Boy Scouts of America at Public Schools

Hey guys, I have a couple of concerns with the Boy Scouts popping up at my girlfriend's child's school.  He's in the first grade, and the boy scouts came yesterday looking to recruit.  He, of course,…Continue

"I'm not saying I support the Boy Scouts, but I have to say I think I understand their position. It seems the main reason why people are OK with the Boy Scouts having a discriminatory stance against gays is because most parents wouldn't…"

Boy Scouts of America at Public Schools

Hey guys, I have a couple of concerns with the Boy Scouts popping up at my girlfriend's child's school.  He's in the first grade, and the boy scouts came yesterday looking to recruit.  He, of course, automatically assumed he was already in the boy scouts because of this.  Due to their discriminatory nature, and their complete arrogance, I talked to him about how the Boy Scouts were bad because they discriminated against certain people.  It was an awkward conversation, because I had to explain…See More

Slavery Is Fine as Long as It Gets People Closer to God!

So last night, I got into a very heated, very emotional debate with someone on Facebook.  In case you didn't know, that's what Facebook is for.  You get on there, you find some post that some friend has put up, and you troll the shit out of it.  That, obviously, is a joke, but it can sometimes be seen as truth.  I took screen captures of the conversation with the woman I was "debating," but in order to keep identities private, I will not post those screen caps, even though I feel her ignorant…See More

Get Off My Lawn

Posted on August 29, 2012 at 11:00am 0 Comments

So the title of my blog today is Get Off My Lawn.  The reason I have chosen to title it as such is because I feel like a sour, mean, crotchety, toothless old man in a wife beater sitting on his porch with a shotgun yelling at the neighborhood kids to "Get off my lawn!!!"



In this instance, I will assume the role of the mean old man, and I will hold that position with pride.  The neighborhood kids in this instance are theists, mainly Christians.  Since I am a lower…

How I Became Atheist

Posted on February 2, 2012 at 9:51pm 2 Comments

How I came to be atheist is actually a pretty long story.  I've explained it to a few people in the past, and even moreso in recent times, since reason, logic, and atheism have been more prominent in my thoughts.  I'll start from as far back as I can remember, which is probably when I was 5 or 6 years old.



I grew up in a Christian family.  Not all church going Christians, or "by the book" Christians, so to speak, but Christians nonetheless.  My grandparents on my mother's side were…
