    Do you 'feel better' being an athiest??

    Yes, people reflect the personality of the god they worship..................especially JW's with their vindictive, arrogant, god.

    I don't believe in hell either, most of the family principals ie... deep respect for husband, love wife as own body. I kinda believe in some astrology. I'm supposedly a Gemini and people swear I have a split personality. lol

    Still don't believe in hellfire, not sure about the Trinity, have a tendency to believe in creation--

    I'm not sure about a lot of things, but the older I get the less I care or worry about it.

    Trinity, hellfire among others. Swamboozled, i will never be able to look at a stick of brocolli in the same way ever again!

    yeh, they taught me that I can't ask or trust in Jesus for anything.

    I still believe that.

    I believe in the value of personal study... just not from the Watchtower rags, anymore.

    Hmm, because of the Witnesses.

    Well sure! I believe they're royally f**ked up.

    There are many things I no longer believe in because of the witnesses. I don't believe in the Bible, it is just a book, and I don't believe in hell, because I don't believe in original sin. So with sin why would you need hell? I am not sure what I believe about God, except if there is one she would not be so petty as Jehovah seems to be. Pam

    It took me ten years after leaving to finally dispel the idea of Armageddon. I didn't BELIEVE believe in it, but there was always a sense of doom hovering over me. I called it 'Armageddon Clouds'.
