Hi, I'm Eric, and I now consider myself an athiest.  I discovered this site through stumbleupon.com and nearly every time it brought me here, I gave whatever random pic or discussion a thumbs up. …Continue

Thought Expirament - What if the Bible Was Taken Literally...By Everyone?

"I've had to buy 10+ Bibles because every time a friend brings one over my cat throw up on it.  :p  (Seriously.  We call her the Atheist cat) I think another part of it is how old is the Bible.  It's one of the oldest…"

The Bible - Best Selling Book of All Time?

Have you ever noticed how, if you are so inclined (I hear the pages make great rolling paper), you can acquire a bible for free?  Go to any church, hotel, or come accross any wandering missionairies and you can leave with bible in hand free of charge (other than maybe your dignity, self respect, and/or hours of having to listen to the "truth").  Yes, there are various specialty bibles you do actually have to pay for, but it's the same words (WARNING: Translations may vary from minor to complete…See More

Eric Turnbull replied to Unseen's discussion 'Batman Theater Slaughter: Would Gun Control Laws Have Prevented it?'
"Your arguement is the most valid I've seen regarding this issue, and for the most part agree that there is no way a concealed weapon would've taken the guy out..  I do however believe that a defensive gunman, if responsible (CCW…"

Eric Turnbull replied to Shankar's discussion 'Giving up on Atheism - Atheism promotes promiscuity and is bad for society'
"You should read the Star Carrier series by Ian Douglas.  It depicts a future where society lives in 'group marraiges' and being monogamous is considered archaic at best, preverse at worst (Monogie and Prim [as in primitive] are…"

Eric Turnbull replied to Cody Staub's discussion 'Test of fire...have you seen these videos?'
"Pretty awesome video if you took out all the words.  Like James said, definitely a call to arms.  I don't however, think that an unshackled Christian theocracy would be THAT horrible, but that could just be me putting too much faith…"

"Let me try to clear this up.  Think in the terms of an expirament.  Ignore the fact that humans have the capacity for critical thinking and reason, and lack the ability to question the bible.  Also, don't just think in terms of…"

Why are you here?
I appreciate the views of critical thinkers and support the fight against those who would cheapen humanity.

Christian
Why you left your religion.
I've slowly phased myself out of Christianity over the last decade because I am tolerant enough to accept anyone regardless of their beliefs. The idea of God isn't bad, religion on the other hand... I came to the conclusion that most religions have the same basic rules of morality thus the differences and violence in some cases are based on semantics. This site promoted my shift from open thinking Agnostic to Athiest.
Think Atheist Travel Network Couch Availability - Are you able to host anyone now?
