I love vice.com .
I have a fondness for people like this that seek an alternate reality for a while. A certain innocence and maturity, and of a temporary nature. They are still grounded.
Then you have the standard issue Topix atheists. Still floating around up there, but getting their thrill by pooping on people. The sense of empowerment they develop won't allow them to come back down.
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.

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!!!
Some people spend their lives traveling to one delusion from another.

Enjoy your trips.

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.:-)

Midlife. As they say, life begins at 40, or is that 30?

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.
