"So sorry about your brother-in-law.  According to the inadequate, nearly illegible, police report of the non-investigation of my only son's death last August, he died by suicide.  It could have been murder, but I'll never…"

"Thanks, all, for your support and encouragement. Christians would have a harder time saying we're evil if they would see kindness like yours!"

"Scott, Good suggestion, and the answer is yes. I was a devout Christian for practically all of my life. I was still a believer when we married and was even a lay preacher for our churches. She knows that I know christianity's claims very well."

"Once upon a time I was like your wife. A Catholic (in my case) that was unknowingly more Deist than anything else, while my husband was atheist. I think that reinforcing the ethical beliefs you both share would help deal with the harder parts. Also…"

Mixed marriage needs advice!

Posted on October 12, 2009 at 3:58pm 5 Comments

Last night I asked Faith (my wife) what her current thoughts are regarding her faith stance. She confessed that she didn't really know, but generally still considers herself a Christian even though she thinks Muslims and Jews and others will get into heaven apart from Jesus. I found this very interesting, as you might guess. I asked her how she could still call herself a christian while denying the exclusivity of Jesus as the way to heaven. She didn't know. After a few more equally puzzling… Continue

Less Self-Imposed Suffering for Atheists

Posted on January 8, 2009 at 7:40pm 5 Comments

I posted a note a few days ago about my young brother-in-law who killed him self just this past Saturday. Obviously, emotions are very raw still and I wouldn't dream of saying what I am posting here to any of my family members. My sisters-in-law and their parents are now struggling with exactly where is he NOW? One says he could not possibly be "saved" and so must be in Hell. Another says, he must be being punished by God before he enters Heaven, and others say he must be in Heaven already. How… Continue

Suicide and Immoral Comfort

Posted on January 5, 2009 at 8:43am 8 Comments

My wife's sixteen-year-old brother committed suicide on Saturday night. Apparently, he was upset because his girlfriend wouldn't kiss him and he hated the military school he was in (surely among other things). There is nothing that can prepare you for the horror of such a thing happening to someone really close to you.

Though there is nothing that can prepare you, there are definitely some things which some say in order to offer comfort which makes everything considerably worse! At the top… Continue

Just finished "The Secular Conscience" by Austin Dacey

Posted on August 16, 2008 at 7:17pm 0 Comments

I just finished reading Austin Dacey's The Secular Conscience. I have to say that I think the last couple of chapters are worth the price of the book. Dacey communicates so clearly on a very complex topic and he does a great job, I think, of establishing a case for ethics without god based on reason. I highly recommend it! If you have read it, what did you think?

All the one-sidedness is getting to me!

This is my first blog post here. I've been steaming about something lately, so I guess I will use this opportunity to get it out of my system.

I don't know about other people, but one thing that I absolutely HATE post deconversion is all the xians who want me to read their favorite books or go to certain lectures from supposedly renowned scientists on the truth of creationism, but don't care to look at the same topics from a different perspective than their own. I spent 28 years as a… Continue

Greetings Daniel!
I know that there is already an Atheists group that meets in a former church in Smyrna - and there is a Skeptics in the Pub group that meets at a bar near Little 5 Points, in Atlanta.
Thus far, I have resisted joining any groups, as I have met some of the folks that are a part of the Skeptics in the Pub group and they are way too politically correct for me.
In fact, I was called a 'bigot' by one such fellow whom I met at the TAM6 meeting (summer of 2008) in Vegas. That kind of crap I can do without.....

Unfortunately I have not read Parenting beyond belief although
I do own a copy. Between working and running a family/household, sometimes reading gets put on a back burner.
I do plan to read it.
Raising my kids has always stemmed from an internal compass.
Im sure that is a natural instinct for most parents.
Sometimes just taking what we learn as adults can be explained
to our kids at their level.
I am open to other resources as well.
Good luck and enjoy every moment with your four. They
grow up so fast.
