Due to constant misunderstanding with my name I feel the need to change my intro. I am hateful, hateful of religion. I hate what religion does to people and that people use it as an excuse to not think. I have spent many years of my life as an Atheist and have learned to handle my emotions, but no other word quite describes how I feel towards religion short of hate. I am outspoken, open minded, and will share my opinion. If you're looking for someone who will always agree with you, that won't be me.

I posted this picture several years ago but today is an important day to remember it. The man picture above was Pat Tillman, today marks ten years since his unfortunate passing. Pat Tillman was a man that played for the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL and stepped away from an extremely lucrative contract in order to become an Army Ranger and assist in Afghanistan. Among the many things that Pat was known for was his open and outspoken Atheism. Sadly this man’s life was cut short in Afghanistan and the official reason was stated to be “friendly fire”. He was killed well not engaged with the enemy at all but “accidentally”, as the story goes, by one of his own. Of course this story has sparked many questions and also spawned many conspiracy theories, some being more outlandish than the others, but one that has often come up is that it may have been due to his outspoken non-belief. This hero, this warrior, walked away from a life most of us could never dream of to bravely serve when he felt he was called to do so and in the end he may have paid the ultimate price not in battle, but simply because of who he really was. Gone but not forgotten - Pat Tillman 11/6/76 - 4/22/04
