Adventures in parenting without superstition.

Faith is not a virtue

About Me

Let’s start with Geography – I guess you could tell I’m not American by the spelling of “Mum”!

I AM a stay-at-home Aussie Mum, who has always been without belief in any god, despite doing 5 years hard time in a Methodist Boarding School here in Australia.

By some combination of luck & good judgement, I met & fell in love with a man who is similarly atheist, to whom I am married & who, if referred to at all will likely hold the moniker of “Godless Dad”.

Our awesome daughter is currently godless, by virtue of the fact that she is just 4 ½ years old at the commencement of this blog & has not been introduced to religious indoctrination of any kind – until now (read “Why the Blog?” for further information”).  Maybe I’ll call her “Godless Girl”……

Why the Blog?

I think I’ll put this in point form for now, because it’s likely that each of these reasons will morph into a blog post all their own.  If this blog has any longevity, I expect it will change over time too.

  • A friend pointed out to me that my atheism seems to have become much more important to me since I became a mother – and she’s right.  I would really like to explore that, if only to give myself a better understanding.

Why Anonymous?

As even a casual perusal of this blog will reveal that I do not in any way conceal my atheism in everyday life, blogging anonymously may seem a little strange or redundant.

There really is only one reason for that & it has to do with the “Mum” part:  My daughter goes to a religiously affiliated school.
