… him who writes this stuff.
Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

Believe it or not, this is by request. Also, lots of words (3,135 of them). Also, it’s my opinion . . . which means I meander in thought. I put this together rather quickly so if you find fault with … Continue reading
If one is an atheist . . . wait, I need to back up. I need to explain something basic. A theist is a person who believes there exists at least one god. An atheist is a person who does not believe any … Continue reading
I often wonder why certain people — myself included — have such different views when it comes to living our lives. By different, I mean not conforming to the majority of people. Obviously, because I think I’m smart, I believe … Continue reading
I’ve mentioned before I hold death responsible for the birth, and continuation, of most religions. I may or may not have spoken to the perspective the view of death gives on this life. Of course, I cannot realistically speak to … Continue reading
Note: even if not apparent to all, for the majority of my opinion writings I try to maintain a civil, even respectful tone. I am, after all, wanting to converse, and you can’t begin a conversation with anyone by starting off … Continue reading
Continuing my new thing I’m sure will be welcomed by few-to-none; dispersing my opinions. Here we go . . . Religion: rationalization I’ve had a few discussions of late with people who proudly point out they are not like “regular” … Continue reading
As I plod along this short life, I occasionally take stock of the human condition. The first thing I notice feeds the poor opinion I have of my fellow human beings. Greed, avarice, deceit, spitefulness, meanness . . . … Continue reading
Recently, like a couple of days ago, I chanced across a blog by a female Canadian student. She had written a piece on Roe vs. Wade, and some creepy male christian (and self-proclaimed theologian, no less) responded, drawing her … Continue reading
I’ve recently come across blog posts that sought to address difficult subjects. In most instances the authors threaded paths aimed at avoiding a discussion about the reason these subjects are considered difficult; religion. One author specifically excluded religion as … Continue reading
I’ve been silent for a few days . . . and the cheering motivated me to action! Seriously, I’ve been dealing with rearranging my home office, hooking up a new PC, and trying to secure my router. Yes, it looks … Continue reading
An interesting thing happened to me today . . . I commented on a post of a blog I follow, and my comment did not make it past the moderation stage. It done disappeared. I commented on a post that … Continue reading
I was working on a different post, but a comment on an old post of mine gave me pause. The post is “I Want To Kill Myself“, and the comment related to something I said. In that post I made … Continue reading
In May 2009 I wrote an editorial for Slice of SciFi regarding the movie Watchmen. Those not familiar with the movie might still find some interest in what I wrote as a way to get a glimpse into how my … Continue reading
