years knowing that what I had been taught was wrong, but not having a clue what was actually right. I spent a…"

Hi Amanda, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where we recognise--like you do as a freethinker--that all gods are phoney and religions are cunning frauds used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 260 discussion topics. We invite you to join us.

Actually I just moved from Asheville to Chapel Hill last July so that my wife could get her doctorate. But we will certainly be moving back as soon as she finishes. Asheville is where my heart is.
Congratulations on being able to break away from the horrors of fundamentalism. I've found the healing process to be slow, but worthwhile in the end. Hit me up if you ever need to talk. I'm also on facebook if you're interested. =)
