Tumbling Into Tumblr

'Transcending Religion'
finding enlightenment in atheism

It was around the time that I took on a militant attitude on Facebook regarding my atheism that I opened Tumblr account. When a concerned friend saw how my anti-religious posts drew flak from several people in my FB friends list, she suggested I open a blog and post my rants there instead. Thus 'Transcending Religion' came into being. It took a while for me to decide to transfer all my atheism and religion - related FB posts here but when searching for old FB articles proved to be very infuriatingly tedious, I was convinced that Tumblr was indeed a better place for these posts.

My original intent was to make 'Transcending Religion' look like a guide for people wanting to transition out of religion. Doing so would have limited the general tone my posts so, I opted to allow myself to not be confined to an attempt to write one long narrative and just treat each blog post as an autonomous bit of expression. Thankfully, this plan seems to fit squarely with Tumblr’s functionalilties as well as with its reader base. Expect a mix of tones and angles in this blog, which incluide articles that educate, inspire, agitate, etc. 

It is my hope that readers of  would learn something from  'Transcending Religion' despite the rants. Or better yet, because of them.
