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

The Parthenon Enigma

Posted on July 6, 2014 at 7:45am 4 Comments

8 months ago (Oct. 2013) I was gazing at the wondrous spectacle known as the Parthenon sitting atop the Acropolis hill in Athens, Greece. I roamed the sites and toured the amazing museum. I tried to appreciate what I was seeing, but my lack of Greek history and culture limited my ability to comprehend it all--that is, until I read The Parthenon Enigma by Joan Breton Connelly.

Anybody that's ever seen the Parthenon should read this book.…

I've thought the very same thing myself many times.  HA!  There are a few of us here, though.

Thanks, Randall. Sorry to take so long to get back to you.

Yep, the book's title is actually WHAT IF I'M AN ATHEIST?, with a question mark. My mistake.

Thankyou! I'm originally from Rhode Island, but I've been in Michigan for about six years now.

I'm into history and there's not a whole lot of it around here.  I was part of a group that found the oldest white settlement in our county: Fort LeDoux.  However, at the oldest, it's a little over a hundred fifty years.  We do have really great weather here, Canon (Canyon) City boasts three hundred fifty days of sunshine a year.  Even if it was bleak and miserable, legalized bud makes all things bearable!

Hi Randall, sorry I have been busy. Thank you for welcoming me. I am looking forward to great time and learning here.
