Face(book) to Face(book) Conversation - LONGEST POST EVER!

I was requested to post it, so why not? Here is the entire transcript from the facebook conversation I had with "the faithful" as was mentioned in my previous article. For anonymity I've chosen to use just first names for each person, if two people share the same first name I'll indicate with the name followed by 1 and 2.



========Disclaimer==========



This conversation is still ongoing and contains 98 posts as of right now, some are quite lengthy. Where I…

Observant (a connection with the angry pastor)

Hello there folks =). Last Sunday, remember that I was invited to attend a church service by that pastor?Well I did attend and observed for two hours. And for a good two hours I was nice and complacent with all those wonderful yet pitiful souls around me. They sang, rant and cry about their faith, I honestly almost started to get sick seeing them like that. Well in all modesty I just kept my mind focus on so many questions that later I'll be asking to their congregation.



In all of… Continue

You just hate god!

How many of you get that?

My answer is quite simply this:

"I do not hate god. I hate your idea of god. I hate your jealous, homophobic, misogynistic, genocidal, pedophile persona of a 'higher power.' I hate the actions that result from a moral code put down by goat herders two thousand years before my birth. I -quite literally- hate the hatred the followers of the Abrahamic god foster upon this world."

I hate your god about as much as you hate Freddie Kruger. Even an imaginary… Continue

AN ATHEIST PRESIDENT!

Can we ever elect an atheist to any national office like president or Congress? I think the answer is, NO! But I did it in a new novel titled, January 20th, and invite everyone to order a copy from amazon.com, or createspace.com/3421670. In this tale after the Obama era, the elected president is an atheist who credits Ayn Rand as the second greatest American behind Washington.



In giving that information away, there is still the agenda on the president's mind that is not atheistic,… Continue

I have only just come out as an atheist

Well, where do I begin? I live in the southeern bible belt of south carolina. Until three years ago I was a southern bapist member and nut job. My life turned around one day at the local book store when I pick up a book called the christ conspiracy. I couldnt put this book down and wanted to learn more so I bought more books on atheism. I hide to kind of hide my actions because my now ex is a sunday school teacher. We were together for 13 years and her dad was the head deacon of the church.…

God bitterness

I don't like seeing people being excessively happy about their god when something goes right and then being bitterly angry when something bad goes wrong.



Someone I know said "You should stop bashing us and God. We're passionate for a reason."



Well, how about you guys be passionate about something productive? Like trying to end poverty and world hunger?



If they were as passionate as trying to help people as they were about simply praying for people, shit would get… Continue

Pretentious Questions on Facebook - Answered

Even though I don't live anywhere near the place I grew up, I still have many friendships and other connections to the people who are still there. Most of them I'm friends with on Facebook. I've gotten in the habit recently of just reading over peoples' status updates to see what's new with my old home.



One guy's updates over the past few months have almost driven me over the edge. Here's a sample:



"[name] Is wondering: who has more faith, the Atheist or the Christian?… Continue

questioning

In my adolescence, I went to many different churches to find what they believed, and why. I was truly seeking knowledge, I was curious. I would listen politely and would never confront or criticize. As I said, I just wanted to know what they believed and why. I have found, however, that when religious people come to me and ask why I'm an atheist, it is seldom because they seek enlightenment. Usually their questions are just a gambit for them to criticize, attack, and try to convert me to their… Continue

The Voice Of God

I was out for a walk yesterday evening along a nearby canal. A breeze came along and blew a few leaves in my path. I stopped in my tracks and watched them settle on the ground; transfixed. I was about to continue when another breeze started up. But this time, along with the breeze I heard a voice whisper "I…

Church Service to Offer Worship Services for Dogs

I stumbled upon this and thought some of you would find this amusing. Another way for the church to bring money in. This made me laugh. What will they think of next?

Angry Pastor

I got a text a message from a pastor neighbor and he was furious about learning of my "bad activities" of "indoctrinizing" his members about atheism. Actually what happened was, last Tuesday, one of his friends/ member came up to me while I was reading a book infront of my house cause this friend of his learned from my facebook account that I am an atheist and asked me a lot of things which I humbly answered with honesty and then in return I asked him tons of questions about faith, morality…

Boy Abandoned by Religious Parents After Receiving a Blood Transfusion

I consider myself to be a fairly easy-going guy. I try not to bother anyone preferring to live and let live.



But nothing gets my tits in a wringer more than when I hear of someone doing something monstrous because of their stupid religious beliefs.



Case in point from Peace FM Online:

A Jehovah Witness man, Kwabena Afum and his wife, Margret Afum aka Abena Oduma, have had a brush with the…
