God on Facebook

I am sure many of you avoid Facebook, but for those who partake there is an interesting guy who is Atheist or at least Agnostic who has the name "God" on Facebook. He is a comedian in the UK, is quite funny and very kind to those who show basic human decency. He also helps those who are reaching out, like people with suicidal thoughts, and refers them to hotlines and the like. He also is funny and harsh to those who spew hate (often Christians), and posts their silliness and hypocrisy for…See More

Why you left your religion.
Xian Scientists supposedly do not use doctors (and occasionally run into difficulty due to that) however, as a teen found out that all of my church leaders used doctors almost regularly. So in the end I feel that Xian Science is a type of reverse hypochondria. Not necessarily a bad thing--controlling your thoughts in a way that makes you well--but not to be ascribed to any outside factors. I did some searching into others, but most of them turned me off. Unitarian Universalism worked for a little while, they are generally more open, but they also seem to be reaching for something unspecified. So here I am. Cheers.

Took some time off of think atheist but I still love this forum. Good to see many of you again. Some of the regulars seem to be gone/on hiatus like me. Did I miss something?

BTW my neighbor here in Dublin Ireland is from just outside Cleveland. A mighty fine woman she is too.

Thanks you for your kind words. I am all about reason and logic but mainly about helping people to see the beauty of the world with the fog of religion clouding their views or letting them be secure in their fear of holding on to it.

It is almost a full time job...lol
