In the final analysis, faith remains the last resort of believers who argue that their god exists and that everyone, us included, needs to believe to earn a place in an undemonstrated heaven or be…Continue

About Me:
I'm a semi-retired electrical engineer who has a rather eclectic background, never mind a few miles on the odometer. I suppose I was an "apatheist" for quite a while - largely indifferent to the whole issue of gods - but after 9/11 and the more blatant appearance of evangelicals and Dominionists on the scene, my atheism has finally come to the fore.

Other interests include high-end stereo and home theater (and with that, CD and DVD collecting), BMWs and general car enthusiasm, single-malt whisky and biking.

I flatter myself that I know my way around Atheist Nexus at least reasonably well (I've been here since November of 2009), so if you need a hand with something, please don't hesitate to give a shout.

Thanks Loren,

I managed to retire early a few months ago after 30 plus years designing avionics. It's funny but most of my coworkers were theists. Hard for me to understand why, LOL

Primary Vote Held Hostage in Ohio

Posted on March 17, 2020 at 7:20am 2 Comments

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine just took the COVID-19 debacle out of bounds last night, announcing that, because of the current “health emergency,” the polls would not be open today and the Ohio primary would be postponed until June 2nd. His action was allegedly in response to a lawsuit from two elderly Franklin County voters who feared exposure to Coronavirus in the public voting place.



This action was immediately challenged. Per reporting in today’s (March 17, 2020) Plain…

Alexander Hamilton – On a Man Unprincipled

Posted on February 1, 2020 at 9:20am 5 Comments

When a man unprincipled in private life desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper, possessed of considerable talents, having the advantage of military habits — despotic in his ordinary demeanour — known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty — when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity — to join in the cry of danger to liberty — to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion — to flatter and fall…

The Word Is "Entropy"

Posted on January 22, 2020 at 7:30am 2 Comments

Entropy (n) lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder.

Canaries, Coal Mines…



Believing is easy. Knowing is hard.



“Coasting” “The bill doesn’t come due until after we’re dead” … so why care?



“Eternal vigilance…”

Then What Are You For?!

Posted on December 5, 2019 at 8:15am 8 Comments

...they [the Roman Catholic Church] for example thought that slavery was perfectly fine... absolutely okay, and then they didn't, and what is the point of the Catholic Church if it says, “oh well we couldn't know better because nobody else did”? [To the affirmative team] Then what are you for?!

-- Stephen Fry, answering a question during the 2009 Intelligence Squared debate, “Is the Catholic Church a force for good in the world?”



Of course, slavery was okay to…
