No no no nothing of that sort. Ive been a nonbeliever for around years but really had to do some searching since i was a little lost and ive always been a woman of science so when i finally sat down with myself the only key to happiness for me was in my atheism. shackled to and force fed catholicism for 18 years i hadnt really lived a day till i was godless. so nice to meet you!
Yeah I think that the most crazy thing that I have heard is that "your so nice how could you possible be an atheist?" and I'm like are you crazy? And I do know that sometimes there are a lot of guys that are still stuck in child mode I guess, and I don't know about dating older guys just as of yet.
It was a few posts ago but I do think that the do need way more shows like the Atheist Experience, that can be shown in all states too.
And for me anyway, maybe its because I'm young, but the guys are just kind of one-sided meaning that they are predictable I guess, and being an atheist is kind of hard when it comes to dating since there are more theists then non-theists out there. It seems like when a guy finds out that I'm an atheist its like that end of everything which can suck at times.
I have yet to get someone do the whole Pascal's Wager yet, but I do plan on bringing up Zeus when it does inevitably happen that is. When it comes down to my personality I have no idea why I am so shy because it seems as if everyone in my family are more or less extroverts and very outgoing on both sides of my family, while I am very reserved and to myself almost all of the time. That does make me wonder why often when we have family gatherings and I try to distance myself from it at times. So when it comes to that I have no idea where it comes from, I guess its just me.
Yeah I think that we all have had the "why are you mad at God?" question before, I know I have a couple of times. And your right my name is Jewish, I was named after my great-grandma who lived in Isreal. It's not that I'm shy around other atheists or to meet them, but I'm kind of shy be default, which makes it kind of hard to meet new people sometimes.
Hi Joseph, to give you my understanding on what you said about the terms atheists and agnostics is that agnostics mainly go on knowledge. Meaning that no one can know for sure if god(s) actually exist. For my understanding atheists have disbelief in a god(s) and many also don't believe in the supernatural as well. I guess I could understand how they can sometimes overlap. That's just my understanding it anyway.
Well, thank you. It took me way too long to do the pg so it'll stay for a while.
Upon first reading this it took me a second to realize you were referring to the pic. I say that because I am a granny... I had one of those slow moments us grannies have at times. And I hadn't mentioned that I was a granny so I was freaking out. Also now I'm just rambling... Anyway, thx, I'm still learning my way around but really really dig it here.
I've noticed this as well, although I have met devoutly religious people with Aspergers as well. I do think that the ability to look at things objectively definitely helps those with it to look at religion and see something 'wrong' easier than neurotypicals who enjoy living in comfortable delusions.
Not saying that I'm an expert, by any means. But I'd like to think that I at least understand the basics well enough to know what it is talking about. I actually did have evolution taught to me a bit in high school freshman biology. but it was a mere glimpse, prefaced by the teacher making a 10 minute disclaimer about it haha.
Yeah you'd be surprised how they do it lol. I'm not a Bio major there for sure, but the intro class i took, they just didn't mention it at all. Basically a slight extension of what I learned in high school biology. And I agree with both of your last statements lol.
Haha I wish they were. They more or less just ignore evolution in general, but at the same time they don't teach creationism. it was started by the Methodists some time in the late 1800s or so and yes they are pretty much the most laid back, liberal Christians out there lol. They even have a few congregations that have homosexual ministers. The number is extremely low, like less than 1%, but it's something nonetheless. Basically the reason why I'm going is because they gave me the most money out of the schools I was applying to after taking a year off.
