I wonder about this jesus guy. If you ask me. I think he was a vampire and not a zombie. they try to kill him but before he dies he releases his spirit/soul. vampires have no souls right? then he comes back and doesn't make any huge outdoor appearances like he used to. has an indoor meeting and a meeting outside at night. scared of the sun maybe? and what's with the whole drink my blood thing? He seems too cognitive to be a zombie and more concerned with blood than brains. killed on a cross?… Continue

Eh -- I've had a couple of glasses of Shiraz. I feel like sharing my thoughts.
I call this "Room For Thought"
That I don't believe in gods is well established. I do leave room for error, of course, as we can never be quite sure that we have a firm grip on what is 'real'. I do know one thing for certain. Even if there are gods, I will refuse to submit.
I know we atheists blame religion for many acts of oppression, war, genocide and other worldly ills. We… Continue

I'm writing an essay on 2012 - Doomsday, where I talk about the variety of reactions leading up to the date.
I have done a bit of research on past Doomsday events, and thought I would share the section pertaining to religion. This is just a rough draft, I have some more ideas I plan on adding, and if anyone has any other ideas on how people will react, religiously speaking, I'd sure like to hear them!
OK. Here's the section:
"Highly religious people are… Continue

In my book I write about infection techniques but the more I study those techniques the more appreciation I have for the role of decreased immune resistance in the process. You tend to get sick when your immune system is suppressed or weakened by stress. Opportunistic disease organisms take advantage of the weakness to infect. Many people get infected when they are young and have little resistance to religion and are under the intimidating protection of religious parents. Adults often get… Continue

so the family I nanny for are baptists and the kids REALLY wanted me to come to church with them on Sunday, I at first said absolutely not.. but they kept asking so I agreed. Let me say wtf!!!!!.. So we first start praying to Jesus to forgive our sins then start singing this song about knowing jesus is alive with us today... then the pastor gave a speech on reasons why to believe jesus was resurrected from the grave. His first point was that there was a huge rock in front of his cave where he… Continue

I received by e-mail today Prof. Lynch's approval of your MALS Essay. He was very favorably impressed -- especially by your accounts the career difficulties of individual singers.
That would be the e-mail I got this morning from my Directing Professor. Here I was, dreading opening it, knowing there would be alot revisions to make, down to the wire, like last time. Well, at least I don't have to present it in any evil professor's classroom/office.… Continue

In no way am I condoning or advocating drinking and driving. In the fashion of the great Czech writer, Franz Kafka, I wish only to portray what happens to the individual under Draconian, police-state conditions.
In jail for the first time... 51 years old, imagine. Look at this place. Must be the holding pen where they keep the pigeons ‘til bail’s posted. If you don't have the hard cash, you go in with the… Continue

It is amazing how important some people believe they are. Its almost as if they need to approve of everything I do with my life. Perhaps, even, I might soon need their permission before I can breathe air.
Nonsense! What is this life? A number of years and then its death and the grave for each and every one of us. Why do people feel so
important,when in a matter of years, every single one of them will be dead and turned to dust?
Why should I care what they think, or… Continue

I feel bad for those injuried. but you would think that some of these people would get a clue when a priest hits innocent people on Good Friday with his car. Unless, of course, your a different religion and then this could be a confirmation. Still too morbid for me.

Is it really a big fucking deal that I'm an Atheist and I sell Mary Kay? I mean all I'm trying to do is earn extra money in order to pay off my car and get Mary Kay half price (I've already been using MK for years).
Lately I've been kind of snickered at by my Atheist friends regarding me being part of such a blatantly Christian organization. They haven't forced me to pray and I haven't forced them to not pray around me.
Pffft, if you can't please everyone, you've got to… Continue

I've taken English in school like everyone else, but the rules of grammar just never sunk into my thick skull. But I see no sense in punishing my 2 daughters for my faults so I've recently started a journal that has all the crazy things they've said (my memory is worse then my grammar!) and this is such a great example of the hilarious things are that comes from the mouths of babes.
Yesterday my 4 and 3 year old were making necklaces with some of my extra beads that I had laying… Continue

Well, that sure didn't take long. With the failure of the Republican party to secure any kind of relevance after the election, pressure is on to control the minds and entertainment of the masses in more insidious forms. Yes folks, the guardians of moral health are at it again. This time, you'd best watch what you read.
Today, Amazon.com announced that it was pulling some genre's of books from its search engine. Even though these books may be best sellers and have good size customer… Continue

I have been off my blog for a few days while I attended The American Atheist conference in Atlanta. Had a hugely fun time. Athiests know how to have fun but I have to say that the Alabame Atheist contingent with Blair Scott could take the prize (if there was one). The height of the conference was the debaptizing ceremony led by Edwin Kagin and his cronies. It is a simple process, quick and painless by hair dryer no less!
The official sacrilegious food… Continue

Ten Answers from an Austro-Athenian
Scott Pruett has written 10 Questions for the Atheist, and François Tremblay has answered with the first half of 10 Answers from an Atheist (with more to follow). Pruett seems to equate atheism with materialism (“Atheism,” Pruett tells us, “by definition, holds that there is no God and nothing beyond this world of matter, space, time, and energy”!) and… Continue
