The Mythicist Position

Morality: Subjective vs Objective - but does it MATTER?

I have been noticing for some time now that atheists tend to get into long drawn out discussions with theists over the objectivity of morality. The theists posit that we have no basis for our morality, as if some basis must exist for morals to have meaning. Atheists will then take one of two paths. They will argue for the subjectivity of morality or they will explain how a secular moral system could be objective as well. A counter-point discussion also often arises, where the atheist points…

Jesus Has Returned And Is Living On My Couch

 I've spoken to many people that wring their hands with giddy anticipation at the thought of Jesus returning for his second coming and flying them off to heaven so they can spend eternity with their dead Grandparents playing Bingo and learning the harp. But I am here to tell those people that they can stop all the hoping and wishing because Jesus has already returned and has been sleeping on my couch for the last six months.

  I found him sitting on a park bench not far from my home…

The passing of Erik Anderson

FYI: you may have noticed that and the Epicurus wiki are now offline, that is because the creator of both, which were great resources for beginners, has passed recently. This blog entry at The…

Frankie Finally Shows His True Colors

I’ll admit it: when Pope Francis initially came on the scene, I thought there was some hope for the catholic church. Maybe, just maybe, they’d put someone in the front office who was genuinely interested in recognizing the seriously problematic issues which the RCC currently labors under and was prepared to address them in a meaningful way.  I mean, jeez, this guy is tackling the cult of opulence and conspicuous consumption on the part of some of the Vatican hierarchy, he’s drawing more…

Freeedom from Vs. Freedom to

Sreeni: Prof. Kumar, one of my religious friends asked me about the real benefit of an Atheistic & Secular outlook. All I could think of and say was this: “The journey toward Atheism is a quest for the truth, truth which can be empirically tested and for which you can gather evidence, however distressing & frightening the truth might be. It could be the discovery that we humans are all alone, there are no souls, no afterlife & no god(s) to help…

A Typical Pot Head Rant

I just caught this comment over my Pot Stories and Humanist Essays. 

"Typical pot head ranting as the druggies do."


There's no way this guy could have possibly read the book. It's more about Shakespeare and opera than about any sordid drug deals or squalid crack houses. I find it a tragedy that Americans are divorced from the arts and culturally deprived. The legacy of past generations is so wonderful. The latter stage of my life is devoted to the humanities.…

Why would you want to be an atheist?

My mom is genuinely bewildered that I would "choose" to be atheist. I remember when I was a believer just pitying atheists, because they didn't "know the lord" as I did. It was an egocentric thinking error to assume that the atheist hadn't experienced what I had. In truth, I had never experienced the myriad joys of being a free thinker. Here's my article:…

Blood Moon Stupidity: It only proves Earth has a shadow!

Keep getting Christian NONGS, highlighting a 'Blood Moon' as having End Of Times significance.

When all a 'Blood Moon' means that light is refracted through the Earth's atmosphere producing reds and purples on the surface of the moon as the moon sits in the middle of the Earth's shadow, and as it moves out of the middle, it varies to more purplish and finally as it exits the shadow, it returns to it's silvery former glow.

When are such idiotic End Of Times fundamentalists going…

Those Family Loving, God Fearing Republicans and Preachers?

Why do I pick on Republicans and Religionists? Simple, they are ridiculously easy to shoot down when they tout family values and religious dogma. I am completely aware that Democrats are probably just as bad, but family values, God and, well, racism, has not been big-ticket items for them. In fact, Dems make for very dull reading, but Republicans and preachers? My tongue drools at the mere thought of it. When the emperor has no clothes, I'm just as qualified as anyone else…

ISIS May Be Bad, But Vaccinations Are Worse

 At the risk of being labelled a person who only relies on anecdotal evidence to bolster the truth of their claim, I am now going to do exactly that, so bear with me a moment;

 In November of 1994 my two year old nephew, Forrest Gump (his parents were big fans of the movie) received an Influenza shot from the same hospital he was born in. Today, Forrest Gump is in jail for…

A Doodle for Epicurus

Society of Epicurus invites everyone who loves Epicurean philosophy to send an email to asking Google to create a doodle in celebration of EPICURUS' birthday for February 20 of 2016. The hope is that this will coincide with next year's Epicurean symposium in Athens, Greece, and will generate greater visibility for the event.

Doodles are basically depictions of the Google logo that celebrate aspects of human achievement or of popular culture, or certain holidays.…

Christians, Muslems, and mayhem.

Religious belief, piety, etc., has traditionally been regarded in society as commendable virtues and worthy of admiration. Governments have given privileged treatment to any religious organisation for no more justifiable reason than the organisation is faith based and therefore worthy of preferential treatment. They forget, to their chagrin, the dogmatic bigotry and ideological intransigence inherent in this piety they so esteem. This naiveté regarding the dangers of organised god belief has…

Man has never been to the moon, deal with it.

 I am a lover of all thing Star Wars and deep into astrology, which I believe, gives me a more advanced opinion then most in regards to the credibility of the Apollo moon landings. I have perused the videos, read the books, and spoken with several people who claim to have been living on the moon at the time. My conclusion is that not only did the Apollo astronauts not land on…

No Freedom From Religion for this Atheist

To expose yourself to any news medium today is to encounter a veritable tsunami of religious bullshit, enough to confirm my worst visions of humanity and make it all the more difficult to hope for a secular future, free of religion’s enslavement.

The Pope comes to America.  At incalculable cost, we learn, unprecedented security measures are being employed to protect his holy self.  Why not trust God to do it?

Captain Spaulding, Chakras, and Ghost Hunts: A Skeptic's Weekend At A Horror Convention

If you can’t tell by my attached photo gallery, I absolutely love the horror and supernatural genres of entertainment. Alfred Hitchcock, Vincent Price, George Romero, Quentin Tarantino, Boris Karloff, and Peter Cushing? Cannot get enough. I love the macabre art inspired by all things dark and taboo. Little coffins decorated with favorite…
