    Never Again...

    for me to discuss, and at the same time it's really simple. I used to believe in God and I don't anymore. Like some people, painful life experiences have made me question all this religious stuff. My dad left us when I was 4 years old, my main father figure passed away from...

    Epicurean Paradox

    If God is willing to prevent evil, but is not able to Then He is not omnipotent. If He is able, but not willing Then He is malevolent. If He is both able and willing Then whence cometh evil? If He is neither able nor willing Then why call Him God?

    We Are.

    Man—using his brain—invented all the Gods, doing so because many of our species cannot accept or control their personal egos, feeling compelled to conjure up one or a multiplicity of characters who can act without hindrance or guilt upon whims and desires. All Gods are thus...

    There Just Cant Be A God

    As a child my mother, who was very religous, dragged me to church at least 2-3 times a week. I didn't care either way, except for the hassel of getting up early on Sundays, I had nothing better to do anyway. Until I reached my teen years when it became annoying. All that being...

    And That's Not a Choice

    It must be very nice to believe in God, and I wish I could.  But I just can't anymore.  No god could be so cruel.  And, anyway, it defies all logic. The good news is I don't need a deity or any religion to be an ethical person.
