I just sort of stumbled upon this site accidentally, and I must say, I quite enjoy it.
I guess I self-identify as Christian, but I always say Lutheran, both because that's the exact faith I was raised in (and was oddly a great fit for me) and because it confuses many Southern Baptists and Evangelicals ("Umm, are you even Christian? Like, have you been saved??), because they don't quite know enough about religious history :).
As for that, I'm in a weird position, because I admire the revolutionary nature of Jesus, and the things that he taught and said (if we were to take an historical view of the gospels). But of course, I very much doubt he was magic, and I am pretty sure he was not a demigod. But how to you accept the lessons of a prophet, but reject his god? I digress.
Point of this post, is to both say how amusing and actually intellectually stimulating this site is, and to ask if you know of any similar resources?
I'm in graduate school at the moment, so I'm not fond of reading books outside the bounds of assigned work, as I'm overloaded on reading in general. But I do want to find some articles and forum threads out there that are lighthearted but also make you think.
Aside from that, it wouldn't hurt to hear other opinions on how to deal with what may be the early stages of atheism or agnosticism. I wholeheartedly question things, but I still want something to believe in. That thing used to be the inherent goodness of humankind, but I'm starting to doubt that one as well. How did you deal with the transition from belief to skepticism? That's something I've just had on the back burner for several years and assumed I'd figure out later...
Thanks for reading, and thanks for some of your many insights on other threads! :)
