In the beginning was the word, and the word was...

...postponed until the next blog post ;-D

And what do we all have to look forward to? Well, quite simply, anything which comes to my mind at any particular time about the heated contemporary debate over the existence of God. I find it an absolutely fascinating topic and have been steeped in reading, watching and writing about this for the past few years.

What are my views? Well, let's first ask, what can you deduce from the title of this blog? Notice my particular choice in the label "a-atheist". Pretty silly, yep? Somewhat contrived? Witty (I would only hope so, though I shalln't hold my breath for praise)!

I chose this deliberately to make my position obscure, as it is actually a bit of a geeky jibe at those atheists who wish to use the word to mean "non-theist". There is much more to tell, but not right now. Trust me, I could write/vent on this for volumes!

Throughout this blog, I will be voicing my thoughts on the New Atheism and faith in general: religious and non-religious. Some days I shall be seething at the cult of Dawkins and his junk-food logic; other days I shall be fuming at Young Earth Creationists and fundamentalists who leave a bad taste in the mouth; and on the third day, I may say something different, nuanced, or even just nice!

One way or another, these are my thoughts on this subject, and you are all welcome to them!

Ciao until then!

(p.s. I beg your patience while I try to get my head round silly technical hitches, html or just general maintenance blunders which may present themselves - including finding the right colour scheme - thank you muchly)
