Wait.

That thread?

Its nice to mix with other people who are in control of their own mind, or at least are aware of their fallibility.
Came here to investigate this surge of creationism a friend of mine was getting bashed into his head at church.

I stay for the unpredictable melting pot of EGO's, and chippy rants are entertaining, a talk show podcast with Chippy and double Taq, would be a blast, if their not ripping the shit out of each other the theist callers would get roasted hard.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

How deep did you go and how fast did you come up without air? ... We got decompression formulas and shit that might just save your sorry ass from the bends. Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Why are you here ?
Too much bitching and pointing out that similar posts existed before a new member joins...geez Louise, get a grip. Dodgy

Digging up old threads gets people griped at for necro-posting. Can't win for losing with some of this crew.

And, no, that's not why I am here.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Thanks Anjele, and yeah, take that Chas Tongue

I didnt mean take the wind out of anybodys sails, and I figured that there may be other Noobs (like me) in here that didnt dig that deep to find a dead post.

I find it interesting, why people come and stay in this type of forum. So far I've had a blast and would love to meet a whole bunch of this crowd. Tho, there are some that I would'nt care to meet.

Seems that its going along just fine with this thread, I say enjoy it and have some damn fun. Angry

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

RE: Why are you here ?
My friend who is an atheist referred me to this site, and I'm glad he did, seems I've finally found an outlet.

Some of you who come from those extremely religious conservative families may know exactly what I mean when I talk about finding an outlet.

This site is especially helpful for closet atheists or people who feel they don't have anybody to talk to or anybody that understands them.

When I stopped believing in god; when I didn't identify myself as a believer anymore, my whole family ostracized me. I felt like I had nobody to talk to and I felt like something was wrong with me. My whole life, I'd been around religious people, and I'd been strictly told from as early as I can remember, that people who were not religious were an anomaly, something was wrong with them and they just didn't want to follow any rules.

Everyone around me would just look at me weirdly and try to proselytize, I felt like just giving in so I could not feel this anxiety anymore. I had no one to talk to, no one to tell me they thought differently. I felt alone.

I guess I just needed somebody to talk to, and to hear different points of views. I thank my friends at school for helping me through this, and encouraging me to think outside the box. I thank them for questioning my faith until I was red in the face, for making me stop to think and say, "That's a good question." And for destroying my religious objective morality beliefs when I dared to question how an atheist could be moral.

I came here because I needed to know I was not alone. I came here because I wanted to hear what people really wanted to say without anything holding them back. People who say whatever is on their mind and whatever is true, without fear of a religious scolding.

I thank this community for supplying this comfort not only to me, but for anyone else who feels this way.

Everyday is judgement day. Use your judgement, use reason.

They can't. You know too much!

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.
