Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
I started questioning religion when I was around ten years old. I was 'married' to a xian for 20 years, have three brilliant children - divorced. Have for the last 20 odd years lived de facto. Am so pleased more Atheists are banding together to counter argue religion. I used to be a quiet Atheist, but found I had to have very logical discussions, and make a christian understand that they had to convince me of god, not the other way around. They want to believe in fairies (if only) or whatever, go for it. Leave me out of the delusions, and do no harm.

I actually wouldn't care what people believe in. It is when it intrudes on everybody's life, puts fear into the heads of children, makes people feel they have sinned with man made rules, intrudes into secular schools, the charlatans and soothsayers earning heaps from gullible people,then there are the hierarchies of all religions, who simply cannot believe in a higher power, when in fact they are committing Crimes Against Humanity, and raking in millions, while they hide behind the cloth, the cross, and a big smile.

The denigration of Evolution and Science - That is the deal breaker - Religion keeps people dumb, it keeps people in a narrow bubble of information. Religious people of all persuasions don't do any research on how their particular religion came into being.

Atheists do research and do care.

Why are you here?
We need teamwork to overcome the xians and fundamentalists that are so vocal, hypocritical, anti-evolution and becoming more violent and abusive, all in the name of religion. To expose the fact that 'good people' can kill, maim, rape, torture all in the name of their god.

All religions rely on the naive, the faithful, the fearful, to prop up their particular cult, while the CEO's, the hierarchy, get more power and of course, more money,

The more Atheists the merrier.
The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
General hypocrisy of the church, the rampant pedophilia perpetrated by members of the catholic church, and then the systematic cover up of these Crimes against Humanity, how the different religions turned into a business, when they realized how much money and power they could engender. The violence, crimes, fraud, misogyny and war done in the name of religion made me start to question the bible, at Catechism class. Ah, the Mysteries of God were abundant. That started me on the road to really analyze the Bible. In some of the posts, people don't like being given the label Atheist, but it has to start somewhere. The more 'Atheists' to come out of the closet, the better.

We have to call ourselves something that joins us all.

Like Gays, the more that come out, people will realize just how many we are.

It's an accelerated program, 4 classes in one semester. Yes we will be writing our own vows, but they will contain promises one would make to a sworn brother as well as a lover. Because we are just that. Best friends, Brothers, and Lovers. He is my equal and other half, and I love him with all my heart.

Interestingly, comparing catholicism to other religions on an atheist forum, is like discussing what colour the baubles should be on a non-existent tree.

Ah, I posted that I doubted setting his blog to 'approval' was going to do much for his street cred.  I think he saw the point :)

Well, I'm cackling away here - you must have got under poor Bob's skin, laughs he has re-set his Pope thread to pre-approve comments before they are posted!  Is that not too ironic for words?

Right now I'm focused on getting through my AutoCAD classes and getting a good job. Then I'm going to sponsor his move to the US and we'll go from there. This might take a year or more, and if Texas does a complete 180 on it's marriage views, that'll be great, otherwise, the nearest state we could go to would be Iowa, and I'd have to get in touch with a wedding planner or coordinator and find a suitable venue. I'd like to get a Renaissance Faire so I don't have to go through the trouble of finding people to come, but those usually have packages that don't allow for deviations, and they're usually very cookie cutter. I have something very specific in mind. And my husband to be has some very specific armor he wants to wear, not costume grade either.

That is excellent evidence.  Don't just link it - copy and paste some of the children's comments - you know he can't click links that rattle his cognitive dissonance.

Grin - he's a creep, but I was going to find a damn site if it killed me.  Soon as I realised I should search paedo rather than pedo, it was all there.  Now Arch has quoted extensively fro the link I gave and SteveInCo is on to him too.  He is the slimy type.  We can't win, because what's the prize?  Bob as an atheist?  ugh.  Your posts are great, but he will wriggle because he has to.  What a vile specimen of a human!  Makes you glad we aren't associated with him.

I know Suzanne.  I felt the same last night.  I really do know. 

Remember that if you drag a white glove through a muddy pool, it's never the mud that gets glovey.  I was close to vomiting over my last post, and I don't want to deal with his response.  I'm leaving that to Kris and H3xx.  He is the seedy epitome of exactly what he represents.

I'm assuming you mean this blank entry.  Ning did an update to their software two days ago, suspending site access.  Since then a few weird anomalies seem to have occurred.  Hawk posted that a flood of Facebook TA posts appeared, that dated back a couple of years.  Unfortunately there isn't a way to capture text lost in the ether.  Very frustrating, particularly as you post such thoughtful posts.  Fortunately it doesn't happen often.  If I write a long post, just before I hit 'submit, I highlight it and hit 'copy'.  It's saved me once, but that was still worth it for me.

Thanks for liking my page - they are the Seven Deadly Sins, grin....

Thanks for that link - what an interesting article!
