jr is not taking the high road

ill say it again

you must be careful wen you say some thing in here , first of all James Randi's account was deleted because of a copyright claim. not because of censures.

Someone filed a DCMA on this channel. Once they do that, they are required by federal law to suspend the channel and delete the video until it is resolved.

and for the person who posted on the main page saying that JM is taking the high road , well that's just wishful thinking , i saw the vid and he seams to be… Continue

Convention soon!

I just got my Out Campaign pins from the Richard Dawkins site:

I ended up getting the package while my parents were at my dorm. When I opened them I had said the pins were for the American Atheist National Convention so my dad was wondering where his pin was (he thought it was the pass to get in) but I told him I didn't get him one… Continue

Absence from the e-world!

I have been neglecting the e-world for a while. Things have been pretty crazy with me, and I'm plain lazy. I guess I needed a break. Plus I got a new xbox 360 so I've been playing video games like crazy when I should be studying for my PPL test.



Anyway, I'm on the Council of Ex Muslims forum and there's this really nationalist sounding dude on it. His view is that all Muslims (moderate or not) should be deported to Muslim countries. Wow. That's a pretty stupid thing to say on… Continue

Why it's OK for sex to hurt???

I'm guessing this guy's not real popular with the ladies. I don't know if the name Jesusophile is a good or bad thing. Maybe it's just scary.

Episode 192: Magical Questions, Real Answers





I was contacted by an Australian Christian who found 10 questions on the internet and wanted to publicly write them on my "website" and have me answer them. I don't know what website he was talking about; I suspected it was my Atheist Nexus page, but I'm not certain. I have lots of pages, but my only websites with my… Continue

Interesting essay

I just returned from talking with a great group in Joplin, MO - link. Who would guess that there is a very active and lively group of freethinkers in such a bible belt city (25 attended). We had five students from Ozark Christian College in the audience as well. They asked interesting questions and stayed around for some good conversation at the end. I rarely get religious people in my presentations, but I certainly… Continue

Forum Discussion on Root Cause of Social Chaos

Why? Why are people so violent when they gain a pulpit or a Presidency or a seat of power? It has plagued mankind throughout history.



Blame is always levied, but later discovered to have been a falsehood - yet the bright ones, the good ones we elevate to the top - change. It happens to so many of our best leaders. From this:





To THIS:









How about the idea… Continue

Ask, tell, then go fight the bad guys

It's great to finally see people treating the US military's "don't ask - don't tell" nonsense as the irrational woo that it is. The other night Colin Powell and Clifford Alexander separately addressed this issue on Rachel Maddow, and I thought Alexander in particular laid out the despicable illogic of the military's standing position.





I'm not a military specialist, so I can't address that side of this issue. But I do think this whole issue of gays in the… Continue

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
