Yes, it’s been a while

8:10 am Personal

At some point I’ll probably be taking down this blog. Not because I’m not ever going to blog again, but because I’m blogging elsewhere.

The new blog is in support of the book I just wrote:

Red Neck, Blue Collar, Atheist: Simple Thoughts About  Reason, Gods & Faith

The landing page for the book, with the full description, is HERE.

The book is up on Amazon.com HERE.

And the new blog, Blue Collar Atheist, is HERE.

Thanks to all those who have stuck with me as readers over the years — a lot of what went into the book was material I developed here and in my earlier blogging and blog commenting.

This is  a pretty good  book, and it’s not just me saying it. Early reviews have been really positive. I hope you’ll order one and let me know what you think.

    are you truly any different then a religious fanatic? They say religion is like a penis, it’s fine to have one, fine to be proud of it but please do not take it out in public and try to shove it down my throat. I find your writings the same.

    For the most part you slenderize religious individuals for merely being religious but how this any different if two religious groups fought over their gods? You shallow minded fools cannot see the trees from the forest. What is so wrong with letting people live in blissful ignorance? There are no religious wars near you and if you truly did care about that aspect of religion surely blogging isn’t the greatest means to accomplish your goal…

    But I think this is the crux of my point, you have no goal. Most likely your only goal is to hurt or insult individuals who believe in some make believe characters, but I ask you, is Hamlet real? Is King Lear real? No, these individuals are characters in fictional stories YET this individuals are noted as being some of the REALEST characters in modern literature and here is where you went astray. Instead of explaining to individuals this book is just that, a book. And this individuals, just as in any book, are written to be learned from religious individuals believe the lie of art (picasso once said art uses lies to tell the truth; think of fiction and hamlet never existing) You even speak to the power of written text to communicate key ideas but a thing you haven’t truly mentioned, in any of your blogs or posts that I have looked over in the past months is what the world would be like without religion…

    today without religion the world may be better off, money spent smarter, a more gloabalized world not fighting over some sand and all together happier place. But in the ancient times I ask who was the main client of all the arts???? Hmmmm…. that’s right, religion. It was religion that first introduced man to deep though and where philosophy is born from, the ancient myths (greek bible) but here you are on your mighty bull (dionysius would have your limbs if you understand any of that) thinking you can talk down to people for some reason. Too bad you’re probably after dollars, that just doesn’t make and cents to me though…

    I am atheist, but I am not discriminatory over any person based on where they came from, their beliefs or their ideology so long as they allow myself equal respect.
