I Don’t Believe You


I try to not be rude to anyone. It’s difficult sometimes because when anyone runs into the absolute stupid, sometimes the only response I seem to be able to have is to actually call that person stupid.  Many atheists go through this daily. For me, it’s not so common but as this blog has gained a tiny bit of a following, it has started to become something I have started paying attention to.

The Exhaustion of Being an Atheist


I have to say that there are times when being an atheist is exhausting. I have friends and colleagues ask me what I think about some news item, whether political or social, not as a conservative, but as an atheist.
