"Wasn't it religion that originally funded science? There were no secular groups. They were executed. Talk about a monopoly."

Joseph Barney commented on Ronald Pyatt's blog post 'Christianity does not teach morality'
"That's what I mean. Even today there's parents that shouldn't be parents. My dad was one of those people. He's calmed down now that he's old but when I was younger I got the living crap kicked out of me for no reason at all.…"

Joseph Barney commented on Ronald Pyatt's blog post 'Christianity does not teach morality'
"That particular scripture assumes that the parents are good. There's a lot of bad that parents do even these days, and not just in the USA. I'm sure it happened back then especially. Say, a father is being abusive to the teen and the teen…"

Joseph Barney replied to Kelsey Hayes's discussion 'Anyone out there?'
"Oh cool my family on my mom's side is Mexican and on my father's side they're American cowboys. I speak a bit of Spanish as a result. I'm not really into the Mexica Movement actually especially because they basically want their…"

Joseph Barney commented on jen o's group 'Spiritual Abuse'
"I joined this group because Mormons are like this and why I resigned from the lds church. They put me through hell. My father was abusive as was the lds church and Mormons covered things up and even encouraged the abuse. Not all were bad but enough…"

Joseph Barney commented on Michael Archambault's group 'eBook Reading Atheists'
"Checking out ebooks from my local library is great. They return themselves! I gotta say I like DRM! My iPad is perfect for ebooks too! Now if they'll only add more books."

Joseph Barney commented on brailsmt's group 'Exmormon Atheists'
"Nice to see this group. I've been through all kinds of abuse because of and by Mormons. I live in a Mormon neighborhood in North Ogden, Utah and still get comments from neighbors and I feel intimidated and unsafe. The Mormon religion is creepy."

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist, Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic, Other
About Me:
Was gifted as a kid, as of 18 years a TBI survivor. I like science and digital photography, sports, books, the Internet, my iTouch, computers, the outdoors like hiking and mountain biking, beer, sex, video games, college, family, events, movies, music and nature including astronomy.
Relationship Status
Why are you here?
To connect with other atheists. I'm in Utah and it's a red state. There's too many religious freaks here.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
The bible is contradictory and full of shit. It's a warfare tool or what's left of it. Religion drove manifest destiny and not just on the American continent. I'm part Mexican and I don't want to be another conquest of religion like my Aztec and Mayan ancestors.
