I have too many blogs already, so why start another, especially when I'm neglecting most of my other ones as it is? I can't really answer that, except to say that it somehow manages to seem like a good idea at this time.

I'm fascinated by Christianity. I stopped attending church and considering myself Christian when I was still a boy. But I continue to marvel at how so many people throughout the world embrace or at least say they embrace the "faith," and I love to discuss Christianity with them as well as with anyone else who wants to discuss it with me.

Now some would say that I do this because deep down, in my heart of hearts, I know that Christianity is my true and only path to salvation, and I subconsciously long to return to the fold. Maybe that's true, although virtually my entire conscious mind considers Christianity, as I understand it, to be ridiculously implausible not only for more reasons that I can shake a stick at, but also for more reasons than there are probably sticks to shake.

However, the way I look at it, whatever my deepest and not-so-deep motivations are for my continuing interest in Christianity and for my lingering desire to discuss its shortcomings and write about them, I have nothing to lose, except a little time, and potentially a great deal to gain from following my Campbellian bliss. And if the truth be told, and it might as well be, writing and talking about Christianity is certainly a vital part of my bliss. It went through a relatively dormant period for a number of years, but this website and this here blog are helping to revive it, and I'm grateful for that.

I don't know where I'll be going with this blog or how often I'll be going there, but I welcome any and every one who wishes to accompany me along the way.

I find I am fascinated by religion to. Personally, every time I encounter another religious person it baffles me. I always get surprised that people still believe that shit. I know it sounds ridiculous when it's all around us, but I don't think of myself as one of our deep thinkers, so it surprises me when I realize that not everyone has caught up.
