Hey everyone. I go by "Beyonder" for now as I'm still figuring out my place in the world as a "closeted" agnostic atheist. The reason is that I'm married to a conservative Christian whom I have not told about my loss of belief in the supernatural or its associated dogma. I'm not sure how she'll take it. My parents are also pretty conservative Christians as well. Let's just say most of the people I've associated with in life are believers.

I've been blogging about my thoughts and experiences at http://beyondbelief.blog.com and would love for you to read and/or subscribe if you can.

If you have any advice on "coming out" as an agnostic atheist, that'd be great. Thanks!

Hey. I send holiday cards to both religious and non-religious friends. On of my cards are religious and even may barely religious wife knows enough to buy very generic stuff.
That would be ....None of my cards are religious... And ...even my barely religious....

That's SO not true Blaine, here on TA, you have lots of friends, among whom, I'm happy to count myself --

Now where's my card?

Nothing like coming home to another cackle... nice one, Blaine!

And Happy Holidays to you too, Blaine!(With special thanks to Strega!)

Read yesterdays blog post. Glad it went well with your wife! That's how it should be.

Get drunk. That's how I told my Grandma. I was like "Gramma look. You were born in the 30's. Mkay? Superman wasn't even invented yet. John Wayne an' Charlton Heston at the okay corral... The kkk was in the white house! I don't have to take this from you. I'm the future!"

Maybe practice it a few times first. But the next day, everybody will know the score.

Also,

Just sayin.

I don't know what this is referring to.

It's The Beyonder. A character from Marvel comics, a cosmic being who (as I remember it) basically shows up, gets eerily existential, and makes people fight for his amusement. Or something.

Well what do you know?! I had never heard of him before now. Strangely ironic that I took on that pseudonym seeing what he was all about.

Maybe God did it to send me a message ...

NAH!
