I found this forum after listening to Seth's audiobook "DeConverted".

Wasn't painful for me at all, more like cathartic, but that was some 35 years ago now. But we each go through the delirium tremens differently, I suppose. There are plenty of what I would call "nontraditional" atheists here. HouseOfCantor is the prophet of Gwyneth Paltrow. Ego® is an evangelical who's started his own religion based on some bizarre twisted amalgamation of Berkeley's Idealism, the anthropic principle, and The Christ, while being completely and blissfully ignorant of what any of those even mean. DLJ also has expressed his opinion that there is a God, but it is entirely artificial and man-made. I mean hell, even Girly's his own personal Jesus, my own personal Lord and Savior, guess that would make me a "meist". Plenty of leg room for deists around here. Just 'cause "man made God" don't mean the concept is rendered immediately useless to be dismissed out of hand.

Welcome to the Monkey House! ... Enjoy your stay.

RE: Hi
Sorry to waste your time. I realize after all that I am looking for a community of like-minded people. I did get an explanation for why atheists do not think there is a god and that was my main objective here.

Thank you for your good-natured welcome and an explanation to my question. I find myself at odds with your worldview and will now exit this forum.

I suspect your decision is premature. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Whatever set you at odds with the subject of atheism, I hope you take some time to examine it and in and of it yourself, for it is the journey of self-discovery you're on, isn't it? I haven't read or listened to Seths book, but maybe listening to it again may help you identify what it is you're at odds with, and help you come to terms with it.

Whatever you chose to do, I hope you chose what makes you the most happy. Shy

Damn, was it something I said? I hate when that happens. ... Is my fly open? ... Oh my dear fuck yes it is and my little dick is hanging out. That explains it, I can't blame them for excusing themselves and taking their leave. Hell, I would too. Big Grin
