Ahh, the JOYS of Mothering a Teenage Girl ...

She's 14 and she snuck into a night club on Friday night with another little friend.



First she lied to me and said that she was gonna spend the night at the friend's house. So I called to check up on her and she was clearly at a party with a lot of kids yelling in the background. I asked to talk to her friend's mother and she handed the phone to a teenage boy who tried to fake a grown man's voice and tell me that he was the other girl's father. When I asked for the address to pick… Continue

What a Christian learned from an atheist (headline)




Once in a while, you have to take your lumps. And lumps were taken.



If you are not an atheist and plan to write a column or blog post or other public-square item about atheism, as happened here two weeks ago, take fair warning from the one with the lumps. Mind your p's and q's. Watch what you write. Check it twice. Better still, ask yourself --- do you… Continue

A pleasing story about crossing the gap..

E-Mail activism



Stan Nelson of the Pueblo Chieftan penned this article



"The excitement of the moment in the nonfiction publishing industry is the cause of atheism.



Because public appearances sell books, the authors - including scientist Richard Dawkins and essayist Christopher Hitchens - go on the road to deliver talks and speeches to support their points of view, which, in turn, support book sales.



Christians always should pay attention when… Continue

jungle missionaries and babies

It seems to me when I hear people debate certain topics of the Christian religion that people don't know how Christians justify certain things. Thought I'd mention it just to educate anyone who might want to debate certain points.

They believe that anyone believing in another religion will go to hell, as we well know. Now this brings up the subject of people in remote parts of this world who have never heard of Christianity or if they have they don't really know what it's about. How do… Continue

Nontheist morality

I think that many atheists, when deciding or coming to terms with their own moral precepts, eventually fall into one of several philosophies for guiding their decision-making.



Socialism

Objectivism

Scientific method

Law and order

democratic rule

hedonism



(this list is by no means comprehensive, but I think that it encompasses a lot of us)



A socialist atheist follows the precept that the good of the community promotes the ultimate good of… Continue

Christian Morality





Scellus et Poena, by Emery Wang (1990)



So, here's the question: Do Christians behave morally in order to ensure they get the joys of the heaven and avoid the torments… Continue

I'll do it again

More reason to eliminate Religion



"I will do it again" was the comment of Lord Our Righteousness Church's leader Wayne Bent.

The self-proclaim Messiah Wayne Bent is accused of and being tried for sex crimes against two of his teenage followers.

However, he "insists that he did nothing wrong by lying naked with the teenage girls, and that it's common for him to kiss and embrace any member of his group."

All the members of this Christian cult need to… Continue

WHERE DO GODS GO WHEN THEY DIE?

Today's Saturday, and I'm wondering, at random...whatever happened to Mr. Saturn? Nobody loves him, anymore. For centuries, millions of men, women and children prayed fervently to him, staked their hopes and dreams on him, and now- he's reduced to a gas giant planet and a gas giant car and a special day every week, a day without presents. No sacrifices, no blood, no nada.



Same goes for the rest of the week- 8 days a week, we got a god, but ain't nobody praying to any of 'em. Freia… Continue

Bible pounder attempting to be funny...or cute...

Joined Face Book. Joined an atheist group. Got this posting from this guy about how April 1st, okay, April Fools day is the only day that atheist have that equates to say, Xmas. Well, I read it and thought about responding to the clown. Then I read that he'll then have access to others on my "Friends" list.

I thought about it, and decided not to respond to the clown. I figured, "why should this twit bother others like me?" So I didn't respond. Wanted too, but didn't.

Now I could have,… Continue

Darwinian Natural Selection in Today's Society

(Originally posted on my personal blog, BrainlessGeorge.com.)



I stand firm with my thoughts on Darwinian Natural Selection. I’m quite sure that it has happened in humans in even recorded history. I think that the technological advances, and forms of entertainment, all have implications of evoluation. Since the dawn of man we’ve been evolving and furthering our thinking.



Why?



To better survive in an ever changing… Continue

Sexual Dealing

One of my favorite comedic writers is Chelsea Handler. For those of you who don't know, Chelsea Handler is a standup comedienne, who is a current host of Chelsea Lately on E!. She has written two comedic books: My Horizontal Life: The Collection of One Night Stands and Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea. I have to admit when reading her books (especially Horizontal) that I'm pretty jealous of how open sexually she is as a woman, and she's very human at the same time!



Raised as a… Continue

Lovely Carl Sagan quote

The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what’s true.

The Geek Trio

I really should stay away from Amazon. I spend far too much money on there. Today, my purchases included Geek Love, Geek Logik, and Geek Chic. Those will all go nicely with the "GeeKISSexy" t-shirt I just purchased from - where else? - ThinkGeek.com

Unfounded beliefs

http://www.timesdaily.com/article/20081212/ARTICLES/812120351



Recently, a reader wrote about their struggles with Christianity. I have been through similar struggles myself, though I have reached a conclusion contrary to that of the former contributor. As I grew older I began to see the Old Testament more as a justification for atrocity than an account chronicling the chosen people of God. Seeking solace in the New Testament left me peering into the heart of my religion, only to find… Continue

End of the semester

For the past week I have:

- find time to eat/sleep/drink...lots of time for that.



Whenever this Thesis gets me down, I will crank up the music that inspired it:… Continue

Surprise!

Since I'm a senior in high school, I've been getting a lot of stuff from colleges interested in me. Phone calls, mailers, email, DVDs, you get the idea. Usually they just ask how my college search is going, and since I've decided to attend my community college first, the calls have shortened considerably.



I just got a call from Simpson U, a college in I-don't-know-where. The guy on their end asks me casually how I'm doing (this seems to be the most common question). Then he talks a… Continue

Alleged abuse of abducted 'miracle child' poses more questions for council that failed Baby P

More reasons to eliminate religion.



Why are the most abusive, sadistic and evil people are the ones "God" seems to chose to lead his "flock"? Have any of you believers, stop, just for a second, and pay attention to God's judgement? Oh! I know, you guys are to busy believing and praying, with your eyes close, to this so-called God. As a result, you guys fail to recognised all the atrocious crimes his "spiritual" picked leaders are committing. Yes, they all claimed to be chosen… Continue

President George W. Bush

W said in an interview that the Bible is "probably not" literally true.

I'm not surprised, but I find it hilarious the religious right were "stunned" LOL
Anyone with a thinking brain knows the Republicans used them to gain power, but did little for them once they took over. Silly people
