About

My ordinary blog about my ordinary life has been taken over by a long book review.

The book review started when I left the religion and beliefs of Christianity, after years of being raised in a Christian environment and trying hard to believe what I was supposed to believe. It was a long and difficult process. Several months ago, my father asked me to read the book I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist, by Norman Geisler and Frank Turek. I began to write a brief reply, which soon ballooned into a chapter-by-chapter response. After a few pages, it depersonalized from a letter into a review that I felt was appropriate to share with anyone who might have an interest in this book, popular apologetics, or deconversion in general. So far, I feel that the reasons to remain agnostic are strong, but that the carefully constructed (and largely extra-Biblical) framework that Geisler and Turek have built up to defend theism falls apart when the god of the Bible is introduced.

When I’m not blogging, I’m usually complaining about defensible space or flight delays at the airport or how I’ve gotten out of shape. I like food. Both my dog and my cat are named Sam.
