Not many people ever find one much less the other; in fact, what they tend to do is settle or agree to strive no more, which, in my opinion, is the same as giving up. There are few things in this world worthy of one’s life or dedicated energy, but if there is one it is either love or happiness.

As with any new thing in one's life, there is a honeymoon period where everything is perfect and life is better than it has ever been. Now consider that I came to Atheism on my own and with little or no persuasion. It took me years of becoming displeased with Christian morality, or the lack there of, before I was willing to accept foreign ideas. My family and identity was so entangled with faith that I feared I would be set outside the fold. To date, I have had very mixed reactions. I… Continue

In Canada, a Senate page has lost her job after staging a controversial demonstration on the floor of the governing body. Brigette DePape, 21, staged an unprecedented protest by walking onto the Senate floor Friday carrying a sign that read, “Stop Harper,” referencing Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Following her removal from her job, DePape called for a Canadian version of the Arab Spring movement that has swept through the Middle East and North…

Religion easily has the best bullshit story of all time. Think about it.
Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky.
He watches everything you do every minute of every day.
And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do.
And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream,… Continue

I haven't blogged here in a while and this one won't be like my previous posts, but I've thought about writing this for a while now.
Today is exactly one year since I met my future husband in the chat room on this very site! This has been the best year of my life. I have never met anyone who inspires me to be more creative and makes me happier. He's also a damn good rational thinker!
There have been quite a few hurdles to get past, the biggest… Continue

A universal sentiment for atheists and believers alike.
My mother died suddenly and unexpectedly last month. She died from what appears to have been a massive stroke. She had just seen a doctor, and while she had a few relatively minor health issues (as many 50-somethings do), she had just seen a doctor… Continue

It is in a way, my own Manifesto.
I believe --
.... that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.
I believe --
....that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
I believe --…

I can't believe I never noticed this before. Apparently, you can't spell evolution without "love." If you move the letters around you can also spell "unite" and "live." There are probably a lot of words you can spell out of evolution (even "evil!") but I don't have time to find them all. Word play is fun!
Love is blind. Evolution is blind. Therefore...

Even motivational speakers can be stricken with bouts of insecurity and Burke is no different. Love Happens’ flat main characters are almost saved by complex and well portrayed secondary characters who steal the scenes whenever they are on screen.
After the death of his wife, Burke (Aaron Eckhart) shares his grief with other people who have lost their loved ones by creating a self help program called A-Okay! While traveling to Seattle for a conference, he meets the beautiful and… Continue

I love our government! The federal system - I pay lots of taxes, have an off-reservation business, and never really minded even though I knew they spent a lot on their little toys - but the shiny buttons and uniforms were nice. Continue
So the old ones like me, we still sit and smoke our pipes in the lodges... and we always approved as the young people sometimes went and got shiny uniforms, and we paid this tax with solemn dignity - as it was only money.

I Am Pagan.
As a Pagan I celebrate life, the earth, and I honor the Divine in the form of a goddess and a god. I am what is called "Solitary Eclectic Pagan." I do not follow any one tradition. I work with different deities from different pantheons and from other pathes.
As a Pagan I have my own beliefs and my own ways, and I have my own path to follow. I know longer walk the path that someone else have walked.
As a Pagan I respect Nature. I believe in the Triple Goddess of the… Continue

(Originally posted on my personal blog, BrainlessGeorge.com
I stand firm with my thoughts on Darwinian Natural Selection. I’m quite sure that it has happened in humans in even recorded history. I think that the technological advances, and forms of entertainment, all have implications of evoluation. Since the dawn of man we’ve been evolving and furthering our thinking.
To better survive in an ever changing… Continue

The death-like frigid air
sharpens its blades upon your sputtering lungs
having burrowed its way through twin nasal cavities
it crystallizes your breaths from the inside out.
Suffocating your zephyr with its own,
upon exhale, your life visibly evaporates before you.
And so it was with us that in defense of this nipping assault
with hands split and fractured like dried up ravines
we struggled to even adjust our wooly scarves over each others chapped… Continue

I was doing brainstorming exercises today for a piece that I'm working on and I couldn't turn off my brain. Hehe.
I was writing a mail to a friend and I lapsed into free-hand while trying to describe Brent. I decided to let it all leak out and blog that portion of it. You can notice how it turned from email to free-hand.
I doubt that there is a kinder person on the planet. He gives and gives and gives and would never ask for anything.… Continue

I'm heading back to school in.....5 days.
I'm looking forward to this because: I'll be getting away from the family once more.
I'm NOT looking forward to this because: I'll be 320 miles away from the love of my life for nearly 9-10 months.
Yes, I know I can come for visits, but it's not the same. I want to be here, with her, living with her, loving her, and all that sappy stuff. -sighs- She's willing to put up with me, so I guess I shouldn't… Continue
