I've been updating my blog and I have wanted to post a link to RD's site and Pharyngula. It took time for me to figure out how to do that plus the fact that I stopped writing for a long period of time.
I recently lost a friend to leukemia and it made me think of the theist belief of the after life. Before my friend died, he promised to let me know if and when it happened. He did, under weird circumstances which are too personal to detail. Not talking about anything spiritual here. He also promised to visit me from the other side. I was actually hoping he would show me any sign that there is something out there. Alas, there's none.
Anyways, I'm here in Seoul and I've been trying to find like-minded atheist. I just joined Pinoy Atheist but they're based in 'Pinas.
I've had a lot of experience with theists here. There's a group of Christians, from Church of God i think, who wouldn't stop coming to my place. There's a Jehovah's witness lady who lives near my place who gives me pamphlets every time she sees me. I toss them away as soon as she's out of sight. Dealing with these kind of people takes patience. At first I tried to be polite. Even told them I'd visit the church when I have the time just so they'd leave me alone. These days, I don't do that anymore. I tell them flat out that I'm an atheist. I get the same reaction every time. Like, "What? Why? God have mercy on you!" .. For some reason their reaction always makes me laugh inside.
