(Chuckle) Love It When A Preacher Packs It In!
http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2014/02/10...hpt=us_bn3

Quote:I enrolled into Liberty University’s seminary, aspiring to be a scholar and hoping to get a doctorate in church history. I graduated with a master’s of arts in theology in December.

But, to my complete shock, I found that my doubts led me into atheism. As part of my study at Liberty, I was exposed to many criticisms against belief in God. After studying theology and philosophy, I realized the Bible was not the word of God. Supernatural miracles did not happen. Jesus Christ was a mythical figure who did not rise from the dead.

My faith completely collapsed, but a clarification settled in my heart.

I understood that God is an ancient but powerful superstition. I signed up for Clergy Project, where I found fellow ministers who doubted the existence of God. They helped me deal with emotions I felt and helped me set new goals for my life.


Reality loves a moron come to his senses!

I can't follow that link. Is that the same story EvolutionKills posted about a few days ago? It sounds really similar, although it doesn't appear to be word-for-word.

Ditto. The link went to 'page not found'.

Min, was it this one?

It was a new story from CNN.

This works when I try it. Not sure what the problem is up top.

I don't see what's funny about it.

I think gloating when a believer realizes they've been brainwashed is just going to make atheists look like complete arseholes.

Losing your religion ain't a pleasant experience, especially if you've devoted your life to it.

To the guy in question, I'd commend him for thinking for himself when he's been brought up not to. Free thinking isn't so easy when you've been conditioned to fear skeptical inquiry.

I agree with ParanoidSam. The guy can't help having been raised and conditioned from birth to believe in religion. Congratulations are in order I think.
