Life Condensed

I deleted the other blog posts because I soon realized that I had gone off on a massive tangent. So I'll explain how I got to where I am as briefly as possible to give context to my conundrum. I had to leave home at a young age and had my high school diploma mailed to a P.O. box. I headed out to California and from there, moved to Japan. I lived and worked in a restaurant owned by an abusive man with a family held financially prisoner to the restaurant and thus him. I also started fighting…

Fruit of the Womb

Only something as actively ignorant as religion could come up with the concept of men giving birth to women. It takes a keenly stupid mind to look upon the biology of mammals across the globe and come to the conclusion that in the instance of humanity above all other creatures, man came first, birthed women into existence and then passed the buck on to her along with the pain of childbirth. Mixed in with this slight, also comes the dominion over women because of the belief that gods created…

Introduction

I'm not usually one to burden a stranger with my problems.  Nor am I keen on sharing personal information with, anyone really. But it was suggested to me by an associate of a colleague to start a blog. I think my life is fairly interesting. I do not however think it a good use of another's life to read about my own unless there is some point to it. I kept a journal once, long ago. However, once I looked back on any previous entry I was incredibly disappointed with my past self and dearly…

Still kicking.

It's been months since I posted here but now that my personal life has reached a sort of equilibrium again, I have more mental energy. I hope things haven't changed that much on TA. TA is six years old!? Woot, woot!!

Response to religious discussions at work

I work in a very religious, but also very geek-friendly, area.  Bad-with-the-good.  While troubleshooting an issue today in a superior's office (whom I do not directly report to) religion somehow came up.  I must point out that this guy is awesome, energetic, friendly, intelligent, but also very... well... conservative and "local".  That's just what it is.  So I respect him but at the same time, it's like every other religious conversation at work:  I want to show my atheist colors, perhaps…

Atheists in Narcotics Anonymous

So, just to give you a little background on where I'm at in life, I am currently staying at a Christian-based homeless shelter in Washington Pennsylvania. I was arrested at the end of October 2013 for violating probation with drug charges that included a felony. I spent just over 9 months in the Washington County Correctional Facility and was released at the end of July of this year. Being that I burned all bridges in my addiction to heroin, I had no where to reside and the Washington City…

Stardust

DustBuster2a What is the nature of interstellar dust? How does it affect the starlight that passes through it? What can be done to locate and catalog the numerous, small, tenuous dust clouds that populate our galaxy at the higher latitudes? Is it possible to somehow vacuum under my refrigerator without moving the damn…

Atheist Group to Give Invocation at City Council Meeting in Huntsville, Alabama

I'm sure they will get hate mail, but it sounds like this city council wants to do the right thing.

In an email between the invocation coordinator and the atheist leader, the coordinator says, "We recognize that your drawing from the Free Thought Tradition will mean there will be no references to God, but in your own words, 'will offer some inspiration, ethical principles/norms, challenges for civic virtue, wisdom, and/or something else that will help those present…

What do you do with the anger?

My family and I left Christianity for 4 years ago.  The main reason was/is the hatred being constantly on display at our church.  This hatred wasn't visible to us before Barack Obama was President, but now it's evident in so many other areas besides politics.



My wife and kids are doing well as Atheists.  I, on the other hand, am probably not.  I find myself constantly dealing with anger issues.

I'm angry that my family had to go through this rejection by the people we…

Aftermath

I'm in the midst of a deep depression, and I have been trying to figure out why. I know why. Every little mile stone time wise is a reminder of the 2nd child I would have had... And perhaps the only other child I would have had...



I have had a very hard time with this because I know the people on TA would say (did say) it was for the best. I already have one abusive baby's daddy to contend with for the rest of my life, I didn't need a bipolar homicidal rapist in addition to that.… Continue

I thank whatever gods may be

Death With Dignity -the Gillian Bennett story.

Deadatnoon.com is a website created by Gillian Bennett, 84, diagnosed with dementia (Alzheimer's) three years ago. Her disposition about choosing the right time to terminate is both admirable and sobering. I truly hope her blog can be an inspiration to others who feel it important to die with a morsel of dignity.
