"Thanks for sharing, runRobrun. It's amazing how the little things like being asked to give a talk and saying no! is so liberating and helps free our minds a bit more to look more closely at everything. Looks like you've had an amazing…"

runRobrun replied to Carrie's discussion What turned the corner for you on theism? in the group Totally Atheist

Peter Boling replied to Carrie's discussion What turned the corner for you on theism? in the group Totally Atheist

"When I realized -- or, finally admitted to myself -- that Mormonism isn't true, all of religion fell apart for me. And it's really hard for me to understand when people finally leave the LDS church and then go join some other church. What…"

Carrie replied to Carrie's discussion 36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction in the group Totally Atheist
"Ah, this is a good, concise description. In effect, if he exists, he is either incompetent or sadistic. I think hemorrhoids are the proof. What kind of god can't get all the veins to stay inside the body?"

Tom replied to Carrie's discussion What turned the corner for you on theism? in the group Totally Atheist
"The beginning for me was when I figured out the LDS church was crap, but I still tried to hold on to some belief in God. As I read more and tried to gain the answers I read some books that began me thinking that there was no God. The more I thought…"

"I just read an article on her in The New Humanist magazine (UK May/June issue). I didn't even realize she's married to evolutionary psychologist and linguist Steven Pinker. I'll have to pick this one up."

Relationship Status (single, partner, etc):

My Story:
The beginning of 2009 I had a moment of awakening, when I realized that people believed what they wanted to believe, and that everything I had believed was probably wrong. I felt like I woke up on another planet! What an adventure it's been since then.
Interests and Hobbies:
It would be more fruitful to write what I don't like: unsubstantiated claims. I probably am not much in for skateboarding these days, either. Everything else is like, OMG, where do I start? I did woodworking in April (built myself a workbench), cob in November (monolithic adobe; built a garden entrance wall), and now I'm doing drawing.
Favorite Books:
Atlas Shrugged, The Virtue of Selfishness, Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand, The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution, Innumeracy, The Blank Slate, Why Choose This Book: How We Make Decisions
Favorite Movies:
12 Angry Men
