Google advertising has policies against "advertiser unfriendly" video's on YouTube, allowing them to pull ads from video's. While most video's seem to have a single ad, and many youtubers that focus on topics like Atheism, LGTB, and basic news and information have ads pulled from perfectly reasonable video content. Mr Hagee's video calling for the end of the world December 29'th 2016 has 19 ads for a 27min long video!!!!!
WHY? This seems beyond crazy on so many levels. I…Continue
The 10 biological imperatives of life, including Homo sapiens
1/ Oxygen (air). The element oxygen is imperative for almost all life on Earth. Our atmosphere is 21% oxygen with the rest made up almost entirely of nitrogen along with other gases at pretty much trace levels. Oxygen is the element in air that allows animals, including humans, to conduct the chemistry of life. The 21% is critical because below 17% not enough oxygen is present to allow for comfortable…Continue
Hi there - I run an online learning website and a speaker has been making the secular circuit in my neck of the woods talking about a reality based approach to life.
I asked him to create an online program - and this is what he came up with - https://humanistlearning.com/7-words-that-can-change-the-world/ (It's free - no sign up required - just log in as a guest)
told him:i told
him;we told him
There is some debate among scholars on the historicality of Jesus Christ. Was the story given in the New Testament about Jesus based on a real historical figure? There is a movement that now poses it as a serious question but they are mostly considered fringe radicals. Most Christian scholars scoff at the question which is no surprise due to their Christian beliefs. Honestly, I believe that the “radicals” offer much compelling evidence for the case of a fictional Jesus though I…Continue
His name was Bukhari, a sunni Muslim. He was the Training Manager at BHEL, Trichy (India). He used to invite me from Madras for conducting 3 to 5 day training programmes & workshops for his middle level & senior level managers. During the lunch break, I would walk from the conference hall to his cabin in the next building for a chit-chat.
I never took lunch since it would make me sleepy. I had to be at my best…

Why don't you atheists who believe "God" is a coherently defined term like the terms "unicorn" and "Santa Claus" give me a reason to believe that it is? Don't you think that would be a better plan than just dissing me because I don't happen to know of any reason to believe "God" is a coherently defined word?
I had a disturbing dream recently. I had renounced non-belief in the supernatural phenomena like gods, soul, afterlife, heaven, Karma, reincarnation and become a devout Hindu brahmin once again. I was doing maha mangalarthi to Durga mata by dancing like the Bengalis do. I woke up in cold sweat and felt relieved that my secular humanism was in tact. Perhaps it was the consumption of too many vadas my loving wife had made the previous night.
In real life, this can happen only if my…Continue
I have a serious question. The Vermont National Guard put out a request for sources - for a program that is a LOT like my Living Made Simpler program in terms of topics they want discussed. (see:https://humanistlearning.com/livingmadesimpler1/)
Obviously - it's the military - a non-religious secular approach to a discussion of ethics and personal responsibility and the dignity and worth of each…Continue
Bare with me this is not hate speech.
Let's say the Aztec religion becomes very prolific in the U.S. There's temples through out the country. Our Constitution protects the freedom of religion. Great especially if it also protects freedom from religion. One day these Aztec theist decide to sacrifice a random citizen at each temple every day to ensure the sun rises. Would their freedom of religion then be protected. Of course not. It would be deemed unconstitutional on the basis…Continue

“Joel Osteen’s Fake, Heretical ‘Christianity’ Isn’t Any Better Than Atheism.”
That’s the title of an article from blogger Matt Walsh published yesterday on The Blaze. If Matt Walsh ever does have a thought worthy of publication, he will no mistake it for a bad cold, and there is certainly no chance The Blaze would publish anything that challenges the grade-school…Continue
Reasonable, intelligent individuals view homeopathy as pseudoscience easily dismissed by high school chemistry and simple mathematics, but since I am neither reasonable nor intelligent I consider it to be the greatest medical marvel since the tongue depressor.
The genius of a homeopathic remedy lies in its simplicity of construction, so anyone with an empty…Continue
Religion as per some philosophers is all about Comfort & Consolation. Religious beliefs (Soul, Afterlife, heaven & gods) are molly-coddling illusions. Afterlife beliefs are the primary reasons for the case that religion is a product of wishful thinking.
The belief in life after death may eliminate or weaken:
- The fear of personal extinction
- The overwhelming sadness when loved one dies
- The sense that a life of finite duration…Continue
