Unsure? Call the crisis in faith hotline

March 02, 2015 By: admin Category: Atheism

Considering atheism? Unsure about your faith? Call 1-184-I-DOUBT-IT.

The 24-hour crisis hotline for those considering leaving their faith is operated byRecovering From Religion, a Kansas City, Mo.-based nonprofit that aids those transitioning out of faith.

When people are reconsidering the role religion plays in their lives, they risk losing their families, their spouses, their jobs, said Sarah Morehead,executive director of Recovering From Religion. These people are isolated, excluded, shunned. It rocks these people to the bottom of their hearts. It is heartbreaking.

Hotline volunteers will not advocate leaving religion for atheism, Kimberly Winston writes for the Religion News Service, but will offer support and resources.

The hotline’s motto is: When faith is on the line, so are we.

1-800-DOUBTS: A new helpline for troubled atheists

March 02, 2015 By: painlord2k Category: Atheism

Story highlights A new helpline is believed to be the first for people suffering from a loss of faith Founded by the group Recovering From Religion, 1-84-I-DOUBT-IT launched on Friday.

Find out what it means to be an atheist — and why you should care — in a one-hour special airing March 24 at 9 p.m. ET on CNN.

He’s been a Christian for 20 years but can’t believe in the Bible anymore. He hasn’t told his friends or family and still sits, uneasy, in church each Sunday.

“I feel like I’m lying,” he tells the woman on the other end of the phone. “I’m pretending to be a person that I’m not.

“But what if I’m wrong?” he asks. “Will I go to hell?”

“Hmmm…” the woman says, after stumbling through an awkward answer. “I thought you weren’t going to make this hard.”

If this call had been real, the woman says, she would have dissuaded the man from falling for Pascal’s Wager, the argument that it’s better to believe in God because — well, hell is an awfully hot place to spend eternity.

But the call wasn’t real. The man and woman are volunteers training for 1-84-I-DOUBT-IT, believed to be the country’s first helpline for people wrestling with religion, suffering from a loss of faith, or confused about why their son or wife seems to have suddenly embraced atheism.

Founded by the group Recovering From Religion and cobbled together with a small budget, the helpline launched on Friday. Nearly 100 volunteers are ready to field calls 24/7 on the weekends and from 6-12 Central Time on weeknights.

Calls will be kept confidential and the callers can remain anonymous, said Sarah Morehead, Recovering From Religion’s executive director. There’s no physical call center; instead volunteers and callers are connected through a virtual private network

'Miraculous' stem cell treatment may reverse symptoms of multiple sclerosis

March 02, 2015 By: Walid Yassin Category: Stem Cell Therapy

A new stem cell treatment that reboots the entire immune system is enabling multiple sclerosis sufferers to walk, run and even dance again, in results branded “miraculous” by doctors.

Patients who have been wheelchair-bound for 10 years have regained the use of their legs in the ground-breaking therapy, while others who were blind can now see again. The treatment is the first to reverse the symptoms of MS, which is incurable, and affects about 100,000 people in Britain.

The two dozen patients who are taking part in the trials at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, and Kings College Hospital, London, have effectively had their immune systems “rebooted”. Although it is unclear what causes MS, some doctors believe that it is the immune system itself that attacks the brain and spinal cord, leading to inflammation pain, disability and, in severe cases, death.

In the new treatment, specialists use a high dose of chemotherapy to knock out the immune system before rebuilding it with stem cells taken from the patient’s own blood. “Since we started treating patients three years ago, some of the results we have seen have been miraculous,” Prof Basil Sharrack, a consultant neurologist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, told The Sunday Times.

“This is not a word I would use lightly, but we have seen profound neurological improvements.” Holly Drewry, 25, of Sheffield, was wheelchair bound after the birth of her daughter Isla, now two. But she claims the new treatment has transformed her life.

“It worked wonders,” she said. “I remember being in the hospital… after three weeks, I called my mum and said: ‘I can stand’. We were all crying. I can run a little bit, I can dance. I love dancing, it is silly but I do. ” However, specialists warn that patients need to be fit to benefit from the new treatment. “This is not a treatment that is suitable for everybody because it is very aggressive and patients need to be quite fit to withstand the effects of the chemotherapy,” warned Prof Sharrack.

The research was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
