"Thanks, Joan, and hope you are well. This group should grow and grow since the subject is hands down my favorite; I just didn't realize it. From earliest years, I dodged Sunday school because I knew more about the Booble than the lay…"

"I do my laundry Sunday mornings at a nearby washateria, not bad as these establishments go. Only problem: the TV comes on when the automatic door unlocks, letting me in, and I have to do my laundry to the accompaniment of a pasty-faced, plump,…"
"New to the group. Finding errors and just plain nonsensical parts of the Bible was one of the main reasons I was able to leave Christianity. Having had moral reservations to the god of the Bible and having read about historical inaccuracies I…"
"I do not disagree, Joseph. The social net established by that great Altruist, the very rich Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was long over due, and the Philosophy of Objectivism would have no room for such governmental interference in the affairs of the…"
"The kind of altruism that Rand attacked was the sort that sacrificed a greater value for a lesser one, which on many levels makes no sense whatsoever. However, that is not the totality of what altruism is. Helping the less fortunate through…"
"I agree with Neil. The only "historical evidence" we have for a "real" Jesus is written documents that have been under total control by the "established" religious authorities since the advent of the Christian…"
"#15: War in heaven!
15. Heaven is supposed to be a perfect place. Yet, it experienced a war (Rev. 12:7). How can there be a war in a perfect place and if it happened before why couldn't it happen again? Why would I want to go…"
"I guess one should have some life experience in the cult of Fundamentalism in order to grasp the gravity of Camping's rantings. One should "pay attention" because those that follow his brand of Calvinistic claptrap also vote, and they…"
"Brother Cramping was senile back in 1994 when he made his infamous prediction of the end of the world then, and did so in a rather thick waste of hard and soft cover print. Family Radio went through a good deal of back-filling over that fiasco, but…"
"If there is One, I am 100% certain that it has yet to be "discovered". Of all the gods known to human history, I am 100% certain that NONE of THEM ever existed. I am 100% certain that I live in absolutely no need of belief in any of them.…"

Born-again Christian since June 7, 1962 (baptized as a Presbyterian six months after birth, Oct 1944); student minister in the Free Methodist Church, 1963-1965; certified lay speaker in the United Methodist Church, 1997-1998; unrepentant atheist for the past decade. I grew up in a Republican household, have been homosexual since birth (but it took nearly 20 years to recognize it and accept it), have been attracted to men of African descent, am a dual citizen of the United States and the Republic of Ireland, am a registered Libertarian, but have become more and more "liberal" with age. I love classical music, writing and reading and researching my genealogical beginnings. Of the over 5,000 known gods to human history, I choose to follow none of them. In fact, there are enough things about me for millions to hate. Amen!
