I would think if anything were to define "Act of God" it would be a sudden and unexpected gust of wind strong enough to destroy a steel framed concert stage.Why is it no one ever blames their God for tragic events but always seeks comfort…See More

"Your addendum is fantastic. I hope I can face that possibility with the same strength and conviction of non-belief you did. My thought is, what will my final thought be before they would put me under for a similar operation. I do know I've…"

Morality and Purpose in Life

Posted on May 31, 2010 at 2:31pm 4 Comments

Being my first blog post on TA, I felt I should start with my basic principles for how I live my life. While I am not a militant atheist (I tend to consider myself agnostic leaning toward atheist) I don't hide my views when the topic of conversation leads to the spiritual.
