About Me:
My father was a Southern Baptist minister so I was the victim of indoctrination from an early age; state-sponsored child abuse in my opinion. Although I'm finally free from the mental poison that was woven into the fabric of my brain, there are still the occasional triggers that summon me to the darkness, i.e. blessing someone for sneezing.
Why are you here?
In the words of Emma Goldman:
"Already there are indications that theism, which is the theory of speculation, is being replaced by Atheism, which is the science of demonstration; the one hangs in the metaphysical clouds of the Beyond, while the other has its roots firmly in the soil. It is the earth, not heaven, which man must rescue if he is truly to be saved."

Posted on August 12, 2009 at 9:30pm 15 Comments

I don't know if anyone else engages the Christian propagandists on YouTube, but I've found it to be terribly entertaining - and great debating practice to boot.

If that medal can get me out of this place or ward off the fundies, then that would be great. But either way, it's good to find a rational safe-zone.

Hey! Nice of you to write me. Thanks!
I'm actually a Brazilian living in Denmark (for almost a year now). I don't know how cool you think Denmark is, but yeah it's kinda cool :) Except for the weather and the language (I'm still struggling to learn it!). Anyway, it's a country worth visiting :)

Hey, thanks for the add. It would be interesting to hear about some of your experiences living with a Baptist minister and how you came out (or your thoughts/reservations if you haven't). I think you might have a certain rare insight we could benefit by understanding.

Write a blog and give it a shot? :D
