Mandated voting a very bad idea.

 I have seen the subject of mandated voting on the web recently, It makes me shutter. I once was in that camp. I believed that as a U.S. citizen it was one's duty to vote. I have since changed my…Continue

Has atheism become part of your identity?

  I think we are all familiar with the I'm not a non-golfer argument. I can not identify with what I am not. I do not play golf, so a non-golfer is not part of my identity.  This does appear to be a…Continue

About Me:
I was indoctrinated as a Methodist as a child. I sought the truth as a Christian and to my surprise and dismay found that the bible was not true. As a Christian I was very well versed in the bible even among Christians. I am still fascinated by it now but for very different reasons. I study Christianity about 3 hours a day.I wish to help others deal with and understand their unbelief as it relates to a theist society which can be very challenging.

How I became a Fundamentalist extremist in my childhood, its affects, and how I got out.

Posted on January 27, 2018 at 8:30am 6 Comments

  Lately I have been describing myself as a former Young Earth Creationist, Fundamentalist, wacko. At first I thought that the addition of the word "wacko" would cause much backlash. I have not had one negative comment even in Christian forums. I think this is due to a number of reasons. First of all, I am calling myself this and not pointing fingers at anyone else. What is interesting about this is, I can describe beliefs others still have yet they probably think "yes I belive that but I'm…

Compelledunbeliever MIA?

I have not been as active lately here at my first home as an atheist. Rest assured I am not gone.

There are a couple of reasons for this. Primarily my 16 year old son has a rare bone disease and has had to have the first of two total knee replacements.

The second reason that the people here have given me new confidence. I regularly post on Facebook and other sights answering questions about atheism and Christianity. When I first started here I was afraid so I used…

My daughter learns one of life's greatest lessons at her second day of college.

Posted on August 24, 2017 at 7:00pm 5 Comments

 Yesterday my daughter came home from her second day of college. On day two her history class started on the Epic of Gilgamesh, of which I was very impressed to hear. Then my daughter mentioned "the Jesus guy". She described a typical religious person in an outside area preaching. This of course was no surprise.

  What did come as a shock is when she said she listened to his stories and immediately recognized the stories in the Epic of Gilgamesh that had been written 2000 years before…

The Nativity according to Matthew; why I'm an atheist

Posted on December 5, 2016 at 9:00pm 7 Comments

  It is often said that many are atheist because they read the Bible. This is my story.  I did not know there were atheist books, activists or anything of the sort. I was a christian with my Bible. I could not discuss doubts with other believers I had to study the Bible that was my only choice.

  This is one of my favorite passages that led to my disbelief. I did not know that Nazareth was not inhabited at all during Jesus's life time, that there was no census or that it couldn't have…

Good info re EDS. Glad you're in "remission". I'd never heard of the syndrome until last year (from my neighbor). I have joint problems, too, but it's from arthritis. Exercising helps.

I just read that you have Ehlers-Danros Syndrome. My neighbor lady (age 37) has it. She's not expected to live past another 10 years (or so she says). She is in constant pain, suffering from all sorts of ailments. I think she takes marijuana (illegally here in Indiana) to help alleviate her suffering. How do you deal with it?

I never thought of the Bible being "fascinating". Historical, perhaps. Welcome to A/N.
