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

Timothy Freke was flipping through an old academic book when he came across a religious image that some would call obscene. It was a drawing of a third-century amulet depicting a naked man nailed 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.

Too High A Price

The place is Earth Alliance Space Station Babylon 5, in the year 2260. The players are one “Mr. Morden,” a human representative of an ancient and powerful alien race known as The Shadows, and Vir Cotto, attaché to Centauri Ambassador Londo Mollari. The Shadows have recently been supporting the Centauri in a considerable military campaign against another alien race: the Narn, and Cotto and Mollari both have been deeply involved in that conflict, though Vir has strongly opposed it from its…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

A Debt to the Truth

Posted on June 1, 2020 at 8:00am 0 Comments

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…

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

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…
