But it's not the usual reasons. Or maybe it is. In reverse. Or whatever.
Mondays are the worst because I'm alone again! The family is home on weekends. Usually we have good weekends. But then comes Monday.
My day so far:
- woke up real early, around four.
- made coffee
- woke the kids up after six.
- went to tell my wife good morning around seven as she got ready for work.
- told the wife and kids goodbye and watched, once again, as they…Continue
What the hell, I have nothing better to do today than speak my mind a bit. I really haven't written anything at all anywhere in a very long time. So here goes...
The biggest problem with humans is that they're so godlessdamned chicken shit. I mean really. When human kind learned to think the first thing he did was recognize danger and he ran like hell. And people are still running. And hiding. It drives me nuts. This is the real reason I just quit and don't really give two…Continue
Oh, well, yeah, I know. But should I tell? Mostly I've been running thither and yon, metaphorically speaking, and sinking into a morass of self pity and morose depression. I have papers to prove it! OK, not really, but sort'of. I keep trying to shake off this damned sense of humor but it just won't go away. I even quit taking my Happy Pills so freely give by the VA and the pissant thing sneaks up on me, like today.
I'm ok if I don't move. If I take my Gabby and…Continue

Our numbers are so few! Even though I hear "more people are 'coming out' all the time," there's still a very tiny number of us. Why is it that we have such a hard time finding people willing to admit to being atheist even when statistics indicate there are millions of us in this country? I have an idea.
Atheism has nothing to offer. We can get all freaky over reason, science, common sense. We can prove religion is wrong all day long. We can invalidate religion until we're blue…Continue
I've been reading a series of books by David Weber called the Safehold series. Weber is an interesting writer. I'm not really a "fan" as in I adore his works and all that but his books do keep one busy. The plot of Safehold is complicated. It begins eight hundred years before the main part of the story gets underway at a time the human race was at war with a race called the Gbaba that was determined to extinguish humanity from the universe. Humanity was loosing the war. As a last ditch…Continue

I've been around the block. Because I have an obsession with knowing things I have learned things I wish I didn't know. Human ignorance and depravity are far deeper than the average person, whose head is stuck firmly in the sand, can even fathom. For every "good thing" there are a thousand opposites. I've learned things I cannot tell any other person for fear it would fuck up their head permanently, as mine has been.
I reject the notion of a creator because of the Hubble Deep…Continue
First of all, I am who I am! I will not, by godlessdamn, be anything other than myself.
Second, I have little to loose. I played the games, faked the faces, but I never could really hide who I am. I became disliked, sometimes ridiculed, very often ignored, but because I have always believed in a few things very strongly, things like ethics and truth, and I stood up for them rather than…Continue
If I were a christian I could pick whatever kind of beliefs I wanted and then choose a church and jump in. I'd have plenty to do. There'd be friends to spend time with.
If I were a christian I could be eccentric or different and still find a niche where I belong.
If i were a christian our house would often be filled with guests, people showing up just to talk, people hanging around when there's trouble, people to listen when I need someone to talk to.
If I were a…Continue
The title of this blog is entirely misleading. But I could not figure out what else to use so there it is. Read on...
I was born with something in my gut, something I'll call a "savior complex," for want of better words. I've never been a bawl-bag of compassion but somewhere deeper inside I've always cared. And I've been cursed with the ability to see people hurting. For some thirty years or so I thought the answer to fixing people's suffering was god. I was stupid, of course,…Continue
I have not quite gotten around to writing a blog here yet, my lethargy and procrastination bites too much lately, but I do have a Wordpress blog I have written a few things on. This morning I posted an excerpt from an old book I wrote. It's a short piece about the Bible. I'll post it here, too, for grins:
