One of the more popular methods that religious adherents “prove” the superiority of their particular belief system is to compare their lives before finding god to their lives afterwards.
I’d like all you skeptics, atheists, and agnostics out there (well, those of you who read the blog, anyway) to give it a shot.
It’s not just belief in the g-man, either. Doubtlessly, countless people out there have, at one time or another, believed in any number of ridiculous things; there’s such a huge host of true believer belief out there.
So, what lies have you shed like unwanted pounds of the mind? How has it changed your life? I can say it has improved mine. You can leave a comment in the comment section, or, if you’ve got a really huge and epic story (please please please!) you can win some skeptical gear at our next meeting (or some other time). Just email me the story in either the body of an email or an open-office compatible word processor format.
