Brandon commented on Gazoo's blog post 'Why is prophecy taken seriously?'
"I've always thought that about the Heaven of Revelations as well.  My mind's eye sees it as a cheap sci-fi movie where there are mindless drones worshipping a huge robot that just so happens to have a beard.  It is also very…"

Cara Coleen commented on Brandon's blog post 'Communication Via Text is Like Having A Conversation with God'
"I would say receiving texts is like reading the Bible, more so than like having a "conversation" with God. Ha... 'cause at least you're not just driving down the road by yourself, having a full-on conversation with an imaginary…"

Communication Via Text is Like Having A Conversation with God

Before I start, I want to let it be known that they are a lot of stimuli where I'm writing this.  It's easily distracting and my premises may not be as well-thought out as I would like.Now, to give a back story on the actual topic... I'm a serial online dater.  The first step after talking via messages or e-mails is to get a phone number.  In this day and age, a phone number is for texting and you need extra permission before actually talking on the phone.  Well, you could wing it, but you…See More

Brandon replied to Joli's discussion 'It's that time again! What's your New Year Resolution?'
"My new year's resolution is to continue trying my best in whatever I do.  I also need to try to understand and follow protocol for the dating experience.  It seems to be easier to insult how others view love and dating than it is…"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
I was raised Christian in the Bible Belt and still deal with the reality of religious oppression on a daily basis. I considered myself agnostic on and off through my late teens and early 20s. I finally stopped going to church when I was 20 and I never looked back. I read the God Delusion by Richard Dawkins when I was 23 along with some other great texts. Then, I realized I was atheist all along, I just needed someone to tell me that it was okay for me to be that way. If I really would put an age on it, I suppose when I started questioning Santa Claus, I started questioning everything.
Age
25-30
Why are you here?
I live in the south and there's not very many non-religious people around to talk to. I have to make friends with the religious right because we have some common interests and I divert from religious and political conversations if possible. I simply want somewhere to vent when I'm in a very militant mood.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I always disliked going to church, but my chance to leave without being judged came when the preacher was caught having an affair. I made the excuse of having full-time employment and ran like the wind.
Think Atheist Travel Network Couch Availability - Are you able to host anyone now?
Maybe
