Caramel Filled Jesus

Easter's right around the corner.



How do I, a snarky atheist, know this? Good question.



I know because I work at my local public library which is gearing up for the annual "Easter Egg Hunt". That's right ladies and gentlemen, you can put your minds at ease (as is so often the case with people of faith) knowing that your tax dollars are well spent... on candy filled plastic eggs.



Now before you get all pissy (atheists and theists alike) here's what I have to… Continue

Zombie Holiday?

I am not looking forward to the next Christian holiday, Easter. I get tired of people wishing me "Happy Easter" and assuming that I believe like them. What do you say to people that give you these greetings? I think it should be the Zombie Holiday.

growing up godless

I was raised hyper-religious. Between the time of my son's birth and his third birthday, I became an atheist. Bringing home a tiny little perfect healthy infant was a huge factor in that. I looked at my son and saw no sin in him. It made me begin questioning a lot of assumptions. I'll post more on my own deconversion later, but for now I'd like to talk a bit about how I personally tackle the issues of myth, religion, and belief within my own childrearing.



1.) I talk about religion… Continue

Artificial Brains

No, this post is not about the DI...



There's been some news in the past week about recent advances in research to build artificial brains. There's a nice summary over on NeuroLogica.



Anyway, it got me to thinking... There is little doubt in my mind that we will eventually succeed in building an artificial brain, a device capable of replicating the natural processes that occur inside our own skull. When that…

THE RATIONAL STORY OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN

The story begins with Adam and Eve wandering happily around the garden without a stitch of clothing, just like small children. In spite of their nakedness they unashamedly chat with the Big Daddy Yahweh whenever he chooses to visit. They are blissfully unaware of the difference between good and evil so they do not realize that nakedness is immoral. Like children, they don’t have any responsibilities. There is no need to work because the garden is full of food that can simply be plucked off… Continue

1st post is 1st

I heard about Atheist Nexus from a few people, but I haven't had the time to really play around with it yet. I'm planning on getting everything set up soonish, I'm just probably one of the laziest people ever to walk to Earth.



Recently my cousin got married. I'm really happy that she's happy and her new husband is really a good man for her. I was just very disappointed by the ceremony itself. Basically, the preacher spoke a lot about about men and women can only be happy with the… Continue

Family: A Rant

The night we returned from Texas I opened an email from my mother. She and my father divorced just about 20 years ago. She's in the middle of a move that signifies a change in her life, so she was going through old photographs, reflecting on the family she had, what was lost and some of her regrets. This turned into a long heartfelt letter to my father. I didn't read it but she gave me enough info to get the jist of it. Basically she on some level regrets the divorce and the path she has been… Continue

Two Types of Believers, Rought Draft

Belief



Is belief a matter of choice? This is a central question to me lately. Faith, is a matter of choice, dogma is a matter of choice, but when considering belief, the idea is a bit murkier.



According to the New Oxford American Dictionary the definition of belief is:



belief |biˈlēf|

noun

1 an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists

• something one accepts as true or real; a firmly held opinion or…

Battlefield of the Mind

My grandma gave me this Christian book today. (I spare her the knowledge that I'm an atheist. She wouldn't be able to handle it.) She likes Joyce Meyer. Some of you who have been Christians may recognize her name.

My first thought was that the title by itself says a lot about the mentality. I know that I battled fruitlessly 24 hours a day when I was a Christian and now I have peace with myself and my thoughts. I of course sometimes feel confused and now and then attempt to adjust my… Continue

Finding Life's Meaning

Theists frequently make the statement that, without religion and God, there would be no purpose or meaning in life. It's somewhat offensive, but definitely misguided. I decided to philosophize about it a bit in my latest blog post at RationalityNow, if you're interested.

Cheers!

Ethical Society and confronting the religious

I will be speaking this Sunday, April 29 to the St. Louis Ethical Society, 9001 Clayton Rd. St. Louis . Hope to see some of the Atheist Nexus members there.



I was discussing the issue of Atheist behavior toward theists with a colleague recently and thought I would put up my answer to one of his questions:



In my talks, I often try and discuss the four principles of communication with a theist (p. 182 of The God Virus). Unfortunately, I find that there is a good deal of… Continue
