Quote of the day

"I will not attack your doctrines nor your creeds if they accord liberty to me. If they hold thought to be dangerous - if they aver that doubt is a crime, then I attack them one and all, because they enslave the minds of men."

Robert G. Ingersoll

Quote of the day

"If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it."

Albert Einstein

Why Do Christadelphians Believe?


By Thom Jonas

Even though most Christadelphians might say they believe because of prophecy, or because of current events, I don't think that is actually the case. Most Christadelphians believe quite simply because they happened to be born into Christadelphian families, were taught Christadelphian doctrines from a young age, and were raised in a largely Christadelphian culture. The evidence is clear. Had they not been born into such an environment, it is almost certain they would not be Christadelphians today.

Quote of the day

"Investigate everything you believe - if it is the truth it cannot be injured; if error, the sooner it is corrected the better. Never be afraid of results to which you may be driven by your investigations, as this will inevitably bias your mind and disqualify you to arrive at ultimate truth."

Dr. John Thomas

Seeing my old religion with new eyes

By Phynnodderee

Recently I was sorting through an old box of junk and I came across something I hadn’t seen for years. It was a ‘My Beliefs’ card, a preaching aid produced by the Christadelphians in the 1990s. Looking at it again for the first time since leaving the community, I suddenly found I was seeing it – and my old religion – with new eyes.


Quote of the day

"Religion gives pseudo-answers to big questions that can’t be answered. This is what adherents discover when they make honest inquiry."

Worshipping Narcissists

Another brilliant video from TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup.

Narcissists often thrive in religious communities because both the drama they seek and easily manipulated people are readily available. This video is informative both in helping to identify narcissistic behaviour and also in offering ways to deal with it.
