Why you left your religion.
My father was a lapsed Catholic, my mother a relaxed Protestant. Very little church was forced upon my childhood, but there were definitely pressure applied. A few church picnics, outings, get-togethers, a bit of video games to keep me there...pretty minor compared to many others' gut wrenching stories.
As I gained an appreciation for science and engineering, I read outside of the school's box. Enough stories from other cultural religions and you figure out the Agnostic position; no one has the answer.
Less religious pressure during high school, had a few more conversations with my brilliant, sci-fi raised, science minded father, and I was achieved the Atheist perspective.
The first time I recognized Atheism was my freshman year at community college. A fellow student invited me to pray with his group. I instantly recognize him from the Varsity Volleyball team. I was on the JV team for one year and this guy was the star varsity player.
When I realized he didn't recognize me, I immediately declined. Well entrenched in the Atheist position at this point.

The First Lie

Posted on April 24, 2017 at 12:46pm 11 Comments

Hi there, everyone.

I need to tell you about the first lie.

You are not God.

Seems obvious. I am a human. I live a human life which is fragile and temporary. I have human powers which make me normal among my other humans. Some humans have more powers than others, some less, but we are all human and all humans are equal.

God is incredible! God is everything? God is love...how does that work? God is the greatest ultimate so therefore, God is. God is apart from us;…

Freedom

Posted on April 13, 2017 at 3:07pm 14 Comments

Understanding freedom has only come through the sum total of my entire life of learning crossed by meditation in which I can focus on a single idea and explore it from all sides.

I first learned of freedom through patriotic songs, but I didn’t understand it; I had only taken the first step.

I first declared atheism during my twelfth year of life which freed me from the god concept, but I still didn’t know freedom; I…

World War 2

Posted on March 30, 2017 at 3:30pm 2 Comments

I visited the New Orleans World War 2 museum.

Tough, emotional time learning about the whole event.

As a martial artist and Tai Chi player, I have learned a great deal about combat and theories which function best in said realm. Hitler and Hirohito had the exact same flaw which allowed the allies to defeat their militaries. Both expanded quickly with their respective forces. Spread thin accross so many captured…

American Politic

Posted on February 14, 2017 at 11:08am 2 Comments

Why is America in near constant war?

There is more than one reason.

We like to swagger. We like to sway. It lets us feel the clothes, lets us feel the groove, let us show off a bit. We know we can’t always swagger, but we do it where possible.

The government is run by humans and thus their personal bias bleeds into policy and it makes us sway. When we come to our senses and put in some…
