New Year, Still Atheist

I haven't been here in a while...  I was chastised for posting in the incorrect spot, and I felt rebellious against the rules and ran away for a bit.  I can be a child (and I don't care).  Plus, I was very busy graduating from nursing school, starting my job as a RN and also starting my nursing bachelor's program.  I also have heathens to raise and a husband to be a wife to. 

I love being a nurse.  I love my job, I love my coworkers, I love my paycheck.  I'm a pretty happy camper…

Harvest Parties

Halloween approaches. My youngest, who is in kindergarten, is gearing up for her class party, which is still considered a "Halloween party" and she will be able to wear a costume and load up on sugar. My oldest, I have learned, has a few offspring of party-poopers in her class. Her teacher reported to my mother-in-law (who picked my little ladies up from school the other day) that she was still deciding on how to hold the party and that she will send out a letter soon.



The party will… Continue

Taking Advantage

I am currently participating in my psychiatric rotation for school. I attended the "Spirituality Group" today out of pure morbid curiosity. It was as expected, so I won't go into that.



What I thought about instead when I was driving home afterward was what would have happened if I was running that group? Here are these people in fragile mental states (they were all, by chance, simply people feeling very depressed), and I could lead them gently to examine what kind of omnipotent being… Continue

Through the Wormhole

Just a quickie blog. I just watched a recent episode of "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman" concerning whether or not god exists and if we can "find" him/her/it.



I had not heard of A. Garrett Lisi before this, but I was very impressed with him. He is possibly on the verge of mathematically tying the forces that govern the universe via physics together. The show kept talking about how he was trying to "find the creator" via a mathematic equation, but Lisi himself stated that he… Continue

On Moses

Before I really confirmed my atheism, I went searching for religion. I picked up the Bible. My first impression on Moses was this: con-man of the highest class.



Moses lived in hard times. Food depended on the weather, disease was rampant, sanitation scarce, wealth completely unevenly distributed, slavery abundant, and despite what the Bible claimed, lifetimes were brief.



Suddenly, Moses "discovers" the creation of all mankind! Amazing! Moses is the only one who can see… Continue

The Atheist Who Celebrated Easter

I just need to confess: I still celebrate holidays. In fact, I love them. LOVE them. I grew up in a home where holidays were not related to religion. Plus, I knew pretty early on that they were rip-offs of pagan celebrations, which meant to me they up for grabs for anyone, really. Holidays always represented the Four F's: Friends, Family, Food, and Fun. They are bright, happy, sparkle-points of my childhood, and for that reason they remain a part of my life.



So, I continue to…

When Mountains Shake

Early Saturday morning, my husband's best friend (whom we will call MD) decided to descend over a steep ridge on his snowmobile. The snow was fresh and heavy, the day was beautiful. Immediately, he broke off an avalanche behind him. Before he probably literally even knew what was happening, the force of the snow gathering strength behind him snapped his neck and then ragdolled him through the rocks (breaking his ribs and both legs), and on through to the bowl (ie, a valley) where it buried him… Continue

Shacked Up (A Book Review)

I don't know why, but I was thinking about this book the other day. One of my darlingest (and Catholic) friends lent it to me, swearing that I "had to read it!" Perhaps y'all have heard of that Christian cult phenomenon, "The Shack"?



I read it. I'll read anything, really. My darlingest friend invited me out to a birthday dinner and wine bar date later on, and at that time I returned her book to her. Another mutual friend was there, and they both stared at me sweetly expectant,… Continue

Mini-Intro

I live in a small town in Idaho. Idaho is not known nationally for it's open-mindedness or acceptedness, but I'm in the middle of nature and I don't have to play well with others if I don't want to, so it's never bothered me. My husband is disabled so he stays home with our two daughters (and snowmobiles!), and I am a full-time nursing student. By full-time, I mean I have no life except nursing school. It's the toughest thing I've ever done.

I love my fellow students,…
