About Deity Shmeity

I decided to start writing Deity Shmeity as a semi-permanent record of my thoughts on matters some call divine. My thoughts, you see, have been scattered to the winds of Facebook, Google+ and Twitter; lost in the Hotel Messageboard where they can check in anytime they like, but can’t ever leave. From now on, I’ll be able to direct would-be trolls and flame-warriors here rather than debate anew...but I probably won’t.

Never Asked Questions (N.A.Q)

Who the hell are you?
I don’t believe in hell.

...who are you?
My name’s Grundy. Not my given name, but it’s what I go by on the Internets, so for SEO’s sake, it’s my name.

What religion are you?
Not applicable. I don’t believe in God, so in that way I’m an atheist. I don’t claim certain knowledge that there is no God, so in that way I’m agnostic. I prefer the term skeptic, even though it isn’t faith specific.

What religion were you?
I used to be a Christian Scientist and dabbled in Catholicism.

Why do you feel the need to promote non-belief? Are you trying to save people from non-hell?
It seems silly to believe in any of the world’s specific gods and I don’t want to think everyone is silly. If you’re a deist or pantheist or something, you may go about your business. Move along.

What’s up with the blog’s title and tag line?
Deity Shmeity sums up the silliness I mentioned above. The tag line refers to polls showing an increase in world-wide secularism. I’m projecting trends to the eventuality of everyone losing faith. I know this is an exaggeration, there will always be religious hold outs, but to acknowledge that would make a lousy tag line.

Have any other burning questions for me? Send them over to formspring. If they are asked frequently, I may even make a new page for them.

  1. I'm enjoying your blog, Grundy. So I've taken the liberty of adding your blog to my blogroll. You have visitation rights, of course. But your blog is on my roll now, and it will take a court order for you to get it back. So sorry.

  3. John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

  4. Luke 11:29 And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

  5. 1Corinthians 14:38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.
