I'm a lifelong athest

I briefly worked for a religious nut who had a tendency to scream at his employees. His name was Shelnut and boy did he live up to his name. He was a class A1 nutcase if I ever had the displeasure to know one.

One day after I asked him a simple question he screamed at me. After that idiot did that I went to HR and put in my resignation. I waited two long weeks before my resignation took hold.

On the last day of my employment he got to talking to me about his religion. He was a strict believer in Genesis and the whole talking snake in the garden story.

I told him that I didn't believe in Genesis and that that absurd fairy tale had been scientifically disproved.

He got p***** off as usual and tried to end the argument by saying over and over again "The bible is a divinely inspired book"

Thats horseshit and circular logic.

Is that as good as creationists can do?

  • Yes it is as good as they can do cause they have no real evidence of anything they're just scared of death and not having any meaning in life ironically they have even less meaning in life following made up bullshit

  • I am a scientist and I used to be an atheist. My experience as a passenger in an airplane changed me. The pilot had given up, we had circled and almost exhausted the gas and we were five minutes to crashing. The landing gear was not responding. All the while, the "religious people" were praying. I noted that Christians were more confident in their prayers to Jesus and overtime, even the other religious folks joined them in calling "Jesus, savior, save us" etc. last five minutes, the gear was out without the crew's manipulation and we landed safely. I began reading the New Testament from that day! I only wanted to know about Jesus. I read it in my phone (copy online). I do not attend church and folks do not know about me as a Church person. For years, I had wanted to quit drinking and smoking which had cost me friends and jobs; I even attended therapies. I figured that if Jesus could do all the miracles I read about and what happened in the plane that day, he could do that. And did he do it? Yes, he did! For two years I've been free.

  • Not a very good scientist lol you don't have an excuse...

  • You can land a plane without landing gear and survive. A mechanical device wasn't working properly but like many defective devices it eventually did work. Nothing divine about that. Think of all the Christian mothers who have prayed to god to heal their sick child who died anyway. Go back to your science. When you pray no one is listening.

  • So what happened to my age long alcohol and smoking (of lots of smokables; perhaps some you do not even know) addiction which disappeared instantly? I am still a scientist but a better informed scientist. Take this challenge buddy, look at your life and find what you consider a problem and talk to Jesus. Put him to the test and if he resolves it in a way that defies scientific explanation, then get along and read his teachings. No other religious leader ever claimed to save. The ball is in your court.

  • You quit on your own and gave the credit to some diety thats what happened.

  • I read your narration with deep sense of empathy. A lot of folks have had enough confusion from a "confused world" to last for a life time! Lack of "personal identity" can bore oneself sick even to having suicide thoughts . Have I once considered suicide in my life? Yes and indeed, many folks you see that walk the streets are full of challenges and pains that were inflicted or innate. In my own case, in my teens , I thought I will not be able to achieve anything because I was abused as a child , lived in a home that always felt like an explosive device was about to ignite. I struggled with these feelings and tried to fill the void via alcohol and "street smokes". I found fake boldness that was transient. I envied and wanted to be like others. I began to steal. Well, I am an adult now, well educated, employed, married, had kids, drug/alcohol/smoke free, and really free from all my demons. How? Yes, I know that this will be the question in your heart. It sounded foolish and dreamlike but it was real. Someone gave me a copy of "New Testament and Psalms and proverbs"; a little blue covered book which could fit into my pocket. It was published by Gideon international. I began to read it from "The Gospel of John" like he advised me. I love reading and it made sense. Well, I may not be able to tell you all that happened to me but I discovered that as I read it daily, I began to be attracted to and talk to the main character in the story; Jesus and it seemed like and old self of mine was dropping off daily. At some point , I was shocked when I was out with my friends and realized that I hadn't touched alcohol in the past 2 weeks! And the stranger thing was that alcohol lost its appeal to me. In fact, it disgusted me. My friends told me that they will "give me just three months" and I will drink myself to stupor like before. well it has been years and I keep getting better; more pleasant than the person I ever tried to be. Jesus is beautiful.
