Hi, all. Just wanted to let you know that I'm doing ok, relatively speaking.

School has just been beating me up (only a couple of weeks to go this semester) and I haven't had much to say here. I'm so tired of theology, I completely burnt myself out and now it seems like the Problem of Evil is closer to completely destroying my faith than it ever has been. I can't even pray anymore.

Oh well, life goes on. I hope everybody is doing ok. I'll check in periodically.

Glad to hear you are more or less okay!

Don't let that "evil" get to you.  You are just tired and burnt out.

Don't despair.  Once classes are over, refocus and recommit!

Praying for you!

Thanks. I'm just so tired of being angry at God... Even if I stopped believing in Him I'd still hate Him it seems like.

I've hated many people I didn't believe in, often that's why I hated them. And they usually deserved it. For better and worse, believing in them or not had little consequence on their existence.

Hang in the buddy. I hope the worm turns for you.

I've taken to trying to swallow mine.
