    No Difference In My Life, Just More Free Time

    I have gone to church my whole life till recently. My mother took me to Baptist and Pentecostal churches, then I went on my own to Pentecostal, Methodist, Lutheran, and Episcopal churches. I realized that I always felt like an outsider even in church. I only went at the end...

    Today i was pondering the concept of

    consciousness and awareness. It is very strange to think that we are made up of a bunch of chemical molecules that form cells, which form our bodies. Within are brains are specialized cells we have named neurons, which function to regulate the rest of the cells of the body. They...

    I went to church all my life till recently.

    I was raised religious and conservative. The more I got exposed to different things, the less conservative I got. I realized that not everything church said was a sin was a sin. I realized maybe my religion wasn't the only right one, then my god wasn't the only right one. I...

    I'm Glad

    Growing up whenever I had a problem I told my dad. He would just tell me lets pray about it or that's just what God wants for you. Never did I get any advice from him nor consideration. He would always blame me the bad things happen because I wasn't a perfect angel. But I was the...

    It's Been A Blessing (pun Intended) But...

    I grew up in a strict religious household that belonged to a church that was heavy on the hell and brimstone sermons. Growing up, I became increasingly worried about those that I knew, friends and family alike, ending up being tormented forever because they weren't the same...

    The universe is just a wonderful place.

    I love my family - wife of almost 20 years and three great kids. I am grateful for a great job and a great boss. I am thankful for the outstanding schools in my town.

    I have a loving family,

    a wonderful boyfriend, great friends, and everything I could want or need materially; and God had nothing to do with it.

    Happy, Content, Fulfilled, And More.

    I've been atheist for well over half my life. I used to be a bible (lowercase intended) thumping street preacher. It was a former Methodist minister who asked me if I read the so-called "good book" not just the parts I liked but the whole thing? I confessed I hadn't and that...

    Freedom Of Irreligion

    Atheism is intellectual freedom. For me, it is an unchained, unfettered, curious, unprejudiced, fearless way of thinking. There is nothing to hold me back, no one to tell me how to think, no fear of judgment, no reprisal, no ancient and insipid rules to break. My thoughts are...
