Formerly blogged as Random Name.

I am a Radical Agnostic. I don’t know how the universe began. That’s the agnostic part. I don’t believe people should make up stories to explain things they don’t know or understand. That’s the Radical part.

    Saw your note at Joni Ruhs’ blog about the friend with the cat that chews wires. Tell her to get a bottle of Bitter Apple at the pet store and put it on all the wires. Works like a charm. I’ve got nine cats. I know.

    Never heard of a Radical Agnostic before. I’m an absolute atheist. Don’t believe in gods, fairies, demons, devils, leprechauns, vampires, ghosts… but I love watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel and others in the genre.

    Don’t worry about the beginning of the universe. It happened when Sam the Baker created the perfect bagel and exploded from happiness. The universe is bagel dough.

    Cats: I like cats, and they like me, because I am allergic to them. I visit my daughter’s cats, but I don’t live with them. Radical Agnostic: Hey, that’s my thing. Respect freedom of irreligion, OK. Anyway, I figure there might be a God out of HP Lovecraft. Cats and wire: That friend and her cat were twenty years ago. The electricity probably died, long ago.

    Vanity Press, I’ve read several of your comments on World Magazine’s website, and I was just curious what your motivation is in commenting so frequently on there. Would you consider yourself an agnostic “evangelist”? Are you trying to shed some critical light on Christian-biased articles?

    (Just b/c written communication doesn’t convey tone of voice/questions, my tone is simply inquisitive)

    The reason I’m curious is that some agnostics visit Christian websites occasionally just to give some critical, thought-provoking feedback, but they seem to eventually move on to other things realizing that some people will just never “get it.” I was wondering if you invest so much time attacking something in which you don’t believe…why you don’t invest that time in something you do believe unless you really care that people face the facts and consider the truth. Thanks!

      I’ve thought about my participaton at worldmagblog, which is indeed eccentric, quite a bit, but never focused my thoughts enough to write about it in detail. I plan to work on writing about his peculiar long term activity as a project. I appreciate your comment and will let you know as soon as I have prepared a reply.

  6. Hey, I just read that you’re taking a break from Renaissance Guy. I know how you feel and I just want to commend you for a long period of reasonable opposition to him.
