Leave No Stone Unturned - An Easter Challenge For Christians -

Woman claims she has PTSD from Twitter and cyberstalking -
I’m normally skeptical of anything from this particular source. But having seen many of these tweets myself, I find the story at least somewhat credible. This woman appears to think that she has PTSD - not from the sort of trauma that would meet Criterion A of the PTSD diagnosis, but from people saying mean things on Twitter.
I feel bad for her, and I do not doubt that she’s experiencing emotional pain. It seems unlikely that this is PTSD, as the diagnostic criteria are designed to be fairly restrictive, and Twitter harassment does not appear to meet Criterion A. You can find information on the diagnostic criteria for PTSD here.

10 More Things I Wish Everyone Knew About Atheism -
As much as I liked Herb Silverman’s post about 10 things he wishes everyone knew about atheism, I couldn’t resist seeing if I could come up with 10 more.

H/T to Friendly Atheist
I am not an atheist because I am mad at your preferred god. I’m not sure how to be mad at something I don’t believe is real.
Is the reason you do not believe in Zeus, Odin, or Baal that you are angry with each of them? I doubt that very much.
