“Don’t you believe in flying saucers, they ask me? Don’t you believe in telepathy? — in ancient astronauts? — in the Bermuda triangle? — in life after death?

No, I reply. No, no, no, no, and again no.

One person recently, goaded into desperation by the litany of unrelieved negation, burst out “Don’t you believe in anything?”

Yes”, I said. “I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I’ll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be.”

Growing up religious was bad enough, now I am an atheist in the deep south in the very religious state of Mississippi.

This page is my forum and voice. It is here I will post writings from my past as well as new stuff to come.  I hope to explain and reveal why I am an atheist and why I can no longer go along with Christianity or any religion, but rather go with reason and reality in a life void of fairy tales and polluted ideals of what we are here for.

So come along and join the ride.  See what having a freed mind is like.

MS Atheist.
