Spiders and dark rooms suck and all, but the most bone-chilling things in life are usually those we can’t see at all. The biggest culprit? Not knowing what’s going to happen next. People hate uncertainty, and how could we not? If we aren’t completely sure how to plan for the future, how can we possibly… More »
I can’t really remember the last time that I went to any kind of church service. It may have been May 2012, at my cousin’s wedding. It was shortly after that that I started my path down the atheist rabbit hole, studying the art of Felix Gonzalez-Torres and, eventually, falling out of my faith.

The Daily Beast reported on tragedy yesterday: Homecoming Queen Alyssa Ramirez lost her life after a flood in Texas swept her car away on her way home from prom. The details are pretty heartbreaking. The teen was only two miles away from home when she was caught in a flash flood. She called 911 and… More »

I once spent a 4th of July weekend with about 15 hardcore evangelical Christians. (Ex-Mr. Jessica’s sister was a born-again.) Explaining to some of the women what kind of website I write for proved to be awkward. But when I told one woman that The Frisky was similar to Cosmopolitan magazine, she exclaimed, “Oh, I… More »
This is interesting: a new study done by Trinity College confirmed that more women than men believe in God. In a survey of Americans who claim to be unaffiliated with any religion, 19 percent of men were nonbelievers while only 12 percent of women were. These stats are particularly ironic because, historically, major religions have… More »
