I haven't been blogging as often recently. Instead, I've been going out in the evening trying to enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer. I went to another philosophy meetup yesterday. It was the annual "Philosophy of Sex" event, always a big turn out, although last year's was better in my opinion, because there was an open bar. I got to discuss the philosophy of sex with various strangers and a few friends I've come to know. Always exciting. I also met another atheist blogger named Dan Fincke who writes a blog over at the Patheos website called Camels With Hammers. Check it out.
I've got a lot of ideas brewing, although considering that last month I wrote more posts than the entire year of 2011, I kind of burned out. But only temporarily. I'm going to have a post coming up about whether atheism is self-defeating because a fundamentalist challenged me on it. There are other things on the horizon too. I'm actually trying to write a book! It's actually going to be a novel. It's a fictionalizes account of my life and it incorporates a lot of my philosophy on religion, sex, drugs, living and growing up in New York. It's actually very hard to write a book. So far I only have 14 pages and I've already burned out, but the inspiration comes and goes. It's going to be called "The Thinker". I really hope something can become of it and it turns out halfway decent, even if I end up being the only one that reads it.
