My Religious God
Died In Vietnam
Kenneth Ray Whitley
I would like to have free samples of "Positive Atheism." I'm new here on the net. I feel as though I'm a positive atheist already but it never hurts to read others opinions of one's own belief system. I'm a Vietnam chopper pilot veteran and world traveler that came to his atheism by observing what he's seen around our planet. My religious God died in Vietnam and I realized it quite clearly at that time. I thought, in 1969, my personal God was killed by the war but I returned home later and eventually searched the WALL for His name. It wasn't there but that never meant, for a second, that I thought He was still alive. I've never spent the night in jail or had policemen called to my person. I don't rob banks or rape little girls. I'm a moral sort that tries to please the God I no longer believe in.
I'm looking forward to reading said materials.
