From Missionary To Atheist Part 1

“An atheist?”, gasp some Jehovah’s Witnesses or even Ex-JW’s who I have revealed this to. “Haven’t you thrown out the baby with the bathwater?” they may protest using the worn-out cliché. Or “You must have rejected God so you can do whatever you want with your life. Well actually, no, neither of these statements adequately describes my journey. Permit me to explain. I would like to clarify what I mean by atheist. I do not deny that a god may exist. What I have concluded, after reviewing the evidence, is that neither the Bible-god nor any other god that humans have believed in throughout history has any basis in hard evidence. If there is a god, and he or she decides to break silence and demonstrate his or her existence, I would be happy to believe and even worship, if that is what the deity requires. At any rate, I hope that both believers and non-believers alike will find my experience to be interesting.

For many, the worst part of being an ex-Witness or an atheist is the assumptions people make. That, and their clumsy attempts to reconvert us. Part 2 can also be found here at Freeminds.

Thought I’d mention that I also made a few revisions to my essay. Download the PDF and let me know what you think. I’m also working on getting that podcast of it up and running, too. If you’re interested in getting involved with any future projects like that, you can email me (my email’s on the About page) or post your interest on this thread. Very special thanks to Edradour for the recordings he’s already sent!

  1. “If there is a god, and he or she decides to break silence and demonstrate his or her existence, I would be happy to believe and even worship, if that is what the deity requires.”
    I have never been able to understand the link between the existence of a god and the worship. For which deeds would they deserve to be adored? Many people exist, but I don’t worship them.

    • I tend to agree, actually. If god-like aliens surrounded the planet, they could force human worship. But that would make them serious dicks, wouldn’t it?

      I’m not sure how or why a true god should be seen any differently. What are you quoting from, BTW?

  2. Ty says:

    Indeed. God always comes across as an insecure abusive husband.

    “Why do you force me to hurt you when I love you so much?”

    No thanks. I have no interest in worshiping anyone, much less someone who tries to get my adoration through threats of violence.
