And I finally give in...

Goodnight everyone, my name is Vyktor and I'm a new member of the Nexus. I never thought I'd be joining a social site, since I don't see much purpose for them, until (oh, that word) I came across a link to this place in vjack's Atheist Revolution. So I gave in. Anyway, it's good to be here.

Astral

Between the great and sublime

We lie down to sleep

Near the calm of trees

We breathe heavily

Watching up at the starry sky

Seeing which cannot be seen

Feeling only what our bodies cannot feel

Is this the end of the world?

Between the earth and the skies

In the embracement of light

We are fulfilled

"There is so much more to be said

There is so much more to be done"

We hear they whisper

While we rest underneath the heavy… Continue

Choice & Religion

Free will is completely necessary within religion, with the most heavy emphasis I've experienced being placed upon Christianity. The Christian god is said to have created Adam and Eve, and given them free will. Were they perfect creations of God? No, apparently not. Their intelligence was incredibly limited and God knew that this free will would bring them into pain and sin, yet he gave it to them anyway. He knew what path every single person on earth would take because of his choice. The… Continue

Aliens

Yes, they're out there. The question is not about whether they exist or not, but about *what they'd like for breakfast*. Preferably, of course, the answer should exclude words like `us` in favour of things like `marmelade` or `fried eggs on toast`.

If you had a pet alien, what would you feed it?

Blogging

My first blog was a quick failure. Called, Rational Thought, it got something like 3 comments. I created it at the same time I was attempting podcasting. Boy, that podcasting thing didn't last long. It came and went in just a few months, superseded by sites like YouTube.



My next blog was on Yahoo360. I really enjoyed it. I had made a few friends off of Yahoo Answers and they carried over to the 360 site. I stopped blogging there for a variety of reasons... mainly because I felt that… Continue

um.....blogs

Well, I'm not about to try 2 blogs at once, but I do blog on occasion over at www.blueglowy.com
I also have music and photos and stuff there. Check it out.

Also, anyone know how to search for members by location? Is that possible?

My Blog

I can't keep two blogs at once, either, so I'll just link to the two blogs I write at:
http://antichristian-phenomenon
http://bluelinchpin.wordpress.com (My personal opinion blog on politics and atheism/religion)

Maybe I'll switch my personal nonsense blog to here.

My Actual Blogs

No way am I going to try to keep track of another blog; so I'll just put in a post with the links to the blogs I can actually keep up with:

Crappy Poetry

Communing with Nature

Bicycling on a country road in the middle of the day,

a grey fox pads across the road in front of me.



We both pause.



For a moment, I commune with nature and enjoy this silent meeting.

Then I realize, foxes are nocturnal and this one is dying of rabies











Obedience Training

Puppies must be exposed to other dogs

in order to socialize them.

Banned from Conservapedophiliac

This is hilarious. I signed up on Conservative Wikipedia the other day (I won't even give them the benefit of linking), and I found today that I am "banned." Here it what it says:

Group Asks for Divine Intervention to Ease Oil Prices



If this isn't the epitome of the desperation that breeds religious belief, I don't know what is. I can just see a primal tribe, dancing around the gas station parking lot, hoping that the magical sign drops a cent, and if it does, just once, they'll believe they caused it.



It's about as… Continue

Science-Fiction and Christianity

This post was imported from Livejournal on 2008.07.18



furikku posted a link to someone's blog entry about Science-Fiction being taboo, comparing it to Christianity, because some evangelicals remark that Christianity is "taboo" in this country. So this entry was satirically making the point that it's ridiculous to think that Science-Fiction could be called "taboo," and… Continue

Science....it works

This is a huge topic, I know. But it concerns us all to be armed with knowledge and converging arguments that will aid in our ability to defend science.







Science, as a progressive body of knowledge, reworks its findings, and distributes its discoveries to our society through its innovations and fundamental understanding. There is a reason inventions such as internal combustion engines, the telephone, satellite imaging and electricity were not assembled until just these… Continue

Houston Chronicle

Alex,

A writer in your previous town of resident wrote a gem of an editorial about the presidential hopefuls' religious pissing contest. I was surprised something like this could come out of Texas.

Maybe Alabama will be next.

Maybe not.

It's Hard to Be an Atheist on Christmas

Atheism and Christmas: Should Atheists Ignore Christmas or Celebrate It?



This was a good read. It's inspired me to write about my own personal experience with this. I've been struggling with this a lot in the past 4-5 years.



My family is religious, but not overly so. Methodism is one of most liberal denominations of… Continue

Is There a God?

Tonight, the debate is on between Richard Dawkins and John Lennox at the Alys Stephens Center in Birmingham, AL. I'm incredibly excited. I wasn't able to get tickets to this event, but there are going to be multiple casts of it available to watch/listen to.

Neat New Labels

This post was imported from Livejournal on 2008.07.18



We all love labels. Who doesn't? It's a way to tell someone a lot of information about a person without having to explain a lot. This can get us into a lot of trouble when labels are ambiguous or in transitional states. For example, atheism/theism/agnosticism. The zeitgeist right now seems to be the following:

-Atheists actively believe there are no gods.

-Agnostics aren't sure if there are any gods, but are open… Continue
