You have to start somewhere, so here it goes. Recently, I attended the Reason Rally in Washington, D.C., followed by the national convention of American Atheists. I was inspired by the many amazing people that I met, including Thunderf00t, AronRa, Cristina Rad (ZomGitsCriss), PZ Myers, and others, who I felt like I knew by reading or viewing their blogs/vlogs. I felt privileged to meet Richard Dawkins and James Randi, two personal heroes and soldiers on the front line of the battle against Magical Thinking.
I was impressed by their openness and desire to promote the cause of Freethought. I have always viewed myself as a Freethinker, notwithstanding the fact that I was ostensibly a member of the Mormon church, a colossal mindfrak virus that has captured and brainwashed many otherwise intelligent people.
I have mostly confined my discussions on the subject of Freethought to groups of similarly minded colleagues and law partners. A few years ago, I started posting on a number of discussion boards related to Mormonism. However, inspired by the giants of the Freethought movement that I was recently privileged to meet, I have decided to create my own blog. I hope someday to write a book. However, in the meantime, a blog will have to suffice.
