"So far, the hardest thing was stopping the auto-pray function they installed in my brain when waking up everyday. It was infuriating to wake up a decade after leaving the church, a convicted atheist, and still start in on my day with the "dear…"
"Hm. Thought provoking question. I grew up in a conservative home with some libertarian as well as "hippy" - conservative parents. I guess the commune idea of the United Order in Mormonism fosters some pretty socialist ideologies when seen…"
"lol. That was a complete waste of their time. I really don't like it when people try to read my mind, or trivialize a difficult struggle that I had to go through unraveling the mind-fuck cog-dis that is mormon brainwashing. Can I just say that…"
"OK, so naturalists aren't ONLY about running around naked in the woods, are they? Maybe we should give some recognition to the native traditions of mystical animism? Jane Goodall and her amazing work is a good example. I myself love the story…"
"Prompted? By the "spirit" of Atheism ;-) I like that. I wouldn't call militant atheism as revenge per se, but more of an amends, a righting of wrongs. I used to lie to people about the way the world was. I tried very hard to convince…"
"I tried Bud light lime and almost vomited. I like those clamato mixed ones, though, like the paisas drink. Takes you to a Baja Beach in four swigs flat.
Hard Ciders can be very good, but I haven't had a good one this side of the Atlantic…"
"Well, it really isn't fair for any beer to be classified as a "beginner" beer. Each beer brewed has it's place on the palate of life's experiences. If anything, a beginner beer is the one you drink first because you want to…"
"This site is hurtful to Mormons? Mormonism is hurtful to Mormons. This is a place where people come to be healed. Welcome, proud mormon. May you return often. Perhaps eventually, you will open up to us and let us heal some of your own wounds."
"Your fears and emotions have never been validated by your father, so why should you expect him to care about your feelings now? He holds this fear over your head in order to control your behavior and calls it "parenting", "loving…"
"Disbelief explains itself. It is belief that requires explaining. If I don't believe in something, what is there to explain?
It's like trying to explain nothingness, or the vastness of space, or even what it must feel like to…"
"The only true Americans are Atheist these days. All the pious religious people have aligned themselves with the very ideologies that America was founded to eradicate. Down with religious tyranny! Down with "God"! And up with individualism…"
"How people you love choose to react is on them, don't make yourself responsible for other people's feelings. Not hurting people means first of all not hurting yourself by continuing to lie to anyone about your belief or disbelief. If you…"
Outdoor Recreation and exercise, literature, new ideas, environmental responsibility. Home repair and residential construction, horticulture, wilderness exploration, especially back-country split-boarding.
