To The Soul

nos es deus



so

what is there left?





we have seen the sky, we know the dirt, we have 4 names and a solid lack of understanding about white noise

a quiet uncertainty about the absolute

and a dead wish to conquer the universe.



nos es deus



so

where do we go?





we must build a boat out of the speed of night

and sail it into oblivion

we must let our breath escape our throat

and vibrate the… Continue

To The Shine

if I could stop breathing

for just a minute

I might remember who I used to be

those villains

and victims

that vitriol that used to run through me as quickly as mercury

and if I close my eyes tight enough

and try to look backwards

I might start compensating for the nights it was too loud inside of my head to sleep

those nights I’d lie on my back

watching the ceiling start to buckle

breaking into tiny fractals of light too intricate to look… Continue

To The Shade

Why grasp at straws

or dream that thought is an option

and death is simply a return home?



Or ask for proof of absence

a division by zero

and cling to it like the sunrise to the horizon?



Why wear masks made of morphine and metaphor

-both false poison and its’ sugar pill cure?



If truth is, then it is this:

we were born to be a brief series of inhales and exhales

we should be taught to be transient, intrinsically

to outrun… Continue

Dogma Free America

I have listened to Rich Orman's Dogma Free America for a couple of years and love his international flavor to understanding the impact of religion on the world. This week he had me on his podcast to talk about The God Virus. You can listen to it on iTunes or download it from his website: http://dogmafreeamerica.com/index.php?post_id=452268

Rich has a great interview style and certainly did his homework before the podcast. Take a listen and let me know what you think.

Atheists and Christian marriage???

Me and my boyfriend have been dating a few years now, both atheists. Now all the sudden he thinks there is a god and he needs to go to church and read the bible.

What is your opinion about Atheist Churches? Erm...

What a bizarre question. I think we call 'em 'pubs' 'round these parts.

Praying Pilot

Justice? Sounds like it to me. Taking even two seconds to pray before crashing is too long when trying to save peoples' lives. He may think his life was spared by his imaginary god, but what a cruel joke his god played on him by sending him to jail for 10 years.



From Reuters:



PALERMO (Reuters) - A Tunisian pilot who paused to pray instead of taking emergency measures before crash-landing his plane, killing 16 people, has been sentenced to 10 years in jail by an Italian… Continue

Ahhhh. The Sunset, a Flat-Earther, and Thou

From Overheard at the Beach

Enraptured girl, watching sunset with boyfriend: I just love it when the sun sinks into the sea like this! But I have a question...
Boy: Huh? What?
Girl, turning serious: Why doesn't the sea boil?

A Private Little Rant

A little girl named Sandra Cantu disappeared about a week ago from her home, not 50 miles from where I live. Yesterday they found her body, stuffed in a suitcase and dumped in an irrigation pond.



I knew that if they hadn't found her within 48 hours, she would most likely not be found alive.



Every day the newscasts out here started out with clips of the people gathered around her home, praying for her safe return and begging the kidnapper to bring her home. Her fliers were… Continue

Pray in one hand......

Last night I was surfing the TV. I came across Preacher Rick Warren talking about dealing with being unemployed. Yup, it was chock full of religion. Funny how he never ever mentioned that in this day and age it is a part of life. And since it is a part of today’s life, one must learn how to deal with it.

Praying after you've lost your job may make you feel better, but it won't help you find a job. Trust me on this, I've been there and known people who've been there.

A few years ago… Continue

Movie Review: Ressources humaines (Human Resources)



Human Resources



Franck has been studying for the French equivalent of an MBA, so is sent to his home town for an internship in the assembly plant where his father has worked for 30 years.



We can see it coming: the dynamic between boss and worker.



But this gets much deeper. Here we might see our own lives, whether we work in retail, or management, or anything most… Continue

Vermont legislature overrides veto to legalize gay marriage

Vermont Legislature Makes Same-Sex Marriage Legal



MONTPELIER, Vt. — The Vermont Legislature on Tuesday overrode Gov. Jim Douglas’s veto of a bill allowing gay couples to marry, mustering one more vote than needed to preserve the measure.



The step makes Vermont the first state to allow same-sex marriage through legislative action instead of a court ruling. The law goes into effect… Continue

I was god bothered on Sunday morning

I gave as good as I got. I don't think they were expecting someone who knows a little of the Bible and, more importantly, its cultural context (albeit very little. Not much more than I've learned reading Dawkins, Hitchens and watching various rants on the internet!)

I hadn't been god bothered for years and was getting itchy to try out my new found knowledge.

Off they went, twittering in to the mid day sun, Watchtowers flapping impotently in the breeze.

Apathetic Atheists

I have two atheist friends who are annoyed at my anger and my need to keep up on things regarding religion and atheism. I orginally thought that it was because both of them are pretty much self-employed recluses, and thus they aren't subjected to a whole lot of Christianity. They don't have to watch co-workers say prayers before meetings. They can put Darwin fish on their cars without fear of reprisal. In fact, they have told me, barely hiding their irritation, that I really shouldn't be so… Continue
