First time i found disbelief as a kid

 Hi, i just stumbled upon this site and decided I would share one of the first moments of disbelief in Christianity or deity.

      It was back in maybe 2002 when i was in 2nd grade. I might have been about 8 or 9 at the time. I was living with my grandparents (who raised me as a christian) and we were watching a lot of dinosaur documentaries on discovery channel. So for the next week i had been contemplating the prehistoric creatures. I came to a conclusion of how Rhinoceros' were…

The Beauty of Nature and the Meaning of Life - Without a God

Greetings to the Think Atheist community!

Here is an extract paragraph from one of my older blog posts 'The Beauty of Nature and the Meaning of Life - Without a God':

"To those who see a lack of emotion or poetry in the idea of a godless universe I would ask why an empirical understanding of their existence – along with the inevitable realisation that it is in itself not extremely meaningful as far as the laws of physics are concerned -  is any…

When Christianity was over for my mother

I just got off the phone, having talked with my mother at length about, mostly, Christianity.  I don't know how we got on the topic but it was a great conversation. It was nice to talk about something on an intellectual level, for a change, instead of whatever has gone wrong with whomever in the family.  I cannot believe what she just told me.  She asked me if she ever told me when she knew Christianity was over for her.  She hadn't, and I was afraid of what I was going to hear.

Atheism is a conclusion, not a belief.

This is some thing I wish more people would realize.

Don't Eat Me Bro

Gravity is only the bark of wisdom's tree, but it is what preserves it. ~ Confucius 500 BCE The Lion’s Den

Daniel 4:4 to 12:13



4:4 King Neb dreamed again and this time he remembered what it was about. It was a tree. The tree was a giant beautiful tree that everyone loved. All the people and animals lived together in and under and around the tree. But then a scary messenger appeared from some vague alternate dimension and began…

Beethoven the Radical .

Approximately one week ago , there was a discussion regarding the influence of music on atheism . Many commented on music they felt was important and meaningful . The vast majority of postings regarded popular music and groups . Apart from myself , however , there were only two very brief mentions regarding a composer , without which , todays' popular music would not have been possible . I'm referring , of course , to Ludwig Van Beethoven. A man who singlehandedly freed music from the bonds of… Continue

Resetting the Georgian Calender

About 2 weeks ago I did post on my status a petition to the Royal Society to start a debate on resetting the calender to reflect our true heritage. 

The text of the petition has been altered slightly and I request you to again append your signatures. And I apologize to those who had signed it.

Nothing much may come from it, but I think it will start a discussion that all of us alive today and who are secular would be interested in. There is nothing about 1 BC and 1 AD that…

Anyone want to join my new religion? It's the first two books as a sample. Comparable to Christianity or any other religion of you ask me.

When you actually know what I believe then you can comment!

  Every time my boyfriend meets someone new, he tells that person that I am Wiccan.  There are several reasons this is not good!  First and most importantly, I am not Wiccan, I am Atheist I believe in some of the principals of a variety of faiths/or traditions, but the basis of those beliefs is not religious, rather it is humanistic.  It is the basic principals most humans value, things like trying to be kind to others, not lieing, being ethical, working hard, trying to learn new things,…

joe kelley’s dick size

most men who cry silently

about the size of their cock,

do their best to compensate

by getting a big truck with a

huge sound system, so that

they can parade down the street

to show the whole world what a

big strong man they are---

however,

some men want to prove to the

guy’s driving the big trucks

that their dicks are even bigger,

so they have to get guns &

I'm ok, you on the other hand are crazy.

My Science Fiction club was meeting the other night, and the subject of weird religions came up (most members are christians) and everybody started trashing mormonism and scientology as particularly unbelieveable, when I said: "When you realize why you don't believe in those, you will know why I don't believe yours!  This earned a nervous laugh among the "saved" crowd.  But it did recall to mind all the group therapy sessions I ran at the transitional home.  Everybody realized and agreed…

Being an Atheist in an Atheist country

I saw Cem USLU's post about being an atheist in a muslim community and cannot help but feel sorry for those of you which find yourself in such a situation. I'm not making light of it, nor am I trying to steal thunder, but I happen to live in an atheist country (sort of), and I thought it might be informative to see how it is in this "heaven". I think it can probably be…

Post Holiday Venting Post.

Ugh, so it's been an entire month of holiday garbage. From the passive aggressive nature of my family during their meal time prayers or my parents trying to shove their Catholic bullshit down my young son's throat.

I want to scream at them, but I don't. I keep the peace and don't respond to their faces how angry they make me. So here it is, every response I have kept in my head.

"No mom, I may not believe in Jesus but I still like celebration because it is time I get to spend…

Homosexuality

When asked by a Christian friend this morning, "Do you agree or disagree with homosexuality?"; my response was such:

"I neither agree nor disagree with homosexuality, just as I neither agree nor disagree with trees. Although I do see how the variety of shrubbery makes the earth more beautiful."

Christians Attack

I posted that "Gay Scientists isolate Christian Gene" video to my Facebook wall. And a friend of my mother, who has never said two words to me felt the compulsion to put this intellectual piece into my inbox:

Dear Brenda, 

What a lot of rubbish contained in your recent post.

Were you not taught the science of your own critical thinking when you attended Varsity?

Is it then really necessary to offend others by…

A Response to Dale Headley

"Judging by your spelling, I assume you’re a Brit.  So you folks over there are aware of our shame: the WBC.  

I would be equally interested in what you think of our greater shame: a cowardly acceptance that shooting people down in multiple numbers in schools, theaters, malls, businesses, and streets with military-style weaponry is a cultural norm to be celebrated in our…

Atheism Conversation on Branch

I just created a group for Atheists on Branch (www.branch.com). If you haven't heard of Branch, it's a new conversation startup that's backed by the founders of Twitter and Blogger and is trying to bring great offline conversations, like the ones you have around a dinner table, online. Our group will let us start “branches” with each other really easily, and give us a page where we can share them with people and friends can ask to join. It's like the best…
