Scott replied to Gaytor's discussion 'Atheist Preachers'
"Christians evangelize because they think they are saving people from hell. They do it with good intentions. Likewise, atheists evangelize because they see that religion is psychologically abusive, divisive, and damaging. I fully support the idea of…"

Scott replied to Tyler Lewis's discussion 'Death and dying'
"That's a great xkcd. It's really kind of a pointer to the fact that "you" are nothing more than just a concept. "You" don't really exist concretely, "you" only exist in the abstract. So only the CONCEPT…"

Freek replied to Scott's discussion 'Ex-True-Christian'
"I found that really little changed, life just goes on. And that actually added to my disbelief. But this may be different to you, since the transition will be steeper because you were more 'high' on Jesus (pun intended). If you do notice…"

"Hehe, that's a great way to discuss with them. I'll have to try it sometime. (Gotta put aside my personal need for people to realize I was genuine...)"

Freek replied to Scott's discussion 'Ex-True-Christian'
"It's not just that is doesn't bother me that much. It's also a pretty good silencer to ask christians "Okay, I never really knew Jesus/God. You have any way to fix that?" Since hey really want to fix that. Usually the…"

Scott replied to Tyler Lewis's discussion 'Death and dying'
"There was another thread on here in which someone said, "I view death as a return to the state I was in before I was born." That's probably the best description I've ever heard, but I have to add something to that.   If…"

Heather Spoonheim replied to Scott's discussion 'Ex-True-Christian'

"Yeah, I'm a little more "fresh" out of the faith (about a year). I'm curious what it will be like as it continues to fade."

Heather Spoonheim replied to Scott's discussion 'Ex-True-Christian'
"If there is one thing I've learned from reading up on science it is that almost all my instincts about the world around me are wrong.  Religion taught me that some things which seem absolutely self-evident can be absolutely non-evident.…"

Scott replied to Scott's discussion 'Ex-True-Christian'
"You hit the nail right on the head with the discussion of "unanswered prayer." I hit a point in my spiritual journey where I had to be HONEST with myself about unanswered prayer. I was also getting so FRUSTRATED with other Christians who…"
