QUOTE

"The religious factions growing throughout our land are trying to force government leaders into following their position 100 percent. If you disagree with these religious groups they threaten you with a loss of money or votes or both. From where do they presume to dictate their moral beliefs to me? I am warning them today: I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of Conservatism."

YET....again...

So it is election year.

And they are pandering to the "Religious Nuts" in America.

I see all these states passing these "Religious Liberty" laws.

They are so unconstitutional.

And they will get overturned in the Federal Courts.

So I look at these "laws" and I feel that the politicians who make them, and pass them, are the ones who should have to pay all the legal costs incurred when they land in the Federal Courts.

And why not?

Don't these…

The Middle East

     I’m at that point with the Middle East where honestly, I feel the ISIS issue is, well, their issue.

I also get the impression from the Arab League that they are just going to sit on their bottoms, sip tea and wait for the west, or NATO or the US to handle the situation.  But this seems the norm over there.

     As one person pointed out they (the Arabs) don’t or won’t attack another because they want to be “friend” and not upset anyone.

     Well maybe it is time…

So my girlfriend is studying to become a lay minister within her Church. I even helped her pay for a class.  She knows I’m an atheist and is fine with that. And I’m fine with the fact she is a Christian.

Well, during the class someone mentioned, yes..you know how…ATHESISTS….

Ya know what the instructor told the class.

Atheists tend to have and behave more “Christian” then the Christians.

That took a lot of people aback.

Kinds throws a different like on…

Realization

REALIZATION

 

One day I realized just why religious people, or that fraction of “Believers” hate atheists, is that they are literally scared of us.

They are simply afraid that their beliefs will be shown to be false.

And with that, the made up afterlife will not be there for them.

There is no great beyond.

There isn’t a “higher order” or that they are the “Chosen” of the all mighty.

Their lives are, at least in their eyes, limited, or…

Hi, Rick. I see that you're an active member of Military Atheists. I've run across an article relevant to folks in service, but am not a member so I can't post it. I've previously left information on military related science articles with the moderator, but he doesn't seem to pass on anything.

People with PTSD should not be taking Ambien for sleep, it enhances negative emotional memories.

Sleep Mechanism Identified That Plays Role in Emotional Memory

Please use your judgment about the relevance, or future relevance, of this article and consider posting a discussion in Military Atheists.

Thanks for your attention.
