The Crisp Sounds Of Reality

Life for so many people by default is living in a fairytale. They were raised to believe in majestic, almighty deities or spirits that will help guide them through life and the afterlife. They don't…Continue

A while ago my sister went on one of her rants about how she perceives the world. She calls things like fire, water, earth, air, light, and dark, "elements". We who are familiar with elements in…Continue

My Life As A College Student.

Hey there guys.I'm going to give some updates on how I'm doing in college and the changes made in my life. This is my 8th week coming up and this is my progress so far. The Ups- I drive myself to school everyday. I have joined the Secular Student Alliance and Spectrum (LGBT group) and have attended some meetings of each. I have met some very nice people that are easy to get along with. I can stay out later. I can run my own personal errands. I have been able to maintain OK grades.The Downs-…See More

Why you left your religion.
Basically I wasn't very religious to begin with. I lost faith completely around 14-15 years old. I may not know if there is a god, but I'm willing to take a stand against religion in a firm manner. I believe it is a man-made disguise to pressure unnecessary conformity and boundaries between us as human beings. Most of the world may not see it that way, but I do...

Well I wanted too stay in touch with people interested in the project so I could send a private link to it when's it's finished. The films I make are for communities like this one.

Well I really think this film will be for you then. The film is quite open but it doesn't let any religious bs sway it. I'll send you a link to it when it's done. Which should be just a couple months from now.

Ari, when kids grow up in violent homes, their behavior doesn't always comply with either logic or morality. I didn't mess up anyone's home; I stole a paperback book. My two brothers also briefly engaged in petty crime. None of us got caught and we all gave up crime.

When North Korea invaded South Korea, the U.S. government sent me to fight in the resulting war. The GI Bill made college possible and may have saved me from a life of crime.
