Confusion

Confusion, it starts with some prick mouthing off. You know he is wrong and so you step up to set him right.You quickly lay out your argument with finesse and poise, a salvo to baffle and tantalize the mind. When the next thing you know he is arguing the meaning of your words and telling you that you must be crazy for believing all that.Taken aback but not one to back down you settle in for the fight with an uneducated fool.

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
I am a visual artist by profession, currently employed by Emergent Arts LLC as Director of Visual Art. I am by my nature a strategist and activist, seeking to ever improve the society in which we live. I enjoy music of many kinds, though admittedly music about greed bigotry and maliciousness tend to not make the cut. Physics is my passion and acrylic paints are my opiate. I am addicted to life.
Age
25-30
Relationship Status
Single
Why are you here?
I was raised by a christian mother that had the wisdom to tell me to question everything, though I suspect she did not expect me to question quite as thoroughly as I have. At the age of fourteen I rejected Christianity and became a pagan, seeking truth in the other religions of the world. At the age of twenty I rejected religion out of hand but allowed for the possibility of the supernatural. Now I trust to reason. My transformation has, to me, been a beautiful cascade of personal development which I intend to see through until my dieing day. My goal for coming out as an atheist is to stand for the rights of those that cannot take a stand themselves.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
When I was a child I was shown a passage of the bible where it said that anyone that prays for wisdom would receive it. I prayed, then I questioned, then I studied, then the prayer was answered, not by God but rather by my own logical thinking mind.

Pity for the Manipulated

Posted on December 6, 2011 at 4:44am 0 Comments

The last 48 hours or so on the #atheist twitter hash tag have been hilarious as wave after wave of fundamentalist came along for their mythmas hitchslap. And indeed many of the moments have been filled with the same level of face-palm inducing stupidity as those that Christopher Hitchens has had to endure in many of his interviews with fundamentalist hosts. But in a way I almost feel sorry for the fundies, after all the "debate" is rather one sided. Anything they throw into the pot turns…
