If The Curator Gods Really Exist Tell Them I’m An Atheist

4 X 90,000 = 360,000

I love easy math.

But just as important, I get to read a lot.

Reading so many thought provoking articles from each of you is a pure delight. The same goes for being able to share my thoughts, my stories, my feelings and yes even my frustrations. It’s what keeps me from curling up in a fetal position in the evenings.

If Curation Gods Really Exist Tell Them I’m An Atheist

That’s right, I’m coming out of the closet on this. I’m admitting to everyone I don’t believe Curation Gods exist. Just because many of you have testified about the wondrous power of the Curation Gods doesn’t make it real for me.

I, the King Kong doubting Thomas, the Madeline Murray O’hare of the Medium world do not believe Curation Gods Exist.

At least on the planet where I live and write.

Which leads me to believe the Gods of Curation don’t exist. They’re a figment of imagination, a myth perpetrated by the Medium back office, a Griffin which exists only by virtue of the spoken or written word.

And as such I’ve become an atheist.

I have to write. I have to.

Just because I’m an atheist when it comes to the Curation Gods doesn’t mean I won’t continue to write. I’m mean come on, Madeline Murray O’hare didn’t believe in God, but she continued to enjoy the wonders our supreme deity provided each day until she was murdered.

Gulp, maybe I should reconsider using her as a comparison?

Okay, Madeline notwithstanding, I’m going to keep pounding the keys and posting stories; letting my thoughts rip every day like clockwork.

I’m sorry Medium Curation Gods, I’m so…

Wait, I don’t believe in the Curation Gods, so why the hell am I apologizing?

Yeah, you folks keep telling me the Curation Gods exist and I don’t know, maybe they do. For now, I just ain’t buying it. But who knows, maybe one day I’ll finally have that epiphany. You know, like when God struck Saul down on the road to Damascus? Saul was a big time hit man for the High Priests. He had a hand in eliminating a lot of Christians in his time, until God blinded his happy ass for three straight days.

Soon afterward, Saul became Paul and a believer.

Maybe it’ll be like that for me if the Curation Gods really do exist.
