What would the difference be if I had never committed to Christianity to the degree that I did? It's a question that I often come back to and reflect on. I think it's important to distinguish the Christian undercurrents that affected the West's development over the last two thousand years and my own personal commitments … Continue reading A Difference…
Before I had let go of my religious conviction, when I realised it wasn't rooted in anything tangible, I always thought that people knew, deep down, that God was literally real. Rather than being honestly uncertain about His existence, they rather wanted to live their own way and didn't want anything to do with Him. … Continue reading Could God…
It's April 2020 as I write this. The UK has just been told we are about to enter into a further 3 weeks of lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with an expectation that things will continue after that as well. Most people have found themselves with a little more time on their hands compared … Continue reading Dragged into the fray
I am tired of people not knowing what I believe or why I believe it. But why am I tired of this? Why do I keep being tempted to share my views and my beliefs with the world? I know that I share my views with you all on here, but you have found this … Continue reading To Go Public Or Not?
I got a physical letter the other day. I spoke to a good friend and told them that I had deconstructed my faith. They had a really good conversation with me and following our chat they went away and read through my first ten or so blog posts. I wanted to share my response to … Continue reading A Letter to a Friend
I’ve hinted a few times now that I will no longer be hiding my deconversion. I won't actively share the podcast episodes with people pre-emptively, but I will defiantly share it with them if the right conversation takes place face to face. I had my parents over this weekend, they come over to see us … Continue reading We Already Sort Of Knew
Maybe you have already heard it, maybe you haven't. A good few months ago I was on The Graceful Atheist Podcast (you can listen to it here). I have known David for a while and I really enjoy our chats when we manage to have them. For this one episode, I managed to tell my … Continue reading The Graceful Atheist Podcast
Welcome! I am expecting some of you are here because of the recent episode of Unbelievable? that I was on. I am writing this a few days before it goes live and publishing it the day afterwards. This is strange for me as I very rarely release blog posts within a few days after writing … Continue reading Who cut the String?
Is my level of evidence higher than God could/would ever fulfil? It's an interesting question. One I think we should all ask ourselves regularly. What level of evidence do we require to claim something as 'true'? What level of evidence do we need to shake us from the current world view that we hold? How … Continue reading Is the evidence in?
I will keep this short, I don't wanna rant whilst I am pissed off. I am slowly coming out to those around me, as they begin to ask why I no longer lead or preach at church. It's a strange feeling, I mean I don't think I ever asked people 'how is your faith' or … Continue reading You will know them by their fruit…
