I’m not usually a fan of compartmentalization, so I’ve become more and more uncomfortable with the compartmentalization of my blogs: Leaving Eden as the serious, long-winded one about my Christian college experience and reasons for deconversion, and peaceful atheist as the lighter, calmer chronicle of my post-Christian exploits. (Don’t you just hate the expression “post-Christian”? Me, too. I really loathe it.)
So I’m merging them into one. Soon I’ll copy the entire Leaving Eden archive to peaceful atheist. I’ll continue to write the more serious, discussion-generating posts about my deconversion that I’ve been writing here, but they will be posted on peaceful atheist. At first, some things will be double-posted; eventually I’ll blog only at peaceful atheist. I want to rectify the brisk tones I’ve used on Leaving Eden while preserving the discussion and continuing to answer questions about my atheism on peaceful atheist. I know that Leaving Eden gets a lot more traffic than peaceful atheist, so I hope you’ll all follow me there.
You can now email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m going to continue to protect my internet anonymity, but if you are a Wheaton student or alum, or a frequent commenter, I will probably tell you who I am and friend you on Facebook if you email me.
Finally, thank you to everyone who has read, commented, and linked to Leaving Eden, especially over its long hiatus this year. My journey wouldn’t be what it is without you.
Wishing everyone a peaceful new year,
