Made Up Stories

I've been talking to my mom about a med change for my wife, and how I can convince the doctors to put her back on certain meds that work. My mom says my dad was given a shot to help him, but it in fact it turns out that it made him really sick and took and month to recover. That next month, the doctor wanted my dad to take another shot. My parents explained to the doctor that the shot had made him sick, like he had had the flu, but the doctor, my mom said, was determined it was the right med…

Make believe

Isn't it good that we, as atheists, understand that none of the Judaeo-Christian/Islam religions are true; in fact, that no religion is "true." What a discovery we have made!

Are the Religious Entitled to Special Treatment?

I think not.

Further, religious "moderates" and "liberals" have enabled our creeping theocracy.

Dreaming of Utopia while a Dystopia prevails

THE UTOPIA I DREAM OF 

 1. Imagine a world where 99% of the population is voluntarily atheistic - where rampant belief in supernatural (SN) agency is not socially supported. Where the political leaders do not invoke the names of deities at the conclusion of speeches or use the blessings of such deities in justifying state-sponsored wars and the captains of competing cricket teams, when asked whether their team will win the game, will not feel compelled to say "Insha…

Living beyond your Lifespan

When people learn that I'm a secular humanist, one of the most frequent questions they ask is, "What do you believe happens after death?"

So that there's no confusion, let me make my position on this clear. I don't believe that there is any such thing as a soul/mind/atma that survives the death of the body. I believe that the mind is a physical process, arising from and produced by the activity of the brain, and so when the body ceases to function, the mind ceases as well. Thus, I…

Morals without Religion

I met with a pastor the other day. It was in response to a critique I sent him of his sermon. I'm sure he's probably never received such a thing:) He was civil and polite though and replied by saying "Thanks for the feedback!" My concern was him preaching that the Bible is the inerrant word of God. Now, I know it is a lot of things and people are real sensitive to it, but the truth is that there are errors, as I have learned from the wonderful evangelical Christian turned atheist, Dr. Bart…

Holy Books – All Things to All People

These are puzzlements!

-- King Mongkut of Siam (allegedly)



How is it that Christianity and Islam are both sources to claims of peaceful intent and despicable savagery? Jesus Christ is regarded by some as the “Prince of Peace,” yet the religion bearing his name spawned the Crusades, the Inquisition, the usages and practices of the Malleus Maleficarum, and too many other atrocities to count. Muslims worldwide declare that Islam is “a religion of peace,” yet…
