Finally took "the plunge".
I've been struggling with what I believe for a long time now. I've been talking to people (Christians AND Atheists) and reading and watching The Atheist Experience shows. I've finally found the strength and got over my fear (Pasqual's wager bs)...

I AM AN ATHEIST. I was raised Catholic. I've come a long way. Tongue

watch the video on my signature if you still think about Pascal's wager every once in a while (so you can crush your fear of it)

Whenever I'm asked "What if you're wrong?", I always show the asker this video: http://youtu.be/iClejS8vWjo Screw Pascal's wager.

Welcome to the forums. Have a pleasant and insightful stay.

btw: Pascal's wager = [Image: bs.gif]
Pascal thought it up being subjected to only one religion.

If anything it tells you how to behave in the 15th century: "say you believe in our god or we will kill/ostracize you".

Pascal was just being a pussy looking for a lifeboat in the desert. And he knew better, he didn't believe that shit.

Sorry for the dude comment... I don't have a buddy term for women. All the female friends I've had I called dude. What do you call a lady that equals dude?
