Hi, my name is Matt.
I was fortunate enough to be born and raised with the good fortune of not being indoctrinated into any particular religion, despite the fact that I was born and raised in the heart of the Bible Belt. Now, I’m in my 20s, and atheist, the proud owner of a Masters Degree, and an outspoken critic of religion and Magical Thinking.
Freedom of Religion doesn’t mean that we can be insulated from ideas we disagree with, but it’s a blade that cuts both ways. While I have to suffer the slings and arrows of religious loudmouths of all stripes, the foundations of the various religions (both the philosophical and the dogmatic) are all fair game for relentless rhetorical assault by anyone with the wherewithal and cojones to put themselves out there. I intend to do just that.
And yes, I am not using my full name or a picture of myself. I am currently looking for work, and I do not want anything written here to harm my employment prospects. Cowardly? Well, yeah, but it’s an unfortunate side-effect of having an online presence.
