Why you left your religion.
I never felt anything, and every time I actually thought I felt God telling me something...it turned out to be the exact opposite of what "God" was telling me.

Even the library is Christian.

Suddenly it's like I've been vacuum sealed in a place without all logic. My library is all Christian fiction, which I should've figured as it's a "Family" library. It's insane. I have to step up my game or get ready for intense verbal combat if I'm going to get out of this with my sanity intact. Either that or harbor my six years of Drama club to hone my lying skills. If all else fails, I'm starting a Secular Students group at college.

 

But how am I supposed to continue lying?…

Ah, crap, there she goes...

Staying with my religious right-wing aunt has been a wonderful exercise in self-control and bottling up emotions, let me tell you. But my education is worth it.

 

However, since she is also a nurse, she is technically also a biologist, as she works in the lab, and while I would usually trust her with scientific information, sometimes it has the feel of a lecture regarding how God fits into the picture.

 

She's given me a book now, called "The Language of God" by…

Selling Your "Soul" For a Free Ride...

Posted on August 25, 2011 at 2:34pm 39 Comments

I've recently entered college, and my college of choice was fortunate enough to be 20 miles down the road from my aunt, who has agreed to let me stay with her for free. Upon the conditions that allow me to stay here are doing chores around the house, taking care of her autistic son with her (he's my cousin, it's not like I was going to say no...) and attending church with the family on Sundays.

 

Does this make me a "bad" atheist? I mean, singing and pretending I believe in the…

Are all teenage atheists going through phases?

Posted on June 11, 2010 at 6:20pm 6 Comments

As a junior at my high school, I participate in a series of events with freshman and incoming freshman to help them get used to the transition from middle school. When at an event honoring the Honor Society (why yes, I AM a nerd, thank you) I was asked what I wished to pursue as a career upon leaving. When I answered "Biology, with an emphasis on evolution" I really didn't think anything of it until later I was pulled aside. A "concerned parent" asked me if I wanted to study evolution because I… Continue

Talk Origins will give you most of what you need to know, from the facts about evolution to claims made by creationists and how they can be debunked.

If you're going to want to learn mopre about evolution, or go to war against creationists; then I agree with Gaytor, you WILL need good "ammo." Definitely visit the site that Gaytor posted, but don't go to battle without visiting this one too.

After you get your feet wet in evolution, Why Evolution is True does a good job of taking Darwin Central Claims and laying them out against contemporary findings and science. Link

"Your Inner Fish" by Neil Shubin is a great book for introducing beginners to how we know and learn about evolution. There are also some good videos on Youtube and this may be a good one for you to start with:

This little diagram is the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection in a nutshell:
