Hey, you can believe what you want. So can I. This isn’t a post to enrage you because you have a different ‘belief’ system than I; rather, there are legitimate questions that surround how we perceive our faith and ideas of a divine creator. So don’t bitch at me. Instead, why don’t you write down some really good questions for your minister or priest, rabbi or imam to answer. If you swallow an answer without thinking about it, then you’re not thinking, and good luck with that. If your position can’t stand a little scrutiny, then your position isn’t fact-based, it’s faith-based, and if we keep that up we’re never going to solve the problems of hunger, disease, war; we’re never going to gain knowledge, momentum and wisdom. We will only continue to perpetuate division, mistrust, misunderstanding, hatred, closed-mindedness, separatism, superstition and fear.
And I don’t want that crap. So get busy and ask your leaders to stop lying and hand you the facts, not the ‘mysteries’.
I'm a normal guy in an abnormal life (and vice versa); someone capable and caring, a halfway-decent poet, songwriter, painter and photographer when I'm able to do it.
I have a great love of learning and have a long way to go before anything remotely recognizable as wisdom surfaces.
I despise liars and people of ill will whose only aim in life is to express their self-hatred through harming others.
I never, ever want to get married again although a date with someone that can carry an actual conversation isn't out of the realm of possibility, but they must be human and breathing at minimum.
I especially dislike the rampant misuse of the apostrophe and will do anything to educate those around me on its proper use.
The cat (in the picture with a border) is my wonderful if frustrating cat Hercules. He has a boot/foot fetish and enjoys being lightly butt-spanked continuously until he falls over on his side. I love him like crazy even if he considers me a lesser creature.
I write a blog called MyBipolarLife and am a very vocal advocate for those suffering with mental health issues.
