  • God's Annual Performance Review (Betty Bowers)

    I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would be her immediate supervisor, though.  Yahweh's…

  • The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

    I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I was no longer a part of the demographic they were…

  • Questions......

       It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me.

  • Ian, a beautiful New Years blessing.

    Ian, for some reason, my comment would not "send" on Hang with Friends; perhaps it will here!Ian, a beautiful New Years blessing. It goes in my file. I especially like the thought of surprising myself. Laura made a special trip to my Spokane home to get my recliner. It fits perfectly in my bedroom;…

  • The Ark Encounter: A Less than Grand Opening (The Thinking Atheist)

    The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest of Ken's overblown rowboat, who spell out in…
