Memorial Day has passed…

I haven't ever really observed Memorial Day before. I have not maligned it nor just disregarded it, but I have never stopped and given the time to make remembrance. This year was especially hard for me. I went perusing through the military pages on facebook, typically filled with humor, insults, derogatory comments, veterans and active throwing jabs at one another...but not a single one was playing on that day. All the pages had were updates with pictures of the fallen. It was rough on me. I … [Read more...]

In the news Recently there has been a media flurry surrounding Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

Most everyone I interact with back home are all believers and still attend church. I still seem to be the exception to that rule. Nonetheless, I had a very good conversation with my father-in-law that was quite interesting to me. My wife's family are all progressive Christians and in fact have schooled me time and again on some … [Read more...]

I always see these very interesting arguments about vaccines causing autism. Now as a brand new father with a young daughter this is of great concern to me. So I've decided to delve into the research. I suggest all of you do the same. Let's explore together shall we? Jenny McCarthy says that her son has … [Read more...]

Weekend

Gonna be a busy weekend for me. I'll try and keep some posts coming. I'm writing something about Elder Scrolls and my undying love for that video game series. Oh and probably another something about how god isn't real. I do want to see that "Gods not dead" movie. Any suggestions on an atheist tee shirt to wear when I go see movies like that? If you want to donate me a funny atheist t that'll work. All I've got are JREF shirts. ;) … [Read more...]
