Mondo Diablo Episode 273: The Earth; She is Unmoved

I don't fully know what is, and I'm not sure I want to spend all of my time figuring it out. In a nutshell, physics is wrong, Copernicus was wrong, Einstein was wrong, they were all Jews and Kaballists, and the Earth is the center of the universe.

And the guy recording these podcasts has a little imaginary friend or puppet… Continue

Secular Humanists?

A bunch of pussies. Reservations are for dinner, not the philosophical foundations of one’s life. A respect for those of faith? Why should anybody have respect for

institutionalized stupidity? My imaginary friend disappeared when I was

about three or four. How…

Defending Homeschool

The "usual" criticism of homeschooling stacks up like this:

* Socialization

* Curriculum

* Multiculturalism

* lack of testing

* homeschoolers have fewer resources

* poor quality of teacher

* homeschoolers are ideologically-driven

* homeschooled children are ill-equipped to function in society

* and keeping funding from the public schools.

I am delighted to take each of these issues separately.… Continue

The evil of Pope Benedict XVI

In a recent visit to London, the Holy Vicar of Christ continues with the past lies of the Catholic Church, continues to shirk the responsibility of his Church, and continues to spread misconceptions that are obviously false.…

On Philosophical Arguments for God

(JBH) Greetings- I have a thought I'd like to toss out for discussion.

A blogger I read recently said he had "backslid" from atheism to agnosticism, because he had read a new and improved version of a certain philosophical argument for the existence of God. He was aware that many such arguments have been refuted, and some past refutations have been overcome by revisions in the pro-god arguments, and so forth. There are still some professional philosophers…

Protest The Pope, London 18th Sept 2010: An account from one who was there.

Yesterday travelled down to London to hook-up with fellow hootoo-er Effers (AKA Alison) to join the Protest The Pope Campaign.

Her account can be read here.

We rendezvoused at St Pancras as planned and navigated the tube to Hyde Park, we knew we were in the right area as we began following the devout with these little yellow "Pilgrim…

A way of spreading atheist memes-an idea worth considering

First of all, I really wanted to make a difference.

I ruled out blogging and writing on forums because I don’t have that kind of time and arguing with christians is frustrating.

Then I considered the Youtube, but I’m not a charismatic person and the only option was to add subtitles to English language clips and post them on my own channel, which I had to start from scratch, so the impact would have been quite…

Daily Beast on Veil Ban in France

French Senate Passes Full Veil Ban
Full Muslim veils will soon be illegal in France: The French Senate passed a ban by a vote of 246 to 1

on Tuesday, and the measure has already passed the lower chamber. Now

there are 10 days for dissenters to challenge the measure, which is

considered unlikely. Several Muslim women have vowed to continue wearing

the face-covering veils, despite the…

Cardinal Newmans Miracle: What is the truth?

Pope Benedict is in the UK in Birmingham to celebrate the beatification

of Cardinal John Henry Newman this weekend. Is this beatification really

justified based on the evidence of him performing a miracle? Read this

article by John Cornwell in the Times newspaper and decide for

yourselves.For my money it looks like the Catholic Church is up to it's old tricks again. Plus ca change!…

The Meaning of Life/True Happiness

How can any human pretend to know the meaning of life? How can someone know exactly why we are here and what we become, and what happens when we die? How do we know what happiness means for everyone? We cannot know any of this. The only person that can know this is that person to themselves. Nobody else can tell us what is wrong to us or what makes us happy. In life we make general rules as to what is not expected from society in regards to morals, but what makes someone happy is left up to the… Continue

I'm surrounded!

On March 18, 2008 I was diagnosed with a terminal illness. I was given a year to live. Happily the doc missed the deadline. Unfortunately, the church ladies have been trying to save my soul. Oh no! It's relentless. I know that they mean well but it's so bothersome. I wish they would afford the same courtesy to my lack of beliefs as I do their superstitions. Sorry. I just needed to vent a little.

Serenity to accept things we cannot change,

Courage to change the things we can, and the

Wisdom to know the difference

Patience for the things that take time

Appreciation for all that we have, and

Tolerance for those with different struggles

Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways, the

Ability to feel your love for us and our love for each other and… Continue

The first blog entry

Hello, Miles here. 40-something, Minneapolis. Employed (not an interesting job, but honest work nonetheless). I have been a conscious non-believer since age 16 (both my parents came from a Lutheran background but were not church-goers and felt that we would make our own decisions in that direction).

I do not consider my own non-theist attitudes to be my most important or interesting attribute. My main atheist activities so far involve following podcasts and PZ Myers' blog, and my… Continue
