Eight days ago, a lifelong Christian posted on Reddit’s /r/atheism forum, saying that he was going to spend a week trying to think like an atheist, so he could get to better understand our perspective. Yesterday, he wrote a follow-up post summarizing the experience. In short: he no longer considers himself a Christian, distrusts the authority of the Bible, and has tons of questions (about his own Christian beliefs) left unanswered.
For a while now, I’ve basically been planning not to be at the Reason Rally. Not for lack of trying – I reserved a spot on a bus about a month and a half ago, but until there were enough reservations, the bus wasn’t actually confirmed. Seeing how up until yesterday we still needed 11 more people to sign up – and the rally is this Saturday – I had resigned myself to experiencing it vicariously through people who went.
But what do I see when I hop on Facebook today?
You’re damn right I like this! I reserved long enough ago that I got my ticket with the discount. $45 is getting me down to DC and back in style. Woot! Many thanks to CDHS!
As seen today on Reddit:
Either that, or “Dear God, help me deal with something bad in my life.” Because… you know… we need supernatural help for that.
