This is embarrassing. In July, I wrote a post called "My Mum Threw Away my Atheist Book!" because I genuinely believed that she had. However, I now realise that she didn't, because she actually found the book and showed it to me! So sorry mum. Let's talk about what happened today. So what actually happened … Continue reading Sorry Mum – You Didn’t Throw Away My Atheist Book
Before reading, please check this post here as it turns out she didn't throw my book away at all, however for about over a year I thought that she had. I have left this post up as a snapshot into what kinds of things you go through when you keep your atheism a secret and … Continue reading My Mum Threw Away my Atheist Book!
Lucian saw a dark red sky and found that he couldn’t move. His initial thought was not of panic or worry, but confusion. He lied in the ground, only his face was exposed to the elements, while the rest of his body was stuck underground. This was not heaven. The red sky, and smell of … Continue reading The Paradise Given to Lucian of Meres – Chapter 2 – Chains
On the day before my 18th birthday, I realised something that in combination with all of my other doubts pushed me over the edge and made me an atheist. The being I claimed to love more than anything else in the world, the being who I worshipped, the being who I lived for and the … Continue reading “A Relationship with God”
Generally, and especially in recent times, I have been more indifferent in my opinions towards Christianity, as long as you're not harming anyone, it's fine. However recently I've been made to feel angry by how some Christians deal with the issue of hell. 'God does not send you to hell, an eternal endless torment of … Continue reading 1 Ticket to Hell Please
Yesterday I reviewed Richard Dawkins' "Outgrowing God" however there was a major discussion topic that I missed out that I would like to talk about here. That is the issue itself of selling a book like this to children. I don't think it should be done. But obviously that applies to religious books as well. … Continue reading On Selling Atheist Books To Children
Outgrowing God fills in a much needed gap in atheist literature. Though there are many books for adults there isn't necessarily a popular or famous one intended to be more accessible for a young audience. This book seems to solve these problems, but how well? When you think of marketing books towards a younger audience … Continue reading Outgrowing God By Richard Dawkins – Book Review
The Genesis account of the creation of the universe is certainly interesting and fascinating. But now that we have such an amazing understanding of how the universe began, we can actually analyse Genesis to see how much it complies with science. So do the accounts match? And if so, how much? And if they don't … Continue reading Facts In Genesis: Is The Creation Account In Christianity Correct?
Before we begin, here is the initial duck duck go image results for when you search "christmas" I feel like the difference between saying "Happy Christmas" and "Happy Holidays" is besides the point to the war on Christmas. Don't get me wrong, it makes perfect sense to say "Happy Holidays" as there are many festivals … Continue reading The War On Christmas Seems Irrelevant
Its interesting the ways that religion's routes can have long lasting consequences over you. I count myself lucky that my deconversion was so simple, with my faith in all things Christian slowly diminishing in every possible way over time. Starting with simple observations such as prayer working at the same rate as chance, and things … Continue reading Sexual Repression In Christianity
Why give this the title of "supernatural" when it's something that I don't believe in? Well essentially, at the time of being Christian, I thought it might have been. Though later I would come to dismiss my previous experiences and encounters with the supernatural, in rather easy ways, this one sort of just got forgotten … Continue reading My Only Encounter With The Supernatural
When I tell people I used to be a Christian there is a temptation to assume that it was caused by a traumatic or horrible event that turned them away from God, but this is far from the truth for most people. So I thought I'd share my story of what it was like. But … Continue reading What Losing My Faith Was Like
I always said to myself that if someone honestly asks me about my religion I will genuinely tell them. But that has happened, and it's not exactly happened that way, in fact it's only happened that way once, when I mentioned a thing commonly said by atheists that prompted my friend to ask the question. … Continue reading Why I Haven’t Come Out As Atheist To My Family
It's been a while since I made a blog post, so I thought I'd make a simple post about what I'm thinking about right now. The issue is, that you can always make time for things that you like, unfortunately blogging doesn't fall into one of these things. Not that I don't like blogging, I … Continue reading I Wear Christian T-Shirts|World of A Neutral God| New Testament Worse than Old|Afterlife|Deathbed Conversions
Instead of launching into writing and releasing so many blog posts first I maybe should have explained my reasoning. After all, what's the big deal? Why not let people believe what they believe and leave them alone? Why spend so much time talking about something you don't believe to exist? Well let's start. The first … Continue reading Why Talk About Atheism So Much?
Remember when I made my post, blogging is supposed to be fun? Well this is written directly after that with literally one minute in-between! The reason for splitting the posts up like this, is that I didn't want to take away from the previous message and loose people in what I was trying to say. … Continue reading I Still Fail To Follow My Own Advice
I am not a member of the church of jesus christ latter-day saints and am just a non-believer who took it upon himself to read it and pray about it as I did so. I read this book over the course of one week, and made notes on what I thought as I went. This … Continue reading Book of Mormon Review – Nephi 1
I am not a Christian, but the sad thing is I feel like all Christians will be able to empathise with what I'm saying, because this is also what many Christians I knew felt like when I was still Christian. What are the benefits of Christianity? If you asked me back when I was a … Continue reading On Having A Relationship With Jesus
Recently I've been discussing Christianity, religion, and Mormonism with a member of the church of jesus christ latter-day saints, and we made a deal, if I read the book of mormon he would read the CES letter. So here I am! For those who don't know, the book of Mormon is allegedly a book translated … Continue reading Book Of Mormon Review  – Testimonies & Explanation
Nearly all sects of Christianity claim that there will be a doomsday, or judgement day, as is described in revelations. People use bible maths to calculate when this day will be, but so far none of these calculations have proved to be correct. I think this event would be impossible to predict, based on the … Continue reading What Is The Endgame For Christianity?
The controversy of Monty Python's The Life of Brian has mostly passed, and that's because the message of their film was not intended to be controversial. As John Cleese and Michael Palin say in their debate about the nature of the film, it is by no means intended to debunk Christ. It is far too … Continue reading Thoughts On Monty Python’s Infamous, Insensitive Crucifixion Scene
How long is infinity? Let's take a massive huge number, let's say a google, that is a number starting with a one, and then a following 100 zero's. This is a number that towers over the length of time that the total number of humans on this planet ever has lived combined in years, and … Continue reading You’ve Thought About Eternity for 25 Minutes, and Think You’ve Reached Some Meaningful Conclusions?
Obviously I released a post titled "God is not real" and there was a heck of a lot of discussion! You can find my initial argument here. However to summarise it, I don't want any God to exist, because as a minimum, any religion being correct would result in 72% of the population having eternal … Continue reading Why I hope Yahweh is Not Real – Comments, Thoughts, and Responses
