Just thought I'd write a short ex-C testimony to those who may be interested. I was a christian for several years, not sure exactly why it happened. I guess it was largely wishful thinking, and having indoctrination at childhood. Over time more and more doubts crept in as I realised my beliefs were not based on reality. A year ago I started to deconvert and now am no longer a christian. I eventually realised that my preivously christian beliefs were without justification, any rational justification, and were not supported by good evidence. I think the theists here cling onto their beliefs for emotional factors and because they have so much invested in them. They may fear the punishment of the god monster, they may believe in a loving Jesus cuddling lambs. But without reason and without good evidence, even intelligent people can belief weird and delusional things. Viva reason!!!

Actually, for me it's just a pastime, when I am bored and have to force a break from coding. Yes, I do enjoy watching you make fools of yourselves, it's quite entertaining, and reminds me of how much I have accomplished in life, thanks to not being stupid and ignorant like you.
You must not have accomplished much if that is your idea of relaxing. Sounds more like a desperation to justify your own "foolishness" and confusion.

Life is like a carnival. You can enjoy the sights and sounds as a visitor, or you can get real dour from being one of the workers sitting in a trailer crunching numbers or cleaning up monkey poo while the show goes on.

Get a little more poetic about life. More fun.:-)

I'd wager that to you relaxing is watching a bunch of grown men beating the crap out of each other. Now, if you could please refrain from using non-English when responding to me, it would make it so much easier to help you see how foolish you are.

<quoted text>Then why is it in the bible? The book that supposedly contains the WORD OF GOD. It's there girl, if you're confused or not sure, look it up and read it for yourself. Don't take my word for it or REDNUTS word. read it and make you own determination.
I don't want to read it because I don't believe the parts I have read. I believe you!!!

But Jesus was nice, I can't get that out of my head, how can 'his' book be like that? He didn't even write the bible, how can they say it's the word of God??

You would lose that wager. I am not a beer sucking TV and sports watcher. Rather a constructive and sensual guy, even after all of these years walking through monkey poo and listening to the screeching.

You must surely be wrong about lots of other things. Do it once and you will do it twice.

Lame attempt at an insult again, if you can't troll correctly, then don't troll.

So, in other words, you're a sexual pervert. I don't waste my time on that either, the brain is more important, I prefer to use that.

Oh goody, another defeatist who think they can make up the rules as you go. Based only on what you stated here, it doesn't matter if the person who is christian rapes and kills children, your god will still favor them over an atheist who never does anything wrong in their lives. That's a horrible basis for morality, though it explains all the christians in prison.
How can these people have such a twisted view? It's really beyond me, how people can be so evil! Don't say it's because they believe in God, because I do, the whole of blumin India does, but never really are you going to find hindus, sikhs, buddhists, jains....telling you that if you not one of us you will go to hell! Why are the 'western' religions like that, though? Have you ever thought that this may be a problem of the west?
