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

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

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.

No, I was being a smartass on the quote thing about your hearing crickets in the silence, so I just said I'd lost my hearing as I wasn't hearing any protestations either.

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

Loren,

 Why aren't there more senators such ad Daniel Moyanahan who was more of an engineeer/scientist vs a lawyer  politician type?

And Now There Are Five...

Posted on August 8, 2019 at 11:30am 4 Comments

Sadie was never the friendliest cat I’d met from the time I first ran onto her in my gal’s apartment. She always had a bit of a ’tude about her, best characterized by her meow. “AAAAOOOOWWWW,” as in “Who you think you messin’ with, bud?” Her attitude mellowed at least a little with the years and the move from the apartment to the house. She allowed herself to be groomed by Morris, our Maine Coon and would even come up in my lap for a pet-pet, but there was always that grumpy cat underneath…

One Nation Under … Not AGAIN?!?

Posted on July 5, 2019 at 7:40am 9 Comments

So I open my digital copy of the Cleveland Plain Dealer the other day (3 July, 2019), and after passing the first couple pages, what do I get confronted with on Page A5 but the following:





The text that followed was pretty predictable: quotes from founding fathers, congressmen (no congresswomen, I noted!), Supreme Court justices and some other…

Congresswoman Nancy Patricia Pelosi

Longworth House Office Building

15 Independence Ave SE

Washington, DC 20515



Dear Congresswoman Pelosi:



For the past not quite two and one half years, we have watched the presidency of Donald Trump unfold, entirely too often with the pattern of undoing, controverting or negating standards of operation or behavior which virtually any other occupant of the Oval Office would treat as sacrosanct. He…

Democracy, Responsibility, and Samwell Tarly

Posted on June 6, 2019 at 8:40am 7 Comments

Samwell Tarly: Why just us? We represent all the great houses, but whoever we choose, he won't just rule over lords and ladies. Maybe the decision about what's best for everyone should be left to ... well ... everyone.



The war in Westeros is over. King’s Landing has been wrested from the hands of House Lannister. As Game of Thrones wound down toward its end and a council is assembled to choose a new king or queen, perhaps the saddest part of this…
