After doing my half marathon in August, I decided I would like a change of scenery for a while. I didn’t want to get unfit again though, so I joined a local gym. I hadn’t been to the gym for quite some time. This gym was integrated with an aquatic centre too, so you get […]Read More My brutal gym regime
The other day I went to this hot air balloon festival with a Christian friend. It was reasonably enjoyable, but that’s not what this post is about. I went back to their house for a cup of tea afterwards, having a chat as you do, and the conversation somehow steered towards this transsexual person which […]Read More I am tired of this bigotry!
So recently I got a couple of strange text messages. Here is the first one which I will share with you today. I have censored out their identities because I don’t want anything to happen to them. Anyway, let’s roll! This is from an unknown number, which makes it all very strange. So Jesus is […]Read More Weird text messages I have been getting (silly rants).

How’s it going? Me: I’mmmm good I suppose. Stranger: Hi I’m Fred. *stretches out his hand to shake* […]Read More A Christian stranger asked me to join their ‘club’ (silly rants).
These topics seem to stir everyone up, both Christians and non-Christians. On the one side, Christians see the removal of prayer and religion in schools as a decline in moral values for society; many see it as a threat to their religion somehow. Yet on the other spectrum, we have many hard-line atheists determined to […]Read More Should religion and Creationism be taught in schools?
This is not going to be easy to explain, since it didn’t happen all at once. But if I could sum this up, I would say I lost my belief for intellectual reasons, and also moral problems that I came across in The Bible. Part One: The Seeds of Doubt. Back in high school, I […]Read More My Story (about leaving religion).
