Hey there! How's it going? Long time no see! I'm not dead--it's just that when I started this blog years ago I didn't have a full-time job as a writer with two kids...and now I do. It's hard to find the mental energy to think deep thoughts and try to write them down coherently when you've already spent your entire working day writing down other things and your free time doesn't start until 9pm. I'm sure all you parents out there know exactly what I'm talking about.
So anyway, I finally wrote up the rough draft of a post on atheism that I promised months ago. Hopefully that will be out in a few days. Before I post that one, though, I wanted to lay a little groundwork with an aside on what people believe and how we tend to react to others who believe something different than us.
Here's my thesis:
No matter what your spiritual or atheistic beliefs are, you believe something ludicrous and crazy.
