Exhaustion

I am so tired, so exhausted, by the discussions of atheism vs religion.  Am I supposed to continue from this point in my life to the end of my existence arguing against the obvious?  

God does not exist.  When I was a child, growing up and first realizing that there was a larger world outside my small town, outside my religious fellowship, that did not accept, that frankly was too sophisticated to acknowledge the existence of God...that it was this world I wanted to be a part of, that…

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,…

Stoopid bloody catholics

I've just had an encounter with some doorstepping Jehovah's at my dad's house. I sent them packing with my 'I'm an atheist and I'm not prepared to argue with you' speech. Then as I left the house my aunty (lives next door) and 1 of my cousins were on the step. The cousin (a pain in the arse if ever there was one) started asking about the Jehovah's to which I explained what I said.
