Many adults, especially past the age of 40, seem to have gone beyond the point of no return with religion. They have spent so much time, energy, money, family ties, personal development and emotional/spiritual stock in their religion that it would be too difficult and too far of a journey to turn the other way, … More Point of No Return
I’ve been trapped in the rat race, wearing a mask and herding with all of the other American sheep, trying my hardest to break out of the canned, fake, and lifeless system that is middle class suburbia – and still provide for my family. I’ll get back to blogging as soon as possible, because this … More I’m Still Here
I am getting tired of condescending, patronizing, and manipulative Christians conceding the validity of science in order to make themselves more credible when arguing religion. It is tiresome, an obvious sales tactic, and a waste of time. If they really, truly accepted the implications of what we learn just from cosmology and biology, there is no way … More Christians and Science

And how does this guy know God’s plan? God gets a … More Quote from School Shooting Article
I get this a lot from Christians with whom I dialogue regarding religion. This statement presupposes that God can find me (and someone powerful enough to create such a complex universe should be able to locate one of his children and talk to him/her) and chooses not to find me. He is currently allowing me to wallow … More “I Pray God/Jesus Finds You”
