The following was published on after the posting of still another xtian rant. Feel free to use it whenever it might apply.

A Question for Believers

August 29, 2009 04:29 PM EDT

I posed this question in several different forms on the thread of a post that declared those of us who could or would not accept the "fact" of god's existence were just being obstinate, obdurate, obtuse or, in her words "intentionally ignorant". The gist of her… Continue

A Grandmother's Lament

Posted on June 12, 2009 at 3:36pm 7 Comments

I thought I had done everything right. I knew they had to be carefully taught to stay on the path, strong in their convictions, to resist peer pressure, reject conventional thinking and make their own decisions. I assiduously kept them from the insidious influences of dogma, ritual, superstition and belief in mythical beings, including Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, unicorns and gods of any kind. I taught them to read everything, believe nothing until proven to their… Continue

So what DO atheists wish each other at this time of year?

He's Coming a Theater Near Me!!

This modest little flyer was found in my (Jewish) podiatrist’s office, amidst the copies of Esquire, Rod and Gun, Modern Maturity and a pile of similarly unrelated publications. Just lying there, virtually unnoticed! How can this not be an international headline? A scheduled appearance by The Savior himself in one small Florida landfill community! Why was this earth-shattering event not heralded by trumpets and hosannas from on high? Why… Continue

Punk'd Again, By God!

The following was written last year, after a tornado ripped through a nearby area. I thought it would be enjoyed by my fellows in faithlessness.


Once more, that loving Christian god has shown his capricious sense of irony by hurling killer tornadoes at still another Florida trailer park. (Oops.. make that “mobile home community”…wouldn’t want to be p.i. in a godicle). The sick humor here is that this most recent assault was on a retirement community,… Continue

Happy birthday you old broad! Can't believe YAHWEH has let you live this long. You must have some dirt on him huh? Come on, what is it?

Happy birthday!

Thanks for the invite to join this very interesting group. Interesting because even when we begin with a seemingly singular and unifying idea of non belief in god, we are as different from each other as any group formed for any reason. There does seem to be a more humor here, or is it our shared and highly developed irreverence for all hardened ideas?

Ouch! That stings, Ruth. Especially coming from someone that I respect so much. However, I understand and appreciate your opinion. Take good care.

Hey, Ruth. I've missed you, but that is of course my fault. I've been absent a lot, but think of you often. Hope you are well.

Hi Ruth! You seem like someone I need to know -- I love your spirit! I'm also a huge LOST fan and noticed you mentioned it here somewhere.

I'm looking forward to reading more of your writings and checking out your books.

Maybe we can talk LOST sometime.

Fellow fiercely devout atheist,
