Six Things I Learned After Writing “Tending the Epicurean Garden”

Today marks the 2-year anniversary of the “official” publication of my book (review here), although the book had been available on Amazon prior to that date. I wrote the bulk of the content on Tending the Epicurean Garden during the year 2013, but in the years since I have not ceased to learn about…

An important thing to remember.

Please don't take this literally, it is intended to be somewhat poetic. An illustration. I suspect many of you may think like this already, I hope you enjoy the thoughts, and understand the meaning inside.

Reality, the universe and everything in it, except for one thing, doesn't give a fuck about your…

We Should Know the story of the Spanish "Secular Holocaust"

Via a post on the Facebook Atheist Nexus, from the UK Website Church and State

The Secular Holocaust

For centuries the Catholic Church controlled Spain, controlling the laws, the social order,…

Protest song/video

Hello from Spain!
After 54 years as an atheist/musician, I've just finished a song+video protesting against the destruction of Earth's nature/environment from human greed, global warming, overpopulation and religion.

Enjoy and regards,
John Pearson

p.s. It gets rather anti-religious after 3.30!!!

Logic Structure

Logic Structure

 

Many people know about Deductive reasoning and Inductive reasoning, it's weird however that they talk about these as if they are a choice, either you choose to apply deductive reasoning OR inductive reasoning. Not only is this not correct but there is also another form of reason, abductive reasoning.

 

Recently I have heard claims that deductive reasoning makes for bad science and inductive reasoning must be used (also claims that math isn't…

Being atheist doesn't make people less crazy

potholr54

Some people think that evidence should count for less than "alternative" evidence, that you don't need math to understand the world. I used to think they were all called "Creationists" and then I find even in atheist communities the same types of people abound. 

Conspiracy theories aren't being ignored because they are fact, they are ignored because they can be debunked. They are…

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Tuesday morning I got up, actually happy that the day had finally come. I could cast my vote for Hillary and Ted Strickland and Marcia Fudge, and while I knew that Ted had no chance against Rob Portman, the other two would come through for me. My wife and I rode the short distance to the polling place on Columbus Road, showed our IDs and got our ballots, marked them and slipped them into the reader / scanner when we were done. We had well and faithfully done our bit for our country and its…

DNC, you done fucked up.

The DNC betrayed their people's interests, when they had a candidate that galvanized stadiums with his words and brought in independents, they silenced his words so they could have their piece of the establishment pie. When they were caught lying and doing bad things instead of taking responsibility they pointed fingers at Russia. 3rd party voters didn't split the vote, the Democrats split their own votes by putting up a second Republican. The Democrats just lost the house and are shrinking by… Continue

A Non-believer is compelled to be Proactive

Sreeni: Prof. Kumar, Why should any intellectual adopt atheism & secular humanism as his philosophy? What is the real benefit from these beliefs or should I say non-beliefs?

Me: Every human being apart from working for a livelihood and bringing up his children, would like to be physically healthy and happy and for this he should have the correct philosophy.

Sreeni: How can our philosophy help us in acquiring good health & happiness?

Me: Only an atheistic…

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…

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 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 abandoned at an…

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…
