"Living through an impeachment (Clinton) and threats of it to subsequent presidents, I've never seen a constructive rationale drive the process. It's always (recently) been about "conservative values" (hatefully executed), or just…"

Erik Elison replied to Noel's discussion 'Do you keep a bible?'
"As an exMormon I still have my bible, and BOM, I hardly notice them but now as an Atheist it's amazing to go back and re-read some passages in both books with a completely different way of looking at them. So I think I'll get em around LOl."

"After the Republican/TeaP. orchestrated shut down, next move is the Impeachment of President Obama. I don't think that's going to happen, but if it did...it would just make Obama stronger. The polls show that the public has turned on the…"

"They're like squalling toddlers--if they can't control America, nobody will. Ugh, even bleaker: it's the same behavior you see in a scorned lover who kills their ex. "

Government Shutdown & why Obmacare is the Apocalypse

You may have heard Michelle Bachman proclaim that Obamacare is the sign of the Apocalypse over the last 3 weeks. And a recent Reuters article clearly explained just what the F$%# is going on in the minds of the far right wing of the republican party. Basically it boils down to they see their culture their very way of life under attack. The religious right in this country sees America becoming less Christian, less white, less conservative, etc. As an Atheist I applaud this shift but believe me…See More

Erik Elison replied to Scott D.'s discussion 'Anyone listen to music that expresses their views on religion?'
"Music is my religion so yes all the time, 30 seconds is an amazing band but there are so many other great bands, Green Day, Rush, Tool, Godsmack, Mudvayne, then if you really want anti religious you've got black metal foreign and domestic as…"

Ungodly Discipline AC360

Nothing and I mean nothing gets my blood boiling more than religious corporal punishment. I caught another installment of Anderson Coopers Ungodly Discipline segment on TV, I then watched more on youtube and learned about The Independent Fundamentalist Baptists or IFB. After listening to the stories from 'survivors' told and hearing about those who did not survive their godly punishment. After my initial rage I thought this: Why in America are these religious institutions or cults given so much…See More

Erik Elison replied to Unseen's discussion 'What do you dislike about Mitt Romney?'
"First off, great question, the absolute number 1 reason i hate Mitt Romney is that he is a pathological liar. A man who lies about his own first name cannot and should not be trusted in any situation. I am an ex-mormon as well, so i have insight…"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
I was raised in the LDS 'Mormon' church and left 6 years ago at the age of 26, I met a spiritual leader of a (Non-Christian religious) fellowship which opened my mind to other possibilities, which led to then question even more. I attended the fellowship once and a while and liked its concept of what and who God is but could never bring myself to join. This of course led to further doubt, does God or a God exist? I don't know and am tired of pretending that I do know God exists. This is why I now have no God and am totally free to follow whatever philosophy suites me.
Age
31-35
Why are you here?
I'm here because I think this is a cool site that might have a lot to offer for people like myself, who either were never religious or got fed and left like I did. I also think site might be a great place to meet others who feel the same as I do about religion.
The religion you left
Mormonism
Why you left your religion.
I left the religion of my family after a careful and thought out process of realizing that religion is bull. I even briefly wast attracted to a very kind man who claimed that he met god, although I admire and respect what this man teaches I could not accept the idea of belonging to just another religion. A member and friend told the best line about religion I have ever heard and that is this:Religion is 2 things first it is a man-made theological construct and second it is a tool in which to control human behavior often through fear.

Agora the story of Hypatia

Posted on December 3, 2010 at 11:37pm 1 Comment

I just watched Agora a film by Alejandro Amenábar. This is a beautiful film with a message that I think many on this site will relate too. I knew nothing of Hypatia for some reason she has been almost erased from contemporary history. Agora is about philosophy, astronomy, religion but mostly its about us as a species. It asks how the hows and the whys and is as I have said a beautiful tale - a tragic tale but also a tale of the triumph of reason. This film should be a must see for everyone… Continue

Dawkins latest on the Creationists invasion of the classroom

Just found this little gem and wanted to pass it along, I especially like the title the article.

My only comment is that how sad its going to be in say 100 years when all the remnants of our achievements no longer exist and whats left of the human race has reverted back to cave man and cave women because of this unyielding urge by the religious to excise all and any… Continue

The White Shirt Gestapo

Posted on July 12, 2009 at 10:54pm 5 Comments

It seems that on at least a monthly basis my feelings about and my decision to leave the Mormon church are re-affirmed. Last night I read that a gay couple were detained by LD$ Inc. security while the cops were cops were brought in for walking on church grounds or by church grounds and kissing on the cheek. I went to the Salt Lake Tribune to check this story out further it was there and already has more than 1,000 comments. I liked the one best about how right after a couple gets "sealed"… Continue
