In my early blogging days, nearly four years ago, I wrote a post about Christianity with a more positive slant. It was called Four Things I liked About Christianity. Back then I had left Christianity, but I was still a closeted atheist. The point of that post, at the time, was to acknowledge some of […]Read More What I like about Christianity (then vs now).
During the last few years of my ‘Christian life’, I started to accumulate a lot of doubts. These doubts ranged from the veracity of many of the events in the Bible, to the existence of God himself. Any attempts to sooth my doubts were met with either unsatisfactory explanations or explained away. So what did […]Read More Face your doubts.
Once upon a time, I was in a long-distance relationship. We would chat every day on the phone, claim to love each other, and enjoy each other’s company. But there was a big problem… we lived in different countries. Eventually we did meet a few times, and we really enjoyed the times we had together. […]Read More Leaving a relationship with Jesus.
I often hear from Christians that [person X] has a PhD and is really smart, and that they also happen to believe in a God/higher power. People such as Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein are often thrown into the mix. This is used to try and lend more credibility to their fanciful, often absurd beliefs. […]Read More … but intelligent people believe in God.
Recently I have had a bunch of Christians (and people from some other religions) come and visit my blog. Some of them want to discuss religion with me, in the hopes that myself (or people reading) might change their minds, while others came here looking for a fight. To some extent, this is to be […]Read More Dear Christians…
Recently I changed my blog name to The Liberated Atheist. I have yet to properly change my blog’s address. Apparently it’s an easy thing to do, but I must do it without losing my followers or having all of my links being broken. If you have managed to change your WordPress blog without having any […]Read More My New Blog Name and Backstory.
There are many closeted atheists out there – I was one of them. For many, leaving their religion behind is a significant endeavor; and it is also difficult to tell your religious friends and family that you don’t believe in it all anymore. Why? For many religious people, their religion is a massive part of […]Read More How to come out to others about your beliefs.
I first started blogging back in April 2017. Back then, I was outwardly Christian, and I regularly attended church. The problem was, I no longer believed in the religion which I once embraced; I hadn’t believed in it for years. In fact, I decided I no longer wanted to be a part of it all […]Read More I am no longer Covert.
What is your reaction when someone offers to pray for you? Do you politely accept their offer? Do you refuse? Do you get offended? I ask this because recently I got put on the spot like this, from a couple of my Christian friends. The setting in question. Recently I caught up with an old […]Read More Can I pray for you?
I was driving down the road, thinking about life as you do, when it all started to come flooding back. You know, I considered myself an atheist. I don’t believe in a God. I’m not sure if Jesus was a real person, let alone the son of God. Yet something happened recently which challenged those […]Read More I met Jesus’s mother.
