exactly what i think, its the whole 'good without god' problem, or the 'if does not exist, where is morailty going to come from?' problems again.

I was brought up in a family of people who are by descent Catholic. My Father has both Catholic and Protestant ancestry from Ireland and my Mother had Catholic ancestry from Germany. I don't know if my parents ever went to church regularly as children, or as adults, or even if they choose to get married in a church because they themselves were Christian. However, Five weeks after i was born, nearly a year after my parents marriage, my mother died of Cancer. I know from my dads own… Continue
Greetings, Fred! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Hello Fred. I’ve been an atheist, and non-religious, for approximately a year and a half. Before that I was involved in various forms of Christianity (I considered myself a Christian, albeit a doubting one and an unhappy one) and then with Spiritualism (I didn’t consider myself a Spiritualist, but someone that liked some of their views and believed some of their claims). During my time as a believer I always had doubts about the existence of God (many a time I found it hard to imagine how God, if it existed, could be a good God, considering the many natural disasters, disabilities, syndromes and everyday sufferings) and I always found it hard to accept that there’s a Devil, and especially the doctrines of Original Sin and that of Redemption and Atonement (why should I be punished for the transgressions of my ancestors? Why am I worthy of damnation just because some couple in some unknown couple at some unknown point in history ate a piece of fruit against their Creator’s wishes? These ideas made no sense and seemed terribly cruel). I began to lose my Christian faith gradually after reading the book, ‘The Unauthorized Version: Truth and Fiction in the Bible’, by the historian, Robin Lane Fox. Over time, after more thinking and more reading, etc, metaphysical explanations no longer seemed rational or evidence based and my faith in God, the afterlife, the soul, etc, naturally lessened. How about you? What is your journey, so to speak?
OK. I am venting. My mother died two weeks ago. She was a “god fearing christian.” Before her death she refused all medical treatment. She wanted to be left alone. She even refused to speak with my brother who is a methodist minister. He is a pip, let me tell you! I suspect she did not believe, but a woman born in her time could not and did not state her actual beliefs. This is the opening salvo to all christians; FUCK YOU! I had so many people come and tell…
This probably should not have shocked me as much as it did (especially since I am in Texas). I actually thought my coworkers were playing a joke on me because they know I am an atheist. Sadly, this was no joke. This actually happened.
I work in a psychiatric hospital. The doctors who admit patients are general MDs. (Psychiatrists see patients after admission) Yesterday evening we received several calls from irate parents. A new doctor who was doing admissions yesterday actually…
No Jason Torpy it is you that should be banned for promoting atheism, a belief that has no foundation in reality and zero proof behind it. The letter was a mockery of your atheist beliefs. I request to the board here that they remove Jason for his unverifiable beliefs in atheism for which he has no proof other than his arrogance. The letter was a mockery of atheism. Atheism is stupid and it should be mocked and it…
for once you and I can agree on something. We should disrespect beliefs that are untenable such as the belief that there is no God. Indeed for me to respect you Jason, I cannot respect your belief in non-belief in atheism. Your atheism comes across as arrogrance, smugness, and self righteous. Indeed after reading "An Open Letter to My Religious Friends" I penned one…
