when the hell did you become a ATHEIST?

"I have just one question I love you but when the hell did you become a ATHEIST?"


That was an email I received from my very religious church going aunt whom I love to pieces and will be here in Australia in 8 days.

8 days before she arrives and she has to now find out. I've been an atheist for a little over 5 years now. I thought I was doing a damn good job at hiding it from her. Until she found facebook.
I knew this day would come eventually. Since I was the one who helped her get started using the computer and going online. I just hope that she respects me and my views and I will always respect her beliefs even though they are not my own.

I am no longer hiding my weight online so why should I hide my religious views from the people I love and care about. She was the only person I was hiding from. So now that she knows. I have nothing to hide any more.

I am an Atheist,

Here is a list of a few things that I do not believe in.
-God
-Devil
-Higher powers
-Heaven
-Hell
-Ghosts
-Karma
-Luck
-Miracles
-Everything happens for a reason
-Everything comes in 3's


I believe that when you die you do not go to a heaven where you see all your family and friends who have died before you. I believe that once you die that's it there is nothing else.

I believe in science. When science proves without a shadow of doubt that there is a god and he created the earth in 7 days, that's when I will believe in god. Until then I believe in nothing.

9 <3 me:

Well of course things don't happen in 3's! They happen in 20's! Well, to me at least...

Yay, a fellow Sims 2 lover!

See my blog soon please,
James

Hi Mindy- Just wanted to say I LOVE your blog! I discovered it a few days ago and it's great! You're an excellent writer.

Yea, facebook (and the likes of it) certainly make it difficult anything from the fam! I fear the day my mother creates a fb profile. Good luck with the aunt!

Natasha said...

Whoops, I wish I could edit my comment- that's meant to say "to hide anything from the fam". Sorry, I'm sick and my brain isn't working correctly!

Oh I've been there too... one of the biggest reasons why I created the TBM Lounge on YDU was because one of my family members discovered a post I'd made about him and proceeded to post a VERY scathing reply! For everyone to see! I could've died.

So did you respond to her email?

I'm behind you a hundred percent.

Except, sometimes I like to THINK I believe in karma as it's a way for me to keep myself being not so much of a complete arsehole when I should be being nice.

I don't know. A little white lie to keep muself in check.

Kinda like Santa for children.

:)

Well posted though.

James- I checked out your blog.. Looks good, I'll keep checking in on you when you get more content.

Natasha- Thanks very much, I love compliments even though i don't always know how to accept them. Facebook is a crazy website that everyone and their gods are on it. I can't believe how popular it has become

Tors-I love your TBM lounge the things I can't say on my blog and don't feel comfortable saying so the entire world will know I write there. Thank you for that

Oh and yes i did reply to her email. I said this "You know Miggy no matter what I love and respect you.
I respect who you are and your beliefs.

I have however been an atheist for a little over 5 years now.

I hope that you don't think any less of me and I really hope that this wouldn't change our relationship at all. It's just who I am.

I love you
Mindy"

Melyssa- I still like to believe in Santa so that if I'm good all year long I'll get great gifts for Christmas. I just sometimes never want to grow up.

Hi Mindy-

Remind me not to invite you over for Easter dinner-- ha,ha. Did I mention we're non-practicing Jews?
We're pretty in a similar mindset, specifically regarding organized religion.

Omigod can someone shut these bats up outside my window-- they're psycho.

But I'm all about Karma.

See you Wednesday!
By the way- what is the TBM lounge?

SuperMindy said...

Laura- I celebrate the holidays like Easter and Christmas just because I like to believe in Santa and the Easter bunny though.

Good thinking- why miss out on all the fun Jesus stuff--
was that offensive to Christians?
sorry bout that. :)
