I came to the conclusion that the stories associated with Christianity were all nonsense at the age of 12. I continued in the Methodist Church for social reasons until the age of 18. I was almost always elected President of the Methodist Youth Fellowship, and I was on the Church board of directors. When I went to college, I had no more motivation to be involved in religion. I met a beautiful highly-motivated atheist woman when I was 22. We had 16 fantastic years together before she passed away. My second wife was not religious when I met her, but she became religious for social reasons. I've been trying to get divorced from her for 5 years. I've had a Catholic girlfriend for the past 3.5 years, and we get along great. She doesn't try to convert me, and I don't try to convert her.

Most people on here are atheists and that's cool and all but who on here is truly agnostic.
BD66 comments on Nov 1, 2019:
Another thing to think about. We split from the chimps on the evolutionary tree about 5 million years ago. It would be quite easy for one or more humans to completely control the lives of a group of chimps without the chimps ever being aware we were doing it. Some creatures could be doing the same thing to us.
The agnostic crowd is much more intelligent than the rest!! Sorry, but it is the truth.

Great post. I'm astounded that Socialist/Collectivist experiments have been tried over and over again since 1917, and each time they have been disastrous, but the people on this site who are too rational and intelligent to believe the religious nonsense buy into the Socialist/Collectivist nonsense.

Reminds me of a summer two years ago. My son is an atheist, but my wife sent him to church camp. He said they were going to go down the waterslides, but first the Christian counselors had to thank God for the waterslides, thank God for the water, thank God for their fellowship together. He said he was thinking: "Why can't we just go down the damn waterslide??"

When my grandfather got out of surgery, he was in a strange state of mind, and started talking about religion. He made statements like: "I suppose one religion is just as good as any other religion" My grandmother did everything she could to shut him up. My Dad never "came out" as an Atheist, but he never went to church, while my mother went and forced me and my mother to go. So it's likely I am a 3rd generation Atheist/Agnostic.

I have never blocked anyone on this site. I disagree with the political positions of many people here, but I have found I have a lot in common with them on issues outside of politics. What bothers me is the site is too compartmentalized. Many people just want to have their own views reinforced. Conservatives post things on "Conservative Atheists", with a header like "This will make the Liberals Heads explode", then they won't post it in the Politics section. If you don't have your views challenged, and you are not forced to reexamine them, you will never grow.
