Big News for Me!

I have my first opportunity to potentially generate a small amount of income in the faithless world. More importantly, it is an opportunity to get my story out to more people. Maybe I can be an encouragement to someone questioning their faith, or help others understand how difficult it is when someone realizes the truth about their belief and needs to walk away.

You will be the first to hear the news! The announcement is coming soon! Stay tuned for details!

    “Faithless world” sounds so sad. But I understand. Recently left Christianity. Feeling kind of ‘faithless’ too

      Not true, KIA – I’ve gotten to know you, you have faith in lots of things, just none of them supernatural.

      I actually find the term a positive feeling term to me. I think relying on information and reason seems so much better to me. I don’t have to know everything, but if I don’t I can accept the fact that I don’t. I do not have to chalk it up to faith.

      I seem to feel more responsible for my life if I am faithless. That can be good or bad I suppose. I find it good.

        Ironically, traditional Jews used to accuse early Christian groups of eating babies, largely due to the secrecy with which they practiced their religion, due to the potential for persecution. It would seem that that is the worst characteristic of which a group can accuse their opponents.

        Exactly. Demonize them to warn the faithful to stay away.

        A not uncommon practice – this, from my original website, in His own image:

        Ingui Frea/Yngvi Freyr
            After Odin, one of the most popular Northern European gods was without doubt Ingui Frea, a god of peace (except for defensive war) and fertility. Sacrifices to him took place in midsummer, a time when weddings were performed.

           Ingui, or Yngvi, had a sister, Freyja (the “j” is silent), from whom we get our day of the week: Freyja’s day – or Friday, (as in TGIF), just as Thursday was named after Odin’s son, Thor (Thor’sday?), and Wednesday from old Odin/Woden himself: Woden’sday. Always wondered why that unpronounced letter “d” was in there, didn’t you? See, I told you you’d learn something —

             Freyja was portrayed as a goddess of love, beauty, and fertility and had a great love for cats, being normally depicted with one by her side.

            What is known about Norse and early Germanic mythology – or religion, as it was known at the time – comes to us from two books: the “Poetic Edda,” compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the “Prose Edda and Heimskringla,” written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson (NOT one of the 7 Dwarfs!).

            Early Christian missionaries, as was their quaint custom, sought to discredit Freyja by demonizing her, hence the best documented source of information about these gods, “Norse Mythology,” was altered by medieval Christian historians, claiming Freyja to be a witch, and her cat, her familiar.

             And that’s why witches have black cats to this very day. Next Halloween, don’t forget to ask your minister about that —

        We were looking for community without the Christian part. It seems to be filled with a lot of people from many different backgrounds and faith histories. Much wider acceptance base and at least from what we have experienced so far, very caring people.

        I prefer the term “faith free” but I suppose in the end it amounts to the same thing.

    I came in to bring up the term “faithless world” but it seems it’s mainly what we’re talking about. I love the phrase because a Christian would use the term as a negative and an atheist would use the term as a positive. Love it. Love the potential good news. Can’t wait to hear more.
