Over the past three months, Australian members of Atheist Nexus have been working on a major submission to Australia's Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission. Last year, the Commission called for public submissions on a discussion paper entitled, "Freedom of Religion and Belief in the 21st Century". The last study of this kind was conducted in 1998 and attracted input from many of Australia's leading atheist, humanist and rationalist groups.
I am sooooo sick of the party of "NO" and their obstructionist approach to our new and improved President's efforts to undo some of the "fat cats" reign of greed! The fact they are a part of the religious right just makes me more frustrated. I am seriously considering creating a website entitled
"Republicans should have their own planet" what do you think?

I am sooooo sick of the party of "NO" and their obstructionist ways always negative and not willing to give our new and improved president a chance to undo the ravages of the fat cats' reign of greed. Of course they are a part of the 'religious right' which of course they are not and never have been ( right )! What say you thinking people?
They could pollute their own waterways and air for the sake of profit. Of course they wont have a work force to exploit with low wages and no benifits.… Continue

Oh, I just don't feel like writing a review now, but I enjoyed the book, and the author was interviewed on the Atheist Talk. I really like the discussion of how to choose your own meaning. I guess I am an existentialist and just never knew the word really applied me. Sortoflike the way I learned I was an atheist and then a sceptic and then a humanist and so forth. Here is a huge segway. During my college years, I was telling a girlfriend's father that I really liked Isaac Asimov. He said,… Continue
Do we need to vilify the messenger?
It appears that some people are starting to get tired of correcting the information over and over again. Everyone is tired of defending the same arguments over and over again.
There is always some new punk who comes into town and says "Draw Mister!" And, we begrudgingly thumb through our old notes and paste them into new blogs.
The problem is the bridge these punks cross over. Where is it? Does it matter? We can do two things. We… Continue
If you haven't seen "Known Universe" on the National Geographic Channel, you should go tell your Tivo to record it, or find it on YouTube, or otherwise, go to a friend's house. It's a fantastic show for the "Science Fan". Scott and I were watching it this afternoon when it covered the composition of the atom.
We all grew up being taught that atoms are composed of protons and neutrons with little electrons whizzing around, quite close, to the nucleus:
The electrons are actually… Continue

I live in a world full of faith and fear. I do not believe and I am not afraid. I always found it interesting that atheists I know are often the bravest people I know. Is it because the fear of having no god and no afterlife makes people panic?
This Earth is supported by billions(or trillions) of life forms or organisms. In nature, there are cycles, elements, touch, beauty, scent, reality, and crude, unaltered truth. Nature does not lie to us or deceive us. It nurtures, houses, and… Continue
So I went to the local Lasik place here this morning for a consultation. After a quick check on a very snazzy machine that gave my prescription after only 2 minutes of making a little pinwheel image come into focus for each eye (it not only gave my Rx but also was able to tell that I had astigmatism in both eyes!), I got to hear the real scoop on cost.
$2745 total!! (Unless I need permanent "plugs" to help with tearing. Those are an additional $398.)
I looked into this guy and… Continue
This section is gonna focus on a quintessential aspect of British culture but one that strangely but completely shares the same principles and creates the exact same negative sociological effects as…well, i’ll get to that later, but this blog is all about that Great British Icon…The Sun…that’s the newspaper, not the really hot planet…just so you know…good.
The Sun is quite an enigma really. It has the highest circulation of any Daily English language newspaper in the world. It has… Continue
Thunderf00t's account has been suspended due to his confronting YouTube about their silence on votebots attacking skeptic/atheist (and others) videos. The video in question has now been downloaded and I've mirrored a copy of not only his first video but his part two he has released after his account suspension.
I just recently read a religious pamphlet it was so bias it was ridiculously funny. As a bit of a graphic designer. I decided to make one of my own (feel free for any input I may make this even for a joke):
Does God Love You??
No. He does not exist. Does Mother Goose love you? Does Santa Clause Love you? Highly Improbable. If you believe these things than you have problems.
I find the topic of the definition of a "Nerd" fairly interesting. What exactly is a nerd? A person who's into "geeky" things? If that's the case, then what exactly is "geeky"? Now, when you think fo a Geeky thing, you'd think of things like Star Wars, Star Treck, Video Games, and the lot. Now, how is that geeky? Perhaps because the concept of a universe such as the Star Wars world requiers much thinking to understand it fully? If this is the case, then Nerds think fairly often. Nerds are… Continue
