What happened to him? He changed his faith to Atheist right before his absence, just hope he is doing ok. I really enjoyed reading his commentary on various issues.

He's bounced back and forth along all points on the spectrum between full Orthodox faith and atheism for as long as I've known him on this forum.

He's probably fine. Not posting here for a while is more likely a sign of health.

As for his atheist status... well, 10 bucks says that will last about 2 weeks.

Actually it lasted about 2 minutes, I just posted that out of frustration (mostly out of my own inability to climb out of the hole I've dug myself into). It was just one of those "Oh screw this, why do I even bother? I'm never going to get anywhere" moments. I probably should have come back 2 minutes later and changed it, though, rather than letting it stay up a month and a half.  And my daughters are doing well... Athy just turned 6 on June 25th Smiley
