Serena Woodward replied to Robert Karp's discussion 'There is no such thing as intrinsic humanity, Humanism itself is false consciousness.'
"The point of the original article was that atheists seem to want to avoid discussing the differences in people at all.  While I'm sure this isn't the case, I was simply voicing the way I see things.  It's true that at a…"

Serena Woodward replied to Robert Karp's discussion 'There is no such thing as intrinsic humanity, Humanism itself is false consciousness.'
"When we talk about what it is to be *human* most people define it with a set criteria like the ability for rational thought and the ability to feel empathy for your fellow humans.  To some extent I agree with that, but I do believe that there…"

Serena Woodward replied to Jason Ward's discussion 'What is the worst excuse given by the faithful?'
"They use that one a lot when they are trying to defend the position that the world isn't as old as scientists say it is."

Serena Woodward replied to Jason Ward's discussion 'What is the worst excuse given by the faithful?'
"I pointed out to a religious friend of mine once that Jesus's name wasn't even Jesus...it was Joshua.  I got a blank stare for my trouble."

Serena Woodward replied to Jason Ward's discussion 'What is the worst excuse given by the faithful?'
"You should try going to a Mormon church on fast and testimony Sunday (First Sunday of every month). The idea is that people are supposed to get up in front of the congregation and give their personal testimony of how the Heavenly Father has…"

Serena Woodward replied to Jason Ward's discussion 'What is the worst excuse given by the faithful?'
"I asked this question for the first time in Sunday school when I was seven. ( I got kicked out of class....)  Adam and Eve were the only people on earth.  They had two children, making the total four people.  Cain killed Able. …"

Serena Woodward commented on Eli's blog post 'What Would Jesus Do?'
"Humor and Christ....always good.  Three of my favorite t-shirts: "Jesus is coming! Look busy!"  , "I found Jesus, he was behind the couch with the remote" and "Jesus Loves You! The rest of us think your an…"

Serena Woodward replied to MikeLong's discussion 'Why Argue'
"I believe in being as respectful of someone else's beliefs and opinions as I want them to be about mine.  I will engage in debate with a person, no matter what their belief system, as long as they can remain non-aggressive.  I began…"

Serena Woodward commented on Tasha Cain's blog post 'So alone in this part of the country'
"Where in Montana?  I live in North Dakota and know exactly how you feel.  I have to watch what I say because I have a seven year old son and if people knew I was "ungodly" I'm fairly sure they wouldn't let him play with…"

Mindless Rural Southerners Lose Their 10 Commandments

"Sadly, this type of issue isn't going to go away anytime soon.  Mostly because the religious right is well organized and well funded.  The only way we will be able to combat this type of thing is to become more organized and more…"

Serena Woodward replied to Epiphileon's discussion 'Atheistic Spirituality'
"Spirituality, faith and religion are all seperate things.  Religion is the one I have an issue with.  Spirituality and faith can be applied to a life without including a deity in the equation. "

Serena Woodward replied to Kaleigh Snow Breedlove's discussion 'Hypocrite???'
"My son is seven and he has started to ask questions about all kinds of things, including god.  Because I, like you, want him to make his own decisions I have decided to take the following stance...when he asked me, "Mom, is Santa Claus…"

Serena Woodward replied to Robert Karp's discussion 'Bow Your Head? Close Your Eyes? How to act when saying grace 101.'
"I do lower my head, but do not close my eyes or fold my hands.  I do this out of respect for the people I care about.  Lowering my head doesn't indicate I'm taking part in the prayer, to me it amounts to being the same thing as…"

Serena Woodward replied to Choscura's discussion 'Should Theistic beliefs even be acknowledged?'
"You logic is flawed.  Religion, just like any other belief system, isn't grounded in rational thought.  It's based on emotion and "belief".  You can not "shock" someone out of believing in god anymore…"
May 16, 2011
Serena Woodward replied to Choscura's discussion 'Should Theistic beliefs even be acknowledged?'
"If you are going to apply this logic, then it must be applied equally.  Because Christians do believe in god they would be allowed to say there is no such thing as an atheist.  Your belief that there is no god directly contradicts what…"

Serena Woodward commented on Robert Karp's blog post 'The Famous Texas Board of Education is at it Again. Creationsim.'
"When you look closer you see that a lot of the individuals pushing for this type of thing are all clinging to "the good old days".  Fear drives a lot of what people do.  If they let go of "god", then what else is…"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I hate the "about me" portion of these things. It always makes me feel like I should start my sentence with "Hello, my name is Serena and I'm an..." I'm a mother and several other things that would take to long to list.
Age
36-40
Why are you here?
Looking for a place where I can find intelligent discussion that includes healthy debate on subjects we don't always agree on.
The religion you left
Christian, Mormonism
Why you left your religion.
I got tired of listening to people talk about what good, loving Christains they were in one breath and then begin to spout hatred, intolerance and ignorance with the next.
