Some of my Favorite Blogs

Stupid crap I do

Stupid crap I do

I love to read blogs, and momentarily get a glimpse into someone else’s world. I read all types of blogs, and I wanted to share a few of my favorite ones with you. I’ll link each sub-header to their most recent post.

Not A Punk Rocker

I freaking love this blog. Even the tag line draws you in:

Embracing my dorkiness, embarrassing my kid & blogging for the hell of it.

This blog is full of different types of content and I always leave feeling entertained. So if you like a little bit of quirky fun, head on over to this blog and say hi.

Amusing Nonsense

This guy is on fire. He posts quite a bit and if you’re into exploring deeper subjects, such as religion and mental health, you can’t go wrong with this blog. The fellow who writes the blog goes by the moniker ‘siriusbizinus’ and he totally means it when he writes. Seriously, this guy blows me away with his posts.

Victoria N℮üґ☼N☮☂℮ṧ

Awesome blog that explores religion and the brain. Her posts are informative, well-written, entertaining and interesting. If you’re into neuroscience, religion, psychology and that sort of thing, definitely hop on over and check out her blog. I’m willing to bet you won’t be disappointed.

The Isaiah 53:5 Project

I followed this blog before, but today I published my first guest piece to this site. I think it went rather well. You can (shameless self-promotion is about to take place) follow the link if you’d like to check out my article. If you’re Christian, you’ve probably seen this blog or you’re already reading it avidly. I don’t agree with much of the content, but things have gotten a whole lot more interesting since James (the blog owner) took on board new guest bloggers. This blog has lots of content and differing viewpoints are always pretty cool.

A Tale Unfolds

This guy knows how to take pictures! Some of his shots are just amazing. Makes me wish I had some artistic talent, but alas…it’s not to be.

Did I mention he’s also a vocal critic of religion?

Finger Candy

I’ve never understood the whole finger nail thing, but this lady knows what she’s doing. Pretty much every day you can find cool nail designs on her site. I know my wife enjoys looking at them. If nail art is in your realm of things to do, you’ll want to check out her blog. Damn, even I sit and marvel at some of the cool designs.

Life After Doubt

I just recently found this blog and it’s hand down fascinating. You can read about her loss of faith and how religion has affected both her and her family. It’s a wonderful, wonderful blog and I hope you check it out.

So there’s my short list of blogs I really like. There are a whole lot more so I’ll probably put together another list in the future. Plus, I’m always finding new blogs to read.

If you’d like to share a link to a blog you really enjoy, please leave it in the comment section below. Hell, you can also lay down a link to your blog as well.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Unfortunately I am unable to interact on your posts.
    Here’s my comment on your first post …
    🙂

    It is sometimes difficult to remain civil when one knows that what is being proselytized is being indoctrinated into small children who have yet to develop critical thinking skills.
    Also, when faced with adult fundamentalists who generally know very little about the genuine history of their religion it makes for a frustrating, and unfruitful exchange.
    This scenario is made worse when one is actively told that one will be going to ”Hell” if one does not ”repent”.

    If fundamentalists were able to put to one side their faith for a few moments and discuss the topic based solely on verifiable evidence, discussion would be far more productive.

  2. I love the way this blog moves; not too fast, not too slow, GC. Sometimes it takes hours to pore over the content of some of the busier blogs, and let’s face it, life is too short most days. However I do have one other that I visit regularly:

    Jenny Lawson: she’s funny, fragile, sees things from a very different perspective Worth the trip, Id say.

  3. GC, I read your guest post. Well done. This stood out:

    “On a personal level, I try to discuss matters of faith without directly trying to attack the other person on a personal level”

    I think that even if you try your best to not to “attack on a personal level”, your most devout may still perceive it as a personal attack. Psychologist Cordelia Find wrote an excellent book titled “A Mind of its own: How Your Mind Distorts and Deceives”, and shes light on terror management and death anxiety. She wrote that magical thinking is sometimes a necessary delusion. She also wrote an article titled “The Vain Brain”. Fine asked the question: “What is it about our brains that makes them so loyal to their beliefs?”

    She further states: “Part of this attachment may be because there is a sense in which our important beliefs are an integral part of who we are. To bid a belief adieu is to lose a cherished portion of our identity.”

    I concur. It also helps to explain why deconversion can be so excruciating.
