This blog started out as a place where I could situate my ideas. I then realized, my ideas are invariably anti-religious. The more I think about religion, in and of itself, the more I want to vomit. Contrarily, as an ex-Christian, I am a biblical scholar of which, I spend vast amounts of time thinking about…religion, of all things. I feel there is a need for this. Society has to get past the religion debacle. I want to be a part of this social growth; I want to contribute to the bringing of humans into the world of reality and truth, even it can only be done from this blog, for now.
I’ve read many of the arguments that Atheists use, science and evolution, etc. I try to think about these continually, yet for me, as a literary scholar currently in graduate school, I stick with the text. I find religious texts both amazing and useful in pointing out the fact, that religion is based on written words, written by men with great rhetorical skills. Close reading of religious texts tells much, and that is what I hope to do. I know it’s offensive to pick apart a believer’s dearly beloved text — I realize that; but that’s all we have, and it has to be done, on an ongoing basis, so that the shift towards a society centered in realism can prevail and the people of the future will realize, religion is centered in the historic advent of myth making.
