Go to: Losing Your Religion: Analytic Thinking Can Undermine Belief

retep57's Avatar Jump to comment 30 by retep57

worked for me, I was a hard core YEC fundie xian for decades, I tried to analyze the "obvious errors " in TGD and God is not great etc. naturally I "knew" that dawkins and hitchens were " of the devil" , the trouble (?) was, the more I tried to honestly analyze them... the more my (then) religious dogma crumbled . Now Richard and Chrsitopher and ( also Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett) are personal heroes of mine. no more dogma. yes, get the beleivers to analyze. worked for me, and again, thanks so much Richard et al.

Go to: Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless

Crazy xians with their delusion crap. Test something to see whether or not it is a delusion. Sounds like you have been sent the "god delusion" rather than "the god delusion"

I live in Melbourne , last GAC I was only a few months out of being a Christian , was way to chicken to go to it. this time, I am going, paid up and counting down the days, and as for the ad on buses,, yay, makes me glad to be a paid member of Aussie atheists 3 years ago Dawkins was the devil, now (oddly , he is now regarded by me as one of the best people on the planet. Thengod delusion will always be special to me, my first tentavie steps away from delusion to reality, thanks again Richard.
