"sometimes, I just miss the crutches"

This is an answer I gave to a friend who wrote to me, "sometimes, I just miss the crutches". 

Of course you miss the experiences you had as a christian. There was community, music, probably some fun and games, Interesting stories, probably made interesting because they were myths. We all enjoy a good myth, especially if it involved murdering thy neighbor or bashing babies heads against the stone walls, or thrusting a sword through the bellies of babies or pregnant mothers. 

OH!…

Paradise Lost?

Let me begin by saying there are many blogs on this site that deal with the topics of religion and atheism in a serious and insightful manner...this is not one of those blogs.

When it comes to art, literature and music I have no problem with the idea of poetic license. Metaphors, symbolism and wild flights of fancy...no problem..in art. However, when someone claims that the story they are telling me is historic fact, then the literal and practical…

Bible verses religious people don't mention or preach about + art for the verses

Have you all checked out "Awkward Moments Children's Bible" yet? It's an Amazon award-winning book and concept. No, I don't own shares of this book or are related to it's creators but I really, really LOVE the whole concept asnd I often share the illustrations on my Facebook page. I'd like to see the author put the art+verse on the backs of T-shirts (large design so easily read) as I'd proudly wear that in public to get people to think - I'd even purposedly stand in lines and position myself…

Old Warehouse

This started out as free writing but turned into something.

"Do you have it?" Red said.
"Yes." William answered, lifting a large duffel bag.
"Where did you find it?"
"Does it matter?"
"Yes."
"Well I prefer to keep that a secret. Do you have the money?"

Make your own creation myth

This is somethimg I thought would be interesting: Write a creation myth. It doesn't have to be the creation of this world it can be the creation of a fantasy world, alien world, etc. You can have one god, many gods or no gods.





Heres one for a story idea I had that would probably be allot better off as a game scrip.





In the beginning there was only void and from the void came Phoenix and Lóng. Phoenix and Lóng battled, from their battle came Air,…

A young skeptic.

I being somewhat a skeptic since very young. Although my mother is catholic, she's a 'light' catholic, in the sense that she thinks that there is a god, but he hardly has something to do with the universe we live in; she's something I like to see as a catholic-colored pantheist. My father, in analogy, would be a catholic-colored agnostic, he finds comfort in the idea and is attached to the festivities, but not very religious by himself.



There is a story told by my mother that, I… Continue

How To Come Out As An Atheist

I look at my search engine results quite a bit and have noticed that several people find my blog by typing in the phrase, “How to come out as an atheist” so I’ve decided to write a bit from my own experience for those who are seeking inspiration.



Step One: Realize you’re an atheist. This may seem to be a given but for the longest time people will have the knowledge that they don’t believe in a god and still label themselves otherwise. You’re an atheist. If you can’t share this with… Continue

It’s Okay to believe there may be a God?

You may be a declared atheist maybe a weak atheist like me, but I am sure at times you wonder if you got it all wrong. What if a God or Gods really do exists yes I am sure at times you may wonder and lets be honest about it, its at times when we think of dying.







I often lay in bed wondering what if I got it all wrong but then the hard facts come to mind about my path to atheism which was due to reading the holy text, well at least those that originated from the Middle… Continue
