Atheist Foundation of Australia are at it again!

I'm beginning to think that the AFA is a little anachronistic organisation desperately trying to make itself seem relevant. It appears to be joining the ranks of the theists in making all sorts of unsupported scientific claims. Is it not enough just to be atheist? Is it not enough just to state that they lack belief in god(s)? Unfortunately for us besieged Australian atheists, it is not enough for them. The particular statement that sticks with me is the following:

"No personality or…

THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP

THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP



This is must reading for anyone concerned for the country's well being under the leadership of Donald Trump. Twenty seven psychiatrist specifically look over almost 30 years of tapes, newspaper articles and social media to evaluate Donald Trump as Commander-In-Chief and the picture isn't pretty. What they write is hardly a surprise for any watching his first 297 of Trump's time in the Oval Office. Already there are doubts regarding Trump's stability… Continue

The Bronte Sisters and the Evolution of Societies

I have long loved the works of the Bronte sisters, Emily, Anne and Charlotte. Such disturbing stories like Jane Eyre provided me with endless hours of entertainment as a young person. I was forbidden the reading of fiction in my devout Christian home, but I managed to hide books from the library and read them after dark with a flashlight under the sheets of my bed. As a young person, I related with the bleak outlook that the Bronte sisters captured in their books.…

Anti-Aristocracy

There is an evil strain permeating American culture and that is the culture of aristocracy. It has been eroding the egalitarian values this country was founded on. I fear liberals who believe that all humans are equal are loosing the argument by those that want to divide humans into class to protect the status quo. These aristocrats argue from the vantage point of power, that they are where they are due to some sort of superior character trait and it is equal opportunity that allowed them…

The Unholy Alliance of Gods and Countries

America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. Sounds like a song. Oh, wait a minute, it is a song. And, patriots everywhere in this exceptional country sing it, stand for it and well up inside whenever they hear it. Patriotism, a manufactured cultural response to wherever a human is born, still rings loud and clear in most countries. I've never been anywhere in the world, and I've been lots and lots of places, that lacked this feeling of love for country. The commitment to a birth…
