How do we relate to believers?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Nelson Nov 27, 2011. 3 Replies

Even though I was a Christian before my "deconversion", I am stumped as to how I am to relate to believers.  I am not delusional enough to think that religion will ever become extinct, so we will…Continue

Theology Professor put this in powerpoint today in class.. whatcha guys think?

"I think this is fairly accurate.  In my journey from the faith to atheism, I was leaving behind the sky daddy (up), and coming back to earth (down), to the things that really matter.  I would,however, take issue with the "no…"

"Regarding the ethics comment, I wish more people would ask this question before donating; "on what ground is the claim 'made in God's image' substantiated?" Most secular ethical theories at least try to substantiate…"

Does anyone on Think Atheist have any advice/resources that could help me become a more effective essayist/story teller?  I am a good technical writer, as it is a requisite for my majors in college.  However, I would like to use short stories and essays to talk about my ideas regarding religion, science, philosophy, etc, and I have no time in my schedule for such a class.  I have tried to write out my ideas in the past, but quit due to frustration, said frustration coming from wondering whether…See More

Benjamin Miller replied to Rocky Oliver (LotusGeek)'s discussion 'What xian/religious sayings get on your nerves?'
""We are using the same data, we just have different interpretations" saith the creationist to the heathen. I, the heathen, typically respond something akin to "Assuming that we are looking at the same data, has it ever occurred to you…"

"Thank you, Nelson, for the long, thoughtful, response.  It makes me wish I had been more detailed in my original post.  I haven't been an atheist for too long, so I tend to stick with what I know fairly well, which is biology.…"

Benjamin Miller commented on Jeromy Hyatt's group 'How to find meaning in atheism'
"For me, it's really quite simple. There is no "meaning" for anything, outside of what we animals capable of understanding "meaning" have applied to things. This works for me, though maybe some of you are looking for some…"

How to find meaning in atheism

I have trouble treating the things in my life with any sort of care and it's because i'm an atheist so in all honestly i don't really see any reason to keep going. So lets talk about this, about the paradox i'm sure most of us have experienced.See More

How do we relate to believers?

Even though I was a Christian before my "deconversion", I am stumped as to how I am to relate to believers.  I am not delusional enough to think that religion will ever become extinct, so we will have to get along with them.  What would be a good strategy to win the minds of believers?  I do not wish to "deconvert" anyone, as that is a foolhardy goal, and I do like a diversity of opinions.  I do realize that some will always think of us as "agents of the Devil", essentially stonewalling any…See More

About Me:
I am a biology major with a chemistry minor. I have 3 semesters to go until graduation. I am getting married October 19, 2012. My fiance is a Christian, but somehow or another our religious differences have made our relationship stronger. It's only her family who disapproves of our relationship, and a select few within that set that have strong feelings about it.

Why you left your religion.
I was brought up a young earth creationist. Once I learned what scientists said biological evolution is, compared to what creationists were saying it is, I realized that creationists are either a) misled, b)lying, c) delusional, or d) all of the above. This is what really kick started my first honest quest for the truth. A quest that required I question the beliefs I didn't even know that I was harboring.
