So, you think you know the story about the woman who went to McDonalds for coffee, spilled it on herself and sued, eh? Sure, you heard about it, maybe you even saw the parody on an episode of Seinfeld, but I’ll bet you a cup of coffee that you have no idea of the whole story.
Indeed, I’ll bet you didn’t know that:
I would like to have your opinion about the discussion below. Our organization is quite young and we don’t have enough legal nor technical knowledge in this area. Meanwhile we are conscious that it is a huge endeavor to be carried out without international support and collaboration.
I started therapy and seeing a shrink for about a month or so now(or is it two months? crap..). Things have been a bit tense lately, and well, being honest about things to a person who doesn't know you that well..is akin to taking a too small bandaid off of a festering, gaping wound.
In other words, it hurts like hell. But keeping it all in hurts even more. I really wished, however, that someone would have warned me of the "overflow" that occurs after a therapy appointment.…Continue
I'm just gonna shoot the shit here no specific point of topic, the only one being atheism in the mid-western states of the U.S. Being an atheist can on occasion be difficult, and in other times it is very easy. Location in my experience seems to have a lot to do with this I have been many places all over the U.S. and to a few other countries and rarely do I experience the amount of disdain for conversing with anyone than the amount I feel when conversing with people from home. Being…Continue
“Too many people have lied in the name of Christ for anyone to heed the call” - Crosby Stills and Nash, Cathedral
What if the Bible is not just wrong or full of legends? What if it was also full of lies?
This is the premise of Bart Ehrman’s new book Forged. In a nutshell, he documents the deceptive practices…Continue
"When I pray, I pray believing that God will speak to me and give me an answer to that prayer, and so that’s what a calling is,” she told CBS News on Sunday, explaining that she had prayed about her decision to seek the presidency. “If I pray, a calling means that I have a sense from God which direction I’m supposed to…Continue
Please listen to the song on the webpage (you'll see the sound cloud in the upper right). Now I have no idea if these girls are atheists, but damn, that is an amazing song.
Actually, it's called "Hard Believer", and here's a link directly to the Soundcloud page:…Continue
My sketchy computer/internet skills led to me posting a favorable comment on one blog when I meant it for another. (In my childhood, there was no television, let alone computers.)
In one of Odin Zeus McGaffrey's Blog post's, he made a joke in which the underlying assumption was that Jews are cheap. First of all, that's a sweeping generalization & racist as well. Secondly, there may be some Jews who wouldn't find this hurtful, but in my opinion, many would. And finally, O.Z. Mc G.…Continue

Everyone was in a pissy mood because the sinful, blasphemous, God hating State of New York gave the sinful, blasphemous, God hating homosexuals the right to marry. So when I walked in wearing my "Jesus had two daddies" tee shirt, I think they might have misinterpreted (as they often do) what I was really trying to say. I wasn't saying "Jesus was gay," I was actually saying, "Ha, ha, you fucking lost again you immoral, mindless dipshits."
I wonder if I am smart enough to be a member on this site.
Although the only requirement is you be non-religious, it almost seems like to "fit in" you need a degree in cosmology with a working knowledge of quantum physics, psychology, ecology and global history, and a minor in world religions and or philosophy.
I AM an atheist, I know there are no gods and I do know a little bit about A LOT of different things, but read a book about geophysics? No Thank you..I think Phineas and…Continue
There came a point in my life one time when I loved everything in a right-side-of-the-brain swimming elation. I woke up and I was in love with/toward not only the person who had been the target of such emotions of mine in the recent past, but also everyone else.
I even, though it was painful at that time to even realize it, let alone to admit to it, loved the people that I hated. Now, those who I hated, I hated dearly. They were and, I…

Despite being 11 years into the 21st century, in the United States the train of ignorance rolls on and shows no signs of slowing down. Before, I start in on this rant (yes, it is a rant) I must admit that I am highly disgusted by the colossal amount of misinformation the black church passes along. I am incensed by the ignorance it encourages and more importantly, I am frightened by the amount of, what else can I call it, bullshit the community actually…Continue

A lot of talk radio shows are often the same old talking points over and over again - Point A, Point B, Point C, lather, rinse, repeat. A lot of folks think that's what passes for good radio these days.
I beg to differ, and so does the crew at ShockNet Radio's American Heathen - airing at 8 ET/5 PT TONIGHT (http://www.shocknetradio.com, simulcast on Freethought radio -…Continue
