The Diary of A Prodigal

My past lives in my hometown.  And the past is...

ignorant. humble. high. toilsome. joy. sorrow. purpose. embarrassing. prophetic. beautiful. raw. aching. sound. shameful. misled. honor. lonely. dead.

Devastating. Shameful disgrace. Leaving the love of my life! I grieve the loss of my Christ, my everything.

And it took all the courage in the world.

I'm disappointing the people I love the most and I'm learning to be okay with it. From being pushed away, I'm…

Could a "Heat Death" be Necessary for Life? The Second Law Redefined

We have met the "heat death" of the universe in progress, and it is... us?



EXCERPT "Organic cells form, reproduce, and die within complex organisms that are born, reproduce, and die, within species and civilizations that eventually result in new species and civilizations or simply carry on until they become extinct. All because stars are born, die, and are replaced, some former and current stars facilitating habitable planets and life."…

Life After Death

OK, so this post is very long overdue. I have been struggling to keep up to my blogging duties due to the small matter of university exams. However, you will be pleased to know that they have finished, and so has my blogging hiatus. So, a welcome back is in order.

I am going to start this post by saying that…

Two Distinct Ways of Leading One’s Life

There are two distinct ways of leading your life. The first is to follow someone else into obscurity – blind, cold, and full of false promises. All over the world, there is a plethora of false prophets ready to abuse your faith and trust, ready to betray you at the next moment if it is to their own advantage.

The second, then, is to enlighten the way in front of you by your own lights – take reason as your guide, and it shall never betray you. You may be wrong from time…

Just A new one.

My first blog.. let's hope we don't get bored?

I have been working alongside people of whom moved to my country from India. When i started my job (my FIRST job at 16) I hoped i could be guided and helped along the way. Don't get me wrong- i was; by the owner. He (who came from KENYA and INDIA) left us in charge when he thought i was able to sustain the shop on my own (after three months) Which meant i was left to work around my manager and three colleagues (one of which no…

How irrelevant is a human life?

Hello all, I recently have just been to myself, and began to think deeply about life in its entirety.  This self-discussion has led to a small amount of depression. I feel as if religion puts value on human life, and yet at the same time, looks down on it, looking forward to the "afterlife". They say thou shall not kill, etc, all moralistic things in human nature.  Then they say, just follow your "god" and you'll have eternal love/happiness/etc in the afterlife.  My point is, I have come to…

How do you tell the person your dating that your a Agnostic/Atheist?

Hello everyone,

I just joined Think Atheist and have finally got the courage to stand for my own beliefs.

But my girlfriend believes in God and is a devout Catholic. She once told me that she

didn't know how she could have a relationship with me if I didn't believe [in god]. So...

I don't know what to tell her, and I don't want to lie to her anymore. Any suggestions?

How I came to atheism.

I was inspired by another member's blog entry to post about how I came to reject religion and settle into atheism.

 

I spent much of my childhood in various foster homes. I won't go into detail about the whys of it, just know I was in roughly 4 homes. Each foster family boasted of being a "loving, Christian home". But while in their care I suffered physical and emotional abuse, neglect, and flat out rejection because I wasn't their kid. I felt like an outsider, and I had no one…

The story of the 13 year old atheist!

Hey guys, I'm Victoria, I'm an atheist, and here's my story-



“Me”

I've been an atheist for a year now. If you've read the biography part of my profile, you'll see that I'm 13, almost 14. That's right, I've been an atheist since I was 12, almost 13. I found out about this website by Twitter, and quickly got addicted to reading other peoples stories, and reading discussions, and being recommended books. Before I go on, I need to warn you that this is probably going to be a really… Continue

Book Review: The Good Atheist - That's what he/she said!

I bent the binding of The Good Atheist, Living a Purpose-Filled Life Without God, by Dan Barker, in hopes that I would either come out of it in some way affirmed or finally have a resource for a person struggling with the decision to let go of their faith.  When I closed the book, I felt like a sore eared member of the choir.  The majority of Barker’s book is an appeal to authority and celebrity, a mishap of astonishing proportion when speaking about, to, or for, a community that…

Life, the universe, and everything

As an opener I'd like to state that my worldview has absolutely nothing to do with my atheism. I like to think that were I a theist I would still hold life, the universe, and everything in exactly the same regards. This post is not intended to answer any questions about nor explain my view on theism. Correlation does not imply causation. That being said, let us proceed.

 

Where did we…

A Short Note to My Children as they Grow Older

Beware of those who try to tell you what it is that you must believe.

Beware of those who try to sell you a false morality, based upon an ancient idea of piety or on changing societal norms.

There will never be a shortage of people trying to tell you how you should be living your life or how you should believe. Some of these people even love you and therefore are well meaning. However, always remember what your Daddy…

Bertrand Russel - Prologue to his Autobiography

What I Have Lived For  

 

  Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions, like great winds, have blown me hither and thither, in a wayward course, over a great ocean of anguish, reaching to the very verge of despair.

 

  I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy—ecstasy so great that I…

A little story of my Atheist life...

This is my first blog post, and probably the only one I'll make in for a long time, but this a little story, a scene that happened in my insignificant portion of Humanity's history that I call life.



I'm Portuguese, and it's often said that about 90% of our population is Catholic. The fact that there are so many festivities, religious monuments and "saints" or catholic figures (usually by the name of "Our Lady of -something-") is kind of proof of this. In fact, religion is so… Continue

Another Piece of "A Journey of Faith" [My Memoire] - The Birth of My Sister

This is a part of my memoire, and one of my most powerful personal arguments against the existence of God. It details a newborn infant fighting desperately for her life and her victory, not through a god, but through humanity and lucky chance.

 

 

 

          That night of November 20th, my grandmother made dinner and Rob and Grampa and I sat down anxiously awaiting news. The news came late into the night. I wasn’t…

My thoughts on Creationists

 I've been coming across more and more people who seem to buy into the scam of Creationism. I'm sure everyone will agree that it is NOT science and cannot/should not be used to teach history lessons. I mean, Xenu did throw billions of humans into the great volcano 75 million years ago. So, then why isn't Scientology used in museums? It is because it is a story written in around the 1950's by a MAN. Christianity was written 2000 years ago by MEN. I just don't understand Creationists reasoning…

My Father's Funeneral, An Atheists's Funeral...

   A few weeks ago my father passed away. Like me he was an Atheist. Like me he had been one since he was a young man. I was six when I “became” one, or rather realized, like with Santa, the Easter Bunny,

ghosts and all, it was all made up.

  So in keeping with my father’s wishes we had a non-religious funeral.  I gave the eulogy. I spoke about his life.  What he had…
