  • worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

    They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse, not long after our appearance, we created gods who…

  • appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

    We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating of shrimp or manufacture of cloth from two…

  • Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

    The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty nice godless heathen [grin!].  There's…

My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist extending from it.Every Tuesday, a church group…

    Now that Sinclair Broadcasting has stated their position regarding fake news and its threat to our democracy, Mister Deity's Brian Dalton has decided to throw his $0.02 worth in as well ... though I don't quite think his presentation was really what Sinclair & Co. had in mind, really.…

  • Guns: Both Sides Now (Betty Bowers)

    Oh, NO!  The gun debate has gotten so heated that it has Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, TALKING TO HERSELF!  Apparently, one of her has had a stroke or a serious breakdown in cognitive skills, as she does little more than parrot the NRA's tired talking points, whereupon the other Betty…

  • how dogma pollutes discourse (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

    "The Lord is our God; the Lord is One." "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." "There is no god but Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet." Assertions, taught as fact, but without any form of corroborative evidence, may be said to be dogma. That's my own…
