The validity of religious experience

I’m going to say something that I think some of you monotheists might have trouble with. But here goes: All religious experiences are valid. Hang with me a minute. No one has the right to tell me that I didn’t have an experience with Isis, Hathor and Nephthys nine years ago – any more than… Continue reading The validity of religious experience

Thoughts on reading “Galileo’s Daughter”

While pretending to be an Aflac agent recently, I found myself in a bookstore. One of the books I picked up was “Galileo’s Daughter: A Historical Memoir of Science, Faith, and Love.” I finally got to read it this week. I’ve been wanting this book for a while, ever since I heard the author, Dava… Continue reading Thoughts on reading “Galileo’s Daughter”


The intrusion of religion

It’s amazing. You’re just going along, having an ordinary day, minding your own business, when Bam! Somebody decides to insert religion where it doesn’t belong. The lady I work with asked me today if I was interested in selling jewelry. She had a brochure in her car, she said. Sure, I said, I’ll take a… Continue reading The intrusion of religion


Tolerance and freedom of speech

My husband and I have a subscription to Free Inquiry. Unfortunately, I’m behind in my reading because apparently I’d rather waste time on Facebook than read. But my job is giving me the chance to catch up (in between answering the phone), so yesterday I grabbed the closest issue I could find, which just happened… Continue reading Tolerance and freedom of speech


The difference between Isis and the Islamic State

I work as a temp. At my job site I got a question about a bumper sticker I have on my car. This guy doesn’t know me – in fact, I don’t even know his name yet (only been at the job site five days now, and people come and go, and I’m not really… Continue reading The difference between Isis and the Islamic State


My take on the Duggars

I have two new readers as of a few days ago. Hi, Mom and Dad! I actually have a great relationship with my parents. If they harbor any disappointment that I’ve turned out not exactly the way they wanted, they don’t really express it. And for that I’m immensely grateful. I don’t have to have… Continue reading My take on the Duggars

The power of religion

Warning: strong language. I have a website, or I should say I’m maintaining a website. Only I do a bad job at it. It’s been two years since I even touched it, and even longer since I uploaded changes. The creator died and I took over the site, and I have all kinds of excuses… Continue reading The power of religion

Welcome to the craziness that is me

Hi and welcome. I’ve contemplated doing a blog for a while now, but wondered if I had anything useful to say. We’ll find out together. My Twitter bio says I’m “part atheist, part Kemetic.” I’ve been this way for some time, really, sometimes secular, sometimes religious. It’s very situational. Is that a bad thing? Maybe,… Continue reading Welcome to the craziness that is me
