Raised as a Catholic, I began exploring outside perspectives during college and eventually became an atheist. I invite you to hear and critique my reasons for that transition, as well as join me on my journey as I continue to learn ever more and more about …well, everything!
Ok, only everything that interests me. I have finite time, after all. In general, I will be focused on science and Christian apologetics. I may eventually branch out to refuting arguments from other religions, but as an American, my exposure is mainly limited to the wide variety of Christians.
I’m currently not aiming for a particular posting schedule, although I have “publish at least one post” as a daily goal. As I have a day job and certain social obligations, and wish to produce high quality content, I might go a few days without posting. I might also post several times within a day. See my latest update regarding the posting schedule here. The best way to be sure not to miss a post is to subscribe by email or rss (links in the sidebar, which should display below content on mobile devices).
On that note, while I appreciate those who take the time to comment and will always read each one, I will not always respond, especially not right away. Sometimes, I simply won’t have time; sometimes, the comment is an attack on myself or an argument I didn’t make and therefore isn’t worth responding to; sometimes, my response simply wouldn’t add to the discussion or I just don’t have anything to say; sometimes, I am saving my response for another post or series of posts. I will not be censoring any comment simply because it is an attack or a disagreement, however. I do consistently forget I even have a spam queue, so comments could easily be stuck there.
A few samples:

For my outline of a few reasons I’m not Christian, check out my second post.
In this post, I reflect on my transition from Catholicism to atheism and whether I chose hell.
I’m particularly proud of my argument that liberals can’t be Catholic. I’d like to expand it to book length someday.
I also think I did a good job discussing the Problem of Evil.
Also, I have a growing collection of book reviews in the Rebecca Reads section. This will mostly be non-fiction, but nothing says I can’t do The Lord of the Rings if I want.
