Your Religious Status
About Me:
I am a factotum, an avid reader, and one who recognizes that all language-based claims are necessarily abstract and artificial (wordless experience is perhaps the true measure of reality).
Why are you here?
Why not?
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
While attending Bible college I began reading (most untouched) books in the school library dealing with comparative religion, anthropology, mythology, and history. it was there, ironically, that I "lost" my faith upon learning that most of the Old Testament, and a great deal of the New Testament, was appropriated and reworked for older religious traditions. From there I studied the Enuma Elish, the Epic of Gilgamesh, the gods El, Baal, and Yahu, the Canaanite/Hebrew goddess Asherah, the Ugaritic texts, the Nag Hammadi library, the Amarna letters, the Dead Sea Scrolls, geocentricism vs heliocentricism, the biology of belief, the denial of death, memes and qualia, the limbic region of the brain, pre-Christian myths of dying-and-resurrecting gods (e.g., Osiris, Attis, Adonis, Tammuz, Dionysus), apologetics and counter-arguments, reification and hypostasization, biblical criticism (e.g., higher, textual, form, tradition, literary, redactive, historico-critical), exegesis and hermeneutics, trinitarianism, universalism, fideism, christology, soteriology, eschatology, predestination, naturalism vs supernaturalism, assumptions and presuppositions, truth-seeking, Occam's Razor, fear and doubt, self-deception and defense mechanisms, knowledge, logic, and reason. In short, I did not go into atheism lightly or ignorantly, but out of a firm desire to embrace "truth" wherever it might lead me.
