About

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 more introductory material, go to my first post.

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.

There’s even a short story about a grizzly wizard. (Short stories I post to this blog will be in the Rebecca Writes category.)

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.

Please explore the other links in the header for a better grasp at who I am and what I do. Enjoy!

  1. Yo. I saw somebody link to my website in response to your blog. I just wanted to say that I am always looking for intelligent non-believers to come on my podcast. Send me an e-mail if you have any interest.

  2. Hi – I noticed that you took the time to read through most or all of my personal deconversion story. It is so kind of you to take time out of your life to hear a little about mine. I’m humbled and flattered. I’m looking forward to perusing your blog too. Thanks so much for reading. Cheers 🙂
