Delusional Mom

I haven't dated anyone in a year or so. Maybe this is causing my mom to think my gay is over or something. But really I doubt it, she's just totally delusional. This isn't the first time her or anyone in my family has made comments like this. Ok so..

Me: *waves a hand at the open door and says "smoky" because the neighbor is burning leaves again*

Mom: Wha'?

Me: It's smoky. Can I close the door?

Mom: Hahaha! I thought there was some guy out there and you were saying oooh… Continue

Tything/church is not charity

I sometimes pick up christian magazines that my parents have laying around the house and flip through, reading any articles that seem interesting (know your enemy, right? ha.) and December's issue of Christianity Today has a depiction of Scrooge on it, hoarding his money. The article is something like "Christian Scrooges, why people aren't tything more". Right away I said out loud, "What does Scrooge have to do with tything? That doesn't make any sense." Sister is behind me making Oreo balls… Continue

jungle missionaries and babies

It seems to me when I hear people debate certain topics of the Christian religion that people don't know how Christians justify certain things. Thought I'd mention it just to educate anyone who might want to debate certain points.

They believe that anyone believing in another religion will go to hell, as we well know. Now this brings up the subject of people in remote parts of this world who have never heard of Christianity or if they have they don't really know what it's about. How do… Continue

I love cookies!

I really love chocolate chip cookies. I always have. They make me feel orgasmic and yes, pleasantly fucked in the brain.

Back in the nexus

My computer was broken there for a while but my dad fixed it without much problem. But then he took forever to bring it back to me. I get my procrastination problem from him I think. I missed the nexus!

On fanatics

The opposite of the religious fanatic is not the fanatical atheist but the gentle cynic who cares not whether there is a god or not.

Phineas Gage and Psychopaths and Mom

I don't know why I allow this stuff to bother me but whatever, I do. At the same time that I wish I could shrug it off I feel like it would be morally wrong to be unbothered by stupidity.

Sitting around with my mom and she's flipping channels, falls on a few minutes of a show on an educational channel about the brains of psychopaths. They logically know what is right and wrong but are unable to feel what we would call a conscience because they lack communication between two parts of the… Continue

A biblical argument for gay marriage?

Owe no one anything except to love one
another, for he who loves another
has fulfilled the law."

Obsessively Atheist

Atheism has been my constant obsession for some time now. I have become increasingly aware of how unhealthy my obsession with atheism and religion has become. I literally think about these subjects all day long every day of the week. In my car I stress myself out having arguments with non-existent Christians in my head. I do the same thing when I'm trying to sleep. I spend an embarrassing amount of time reading atheist blogs and watching atheist videos online. I don't think I can focus on any… Continue

More family fun email

Got another crazy email. This time from my dad. It's a rant about "intellectuals", claiming that Obama isn't one, that those who are read the classics, and that intellectuals enabled Hitler. Why is it they always bring up Hitler? Why?

My reply:

Intellectual is a pretty broad term. I would think a politician would need to be an "intellectual" in the area of history, government, economics, human nature,… Continue

No more current events! I've had it!

I've given myself such a massive overdose of the news in the past couple of months that I feel like my brain has a mind of its own, constantly debating this and that issue with nonexistent opponents. Up until I forced myself to start paying attention so that I would be an informed voter (and actually watched and paid attention to debates for the first time in my young life) I never, ever kept up with any sort of news and avoided tv mainstream media like the plague, forcing others to turn it off… Continue

Elation and sadness

Last night I was pretty excited and happy about Obama being elected ... this morning I realized gay marriage was being banned again. I can only imagine how the gay spouses in Cali feel right now because I'm single and I feel devastated. I don't even live in Cali. Maybe it's because I'm hormonal but I've been trying not to cry over it all day long. Fact is, it's personal. My feelings feel personally hurt. I'm tired of my deeply personal romantic life being speculated upon and denied validation… Continue

FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY

My mom sent me this email. I laughed and then sighed.



FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY



In Florida, an atheist created a case against the Easter & Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews & observances of their holy days. The argument was, it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized day(s). The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer,the judge… Continue

Abortion and little brothers





I just love this place because it gives me somewhere to post about what I have to deal with in my family. My brother who is younger than me by two years posted the following in his facebook along with a really gruesome picture of a bloody, fully formed baby. I posted a calm comment on it, ending in 'I love you!' but really I was nearly shaking with disgust. I would like to educate him on the… Continue

Is your reservation in eternity smoking or nonsmoking?

Cutesy little sayings on church signs irritate the hell out of me. I'm so very unbearably tempted to sneak around in the middle of the night changing them around to say something smart assed.

My mom and I were passing a church on the way back from work today and although I usually avoid making any comments about anything religion-related around my family I said something like, "I'm sorry but those church signs with smart little sayings on them irritate the crap outta me." Her response? "Me… Continue

"I have learned that death is scary and that means that I can enjoy life."

I'm about to move about an hour away where I got a job that provides a little apartment for free. I hauled a box out of my closet that contains about twenty journals that I've kept since I was a kid. I couldn't resist pulling them out and reading them and now I'm wasting my time on it when I should be packing. Anyway. This page made me smile. I wrote it right after deconverting. I was about nineteen years old.



Previously I stated that "I have learned that death is scary and that… Continue
