Hi there So this is me. I no longer want to identify as 'atheist' and yet here I am. I am a member of several atheist groups -- rational skepticism, for example. The others I can't even remember: I…Continue

veniqe replied to Jacklyn Marianne Land's discussion Do you think all religions are harmful even seemingly benign ones like Wicca or only the main orthodox religions?
"It seems to me that far too many people on here engage in black and white thinking. I'm doubtful that anything in this life is 100% bad or 100% good. And too many atheists can only see the badness of religion. Religion isn't bad; people do…"

"Hmmm. No, I don't think all religions are harmful. And I agree that we need clarity on the meaning of 'harmful'. Sincere question, this: how much do you know about other religions? Have you looked up liberal religions at all?"

"¿UU? is a religion. Religious community, a combined search for meaning, is the point. It's just not dogmatic or theistic."

"I think atheists start from the premise that any good religion does can be done secularly.  That's as may be, but when it comes to forming community, religion has it all over atheism.  Yes, atheists can form communities, but usually…"

"Will Faithless Sophia, why not be friends with anyone as long as they're open to debate/reasoning/considering that they *GASP* might be wrong? I know far too many 'sceptics' who do not belong to that category..."

"Hey Eddie   I also have a problem with those theists. But I can see value in religion, too. Had a ridiculously log debate on twitter with a fellow hell-bound sceptic who can't see value in religion, let alone UU. I think most…"

"Welcome to the forum. Though I may be slightly guilty as charged. I have a problem with theist that try to force their faith on us through the government and accuse atheist of being without morals.   ~eddie"

So glad to have found this!

I'm disillusioned with atheist groups that only want to denigrate religion and faith and theism. So glad to be here!

Religious Humanist Naturalist UU wants to play

Hi there So this is me. I no longer want to identify as 'atheist' and yet here I am. I am a member of several atheist groups -- rational skepticism, for example. The others I can't even remember: I joined and abandoned them yonks ago. I am starting to feel ashamed to be associated with atheists because of the behaviour of some in the 'community'. Silly reasoning, I know, I know. But it pains me that so many are anti-religion or anti-theism. "Can't we all just get along?" So, yes, I am starting…See More

Some people are vitriolic in their anti-religious talk, aren't they. I've enough distance that anger isn't my driving force. I realize that's still a stage of letting go, where the religious memeplex continues to control one's thinking and feeling ... kind of like the bitter divorcee who can't move on.

Greetings, veniqe! 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.
