My name is Robert Kortus. I am a husband, father, music lover, beer connoisseur, book addict, blogger, atheist/humanist – broadcasting from the armpit of America
I grew up on the west coast, near Seattle, WA, and was heavily influenced by the culture and music of the great Northwest. I currently resides in Sioux Falls, SD with my wife and two children. In my free time I enjoy art, music, documentaries, science, working with rescue dogs, and making (and drinking) beer.
I grew up in a fundamentalist Christian home and was home-schooled for a number of years. After rebelling in high school, I was shipped off to a Christian college in the Midwest where I became a devout “follower of Jesus”. After about a decade, I began to have serious doubts and misgivings that I decided to explore.
I de-converted from Christianity over a period of two years. This blog chronicles that journey and my life now as an atheist/naturalist/humanist living in the Midwest.
