What you don't know won't hurt you: Abstinence Only Education

George didn’t believe in driver’s education, he didn’t want to have anything to do with it.

Never mind how he learned to drive, his biggest fear was that his children would get hurt if they learned too much about it in advance, but he knew his children would one day drive a car when they reached the legal age.

Until then, he decided, his children would be allowed nowhere near his car or even see the keys, and especially not one of those rules-of-the-road books, that would… Continue

The Ultimate Outsider

As a gay person I would have felt at home in ancient Greece, but as an atheist I would have been arrested and forced to drink hemlock or something. In present day China, I would have felt at home as an atheist, but then the communist party thinks homosexuality is a Western perversion that has somehow penetrated China, an undesirable import the cultural revolution failed to eradicate. Actually, I'm not the ultimate outsider. The ultimate outsider is this: gay, atheist, black, female, overweight,… Continue

Fear of gas attacks keeps Afghan girls from school

Fear of gas attacks keeps Afghan girls from school

Afghanistan (AP) — Only a few dozen of about 570 female students attended class in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday after an apparent attack with poison gas sickened more than 80 girls this week.

It was the third apparent poisoning at a girls school in about two weeks. No one has claimed responsibility for the… Continue

The Complexity of Sexuality

"Sexuality isn't complex. God made man and woman to be united as one. Sin makes sex complex."

This statement was directed toward me on the forum for "A Christian and An Atheist" Podcast. The author was a rather…

Talking Atheism and Dawkins with a police chaplain

I don't know exactly how this will go, but I have a lot of respect for this man. I've known him for 4 1/2 years now. I forget how the subject came up at all, but yesterday (seeing as it's now 2am) I 'came out' as an Atheist to him. He seemed rather surprised. (Seeing as I live in Georgia most people are surprised. I'm not shy about my beliefs. I don't shout about them, but when presented with an opportunity I gladly share my views.) He also teaches courses at a local college to do with religion… Continue

Terminator Salvation: I Bet You Can't Find The Plot Through All The Explosions

Terminator Salvation is a pre-sequel (or is it a se-prequel) to the previous three movies in the Terminator series. Atrocious writing, shoddy effects and lackluster acting made me wonder why they bothered to make Terminator Salvation at all.

Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) is recruited by Dr. Serena Kogan (Helena Bonham Carter) while on death row to be part of a mysterious experiment. Years later, Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) and Star… Continue

My problem with "belief"

Alright, so either there is a god or there isn't. If there is a god, he has set characteristics. But it IS black-or-white. What pissed me off is when people act like belief is an opinion. "You must respect all opinions about the afterlife and gods". Opinion? How is believing a fairy tale an opinion? If God exists, how is believing that 2 and 2 make 4 an opinion? An example of an opinion: chocolate tastes better than vanilla. Another example of an opinion: gays should not get married. Another… Continue

My son as Einstein...

My son was Einstein for his school's "wax museum". They got to pick someone from history, do a report on that person, and dress like them, with their displays. It was the coolest. I went when my oldest had his, and then Dan's the other night. I'm going to miss going to them!…

Athiests have no morality?

I really hate it when people assume that we have no morality. They usually either assume I come up with my own morals or that we just do what we want.

So, I ask them if (their holy book) didn't exist would you rape, murder and steal? Usually none of them will say yes. If they do, then are they really actually good people? Do you need a holy book to tell you that any of these things are wrong?

If they say no, then why do they need the bible when they already seem to know the difference… Continue

Me: I wanted to ask about LDS and women. What… Continue

First death under Washingtion suicide law.

Finally, a little compassion for those with a serious illness that will make them suffer greatly. I hope Ohio allows this before I get old or I may have to move!

Call it "Concientious Objection" instead of "Religious Objection"

Here's a story I ran across on the ultra right-wing religious wing-nut "news" website "WorldNetDaily"...

Summarizing here: a nurse was demoted at her job in a hospital because she refused to dispense the "morning after" pill to patients. She claimed it was a violation of her religious beliefs.

I'll admit my first knee-jerk reaction was that she was being ridiculous. Perhaps even "religulous"… Continue

Too numerous to count . . .

# of times I spoke out/refused to comply when someone attempted to include a prayer or grace at a secular event ----- 423 and counting

# of times I've been shunned because it was obvious I was not of a 'religious bent' ----- stopped counting at 1,000

# of times I've been proud to be an independent thinking non-conformist, probing the unknown relentlessly -- too numerous to count

Conversatios with my Mother; part 2

My mom knows I'm an atheist and that I'm writing a book about her scandalous cult-leading mother. She's bothered by the first and okay with the second. We ended up in a really constructive conversation last night about religious extremism. I told her that I'm planning on marketing my upcoming book to "moderate christians" because I think they need to wake up and take responsibility for the crazies in their flock. Oddly enough, she agrees. She's on the "leadership council" and "planning… Continue

This could be a good idea.

My sis

I've been feeling really down lately. My sister and I haven't been getting along since I found out her boyfriend tricked her into having an open relationship with her. He also took her to drinking parties, and drove her home. He took her virginity and still wanted to have girls on the side.

I was really against this and gave my sister my advice, I told her to talk him out of the open relationship thing, its not right. She got really mad at me, but didn't show it to my face. She sent me an… Continue
