Cass Midgley earned his Masters in Theological Studies from Vanderbilt in 2013 as an atheist.
In 2004, at age 38, he left the church and began thinking and reading things he would not allow himself to while in the Christian Matrix. He took the red pill. All those "dark night of the soul" experiences were glimpses into reality, not confusion from the devil. Once he let himself admit there was no Adam and Eve, it was the thread that, over the next 10 years, unraveled his theology completely. Today, he looks squarely in the face of life's absurdity and meaninglessness and says "yes" to it . With zero extant meaning in the universe, he has released all expectation and/or hope that life is in any way "good" and thereby finds it to be surprisingly and ironically beautiful. He purports atheism and even nihilism to be the best practice of theism.
Cass is a Humanist Chaplain who performs non-religious weddings for all genders and orientations. He counsels students on the Vanderbilt campus as the Staff Adviser to the Secular Student Alliance. He is a para-legal specializing in Qualified Domestic Relations Orders. He is married to his wife of 29 years; they have 4 young adult children.
