Our Nightmares are Real

I am closer than I ever have been to disassociating with anyone supporting or endorsing Conservative Christians... and that's significant because most of my family is exactly that. I am disgusted and horrified by these anti-woman bills that are being passed, and the asinine arguments being made to strip of us of our medical privacy and bodily autonomy. I am terrified that these unethical laws will affect me someday... it makes me want to have all my "lady parts" surgically removed just so I…

I once was a Baptist

The Lamentation of Christ, c. 1480. Italian Renaissance artist Andrea Mantegna. At a very early age I began questioning the logic of my parent’s faith. The answers weren’t what I expected. For instance, why did Jesus absolutely have to be tortured to death? Why did our sins have to be paid for and couldn’t there at least be a better way to pay? The souls of humans belong to Satan because of Adam and Eve and they had…

My Heart Attack

   One week ago today after getting home from work I decided to take care a few things around the yard followed by wrestling the spare tire from under the minivan to change a flat. Then it hit, my chest hurt rapid heart rate shortness of breath so I went into the the house. I sat in a the chair while my family asked I I thought I was having a heart attack? I said I don't know, this wasn't passing quickly like a few other times I had simular but not as strong feelings. After 20 minutes I…

The Empowerment of "I don't Know"

The Empowerment of Admitting ‘I Don’t Know’

This is a link to Top Ten Things Believers Say When They mean “I don’t know”.  Most unbelievers have heard all of these at one time or another. I really don’t understand why anyone would be afraid of ‘I don’t know’. Here is a list of 5 reasons why “I don’t know “ is liberating and…

Trust Me, I'm an Atheist: Can Coming Out Build Credibility?

According to a series of recent studies reported in the National Post, it turns out that we atheists are among the least trusted people around, with religious people ranking us along with rapists as the least trusted groups. This doesn't seem very shocking for anyone who has ever expressed their views to someone of faith and why many of us,…

My Testimony (my journey to atheism)

My Testimony

 

DISCLAIMER: It may not be what you’re expecting—it may even upset you—but it’s the truth, and that is truly what matters to me.

 

“I once was lost, but now am found... was blind, but now I see.”

(Amazing Grace)

 

The meaning of those words has changed dramatically for me in the last several years.

 

I was born and raised in the Christian faith. When I was a little girl, we attended a Presbyterian church.…

Australia to remove BC and AD from school history books

The decision by the Australian government to ditch the Christian calendar in school history books has been met by anger.



Instead of BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini), the curriculum will use BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era) instead.



The change in abbreviations does not equate to a change in dates, but the Archbishop of Sydney the Most Rev Peter Jensen has described BCE and CE as “meaningless”.



He said the move yesterday was an “intellectually…

Consolations of Atheism

                                    CONSOLATION TWENTY-EIGHT: POKER

     Always a favorite hobby, poker has become something more to me now that I'm in my late seventies. It's the one competitive activity I can still do with men and women a third my age. Can't do it in sports -- in golf, the only sport I can still play without tearing myself apart, I have to use the senior tees. Can't do it professionally -- I'm retired from all that. Only in poker can I still sit down with 20-, 30-,…

Reaching out to my Freethinking friends....

Hey guys...



I know we use this forum to rally against the opponents of science and reason and for good reason. But I wanted to blog, just for a minute, about our community, because I think it, and you all, are friggin' awesome.



I'm kind of going through a rough time. Oh, no, don't worry... nothing that dramatic. Just a hiccup in the road we call life. But it's been tough and stressful and reasonably so. Money's really tight, work is hard to come by, blah blah blah, nothing… Continue

Is God Hiding?

There are some Christians who cannot be sure if their god is hiding or not. Their answer keeps changing. In debates, they sometimes speak of how all creation points to their god, or how speaking in tongues shows his holy spirit is real. They may speak of healing that could only have come about with their god's help, or how Bible prophecies being fulfilled is proof it was divinely inspired. In their eyes, God isn't hiding. Proof of his…
