We are a couple in our late 40′s / early 50’s who live in the southern United States. We have 8 kids between us. We were both married previously and all of our children (save one) are adults now. As we spend time together, we are often deep in conversation around a variety of topics which includes religion, sex, children, science, the environment, food, exercise, etc.
This blog started for Logan with a focus on his journey away from the Christian faith. We don’t set out to change minds. We don’t think we can. But we do believe there are many who are on a journey like we were, wrestling with doubt. It can be comforting to know you’re not alone. The struggles with doubt are common, and sometimes a person might arrive at a light-switch-flip moment of illumination because of the culmination of research and critical thinking that we go through. If our blog is of aid to you, we are truly glad.
“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge — even to ourselves — that we’ve been so credulous. “
