So, I am truly excited to announce that my first book of poetry and short stories, Contemplations, has been published today on amazon.com!
I've attached the link to the book if anyone is interested in a good read.

So, I have started listening to the Audio Quran, since I have never read it before, and I have decided to keep a running journal of the lessons I can take away from it.
So far, 2 chapters in (roughly 2 hours) this is what I have learned.
Day 1: Continue
- Fasting wards off evil.
- The longer you fast, the more healthy you will be.
- Slay all disbelievers, until religion is for Allah.
- Don't eat pork.

Over a month ago, I was asked by a friend who is also a youth pastor to read “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist.” After some digging, it seems the YP wants to have an open discussion and listen to my opinion regarding the book. Hopefully, these are his true intentions.
With that in mind, I saw this as an opportunity to refresh my knowledge in apologetics and to show that atheists… Continue

I know boring and quite overused title but my limited imagination at this time is not allowing for creativity. I can totally identify with the cultures and peoples who were approached by the missionaries in the past and unfortunately in the present. It is clear that we all experience a need to create meaning and to also move beyond this life into another more pleasant life beyond our death. For myself I have come to the conclusion this it is highly unlikely that my spirit will remain intact… Continue

I bent the binding of The Good Atheist, Living a Purpose-Filled Life Without God, by Dan Barker, in hopes that I would either come out of it in some way affirmed or finally have a resource for a person struggling with the decision to let go of their faith. When I closed the book, I felt like a sore eared member of the choir. The majority of Barker’s book is an appeal to authority and celebrity, a mishap of astonishing proportion when speaking about, to, or for, a community that… Continue

I started writing an "Unintelligent Design" book, documenting the problems with thinking that humans are intelligently designed. I started it about a year ago and am about 80 pages in but I have slowed considerably. I have all my ideas in line, but ran out of time and motivation. I am a medical student in Cleveland and really see a lot of flaws in the human body, having cut into several of them post-mortem. Just saying, and it's nothing new, that we are a poor fit for any environment; we are… Continue

I feel a bit shady posting this as my very first blog; I blog on my other site (greengeekgirl.com) and rarely think to migrate the blogs over here. I'm looking for a few intelligent readers, though, so I'm pressing on!
Note: This is absolutely and positively an attempt to get cool new members for my book group. But don't be fooled--I'm not mass-spamming this all over every site that I visit. I'm concentrating my efforts on the few sites where I will find intelligent,… Continue

When I was a child, I was told that I could be anything I wanted when I grew up.
Most of us were, but my family tried to ensure that I was raised in an environment where I knew it in essence...where it wasn't just words.
My grandparents always made sure that I had the opportunity to do martial arts, ballet, theater and soccer. When at the age of 12 or so I decided I wanted to play hockey, too. They encouraged me.
After their death, I lived with an aunt and uncle. They… Continue

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS!! I NEED FEEDBACK ON MY ATHEIST MEMOIRE IN PROGRESS!!
From time to time memories of my former life as a Protestant Christian come back. Some of them are pleasant, some unpleasant, others simply perplexing.
There is one that came to mind today that is still perplexing to this day.
Years ago, I had decided to confirm myself into the church, ironically, this was only a year before my dramatic… Continue

(note: This is the first part of an exercise that I did with some Christian friends. In a nutshell, we agreed to examine and comment on the media presented as evidence by the other side. I'll post a different one each day, or you can find a link to the whole series below if you do not wish to wait. Once again, I'll post them all here - I do not wish to skirt the blog guidelines).
(one more note - I didn't have the time… Continue

When someone writes about the bible, isn't it suppose to be either underlined or in italic since it is a book, going by grammer rules?

I have been slowly reading a good but challenging book titled Atheism Advanced
. Though I am only up to chapter 4, it seems that the author is trying to argue that we atheists are not effectively debating religion because we're debating god believers on their own terms.
Eller took on the difficult challenge of arguing that religion is not a real entity, but he goes on to explain how the concepts of gods, supernatural ideas, and other belief systems have evolved over time, as if… Continue

I saw this CD set at a book store a while back for over $20. It caught my eye, but didn't seem like it would be worth the price. But when I saw it for way cheaper on iTunes, I decided to give it a go.
Sweeney's background is typical is some ways. She was given a very strong religious upbringing. Although she sees the hypocrisy behind the rules of her faith as a child, she still believes in god. This illustrates the mental pounding her parents gave her, in an effort to "instill… Continue
