Normal Threads is a catagory?
Hi all.
I so wanted to say "God's crazy Uncle!" Big Grin referred me but this site, but, it required a legit username or none at all.

Me, whom am I? Man, I have despised ALL THINGS church-y since I was four, or even three years old. The Church of Christ = Black & White and only acapella music = HARD CORE stuff. 14 years of Sun, Sunday pm and Wednesdays, omg, this was tough. To top this brutal regime, let's toss in some summer stealing "VBS" also. Oh, I so longed for emancipation.

God never acknowledged any of my sincere efforts for making our relationship right. I wouldn't claim the sickening rationalizations of how "our" God was sooo good over here for curing some evil chit, but then allows a precious 5 year old to be brutally, sexually abused for over a week, or was it two?, only to be rescued by this loving vaporous God by having her perish in the comfort a sealed box as being buried alive. Nice n fuzzy love.

No praise is deserved for a God that saves one from one tormentor but not another to suffer quite incredibly. Ineffective, and simply 100% non responsive, yep, just may as well be nonexistent or dead.

Evolution still presents me some issues. Some creations are pushing my tolerance for buying the simple it's "evolving" into the better design. So agnostic is probably the best fit for me today? but my goal is to leave ALL options open; as the hardest thing to open is a closed mind.
Did Jesus say that too?

Welcome.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Welcome to the forums.

I get to decide what my life looks like, not the other way around.

There are so few of them there is talk of merging them into a single thread.

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

Welcome aboard! Smile

Good for you for telling God what a shit face he is.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.
