hello

Hello everybody. Im a new to this site. I am a Long time Believer no more. This site and the whole squad has helped me to open my eyes to the truth. And the truth is so wonderful to behold. I am mainly on here to connect with people who share the same views and beliefs on religion as me.

Open your mind to the truth and set your past views a blaze.

    Hello and welcome, i

    Hello and welcome, i myself am fairly new, and this site and forum I have found to be great. It has many great people, both theists and non, that i find at least the majority so far, have great intellect and reasoning (even if I think they are daft for believing in their gods Sticking out tongue) and generally they are nice tolerant people, at least tolerant of good logical reasoning.

Welcome!!  I'm sure you'll meet plenty of ex-believers who feel exactly the same way around these parts.  What religious tradition are you coming from, if you don't mind me asking...

Welcome to the forums,

Welcome to the forums, gr8ness!

It really is a wonderful experience to realize that theism is just a fairy tale, isn't it?

We're glad you're here and look forward to your contributions to the discussions.

Whenever I see someone ask that question I'm reminded of a joke....

 

"I was in San Fransisco once, walking along the Golden Gate Bridge, and I saw this guy on the bridge about to jump. So I thought I’d try to stall and detain him, long enough for me to put the film in my camera."

"I said, “Don’t jump!” and he turns… You’ve heard of the elephant man. He was kind of like that, he had a, well, you could say he had the head of a horse. And my heart went out to him. I said, “Why the long face?”

 "He said, ”’Cause all my life people have called me mean names like horses-head or Flicka or chess-piece or Trigger…”

"I said, “Well, don’t worry about it, Ed. It can’t be that bad.”

"He said, “My girlfriend’s suing me!”

"I said, “For palomino?”

"He said, “Why was I put on this Earth?”

"I said, “My friend, anywhere else you wouldn’t stand a chance.”

"He said, “Nobody loves me.”

"I said, “God loves you, you silly ninny.”

"He said, “How do you know there’s a God?”

"I said, “Of course there’s a God. Do you think that billions of years ago a bunch of molecules floating around at random could someday have had the sense of humor to make you look like that?”

"He said, “I do believe in God.”

"I said, “Are you a Christian or a Jew?”

"He said, “A Christian.”

"I said, “Me too. Protestant or Catholic?”

"He said, “Protestant.”

"I said, “Me too! What franchise?”

"He says, “Baptist.”

"I said, “Me too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?”

"He says, “Northern Baptist.”

"I said, “Me too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?”

"He says, “Northern Conservative Baptist.”

"I say, “Me too! Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist or Northern Conservative Reform Baptist?”

"He says, “Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist.”

"I say, “Me too! Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Great Lakes Region or Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Eastern Region?”

"He says, “Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Great Lakes Region.”

"I say, “Me too! Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879 or Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?”

"He says, “Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912.”

"I said, “Die, heretic!” And I pushed him over!"
