Howdy! I had an exchange with Preacher Matt Powell and asked him to back up his claims about conversations he claims to have had with atheist. He promply tried to cover up his lies. This is my new video about the exchange. Was I too harsh on him? How would you have handled it?…Continue
Public prejudice toward atheists is still high, not only in the United States but in most of the countries in the world. Around half of Americans would refuse to vote for an atheist for public office, according to recent polls. Polls also show that the rejection of atheists is mainly due to the public assumption that people who are irreligious are also immoral, since they have no fear of punishment by God. But is God really the source of human morality? Certainly the Judaeo-Christian-Muslim…Continue
I would like to propose that the block feature be redesigned. If someone clicks on the block feature when trying to block someone on a public page, they need to go to a form that will collect relevant information and screen shots that will ONLY be seen by an elected committee of peers (Or hired social scientists with degrees) who will decide if the block is the right thing to do and implement the block for that person if it IS the right thing to do.

Oh, but aren’t you excited or thrilled? You see, we were right all along! Wassamatta, eating too much crow? Those sour grapes turning in your stomach?
Nope, don’t like grapes and crow isn’t on my…
With recreational marijuana legalized in nine states and medical marijuana legal in more states than not, the subject of whether or not to use it as a parent or how to talk about it with your children may have come up. As a parent, you want to be informed – because who wants to sound like they don’t…Continue
All your Western theologies, the whole mythology of them, are based on the concept of God as a senile delinquent.”
Hey, it’s National Day of Prayer! What are you atheists doing as your superstitious fellow-countrymen, led by a hypocrite who exemplifies their values in no way whatsoever, declare their obeisance to their Imaginary Friend, and ask him for lots of stuff?
Mel Brooks compared God to a Chinese waiter,…Continue
