Did a christian school help you find the truth?

I know only three atheists personally.

Two of them were raised completely devoid of any religion -- no church, no Sunday school, no religious brainwashing whatsoever. These two agree with almost everything posted on this site, but would never care enough to actually join an atheist site. They didn't know of Hitch, Harris, Dawkins, PZ etc. until I introduced them.

The other one, like myself, was raised to be christian. He went to catholic schools through high school. I was…

Losing trust in god?

Apparently I've not been clear enough with my coworkers. One of them included me on their forwarding list for the following e-mail:



-----------------------------------

REFUSE NEW COINS



This simple action will make a strong statement.



Please help do this.. Refuse to accept these when they are handed to you.



I received one from the Post Office as change and I asked for a dollar bill instead.



The lady just smiled and said 'way to go', so… Continue

Thank god?! No, thank LOST!!

Wow, that was a close one!



A theist would say, "Thank god!"

I say, "Thanks to LOST!"



My satellite reception cut out last night. "No biggie", I thought, it'll probably be back on my morning." It wasn't. When I finished with my daily morning phone meeting, it was time to quickly get ready to leave... but one nagging thing: what was wrong with my satellite reception? LOST is on tonight and I don't want to take any chances.



I decided to take a quick look at the… Continue

Virgin Mary Image on Dog Door?

Did anyone see the story on the news this morning of an Alabama man who saw the Virgin Mary in the dirt that rubbed of his dog's back onto his dog door?


Virgin Mary Image on Dog Door?

Wow... just wow.

Do you believe in luck?

I've found that my belief in the concept of "luck" went away with my theism. Have any of you experienced anything similar?



Merriam Webster's first definition of luck is: "a force that brings good fortune or adversity"

And fortune: "a hypothetical force or personified power that unpredictably determines events and issues favorably or unfavorably"



What IS this force? I think I thought it had to do with god. (Or maybe Star Wars?? tee hee… Continue

Proof God is Real... again...

I found this video on YouTube and 99% of the commenters seem to think this guy is a genius -- I just don't get it. There are people claiming to have been atheist who say this video converted them.



Essentially, he seems to be saying that since he says he can prove that time and matter didn't always exist that something had to have created it. And because things are complex, that proves that the creator is incredibly intelligent. He says he has us "cornered" and that some us don't… Continue

An atheist is someone who believes that nothing made everything.

Hello all:



PZ Myers published a blog about Ray Comfort's latest antics:

Pharyngula




Read at your own risk... it contains phrases such as:



"Imagine if I said my latest book came from nothing. Imagine if I say that I don't believe a builder build my house."



PZs comments bring us back to the non-delusional reality most of us prefer, however.… Continue

Atheism = Anarchism?!

Atheism: a disbelief in the existence of deity

Anarchy: absence of government

(Merriam Webster)



How could anyone confuse these two? I suspect many people probably do.



A coworker of mine, in his mid 40s, is very open-minded. He sees worth in everyone and everything, even if it goes against his core beliefs. He's also intelligent - though he's only willing to go so far. He believes in both god and evolution. (Catholic, non-church-goer.) He has said he wouldn't want… Continue

How a 29-page booklet converted me to creationism

After nearly 38 years of life... being born into a christian family, graduating nearly at the top of my class at a christian university (why christian? -because it was close), and being surrounded by "believers" at home, school, and work... the idea of the existance of a god to me has always seemed laughable. --Except for the fact that I was never allowed to laugh. And the idea of "creationism" would be totally hilarious if not for the fact that so many people actually buy it. I'd be glad to… Continue
