A comfortable fit

Compared to some of the blogs and comments on AN and in other places across the internet, I'm a relatively newbie of a free thinker. I'm 53 years old and have only been free of religion for almost 3 years. I won't go into detail of my journey here as it's nothing monumental or fantastic. Let's just say that my hubby got me to thinking along those lines (we're both atheists now) and George Bush sealed the deal. Huh. Never thought I'd thank Georgie for anything...

I tried going back to… Continue

Hi-ho hi-ho, it's back to school I go.

The last day of freedom. Tomorrow I'll be back at health school, trying to get the bit of paper that says I'm qualified to do the job I've been doing for the past 12 years. Actually, it's long overdue but it was only in 2008 it became possible to get work experience credited and only take the theory part of the training. The other option has been to start again as a trainee on a trainee salary and spen 8 months in work experience as well as 6 months at school, so it's not so bad. I'll be… Continue

islam: barbaric, misogynistic pedophiles

I found a video that put me over the edge last night. I tried to sleep on it, but it just made me so angry. islam is such a hypocritical lie. How dare they call themselves the religion of peace? See the picture of the little girl? She's 9. Does she look like she should be married? Does she look like she's ready for sex? NO. Freaking… Continue

Does atheism define you?

Does atheism define you?

Absolutely not. Atheism doesn't reflect something you are, it reflects something you are not. It is of no substance by itself. Not believing in something doesn't define who you are, just like not believing in fairies doesn't define who you are. Most people are "afairiest," in that they don't believe in fairies. Does your afairiesm define you? Of course not. Have you even heard of the term? Probably not, because it is as meaningless as the term atheism. We can… Continue

Suicide and Immoral Comfort

My wife's sixteen-year-old brother committed suicide on Saturday night. Apparently, he was upset because his girlfriend wouldn't kiss him and he hated the military school he was in (surely among other things). There is nothing that can prepare you for the horror of such a thing happening to someone really close to you.

Though there is nothing that can prepare you, there are definitely some things which some say in order to offer comfort which makes everything considerably worse! At the top… Continue

Interview with Morgan Mathew of Think Atheist

My post Atheist showdown… netted a number of comments and visits to the blog, as suggested in the comments I sent Morgan Mathew, the impetus behind Think Atheist some questions which he has kindly answered below.

Morgan can you give us a rundown on your road to Atheism(were you always an atheist)?

I was always an atheist, I just did not know it. My parents tried to get me baptized as a baby and found out quickly that the church wanted all kinds of money to get a… Continue

Abstinence Ideology Cost in Tax Funds

2001- $73 million

2008- $204 million

Grand Total: $1.5 Billion

Given the current state of affairs I pretty much place trust in an Abstinence program as mush as I do Wall Street. To Quote Ellen Goodman of the Boston Globe “Our national investment in abstinence-only may not be a scam on the scale of Bernie Madoff. But this industry has had standards for truth as loose as some mortgage lenders. It manufactures a product as ill-suited to the… Continue

Adam Smith's "Invisible Hand"

Is Adam Smith's "Invisible Hand" theory of economic prosperity part and parcel of a theocratic fiscal policy?

First blog, about me

Good day all, let me start by saying this is my first social networking site and first blog post of all time! I could only fight against the times for so long.

A little about myself: I've been an atheist since I was very young. I can't recall any one event that drove me to freeing myself from the bonds of the christian faith, but rather a long progression of little things that made me question and wonder. My family knows and has come to accept it over time, though I find myself in a… Continue

Another skeptical semester begins

Tomorrow our semester starts back, which means I have to return to the classroom. It is always hard to go back after a semester break. For me the dread is not because of teaching - necessarily - but because of all the useless wastes of time that accompany a semester in term. Faculty meetings rise to the top of the hate list. Perhaps I'll do more blogging during faculty meetings this time around... I think that helps.

Anyway, this semester I'm teaching a course on the environment,… Continue

Youtube DMCA Channel

You may have heard of creationist attempts to silence critics on Youtbe by filing false DMCA claims.

Several youtube gurus , many of whom have experienced the immoral tactics of creationists, have banded together to pool their resources and subscribers together to fight this sort of behavior on youtube and to pressure youtube to do something about it.

Below is the video announcing the Channel, do yourself a favour and subscribe.

20 Reasons I Am godless

Today I wrote about 20 reasons I am godless. I'm sure there are lots more than 20, but it was a good start. Suggestions and refinements to my list are most welcome. :)

The loneliness of the insomniac

I find it impossible to sleep on a regular basis. It really helps if I have somebody to chat with! Anybody willing to talk intelligent atheist stuff (or any fuckin' random thing) with a lesbian in the middle of the night? Message me!

God's Work

My recent blog post deconstructed an old joke about God. Here are three more. Each of these depicts God in a way that requires humans to do stuff, thus giving a divine permission to behave immorally.

Joke 1

Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, "Don't do it!" He said, "Nobody loves me." I said, "God loves you. Do you believe in… Continue

Happy new year. Happy, happy. I want to be a happy, healthy, hopeful atheist, but throughout the workweek, whenever the obligatory supernaturalism is projected onto incidents by the ignorant around me and I reply placidly that it might be better to go with a reasonable explanation of world events, often as not, I get this tiresome response: "I don't know HOW you can do that- how can you live without believing in something?" And then comes the inevitable, "Well, you can believe what you want,… Continue

On being an Atheist with M.S.

The Man I Was

I used to remember everything

I could work the show and run the game

That man is dead

He has been replaced with a mockery

Just to tease me

The new Me




What to say

What to do

All I can do now is repeat

Stories of my past

Like a demented parrot

Who only remembers half of what he has said

What are the chances of a future

Because I feel I have

No… Continue

Holiday aftermath

We had my family over for xmas this year. My dad and his wife, Debbie where first to arrive. Marc brought his family of five through the snow. Even the elusive Casey brought Julie from his current home in Vegas.

Unfortunately, Janet discovered my rearanging of the letters of the Santa stocking holders just before my dad arrived. I did get in one more spelling of Satan that lasted a few hours while Dad was here. It's the least I could do after he took the liberty to gather everybody… Continue
