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.

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.

Well, I figured the odds were against there being another "Loren Miller for Ohio", although I didn't know you attended the FFRF gathering. I've thought about going, but since they publish all the speeches, I stay home.

I'm assuming it was you that submitted a letter I read in FFRF's magazine. I said, "I know that crazy guy!"  I've had one letter published before.

Thanks for the video link. He plays a lot better than I do, but I could say that about almost anyone.

OK, you've been given another chance. Don't be asleep at the wheel again this time, guy! This could be the last end of the world you ever get to witness.

Purposeful Stupidity and Jurassic World/Park /Whatever

Posted on April 25, 2016 at 8:00am 2 Comments

Last Saturday evening, I took in the last hour or so of the HBO premiere of Jurassic World, and while I have not seen the entire film, I’m not certain I have to. Jurassic World, like the original and its offshoots, is a paean to stupidity, oblivious, inadvertent, and purposeful, and the consequences it spawns. There are the predictable side elements of self-assured arrogance and presumed authority on the part of those who want to embrace the stupid, be the stupid, and the…

A “Strange” World or the World We Live In?

Posted on April 13, 2016 at 9:15am 6 Comments

A long time ago, I was something of a fan of Marvel Comics, and among my favorites was Doctor Strange. By way of introduction, Steven Strange started out as a medical doctor who was forcibly introduced to the idea that objective reality as we know it was only one such reality, that there were others which had the potential to interact with ours, both for good and for ill. Figuratively slapped in the face with this revelation, Strange set about to learn all that he could about this new…

The Need for Humankind to Grow Up

Posted on March 18, 2016 at 9:00am 11 Comments

If we’re to grow up as a species, we need to address the systems that infantilize us.

-- TheraminTrees



I recently posted a question to Steve Shives for his “You Had to Ask” series, wherein I asked for his thoughts regarding population growth and the problem it poses for our continued existence on this planet. No great surprise, Steve had no solutions among his musings, but he noted importantly that, as a problem, population growth is far more obvious and blatant than…

Priests and Pedestals

Posted on February 7, 2016 at 1:00pm 8 Comments

It’s not very often when the Arts and Life section of the Sunday paper provides grist for my mill, but that section in today’s edition of the Plain Dealer not only gave me a reason to write, it royally pissed me off. Page Two held a piece by Danielle Sepulveres of the Washington Post, who recently was invited by a friend of hers to do a reading at her wedding. Danielle relates the full story…
