The Erosion of Women's Rights - Snorkeling in The Sea of Stupid

As a teenager in the 1970s, I witnessed enormous social change - the legalization of abortion, desegregation of schools, women being allowed to wear pants in public (seriously!), the ERA, all kinds of things.  People had walked on the moon, and the sky was no longer the limit. Medical science vanquished smallpox, and there was hope that all the former scourges could be eliminated. The upheavals of the sixties produced real change, and I counted myself fortunate to have benefitted from it.…

Intelligent Design

Don't worry the mythological faither god didn't do it. this is a site supported by University of Washington They have created a game to fold Amino Acids. The process is you get an Amino Acid then you help figure out how to fold it up as compact as possible. This is the beginning process of creating life. Oh the intelligence is human nothing supernatural.

There is…

Taking the Plunge into the Rally

Well I booked the flight, booked a room, and made a tee shirt online that says "A Canadian who supports the Reason Rally and Tolerance".  I hope the shirt gets done and delivered in time as promised by the web site.

Spending the money to come alone from Toronto to a strange city and standing with a bunch of strangers may use up my idealistic quotient for the next few years.

I will not argue with or try to change the mind of any religious protesters if they show up. I…

The Republican War on Women ...and cows, pigs and chickens.

The Republican "War on Women" has yet another proponent. No joke, the WTF?'s from the GOP have been coming fast and furious of late, but this one takes the cake!

“Life gives us many experiences…I’ve had the experience of delivering calves, dead and alive. Delivering pigs, dead or alive."

Friends of Terry England…

Ahhh A Quiet Place Without Faithers.

Well actually I suspect it is not too quiet. I think this will be a good place to let 30 years of Atheist thoughts come spewing out. Fortunately most of my friends have no faith or its no big deal. Which I am finding that is somewhat unusual but I have had 30 years to find them.

My father was a baptist preacher so some of know you will know where I am coming from. We did get to a point where we agreed to disagree after many long nasty fights. Funny he was a little…

My Favorite Lines From Mirror Reversal



His father was a venerable and respected police officer who never took a bribe except when he needed money.


“… mankind can be defined as ‘a peculiar ape infested by meme complexes!’” 


‘Fifty dollars for fellatio and a hundred for coitus.’  I gotta write that down so I can use it on the muckety-mucks from Connecticut.”

An Obvious Observation

Recently, a co-worker gave me a set of religious CDs on the topic of sin and morals.  She is trying to convert me, and while that's never going to happen until she can prove there is a god, it gives me an excellent opportunity to check out the materials that Christians think are important in the discussion of religion.  After listening to these CDs, I walked away with one truly over-powering observation:

Every shred of Christian morality are essentially Humanist concepts wrapped in…

#NudePhotoRevolutionary Calendar

In a press release today last week, Maryam Namazie formally announced the #nudephotorevolutionary calendar.  As Aliaa Magda Elmahdy chose to stand up against female oppression, we too advocate for free-expression and women’s rights.  This calendar features black and white nude photographs, and I’m Ms. September.  For Maryam’s article announcing…

I'll make this brief...  Sorry, but I'm not good at carrying on one liner conversations online.  I just can't

do it.  I don't mean to not participate...  Below I'll give my non-business e-mail.  I respect all members,

and if anyone has anything important to discuss with me, please feel free to use the e-mail given.

Thank you.  E H Smith

Nude Revolutionary

I am happy to report that one of the nude revolutionary photos was taken in my library - I'll let you figure out which one. Two others are friends of mine. I am proud of these women for their willingness to make a direct political stand against patriarchy and the oppression of women. Control of women's bodies is the cornerstone of patriarchal religion and societies. I am in awe of Maryam Namazie's courage in starting this idea.…

I suppose this is old news to all of you...

 When we study science, in particular evolutionary biology, it becomes pretty evident that humans were the result of purposeless and random forces of nature.  We are not what natural selection had in mind because there is no mind. 

So instead of attributing our existence to some patriarchal god, let’s take it for what it is: It just is.  Like the old song says, “Let’s live and laugh at it all.” 


You can lead a hog to a pigsty but you can’t make him stink.  (From the…

Religious E-mail Signatures - At Work

To receive religious signature lines in business e-mails from third party vendors is simply so inconceivable to anyone I know at my company that when I began receiving them I had to share with my colleagues.  They were just as surprised as I was.

The Bright Side of the Apocalypse

With Harold Camping back in the news by apologizing to us all for having unsuccessfully predicted the end of the world last year, it's time to recall those festive days. I enjoyed them as much as most people of non-faith, so I thought I'd contribute one of my pieces from back then. 

Apparently, the end of the world is scheduled sooner than both of my readers have been thinking. Most of us, especially those of us…

The fight for Freedom and Liberty continues TONIGHT!

Elton John once sang that Saturday Night's All Right for Fighting - and the folks at ShockNet Radio's American Heathen (airing, as always, at 8 ET/5 PT TONIGHT) would certainly agree. What do they fight for? Freedom and Liberty for All - three hours of comedy, commentary, discussion and analysis from an Atheist-Libertarian POV. Try finding THAT on corporate radio!:…
