"The first week I became godless, I started out as a weak atheist. I didn't believe a god exist, but had a lot of agnostic tendencies. Months went by and grew more knowledgeable. I pretty much see myself as a strong atheist(like a 7 on the…"

"Well, I think it's a habit like anything else, from biting your nails to bullemia. It will probably take some time to break the habit and direct your attention towards something more productive. On the other hand I know that when you are going…"

"It gets better. I fought being an atheist, too, but now I'm happy. I'm happy as an atheist and happier than I've ever been in my life. And I have a lot of problems, so that's saying something! :) And I'm sorry about your…"

"I found my comfort through diving headfirst into philosophy and secular humanism. You feel a bit lost now and need that comfort in humanity that you had with theism; that sense of purpose. Go and seek your purpose and live out your days in…"

Mister Harvey replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Recovering.... in the group Recovering from Religion
"Congratulations fellow Recover-er. I hope you find the great depth of peace that a loss of religion can bring. It is wonderful to know you no longer need to defend your beliefs. May their arguments pass by you as the waters of a swift and shallow…"

Larissa Rivera replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Recovering.... in the group Recovering from Religion
"When I was religious, I justified it by telling myself the Bible says there is only one unforgivable sin, and that is cursing the holy spirit, not suicide. It wasn't much of a help because people would tell me he's in Hell anyways, but it…"

Cheri replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Coming out.... to myself
"Greetings Larissa, I read your post with interest and know that many that have been entangled in supernatural beliefs from earliest childhood have much angst while in the process of putting away childish things. One very useful book, by Dr.…"

Fred Rock replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Coming out.... to myself
"Hey Larissa, I came to this point around 2 years ago after 55 years of being involved in religion. I must say that the first year was the hardest for me. Its like there's a disconnect between the enlightened mind and the indoctrinated emotions…"

DaVinci replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Coming out.... to myself
"It's pretty obvious when you think about it as a Christian, that God doesn't really answer every prayer. So what do they make of it? It starts a slippery slope of appolgetics. The best answer I've ever heard is that prayer is for the…"

"I am trying to take it slowly... I was a Christian for most of my life and even though I went from one extreme of Christianity to the other, I still believed in the same God. Today I was at Taco Bell and my hubby and I ordered our normal bunch of…"

Ken Dodge replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Coming out.... to myself
"Though I am an atheist, I am also an artist (musician). Music is the language of emotion as well as reason. I've seen too often as a performer how my mood can transform a room, one way or the other. I read a book recently.…"

Chrys Stevenson replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Coming out.... to myself
"My only advice is to take it slowly. I keep saying this, but you don't have an instant conversion to atheism - it's a journey. Everyone has to take that journey at their own pace. If you find it hard to let go of some…"

arm3d replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Coming out.... to myself
"Yes, yes, and yes. Being a new non-believer myself, I find the hardest thing to get over is the innate built in fear and guilt that I think I was preconditioned with starting as a child. Nothing like a few fire and brimstone sermons to scare some…"

Matthew Dicks replied to Larissa Rivera's discussion Coming out.... to myself
"Hi Larissa, I get a sense of hopelessness in your post, your plea "whats the good of it?" sounds a bit sad and lost (i hope I'm wrong). I was never religious, so dont pretend to know what you are going thru. But can I suggest that…"

"Good for you. Learning how to live the one and only life we have is a big enough task. So much time and energy is wasted on religious guilt other meaningless stuff. You now have time to learn all that life has to offer and really enjoy smelling the…"

I found your discussion "My Life as an Ex-Fundie" and loved it. A lot like my own experience.
