"The most ridiculous, idiotic and insane comment is this one: "Well, everything happens for a reason!" This just infuriates me. For starters, whenever I hear people say this, something has just happened within their little world, they…"
"A beautifully written first commentary you wrote the other day; I was most taken with it. I am new on this site; I seek a little commoraderie from like-minded people, as I live in Texas and am absolutely surrounded by religiosity. I am a somewhat…"
"Hi Erik - I'm new to this site, too, and I too look forward to open discussions that are frowned upon elsewhere. And from Texas, elsewhere is pretty much everywhere.
I've noticed a lot of my fellow atheists here are former…"
"But they never see it as "failed prayer"! They'll say, "God answers all prayers. It's just that sometimes the answer is no." Oh, COME ON!!!!!
I've always wondered: When a child is kidnapped, and the whole…"
"I had a boyfriend in high school whose dad was a surgeon, and he got sick and tired of people thanking god whenever he told them that their husband, or child, or whomever, was going to be okay. Hey, people! he wanted to say. I'm a talented…"
"Peeves me to no end also, and I've also seen it come out of the mouths of people who I know are not religious, as just something to say when things go your way. This is annoying, too.
I wait tables for a living, and two of the guys…"
"What a crock of shit is THAT? So if you're praying that your stepfather will stop beating your mom and stop raping you, but it doesn't stop....the answer was no? If you're praying for the safe return of a kidnapped child, and the…"
"No one has replied to you about the Jesus thing, Scott. Since I was very young I never bought into the god thing, and my mother was the only one in the family of 6 interested in it. She didn't press it. She was disappointed that none of us…"

"I just typed 6 long paragraphs all about my background and our common interests, hit some key and the whole thing disappeared. Words cannot describe my frustration right now. Maybe there is a god and instead of helping people in need throughout…"

Why are you here?
Seeking comoraderie with other free-thinkers! I live in the
Bible Belt and am absolutely SURROUNDED by religiousity! I have to listen to the most ridiculous stuff, and I can tell most of these people just accept 100% of what they've been taught and have never stopped to think things through.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
God's indifference to human suffering. There must be no one there.
