Sad movies are the reason I don't believe in God.

Posted on June 27, 2009 at 4:27am 12 Comments

I only realized this tonight.

When I was really involved in the church (teenage years) I loved the feeling of being really emotionally charged. Like I could change the world. I loved the feeling of walking out of a youth service in a Wednesday night like i was walking on air. Like I had the world figured out. Like I was invincible. Like anyone could say anything to me and it would bounce off me and turn into rainbows.

Eventually I figured out what was going on. I would go to a… Continue

This is my first submission to a local "zine" that gave me an atheist section. Please tell me your thoughts.

Hi, my name is Erica and I am an atheist. If that bothers you or makes you angry, I would suggest flipping to a different page. An open mind is needed to continue.

With that said, it is not my intention to convert, ruffle feathers, step on toes or any other saying that means to “piss everyone off”. My intention, is to write a readable article for a “budding woman’s zine”. It just so happens that, to some, being an atheist is offensive enough so I don’t even have to try.

I’d first like… Continue

Atheist = Undateable

Posted on June 7, 2009 at 6:50pm 68 Comments

I seriously just had a guy I was seeing tell me that he could never see himself marrying me because I don't believe in god.

I'm a little angry and a little proud at the same time. I'm proud that I've taken a stand and will not back down.

Although, I still want to tell him he's a selfish prick and I'm a better human being than he is despite my belief system.

I think a difference in religious belief is a valid reason to stop seeing someone but he strung me along and then dropped… Continue

Prayer Chain

I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter if what you're saying makes sense.

Example #1: One evening I was watching Extreme Home Make Over. (I know, bad idea.) An entire city was devastated by a horrible tornado. One part of the show centered around this old woman whose house had been completely demolished but the heart warming part was that God spared her rose garden. Really? That line of thinking seems a little backwards to me. Ok, so God was like, "I need to destroy this… Continue

My Mind Was Just Blown

I need to preface this entry with letting you know I've only recently began really exploring what it means to be an atheist and what implications it has on my life and future. I've known for a long time that I didn't think God existed but never sat down and thought about it. I've now started that process.

I just finished watching Richard Dawkins "Root of All Evil". If you've never seen it I would strongly suggest it.

I am overwhelmed right now.

I am amazed and… Continue

Met online, actually. Used to talk on the phone all the time, but it got expensive and time zones didn't line up when I moved to Asia. We sorta grew apart, which is sad. I <3 her. Used to do some rp gaming with an entire group of people in Joplin. They hold a big nerd fest meeting once a year.....
I am also a geek!

You are from Missouri? What is with all the "Show Me" atheists on this site? What part of MO are you from?

Yeah, I was being cute. I thought about referring to it as "North Arkansas," but that's just offensive. Anyway, I'm not entirely sure if it's snobbery or pretentiousness. It's a thin line, mon friere. I'm really getting into my logic course and I think it's going to my head. I mean, I recognize a good and bad argument when I see it, but now I can disembowel it with MIND POWAHS!

Frink is afraid he's becoming an intellectual snob while suffering from insomnia @_@ My friends tell me I was already an intellectual snob, heh. What's going in the state of South Iowa?
