Firm atheist shaken by science, eating disorders


Decidedly “100% atheist,” Mariah Jones pitied Christians, believing they reject reason and the advancements of scientific knowledge.

“I did not believe in God,” Mariah says on a 2019 video on her YouTube channel. “I didn’t believe in spirituality at all. I thought believing in such things was silly. Basically I was just a strong believer in science.”

Right after high school, Mariah joined the Navy in 2013. It was in the Navy that she developed anorexia and bulimia.

“It grew more and more aggressive as the years went by,” she says.

Once out of the Navy, she enrolled in college, and she positively relished the science classes which at first affirmed her belief in nothing.

“I used to enjoy when people would bring up God so that I could try and destroy their argument with science.” she admits. “I would ask them impossible questions that would put them in this awkward position and make it pretty much impossible for them to answer.

“I hated when people would talk about Jesus.”

Her distaste for Christianity was extreme, fueled by the grip of the evil one in her life.

“My mentality towards Christians and anyone who was religious was like, You’re wasting your entire life trying to live by these impossible standards and these rules that supposedly God created just to go to a place after you die,” she says. “I thought religion was a man-made construct that was harmful to people.”

Then a boomerang struck in 2017 in her second year in college. The same science that in the first year of college affirmed her atheist became the science of the second year of college that undermined her atheism.

Specifically, how could biological molecules with astronomical number of atoms all sequenced with confunding minute precision have just come together by chance? she wondered.

So at first science contributed to her atheistic arrogance. Then, as the classes advanced, they deconstructed it.

“Having to accept that everything just formed on its own by itself on accident, it didn’t make sense to me,” Mariah admits. “It really started to bother me because deep down I didn’t want to believe something. I didn’t want to take that responsibility.”

  1. so, your argument is that someone who is ignorant becoming a Christian should be considered important. Since people who are similarly ignorant also become Muslims, Mormons, JWs, Christians who don’t agree with your version, does this mean those religions are true too?

    Funny how they never came together by “chance”. They came together with the laws of physics. And gee, those molecules, which I’m sure you mean DNA, fail often, so you have a problem, that if your god is the “designer” it was incompetent. So, which is it? An incompetent god or a universe that goes by evolution and isn’t perfect? Your choice.

    • How did they FIRST come together to create the first living thing? Where did the laws come from?

      • the laws of physics dear, no god needed or shown to exist. It’s always fun to see various theists make claims usign the same arguments, but not believing each other. Alas, even Christians don’t believe in the same god, so you do have a problem, MS, when it comes to claiming your god is some perfect creator. It is shown to be quite a bit less than supposedly perfect and shown to be less than real.

        So, which is it? An incompetent god or a universe that goes by evolution and isn’t perfect? Your choice.

        • not sure why atheists always resort to the either/or fallacy. Ok, you mention the law of physics. Great. You have the law of entropy, which basically means you would never get the atoms together in precise long molecules needed by the simplest life form.

          • because you have no evidence for your verison of the Christian god, dear. Yep, we have the laws of physics. Now, what is the supposed “law of entropy”? Explain that.

            Now, I’m going to guess that you are trying the typical Christian lie about the second law of thermodynamics. Alas for you, we don’t have a closed system, and it gets energy into it from the sun.

            As usual, the Christian is ignorant about basic science and is too scared to actually learn about it, since it will show that he isn’t as special as he would like to pretend.

              • No, this is my answer:

                I’ve asked a question. Will you answer it? Can you show my points are wrong?
