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).
When a person deconverts after spending their whole lives invested in Christianity, it is normal for them to experience a wide range of emotions. It is quite common for ex-Christians to feel angry and betrayed, and they will experience this in a way not normally seen by those who were never religious. In other words, […]Read More Am I angry at Christianity?
Video game simulators are really popular for some reason. You can build your own cities, fly aeroplanes, and even experience being a bus driver!. But alas, one idea hadn’t been covered yet. One idea to trump them all; a video game which would surely be groundbreaking and needed in today’s dark uncertain times. What idea […]Read More The Jesus Simulator: Coming Soon.
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.
The Christian God is meant to know everything, to see inside our ‘inner most thoughts and hearts’. It would stand to reason then, that one shouldn’t be able to trick God. Yet in the Old Testament of the Bible, people did just that. Enter the story of Jacob and Esau. Jacob and Esau are sons […]Read More Is it possible to fool God?
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 noticed that a few of my Christian friends had put pictures of babies on their Facebook profiles, with the caption ‘Both Lives Matter’. The implication being, of course, that to have an abortion was on par with killing your child. What was the deal with all this? As it turns out, an act […]Read More Your body your choice?
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.
Forget about WWJD (what would Jesus do?); WWYD (what would YOU do) … if you were Jesus? One of my Christian relatives just shared a post about an upcoming Christian themed video game, titled ‘I am Jesus Christ’. As someone who was formerly Christian, and likes video games, I couldn’t resist checking out the trailer. […]Read More Play the Jesus simulator.
