Being an Atheist in the 2010s: Part Three

There was a specific moment that started me wanting to write about being an atheist. It started on Facebook, where all the worthless battles are fought. I was reading something on Jesse Ventura’s Facebook page. Now, I don’t agree with a vast majority of what this dude says, but he makes interesting points now and again, and one day, he posted a meme (a way to get your message across to dumb people who hate reading) that in a nutshell said Christians care way too much about fighting against gay marriage, but have no problem getting divorced, which was supposedly something Jesus was against.

Being an Atheist in the 2010s: Part Two

In part one of this piece, I rambled on quite a bit about my first moments with skepticism, which led to becoming an atheist, the things I’ve had to hear coworkers talk about in the workplace, and I ended on fanaticism being dangerous, no matter what you believe in. There is no real cohesiveness to all of this. It’s more just thoughts and opinions I felt I had to keep buried because of my beliefs.

Being an Atheist in the 2010s: Part One

When I was around 9, I was brought to Sunday school. I never liked Sunday school, but because my mother was the daughter of a Canon, my sisters and I had to go, while my dad got to stay home. Why Sunday school existed never hit me, up until this point. We sat in a circle while some adults tried to keep us impatient folks quiet, and the school teacher told us the story of Noah and his ark. We had been told stories like this before, like about Jonah getting stuck in the whale. Up until this point, I had consider them nothing but that: stories.

That’s All, Folks!

I’m not much of a quitter. I suck at it. Back in November, I tried to quit comedy. Remember that? It didn’t work out very well. During that time, I was going through some stress-related issues, which didn’t leave me with a clear mind, and more importantly, my priorities were a mess, which I feel I’ve finally got in order. Six or seven months later, mentally, I’m a much stronger person as well as physically too, since I do all that working out stuff. I’ve been writing a lot more and getting a lot more writing jobs as well, and this has caused a few problems. I don’t have time for myself, and I’ve come dangerously close to missing a few deadlines.

Changing My Dumb Life For The Better: 4/15/13

Sometimes, I feel like no matter how hard I work out that I just don’t lose weight. My scale says I’ve gained a bit of weight in the past month. I’m back up to around 208lbs, one pound lighter from where I started. However, I’ve been doing more weight training recently, and I know for a fact I’ve gotten a bit stronger since heavy shit just ain’t so heavy anymore. But the scale bums me out, a lot. It makes me think this is all a pointless journey, until today…
