Michael Peterson replied to Debra Stevenson's discussion Camp Meeting in the group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"Nothing brings out the crazy like camp meeting.  Growing up my parents went to camp meeting every year and usually for the whole week.  One of the regulars was a man who would go around handing out horse feed (a mixture of oats and corn)…"

Michael Peterson commented on Dustin Williams's group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"Hey Emery, I am largely in the same boat as you.  I still attend church with my wife.  There are still people within the church that I consider friends, but I have been working on developing social connections outside of church.  It…"

Michael Peterson replied to Humble Pie's discussion Anyone remember our 8th grade science text? :) in the group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"My recollection was that it was in 7th/8th grade, but I may be confusing it with 10th grade Biology.  The teacher would have been the same person."

Michael Peterson replied to Humble Pie's discussion Anyone remember our 8th grade science text? :) in the group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"Somehow I got to use an actual science text book in my SDA school.  It even had a chapter on evolution in it.  The teacher prefaced the material by stating we had to understand it, but we did not have to believe it.  I guess I got…"

Michael Peterson replied to Andree Saxby's discussion Historical Jesus in the group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"A FB friend was preparing for a sermon he is preaching on Jesus and the resurrection.  He made the statement that there was tons of documentation of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.  In the comments he was challenged on this (by…"

Michael Peterson replied to Andree Saxby's discussion Historical Jesus in the group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"I have heard of Rene's book.  I heard an interesting interview of him, I think by Robert Price.  Some of the things said about him remind me of cranks like Velikovsky or that guy who claimed he find the tomb of Jesus.  I will…"

Michael Peterson replied to Andree Saxby's discussion Historical Jesus in the group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"Dustin had a good list that have fairly balanced views on the subject.  There are a subset of atheists that get worked up about the existence of Jesus and will pounce on anybody who suggests that he existed.  Maybe he existed, maybe he…"

Michael Peterson replied to Dustin Williams's discussion For those in the closet, what's the plan? in the group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"I actually came out to some friends.  My wife and I were visiting some friends we had not seen in a long while. I mentioned that I was an atheist.  A couple days later we met up again and our friend mentioned that her husband was looking…"

Michael Peterson replied to Wendy's discussion Clifford Goldstein in the group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"I am currently on a slow connection so I am waiting for it to buffer, but I am not sure that this will be as hilarious as a clip a friend posted on facebook with two guys talking about "the Jesuit plot to destroy…"

Michael Peterson replied to Andree Saxby's discussion Do you feel resentful about how you were raised? in the group Ex-Adventists and Seventh-day Atheists
"My cousin did and I have a few friends from my WWC years that went there.  I spent some time at Roger's Elementary, but my parents moved away before 6th grade.  Maybe that was a good thing."
