    Indeed

    I've been atheist for as long as i can remember. The shift to the left has been a recent move for me. When i was younger I was HARDCORE conservative (product of being raised in a house filled with them). I was unfamilliar with the issues. The love of my life was a more aimed to...

    Don't Ever Label Yourself

    I'm a bit disturbed when people label themselves as this or that and then let all the other things they're for or against be influenced by the label. It is possible to be 'liberal' and at the same time a fiscal conservarive, or not to believe that the Bible is the word of...

    I am a die hard liberal atheist.

    It wasn't always so. I was brought up conservative christian and have gradually discovered most of what they told me is not true. I think coming out as atheist was easier than admitting I am liberal. Perhaps because people know that political activism does more than prayer...

    Yes I Am

    I'm also a mother, a redhead, a small business owner, a soon to be ex-wife, a sister, a lover, and a friend. Oh, and I enjoy romantic dinners for two and long walks on the beach. I guess that sums me up. :)

    Belief Is Not A Choice

    Not going to upchuck my whole experience at the moment, but I really think it's silly to believe in some kind of anthropomorphic god that has human tendencies to love, hate, have a gender, etc. Even SILLIER to think that there's some kind of need for a being to command worship of...

    Not What I Thought (sorry So Long)

    I grew up mildly religious. My mother would take me to my Papa's church sometimes (mainly to appease him and my step-grandmother) and the only memories I have of this church are the donuts afterwards. Religion never reached out and took hold of me, but I desperately wanted...
