About Me:
Allow me to introduce the largest character of writing career, myself. My name is Mark Andrew Strange and I am a person, first and foremost, a being with the ability to think for himself and to contemplate things outside his own existence. I was born in 1987, in a building that no longer exist as it once did, but that's okay, that's how the universe works I suppose, always in perpetual motion, always changing, recycling itself forever. The building of which I speak is Oral Roberts's City of Faith Medical and Research Center once located in Tulsa Oklahoma which now stands tall as the CityPlex Towers. It was open eight years before it was closed, just long enough to be an imprint on my life's story, closed in 1989, three years after my birth, due to being in debt. It's gone now, but I'm still here living life without it.

Why are you here?
To check this place out... I know nothing of it other then the fact it has atheist in the title so that's the truth of it.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
Why I left "my religion" doesn't really ask the right question because I left all religion not just mine, the reason being that I look around and I see so many religions out there 99.9% of which say that they are the right way and the only way and that to not follow them is to be a outcast, a sinner, destined for some kind of punishment. Who is to say which one is right and which one is wrong? As for me, I don't believe any of them.

Talk About "Nothing"

Posted on November 15, 2010 at 10:30am 16 Comments

What is "Nothing?" This question sounds like an oxymoron, because "Is" can only be said about something that exist. Nothing can not exist unless it is "Something" which, in my understanding of the word, it isn't. but when I hear the words "Something from Nothing" I get the sense that I am wrong and “Nothing” simply means the absence of a particular something, or equal to the word Zero.



So again, “What is Nothing?”



Understanding the word might give me better… Continue

"Taking It Out On God"

Posted on September 15, 2010 at 5:00am 10 Comments

Why do people assume something bad happen to me? Why do people assume that without god there is no happiness and you must be mad at god to be an Atheist? On several occasions I have encountered people who claim not to be religious or even Christan, but then say, referring to my being Atheist: " I feel so sorry for you...you have been hurt...your angry and taking it out on god."



um, I can not be mad at something I do not believe exist. No one has wronged me so profoundly, I just… Continue

"Doubt"

Posted on August 27, 2010 at 10:00am 2 Comments

I'm a blind man;

I can not see.

The floor is falling from underneath me;

Falling into unbelief.



Darkness floods this soul of mine,

Till no light can I find.

Close my eyes to the truth--

No to evidence,

Reason is cruel,

Blinded eyes this is the rule.



I pray to god yet he is silent.

I fear without him the world is violent

The angels … Continue

Should Gay Marriage Be Legal

Posted on August 25, 2010 at 3:00pm 17 Comments

Okay let me rephrase the question so that maybe someone can understand how I hear it better:

"Should black people be allowed to marry?"

"Should people with blond hair be allowed to marry?"

"Should Christians be allowed to marry?"

This is what I'm hearing and it's not right - not right at all! It should not even be a discussion - It's silly to the even ask; yet, it seems to be one of the top discussions of all time.



We Americans have a…
