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, I got divorce papers in the mail. I have not seen her since.

BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 17, 2020:
I'll take reality over mythology any day. I do not want to fool myself with myths. If a close friend or family member were fooling himself or herself with myths, I would ask for evidence that the myths are true. If they dare to do research for evidence that their myths are true, they will likely find just the opposite. They have NO evidence for their myths.

My sheet music is this: Whenever missionaries addresses me, I ask for facts and evidence to back up what they say. Sometimes I show them evidence of false prophecies and contractions in the Bible. Some are more patient than others, but at some point, the missionaries will run away, never to contact me again. Hooray! And I hold onto the hope that I have planted a seed of logic and reason in them, and maybe it will bear fruit in the future. :)

BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 14, 2020:
My first marriage was to a Moron (Mormon) when I, too, was a Moron. When I discovered that Moronism was false, I left the church and was excommunicated for apostasy (best thing the Morons ever did for me). My wife, still clinging to Moronism, took the children and disappeared. Later I was served with divorce papers. I will never again form a meaningful relationship with a person who is deceived by religion.

BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 14, 2020:
You are correct. Religion abuses not only its followers, but the non-followers as well. It is a scam for collecting money from the masses -- a scam based on nothing but mythology. It brainwashes children and adults into thinking that the mythology is reality. Religion teaches that morality consists only of hearing and obeying the religious leaders. It disdains ethics, science, thinking and evaluation. It teaches its followers to shun non-followers, thus splitting up families and friendships. We have every right to speak up against the abuses of religion.

BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 13, 2020:
I studied apologetics for years while making my way out of religion. They consistently use bad logic, and fail to provide any convincing evidence for their claims. Of course, I did not read all the apologetics that exist, and there is a slight possibility that there is some such book that makes sense. But no such reasonable apologetics book has come to my attention.

I can relate. My paternal ancestry were Morons (Mormons), and my maternal ancestry was Methodist. When Mom married Dad, she became a Moron, too. I was brainwashed to be an uber-Moron, so I understand my need for a straight jacket until I finally grew a brain. Thanks to public education for teaching me to think scientifically.

BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 12, 2020:
Reading the Bible, and comparing its "prophecies" to history, is what freed me from religious scams. In religion, there are no ethics. They only teach people to listen and obey. Only when I became free from religion did I study ethics and apply it to my actions. I am much happier and more ethical as an atheist. :)

People are so fucking stupid
BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 11, 2020:
Yep. I was raised to be a Moron. It wasn't until my late 20's when I finally did some research and found out that Moronism was founded on a bunch of lies. The founding "prophet," Joseph Smith, made a lot of predictions in the name of God, and many of them failed to come true. He was, therefore, a false prophet. I am very happy to know the truth at last, and be free from that scam.

BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 7, 2020:
In my years of study, I was open to all possibilities. I have also followed the evidence that I gathered, and became an atheist. I am not a "know it all" atheist, though. I admit the possibility that there is evidence I have missed in my search for truth. When I get into a conversation with people who are not atheists, I ask for their evidence. So far, nobody has offered any evidence that has changed my mind. So, until such evidence comes to my attention, I remain an atheist. :)

BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 6, 2020:
You are right. Religion typically teaches mythology as if it were reality, and it attacks reality as if it were a lie. Once one examines the evidence on both sides (as I have done for years), one must reject religion and the false "morality" of the Bible, and embrace science and sensible ethics.

Vegan Hunting Photos
BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 5, 2020:
What I like about veganism and vegetarianism is that we don't have to kill our fellow animals in order to eat. We don't need firearms, which are made for killing and murdering. We should repeal the Second Amendment, which, according to its stated purpose, is no longer necessary. Then we should forbid citizens from owning firearms. They should only be in the hands of the police and the military.

BestWithoutGods comments on Jan 2, 2020:
Be as respectful of their right to think as they please, as you would like them to respect your equal rights. Be honest about your understanding, but don't shove it down their throats. Regardless of your good will, some may distance themselves from you (my brother cut me entirely out of his life). Politely accept and honor their choice. Others (like my sister) will love you even more than before. If anyone tries to convert you to their religion, listen to them and read whatever literature they give you. Then you may point out weaknesses in their arguments and ask for solid evidence of what they are telling you. They will probably point to the Bible as "evidence." At that point, ask for evidence that the Bible is believable. You might even point out false prophecies and contradictions in the Bible. At that point, the person trying to convert you will generally give up and go away. This is according to my own experience. In other settings, it might be different. In any case, be respectful and gentle with others.
“I’m not perfect, I’m just forgiven” is the most enabling statement ever made! Christians...
