Joseph P replied to John Jubinsky's discussion Researchers Say that Religious People Dislike Atheism (and Atheists) because They Associate Them with Death in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Morticians and doctors don't imply that death makes the believer cease existing.  We do."

"What argument?  Point to where I said "only Catholics" or "Catholics more than anyone else." Since when is it a bad argument to avoid speaking for groups about which you don't have any experience?"

"Usually beans, rice, and other stuff like that.  We have stuffed bell peppers a lot, when they start ripening, usually."

Joseph P commented on Ivy's group Atheist Humor
"That looks like a fairly common thing, in peppers.  We have four pepper plants growing out on the deck, right now.  I'll see if we can get a few like that, when they start growing peppers."

Joseph P commented on Ivy's group Atheist Humor
"I didn't really look at it, before.  Yeah, definitely not a tomato.  Tomatoes are more solid, full of that gel stuff, between the more solid bits.  Looks like a bell pepper to me, too."

"It's a complex mishmash of reinforcing elements, though.  That just makes it harder to pick apart the layers and figure out what is really holding someone within their childhood brainwashing."

Compared to the Philly area where I was born and raised, the pacnw is much more my style! There are many more "spiritual" people than religious, but still... Luckily I am married to a Catholic who accepts me just the way I am! I raised three kids who are atheists, their choice as I never closed any doors they wanted to look through, so I have my own little world where I am comfortable.
I LOVE to debate, especially with believers- sadly no one wants to be on the opposing side. :(
The whole brainwashing thing floors me. Blind faith in a mean, vindictive, spiteful, omnipotent presence is so mind blowing to me!

Good old German/Irish Catholic river town..a church and a tavern on every corner.

I was sent to the poorest and the roughest, run by "industrial strength" nuns.

Laughter was prohibited..beatings were daily.

No, not lovely at all. Some Mormons, some others. It's an organized community stalk. I try to ignore it. But,like me, it just won't go away! Which is what a few very pissy people want. The others just play follow the leader. What better place for that than here?

The part of TN I live in does not atleast. I would love to move to another state somehow, to a more liberal community. That's a world I've never had the privelege to experience. I live in the backwoods with churches around every corner. Now, I'm being kicked out and losing my boyfriend of almost 2 years because I refuse to follow the christian lifestyle that he and his family are deeply involved in. He says the devil has a stronghold on me and its very frustrating. I'm suffocated by this fantasy cult community. And to boot, all of the shelters are faith based and require chapel attendance in return for food and a bed. So, yes you may be able to see why I'm searching for support on the internet lol.

This town is so small and the people are so narrow minded. There's practically a church on every corner and unfortunately, I'm not exaggerating too much, they're everywhere. I also have the added "benefit" of living with hyper religious Mormons who are all too pleased to casually spout their nonsense, but clam right the hell up when I get all secular on their asses.

Its almost next to impossible to even find a university professor outside of more liberal universities or colleges like UP who doesn't frown upon atheism . There's always been a stigma that being godless is equal to being immoral or innately evil. I have to fake faith and its churning my innards every time I have to go to church.

Hi! No, I'm not Latina suprisingly!  I used to tutor Spanish-speaking ESL students, and when I'd tell them my name ("Hola, soy Christiana"), they'd nod and smile and look at me as if to say, "Oh, you're a Christian, that's great... but what's your name?" lol. I was named after my British great-grandmother, who we think was named from the book, "Pilgrim's Progress." The main character's name is Christian and his wife is Christiana. :) Nice to meet you!
