About Me:
Just a guy who is trying to get through life as best as can.
Why are you here?
I have only been an Athiest since April 08, but was questioning my faith and religion in general for years and finally made up my mind that god most likely does not exist. I have been happier ever since I made that decision even at personal cost of friendships to me.

I am here because at least I wont get judged here for not believing in a god.

"Over 20 people killed but THANK GOD my family was spared!"....So what about the other families? Should they also thank god to have family members killed by violent storms? DOES NOT make any sense to me!

this should be fun

tonight is my 20 year high school reunion and when I joined fb about a year ago i didnt post alot of atheist stuff on it. then this past april, i along with many other atheists joined "Zombie Jebus" week and posted something Athiest in the status every day. i changed mine every few hours with "thought provoking things". this just pissed off alot of people and many people from hs (about 60 or so) defriended me. i even had a few block me. my own first cousin defriended me for a while. which i… Continue

Essay for Com101

Posted on September 28, 2010 at 1:35am 1 Comment

I am now a full time college student and its been radically differant from the military to say the least. I was given a an assignment for my comopsition class in what was the biggest influence in your life. I would have to say was my deconversion. I wrote this essay and the first whole rough draft is due on wed. I was wondering what you all thought of it? I am looking for content criticism in this, but any constructive crit is good.…

My retirement from the military is coming soon. I have been studiously removing all mentions of god from everything that i can, no chaplain (been asked several times in that). I am only trying to keep it as military as possible without the relgious clap trap that is infused with EVERYTHING in our fucking culture.

Which brings me to my point of this blog. I am writting my speech and I have few things that I am writting about. I first off want to bring this…

Thanks for the suggestion, Matthew. I tried to find the group, but couldn't find any group specifically labeled FB Atheists. There are several others though. Do you have a link?

Thank you for the warm welcome! I found this website a few months ago and I just haven't created a profile on it until now. It's a relief to be able to talk to people who won't get mad at my views, which I consider reasonable.
