Hi my name is Mike Beyer operating online since 2007 as MindsiMedia. One of the slogans Iv'd used over the years is "third eye for the human race". Which means there's not some little niche I fit into. I'm interested in movies, politics, history, music. You can say I'm a cultural historian of the 20th century.

An Atheist Touched By The Hand of God Part 1
I am still an Atheist,
God does not exist
Organized religion is a crutch and a
The closest thing to God right now is
Our power has grown so great that we
can destroy all life on the planet.
What does that make us?
And if we use this power to bring hell
to earth what does that make us?
I know this because God revealed it to
A dozen years ago I was touched by the
hand of God and over the course of a couple of hours I was granted
vision and shown a path and given a simple message to tell.
I'm an Atheist so after wrestling with
what had happened I ignored it.
Since then my life has fallen apart.
At the time I was a happily married man
with a great family and a nice home.
Since than my life has been sucked into
a whirlpool of depression, debt and divorce.
Maybe I should have listened and done
what I was told.
Maybe I should have lived with the
courage of my convictions instead of always taking the easy way out.
I've fallen, had to learn some hard lessons and now am on my way back.
But I'm not there yet.
The truth is I can't live like I have
been anymore because I feel I'm not living only existing.
So today I step out and begin to
explain how an Atheist can speak for God.
I am to preach a gospel of peace and
love. One that is rooted in self control and personal responsibility.
So here is my first message. It's
simple but one that has a powerful ability to transform like a wheel.
“Our lives have the meaning we give
them and the choices we make about how we live are important.”
This summer there has been a string of
senseless gun killings not that there is ever any shortage of them.
And I can't just stand by so many people are unafraid to express
their frustration and fear through violence. They feel like they have
no power so they must lash out and show the world their hate. I feel
the need to go in the opposite direction because I feel the
frustration and rage because we live in a society that is filled
insanity fueled by fear and hate. But I don't want to lash out at
people I want to reach out and find a way to express my love.
Now I have put myself on a path where
it will end up is not important because we all end up at death. The
importance of the path we take is the journey it takes us on. If it
all sounds kind of vague and simplistic. Well I'm just getting
started here with this but I needed to just stand up and publicly
declare myself. Trust me there is much more to come.
Some time this weekend I will post the
story of the August evening thirteen years ago when an Atheist was
touched by the hand of God.
This will not be the sole topic of my
future postings. The rest of the MindsiMedia collection of stories, videos
and songs will continue. There is just a larger story I need to be
telling and so it begins. This is dedicated to all the victims of violence.
