I believe I can thank my atheism for that,…See More

"Read the book "Courage to Doubt" written by a friend of mine Steve Hurlin (Raider Books NY) who was a Christian missionary who became atheist. His journey was interesting and the social dissonance quite violent...good easy read"

So I'm not good at staying active on social networking sites like this... I told myself I was going to but it didn't happen haha. Aaaaanyways, for the past month or so I've been continuing my feverish research and I can confidently (on the internet, at least) say that I'm an atheist. Woo!



Until last night my boyfriend was the only person who knew, but I sent my (hardcore Christian) best friend a facebook message (because I'm too much of a chicken to tell him…

The critical question for our generation--and for every generation--is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ was not there?

So the post I made in the "Coming Out Godless" group got a lot of awesome feedback.... that's super cool. :) I feel like I've found a great place to talk to people about this stuff.


Since it's the beginning of the quarter and I'm not totally bogged down with schoolwork yet, I've started doing some pretty heavy research. It's kind of difficult to know where to begin, so I'm starting with some of the names/books/videos/etc that people mentioned in the comments on my first…
