The Yellow Brick Road…part one

I have often read atheists portending that the belief in the concept called God is a product of dissatisfaction in this current life. Indeed this was my beginning. My childhood was dominated by an angry violent woman. Not only did this experience lead me to wonder if god existed but also to examine what made…

preamble on posts to come

My God; Stop Closing Their Minds!

“I don’t believe in God Lees” My god-son, seven years of age, announced this as I gave him a hug hallo. I asked him why. In summary, his religious teacher at school had dished out the dogma of ‘you’re a sinner and god loves you so he sent his one and only son to suffer…
