Your Religious Status
Atheist, Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I was the one who never really believed. I was the one who kept telling myself that there was something wrong with me. That once my Bat Mitzvah happened I would "see the light" and all my doubts about my religion would disappear and I would really believe in god. When that (obviously) didn't happen I became agnostic. I was interested in eastern religions for a while because at that point I still felt like I needed to be some religion. In high school I finally started to accept that all religion was total bullshit and now I am completely atheist, although I still believe we can never truly know.

I was the person who never really believed in god but felt like if i just kept trying eventually I would "see the light".

Living life with a crutch

Posted on August 14, 2011 at 3:57am 7 Comments

Someone who I considered a good friend basically said that I can offend people for pointing out their religion is a delusion (my words) and that I can hurt people's feelings.

 

Him: u can offend some decent people who happen to be religious even if u have a point u need consider ppls feelings

Me: i'm not afraid to offend people who think its a virtue to believe in an imaginary guy in the sky

Him: srysly. its more complicated than that. religious ppl hurt deep down…

Depressing Statistics

Posted on July 12, 2011 at 11:12am 5 Comments

I was reading an article about science education in the United State and read some statistics that really surprised me.



 



18% of American adults believe the sun revolves around the earth and 3% are unsure.



32% of American adults believe astrology is either "very scientific" or "sort of scientific".



28% of science teachers stick to National Research Council guidelines when teaching evolution.



13% of teachers "explicitly advocate…

Math Video

I stumbled upon this very interesting math lecture. It's an hour long but worth your time if you're interested in math/physics.

What do atheists do in court?

Posted on May 6, 2011 at 12:05am 12 Comments

So people swear on the bible in court (or whatever religious text they want), but does anyone know what atheists do? I mean if I was ever in that situation and they told me to swear on some religious text I'd probably just laugh at them. Has anyone had experience with this?

Thanks for the comment. In response to your question ("What's it like to believe like that?"): It is truly devastating to believe something so passionately and then realize it's all bullshit. To love someone that doesn't even exist! It is truly frightening how much religion can sabotage your mind and your ability to think for yourself. Words can't even describe it.
