Dennett on how religion offers an excuse to stop thinking

"Faith IS PICKING OUR POCKETS.Religion enjoys tax exempt status and that has to stop.Religion needs to pay its way, since it has been the beneficiary of our 'Freedom of religion.""

About Me:
I recently saw a video on YT that convinced me that the word atheist has been associated IN ERROR with people who do not believe in God, when the word itself only denies theism - a-theism.
The video went on to describe the use of agnosticism, which is "not-knowing" if there is a god.
Since I do not believe there is anyone who can claim with absolute certainty that there is NO God, all one can claim is not being able to know.
I suggest the use of a new word, as far as I know it's new, adeist, for those who believe there is NO evidence for God.
If you claim to be adeist, that might also make you an atheist, unless you practice one of the Eastern philosophies like Buddhism.
I think the issue needs more clarity.

Why you left your religion.
At a very early age I saw the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church. I saw all the pomp and frills as a symbol of the glory of man and not of God. So, while I turned my back on the Church, I still believed there was a Loving God.
Then, later in life, I came into contact with several Mormon Missionaries and began to read the Bible and the BOM. That is when I realized that the Books were written by men and not god.
So, where was God to be found, if not in any book?
I kept reading the Bible, but not as the word of God but as a story created by men, and I was able to see its flaws. I also began a search and after reading many philosophy books and books on many religions, seeing many videos on TV and YT, I came to realize that the best that one could believe is that one CAN NOT know God, and the lack of any hard evidence made me realize that God is just a wishful thought and Heaven/afterlife is even more so.

Book Swap

Posted on July 7, 2009 at 3:00am 2 Comments

Looking for people to sell to or swap books with.
I am presently interested in philosophy and any books written by atheists.
I have a site with some of my books for sale to see, but have many other titles,
that I would be willing to swap on a temporary basis.
http://myweb.cebridge.net/sterpka/books/usedBooks.htm

Actually, I thought a book/CD swap on this site might be a good idea?

Just email me.

George

An alternate option for the moment... It looks like you're not using the Twitter entry in your profile. You could actually put the YT profile link in that line, and it would at least provide exposure on your page that way.

Also keep in mind that the About Me, Why Are You Here, and Why You Left Your Religion sections are free-text boxes that will accept HTML code. And the 'box' section that you can add widgets into can also be used as a free-text box that will accept HTML code.

I will still look into it; but just so you know there are a couple options you could try using right now.

I'll talk to Morgan and see if the YD ID is something that can be added.

I've watched quite a few of from Evid3nc3's Deconversion series, but haven't checked his channel in quite awhile. Looks like he has a lot of new episodes, I'll have to catch up; thanks!
