Secrets of an atheist diary

Logic linking, rational thinking, socratic speaking, skeptical sleuths seeking out truths clouded in conditioned youths determined by causality to seek out the details of debris, part of some ultimate reality, following evidence with each sense condensed through perspectives fence of relativity realized through free inquiry, following leads, pulling out weeds, recognizing breeds thanks to evolution, an elegant solution to the diversity of life, knifed by supernatural beliefs, arrogant chiefs,… Continue

Atheist Comedian with Some Really Good Stuff to Say

I wanted to post this link where everyone could see it. I just found this through StumbleUpon and clicked to play the video because I was trying to figure out who this guy was. I knew his name but not his work. This is not a piece of his work, so don't expect to laugh much, but I think he had some good stuff to say, especially toward the end.

My first blog

Hi, I've been a member for a couple of months now, but I had not felt enough confidence to write anything, until now.



I'm for México and I'm sorrounded by religious people, some moderate, some extremists but the majority of the people, including my whole family is catholic, just like I used to be (or still are if you consider the fact that they just don't let you go so easily, you know since you just can't erase baptism).



I realized I was really and atheist about 2 years… Continue

I just posted some of my old Jack Chick Audio Parodies

Yeah, they're years old, back when I didn't know anything about anything. Not that I know anything yet. But there's some value there. There's the Jack Chick tract "Dark Dungeons" written by my hub Francois Tremblay, as an old detective play. Then there's Noah's Ark, as seen through the eyes of a pwecious wittle girl. It's strangely moving. Finally, an inconceivable tract, "The Unloved," a terrible Jack Chick soap, with some bad audio, but some hilarious moments too--if you can hear it properly.… Continue

Iowa legalizes gay marriage!

Iowa Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage



DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa's Supreme Court legalized gay marriage Friday in a unanimous and emphatic decision that makes Iowa the third state — and first in the nation's heartland — to allow same-sex couples to wed.



Iowa joins only Massachusetts and Connecticut in permitting same-sex marriage. For six months last year, California's… Continue

Critical Thinking... Or not...

Recently the JREF (James Randi Educational Foundation) YouTube account was suspended, and it seems those who claim to hold critical thinking in high regards, and attempt to get others to use it in their day to day lives, don't hold to it when they feel those they care about, or they them selves, are directly effected, in a negative way.

Robert Crumb Draws Genesis!

Article



"The famously subversive US cartoonist Robert Crumb has announced the completion of his long-awaited take on the Book of Genesis.



The acclaimed satirist revealed on his personal website that he had finished the project, which is out this autumn, and which his UK publisher is predicting will "provoke the religious right". Four years in the making, Crumb worked from the King James… Continue

Hymn to Lucifer

Ware, nor of good nor ill, what aim hath act?

Without its climax, death, what savour hath

Life? an impeccable machine, exact

He paces an inane and pointless path

To glut brute appetites, his sole content

How tedious were he fit to comprehend

Himself! More, this our noble element

Of fire in nature, love in spirit, unkenned

Life hath no spring, no axle, and no end.



His body a bloody-ruby radiant

With noble passion, sun-souled… Continue

Atheist Spirituality

Hey there Nexians!



I blog over at www.ziztur.com, and will be reposting some of my blog posts here and writing some new ones. Enjoy!



I can imagine that everyone reading this blog is aware of the fact that I am an atheist. You might be wondering what an atheist has to say about spirituality, or how an atheist defines spirituality. You might be wondering if I am going to ride in on my atheist high-horse. So before I actually begin talking about the subject of spirituality, I… Continue

And this is what happens when extremists use their religion and the law to punish women.

EEK! It's the Ex-Boyfriend!

I got the most unexpected message on my Facebook page.

From an old boyfriend: It was a rather short relationship; I was 17, he was 19, he was movie-star handsome, but completely wrong for me. We did nothing but bicker. He was an extreme right-wing gun-boy and I was lodged firmly to the left. Knowing what I do now, I can see that he had a pretty severe case of ADHD, with all the benefits of short-tempered, short-sighted, non-stop ranting and interrupting every sentence that came out of my… Continue

The Times of Harvey Milk

The Times of Harvey Milk is one of my favorite documentaries. It details the life of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to be elected to a major US office. Milk was a gay rights activist, a populist politician, and a great person. Even learning about him today, I can tell that he was a kind, generous man with a passion for inspiring his fellow humans. He called himself the "Mayor of Castro Street", and he was without a doubt the first person to give a voice to the many oppressed gays… Continue

Growing up my mom was in the Air Force as a chapel manager so I was exposed to all major denominations. We started out playing for the baptist team, then moved over to the protestant camp, back to baptist team, and finally landed on planet catholic. I'm still not sure which one I despised the most but if I had to pick one it would be planet catholic. I still cringe thinking back on the nightly forced ritual of saying the rosary, not every other night but every night. As terrible as it… Continue

ALARM, ALARM, THE ENDMEME THREATENS ALL LIFE

This is the sequel to “Why I Became a Militant Non-Believer” on this blog.



Humanity is in a race with itself and we're running out of time. The planet is in dire straights. Nature has given mankind the power of reason, and in return, like Frankenstein’s monster, humans destroy her with the power of science. The waste of billions of years of evolution is unbearable to contemplate.



It’s the arrogance and stupidity that’s so hard to take. Instead of blessing nature with joy… Continue

Crazy for God

I often judge a book by how much it makes me think and reflect. Frank Schaeffer's, Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back - certainly passed that test. The outdoors, mountains, adventures with firecrackers, hunting, hiking and, of course religion, all were a big part of my childhood and relationship with my father as it was for Frank. Some other similarities struck me as well. As the oldest, my mother… Continue

Dogma Free America

Had a great conversation with Rich Orman on his podcast, Dogma Free America. You can listen to it through iTunes of his website http://www.dogmafreeamerica.com/ It will be on line around April 8.



His is one of the three or four free thought podcasts I listen to every week. I have listened to his podcast for a couple of years now and enjoy its "wider angle" view of the issues we all are concerned about on the planet. What is different is their more international view of religion's… Continue
