I am in love with Christopher Hitchens! I credit him and Richard Dawkins with saving me from superstition!


I have *fond* memories of being told that I would surely go to a cave full of fire and monsters to suffer for eternity if I did not believe in god. What a great thing to tell to a child who can barely tie his own shoes.


A man gone far too soon.


My father burned into me the concept of “the age of accountability” so much so that I would frequently wake up screaming from dreams of armies of demons thundering after me with fire in the sky and smoke in my eyes. I was horrified.


Religion fawked me up . Even though I left two years ago it still feels ‘real’ even though logically it makes no sense.
