Make sure to subscribe to me on YouTube. I make a ton of great content and am hoping to reach 3,000 subs by Christmas. Thank you in advance! Much love to you all!
Thank you to everyone who has followed my blog. I want you all to know how much i truly appreciate you and how much enjoyment I have had bringing these articles to you on a nearly daily basis. Since I’m entering the realm of video production, I will have less time to write. I’m not going to stop writing altogether because I love it. However there will be less articles written throughout the week in order to give me more time for video and voice recording as well as all of the editing involved in getting a video put together.
So tonight I thought I would give you a layout for how these changes are going to affect the blog.
Video Production will be as follows:
1 or 2 short videos per week.
A Pentecostal Atheist Bible Study will be a Bi-Weekly video.
Satanic Sunday is now going to become a Bi-Weekly video.
(The two Bi-Weekly videos will alternate so one week I will release a Bible Study and the next week I will release a Satanic Sunday post.)
Tuesday Nights: Unmasking Doctrine
Thursday Night: Inoculation Against Indoctrination
Friday Night: Videos of The Week
Free-Thought Friday: Guest Blog when I have a submission available to post
Just a Thought: These will be Memes that I found funny or thought-provoking.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the new schedule and continue following this blog. Thanks again!

So here I would like to share a few of my favorite blogs to read. I’ll separate them into a few categories. This list will be updated frequently so check back from time to time to see what’s new. If you’re not on here yet and feel you should be, send me a message. As I said this list will be constantly evolving and so if it’s not here today it could be tomorrow. Check out these Blogs, you will not be disappointed.
Atheism – If you enjoy them please Follow and share.
Autism/Aspergers – If you enjoy them please Follow and share.
YouTubers – If you enjoy them please subscribe.
Robert W Lester– Great source for videos on cult beliefs and new age garbage.
Staggerson Jagz– Absolutely hilarious videos that really contain some good info as well.
Hugo and Jake– Silliness and fun, love their atheist bible study videos.
Logicked– Great source for spasm causing humor and theist takedowns.
Holy Koolaid– For an NPR style compassionate atheism, look no further than holy koolaid, he’s funny and informative. Love this guy
Cosmic Skeptic– If only I had been this logical and rational when I was his age, could have saved me countless years of delusions.
Rationality Rules– Debunking videos, Rationality Rules pulls no punches and really gets to the bottom of why these beliefs are ridiculous.
Anti-Ordinary– Great YouTuber who brings light to both atheism and lgbtq issues. She is hilarious and absolutely awesome!
Godless Engineer– Brutality with a Beanie, seriously check this guy out! Also found on this channel is the new KC’s Corner, can’t wait to see more from her.
Isethoriginal– A great source of hilarious response videos. Definitely well worth the subscription.
Godless Cranium– One of the nicest YouTubers with the most brutal use of logic and reason. GC is absolutely amazing!
Rachel Oates– I think this is Cosmic Skeptic in an alternate universe, I don’t have any proof yet but this is fact. lol
Jackson Wheat– I really don’t know how I went so long without knowing this guy existed, if you don’t automatically go to this guys YouTube page and subscribe then I don’t know what is wrong with you.
AronRa– This guy is so fucking smart it hurts. I hope you’ll check out his series on the Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism.
The Atheist Voice– Some great videos from a friendly face. Well Spoken and always interesting.
Shannon Q– The newest YouTuber on my list. Shannon doesn’t have many of her own videos up on this page yet but she has been featured in several videos that I have really enjoyed as of late. She is also a genuinely nice person. You should Subscribe!
Paulogia– Former Mennonite if I’m remembering correctly, Paulogia is amazing. His Ham and Aigs videos are hilarious, I also like how he takes to some of the denominations that are seen as more liberal or nicer than the more fundamentalist of faiths.
Telltale Atheist– Former Jehovah’s Witness, if there is one thing that I can say about TellTale is that he truly knows what he is talking about and that his drawing skills are truly inspiring. I get lost in the artistic qualities of his videos. Check him out!
