Let us begin with an ending. Imagine, you wake up one day. Your senses tell you that this is certainly your home. This is your bed you’re getting out of, and your blankets that you’re pushing aside. The floor feels the same under your feet, the lights are switched off from the night before, the sunlight filters in through the windows just like it normally does at this time of day in this time of year in this sort of weather. You didn’t feel disoriented when you got out of bed because you got up on the same side you always do. You don’t stub your toe on the dresser when you pass it by because the dresser hasn’t moved.

Still, something isn’t right. It’s subtle. Were your legs always this heavy? Or did it always take this long for your eyes to adjust? Or did you always feel this tired? Are you absolutely sure the walls were always this dull?

And then you see the corpse, and the corpse is your own."

THE CHILD OF THE HYPOCRITE

A lament for the scapegoat of atheism in a powerless church culture.

[In Progress]

"A man attempts to build a house of cards. After a few  failed attempts, he gives up in frustration, silently blaming the cards when his own unsteady hands are at fault.

 

A young cobra and its nestmates hatch alone. They disperse into the wild, having never known their parents. The young snake crosses paths with his father. Neither recognize each other and the father eats the son, not knowing or caring that it was his own offspring.

 

A woman has a child. Although she is a woman, she is not mature, and although she has given birth, she is not a mother. She gives the child its most basic needs as society demands, but she gives nothing else. She throws herself into escapist behaviors and ignores her responsibilities. She is tormented by her own unsolved problems and by the many issues that she creates, but she will not own up to either, and instead she takes her frustrations out on the child.

As the child gets older and learns more about the world, it realizes that something isn’t right. Fearful love becomes apathy, then resentment, then anger. One day, the mother fights with the child and the child stands up to her, insults her, and leaves. The mother is blindsided. She is angry at how ungrateful the child is. As the years go by, the child never returns, and the mother becomes increasingly resentful of her child’s supposed impudence. The mother disowns the child, and treats the child as an enemy, never once acknowledging that she failed to be a mother.

 

This is how the atheist comes to be."
