When In Doubt

So, you find yourself questioning the existence of your god. No matter your religion, that’s pretty frightening. All these years, raised to believe that an all-knowing, all-loving being was out there, somewhere, and that he had a plan for you. That your parents and community knew the ‘Truth.’ Most importantly, you’ve been instructed that when you die -if you followed all the rules, or asked for forgiveness- you’d join your loved ones for eternity in a paradise of sorts.

Maybe this…

Looking Back....

It's been an eventful couple of weeks. I've lived in or around Huntsville, AL for a large part of my life. I've lived in other places from time to time, but always seemed to find myself back there for some reason or another. The most recent stint in Huntsville began in October of 2009 and lasted until this past Friday. About two weeks ago, my apartment--which I'd had since March of '10--was condemned because a part of the walkway from the upstairs level fell through. Thankfully, no one was…

CURSING GOD REAPS REWARD - SILLY ANECTDOTE



I think as Atheists many of us simply think differently in a very basic sort of way than our God fearing creationist brothers. Maybe even as children it was a little harder to instill in us the fear of an invisible man in the sky.



I woke up early this morning and lay there thinking about the things I was told about God. I think every other member of my family would call themselves Christian, though few of them regularly attend…

Did I give up on my faith?

This entry was originally posted at my personal blog: RagingRev.com where the original comments and the response from the pastor can still be seen. As a side note I think it is important to say that this pastor and I now regularly have lunch together and are developing a very good friendship built on mutual respect and understanding.







I found out yesterday that a local pastor used me in… Continue

How introducing 'doubt' might be a better strategy for Atheism than any billboard that says there is no god.

After looking back on my own deconversion from Christianity, I've realized that if someone approached me during the days that I still believed in the Christian faith and told me that there was no god, I would have balked at them and politely told them to go to hell. Now that I'm a devout Atheist, I often asked myself how did I go from being a Southern Baptist Christian to a rational, scientifically-minded Atheist.


It wasn't a billboard that converted me. It definitely…

My Story

I grew up going to Pentecostal churches. The earliest church I remember from my childhood burned to the ground sometime around the age of 5 or 6. I don’t really remember too much about it; but the next church was a Church of God. For anyone who is not familiar, this was one of those churches where all the women wore their hair in huge “beehive” hairdos and were not allowed to wear pants, or makeup, or jewelry (not even wedding rings, but my mom did put her foot down about that one, lol). I… Continue
