Smirking, many religious people seem to think that when we atheists get into trouble we'll cry out to God. Really? Recently, a big pain and all the symptoms hit me big time; I was having a heart attack. The pain was horrible! I couldn't even talk to 911. Did I cry out to the imaginary God? Did I say 'Oh God'? No. I said, 'Oh shit!" I think that answers the theists!!! What do you think?
I live in an apartment building, and behold- the worst offenders where it comes to hatred and bigotry are those who profess to be "fine religious beings". How appropriate!
I'm not just an unbeliever, I detest religion! Why? It's not just that religion burned people as witches. Religion CONTINUES to separate us as "gangs", feeding our gang mentality, promoting hatred and wars! I guess you could say that I detest war, thus I detest religion. There are other reasons to detest religion. I will be interested in hearing others reasons.
Treatment of victims (and abusers) falls far short! There is a treatment for abusers, while there aere several kinds of abusers! ... 1. A mean abuser is just mean due to religious beliefs, or for other reasons/excuses. 2. A pedophile sexually abuses because he is a "baby lover", good grief! 3. A sociopath lacks empathy/feeling, so he abuses. 4. Others (rare) suffer from MPD or other affective disorders due to earlier abuses... A program for each kind of abuser should exist!!! ... …Continue
In my book, JUST-US FOR ALL, I described what I believe is a religion addiction most theists suffer from. Just my opinion from what I've seen... I described their obsessions. I described how they need daily "fixes", and how those fixes often involve shoving it down others throats! I described how teams of horses couldn't pull them away from their superstitions. ... It was pretty extensive; one has to read the book to get the entire drift. (…Continue

My so-called dad was an extreme abuser! I despised him as he abused mom, Sis and me, and after I'd cried out to God until I was blue in the face at 8 years old I finally got it through my thick head and I became an unbeliever!!! Wow, I said it! ... So, how do you forgive a man like that? I didn't! I didn't have the namby-pamby forgiveness of the religious within me! I'm a hard man, and if someone offends me severely, I don't easily forgive! That's true to this day. ... So, I've…Continue
The religious would have us believe intelligent design... I don't wish to convert anyone, but I'll state what I learned. I raised & studied wolves & hybrids for 20 years. Started with white Siberian Wolf and white G. Shepherd mix. Recessive genes? I gradually increased wolf % in hybrids. A number of mutations * occurred! A few, in nature, might have led to new, survivable kinds. Others were degenerate. It's too much to go into here. My point is that it all appeared RANDOM! …Continue
