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.

The stupidest excuse I've heard is that Covid-19 is just a hoax invented by the liberals. 🙄

Agree. It should be a holiday. Slavery was a shameful thing, and its end should be celebrated. :)
Have you ever been offended by being an agnostic or atheist?
BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 19, 2020:
I am proud to be an atheist. I am not offended by it. But I think others may be offended when I tell them that I'm an atheist. That's their problem.
Now this makes sense....
BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 19, 2020:
Here in Middle Tennessee, I see confederate and US flags together quite often. I have even seen the two combined into one flag. To me, it's a mixed message. Whenever I see a confederate flag, I give it the middle-finger salute. I am totally against racism and slavery.
Good question

BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 16, 2020:
When missionaries talk to me, I read the literature they give me and listen to what they say. Then I demand facts and evidence to back up their claims. I also point out the weaknesses in their arguments. Often, when I do this, they say "Goodbye" forever. Sometimes they hang on for a while, trying to "reason" with me, but I point out their logical fallacies and explain why I am an atheist. They eventually give up on me. I hope I have planted a seed of doubt, and that it will help them come to a realization of the truth. :)

Of the formerly religious people, at what age did you abandon your faith?
BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 16, 2020:
I was brainwashed from childhood to be a Moron (oops, Mormon). I abandoned Moronism (oops, Mormonism) at age 28, when I discovered that the founding "prophet," Joseph Smith, was a false prophet. I explored other Xian religions after leaving Moronism, but discovered that the biblical "prophets" were also false prophets, and that the bible was full of contradictions and non-historical myths. At that point, at age 34, I became an atheist. Free at last! :D

Let me run this by everyone. Are atheists less prejudiced than religious people as a whole?
BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 12, 2020:
Yes, I think atheists have better ethics. As a religious person, I was taught not to think too much, but to just listen to the church leaders and obey them without question. Nor was I to be too friendly with non-believers. Now, I have a better foundation for ethics. I can think for myself. I am not prejudiced anymore. I support civil rights now. :)

POC Atheists - What were your experiences leaving religion?
BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 7, 2020:
When I discovered that religion was a scam based on mythology, I was excommunicated from the church. My wife, then, took the children and disappeared. A little while later, I was served with divorce papers. My friends in the church wanted nothing more to do with me. I was all alone. It was difficult at the time, but I made new friends, and I had my personal integrity intact. So, I overcame that phase of my life, and am happier as an atheist than I ever was as a religionist. :)

BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 6, 2020:
Absolutely. It would be a much better world if mythology were labeled as mythology, and reality as reality. The brainwashing, in which scam artists teach mythology as if it were reality (in order to rake money out of people's pockets and purses), is not good for anyone.

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.

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.
