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
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?
I don't know how to say this. I think this book might have changed everything. I am still reeling from it, so maybe after a cup of tea and a good walk, I will be able to brush it off and move on, but something is itching in I am not saying I am a … Continue reading Book Review: Miracles
It is very easy, when leaving a religion, to push every aspect of it away and never look at it again. Maybe this is best for some people, but I don't think it's right for everyone, and I would argue it is not right for society (at least within the UK) as a whole. Do … Continue reading The Substrate
Before I had let go of my religious conviction, when I realised it wasn't rooted in anything tangible, I always thought that people knew, deep down, that God was literally real. Rather than being honestly uncertain about His existence, they rather wanted to live their own way and didn't want anything to do with Him. … Continue reading Could God…
It happens all the time. I tell someone that I don't think there is enough evidence to prove the existence of God, and they claim that I have no basis for morality, love, purpose or hope. Pick any positive emotive emphases and it is taken away from you by a Christian because they can't understand … Continue reading No Basis
It was one of the first things I decided on in my blogging journey, I spent a while going through a few options and found myself loving it very quickly. Plus, when you are trying to settle on a name that expresses what your blog is about, you need to make sure it is short, … Continue reading Why – When Belief Dies?
I really flipping enjoyed this book. It feels like it is written for older children or young adults and I am not gonna lie, I think that's a really good thing. Mr Dawkins looks at a wide range of subjects, to name a few; light, evolution, earthquakes and miracles. For each section, he addresses the … Continue reading Book Review: The Magic of Reality
This book broke my heart. It also really pissed me off. I expect a true belief system to be able to fight into the world we see around us, not explain how it is still relevant and why it is true, regardless of what we see around us. I wanted an offensive assault on my … Continue reading Book Review: Confronting Christianity
There is something beautiful in finality, all things come to an end and as far as we can tell we are simply conscious beings, here one moment and without any rhyme or reason gone in the next. Our time is fleeting, yet for some reason, we (humanity) go to extreme lengths to pretend and act … Continue reading Book Review: Mortality
