Michael Merry replied to K Avony's discussion Ready to take the plunge!
""So here I am, ready to take a step and say I'm an atheist. I guess my question is: Is this nagging feeling normal? Have other people dealt with this, and if so, what did you do? Or is this even an issue?" The nagging feeling is…"

"Pat Condell described the biblical nonsense known as original sin: "being billed for something I didn't order". Myself, I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints (Billy Joel, Only the Good Die Young)"

Michael Merry replied to K Avony's discussion Ready to take the plunge!
""Isn't it more reasonable that God would be humored by earnest disagreement, and that it's more important to live life as a good person than worship some invisible dad in the sky? Wouldn't he just be happy if you don't maim…"

Michael Merry replied to K Avony's discussion Ready to take the plunge!
"Good point. I can't prove it, but I suspect a high proportion of church goers are actually social Christians, not devout believers. In the U.S., and, to a lesser degree, Canada, the social stigma of being labeled 'godless' is…"

Michael Merry replied to John Jubinsky's discussion Modern Humans in Europe 45,000 Years Ago in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Reasonable assumption. Many examples throughout history of peoples/civilizations conquered or annihilated by more advanced peoples. As glaciers receded at the end of the last ice age, huge swathes of open land were exposed, conditions suited to…"

Michael Merry replied to K Avony's discussion Ready to take the plunge!
"The nagging feeling is normal in people who learned fear of 'god' from an early age. Remarkably, Christians continue using 'Pascal's wager' (St. Thomas Aquinas) to argue that divine punishment for non-belief is of such…"

Michael Merry replied to John Jubinsky's discussion Modern Humans in Europe 45,000 Years Ago in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Interesting. Some anthropologists believe the Neanderthals were out-competed by modern humans, Neanderthals eventually disappearing some 25,000 years ago. So it seems we co-existed with Neanderthals in Europe for many thousands of years. Anyone know…"

Hello Michael, and welcome to this wonderful world of atheist truth and peace.
"True common sense helped by science leads to atheist wisdom."
If freethinkers could only reason with the religious, there would be no religious. 
Lord Byron: “Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves.”
Terence Meaden "---but those who do, are atheists."

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 555 discussion topics and 3000 members.
