Happy new year to all. I've been busy on Facebook, and with other projects, and with everyday life. I see we are now up to 475 members. Congrats to Raina Rhoades on her new blog and to all other endeavors in this area. I am starting out the new year in a good mood, which may not be discernible when I'm attacking intellectual mediocrity even more viciously than I did prior to January 1. Civilization is sinking fast, and intellectual life along with it, but here at least things are moving.

My family isn't religious so i wouldn't know what it's like to "celebrate" Xmas in a Christian home but you can just keep in mind that the origin of Christmas has nothing to do with Jesus at all. It was a celebration of the Winter Solstice until about 200 years after Jesus' death the church adopted it.. then it was Christmas.

As can be seen from some of the idiots already commenting here, one cannot expect much politically from atheists as a group. I participated in the Occupy DC movement along with other freethinkers, but we did so as individuals. It would be utterly pointless to attempt such a thing under the banner of atheism. Future discussion of this subject should go under a new subject heading, rather than to clutter this wall with this topic.

True. I should have probably prefaced that link with I agree with the basic premise and so on. The basic point, however, still remains completely valid in my opinion. So they do "claim" to have our best interests at heart, but they are no obligated to do so outside of the realm of what makes them money, while our Government is there "by the people and for the people" (or however the quote goes).
Comment by TNT666 on November 3, 2011 at 10:33pm
Well at least the closing of that paragraph is wrong. Big pharma DOES claim they have our best interests at heart, as does Bill Gates, as does Monsanto, as does Enron. In fact most billionaire corporate tycoons think they're saving the world, and all of us along with it... by providing us with all these crappy undervalued jobs. Billionaire corporate tycoons claim that without their cheap labour policies, we'd all be without work... poowee! as if there wasn't happiness before corporatism. That article does like Fox News, sprinkle a couple of truths throughout, and then come to a nonsense conclusion. Just keeping it real here...

This article is the real reason why I, as an American, cannot fully support the Occupy movement. I agree with their objections, just not with their target


However, I am all for getting the money out of the government. Our government should be ruled by everyone, not just by those who have the money to bribe them

I would love for groups of atheists to speak out publicly for Occupy Wall Street, but I'm not holding my breath... outside of biblical issues, most of the atheists I've met are pretty status quo with the powers that be. Completely opposite atheists of the previous century.
