I do my best to comment to people’s questions via my 'When Belief Dies' profile, but it turns out that a couple of days ago I commented on a post on my Facebook Page with my personal account. Since then, I have had a couple of very 'high stat days' on WordPress, which means that … Continue reading So… you know?
As well as this blog post, I have released a video and audio version as I wanted to make sure the various people on both sides are made aware of what is changing. You can watch the announcement here: https://youtu.be/in43-HpaoKc I’ve just spent three hours capturing all the weekly tasks I perform to keep the … Continue reading Big Update (Welcome Kirsty!)
I've been doing a lot of reading and thinking recently. I have come to the realisation that there is a real importance held within being sceptical, even if you sit within a religious framework. The more I talk to people, the more I notice that humans take for granted that which confirms their worldview and … Continue reading Sceptical
I want to know all the answers. It’s maddening really, the quest for knowing trumps the quest into being time and time again. I seem to have a desire to understand so much to make sure I am either believing things that are correct or seeing where I am wrong and move onto a ground … Continue reading To answer it all
I was running the other day. Everything I saw around me the hills, trees, streams, cows, humans and deer, was formed in its base elements far before the formation of the world it now finds itself caught upon. In the ancient stars, which collapsed and exploded as they grew old and unstable, there formed these … Continue reading Where does this leave us?
What are the consequences of my writing and thinking? When all is said and done, have my decisions and actions made any difference at all? I believe they have insofar as I look at the path my life is on and see how different things are to where they could well have been if I … Continue reading Consequences
A couple of blog posts ago I spoke about the concerns I have around grounding reason, or rationality or sense. It's something that I've been thinking about a lot recently. The truth is I live each day as if reason was objective, but I still don't understand how it can be if there isn't a … Continue reading Objective VS Subjective
It's really strange having fallen from faith to now be starting to wonder if faith is the only way to underpin the very thing I used to push faith away with in the first place (rationality). I have noticed a fair few people lashing out at me about this recently. It's not that I am … Continue reading In the first place…
Agnostic Atheist. It's a term I have used a lot on the podcast and one that I explain in this way. Agnostic is due to knowledge; I don't know if God is real or not. Atheist is because I am not convinced that there is a God, not because I know there isn't a God. … Continue reading So what now?
When I look at what someone says, whether it is for or against a religious stance in regard to God, do I address it as I would hope someone would address what I say? I seem to have a few 'favourites’ in the anti-Christian world. Authors, YouTubers, podcasters, bloggers etc. Is it because I am … Continue reading Adjusting
