The test of a false god; Why I am an atheist.


The test of a false god; Why I am an atheist.

I was born into Christianity and indoctrinated while growing up. My extended family was extremely religious as well, we even had a few preachers. I grew up in the First United Methodist church, my sect was particularly literalist, they believe that all scripture was inspired by god. They believe that Satan was actively doing harm in our world and we were involved in spiritual battles constantly.

I wanted to become a… Continue

John Allen Chau, A Human Being

  So I feel a feel a bit akward now. I first came to this site as a scared just out of the closet atheist. I grew up here and have now come out in the open with my actual name and even now show my face(beware.)

 This site has been everthing to me. I would not be doing what I am if it was not for you good folks. That is no crap. Now I have a Youtube channel that i would no have if it was not for you. I do not make any money on it at all. It is simply a different way to reach people,…

Hypnagogic Hallucinations and the Argument from personal experience.

I hallucinate every day. This is a more interesting hallucination I had that reoccured. This is the reason that I do not buy into the argument from personal experience.

Jehovahs Witness Church ignores my friend at his funeral. How would you have responded?

 Perhaps my friend did want to be ignored at his funeral and I am simply being selfish and not honoring his wishes. If he choose not to have much mention at all but by name at his funeral then that brainwashing pisses me off. Did I just make it about me and my loss? Was I insensitive to him? Any way you look at it the loss of my friend bothered me, the way his church handled it angered me. Was I the one out of line? How would you have reacted?…

I call out a Preacher on his lies!

  Howdy! I had an exchange with Preacher Matt Powell and asked him to back up his claims about conversations he claims to have had with atheist. He promply tried to cover up his lies. This is my new video about the exchange. Was I too harsh on him? How would you have handled it?…

Just made my first atheist video for YouTube! THANKS TO YOU!

   When I first came out as an atheist I came to A/N and met a great community. I used the moniker compelledunbeliever because I was afraid to let anyone know that I was an atheist. After interacting with this community I became more confident and began to mention that I was an atheist in my community. Then I began a atheist website to encourage atheist to come out in my community, I began to be more vocal on the web, responding to media etc, using my own name.

      I would like to…

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

  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.

 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

  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?

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)

  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

 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…
