RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Your thoughts on God?

What are your thoughts on god. I was raised in a baptist household and hated going to church I still go but not so often. I am agnostic I need some proof to change my views on god. Even if he was real I think he is unfair. There are alot of problems in this world and he made alot of them.I also think it is unfair that we must live to his standards. Fuck that I am not here to please him or anyone else I am here to please myself and noone else. So what about you all?

I can see why you would think that. I am leaning more towards being an atheist every day.

Yes his "Morals piss me off" I mean why should we live up to him it's our life. And if you don't live like he thinks you should then fuck you your going to hell. What a great man.

RE: Your thoughts on God?

Most people assume that there's a god, but more specifically their god. And they can somehow name all the attributes of their god: What he "looks" like, where he's located, what he wants/doesn't want, ETC. But how could someone know these things? Especially when they have no evidence to support their claims. And the best part about all this is that their are hundreds of religions, and some (if not most) serious members of each religion sprout that their god is real. And many of these religions debate and argue amongst themselves over who's correct without end.

"Fuck all of that", I say. Until you can provide proof that there is a god or gods, its attributes, and what he/she/it/they want out of us, I'm not believing in any deity, no matter how sure you "think" he, she or it is really there.

So yeah. I'm like an ignostic atheist.

RE: Your thoughts on God?

What I meant to say was that "god" is not defined well enough for me to give a shit.

Same goes for people who are "spiritual". wtf does that mean, 'tard.

The bible is nonsense. It doesn't explain anything either.

RE: Your thoughts on God?

If, for some odd, unimaginable reason, God does exist, it is a cretin. It is homophobic, bipolar, hypocritical, immature, and sadistic. If you care about your children so much, then why do you allow the wealthy to reign over the lower classes, allow child abuse, and the continuation of the lunacy of your followers?

While I don't believe in the existence of God or Satan, I believe that Satan was the good guy. He just voiced his opinion on things, and was slandered by his creator unjustly, just for thinking independently, and rising up against God's arrogance.

If you're reading this, I killed myself.

RE: Your thoughts on God?

Now that I think about it, most of conspiracy shit in some or another way concerns religion, pro-god and anti-satan, thank god(Wrote it unintentionally.) I stopped watching all this conspiracy shit. Biggrin

I don't believe in god or satan myself, main reason is that bible/god was used to describe and explain whatever science explains nowadays.


And bible, are you kidding me? Wrote for 1.5k years by a shitload of people who ate shrooms or some similiar stuff...

Or aliens, which is way more believable than an invisible almighty bastard who doesn't care about you unless you spend all your life praying to him for no obvious reason or benefit rather than fake peace of mind.

I am an atheist, as I see no good reason to believe in him. If there does happen to be a god, then I believe that he probably doesn't give much of a shit about us, especially on a personal level.
