Thanks on this Darwin Day

Darwin Day 2016

Happy Darwin Day! A chance for all to remember intellectual courage and scientific brilliance. For me, a chance to remember how evolutionary biology was used to treat Paisley and retrieve her from oblivion, 5 years ago this week. Paisley is perfect today.  Thanks to all the docs, thanks to all the nurses, and thanks to Charles.

  2. Matt & Janelle,

    I read through this again. More tears as I remember what our family was going through at the very same time you were writing this series about Paisley and for what you all went through. ❤

    It was our daughter-in-law, hers was viral but it was all very serious and took some time for a proper diagnosis. She recovered but it was such a terrible time as we waited on the doctors and medical personnel to solve the puzzle. She's now the mommy of two. 🙂

    Again, thanks for this story. Seeing Paisley here warms my heart in every way.

I don’t want to start a class war; it started a long time ago and, unfortunately, we are losing.

My freedom from spiritual abuse happened when I walked away from the abusers. My healing and recovery from the complex trauma of spiritual abusers, spiritually abusive faith and toxic religion happened while I was still a Christian and continues to this day. My deconversion came later after many many years of studying the Bible, Christian apologetics, cults and spiritual abuse. When I realized that the Bible is not the inerrant Word of God, the only honest thing I could do was to stop calling myself a Christian. ~ Zoe
