Welcome to Home of Apostates!

Everyone has the right to abandon his/her religion without being persecuted or discriminated. We fight against the persecution of apostates. We stand up against religious discrimination and intolerance. It is a long way ahead but there will be a day that apostates will be able to live safely all around the world in peace and harmony with other people.

Religion is brain poison, and has a twofold effect on the believer's brain:First, the believer becomes accustomed to accepting logical fallacies as correct, fallacies that are necessary to justify…Continue

Any Mormon Apostates Out There?

I may be chatting with some Mormon teens this week. (This opportunity came to me, not me to it.) What made sense to you when you were still in the church? Any seeds I should plant?

People who believe in god(s)/religion(s) seem to say that "God is most important" in their lives (then family, then work). But god doesn't exist. I have a concern that because the…Continue

It seems I have clarification to make; I am grateful to Laura for pointing out this old exaggerated story with new wings.
In 2006, Bill Nye "The Science Guy" gave a speech in Waco, TX in which he "recited a Bible verse, Genesis 1:16, “God made two great lights - the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars," then Nye pointed out that the moon, actually, was a reflector.”
"in a crowd of 600 people, a few walked out, and were obviously upset, but most were receptive.”
“For Skeptics, it's not just an example of this kind of conditioning that allows people to close themselves off from any contrary evidence to their views, no matter how obvious and common sensical, but how, in the Internet age, stories take on a life of their own and are more likely to catch fire because they are cast in their most sensationalistic light."
~ Dylan Otto Krider

To my readers, I will do a better job of checking background and let the old stories die.

It's pretty clear to me, Joan, that it is more important to these people to be right with their deity than it is to be intelligent and/or informed.  Of course, their church leaders LIKE them this way, because it's all the easier to lead them around by the nose and swallow any insane BS they tell them.

Loren, this is just simply outrageous! Deliberate ignorance and not even ashamed of themselves. What is the matter with their religious leaders? Are they some hick who couldn't make it in the real adult world and so took up religion to food on his table and a roof over his head. Well, he had better grow up because the world doesn't need eternal children. Thanks Loren, I am reposting

Thanks, Loren.  If ID is true, and God is perfect and created us in his image, why do I have a prostate gland that wraps around my urethra and, nearing 70, I have EPS, such that while the gland swells it cuts off my flow.  I go the men's room all day at, about, 45-minute intervals.  What is intelligent about THAT?!  There is no god but Man.

Comment by Loren Miller on December 14, 2012 at 6:24

There are places in the US where that is already happening, Joan.  Witness the reception Bill Nye got in Waco, Texas when he asserted that the moon is not a light source, but reflects light energy from the sun.  There's also the matter of ID / creationism being approved for teaching in Tennessee and Louisiana.

These idiots are convinced that running their country on the bible is the right thing to do, and given enough traction, they will do just that ... and therewith turn the US into another Saudi Arabia.

I guess those ideas could spread to this country. If the beauty and intelligence of the Golden Age of Islam could be so terribly annihilated, it could happen any where.
Surely there were protesters when the changes occurred, but religious faith was so strong, it crushed any resistance.

As someone famous once said, I am a protestant, too, in the sense that I protest.

James, I, personally am not a recovering catholic, but I do descend  from a mixture of Puritan stock from 1632, Roman Catholic who emigrated about 1900, a Free Methodist, and a Presbyterian. Though my parents were not active church goers, they still held on to the old beliefs about women and children, and the responsibility of man to have control over them. Obedience was a high value, as was very hard work. The net result was the usual dysfunction in families who came through the Great Depression and WW II moving out of the old traditions but not yet ready to take on such heresies as a woman capable of thinking for her own benefit, and that women and children who would not submit to patriarchy were not worth their salt.

Brian, your generalization about American women has at least one exception that I know of: my wife.  She has remained as devoted and interested in me while I have been unemployed as I was when I made high-five-figures a year, perhaps more so.  Indeed, I could name several other women I have known whose attitudes are remarkably similar.  If the women you are hanging with are only interested in your wallet, You're Hanging With The WRONG WOMEN!!!
