Shawnda commented on Chris G's blog post 'Blasphemy'
"I thought that taking the lord's name in vain meant: 1. Not to use god's name to persecute people for example, homosexuals or minorities. 2. Not to use god's name to plunder resources from the Earth without regard for the Earth. 3.…"

Shawnda replied to Misty: Baytheist Living!'s discussion 'Atheism means giving up more than religion.'
"That's why I like ghost stories, it's a rush to be scared. I guess that's why people ride roller coasters and bungee jump!"

I Am the Missing Link

Growing up, there was little choice and certainly no discussion as to whether anyone believed in god, they just did. Every school meeting, football, basketball or baseball game was prayed over, and as a teenager my social life was full of church-centered activities. I went to church camp in the Summer, I attended year-round youth group classes, there were Christmas parties and bonfires and puppet ministries to keep me busy and "doing god's will". My first two years in college were spent much…See More

Why you left your religion.
My de-conversion started during my second year of college when one of my friends wanted me to get on the pro-life bandwagon. It dawned on me that I didn't want anyone to tell me what I could or couldn't do with my own body, so I wasn't about to tell someone else what to do with theirs. It took a few more years for me to give up religion, but after a few more experiences, I abandoned it but kept my belief in god. I finally gave up my belief in god about ten years ago. But I've only called myself an atheist for the last few months.
