I come here to get sound advice...I separated from my partner of six years several months ago. She moved out a week ago. We are still friends and still communicate with one another. I work at a boarding school where the people here are so close that its like a home away from home or a second family. I have the awful task of breaking this news to my students in about a week.

So as I sit here with tears streaming down my face I am tempted to pray...a friend hits me up on facebook and says I need to "return to church to seek god because he is our help".

Just thought I would share how interesting it is to make decisions without god. I was raised to believe that you sought god's advice for every detail of your life. For example, you did not buy a toothbrush unless you had heard from god as to what color it should be. Now that major decisions are being made in my life, it's scary. It's scary because I don't consult any god. I do what seems best for me with the occasional piece of advice from friends. It is just as liberating as it is scary.… Continue

As a "baby atheist"..I am often tempted to "pray" when bad things happen...where do atheists go to get comfort when needed??? I know prayer doesn't work, but what does?
