THE BIG FAT SURPRISE

For nearly all my adult years (>50),  I've been told to eat what was recommended to be the most healthy foods and avoid the "bad guys". No to whole milk. No butter. No red meats. No eggs. White poultry meat only. Eat lots of grains and carbohydrates.We've been duped into believing that eating fat makes you fat, and that a high fat diet increases cholesterol numbers which in turn leads to heart diseases. No proof, just common sense. For 50 years the American Academy of Pediatrics has insisted…See More

Happily retired science teacher. Enjoy being outdoors, gardening, golfing, exploring. Do service work with Wilderness Volunteers and Sierra Club. Enjoy being indoors to read, play piano, cook and eat! Life is good being an atheist.

Baseball: Yawn

Posted on October 30, 2014 at 7:28am 1 Comment

I tried, really tried, to watch most of the World Series. After all, it's supposedly the national pasttime, whatever that means. Hot dogs, apple pie, and all that jazz. But, my goodness, it's paint-drying boring. 

For evidence as to how much I cared, in a one run game, last night, I went to bed after 8 innings. Like the last 2 minutes of a football game, I figured it would take at least 45 minutes to finish the game. Besides, my team (K.C., in this case) usually loses (witness Chi…

The Life of a Non-conformist

Posted on October 7, 2014 at 8:15am 11 Comments

While short of being referred to as a curmudgeon, it's been called to my attention that I'm a non-conformist. Naturally, most atheists are categorized as evil non-c's. In a sense, we're rebels.

I've never thought of myself as any one of those. It's not on purpose that I'm "different". Perhaps, it's just a part of my personality. I can blame it on genetic predisposition or something, but I won't. That's not fair to my parents (both believers in god, by the way).

Life is Good

Posted on September 23, 2014 at 7:34am 9 Comments

This post has nothing to do with religion (or lack thereof), politics, or anything controversial. I'm not hawking a book, pushing a cause, or bragging about my golf score.



What this blog IS about is simply a statement of happiness, satisfaction, and contentment with my life.



I'm one of the lucky ones. No, I'm not "blessed". I don't "thank god". I'm just fortunate, that's all.



My life at the moment is good. Actually, it's always been good (Okay, 95% good). I'm… Continue

Thanks for the welcome, Randall. There are actually lots of ex-pastors, I was completely taken by surprised. I'm in another online group with about 600 ex-pastors turned atheist/agnostic. So, yes, lots of hope!
