Oft times we nontheists focus on the dangers of religious ideologies. However, there exists within atheism a potential for hate that rivals the bloodiest of religious fanatics. I am talking of 'survival of the fittest.' Evolution itself is predicated on the idea that we have evolved to our current biology as a means to make us superior to other species in the world. This is a fact of nature but need it be a fact of human interaction? Richard Dawkins believes it a terrible idea to base…Continue
There’re many more reasons not to believe in the doctrines of organized religion. These are ten of my favorites, not necessarily in the order listed. You can probably think of many more.
1. If God is all-knowing, he knows the future before an event happens. So before a baby is born, God knows if it’s going to hell or not. If the baby is predestined to go “there” and God allows it to happen, we have to question if the Divine One is all-good. I wonder if anyone ever…Continue

Hi everybody. My Name is Dave Kilby (aka Grouchy).
I do a blog at "Grumbles From an Old Grouch", http://grumblesfromanoldgrouch.com about politics, atheism, culture and life in general. The blog is written as someone who has been there, done that, bought the t-shirt and used it to clean up the mess.
I'd like to extend an invitation to check it out. I especially recommend the posts: The Theory of Evil-ution vs…Continue

My summer reading began with yard sale book by Matt Ridley called, "Genome"...and it was excellent! That lead me to do some intenet searching and I found him talking on several sites about Rational Optimism. He is well worth looking into and fun to listen to...Life is not as bad as Fox makes it sound!
I finally got the Netflix movie, "Atlas Shrugged: Part 1" and watched it this weekend. Both hubby and I got tears in our eyes from the subject matter and the ideas of Ayn Rand's Objectivism. It stayed very close to the book, but it will come out in 3 parts with the next one due out in October. A pain full wait is ahead of us and anyone else who loves this story. Well worth seeing for all ages and mind sets. We loved it!…

“Those who love God are not always the friends of their fellow men.”
“When I think of all the harm [the Bible] has done, I despair of ever writing anything to equal it.”
“I find it necessary to wash my hands after I have come into contact with religious people.”
Voltaire was right for his time, but would be wrong today if he said “Christianity…

We read a lot in the culture wars about marriage, like it is a concept that has been around forever and everyone knows what it is. That isn't quite true. Marriage as we know it today, is a fairly recent invention. As recently as 500 years ago, few people in Europe bothered to get married. Only the landed classes tended to formalize marriage. There are many cultures that have or had no concept of marriage. Others practiced very different forms of marriage (think Muslim and Original Mormons).…Continue
