"Kathy, you opened my eyes to a truth I hadn't seen. Thank you.. It was either my ex-wife or I, while we lived there, who kept them on the sane left. I knew my ex-wife was talented. "

"Bertold, I've told many people the RCC had almost 2K years to find ways around the biblical stuff that trips so many non-Catholic xians, such as the too-simple struggle between good and evil. I more easily saw that those two words serve…"

Today’s Kinda Loaded Question – How Do You Read a Bible?

Today’s Kinda Loaded Question – How Do You Read a Bible?

I always wonder what it means to ‘read the Bible’. The question comes to mind when people tell others to read the Bible; when they say they’ve read the Bible, and when they ask others if they’ve read the Bible. These questions and comments often seem intended to pack an extra bit of punch; something…

Ask Not What Your Alibi-Buddy says About You?

We’ve all heard about the alibi buddy. He’s that gay guy whose best friends with the man telling you he’s against gay rights. He’s also the black guy who hangs out with the fellow bashing African-Americans. He’s the Muslim who totally agrees with all of someone’s generalizations about Muslims, Arabs, and even Sikhs, cause…

There are More Persons in this Conversation than are Dreamed of in Your Philosophy!

“I don’t believe in atheists.” That’s a phrase I’ve been seeing a lot lately. It passes for clever in apologetics blogs and it helps many a drive-by tweeter to troll the atheist hashtags.

So, awhile back I’m sitting at a booth for the place I work at a largish regional conference. I’m the last guy on the planet that you want to be selling anything (trust me!), but the others are busy with an event of their own. Anyway, I’m sitting at the booth answering questions, handing out stuff, and just…

Welcome, Dan! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Atheist Teachers, BloggersEven Heathens Love Their Pets! and Atheist Ailurophiles.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically in Alaska and elsewhere.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

Hi Dan

A big welcome to this world of rationality, truth and peace, where common sense and science lead to freethinking wisdom --- as you know in being a  non believer and freethinker like us.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3500 members.
