Welcome to Dark Atheists

I started this group because I was looking for a similar one and same as GOD it does not exist here on A/N lol. If you are sick of feeling left out for being dark and moody or hardcore and brash-then guess what your my new friend. I want this group to be one big place to vent about how annoying society is. Basically anything that expresses yourself like, darkness, things that are creepy, fav rock bands, poetry, vampires, movies, TV shows-whatevs. Just share- if it's interesting.  And Welcome!

I agree, James, that our religious perspectives remain in layers. I've found introspection helpful when something like this bubbles to the surface. I'm keenly aware of human limits, particularly in interpreting reality through reason rather than out-of-control primitive brain responses. Thanks for your articulate and thoughtful comments.

Even our religious past and superstitious beliefs and perspectives remain in some of the layers. While I think it is important to recognize the errors in religious thinking, it is important to keep in mind when dealing with the religious that you were once religious too and not fall into the trap of thinking all atheists were born being highly logical, rational beings. This is something we much learn to be and value. But let us not forget our humanness, what makes us vulnerable, prone to error. There is no reason why we cannot value reason and personal sentiment as long as they are in a healthy relation with one another. It's okay to be dark, but not lost in the dark.

I just wanted to comment that this is an interesting group to have here on Atheist Nexus. I think many individuals who come to conclude that atheism is for them have come from a long, difficult path, filled with a variety of experiences and emotions that have become an integral part of one's consciousness and concept of self. Each of us probably realize that we have layers in our mind that have been build up, layers that will always be there. We need to only understand them and integrate them into a better understanding of life, of what being human is, and move forward to a more integrated way of life. It is mostly about acceptance and understanding and not indulgence, which most people mistakenly assume, when they see "brooding". Emotion is an objective part of the human experience, and to ignore that is to be less knowledgeable about people. However, it is not at the top of my value system. But at the same I cannot ignore that they exist, that they are a part of my existence, and that they sometimes like to bubble up from where they normally dwell  Where it is cold and dark, within the depths of the abyss. One cannot simply wish them away or pretend they don't exist.

Thanks, Idaho Spud.  Nice to see you here.

Powerful music, James.

Ruth, I like your cat that used to talk to itself, and the "Thank you for smoking" picture.  Funny stuff.
