When Atheist Lovers Collide

Posted by zomberina , 26 February 2015 · 95 views

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 · 209 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.

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 · 231 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 · 220 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...

You Have To Be A Die Hard Cynic To Be Religious

Posted by zomberina , 18 January 2015 · 303 views

You Have To Be A Die Hard Cynic To Be Religious Most of my mornings are filled with top 40 hits of pop music as I commute to work, kids in tow. This radio station is a clear favorite for all of us with its variety, and usually I can ignore the music and let the kids enjoy a little be bopping before going to school. Recently though, we discovered that on Sunday mornings there is a half hour of programmi...

Damaged And Dating: Situations I Never Thought Of Until Now

Posted by zomberina , 14 January 2015 · 357 views

Damaged And Dating: Situations I Never Thought Of Until Now I am a survivor of religious brainwashing and amplified abuse due to religious influences in my childhood household.

I was trained from an early age that life was a constant battle between the divine and my imperfect flesh. I was regularly made aware that there would come a day when I might wake up and find everyone I loved gone; vanished from the very f...

The Best Larping Around: Religious Services

Posted by zomberina , 06 January 2015 · 258 views

The Best Larping Around: Religious Services Let's talk about a past time I thoroughly enjoy now and then.

LARP.

For those unfamiliar, LARP is an acronym for Live Action Role Play. Essentially, a bunch of similarly minded folks get together and collaborate to have fun pretending scenes out of their favorite movies, books, comics, etc. This is strictly pretending, of course, but with rules involved...

How Religiously Based Relationships Destroy Future Generations Of Families

Posted by zomberina , 06 November 2014 · 476 views

How Religiously Based Relationships Destroy Future Generations Of Families I used to be involved with a guy that liked to point out all my flaws, offer to work on our relationship, and then would do the exact opposite. Would avoid working on the relationship and blame me, screw around with many other women, and insist it isn't fair he has to change who he is since he likes himself as is. I was the problem, not him.

Self Deprecation In Christianity: A Facetiously Emotional Sales Ploy

Posted by zomberina , 02 November 2014 · 432 views

Self Deprecation In Christianity: A Facetiously Emotional Sales Ploy We have all been there and done it. Sitting on a couch, consoling a friend over a terrible mistake that has been made, and used our own personal flaws as a buffer before giving advice on what to do about the mess at hand. This is self deprecation, and while a very useful tool while navigating social situations, there is a fine line between using it as a t...
