"Why do you bother going to the church since you are an atheist? Most preachers are aware that the closest gospel to the time of Jesus was about 40 yrs postmortem. Your attempts to argue with them about human word vs God's word will be in vain.…"

About Me:
I am an atheist, and have been all of my life. I do not think though that it is appropriate to bash religion, neither can we just simply live with it. I am an atheist; my wife is a Christian, which has helped me acquire some balance in this area.

Made Up Stories

I've been talking to my mom about a med change for my wife, and how I can convince the doctors to put her back on certain meds that work. My mom says my dad was given a shot to help him, but it in fact it turns out that it made him really sick and took and month to recover. That next month, the doctor wanted my dad to take another shot. My parents explained to the doctor that the shot had made him sick, like he had had the flu, but the doctor, my mom said, was determined it was the right med…

Make believe

I met with a pastor the other day. It was in response to a critique I sent him of his sermon. I'm sure he's probably never received such a thing:) He was civil and polite though and replied by saying "Thanks for the feedback!" My concern was him preaching that the Bible is the inerrant word of God. Now, I know it is a lot of things and people are real sensitive to it, but the truth is that there are errors, as I have learned from the wonderful evangelical Christian turned atheist, Dr. Bart…

My Christian Wife

It is difficult sometimes for me since I am an atheist and my wife is a devout evangelical Christian. We met 7 years ago Sunday, and she asked me when we first met if I was “saved.” I told her I had been, thinking I was. As it turns out I wasn’t. What happened was one day I went to church with a friend of mine’s mom. At the time I was pretty much homeless and her and her husband were letting me stay with them temporarily. I went to church with my friend’s mom, and at the end of the service…
