Yet another blog...why?

A thus is born another "post-Mormon" blog. Of course, I'm not post-Mormon. Not technically, and not, honestly, at heart. As much as I loathe some of the teachings of the church, I know that most of the members are good, honest people. In fact, when I get to know most of them more deeply, I find that they tend to agree with me on lots of the questionabl teachings of the church. I have to believe there's room in my church for divergent beliefs, even if it's in a bit of a dark ages right now.

So, why this blog? Simple. Since coming "out of the closet" to my wife about a year ago, I find that I think constantly about issues of belief, faith, epistemology, apologetics, etc., but I feel like most of my thoughts and insights slip away into the mist of memory. Or they get captured across 50 blogs and forums across the Internet. This is my way of consolidating that--a public journal of sorts. An entirely selfish endeavor.

That said, I have found many of the self-directed musings of others very helpful during my journey up out of Mormonism, so if this blog ends up serving that purpose for any of my readers, I will feel that I have done some good. It's nice not to be alone.
