"That's not exactly what I was thinking. I was thinking of a character that is atheist but that is just part of his personality not the focus of the story. "

Cavemen were probably confused by creation

"The caveman looks like Vincent, Danny Davito's character from Twins. Oh and funny too. If this cartoon lasts for 4-5000 years it will be sacred. Hahaha."

Kevin Marks replied to Cathleen Sessions's discussion 'Christmas culture vs religion'
"This is an interesting topic for discussion. The easiest way I can think of to relate this point to my closed minded christian friends is to ask them: If a jewish person were to wish you a happy haunakah, would you be offended? If they are so…"

Kim replied to Kevin Marks's discussion 'Where do I go from here?' in the group Coming Out Godless: What's Your Story?
"I hope this is a wound that time will heal for you as it did for me. I felt that guilt as well. When loved ones reacted poorly to my "coming out", I felt like I had hurt them perhaps unnecessarily. One point that a fellow atheist pointed…"

Kevin Marks replied to Ava Wilson's discussion 'Are they in it for the money?'
"Just as a thinking point: For years after my wife and I stopped attending church, we received calls asking why we were no longer tithing. However, we never one received a call to ask why we were no longer attending.  Thus tells me a lot about…"

"If you're questioning your Christianity, the last thing you should do is ask a Pastor. That would be like asking a bartender to open a tab for you if you were an alcoholic trying to give up drinking. Lexy might be very, very confused, but most…"

Emmy Ellison commented on Kevin Marks's blog post 'Where do I go from here?'
"You should feel no guilt. The people who feel a certain race or sex is inferior feel no guilt. Killers rarely feel guilt. Thieves don't feel guilty for their dirty deeds. You simply feel within yourself that there is no god. This is not a…"

Where do I go from here?

My story is not one of becoming an atheist or turning away from religion as a recent event. From a very early age I smelled a rat but was unsure of what exactly was going on. I was sure that my parents, and all the other adults, wouldn’t lie to me. That was nonsense; it had to be. Why would there be this huge conspiracy to confuse one little kid. So I worked arduously over the next several years attempting to convince myself that I had surely made a mistake and there was some reason I was…See More

About Me:
I'm a closet atheist, mainly for fear of persecution. I do not worry about myself as much as I do for my children. While I'm always ready for some good, honest, even heated discourse, I do not choose to thrust hardship upon my children for a cause I have selected.
Age
31-35
Why are you here?
I enjoy engaging in open logical discussions in a forum that allows one to disassociate their "feelings" and truly get down to the substance of the argument.
The religion you left
Christian, Judaism
Why you left your religion.
I could no longer go along with the dogma simply because it was the easier route.

To clarify, I am not questioning my "christianity". I am an atheist. Of that part I am sure. My sore spot in the whole thing is that I went along with it for so long because it was the easier route and that I convinced others to do the same. I am sure of my beliefs; I only feel guilt because I slowed others from shedding their religious oppressors sooner. Now, if asked I speak my true opinion.

If you're questioning your Christianity, the last thing you should do is ask a Pastor. That would be like asking a bartender to open a tab for you if you were an alcoholic trying to give up drinking. Lexy might be very, very confused, but most of the atheists here are certainly not!
