Hi. I’m Neil Robinson, an ex-university lecturer and teacher from the UK. Saved from Christianity a few years ago, I began to investigate just what it was I’d believed. ‘Following Jesus’ took thirty years of my life and it was all a fraud.
With over 2 billion adherents worldwide, Christianity is still the most popular and insidious belief system in the world. But it makes truth claims and promises it cannot meet – and never has – and offers a perspective of reality based on fantasy figures and scenarios for which no evidence exists. It contradicts almost everything science tells us about reality and asks its adherents to accept its propositions on ‘faith’, without question or the exercise of critical faculties. It expects them too to spread the virus whenever and wherever they can.
Like other ex-Christians, I know from the inside what Christians believe, having bought into its false promises, failed prophecies and impossible morality. And impossible morality it is, which is why most Christians practise it as if it were a form of homeopathy; in miniscule amounts and only to their own taste.
Yet, we’re all expected to respect this faith, as if believing some of the daftest things imaginable is something that deserves to be tiptoed round; as if a virus of epidemic proportions merits ‘respect’ rather than treatment.
Well, you’ll find no respect in these posts, I’m pleased to say. There might instead be some treatment, some therapy perhaps, that can help deliver minds from contagion. I’d like to think so; my hope is that each post serves in some small way as an antidote to the virus that holds millions in its delusional thrall.
‘Rejecting Jesus’ can only do you good!
