My closest friends know that I lack a belief in God, but many do not. I was raised in the Bible Belt and am surrounded by people with whom I disagree. I don’t often express my disagreement in order to keep things civil. Instead, I started this blog, which I think is safer and less in the face of those people I’m around quite often.
And the name? Well, Dirk Purvy is a character I created for a novel I started but am yet to finish. I took his name as a pseudonym.