InaneDragon– The dragon gets a plus for just how enjoyable I find his videos to listen to. Carl Sagan has a voice that just calms your mind and InaneDragon has the same ability. Please check him out!
So I’ve been writing again which is good and I hope you’ve enjoyed the newest articles from myself, Jennifer, and all the others who have submitted entries. I’ve had some new ideas that I will explore over the coming weeks.
1.) BS News report
This is a satirical take on the news of the week from my own unique point of view.
2.) The return of A Pentecostal Atheist Bible Study
3.) Deep Thoughts
Subjects may include science, medicine, paradoxes, riddles, basically anything that gets me thinking.
Anyway, keep on the lookout for these new articles as well as other posts in the future.
Thank you so much to everyone who has read so far, I appreciate you all.
Side note: What would you like to see more of in this blog. Any suggestions and help will be greatly appreciated.
So to start, I’d just like to say thank you to everyone that has read this blog consistently over the last several months. I hope that you will continue to read in the future. If you have read my recent posts you will know that my life has been turned upside down a bit and I’m having a bit of an existential crisis. I’ve been a jumble of emotions, which is odd for me, and I’ve had great difficulty putting my thoughts together over the last few weeks, this has been especially hard in trying to keep up with the daily schedule that I laid out awhile back. So with that said, this blog is going to go into a new direction.
Have no fear, you will still see all of the articles that I have been writing here but they will not be added in the weekly format. I love writing but I find that the quality of my writing goes down greatly when I try following a format. Thinking, it’s Monday so I need to write this article destroys my motivation many days, which I believe shows in the writing.
So from now on, I will write what I want, when I want to write it. We will still have Wednesday Woo written by my wife and Free-thought Friday, written by a guest blogger, but outside of that the articles will be more off the wall and hopefully better written.
Thank you once again to everyone that has read so far.
Probably going to take a day off today from blogging. Head is killing me this morning and I just don’t feel so well. If I post anything it will be later tonight.
Thank you to everyone who reads this blog.
So now that I have finished the entries to my journey, you might be wondering, where does this blog go from here? Never fear, this blog will still be chock full of daily content for your viewing pleasure. Entries will mostly follow a weekly format as described below.
Monday: Extra-Biblical Teachings/Crazy Christians/Strange Bedfellows
Tuesday: An Aspie In Iowa (Posts dealing with Autism/Aspergers)
Wednesday: Wednesday Woo & Strange Questions
Thursday: Arguments Against Atheism
Friday: Free-Thought Friday & Eat Me
Saturday: Something Different Saturday
Sunday: Satanic Sunday & A Pentecostal Atheist Bible Study
I will also write various posts as they come to me. I love writing and will continue to fill this blog with interesting tidbits that you might find both entertaining and informative.
Thank you so much for following this blog and for your continued readership, I appreciate each and ever one of your comments, your likes, and your questions. It has been a wild ride so far and I have loved every minute of it. You readers are fucking awesome!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Brothers and Sisters, Friends, Comrades, Countrymen, and Godless heathens like me, I welcome you to my new blog.
So to give you some background information. For nearly a decade I was a Pentecostal minister. Soon I will share the complete story of my path from faithful to faithless but today I just want to briefly express my gratitude to anyone who takes the time to read this blog as well as give some idea as to what exactly is the purpose of this blog.
I don’t exactly know where to start other than to say I want to offer my own spin on faith and how to overcome some of the obstacles you might face in day-to-day life. I want to offer a glimpse into the mind of someone who once followed a very fundamentalist lifestyle. Most importantly I want to make people laugh, smile, and feel better about the choices they make in their lives. Life is far too short to waste even a single moment of it.
I also want to spread the idea that you can be an Atheist and not have to leave the area. In the short time since I left faith behind me I’ve seen numerous people in the atheist community leaving for seemingly greener pastures. This however seems to do a great disservice to the rest of the people in the area you left. We need role models in our communities that children can look up to. We need voters to fight back against the power grab that religion has undertaken. Last but not least we need people to change the communities they come from, making the world a better place; doing it from within and not tucking our tails and running away from our problems.
So until my next blog I bid you adieu.
