"Thanks SavannahI love your scare tactic, nicely done! If they ever give you problems again, you can call the local Kingdom Hall and ask to be put on the no knock list. (That's not actually the name, but it works.) They should respect it."

Atheism is Not a Philosophy

There is a lot that I don't agree with Sam Harris on. I have always loved his 'atheism is not a philosophy' quote though. He wrote it in Letter to a Christian Nation. I have met quite a few atheists and I certainly don't agree with them on everything. Hell, Irish and I don't even share the same exact worldview. That's the thing about…See More

When a Jehovah's Witness Grows Up to be an Atheist

Posted on May 29, 2014 at 4:49pm 8 Comments

After all this time, all these years, all these degrees of separation - a mere knock guides me to shedded enemies. It was midmorning when a pair of shadows alerted me to some unexpected presences. I think I knew before I knew, my gut clenching beyond the usual spasm of social anxiety.

The blockers of the light lingered and adjusted themselves and finally put knuckle to…

It's Better that I Die...You too

cemetary

I am going to die. There have been times in my life when this fact scared me. Two unknown details of my demise still have the power to worry my weary mind: when and how.
