The lovely Raven bought me a drone for Christmas (I didn’t realise it would be our last one). I am still pretty much a novice at flying it but it gives great results in HD video.
I have been flying around some of our local country churches and this is at All Saints Church in Castle Camps which is just over the border from me in Cambridgeshire. I bumped into an old chap doing the grass and he told me a few things about the church. The village of Castle Camps has actually moved. So many of the local people died in the Black Death (Bubonic Plague) in the 14th century that the old village was abandoned and a new one built a mile or two away.
There is the stump of an old statue on one end of the roof which was defaced by Oliver Cromwell’s men in the 1600s and I also learned that this church stands on the highest point in Cambridgeshire which actually means little as Cambridgeshire is a pretty flat county.
The day was 4th of April 2017 and as drone video doesn’t have audio I have added a little atmospheric music. Click on the link to see the video.

I keep getting asked… “Why are you an Atheist?”
I am actually I suppose a very Spiritual person but my God is a loving God unlike the Christian/Muslim or similar deist inventions.
My God lives in us, in me, in you and we are part of him..as he is also a part of us
He is all around us in the smallest bacteria and in the largest Galaxy, the microcosm and the macrocosm is God
My God has no earthly church and if he were able to he would laugh at people gathering together to worship him and ask his forgiveness..
This is what I would imagine my God saying
I gave you life and free will. If you think you do wrong then ask forgiveness of yourself and the person you have wronged not me.
I do not want you to worship me in churches of stone or other construction but rather see me and glory in creation as you look to the beauty of the sky, the beauty of this earth, and the beauty of a lover’s touch or a child’s smile.
Churches are sterile places full of false promises and false priests.
My temples are the forest glades with branches as vaulting.
My temple is in your body and your mind..worship yourself and you worship me.
My God is a kind God. He does not punish. He does not ask us to seek his forgiveness..
For as I said didn’t he give us free will? So why should he punish us if we exercise it?
Yes I think we should be looking towards heaven but not for the dry empty promises of Christianity which denies and punishes love and human passion..Not for the cruelty and misanthropy of Islam which seeks to kill its own Gods creations…but we should be looking towards heaven as our inspiration. To reach out and explore and to make Heaven ours as we ARE God if we want to be.
