When a Jehovah's Witness Grows Up to be an Atheist

After all this time, all these years, all these degrees of separation - a mere knock guides me to shedded enemies. It was midmorning when a pair of shadows alerted me to some unexpected presences. I think I knew before I knew, my gut clenching beyond the usual spasm of social anxiety.

The blockers of the light lingered and adjusted themselves and finally put knuckle to…

"I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made." -Yahweh(?)/Moses(?)

I don't know about you, but that sure sounds like a guy I'd want to worship!

/sarcasm

No. My thoughts are more similar to this point of view:

noah

Really, it's more like a dad who drowned all of his children except for one kid and was like, "Don't worry. I won't murder you or any of the kids I have from here on out! Well, at least not by drowning all of them in a massive flood... You know I mean it too because I made you a pretty painting."

The truly…

My first post and I've been invited to argue the bible by a Jehovah's Witness... wow.

Hi guys,

Let me say straight away, this is not the blog post I wanted to make as my first. However, I find myself in an unusual position.

Today, I went to the pub. While there I got talking to a lovely couple with two children about their gorgeous puppy bitch (that fell asleep in my arms). The conversation moved on to my family and to my father's (and my) atheism, my mother career as a nurse and my vast array of siblings. I also mentioned that one of my father's…

Working with a Jehovah's Witness

It's sort of an interesting predicament I find myself in. On the one hand my coworker (we'll call her Jane, for the purposes of anonymity) is a perfectly lovely girl, and I rather enjoy her company. On the other, some of the things that come out of her mouth well and truly offend me.

The problem with being secular is that every time I find myself offended by a non secular comment, society makes me feel as though I don't have a right to be offended. But when someone literally says "I…

JW Disowns Five Year Old Son

In Ghana a young boy was found to be anemic. His parents realize that he's sick and they take him to the hospital. What they didn't understand is that their son's illness was about to lead to a blood transfusion, a forbidden act for the Jehovah's Witnesses. An act so reviled that it would warrant these parents disowning their son who was just five years old. Article… Continue

How I turned my family onto atheism! Also my autobiagraphy & why my name is "luvtheheaven".

I'd like to establish why I have such a username. But more importantly, I want to truly establish myself here since I'm new. :D I want to tell you all who I am and how I became an atheist. :D And also I'll end up telling you how I turned my family onto atheism. I know this is LONG, sorry. Insanely long truly. But in the future my blog posts will probably be a LOT shorter.



I don't believe (and quite frankly have never believed) in Heaven. I've also never believed in God I don't think.… Continue

Skepticism 101: Will the world end in 2012?

Here's an excerpt from my latest Examiner article: "For thousands of years people have been predicting the end of the world, often even supplying specific dates near in the future that it would happen. And so far as I can tell, every single last one of them has been demonstrably proven 100% wrong." To read the rest, click here.
