Oh, dear ... CoolHardLogic has found another one!  We now have "B S Detector," a flat-earther holding forth on why he's right and everyone else is wrong.  This particular scientific "genius" seems to…Continue

David Silverman – Fighting God & Firebrand Atheism

Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael Penn Jan 20. 34 Replies

I love David Silverman. Why? Because he has the brass cojones to call a spade a spade, he doesn't soften his approach and he doesn't back down.  Recently, in Zurich, Switzerland, David gave a talk on…Continue

About Me:
I'm a semi-retired / involuntarily unemployed 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.

Thank you.

Hi Loren! Yes I love podcasts! They were a big help after my divorce the comedy ones helped me laugh again. The variety and content of podcasts is better than anything on cable. I do love the Thinking Atheist podcast, it's well produced and that voice is amazing, I could listen to him for hours!

I was just soliciting advice, Loren.

That might be related. Later I had to stop my flash plugin because it gave me problems.

BTW, I put my psychological reaction to climate news in the Psychology group. It' really for psychological discussion, isn't it. I wasn't sure where to put it, as I already overload Ecological and Climate Concerns. Have you a better suggested location to post such things in future?

Thought you might want to know. I selected the Noam Chomsky group after searching for it in my groups, and my computer froze up. The message telling me what was loading said something about read Twitter.com. Had to do a hard reboot. Couldn't find anything like that in my task manager.

I'm not so sure that A/N is going to stay up either. One thing that I have noticed for some time now is that A/N will no longer allow tags to be added  to discussions that are posted. That makes me suspect that it has been over burdened. Someone needs to connect with the originator of it and tell him or her about the problem. I think Dr. Meaden would be a very logical choice to do this. He likes Joan Danoo so maybe she should be the one to connect with him.

AronRa and Words – “The Details are Everything”

Posted on August 1, 2016 at 7:00am 2 Comments

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less." "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things." "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master—that's all."

-- Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass



In my experience, if you can't say what you mean, you can never mean what you say. The details are everything.…

In the Wake of the RNC

Posted on July 22, 2016 at 8:30am 34 Comments

So … the Republican race for the presidency started out as a clown car with all of 16 occupants something over a year ago. At that time, no one (with the possible exception of Ann Coulter) thought that the head clown, the one who has spent a significant amount of his career in the entertainment business, would be the one left standing when the dust had settled. Yet as of about 9:23 PM, EDT on 21 July, 2016, that is precisely who the GOP has as their nominee for the most important position of…

The Tale of a Billboard for the RNC

Posted on June 28, 2016 at 6:00am 26 Comments

It was something over a year ago that I learned that Cleveland was going to be the site of the 2016 Republican National Convention. The prospect of having a bunch of misogynistic, homophobic, mostly white guys invading The Best Location in the Nation was not a welcome thought, as you might well imagine, and that many of them were scornful of the concept of church/state separation did not help matters. However, I was encouraged by some discussion at a meeting of the Northern Ohio Freethought…

On The Incident In Orlando – Seth Andrews and Kaveh Mousavi

Posted on June 17, 2016 at 10:05am 3 Comments

Every now and then, Seth Andrews will ignore his to-do list and publish an unscheduled podcast when his mindset or an event demands it.  It should surprise no one, then, that Seth has produced a piece couching his own thoughts regarding what happened at the Pulse nightclub and all the reactions, reasonable and otherwise.  The YouTube version of that podcast follows here.



I wanted to draw attention, though, to an important segment of that piece.  Toward the end, Seth reads the…
