Know Thy Self

Last Thanksgiving, in response to something my mother said, I replied "Ma, I don't believe any o' that god stuff." Her response was, "Yes you do, you're Catholic!" Well I've been an atheist for the better part of a decade. I continue to marvel at how people believe the impossibilities tought in religions as actual facts. Ironically, my journey toward atheism began when my brother introduced me to the teachings of a Brooklyn, NY cult leader of an Islamic sect. This guy, who is now incarcerated for life, wrote some interesting books breaking down the scriptures of the bible. His skepticism, I imagine, inspired him to publish his interpretations of the bible including refuting the validity and popular meanings of certain holidays such as Christmas and Easter. These books opened my eyes. Instead of being inspired to be one of his followers, they caused me to begin questioning what I believed. I was on the slippery slope and promptly descended. Or did I ascend? I would argue for the latter.

Hello Billy. Welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers who recognise that gods and religions are deceptions that are used to control vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

I'm an atheist but when someone talks about his/her relationship with God, I listen. I respond based on that person's belief. For example if someone tells me that God has blessed them, I say that I'm happy for them. So recently someone says to me, "You should come to my church." I replied that I'm an atheist. She appeared on the verge of tears. "Oh, I'm sorry", she said. Who knows what that meant but at least she didn't try to talk me out of my stance. She's still very nice to me and the same can be said about me to her. I love New York!
