Trump is not the real problem. He's just a creative  and sadistic puppet.  The real problems are the religions that are forcing their followers to support him. Yes Fundamental Protestantism and right…Continue

Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.  See More

"Thanks, Thomas. As it was in ancient Rome, it still is in America: Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful. -- Seneca"

About Me:
I am a retired neuroscientist and professor emeritus of pschiatry and pharmacology. I headed Westchester Atheists when in NY and Rossmoor Atheists in Walnut Creek, CA. I am an anti-theist who thinks that much of our troubles in the US results from privileging religion and prohibiting its criticism or regulation by secular ethics and standards. It should not be given exemption from taxes and should be made to obey all our democratic rules and regulations. It should be made to be a good citizen like all the rest of us.

eric, in response to your recent post.

Catholicism was tyrannical in my life but so many non-Catholic Xians disliked or distrusted it so much that it never became tyrannical in America.

Are you saying one or more of America's religions is tyrannical in America now?

Hi Eric,
I love Ingersoll. A true inspiration, and a reminder to all of us that Atheism and freethinking are not new, but rather are part of a long tradition.

Welcome.  Your parents were hippies, weren't they?

Don't get me wrong.  I love the name, but it's usually an indicator of your parents' leanings.  ^.^

 

Oh, and did you mean post-doctoral?  As in you already have a Ph.D.?  Freaking impressive, at your age, if that isn't a typo or misstatement.

when relatives push their religion on you or your kids

Some of us inform them that we will gladly supply them with freethought materials  to help them better understand reality, free of charge. For example you can give them a gift subscription to FFRF's  newsletter, Freethough Today.  Or make a donation to American Atheists, FFRF or some other atheist org in their names.  In other word you can use your secular freedoms to push democracy and free speech. If you hadn't already noticed, we are at war here in the USA for the survival of the…
