I am a former Protestant minister currently living in the southeastern USA. I am now an atheist, one who does not hold any belief in any god. If there is any divine or creative entity, I believe that he/she/it is probably conceived most accurately in deist terms. On Richard Dawkins’ 7-point scale of belief, I am a 6. This blog discusses my indoctrination into evangelical Christianity and my escape from that worldview toward a more enlightened, rational position. It is also a place for philosophical and political musings, and occasional attempts at humor.
