Atheist, Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I love music. I play the drums. I have a new found love for science. I can't seem to peel myself away from this site!
Why are you here?
Mainly looking for the support of people who believe the same way I do (or lack the beliefs of a god).
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
There are many reasons. Mainly, children are brainwashed beginning at a very young and impressionable age to believe in Christianity and that Jesus is the way. They are never presented with an opportunity to think for themselves and apply reason to what they believe. Critical thinking being taught at a young age and letting children reason for themselves needs to start now! Among a thousand other reasons, of course.

Thank you for the link!
I am fascinated by the neurology of the human brain, especially the similarities between addictive/compulsive behavior and religious priority, drug/religious experience and the areas of the brain stimulated during each.
Forgive the typos. I an on my phone. I just wanted to say thanks for the link.

Here is an article talking about some vines that grew on an utility pole.  Apparently it looks like Jesus!


Wait, I think I see...nope, never mind.  Damn.

This is a great video in response to Ireland's Blasphemy Law that was passed in 2009.  Check out Shane's Page when you get a chance, he's got some really great stuff on there.


One Nation Under Ignorance

Posted on June 14, 2011 at 12:57am 5 Comments

I decided to do a survey on Facebook to see how people felt about 1) the phrase 'Under God' being removed from the Pledge, and 2) creationism being taught in schools.

1. Should 'under God' be removed from the Pledge of Allegiance?

2. Should creationism be taught in public schools?

Both answers should include why or why not, not simply yes or no.


Here are some of the answers I…

What a wonderful way to tell WOMEN that if you're bangin' dudes before marriage, then you're knockin' boots with a crazed lunatic set on wiping all Jews off of the face of the map.  With syphilis.  Stay pure ladies.
