About Me:
I'm a history teacher with a masters' degree and I teach in the most "radically conservative" county in the entire Bible Belt. For three years running, our graduation speakers were ministers who preached christian (Yes, lower case!) sermons replete with "Amen's" from the yokels. Good people in many ways but tragically ignorant and aggressively defensive when their fantasies are challenged. I'm proud of the fact that my two kids in college always thought that religious "thinkers" of the local variety were hilariously funny.

Why are you here?
I just happened across this site and thought that it looked like fun.

Why you left your religion.
Although I was raised first in the Pentecostal Holiness Church, then the standard Baptist drivel, then the Episcopalian Church, a progression that mirrored the family's rise in economic and social status, I cannot remember a time when I actually swallowed the basic bull feces. The whole project is so obviously juvenile. It's a "wholy" invented product of the vast majority of humans who a)-lack the courage to face their own mortality, b)-need a dictatorial father-figure to relieve them of the responsibility of thinking, and c)-demand certainty because they are incapable of dealing with the pervasive ambiguity that is the human condition. While it is possible that there exists some sort of entity that we, in our ignorance, might call "god" (whatever the hell that word means) there is NO POSSIBILITY that such an entity(ies) could ever qualify as such under the dogma of any human religion with which I am familiar. Please! give me a break!
