"OMgUS"

Now, I try not to get too frustrated with other people. It's a waste of energy, especially if they're going to be stubborn to the point of changing topics entirely or going on rants about random things that are barely related to what you were trying to explain.

But really.

I get that a certain member of my immediate family doesn't care how the rest of the family views them. But when you consider the fact that another person in the family was threatened to the point of people saying that they would call CPS on them if they didn't raise their children Baptist (and they were only Catholic), I think there's reason to be concerned.

Yeah.

Somehow that rational discussion was derailed into some one-sided rant about the mythical gay "agenda" (which had no relevance to the conversation), and how the person thought that Atheists considered Christians unintelligent.

Which I never even implied.

Admittedly the amount of (or lack of) evidence that these intelligent people accept as proof for their religion/god/lifestyle is rather absurd. But that's merely an observation based on what they choose to accept, not their cognitive abilities.

I think from now on I should focus on not getting into arguments (though I was only really voicing a concern at the time) at 3 in the morning when logic has taken a back seat to 'omgus' (omgus = oh my god u suck).

Bible Love


Decided to go back over some of my formerly favourite passages in the Bibble, and it's interesting reading them from a different perspective.

Well, more like a perspective that actually is thinking about wtf they're reading instead of just accepting it (making sure to skim over the parts that aren't quite as pleasant as the parts that are more friendly).

"Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen." - Hebrews 11:1

I used to absolutely love this verse. Being someone who loved imagining things and generally wallowing with their head in the clouds. Now I realize just how derp it is.

If Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things that we can't see, what about all those other people who have more 'faith' even than Christians. Take suicide bombers for example, people who scourge themselves, those who sit and fast for who knows how long (I'm not terribly versed in other religions, this is as much as I can come up with at the moment.)

But that's just the start.

You have that, and then the fact that with this logic I could say that the Flying Spaghetti Monster is substantial and has evidence simply because of the fact that there are those who might have 'faith' in it.

This is probably just the start of things, but yeah. Little by little I hope to figure out what exactly I've been fed all these years and deal with it accordingly.

April Fools!!!

Okay, I've had this blog name up for quite a while, however I've finally decided to use it for it's 'intended' purpose.

Seeing as I recently became a legal Adult, and this is April Fool's Day (which doesn't really negate the legitimacy of this post, just makes it more amusing) I'm finally coming out to my family about being Atheist.

At least on Facebook.

Which is pretty big I guess.

Oh, right. And here.

I could have gone on to my sexuality and etc, but I figure since we just moved out of the San Francisco Bay Area and into the heart of the Bible Belt, it'd be best to take things one step at a time.

Anywho.

Here I am, yes, I am an Atheist.

From time to time I plan on posting things that I find interesting, including my own interperetation of things in sermons which I hear on a weekly basis.

(I actually take notes now unlike before when it was just me sitting there going 'meh').

Hopefully this will go okay, but we'll see.

Wish me luck!! (Or not, it's up to you.)
