My Dad is terminally ill with a rare cancer.  It has been a terrible thing to go down this path with him.  I do feel helpless in the fact that there isn't anything, other than being there, that I can…Continue

Ignosticism or Atheism?

Started this discussion. Last reply by John Kelly Jan 4, 2012. 6 Replies

"This is a classic instance of where no possible good can come from an atheist intervention. You'll just look insensitive and worse. My father died recently and the only time I let my atheism come up was when my sister asked me if I wanted to…"
