• A Call to All Former Theists!

    by  • April 23, 2013 • Atheism • 4 Comments

    I am creating a series for the blog based on interviews I will conduct with fellow atheists. Particularly, I am interested in former theists and/or cult members. These interviews/stories will focus on your experience as a theist vs your experience as an atheist and the psychology behind your de-conversion.

    You may remain anonymous if you wish. These interviews will be for informational purposes and while they will be personal and in depth, the goal is not to expose you. However, for those who wish to publish their name and/or Twitter handle, that would be great!

    Please contact me here and give me a brief synopsis of your personal journey. Thank you!

    PLEASE RETWEET! I want to reach as many people as possible!

      Ive started work on my Refuting Theistic Claims Guide freeatheism.org/rtcguide … it will highlight great atheist debater responses to common claims. I have been toying with the idea of including/ adding a psychological aspect to the guide. Perhaps recording how previous theists once justified and viewed the same claims and then what changed their mind about it. So perhaps the guide also suggest why each claim was true to them…ex: misinformation, ignoring evidence, believing authority…etc.

      Is this in line with your purpose? Do you think this idea would pan out to be helpful to atheist?… so to know why theres a claim in the first place.

      Let me know… could be a nice blend of helpful info.

        Hi Artie, Sorry it’s taken a few days to respond. I think that sounds great and is pretty in line with where I am going with my project! Once I get started and publish a few, you can review and ask questions of you like. Thanks! Lei

      Hey. Thought I’d check in and see what you are looking for from former theists. I had been a Christian since around 94 or so. Then back around the end of the year, my faith disappeared. There are a couple things I think I can attribute it to, but for the most part its just been out of the blue. Anyway, I understand you want subjects to interview? What kind of format would the interview be? If its email based, I would consider participating. Let me know what you have in mind.
