Atheist, Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I was the one who never really believed. I was the one who kept telling myself that there was something wrong with me. That once my Bat Mitzvah happened I would "see the light" and all my doubts about my religion would disappear and I would really believe in god. When that (obviously) didn't happen I became agnostic. I was interested in eastern religions for a while because at that point I still felt like I needed to be some religion. In high school I finally started to accept that all religion was total bullshit and now I am completely atheist, although I still believe we can never truly know.

    Thanks for the comment. In response to your question ("What's it like to believe like that?"): It is truly devastating to believe something so passionately and then realize it's all bullshit. To love someone that doesn't even exist! It is truly frightening how much religion can sabotage your mind and your ability to think for yourself. Words can't even describe it.

    Hi Raven,

     

    First, I want to offer a brief apology that you submitted a blog entry and it seems like it stayed in the approval queue for a long time.  Generally, we (moderators) try to get through content quicker.

     

    Second, I didn't approve the blog entry, but not because there was an issue with the content; it's just in the wrong place.  We've recently introduced the status bar on the main page for giving people brief updates or quick links.  Alternatively, images can be posted to the image section where they will probably see higher traffic. I understand you might not want to do that if it's someone else's work, but I'll leave that to your discretion.

     

    If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding this, please feel free to let me know.

     

    Kris
