Just one guy here, but figuring that the probability of at least a couple more people out there with similar thoughts could warrant the more inclusive first-person plural ‘us’.
I’m a 24hour dad by trade, atheologian when i have time to read&think, and this is my blog on the intersections of atheism, daoism, lakotaism, humanism, christianity, marxism, liberal religion and Unitarian Universalism.
For background, i’m from Minnesota, live in Chattanooga, am married with 4 kids at home, got a minivan to drive the kids around in, & have been involved in things UU since hearing Mary Daly speak at the First Unitarian Society in Minneapolis and helping found the International Student Coalition for Liberal Religion at the University of Minnesota in 1982. Am a US Navy veteran, enlisted, served ComMidEasFor in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean as a TAD russian and farsi linguist, and NavSecGruDet in Spain as a russian navy radio traffic analyst, with later degrees in Spanish (BA UofM), Divinity (MDiv SKSM) and Religious Studies (MA UofM). Am a member of the UU Church of Chattanooga and the Chattanooga Humanist Assembly.
Some writing peculiarities that you’ll probably notice are that i follow the latin/spanish way of writing pronouns and adjectives in lower case – so much easier than germano-english capitalism, and that i don’t capitalize my name, for several reasons, including 1 not being a capitalist, 2 being a fan of ee cummings, and 3 being that my name is obviously european but my family is also native american, our mother being an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Tribe in North & South Dakota. And i do like to use spanish as a constant voice in my head checking, albeit in a very small way, the applicability of my thoughts in a different culture. and i like the ways that russian and spanish drop proper nouns when they’re implied/understood.
