I find it interesting that what many call a "faith crisis" is what I consider a "reality epiphany."
I guess this blog entry is more of a rant than I originally wanted it to be when I started writing.
But, occasionally, there is a news item that gives me hope that humanity, however slowly, is turning away from the supernatural ghosts of the past. Here is a link to a news story of a group of a hundred people who en masse resigned from the Mormon Church. Welcome fellow realists. Turning away from supernatural deities and beliefs can lead to some uncomfortable conclusions, not the least of which is facing mortality rather than some kind of fake transition into a netherworld, or heaven, or some form of reincarnation. But, really, if you have any respect for the truth, isn't that, in the end, more satisfying than a comforting delusion?
