"WTF? This quiz has so little to do with Christianity. I have no idea why these details are important to anything other than local traditions."

I love proper, logical discussion. Atheists tend more towards to calm rational than many other groups.

Why you left your religion.
My father was a lapsed Catholic, my mother a relaxed Protestant. Very little church was forced upon my childhood, but there were definitely pressure applied. A few church picnics, outings, get-togethers, a bit of video games to keep me there...pretty minor compared to many others' gut wrenching stories.
As I gained an appreciation for science and engineering, I read outside of the school's box. Enough stories from other cultural religions and you figure out the Agnostic position; no one has the answer.
Less religious pressure during high school, had a few more conversations with my brilliant, sci-fi raised, science minded father, and I was achieved the Atheist perspective.
The first time I recognized Atheism was my freshman year at community college. A fellow student invited me to pray with his group. I instantly recognize him from the Varsity Volleyball team. I was on the JV team for one year and this guy was the star varsity player.
When I realized he didn't recognize me, I immediately declined. Well entrenched in the Atheist position at this point.

American Politic

Posted on February 14, 2017 at 11:08am 2 Comments

Why is America in near constant war?

There is more than one reason.

We like to swagger. We like to sway. It lets us feel the clothes, lets us feel the groove, let us show off a bit. We know we can’t always swagger, but we do it where possible.

The government is run by humans and thus their personal bias bleeds into policy and it makes us sway. When we come to our senses and put in some…

The Problem of Language

Posted on February 12, 2017 at 10:55am 6 Comments

As humans, we are drawn together and then we notice we must be apart.

Language bridges the ideas stuck inside two minds. Communication is the difference between a human and society. We must have communication to have what we have. We must never forget the flaws inherent in attempting to communicate with another mind.

We feel communication is fairly simple as we do it on a near constant basis, everyday for multiple hours. It is easy and comes naturally. Remember that time you…

What is Strength?

Posted on February 11, 2017 at 12:13pm 4 Comments

Let me tell you a story.

A youth, full of exuberance and vitality, comes across a bully. The bully forces the youth into situations which cause anger and resentment.

The youth, unable to best the bully, recedes and contracts inward. Afraid of the bully, decisions are made, paths taken.

The youth reads and tries to understand the bully, but is unable. The youth knows the bully is strong and the youth is not. What does he do?

The youth witnesses Boxing. Two strong…

The Spiral Theory

Posted on February 11, 2017 at 5:10am 10 Comments

I need to show this to my atheist brothers before I start attempting this on theists.

Please berate me as much as possible. All I ask is you try to disprove my claim. I know the burden of proof is on the claimant, but as we understand logical absolutes, there is a point where only a disproof will do.

Existence is. The Statement.

It is 1. And it is not 1. At the same time. And 0 is the end?

Existence is. This is the logic chain.

First, the…
