Wilhelm II Paper

I just wrote this paper for my Independent Study course, it is about Wilhelm II of Germany


 German Emperor Wilhelm II is considered by many scholars and historians to be one of the most controversial leaders in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century.  He is often blamed by many historians for Germany’s defeat in World War I.  The man who ruled the Kingdom of Prussia and the German Empire from June 15, 1888 to November 15, 1918, was considered by…

To the Conspiracy Theorist

The world is actually a lot more boring than you give it credit for.  People, as with electrons, seek the lowest energy state.  People generally are far too lazy to really care full time about monitoring and controlling you.  No doubt some of this goes on, but people also like to relax and enjoy a fine meal.  Can't be world-dominating all the time.  Need a break now and again.  No doubt governments try to control people, but this process is not perfect.  The world is far too messy and…

If You Were to Eat Enough Doughnuts

        By the way, speaking of matter, there is indeed a lot of space between nuclei and their companion electrons.  This means that matter is not as dense as we usually think of it, but it is quite solid because of the electrostatic force.  The electrostatic force is what keeps you from falling through your chair.  However, if you were to eat enough doughnuts, you might become massive enough to overcome the Chandrasekhar Limit, at which point your gravity would exceed electron degeneracy…

A Binary Dichotomy

For some, the benefits one gets from an implicit faith in God & Religion (Protection in this life & afterlife, immortality & Ultimate justice) cannot be matched by any secular philosophies. They might say nothing but their unspoken message is “I have made up my mind that Gods exist, so don’t confuse me with facts”. Indeed there are many for whom the emotional need for a protective sky daddy far outweighs the intellectual need for knowing the truth. For th…

So, you want to defeat ISIS...

So, you want to defeat ISIS...

In order to defeat ISIS, it is necessary, very necessary, to destroy the foundation of extremist, fundamentalist Islamic religious belief. It is possible to do this by attacking the ISIS stronghold of the city of Dabiq in northern Syria, decisively defeating protecting ISIS forces, and…

Is there a link between hedonism and monogamy?

K: Is there a link between hedonism and monogamy?

W: Yes I think there is such a link. As beings designed to experience pleasure/pain, we are also designed to experience them in mostly set and specific ways. There is some natural deviation, but around some core points.

As far as monogamy goes, perhaps the best explanation I heard (though it might need fact checking) was that in primates, genital size is correlated with promiscuity. A gorilla has a relatively small sized… Continue

The Value of Human Life: My post-Paris & post-Mali meditations

The idea of death affects me a lot worse, now that I’m a secular Humanist, than it ever used to before I made fifteen revolutions around our star, the sun. Not just my own death, but everyone else’s too. People dying is bad enough to comprehend and deal with, even when it occurs from natural causes like old age, when the dead happen to be your loved ones. I remember the death of my parents and how inconsolable I was. But unnecessary deaths from road accidents & plane crashes, pointless…

Perception and Religion

Something we seldom realize or consider when we take a position on, well, pretty much everything, but especially on matters of politics, culture, and religion is that, to use an old and hackneyed phrase, ‘Perception is Reality”. And human perception depends on many things, including the culture that formed the human mind, the environment we occupy, the current state of human knowledge (that changes over…

Does God answer prayers?

If you believe he does, consider this:

We probably still have much to learn about what happened in Paris last Friday night, but there is one thing we can be 100% certain of. Before those bastards started out on their mission, they would have prayed to God. They would have asked for his full support for what they were about to do. They probably prayed while they were spraying bullets into people's bodies.

Given that they killed more than 100 people, injured hundreds more,… Continue

Dear liberals, I am a liberal too....

To start with lets focus on some of the events that occurred around world. First of all I am here to show my solidarity with all the terrorist attack in recent months and days. Baluchistan, India, Bangladesh, Turkey, Lebanon, Nigeria, France everywhere. The only post I have posted was a tribute to wonderful person and brilliant mind Dr. Avijit Roy. Before and after the murder of Avijit Roy Bangladesh still saw more secular bloggers bloodshed. Publisher of Avijit's book "Virus of Faith" was…

Dear Mr. President – Regarding Paris...

Well, yours truly has been at it again, throwing hand grenades in the form of bits and bytes or pieces of paper with words arranged in particular sequence on them.  This time, in the light of the recent events in Paris, France and the US response to that, my intended recipient is this country's chief executive:

President Barack Hussein Obama

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington, DC  20500-0001

Dear Mr. President:

Crisis provides the opportunity for change.

War drums beat all around us, raising the shackles of quiet but frightened people feeling helpless. Militant Islam and militant Christians react with ever louder shouts of war. If there ever was a time for reasonable men and women to step forward it is now. The war mongers of Islam and Christianity are so loud it appears to the casual observer that hopelessness is all that exists.

I see opportunity all around me, not just a PollyAnna kind of optimism, but a future full of promise, new…

The Bible: A Book Review

 In the beginning there was nothing except a grumpy old deity with a God complex, which is ironic because in this case He happens to be God. After an eternity of doing nothing, He decides to built a universe populated with billions of galaxies and trillions of stars only to ignore all that so he can focus his attention on what bipedal apes are doing with their genitalia.…

Reasons for the persistence of God delusion

One reason that so many “modern” people still “believe” in supernatural silliness is that so many people are so amazingly ignorant: recall the fatwa of the top cleric in Saudi Arabia threatening anyone who didn’t believe that the world is flat, recall other rulings of Muslim clerics that evolution is false.From such (and more) the conclusion seems inescapable that the majority of religious fundamentalists are just ignorant bumpkins. Recall the tautology: “Half of all people have…

Bridge to Organicism

Bridge to Organicism

As we have previously discussed, there is a continuum of objectivity and subjectivity regarding values, with nihilism (nothing at all matters in any absolute or purely objective sense) on one end and hedonism (values are entirely relative and completely dependent on subjective experience) on the other. The entire continuum must be entertained at once to have a comprehensive understanding of values. But it would appear that only the extreme ends of the continuum… Continue

Sam Harris – An Atheist Manifesto

I am, as many of you already know, a habitual quote-monger, as evinced by multiple posts and comments here on Atheist Nexus. Over the six or so years of my avowed atheism, I have amassed a fair collection of brief statements and longer works by significant freethinkers who share in the cause of secularism and opposition to irrational belief. One of the more recent of these is a piece by Sam Harris, entitled simply, An Atheist Manifesto.

This treatise, a touch over 4,600…
