"Ah. Well, my opinion is still the same.  Prayer + medical care = good Prayer - medical care = bad"

Bryn replied to Wayne's discussion 'Do you think that it should be legal for parents to use prayer as a method of healing to their children?'
"I think that parents should be allowed to pray for their children as long as it is not the child's only form of treatment. Other than that, prayer is utterly harmless, and I see no problem with it. Opting out of treatments that actually work,…"

Bryn replied to Doug Espi's discussion '"I'm praying for you"'
"Just say thanks. If they genuinely are going to pray for you, even though it won't do a thing, the sentiment behind it is kind, which can easily be respected in its own right. And if they are saying it in a passive- aggressive way because they…"

Why are you here?
Oh, I dunno… Just got bored one day, looking around on the interwebs and came across this site. So I decided to make an account! :D
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
When I was around eleven, at an Easter vigil at my church, my pastor asked me why I am a Christian and why I believe in God. It was a simple enough question, but I couldn't come up with a solid answer. I lied and stuck with the first cause argument, but the question never really had an answer. For days, weeks, and months the question plagued me. I could not find an answer. I began to cling to my Bible in a search for answers, but the many contradicting answers I found became less and less convincing. Every Sunday, I caught myself rolling my eyes at the pastor's sermons more and more. I knew that I was no longer a Christian when I stopped saying "Under God" in the pledge every morning at school. I looked at the Koran, the Torah, Buddhist and Taoist texts (well, as long as my patience could hold), none of them satisfied my thirst for answers. But one day I heard of this book- This book called the God Delusion. I read it. And unalike the other religious books that I had read, I actually found some answers to my questions. My thirst for these books became insatiable. I read books by Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking, John W Loftus, Christopher Hitchens… All of the atheistic books that I could find. After I couldn't find any more, I began to look for blogs like thinkingatheist, pharyngula, and others. Somewhere along the way, I lost my religion. I really don't know where, but ever since I haven't been happier.
