I was born into a Mormon family and raised to be a Moron (oops, Mormon). I even served a two-year mission in Argentina. Later, I married a Mormon woman and had two children. While the children were still quite young, I did some research, hoping to prove Mormonism to be correct, so that I could convert my non-Mormon friends. I was shocked to discover that Joseph Smith, the founding prophet of the Mormons, was a false prophet. He made predictions in the name of the Lord that did not come true, and the time of their possible fulfillment had passed. Therefore, I left the Morons and was excommunicated for apostasy. Upon my excommunication, my wife took the children and disappeared. Later, she divorced me. I have not seen her since.

No more warm showers for me! Also, I shall continue to swim in cold lakes. :)

Yeah. He'd better not drive his own car. The stick shift might pop right through the hole in his hand. 😲😂🤣
Question?
BestWithoutGods comments on May 30, 2020:
The liberals would survive the longest, because they would support and help one another. The conservatives have a mindset that every man should look our for himself -- let the fittest survive, and let the weakest die.
How many points did you get, and can others guess what they are?? (my point score in the comments.)

How did you, or do you react to these 2 photos, and the stories behind them?
BestWithoutGods comments on May 27, 2020:
I don't understand the first photo. Are they changing a flat tire? I'm totally with Colin Kaepernick, so the second photo lifts my spirits. He is protesting a serious issue, and I would kneel with him any time.
This is beyond me, but anecdotally, I live in a forest and it's always at least 5 - 10º cooler here...

With or without religion
BestWithoutGods comments on May 27, 2020:
I think people would be much friendlier and more ethical without religion. Religion tends to put people in opposing camps. It also stifles ethics, because it teaches people not to think too much, and just listen to what the church leaders say and obey without question. I knew very little of ethics until I abandoned religion.
I’m looking for suggestions wonderful humans.

Too many atheists are hostile to the religious.
BestWithoutGods comments on May 24, 2020:
I try to be kind to the people who are victims of the scam. Those who ignorantly perpetuate the scam are also victims. The victims have my pity. After all, I was also a victim for about 30 years, brainwashed as a child. My hostility is toward the scam itself, and those who knowingly perpetrate the scam.
Was Jesus a man who became mythicized or a myth that became historicized or something else?
BestWithoutGods comments on May 23, 2020:
It could be a combination of the two. Jesus could have been a myth based on a real person (but exaggerated quite a bit) who became "historical" to those who exercise blind faith in him.

Jesus loves you.
BestWithoutGods comments on May 21, 2020:
If Jesus is real and wants me to follow him, he'll have to send me some evidence. Otherwise, the available evidence convinces me that his religion is a myth and a scam.
I would steer clear for sure.

BestWithoutGods comments on May 21, 2020:
Should I have "faith" in an email sent by a "Nigerian Prince" who offers to transfer a million dollars to my bank account? Should I send him my account number and password so he can do that? NOOOOOOO!!!!! I would find my account empty! The world is full of scams. I must see sufficient evidence to back up a claim before I accept it as true. Though I have spent years searching for evidence that gods exist, and that the Bible is true, I have found none. Nobody who believes has been able to back up their claims with sufficient evidence. My conclusion is that anyone who claims I must have blind faith in a religion is a scam artist.
So that's how it happened!
BestWithoutGods comments on May 21, 2020:
I'm pretty sure it had been going on long before 1672.
Utah Decriminalizes Polygamy with Near Unanimous Support by Legislators - Daily Citizen
BestWithoutGods comments on May 21, 2020:
Having been born into a Moron (oops, Mormon) family, and having been brainwashed to become a Moron myself, I am familiar with the church's history of polygamy. Yes, they got the idea of polygamy from the Bible, and made it part of their own doctrine. The Morons gave up polygamy quite a long time ago. However, there were offshoots of the Moron church in Utah that continued, and still continue the practice of polygamy. I am very happy to be free from such a Moronic scam.

Is it still a lie if you don't know it isn't true?
BestWithoutGods comments on May 18, 2020:
It's not a lie if you hedge it with something like, "According to Mr. X, ..." At least it is not your own lie. It could still be Mr. X's lie.
What would you do/say if a Christian friend told you they're questioning their faith?
BestWithoutGods comments on May 17, 2020:
I would encourage him to do research on the Bible to see if it is less perfect than what the preachers tell him. Then I would offer my own research to show him that the Bible contains false prophecies and contradictions, and ask him to prove me wrong, if he can. :)
I hate Theists

I do not hate the people who are brainwashed and scammed by religion. Rather, I pity them. What I hate is the scam itself.
Atheism is an absense of belief in god(s).

It is difficult being surrounded by idiots, especially here in a Southern state. But to have one in the White House, too!? That's too much. And the Senate run by idiots!? C'mon! It's depressing. But I can still vote for the progressive side, and that's what I do.

Does anything about being in an atheist or agnostic social network provide comfort?
BestWithoutGods comments on May 14, 2020:
It is nice to be in a place where I can express my knowledge freely, without getting attacked. The Bible says to "love your neighbor as yourself," but if I mention (no matter how kindly I say it) to a Christian that religion is a scam based on mythology, they are likely to shift into the hypocrite mode, and treat me scornfully. On this forum, most people are more understanding.

Morals.
BestWithoutGods comments on May 10, 2020:
I prefer the word *ethics* rather than *morality*. When I was in religion, I had no ethical code for myself. I was brainwashed to listen to church leaders and obey whatever they said, without question. Once I became free from religion, I found the need to form my own ethical code. I based it on the older-than-the-bible saying that we should treat others the way we would like to be treated. So, I do good for others, and do not hurt them, except when it is necessary to defend myself, or others, against their harmful actions.
