Please, I implore you….. please stop praying. If you haven’t noticed, it aint fucking working.
“God works in mysterious ways.”
Wow, he certainly does. So far his mysterious ways should lead any coherent person to ask God the following:

With each new mass killing of innocent people; the prayers ramp up, the social media profile pictures change and people everywhere blabber about change.
But guess what? Nothing…… fucking……changes. Your prayers are only useful for helping you feel better about yourself. Prayer does nothing tangible. It never has and it never will.
As long as people continue to be less educated, less informed and angry, none of this shit will change.
But don’t worry, Tim Tebow and Scott Baio will be speaking at the Republican National Convention……….. all of our troubles will be solved.

I think I was an atheist at an early age, but didn’t quite realize it then. For years I battled with believing and not believing.
I read the Bible quite a bit when I was younger and with each passage I read, the less I believed. For me, the Bible provided enough information for me to not believe in God. Continue reading →
