"Agreed, I don't want to make any big deal out of anything.  This is just who I am, and I'm at the point that I can say that with no shame, even to family.  How they respond is outside my sphere of influence.   And Heather,…"

"Wow, this really makes me feel something I can't quite describe. When I wrote my blog on the Atheist Debt I had hoped to maybe offer a little motivation to others, but you don't often get any real feedback on these things. Seeing you cite…"

Grow Up, and Stand Up

Recently I read these two posts on TA and they hit home with me:The Atheist DebtStop Lurking and Start Speaking UpAll of us who are thinking freely and have thrown off religion owe a debt to those who came before. I probably would not be an atheist if I hadn't read a Christopher Hitchens book, one which made me realize that it is possible (and moral) to point out that the emperor has no clothes. Before this, I…See More

"I am basically Libertarian. Libertarians are fiscally conservative but socially liberal. They are constituationalists (separation of church and state would be something they believe in). But recently I've noticed them getting friendlier…"

"Thanks for the comment, Heather.  I suppose my hardest problem is family; my mother in particular is a fundie and thinks I need to be saved, and yet she avoids conflict, which means she won't talk.  I hate that.  I want things…"

"You have a right to demand respect for your beliefs and to demand it from your friends, family and coworkers. Its a two way street. Maybe remind them that "Due onto others..." is very true. If they aren't going to respect your beliefs…"

Coping Skills?

Posted on February 15, 2011 at 11:48pm 4 Comments

Maybe it's just my perception, but it sure seems that recently religion is getting pushed into my life (and home, and work, ...) more and more. Or perhaps my awareness of it is going up. I would consider this a good thing (increased awareness is good, regardless of topic) but I'm finding it more difficult to cope.

Just a few examples:

I've hinted to my mother (but only gently, because I'm not yet ready to catch those pieces) that I'm an atheist. And yet she sent me a holiday card…

My wife and I have been watching astronomy documentaries on Netflix recently. I find it really enjoyable, because it takes scientific topics and makes them very real. Will time ever end? How did the planets form? Is there life out there? Could there be life next door (maybe even on Io?) The universe, and the science we use to try to model and comprehend it, is awe inspiring.

This, then, reminds me of some of my favorite quotes by Carl Sagan:

Condescendence

A little bit of holiday reflection, if you will allow.

Due to a bizarre sequence of events, I live in Utah. I originally came from the "Bible belt", but even so, Utah was a whole new world to me. The vast majority of the state's population is Mormon. I was dimly aware of this before moving here over a decade ago, but the true meaning did not sink in until I'd been on the job for a few months. My first full-time job was at a then-major software company (Novell, not that it matters.) I…
