THE BIG FAT SURPRISE

Posted on January 27, 2015 at 9:00am 8 Comments

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…

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).

My…

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. Good to be here.

Thank you so much.  I look forward to coming here to get my shot of sanity for the day.  Maybe I am just getting old and grumpy, but it seems as if as the years tick by I am becoming less and less tolerant of ignorance.  Maybe ignorance is too harsh.  I am trying to figure out why ANYONE would voluntarily put themselves in a position of "mental slavery" to something that is not real.  Or anything, real or not real for that matter.  I have spent decades researching world religions (and Christianity more in depth) so I feel I have paid the topic it's due respect.  I have looked at it from every angle I can possibly imagine (including the metaphysical) and I am STILL coming up empty with answers at the age of 43.  Thanks again, I look forward to learning from people of like mind.

Thanks for the welcome. I'm hoping to find some people who might be interested in reading the book (happy to send out a copy).
