I have several friends on Facebook who are devout Christians and will occasionally post statuses reflecting such. This one was posted not too long ago, copied verbatim: I am proud of Gov. Perry in…Continue
The passage on the mark of Cain. Genesis 4:8-16 (KJV):8And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew…Continue
I went through this forum looking for a post on reincarnation. Since I didn't find one I thought I'd pose this question to my fellow atheists:What are your thoughts on the Eastern belief in…Continue
I'm happy I found an online community for non-religion. I don't have very many secular/atheist friends IRL, and telling the people in my life about my non-belief will likely cause a torch and…Continue

My last blog post talked about my job in corrections. Well, training in October didn't happen. Actually, I didn't go to my Basic Correctional Officer Training class until December. So I spent 2 months at the prison in my cadet uniform, learning everything I could and watching how things ran.
Training took place in Forsyth for 5 weeks, essentially all of December. My birthday was celebrated at training, turned 25 training to be a CO. I passed the gun range, got my ass kicked in PT,…Continue

I spent much of my childhood in various foster homes. I won't go into detail about the whys of it, just know I was in roughly 4 homes. Each foster family boasted of being a "loving, Christian home". But while in their care I suffered physical and emotional abuse, neglect, and flat out rejection because I wasn't their kid. I felt like an outsider, and I had no one…Continue
A few of my posts on this site have revolved around my mother's nonacceptance of my Atheism. Suffice it to say, she and I have a complicated relationship. Mental illness runs in the family, specifically Bi-polar Disorder, which my mother is medicated and in therapy for. Since I've rejected religion and pursued a more logical way of thinking, I've noticed a role reversal. I feel like more of an adult, whereas my mother seems to be more childish.
Anyway, I'm getting…Continue
