Heathen ChristmasCanna Gitta Hallelujah?

It took me bloody long enough to do this. I have been talking about starting an atheist blog for some time now. I think it was Christmas Eve in a drunken conversation (read as: heathen Christmas) with my brother that I finally made the decision. Still, that was 3 months ago. Blah.

In the past 3 months, I have moved from a large urban centre on the West Coast of Canada, to a small rural town in the Southern Interior of BC. While we’ve yet to really meet anyone and get to know them, we have taken note of the numerous churches in a town of 12,000. The bells, they ring out across our little town too. We are clearly outnumbered, and Momma’s gonna need an outlet. And so,

So, who am I? I am a well-traveled, well-read extreme left atheist mother, wife and writer. I have a little dude about 5, a stepdaughter about 11, a rescue pup about 13 and a husband who likes to play the drums.

I was not born and raised anything in particular. I have Catholics in my family, plenty of Christians, been to churchy funerals and godly baptisms and holylike weddings and such. I’ve had Jewish, Muslim, Sikh and Hindu friends and boyfriends. But I’ve always found wonder in science, the universe and the natural world. I require empirical evidence to believe something and contrary to popular belief, this creates more mystery and wonder than a couple of old books will ever be able to.

If you want to yell at me, send me death threats, try to convert me or just cheer me on, you can email me at
