hi from the new guy
Hello everyone!

Let me tell all you wonderful people a little about my self. I was raised a good christian boy and soured on the whole thing 2 years ago. I like to say that I've lost my faith and good riddance to it!.

i was watching the bible episode of Penn and Tellar's Bullshit. it was like taking a hammer to a pane of glass, i then spent 8 months tortured by questions and doubts, finding my self offended by things i previously supported, and getting no satisfactory answers.

i now embrace atheism, and am far happier than ever before! i also find great pleasure in mocking religion in such a way that points out the folly of blind faith, and the flaws in the bible. I am on a personal mission to encourage people think about their beliefs, and question what all leaders, religious or otherwise, have to say.

i am so glad a place like this exists where a can ask questions and get answers with out religious superstition colouring. Glad to be here

Welcome, Relic. Have you seen Bill Maher's Religulous? You'd probably like it.
I, too, grew up on the teachings of Xianity, although I believed it at the time, I never once felt the overwhelming spirituality that seems to overtake other people's lives. Eventually, I concluded that I am atheist and have never thought twice about it. It is an empowering feeling to know that your reality isn't clouded by millennia-old superstitious nonsense. Smartass

Welcome to the forum.

Seeing as your an atheist I can freely tell you that the blood orgies are tomorrow and if you get peckish then please feel free to put a newborn infant on the BBQ. Thumbsup

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

-Bemore.

I've taken the liberty to archive this claim in the Words I Want to Remember thread.


You might want to review it for accuracy in a few weeks. Maybe days... maybe hours.

Depending on who you run into. Or who runs into you.
