Alexander Hamilton – On a Man Unprincipled

When a man unprincipled in private life desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper, possessed of considerable talents, having the advantage of military habits — despotic in his ordinary demeanour — known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty — when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity — to join in the cry of danger to liberty — to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion — to flatter and fall…

Revolt of the Angels Book Review

https://theautarkist.wordpress.com/2018/06/12/revoltoftheangels-book-review/

“I have delved deep into Oriental antiquities and also into those of Greece and Rome. I have devoured the works of theologians, philosophers, physicists, geologists, and naturalists. I have learnt. I have thought. I have lost my faith.” – RotA

The Word Is "Entropy"

Entropy (n) lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder.



A Never-Ending Battle



Canaries, Coal Mines…



Believing is easy. Knowing is hard.



“Coasting” “The bill doesn’t come due until after we’re dead” … so why care?



“Eternal vigilance…”



I was reflecting the other day on a couple of my more recent blog posts and what they had in common. Looking at issues like climate change, social justice, LGBTQ rights and…

Politics or evolution?

We have all seen those people who obstinately deny pejorative effects of air pollution , polluted water, polluted soil in farming, toxic company. 

Many think it's partisan politics. But I think it's evolution.

Stop Childhood Indoctrination - A Message of Hope

A child who has just entered existence has absolutely no knowledge of the universe around him/her. A newborn relies completely on its parents for everything from nutrition to unconditional love. Anybody who reads this will agree that a huge majority of the people on earth claim to believe in one of the many religions because their parents indoctrinated them from a very young age. It is simply a constant cycle of indoctrination from generation to generation. By stopping childhood indoctrination,… Continue

'My God'

My first entry on this site - which caught my eye, actually while looking for the song "I'm as mad as a hatter" by Chad Morgan, posted on here by 'Michael' back in 2010, but that's another story :).

I have always considered myself an atheist, and yet always grappled with what a god or God might be. Was I missing out, or had I just not understood something, or taken some things too literally. I wasn't sure. So, a would-be poet, a sometimes singer-songwriter (my profile picture was…

Then What Are You For?!

...they [the Roman Catholic Church] for example thought that slavery was perfectly fine... absolutely okay, and then they didn't, and what is the point of the Catholic Church if it says, “oh well we couldn't know better because nobody else did”? [To the affirmative team] Then what are you for?!

-- Stephen Fry, answering a question during the 2009 Intelligence Squared debate, “Is the Catholic Church a force for good in the world?”



Of course, slavery was okay to…

What A Long, Strange Trip...

Sometime in early November, 2009, an atheist friend of mine on the now-defunct Experience Project website directed me over to a relatively new site called Atheist Nexus. There, EVERYONE was an atheist, and you didn’t have to worry about believers crashing the party and constantly trying to convert you. Gee, I thought, I should have a look, and I did, and what I found was a lively, vital community of freethinkers who had no problem with stating their points of view in boldface.…

German Baptist Wedding

I attended my first German Baptist wedding yesterday, and it was quite the experience.

German Baptists in my north-central part of Indiana are a mix of old and new ways of living. They drive vehicles and have cell phones, but don't own televisions, for example. The women put their hair up in bonnets and wear long dresses. The men all have beards and wear black.

Lorene, the bride, has worked on my farm for 6 years (along with several other GB girls). So she invited me to her…

State / Church Separation, Mike Pompeo, and My Reaction

Over the last couple of weeks, I've been hanging out at Hemant Mehta's Friendly Atheist website, reading and commenting on his multiple daily posts.  This afternoon, while scanning an entry regarding an art teacher who was criticizing students whose work offended her Christian sensibilities, someone posted the following graphic, which I thought was particularly disturbing, especially considering its source:…

An Open Letter / Rant

This is an open letter to certain people … people who are supposed to work for the government on our behalf in an official capacity. It can be a cop or a judge or a district attorney, a mayor, governor, or even a president. Judge Roy Moore comes to mind ... and more recently Judge Tammy Kemp. If her name doesn’t ring a bell, think “Amber Guyger.” Kim Davis qualifies here as well. As to presidents, use a little imagination and at least one or two should come to mind. Regardless, this is…

the farce

Anywhere and everywhere we find thousands of people in utter penury, some begging, some eating one meal a day, offspring with malnutrition facing imminent death, womenfolk exploited by affluent by molest , bond labor , and what not, a sea of infinite pain and unendurable suffering spanning millions of people. Who are they? Why they are in such condition?

 

For academic discussion we ignore Darwin theory of evolution and presume there is God, as envisaged and presumed by…

ABC News Cops Out Again

I have recently learned that, in the Democratic Primary Debate, scheduled for tomorrow, 12 September, 2019, ABC News has once again opted not to air the following commercial, sponsored by the FFRF:







Sadly, there is little new in this decision, being that none of the major networks are given to offering air time to the FFRF. That does…

Dot

My dog, Dot, tags along when I go on long walks on county roads. She often gets distracted in her curiosity. The other day, she fell behind and never caught up. Since I went around the 4 mile block, I didn't see her on my return. I waited all day for her to come trotting home.

About 6 hours later, a young lady knocked on my door and asked if I'd lost a dog. There Dot was in the back seat of her small car. Relief! The lady asked her neighbors (in a small town of about 100 people over a…

And Now There Are Five...

Sadie was never the friendliest cat I’d met from the time I first ran onto her in my gal’s apartment. She always had a bit of a ’tude about her, best characterized by her meow. “AAAAOOOOWWWW,” as in “Who you think you messin’ with, bud?” Her attitude mellowed at least a little with the years and the move from the apartment to the house. She allowed herself to be groomed by Morris, our Maine Coon and would even come up in my lap for a pet-pet, but there was always that grumpy cat underneath…

Tech has Replaced Religion as Existential Escape Obsession Du Jour

There are more and more people who are tech rapturists, who have simply substituted technology distraction escape obsessions where Jesus or Mohammad Jabadad or Buddha or name-your-sky-god-here or sprit animal or generic miracle maker or philosophical transcendence were the distraction escape obsession du jour in their parent's generation. Pinning existential escape on tech so makes one no more scientific than did existential escape through god .

The distinction is motive.

One Nation Under … Not AGAIN?!?

So I open my digital copy of the Cleveland Plain Dealer the other day (3 July, 2019), and after passing the first couple pages, what do I get confronted with on Page A5 but the following:





The text that followed was pretty predictable: quotes from founding fathers, congressmen (no congresswomen, I noted!), Supreme Court justices and some other…
