I bought a bible today ....

I will explain. I am almost 35years old and my mother is 54 today, unfortunately not only is it her birthday but is also but the one year anniversary of the day we buried my father.

My real honest-to-goodness atheist blog

I now sympathize with all those people who venture to talk about atheism, and discover they have nothing to say. I have just become one of them.



I considered discussing atheism in http://zheshiwoying.blogspot.com/ . That's my parenting/adoption blog, and while I have tons to say about parenting and adoption, my audience there is varied and probably not interested in frank discussions about irreligion. (I need more atheist readers there. I… Continue

part you fear desertion,…

Atheist Perspective On Death

I wrote an article describing what I believe are what the majority of atheists think about death and what happens to both our conscience and our bodies after death and how this view of death affects the way we view life. Of course I can't speak for all atheists so I'm curious what you guys think. I especially welcome the spiritual atheists because you guys should have some interesting thoughts. This was my first post in my first blog so any constructive criticism is also welcome!

I Get Philophical on Long Rainy Weekends...

...drink a few beers and ponder the existence of Sun.



"Show me the evidence!" I say, thumping the table with my fist for emphasis, "Show me the e-v-i-d-e-n-c-e!" I shared this sentiment with the men at work, and they all agreed. "Yeah, where the hell's it at?" "I haven't seen it in a while." "Does it even exist?"



The Sun came out yesterday.



I was standing atop a 30-foot pipe bridge when He burst upon us in all His Glory. "I believe!" I cried, throwing my hands…

TN gubernatorial candidates' stances on evolution

A new website sponsored by the Tennessee Newspaper Network makes easy work of comparing the current gubernatorial candidates' positions on various issues. Each candidate presents a different opinion on the subject which is a welcome departure from the typical party-lines talking points that tend to dominate discussion.
