Judas: Sinner, Saint, Or Catalyst?

Posted by zomberina , 26 March 2015 · 70 views

Judas: Sinner, Saint, Or Catalyst? I read an interesting article on CNN the other day by Craig Gross. For those who aren't familiar with Craig, he's a pastor and founder of xxxchurch.com, which helps fight porn addiction. The article he wrote was entitled "Is Judas In Hell?" , and you can read it here: http://www.cnn.com/2...esus/index.html .

In a nutshell, he ac...


Red Pill, Blue Pill, Green Pill, Fix You Up Cocktail

Posted by zomberina , 21 March 2015 · 124 views

Red Pill, Blue Pill, Green Pill, Fix You Up Cocktail It was one of those little paper cups that one can put ketchup or tartar sauce in. A white little bowl of pressed edges and a crimped rim. Almost origami like. Just a shallow condiment cup that, at its bottom, held two impossibly small pills that held too many promises to believe.

Help me sleep.
Help me calm down.
Help me have control.
Help me feel norma...


The Badge Of Survival

Posted by zomberina , 16 March 2015 · 161 views

The Badge Of Survival As requested, a compilation of some of my essays are now in eBook format. There are fourteen total compositions, nine of which are new and not published until now. This short book focuses on some of my reflections of childhood abuse, loss of religion, and so on. I know most who read my experiences enjoy them simply because one can relate. http://www.ex-ch...


Where Am I Again?

Posted by zomberina , 11 March 2015 · 183 views

Where Am I Again? A lot of politicians and congressional members have been making the headlines in some of the worst ways lately. Headline making behavior like writing treasonous sounding letters of hate and rebellion against diplomatic talks directly to Iranian leadership. Making the phrase "climate change" an unrecognized term when talking about Earth science. Trying to...


Celebrating Is Better Than Defending

Posted by zomberina , 03 March 2015 · 319 views

Celebrating Is Better Than Defending I hate to admit this, but I have a trophy folder on my laptop. Not game trophy images. Not racks of deer I've hunted. Not the typical photos of my children standing all posed with academic or sport awards. No, it's a folder full of screenshots. Frozen images in time, with winning moments in debates with religious followers who attempted sparring with me a...


When Atheist Lovers Collide

When Atheist Lovers Collide "Anyone who believes in that shit is an idiot. Feeble minded and stupid."

Man, that is pretty harsh an assessment of those who believe in religion, isn't it? It's even harder to hear when you don't share the same attitude towards theists. Worse? What if that was your lover talking to you? These type of atheist attitudes can be difficult in a relationship...


When Psychopaths Strike

Posted by zomberina , 21 February 2015 · 288 views

When Psychopaths Strike Craig Hicks made headlines this week after brutally gunning down three UNC students over an alleged parking space disagreement. Many are saying in reports that his aggressive response was part of a larger ideological motive. Deah Barakat, 23; Yusor Mohammed, 21; and Razan Abu-Sallah, 19, were of Muslim faith, and Hicks is a self declared atheist.

There a...

If You Could Reveal The Truth, Would You? Should You? Before you begin this blog, and if you are not familiar with Shalom Auslander's writings, I ask you to enjoy this podcast from This American Life that reads a brief short story of his called Chicken Coop For The Soul. This story is the basis for my discussion today. 8 minutes of your life, go ahead and listen.



Altar Calls And Night Terrors

Posted by zomberina , 10 February 2015 · 305 views

Altar Calls And Night Terrors It was another terrifying experience. One of many throughout the years. This time I woke up, face covered in tears, mind in a panic as I took a few minutes to calm down. I spent a bit longer than usual getting reoriented, my mind's movie content having hit a NC-17 for a number of things. But confirming that horrible episode of disaster and loss wasn't my...


Misguided Acts Of Nobility

Posted by zomberina , 30 January 2015 · 258 views

Misguided Acts Of Nobility "I'm going to Kurdistand in March. I'm going to fight ISIS."

Not something you want to hear from a long time friend. Especially when it is followed up by, "This is something I believe in." Plenty of other platitudes followed. Empty assurances of safe zones he would be assigned to, all the while I am well aware of the ground war going on in Kurdistan, and...
