Yeah, I know. It’s been a while since an update. If you’ve actually been dropping by every once in a while and shaking your head in disapproval, I’m sorry. Here is a picture of a kitten.


Perhaps we can forgive and forget?

I’d like to start updating a bit more regularly now, and on some topics a little more diverse. There are really only so many ways one can say there is no god before it gets repetitive.


Discussions and debate have been occurring all over the blog, and while I’m having a blast, I’m going to have to set them aside for a while.

I’m visiting my neighbours to the south for another year of the fabulous Penny Arcade Expo (PAX). Yes, that very same video game convention brought to you by the degenerate, immoral, violence obsessed gamers that bring you the annual Child’s Play Charity.

Once I get back, I anticipate a lot of work, so I’ll catch up on all the discussions eventually — but not instantly. Carry on, and have a good time with it!

derek-beerfancier.jpgThings have been getting hot and heavy on this blog — lots of discussion about the origin of the universe, the purpose of life, and whether or not God exists.

So you know, business as usual.

I’m just taking a brief moment to plug my latest project:

It’s a casual beer blog, with a focus on local (Vancouver, BC) microbreweries and specialty craft brews. I don’t know what the numbers are when it comes to people that read atheism blogs and people that have an interest in beer tasting, but if you’re looking for something to read that doesn’t make you want to yell and scream at me, try Beer Fancier.*

But remember, it’s still a new kid on the block, so it might be changing over the coming weeks.

* Beer Fancier may make you want to yell and scream at me if you and I differ strongly on our beer preferences.


UPDATE: Now available in the iGoogle Theme Directory.

I created an iGoogle theme based on the the Mac OS X colour scheme. This was just a quick project so that my own iGoogle page would look more like the rest of my computer, but I thought others might want it as well. Read the rest of this entry »

Sacre-Couer Basilica, atop a hill in Montmarte, Paris

Hi there! Sorry for unannounced and extended hiatus of this website. I got tied up at work, and then left for Europe for most of the month.

I’ve just finally had a chance to look at the discussions that unfolded in my absence. I’ve tried to weigh in where I thought it was appropriate, but I’d like to give special thanks to Sara from la tua ucellucia, Ubiquitous Che from rhetoric sans pareil, and of course Justin from Life of a Christian College Student.

Well, aside from this one, of course.

I turn 23 today, so I’m taking the day off.

Yep, anyone that visits this blog on a semi-regular basis will notice that it has a new look.  A cleaner look.

I think the old theme was a bit cramped and busy – not to mention dark.  I used Apostrophic Labs’ Wellbutrin font for the logo, and the WordPress theme is a slightly modified version of Tarski.

Let me know what you think.


This blog is updated Sundays. Additional posts might show up on days that are not, in fact, Sunday.
