RE: I need to rant to other atheists.
I haven't heard about this Questioning Darwin is this a new feature film or a YouTube thing - what?

I'm feeling your pain LadyWallFlower; summer hasn't quite started yet and I already feel as if the krazies are coming out of the woodwork. Dodgy

Click on his name (which on my computer shows up in blue) at the heading of his post. It will take you to his personal page. On the far right upper side you'll see:
Add to friends
or
Add to ignore.


select ignore.
That "blocks" them and you can no longer see anything they type
(except for if another forum member quotes them.........then you cannot help but read their jibberish)

This. Thank you Witchsabrina.

Just deleted my Facebook and everything...I was probably about to lose most of my FB friends anyway, because I've been "coming out" a lot more recently. I told someone on my public FB page that I'm a freethinker. Gasp! It was such a relief! I'm just beginning to care less and less about what people think. Frankly, I was starting to get mad that I'm expected to keep my opinions to myself just because people won't agree with me. While every other Christian on my FB gets to shove their beliefs down everyone's throat and turn up their noses to "sinners" and, thanks to "Gods Not Dead," atheists ALL THE TIME on FB.

Also, a day after my little confession, my dad told me to watch Questioning Darwin, which I'm sure you've all talked about already. OH MY FUCKING GOD. Hobo

And then I have every other Christian saying "Oh yeah, I hate religion too." Because, you know, Christianity is a relationship. I should tell them that I tried to get into a relationship with Jesus, but he never called back. I'm pretty sure he gave me the wrong number. Bastard. Oh well, there's plenty of gods in the sea.

I think the worst part is knowing that people close to me don't take me seriously because I'm not a Christian.

nice! My favorite thing when conversating with believers is when they reference some drivel from answersingenesis delusion site....buahahahahahahahaha I pity them all....and what's facebook?????????????

Here's a link to the documentary. I really didn't know whether to laugh or cry. This documentary is seriously all over the place.

RE: I need to rant to other atheists.
Hello, Lady Wallflower, I know how you feel, but just keep in mind, you are the sane one. It sounds very extreme to say the religionists suffer from a form of mental illness, but this is the conclusion I have come to. And they are afflicted in varying degrees. Those in the evangelical and fundamentalist camps are wackier than those who manage to stay pretty much in touch with reality except for a vague notion of some supernatural force that started it all. I moved to a new state (NC, part of the bible belt) seven years ago and did not hide my atheism, but neither did I flaunt it. I found that by letting my beliefs emerge publicly in an organic manner, it has actually had the effect of emboldening others to acknowledge their own disbelief. Luckily we have our own community of atheists, humanists and freethinkers locally and in a statewide network, so that helps a lot. As far as my fundamentalist elderly mother, my sister and brother, I have superficial relationships with them and accept that that's better than no relationship.

We all deal with this shit. I am so sorry you and I live in a country that is so damn hypocritical and self-righteous.

I'd hate to be in a relationship with Jesus.

You'd have to be super careful of what cloths you wear, and any you might buy him as a gift. You can't go out for seafood.You can't take him out on Sunday or he'll slaughter people, but you can't cook for him on Sunday cause then he'll kill you. And he'd probably destroy any movie theater you took him to for practicing witchcraft.

And if the constant donations churches need are any indication, he's flat broke, so don't expect any gifts or anything.

All your dates would consist of sitting in a public place kissing his ass.

So true!

Just because YOU believe in fairies doesn't mean anybody else should.

Thanks for that, Howe, and welcome to the forum!
