So, I had to move back in with my fundamentalist parents while my husband studies for the bar and we set up his practice (I am going to be his office manager and business promoter while I go to school). I won't write this on my regular blog because I have readers whose comments I do enjoy that are Christian. But here, where there are only atheists, I will say:THE CHRISTIANS ARE DRIVING ME CRAAAAAAZY!!!! And I do mean crazy. If I don't get out of here soon, I am going to have a nervous… Continue

Rant on My Own Stupidity

Posted on March 3, 2009 at 7:05pm 9 Comments

I, like many, used to be a conservative Christian. I attended a small, Southern Baptist college. And now, I am thinking WHY? I wrote a blog post on my public-everyone-can-read-it blog, Redheaded Skeptic, and de-Conversion picked it up. It sure did create a stir on my Facebook inbox!



Not only did I receive a few odd responses (and one crazy, come back to Jesus book of an email), but I am realizing I… Continue

Recovering from Religion

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.See More

Greetings, Laura! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus for a long time. <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. We'd be glad to hear your story about living with your fundamentalist parents as an adult.

Thanksgiving, like winter solstice(aka christmas) is fun minus the superstition and claims of miracles(virgin birth,angels,astrologers .... need I go on ?)our religious history is something we should cherish as a part of our heritage ,We should keep the good stuff like getting together with family, good food ,socializing etc and throw away all the nonsensical stuff.So we can still enjoy Christmas and Thanksgiving without the irrational and more so I would say because I finally had sex on christmas last year ,this was hard for me even after becoming a rationalist because I always had this picture of Jesus up there going "just don't fuck on my birthday will ya"? .And I suspect there are many fellow primates of mine that have the same issue ,to them I would like to say make this Christmas extra special :)

Cheers,

I just read that you had to sit through a Ken Ham lecture. I chose to witness his wackiness this summer. I took a vacation to the east coast and stopped by the ole Creation Museum for a few giggles. I have plenty of pictures on my profile from the day. Ham is a special kind of special!

Very much enjoyed reading your blog posts at Redheaded Skeptic. You write well and in your own ranting ( not in a bad way) deliver an important message.
We appreciate you.
