Thank you! [#1642]
« on: July 26, 2009, 08:37:15 PM »

I was thinking today about my journey from christen to atheist and I remembered your video, The best optical illusion in the world! I was just searching for interesting optical illusions on line when I clicked on your video by mistake. This was the first video I had ever seen directly challenging my belief in god. I first viewed it with resistance but it managed to spiked my interest. I started to research religion and came across more videos like yours. A year later, I now call myself an atheist. I forgot all about your video until today and now that I think of it your video was the first step. As cheesy as it sounds, thank you for helping me free my mind.

Fantastic.  Congratulations on your rationalistic re-birth.  Feel free to join up and share your experiences with us.
What is above all needed is to let the meaning choose the word, and not the other way around.

I edit a lot of my posts. The reason being it to add content or to correct grammar/wording. All edits to remove wording get a strike through through the wording.

Congratulations on your transition to rational thought.  Trust me, it's so much better than religious delusion.

I didn't make the videos, but thank you and join the forum, there are some wonderful people here that you can learn so much from.
