    Damn, MOI took my idea.
    Well it certainly has been an honour contributing to this ongoing discussion. A special thanks to everyone who responds to our heretical sense and nonsense – keep up the good work The de-Convert and all the other contributors.

Attention Christian Readers

Just in case you were wondering who we are and why we de-converted.

de-conversion wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God reviewing your life, you will be judged on your actions and not just on your ability to blindly believe in creeds- when there is a significant lack of evidence on how to define God or if he/she even exists.
