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.

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

Posted on December 5, 2016 at 9:00pm 8 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…

The Historicality of Jesus Christ. Who cares?

Posted on August 25, 2016 at 9:49pm 12 Comments

There is some debate among scholars on the historicality of Jesus Christ. Was the story given in the New Testament about Jesus based on a real historical figure? There is a movement that now poses it as a serious question but they are mostly considered fringe radicals. Most Christian scholars scoff at the question which is no surprise due to their Christian beliefs. Honestly, I believe that the “radicals” offer much compelling evidence for the case of a fictional Jesus though I…

Why Islam should be outlawed (until it's the next religions turn)

Posted on August 11, 2016 at 7:57pm 9 Comments

  Bare with me this is not hate speech.  

Let's say the Aztec religion becomes very prolific in the U.S.   There's temples through out the country. Our Constitution protects the freedom of religion. Great especially if it also protects freedom from religion. One day these Aztec theist decide to sacrifice a random citizen at each temple every day to ensure the sun rises. Would their freedom of religion then be protected. Of course not. It would be deemed unconstitutional on the basis…

Delightful early childhood memories of Church

Posted on July 30, 2016 at 3:00pm 7 Comments

 Today for some random reason I began to reflect on early childhood memories of the protestant church. My mind wandered to Communion. I realized that there are many of those who are unaware of how the ceremony of Communion in the early 70’and before was conducted. They may be shocked and well, simply grossed out it. Its description could provide a good lesson in Christianity and huge laugh. Christianity has changed enormously since its beginning. It continues to constantly change even to…

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?
