The New Me -- (No I am not "born again")

I am not sure how to open this particular post, as I have not said much about my current personal life. I would hope that most of you out there are familiar enough with me to know that I am a nuclear engineer with a masters in health physics. Science is my life and my lifeblood. But as I live in Las Vegas, and just cannot bring myself to move anywhere else (with the sole exception of Albuquerque, NM), and there is virtually no need for science in LV. It is virtually impossible to get into the Nevada Test Site.

So, I have caved in. I am learning to be a craps dealer. That is the take. The give? Well, what can I say, I will be losing the long hair and comfortable clothes. But the math and the money works for me and my family.

I guess it will soon be time to update my picture to better represent the short-hair, clean-cut adult I am metamorphing into...

But do not fear. I will remain the pro-science nuclear geek who fights the absurdity that is Christianity you have grown to know and love. I just will now be hob-nobbing with showgirls instead of hazmat cowboys. (Hey maybe this won't be so bad after all...)

I'm tired of people like you with your "Live and Let live" creedo.
You're not living and let living you are taking people you disagree with to task on a blog, specifically people who believe in GOD.
You sir, are a hypocrite.

Oh really. So you have proof that I personally have forced some Christian to recant and become an atheist?

Let's look at the balance sheet:
Christians converting non-Christians to Christianity: over 1 billion and counting

Me converting Christians over to atheism: 0

I think my credo stands unchallenged.

"You're not living and let living you are taking people you disagree with to task on a blog, specifically people who believe in GOD."

Hey, Christianity just does not measure up in the realm of reason. It is myth, superstition, and rule-by-fear authoritarianism. I merely point out just how absurd it is, people like you still have the right (and always will as far as I'm concerned) to believe in and live by such preposterousness.

I guess next time I make it to Vegas I'll have to email you to find out which casino so I can stop in and introduce myself. I don't play craps or any of the other gambling games though... it's poker only for me.

Poor Annie,

Do you really have nothing better to do on Valentine's day than attack me, for the deeds of others?

I pity you.
