Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
In regard to the Universe - the grandeur of it, the beauty and the brilliance of its stars, and the luster and peace intrinsic to it - I, as we all are, am nothing.

I am a martial arts enthusiast with training in Escrima, Hapkido, and boxing. Additionally, I have interests in Muay Thai and Jiujitsu amongst others. I also have interests in free climbing and parkour.

I am a writer and all blog posts on this page are pieces I have done that relate to theism. However, I am thinking of including other pieces I have written on other topics.

Open Letter to YouTube User "GodLowDown" on Emotional Appeal of Atheism

Though it would better if this were said in person, to hesitate at all would diminish the message I wish to convey. In the video “ATHEISM: What Caused God?” you made a statement that seemed rather ignorant or at leastarrogant. I am not referring to your explanation that god is somehow exempt fromthe same logic that you demand we use to question the origin of the Universe,though that is arrogant. I am referring to your comment that atheist has thesame “emotional appeal” as theism. To best…See More

I stood on the precipice of the Kingdom of Paradise

And looked down on the realm below.



It seemed to pale in comparison

To the glory of the Kingdom of Heaven



Which radiated with beauty,

Radiated with peace,



And radiated with understanding

For all that dwelled within it



To the point that those in the realm below

Would strive to… Continue

What is the point of intellect?

People spend money at institutions

To be taught by teachers

Of the best quality,

To learn the things

That will make them leaders in society.

And yet,

People forget what they learn

In favor of what they are told by others

And what sounds more comforting.

People forget the science of centuries

And think that the Earth is six thousand years old,

That dinosaurs and man co-existed,

That a flood occurred… Continue

Go ahead.

Travel with the Shepherd

For there is some security it that.

He will lead the way

While you follow behind,

And while you may still get lost

He will come and find you,

And he will keep the wolves and thieves at bay

So you will be safe –

For a time.

For a Shepherd needs to make a living

And his living is made with his sheep.

While you follow blindly,

Content that no wolf will eat you

Or thief will steal you,

The… Continue

Wesley,

I am a full time magician and found this to be a great story / poem. May I have your permission to use this in my shows? I have an edutainment show I take into schools, universities, etc. where your poem "Magician" will fit well.
