“Every creation has a creator; therefore God exists.” Way to beg the question, dude!

Just a quick one today.

I saw this argument several times in the last few days, and I have also seen it many more times presented in debate groups by simple minded and ignorant believers over the last couple of years, so maybe it’s time to write about it? 160 more words

Hola mi gente,
The HillBillies (Clinton supporters) have been practically screaming in an orgiastic frenzy that Angela Davis has endorsed Hillary Clinton. That’s bullshit.

Finding recovery in purpose and purpose in recovery

This draft was started just a few months ago.  It’s like recovery inception, which kept getting too wordy for my inner perfectionist.  So, this is fair warning, I’m not editing this post once it’s finished and it might get rambly. 609 more words
