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.

Basket Ball Head Coach Gregg Popovich Scolds Donald Trump (from Yahoo Sports and Google)

Gregg Charles Popovich is an American professional basketball coach and general manager. He is the head coach and President of the San Antonio Spurs, of the National Basketball Association [per Google]. But I suspect basketball was the furthest thing from his mind when he unloaded this searing, focused, and powerful rant regarding Donald Trump in general and his response to the murder [yes, let's call it that: MURDER] of George Lloyd:=========================== It’s so clear what needs to be…See More

A Debt to the Truth

When the truth offends, we lie and lie until we can no longer remember it is even there, but it is still there. Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later, that debt is paid. -- Comrade Valery Legasov, commenting on the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant Back in January of 2017, I wrote a blog regarding what I called “Confrontational Reality” as it…See More

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

Kevin M. Kruse's One Nation Under God - Review

Posted on May 1, 2020 at 9:00am 0 Comments

First let it be said that Kevin Kruse has done a masterful job with One Nation Under God: How Corporate America Invented Christian America, of researching and detailing those events which began and accelerated the process of both bringing Christianity more fully into American life while simultaneously politicizing it toward the Republican side of the ledger. We get reminded of well-known names, such as Billy Graham and Herbert Hoover and even Dwight D. Eisenhower, as well as learning…

Person of Interest – Revisited

Posted on April 1, 2020 at 9:00am 1 Comment

I wrote the following about three weeks ago, just before the "shelter-in-place" order for Ohio came down.  For those of you who are looking for some appropriate binge-watching material, I would like to offer this:



You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed The Machine to detect acts of terror but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like…

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…
