Wouldn’t say he’s an atheist

Hey there, I just want to say, I appreciate what you’re doing, this my first time viewing your blog, and i’m really impressed. I love how it’s simply your point of view, no preaching, converting, or otherwise downing other people. I can’t imagine how sometimes frustrating it must be to get all that hate mail. […]

Ex-Xian

Imagine how that looks to a kid in elementary school. After discovering the wonders of the Internet, […]

Please set me straight then. Because I just would rather not be here. I’m tired. I know how this looks, re posting my own desperate pitiful comments for someone to notice, but I don’t care.

Hey there, I love your site!!! I hope you’re still maintaining it. It cracked me up to no end when I found it one day and I’ve showed as many people as I can. Most folks laugh (probably because I’m discerning about who I show it to…). Here’s an idea I had as I was […]

I am an agnostic, for the time being, and trying to convince myself to go atheist. the problem is I was raised Christian (and not just the practice-easter-egg-hunts type of Christian- I went to a Christian school, my dad was an elder, and I held a high place in my youth group…) and am having […]

September 2007

Umm.. I’ve been an atheist for a while. (I like the smaller “a” as opposed to the capped “A”.. I’m not real fond of labels) And I outed myself in the local paper. Some in my family have since black-listed me. Now that I’ve outed myself again.. will I have to put up with even […]
