About Me:
I was raised in a westland baptist family. Questions were somewhere between smallpox and ebola on the list of things to avoid. After the rather ugly separation of my family, I started noticing differences between the strict life I was forced into by one half of my family, and the seemingly happy life of the other. Eventually, I realized neither half made any sense, and I decided to be switzerland in the whole affair. That, combined with a thorough study of history, led me to the realization that I was an atheist. I've been battling against religious tyranny ever since.
I have been blind from the time I was two, and though I'm certainly not happy with it, it never really factored into my atheistic tendencies. Though it did lend a bit of comic relief to the lifestyle. Being told your blind because your mother didn't make you pay close enough attention while the pastor was screaming at you, eventually boggles your mind so thoroughly that your forced to laugh uncontrollably. Blindness certainly can make things interesting. But I try very hard not to act, appear, seem or in any way deserve of the term blind, other than the fact I can't see. That is to say, I'm no daredevil, but I'm not the blind guy in the bible either. I like to think of myself as somewhere between scent of a woman and blinkin from robin hood men in tights.
I guess the point I'm trying to make here is, I'm normal, I welcome questions about my blindness, but please don't pity me because of it. Trust me, it has its advantages.
I attend a private college in florida, accompanied by my guide dog. I have no romantic involvement at the moment, but I always keep an eye out.

Why are you here?
Its so difficult being an atheist these days. If your a young atheist, its even harder. You have to deal with all of the people around you wondering why they're going to church every sunday, and your stuck at home watching reruns of home improvement while recovering from a hangover.
In light of this, I have come here, in hopes that I might find friends or kindred spirits if you will, with whom I can share my thoughts, experienceds, and of course, rant about how frustrating the idiocies of organized religion can b. You know, socialize.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
Well, being told that you can't date until your out of high school, and dating without the express intent to marry is a sin, and being told that god loves you, yet he punishes you for everything, but you have free will, as long as your will meets his will, or you'll be thrown into a boiling lake of fiery hot torture, but he loves you; yeah, not a lot of logic there.

How can anyone make this claim

Posted on August 6, 2011 at 10:07am 7 Comments

   I've been having a religious discussion on another site that I frequent, which is mainly gauged toward the blind. I won't name any names of course, but the jist of the posts are about whether the christian god is "good" or not. I, being an atheist, (though I'm liking Hitchens' term of "antitheist") claimed that god could not be good even if he existed, because of the cruel and morally disgusting acts ordered by him in the bible. To which was replied, and I'm paraphrasing here, "I don't…
