The Sun Also Sets.: This is demanding more of me than I'm sure I have time for.
I do not believe in Christianity because it is oppressive, manipulative, and harmful.
It teaches a person to view themselves as inherently bad. It teaches them to view themselves as stained and dirty and in need of redemption. I can think of no more harmful thing to teach a person than that,…
“Losing my faith certainly has offered up a plethora of questions, yes. Questions about purpose and meaning and the future; all of it. However, I would rather have a bevy of wonder, while steadily chipping away at ideologies that fail to access reality, than rest on a bed of lies, no matter how comfortable they might be.”

so these guys from my floor came by asking if i wanted them to pray for me. at first i kinda froze. i think they thought i was gonna say no, i’m atheist. which i kinda am. i don’t know. i believe that the ultimate force is science, but sometimes it’s comforting to believe in a higher power that is listening. BUT ANYWHO, even though i have my doubts, i wasn’t going to miss an opportunity to have them pray for my grandparents, who are uber religious.
i don’t even know why i’m talking about this.
