A Christian who tells an atheist s/he can’t live a moral life without God is like a kid on a bike with training wheels who sees his friend riding on two wheels for the first time and shouts, “You can’t ride like that!” Religions were training wheels for humanity.

There’s been some great discussions around this idea of “belief in a Deist God.” Here’s what you get: 1. An omniscient creator God 2. No evolution! 3. Explains the problem of evil 4. No answer to prayers explained = absent God Can I sign you up? Why/why not?

More than 200 years after Jesus died, Christians were still debating the exact formula for how many parts God and how many parts human he was. Fully God and fully man won the contest. So, now--as far as Christians are concerned--that's who he is. Case closed.

Trying to work this out: if you’re an or an , where are you at on the whole “existence of God” issue? To me, it’s making increasing sense to live & define the world around me without a God running the show. Deism could work, but that may be a cop-out!

Reasons why religion is dangerous to knowledge. I remember as a sixth grader trying to explain scientifically how the ark of the covenant could have killed Uzzah. My then girlfriend’s father got really agitated with me.

I remember years ago hearing a preacher say: “On Sundays, Christians live in a world where ax-heads float, the dead are raised to life, and the sick are healed. The rest of the week, they live in the ‘real world’ where none of those things occur.”

Singing “I’m trading my sorrows” caused me to bottle up and ignore my feelings while trying to tell myself I was happy because God. Now I’m terrible at being honest with others and even myself about my feelings.

We humans don’t like not knowing the answer. And if we don’t know the answer we may make one up. We get attached to our made up answers. So attached that when a fact-based true answer comes along, we may reject it. Goal: Follow the truth wherever it leads.

Televangelists are preaching the message of salvation...and rolling in both cash and controversy too.

Talking about Leaving Faith If my car plunged into a river because a bridge had washed away, and I escaped, swam to the riverbank, walked back up the road—wet, cold, and shivering—and flagged you down to warn you, would you ask why I was obsessed with the bridge?”

Your good qualities and your "spiritual gifts" come from you. They don't come from a "holy spirit" living inside you. We had them before we became Christian, and....... Surprise! We still have them after deconversion. The holy spirit is a myth.

If you’re an or an , why is it even necessary to work out a position on God - theism, deism, pantheism, panentheism, etc. Just let it go. You don't need a position on God to create a life of meaning, purpose, well-being and happiness.
