  • 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…

  • How would you respond?

    So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. 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…

  • The Fake Christian Busybody Show (Andrew Bradley)

    It seems as though there was a Gay Pride parade in some town somewhere and a Christian commentator, herein known as The Activist Mommy, apparently got her panties so in a bunch about it that she had to fire up her video camera and record a commentary on the event.  What she didn't know was that her…

  • 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…

  • the value of offence | qualiasoup & theramintrees

    To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a video regarding the topic of OFFENSE: how it is…

  • The myth of religions

    The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea reflects exactly what men of Western culture hear,…

  • Winter Driving, Preparing for the worst

    Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe driving on winter roads. I made a file, "Winter…
