Too Stupid To Be An Atheist

For better or for worse, I have decided to attempt writing a book about my "journey" to atheism. In it I will try to dispel the notion that atheists are all either very smart or famous. I am neither. I'm just an average Joe (really). The title of the book comes from a comment made by John Safran on his television show, John Safran vs. God (circa 2004):

I admit there's some people smart enough to understand science and the Big Bang and all that stuff, and therefore have enough…

Muslim hate crime in Canada.

Today in my morning paper was a story about a twenty something Canadian born Muslim and his female cousin who co-authored and self published a novel. It is about Muslim characters and apparently contains some slightly racy illustrations and the cover bears a very sexy (but not in the least obscene) image of the female cousin. The article said that the book was somewhat critical of Islam. The news story was actually about the beating of the male by two (so far unidentified) Muslim men who made… Continue

The last two years have been a real adventure, and when I have more time,will tell more about it.  However, am moving again, from the mountains to the beaches, and have no time to do anything other than sort things to be stored, things to take, things to give away, things for the fire dept's Labor Day sale, things to throw, things get my drift!

An Atheist Perspective on New Gay Rights Laws

Same sex marriage became legal in New York on July 24 there for gay priests with partners are heading to the altar. They have to. For example, the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island set a nine-month deadline for them to marry or stop living together. He also expects gay clergy in committed relationships to wed due courses. What I find interesting is that, although a time frame is in place for gays to get married, the…

American Heathen is on hiatus until January 2012

I hope many of you here at the Nexus has had a chance to tune in to ShockNet Radio's American Heathen on Friday nights in recent weeks. For those who don't know, American Heathen is a weekly three-hour Internet talk show hosted by RJ Evans, David 2 and 2Buck Chuck which explores the issues and looks at what's going on in the world from an Atheist-Libertarian point of view.


Last week's show was the season finale for this year; American Heathen will return in January 2012 with…

Mother Teresa - a fraudulent fundamentalist fanatic

Harsh words indeed.

A classic piece of Hitch-slap!

Hitch will be missed. I hope he stays with us, as productively and healthily, as he possibly can.

Burnt Toast: Atheist Sees Image of the 'Birth of Earth' in a Piece of Toast

Atheist Sees Image of the 'Birth of Earth' in Burnt Toast

Yes it’s true.

This genuine picture was photographed in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, England by science atheist Dr. Terence Meaden earlier this month.

He could barely withhold his excitement.

“I was having breakfast when this piece of ciabatta toast got burnt,” he said. “Suddenly I was aware that the pattern of light and darkness across the toast resembled what could have been…

Journey's End/New Trailhead

The end of every journey marks the beginning of something new. I, a skeptic and traveler, have decided to quit my job, pack up my things, and make an epic trek along an ancient pilgrimage trail.

Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, and Steven Pinker have gone to great lengths to explain that so-called spiritual phenomena actually do occur and we will be a great deal closer to understand them if we separate the meditative from the mystic. I agree, feeling that the very idea of a spiritual journey, a… Continue

Hypocritical Delusions!

When u carry a Bible, the devil gets a headache.


The Bible is all about the "devil". He is indeed the Antagonist while Jesus/"god" is the Protagonist. It is comprised with fictional stories of battles between them for use as "proof/evidence" for the followers. To think of him as a actual force is like believing in the power of "I do believe in fairies (tinkerbell)" or "Bloody Mary/ Candy Man". Popularity comes with the constant repetition/reminiscing of a subject/event. So,…

No ya didn’t. Yes I did. Didn’t. Did!

When it comes to religion and silliness, nothing surprises me; at least I thought that was the case until a book I read hit me with “the self-authenticating witness of the Holy Spirit.” Say what? That’s right, “the self-authenticating witness of the Holy Spirit.” I thought all the arguments for the existence of God were in my possession, but it seems one slipped past me. Actually, it hadn’t slipped past me, someone thought putting a dress on a pig somehow turned it into a prom date and…

Bill, try taking Jesus’ dick out of your mouth and you might be able to say something 50% rational.

Alternative medicine is as bad as religion for selling things that don't exist.

A bit of a beginner's guide to why alternative medicine isn't just ineffective, but actually harmful.

I'm Runing for the Office of the President. Do you like My Hair?

     I was reading online the other day what Republican Party presidential candidate hopeful Rick Perry would like to do.  Reading it I was surprised that the man would even consider doing such things.  But then again, this shows you just how far the so called “Republican Party” has gone to the right.

     Now I grew up in Houston in the only congressional district in Texas, if not the country that carried Berry Goldwater in the 1964 Presidential campaign.  In fact, I…

The Palestinian Problem

I received (elsewhere) a reply to a post in which I provided a Pat Condell video and transcript which had nothing to do with the "Palestinian Problem".  I received the following reply (edited for grammar):

I also was subscribed to Pat Condell’s YouTube channel but just was shocked and couldn’t agree with  his views on Israel.  I really don't see how anyone who often goes on about human rights can talk as if Israel can do no wrong – AND he gets the real news on the matter…

God is logically impossible

If God provided proof that he exists, then it would be logical to believe in him.  The absence of proof leaves only faith for belief.  You do not need faith if you have proof and vice versa.  By God’s own choice, he can only be known by faith.

But why have faith in this particular God?  If God won’t give us proof, what’s to stop us from believing in Allah or Zeus?  To have faith is to deny logic.  What alternative is there to logic?  How do we think?  Mindlessness is the absence…

More on mandating drug tests for any aspect of government assistance

OK, from my previous postings, you already know I pass an annual drug screen to provide for myself. What taxes can be collected under contract are collected and redistributed when and wherever the government and it's banking system see fit (to sustain porous boarders, provide welfare to drug addicts, give cheap loans and kick backs to corporations that are killing people, provide questionable narratives to fund bogus non-scientific studies to explain catastrophic planned skyscraper demolitions… Continue
