My name is Eric Drennen and I embrace many descriptors: father, son, husband, ex-husband, friend, atheist, anti-theist, secularist, humanist, freethinker, skeptic, barbershopper, sports fan, outdoors enthusiast, liberal, progressive, Democrat, and many more.
I am opinionated and outspoken. Deal with it.
I am not interested in debating the existence of God, Allah, Ba’al, Ra, Odin, Zeus, Thor, or any other of the myriad of deities that man has created in order to explain what it didn’t/does not yet understand. As far as I am concerned, that debate is over. Unless and until science presents scientifically valid evidence to support the deity hypothesis, I’m done with that conversation.
I believe that religious faith is the single most destructive force mankind has ever known.
I am a politics junkie. I love the game. I love discussions about what the direction of our country, and all of humanity for that matter, should be. I am not a wonk. The minutiae of policy – how to craft law in order to achieve the goal – is more than I have patience for.
I believe the modern Republican party has lost all understanding of what the word ‘conservative’ means.
