About Me:
Michigan resident. Mother of 4, grandmother of 2
Why are you here?
I would like to meet and communicate with other athiests. I feel it is time athiests caame out of the closet and united. I believe we need to challenge believers at every opportunity and point out the absurdities of their beliefs.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
I had many life experiences which caused me to doubt. I researched the bible heavily and found it to be complete hogwash. Christianity does not even make sense from a philosophical standpoint. Needless to say it does not stand up to historical scrutiny

Judeao Christian Values

Posted on June 20, 2011 at 9:48pm 0 Comments

I recently had an argument with my sister who is a fundie, about our country being/not being founded on "Judeao Christian values".  I would like to discuss it further, but she already called me a bigot for not entertaining this fantasy, so I thought maybe some of you could help me out.

   What exactly ARE Judeao Christian values anyway? Does that term mean the same thing to everybody, or is it like their god, and everybody has a different idea about it? On what do they base the…


Respect? Really?

I have been an atheist or about a year now, and have described myself as a born again evangelical atheist, by which I mean that I am one of those in your face atheists. I do not generally bring up the subject, but when people say unfounded often stupid things about gods, I typically jump down their throats. Often, the only card or at least the final card that they play is to demand that I…


How I became a Born again Evangelical Athiest

Posted on June 23, 2009 at 11:42am 8 Comments

Let me begin by explaining what I mean by born again evangelical atheist. By born again, I refer to a definite point in time that ended all discussion of the existence of a god for me. It was an “aha” moment, much like born again Christians describe in their conversion process. For me it was a moment when I finally said “That’s it! I am done with god”. By evangelical I mean that I feel it is my moral obligation to relieve the world of its current god based delusions. I believe that the future… Continue

Wow, I just finished your story, and I'm amazed. It seems us atheists from the north have the worst luck in the world... I don't have a full story as you do, just a brief overview in the comments on "Whose life sucks and why? Give me your perspective!" Also, just for clarification, I'm from Michigan, but right now I'm stuck in Arkansas for a little while. Glad to make your acquaintance, and I hope your problems work themselves out well. ~Maggie

Thanks for your story on the "My Story" thread. It's quite different from mine (ardent skeptic before teenage) but very interesting! (I agree that it would make a great book!) There is more than one pathway to enlightenment. And hey, we're all swimming upstream to get there! Rob

I wanted to send you a PM, but I can't until we're friends :). Your blog was extremely moving and struck a personal chord with me. It's amazing how similar our stories are. Thanks for posting that. If you PM me your address, you can have a free Learn to Think Atheist bracelet if you want it!

When you click on the 'Blogs' option in the menu bar, the page has a 'Featured Blogs' section, which lists blogs that are considered to be of special interest.

*grin* You can indeed.
At 11:19am on June 23, 2009, Dave G said…
Sure thing. First, use cut-and-paste to copy your post into notepad or the like on your system, so you'll have it handy. Next, mouse over the 'Blogs' entry on the menu bar at the top of the T|A page, and choose 'Write a Blog' from the dropdown list. This'll take you to the Add a Blog page. Type in a title, like 'My Conversion Story' or whatever you like, then cut-and-paste your post into the Entry section. Finally, click on Publish Post, and you're done.

Your story was fine, Joann. I would like it if you could cut and paste it into a blog post, as I would like to feature it, and comments (as opposed to blogs) cannot be featured.
