"Critical thinking is like diet and exercise -- everyone knows they should do it, but it's just too damn hard for most people. The Secret is like Ultra Slimfast, and you know how healthy that stuff is!"

We can learn something from James Arthur Ray

I’ve been thinking about the James Arthur Ray situation. You know, the guy who was on Oprah talking about “The Secret?” The one who killed three people by tricking them into fasting for days and then shutting them up in a sweat lodge so they could have visions and learn to become “spiritual warriors?” Yeah, him.Did you know that he was charging as much as $9,000 a head for his five day retreat? Just to not feed people and stuff them in a hot tent while he regurgitated the crap from every…See More

"As to the speaking in tongues part, I once knew a girl who practiced speaking in tongues before church. Isn't speaking in tongues supposed to be channeling/being posessed by God? How can a person still believe in it when they know they are…"

Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
Used to be agnostic/New Age/Pagan-leaning. Raised by New Age mother and Atheist father. I had superstitious beliefs that I didn't really whole-heartedly believe that I finally gave up on when I became interested in the skepticism community. I used to believe in a god ("The Universe" as an intelligent being) that created everything, planned out to happen exactly as it did, and all "god" had to do was start it with the big bang. I realized that that was too small a space for a god to exist in.
