Re: YouTube...

I definitely do not consider the sleep paralysis stuff to be supernatural in any way, shape or form. I no longer have paralysis dreams involving spirits because I've learned to stay calm when I realize I'm having one. Sometimes I attempt to scream for family in my house and I can barely squeeze out ...

Re: YouTube...

I'm feeling a little better now. I'm realizing there is nothing I can do to acquire enough knowledge to know what's going on. I would have to spend hours upon hours upon hours on each subject... Read numerous books about each subject.. Decide where each author made mistakes.. It's just too much. For...

Re: Social Anxiety!

I know what you mean. I feel like I don't understand what friends are for. Like I don't understand the purpose of socializing and stuff until I really need it. And at that point I usually have to call someone late at night when I've completely lost it. I have trouble figuring out what my personality...

Re: YouTube...

As far as supernatural stuff: A while back I went to a retreat thing with some people from my school. There was a healer guy once I got there and I didn't buy into that at all. But I was curious about speaking in tongues and went up to see what that was all about. They really hyped up the holy spiri...

Re: YouTube...

I think the thing I'm struggling with the most is that my entire Christian experience was confusion. There was no real relationship with God. Prayer appeared useless and distracting. I would have random 'supernatural' events occur like speaking in tongues or last night I had a very odd feeling that ...

The origins of the Bible

All right guys, so at this point I'm an atheist. Nothing has ever made sense to me as a Christian. It was like putting a round peg in a square hole. I would constantly try to find reasons not to doubt but they finally became too much. I hate research. I hate wasting my life trying to find an answer ...

Re: YouTube...

As far as what I thought atheism was but turned out differently.. it was mostly realizing that atheists aren't evil people. People I used to despise and reject and close my ears to. I also struggled with guilt as a Christian. I'm now free from that. Why live constantly in guilt and constantly monito...

Re: YouTube...

As a Christian I always never ever let myself really look at arguments atheists make. I would shy away and be afraid and never really did break the surface of the other side. Recently, I chose to break through the glass. Right now I consider myself an atheist. I don't know if I will stick with this,...

Re: Socialism

Why would we give the government all the power to use our money? They will abuse it. In defense of capitalism, when you remove all the red tape surrounding business, it is much easier (and profitable!) to hire people and pay them well. Business owners HATE hiring people these days because of the gov...

Re: Does quantum physics point to God?

I didn't read the thread at all so forgive me if this has been discussed. Some are saying that something has to be observing everything in order for all the matter to stay put. If God is in fact watching everything and making everything be matter, then why are there waves when we stop looking? Would...

Re: Universal Health Care

I think there shouldn't be universal health care in America. We can't afford our current plan, why do people think we can magically afford it once we have it for EVERYONE? How could the government possibly do a better job than ME at finding the lowest cost care that is best for my lifestyle? They ca...

How to feel more 'alive'

Something that has been bothering me lately is having trouble with being in the moment. I feel more and more like the world around me is an illusion. Like what I see isn't there. I'm always in my head, and I feel like the world is fading away while I spend time in my imagination. This is hard to des...

Women in Church?

Hi everyone, I'm reading a bunch of stuff about various false teachings happening in churches all over. (Inspired by the word faith thread.) It is ridiculously confusing because one webpage might be making good assertions on one topic, but then not so good ones on another. I feel like I can't trust ...
