Thanks for the creating the website. [#1030]

Great job.

I wonder if you have any sense of if you have reached any believers and moved them
to wake up? It has been my experience that it's like trying to prove 2+2=4 -- it's
so obvious, so basic, so axiomatic -- what do say when they just say "No it isn't,
the bible says its 5."?

Anyway, thanks for the fantastic site. Best wishes in all your endeavors.

Many of us were Christians at one time.  This site has helped many to see the light. ;)

It didn't deconvert me, I have been non-Christian (allegedly) since at least 2005... but the site helped settle things for me :) There's a whole section for thank yous and deconversion stories
Live! Learn! Laugh! Love! Lead!

I'm not all analysis, I like art, too: See?

Great job.

Yeah, the videos are great, aren't they?

Yep.  Some have deconverted and are in the forums here now.  Some others have moderated their original ideas.  Others, unfortunately, have remained as dogmatic as ever.

It has been my experience that it's like trying to prove 2+2=4 -- it's
so obvious, so basic, so axiomatic -- what do say when they just say "No it isn't,
the bible says its 5."?

Anyway, thanks for the fantastic site. Best wishes in all your endeavors.
