Our Knee-jerk reaction to Death

Even after seeing the death of my parents, relatives, acquaintances & friends over the years and realizing the inevitability of death from age if not from accidents, I have not been able to come to terms with death.

When visiting the bereaved people who have just lost some loved ones, I do not know what to say to them. Well-meaning people say these platitudes:

"He/She is in a better place" or 

"she will not suffer any more. That's a relief. She is going to a place where…

Germany is a non secular Country part 2

Any outsider who comes to Germany will be amazed by how foreign this country is, it is the center of Europe yet it had its own unique characters, sadly it is still heavily influenced by Christianity:

1- In many countries (Syria for example)it is illegal for a political party to be religious based but not in Germany where you have parties like:  Christian Democratic Union of Germany and  Christian Social Union in Bavaria

2-schools teach religion to its…

Truth

Truth examples: 

mathematics, why does one plus one equal two?

mechanics, how do pistons work?

navigation, why did the plane change course many times while flying from L.A. to China?

nautical astronomy, How did the Polynesians in canoes get to the Hawaii’s Islands in 300-600 AD.

heat, why is my home warm and cold according to my wishes?

steam, what…

Since I went there I might as well finish.

I mentioned an idea I've had for a very long time. I call it Atheist house,

And yes its directly making fun of the christian "houses" where children are sent to to be abused for god. As a child I was often threatened with being sent to places similar to "Grace House" from the movie "Saved!" or those boot camps kids get sent to where so many children died they had to move from places like Utah to South America to avoid prosecution. I was also threatened with being left…

A (hopefully) brief auto biography of a hiding Atheist.

I hope I can fit this into one blog post, I have the motivation to try and don't know if I'll have the energy to continue if I don't finish tonight. (just thinking about doing this has me shaking a bit lol so much drama!), I'm going to try and tell the story without emotional bias and attempt to stick to the facts as much as I can.

Hello, my name is J. I was "born into a missionary baptist family," I am the oldest son. Both of my parents served in the military and later…

Good Without an Apology

Atheists can’t provide a sound basis for their morality.

…it’s the kinder gentler version of “atheists can’t be moral,” which is a common theme among Christian apologists. To be sure, some folks go back and forth between the two messages, but at least some apologists do seem to keep a clear distinction between the claim that atheists cannot be moral and the claim that whatever morals we may have, we simply cannot justify them in rational terms.

More here:…

NOBODY IS WORSHIPING

   Friends, I have heard a strong rumor that they have found god. He is the prime mover that created everything and that also includes us. His name is Gotchanow and he admits he was the first cause. There are some strange things here, however.

   * We are born, we live, and we die.

   * Absolutely nobody is wailing and covered with ashes and sack cloth.

   * This god makes no promises and has never tried to contact us. We found him.

   * He isn't healing anybody…

Atheism and Social Justice

There seems to have been a lot of jabber in parts of the atheist community these days about SJWs, also known as Social Justice Warriors, and the supposedly negative impact these people have had on the atheist movement. Argument about this business has gone up and down the internet, from YouTube to Patheos.com and back. The two sides of this foofaraw seem to be split mostly around feminism’s seeming inclusion into the warp and woof of some atheist discussions and issues deriving from that…

On Being a Free Bird

Sreeni: Prof. Kumar, one of my religious friends asked me about the real benefit of an Atheistic & Secular outlook. All I could think of and say was this: “The journey toward Atheism is a quest for the truth, truth which can be empirically tested and for which you can gather evidence, however distressing & frightening the truth might be. It could be the discovery that we humans are all alone, there are no souls, no afterlife & no god(s) to help us”.

Me: That is correct.…

Forgiveness.

Last week, a former coworker sent me a text that one of my colleagues had died at a young age.  It wasn't a complete surprise, as I had heard rumers of a rare, incurable, and rapidly progressing cancer.

This knowledge led me to ponder my relationship with the departed.  I had worked with her for many years, and in fact had tried to help with workplace challenges, by mentoring about specific issues and practices, and advising about how to manage a difficult career.  Over time,…

Trump Macho Infection

Trump Macho Infection

Trump rises to power by tapping into the reptilian brain of humans. He is a con-man who recognizes a patsy when he sees one.

Trump pretends to be masculine in ways that remind me of Benito al when I was a child. Both behave with attitudes of entitlement, arrogance, selfishness, egocentricity, overbearing, pompous, and cruel. They believe in Social Darwinism…

Cary Part 5 Chicken stock

Finding foods that Cary likes that can be cooked to a mushy stage and put through a blender and seived has been harder to find than I thought it would be. Yesterday, I had success. I made chicken stock using a big package of *chicken wings, simmered it until it was reduced by half, used that stock to cook the tips of asparagus, sieved it and put it in a glass Mason jar, labelled it, put it in the refrigerator after offering it to Cary while it was hot. He rejected it with vigor! Sometime in…
