Where the hell have I been?

Beats me.

Oh, well, yeah, I know.  But should I tell?  Mostly I've been running thither and yon, metaphorically speaking, and sinking into a morass of self pity and morose depression.  I have papers to prove it!  OK, not really, but sort'of.  I keep trying to shake off this damned sense of humor but it just won't go away.  I even quit taking my Happy Pills so freely give by the VA and the pissant thing sneaks up on me, like today.

I'm ok if I don't move.  If I take my Gabby and…

When we toss our soul, what do we gain?

Our numbers are so few!  Even though I hear "more people are 'coming out' all the time," there's still a very tiny number of us.  Why is it that we have such a hard time finding people willing to admit to being atheist even when statistics indicate there are millions of us in this country?  I have an idea.

Atheism has nothing to offer.  We can get all freaky over reason, science, common sense.  We can prove religion is wrong all day long.  We can invalidate religion until we're blue…

If I Were A Christian...

If I were a christian I could pick whatever kind of beliefs I wanted and then choose a church and jump in.  I'd have plenty to do.  There'd be friends to spend time with. 

If I were a christian I could be eccentric or different and still find a niche where I belong.

Atheism and Child Abuse...not what you think!

The title of this blog is entirely misleading.  But I could not figure out what else to use so there it is.  Read on...

I was born with something in my gut, something I'll call a "savior complex," for want of better words.  I've never been a bawl-bag of compassion but somewhere deeper inside I've always cared.  And I've been cursed with the ability to see people hurting.  For some thirty years or so I thought the answer to fixing people's suffering was god.  I was stupid, of course,…
