I’m reading Michael Shermer’s Skeptic. I love this book. Chapter by chapter, it is both confirming and cleansing. I have a secret Instagram account where a photo of me reading this book has been posted, but I dare not post it to Facebook. Too many friends from the church, too many family, too many connections to the uber religious college I attended.
Speaking of friends from college, I stumbled across the profile of an old college friend who had unfriended me long ago. I don’t really know why. I sent him a friend request, and he surprisingly accepted. From his posts, I can tell that his journey has been similar to mine… by that I mean that he has moved from conservative to liberal…. from religious to secular. I admire his courage. The best I can muster right now is simply to not post anything religious or conservative in nature. Instead, I sometimes share subtle liberal jabs at the conservatives. That’s about it.
Did I mention that I went to school with Sarah Huckabee-Sanders? Boy, his she’s changed!
I apologize if my thoughts are jumbled. I’m actually sitting here right now trying to decide if I’m an atheist or not. I think I am. That adds a whole new wing to my liberal closet that I have to deal with, but now that I’m solidly in my mid-30s, I want to be honest with myself.
Your encouragement and support is appreciated.
