Howdy folks, I'm Russ and I just don't believe in God.  Period.  No big explanation forthcoming although I'm certainly capable of boring you all to death with yet another variation of Bertrand…Continue

Russell Christian replied to Austin Hunt's discussion What age did you become an atheist/agnostic and why?
"You know I don't really know when I actually became an atheist.  I know that I struggled against it for some time.  I kept  interpreting and rationalizing scripture in order to make it fit with a reasoned and rational world…"

Russell Christian replied to Eve Knows's discussion Eve and the Tree of Knowledge... Why are people not on her side?
"Lots of interesting takes on the whole Garden of Eden myth.  I've always taken it as a metaphorical fable that portrayed the beginning of morality in the mind of human kind.  Until Adam and Eve ate of the fruit of the tree they had no…"

Russell Christian replied to annet's discussion What can an atheist possibly celebrate?
"Yes!  Everyday is a celebration, and it should be.  The odds of any of us being here at all are so remote, so infinitesimally small as to make winning the lottery seem commonplace by comparison.  We should revel in the simple fact of…"

Russell Christian replied to Prefer Not to Say's discussion A question to ex-believers
"This is a great question and, like the others have said, there really is no good answer yet.  Maybe there never will be one.  This could be the last of the gaps for god to fill. I know that it can be hard to accept a universe with infinite…"

Russell Christian replied to scott martins's discussion IS EVERYBODY 100% POSITIVE THERE IS NO GOD?
"I am 100% certain that every god that is currently worshipped on the face of the earth does not exist.  100% certain, not a shadow or sliver of any kind of doubt what so ever.  That said, I am not 100% certain that some kind of god does…"

Russell Christian replied to Daniel J Plaat's discussion What would you want to see in an atheist chuch?
"If I were to design something like that I'd have a warm and inviting lobby with free handouts explaining in the most general way what atheists are about and how we differ from agnostics or deists.  The lobby might also double as a reading…"

Russell Christian replied to Atheist Insurgency's discussion What is "Sacred?"
"I think it's important for Atheists to discuss and debate not only the bible but any of these so called "sacred texts" if for no other reason to keep ourselves sharp and fresh intellectually with regard to what others believe and what…"

Russell Christian replied to Andrew Stewart's discussion The Holy Books: Read 'Em and Rate 'Em! My List of Good Reads
"Actually, I believe that the Roman version was Jupiter or Jove and that Zeus was Greek.   Nitpicking aside, I like the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Norse Eddas. What I find most interesting about Gilgamesh and the earlier Summerian texts that…"

Russell Christian replied to Jezzy's discussion Your Own Sacred Texts
"First off, I just love Dawkins.  My favorite two are "The God Delusion" and  "The Greatest Show On Earth" (evolution).  He really is a gifted writer.  If I could make one suggestion though, listen to a couple…"
