Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist, Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I'm an American working in Israel to pass the time while I try to get dual citizenship through my wife. I'm originally from a small-town Missouri, southern Baptist household, but was lucky enough to have an atheist, college professor for a father.
Age
25-30
Why are you here?
Was looking for an avenue to express my thoughts on religion and philosophy and hear feedback from like-minded individuals.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
As I studied history for my MA I came across (not for the first time, but the first time I truly understood it) the concept of historiography, or the history of history. While wrapping my mind around writing a historiographical research paper, I found myself applying this methodology to religion and it cut right through the foundation of all I once thought I believed in. My journey into scientific thought and religious unbelief has yet to cease.

Tom: Um no [ME], other way around. If either A or B, if not A, then B. That is sound tested philosophy. Thus, argumentally speaking, either side could prove one side right by proving the other side wrong. Besides, what person in the world would ever believe anything that they cannot see the evidence of? Totally ignorant from a… Continue

Face(book) to Face(book) Conversation - LONGEST POST EVER!

Posted on May 11, 2010 at 4:15pm 2 Comments

I was requested to post it, so why not? Here is the entire transcript from the facebook conversation I had with "the faithful" as was mentioned in my previous article. For anonymity I've chosen to use just first names for each person, if two people share the same first name I'll indicate with the name followed by 1 and 2.



========Disclaimer==========



This conversation is still ongoing and contains 98 posts as of right now, some are quite lengthy. Where I…

Pretentious Questions on Facebook - Answered

Posted on May 8, 2010 at 5:00pm 3 Comments

Even though I don't live anywhere near the place I grew up, I still have many friendships and other connections to the people who are still there. Most of them I'm friends with on Facebook. I've gotten in the habit recently of just reading over peoples' status updates to see what's new with my old home.



One guy's updates over the past few months have almost driven me over the edge. Here's a sample:
