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 Loren Miller Sep 7, 2016. 58 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.

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.

Women's March 2017 – Impressions

Posted on February 1, 2017 at 9:00am 10 Comments

On the night of 8 November, 2016, in the wake of the stunning election of Donald John Trump to the presidency of the United States, an idea was started by a Facebook post and grew from there to proportions hitherto unheard of.  The idea?  A march, to react to the new presidency and insist on a maintenance of rights, for women, for LGBTQ folks, immigrants, legal or not, in short for anyone who stands to be minimized at least or injured at worst by the new administration.

"Alternative Facts" and Our Government

Posted on January 24, 2017 at 9:00am 14 Comments

The following message was just emailed to Marcia Fudge, Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman, my House representative and Senators, respectively:

When Kellyanne Conway used the phrase, “alternative facts” in answering Chuck Todd on Meet the Press this past Sunday, echoes of George Orwell were almost automatic in my head.  Facts are unique in that they describe reality, and the last I looked, there are no alternative realities out there nor are there alternative facts, except…

Confrontational Reality and Donald J. Trump

Posted on January 2, 2017 at 11:00am 8 Comments

It was a cold January afternoon in 2009 when USAir flight 1549 departed LaGuardia airport with 150 passengers, three flight attendants and pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and first officer Jeff Skiles at the controls of the Airbus 320. Beginning their climb to 15,000 feet, everything was ordinary and routine, just another milk run to Charlotte, North Carolina, right up to the point where Captain Sullenberger noted: “Birds.” Hardly half a breath later, several dozen Canada geese…

Donald Trump Got His Wish ... Or Did He?

Posted on December 12, 2016 at 7:45am 22 Comments

Know this from the get-go: I do not claim to know Donald Trump very well if well at all. What I’m laying out here is something which may be semi-plausible, based on what little I DO know and have seen of the words and behaviors of the man who is now the president-elect of these United States.



There can be no doubt but that the healthiest (or at least most active) characteristic of Donald Trump’s psychology is his ego. Regardless of what he has or has not accomplished, Trump is…
