Hiya. :-) Brief question if I may. I found a symbol for Pandeism that you did which is simply a circle inside a triangle with a line going from the center of the circle to the NE point of the circle. Can you explain this in detail please? :-) I would really appreciate it. Thank in advance for your for your time.

Actually it’s a bit simplistic — the triangle, the shape of Greek letter Delta, has often been used as the symbol for Deism. The circle has on occasion been employed as a symbol for Pantheism. The line from the circle center to the perimeter represents Pi, which has that “p” sound (and which is a personal fascination for me, because it runs infinitely and its randomness allows much information to theoretically be represented therein, even though only the first few dozen digits are of any practical use for measuring anything; it is as well a fun contrast to Christian notions of symbolism, since according to the Bible Pi=3. I might actually prefer for that line to run at such an angle that it intersects the enveloping triangle, signifying the revolutionary connection Pandeism establishes between Pantheism and Deism. Blessings!!

Have you threatened your children with eternal damnation today?


This image really struck a chord with me.  When I was a child, I was taught that if you didn’t accept that Jesus died for your sins, you would burn forever in hell.  This indoctrination ran DEEP.
I’ll write out my whole deconversion story someday, but to shorten things up a bit I’ll tell you that I haven’t believed in any type of deity since I was around 24.  However, it took me a LONG time before I was able to say “I am not a Christian.”  Because saying “I am not a Christian” was denying Christ and sending me to eternal damnation.  Even though I KNEW the Bible is a book of myths.  Even though I KNEW that every religion is equal in its “saving power” efficacy.  It took until I was 26 years old to be able to actually say “I am an atheist.  I do not believe in God.  I do not believe in Jesus.  I am not a Christian.”
I am happy to be free of that now… but what a waste to spend so many years of life being afraid of a mythical place.  ~JJ
