"You're so much nicer than me, I probably would have reminded her that had Jesus actually existed he almost certainly wasn't born on Dec 25th and that Christmas is actually a pagan festival (Yule) that was usurped by the Catholic Church…"

"Are we atheists just rebels? Now, there is protests all around the world. Will it produce change? One reason communism failed was it was more about rebellion rather than creating or organizing something better.  Looking back into the 70's…"

"To borrow from Dawkins, while I believe evolution is true, I don't think it's a good model for running societies. A quick study of chimpanzee society and bonobo society shows both influences on the human psyche. chimps are violently…"

"In some ways the current laws are stacked to favor women. Listen to country music long enough and this will become obvious ;) This is mainly because in the past the laws were absurdly stacked to favor men, and people tried to do something about it.…"

"Just one question about 'Why you should have lost your house?'. Is there some law? There is a contrast with the Shariah (Islamic law)."

Dating when you're over 40, divorced, atheist, angry at religion, with baggage

Posted on September 30, 2011 at 12:56am 14 Comments

I'm looking for some input here.

 

As you can tell from previous posts, over the last year I've been divorcing my increasingly fundamentalist wife who was homeschooling my two children and unintentionally sabotaging their chances at a normal childhood/adulthood. I've been married for 17+ years, since my (very) early 20s. It wasn't a great marriage. It was ok. At first. Theologically neither of us were very passionate in the beginning. As I think on my past more I realize I…

  • I have an assload of debt,…

My son tried a couple of lines he heard from (I'm assuming) Ken Ham on me today, I'm hoping my responses get him thinking. 

 

Line #1) I saw a video where Richard Dawkins (he couldn't remember the name at first) couldn't answer a question.

Response 1-a) I know the video you're talking about and that's not what happened. It was taken out of context and as I recall he didn't realize somebody was asking a question.  That's been debunked. 

Response 1-b) Even if the…
