On The Incident In Orlando – Seth Andrews and Kaveh Mousavi

Every now and then, Seth Andrews will ignore his to-do list and publish an unscheduled podcast when his mindset or an event demands it.  It should surprise no one, then, that Seth has produced a piece couching his own thoughts regarding what happened at the Pulse nightclub and all the reactions, reasonable and otherwise.  The YouTube version of that podcast follows here.

I wanted to draw attention, though, to an important segment of that piece.  Toward the end, Seth reads the…

The real source of Muslim violence?

I’m going to start publishing this post after every act of Muslim fanaticism, suicide, and murder. 

I felt like starting it after the Ft. Hood massacre.  A psychiatrist(!) with openly Muslim fanatic leanings cold-bloodedly murders dozens of soldiers in one of their own facilities (where they are prohibited from carrying guns).  Surprise! It’s called a workplace incident and buried forever.

WHEN will we call the enemy by its right name?  And I don’t mean the argument about…

Blowing themselves up for raisins, not virgins

I heard this well-documented etymological error explained again on Fareed Zakaria's CNN show, which told me that a lot of well-informed people aren't aware of it, and I wanted to be sure that my fellow heretics are.

Armies of crazed, angry young Muslim men, who never had a job, an education, or a date, are blowing themselves up every day because they expect a paradise of 72 virgins, but the holy text uses a word that could very likely mean "raisins," which makes sense -- fruit was…

Once again, folks: It's about RELIGION .

Once again, a Muslim targets the military and slaughters Americans.  Once again, motives are sought.  He was such a nice guy.  He came back from the Middle East, and he was somehow different. I am still waiting for someone (why not a secular organization?) to have the courage to say that yes, he was different: his mind was taken over by a vile, heinous, psychotic RELIGIOUS fantasy.  

On CNN, law officers in impressive uniforms vow to find out why he did it.  The closest that the media…

Sexism in Islam

Qur’an (4:11) – (Inheritance) “The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females” (see also verse 4:176).

Qur’an (2:282) – (Court testimony) Establishes that a woman’s testimony is worth only half that of a man’s in court (there is no “he said/she said” gridlock in Islam).“And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women.” Muslim apologists have sometimes creatively tried to explain why a woman’s testimony…

Readings from the Quran: infidels beware!

“The Bible.  That is what fools have written, what imbeciles command, what rogues teach, and young children are made to learn by heart.”



In my continuing efforts (I’ll be writing letters to the editor on this subject) to confront liberal Westerners, especially PC mealy-mouthed apologists like Obama, with the vile truth of what Muslims are required to believe, I provide a few quotes from Sam Harris’ The End of Faith.

I cringe when I…

I have been chatting with a person from Yemen on the internet and so looked into the history, politics religion, and geology of that ancient nation. It is an arid land and beautiful as that kind of temperature zone is in its way. One of the videos I watched gets at the heart of what I find so impossible to accept regarding Islam. Take a look and share your reactions. …

Suggested Obama speech draft: "The Real Enemy"

My fellow Americans,

Tonight I speak from the heart.  My words are not ghostwritten or focus group tested.  This is what I, as leader of the free world, truly believe.

Let me talk about the real nature of terrorism (the kind that most affects us, since many different terrorist groups wreak havoc around the world).  And let me call the enemy by its real name.

Violent Muslim attacks on Western countries -- and let's face it, they ARE Muslim, and I apologize for my verbal…

What is it like to live in a theocratic country ?


It’s 4:30 am and I jump awake from my sleep. a loud voice from the mosque can be heard “allahu akbar” this is Adhan or the Muslim call to pray and ….it’s a long one ; I try to go back to sleep because I set the alarm clock for 7:30 am . After eating the breakfast, I have to decide what I’m going to wear that is considered right and “Safe” by the “moral police”. Moral police is an organized patrol force licensed by the government, their duty is to look for what they consider…

The Best Larping Around: Religious Services

Let's talk about a past time I thoroughly enjoy now and then.


For those unfamiliar, LARP is an acronym for Live Action Role Play. Essentially, a bunch of similarly minded folks get together and collaborate to have fun pretending scenes out of their favorite movies, books, comics, etc. This is strictly pretending, of course, but with rules involved. The basic goal of LARPing (yes, you can make the acronym a verb, how cool!) is to create a desired fantasy environment… Continue

The Particular Problem with Islam

On Sunday morning, 12 October, 2014, I listened to Reza Aslan as he spent three minutes saying next to nothing of consequence regarding the contretemps of a week ago between Sam Harris and Ben Affleck on Real Time with Bill Maher.  Whatever Aslan wanted to accomplish with his vacuous commentary is beyond me, which doesn’t stop me from seeing it and him as being problematic as…

Religion is a creator of hate

History repeats itself, over and over and over again. This is why I think there is no such thing as a god, jesus, salvation, redemption, or any of the other claims people who act as if they know make. If there were a god, there would be a universal god, one who empowered all people around the Earth to flourish, they would know how to solve problems and resolve conflict. No, the gods that exist in the minds of Homo sapiens are constructs created in the mind of humans to explain things they do…

OH MY!!!!! And I mean.. OH MY!!

So my girlfriend is studying to become a lay minister within her Church. I even helped her pay for a class.  She knows I’m an atheist and is fine with that. And I’m fine with the fact she is a Christian.

Well, during the class someone mentioned, know how…ATHESISTS….

Ya know what the instructor told the class.

Atheists tend to have and behave more “Christian” then the Christians.

That took a lot of people aback.

Kinds throws a different like on…

The Battle for Zachary's Brain, IX; "Can I show that to Daddy?"

There is nothing that is too obvious of an absurdity to be firmly planted in the human head as long as you begin to instill before the age of five by constantly repeating it with an air of great seriousness.

– Arthur Schopenhauer

Followers of the riveting “Zachary’s Brain” series of posts will know that the narrative is not a Gothic horror tale…but something that is just as disturbing: resisting the religious programming of a child.

His step-mother,…

Religions: My New Definition: Hijackers Of Childhood/Atheistic Wonderment Of Everything For Dubious Agendas.

During our early childhood years as young Atheists (Implicit Atheism, no knowledge nor care about Gods) most of us had an overwhelming wonderment for absolutely everything, I spent my childhood examining everything I could find and wondered how it all worked and was related to myself, if given a present involving technology, within two days it would be in pieces as I investigated what made it move or make noises, blow air, etc.... 

This wonderment followed me into my early teens and…

Refresher Course In Work Place Prosyletizing

Over the course of the past two weeks, I have undergone training courses at my new employer's office. Typically, you get to meet everyone you will be working with, and I had a couple days of shadow training. Essentially, I was riding along side my trainer, watching how she…

A simple question

Hello everybody, this is my first blog post here

A few days ago I decided to read my religion's book, the Quran, as to become a more enlightened atheist, and also because people here believe in Jen and witchcraft so much I began to question myself.

and every time I call bullshit, someone tells me but it's in the Quran!!

I'm really bothered by loads upon loads of threats of going to hell if you didn't follow that or this, I mean maybe if we eliminated the threats the Quran…

Who are the true "Islamophobes"?

To be "phobic" of something is normally taken to mean to be frightened of it. The Greek word phobos actually means fear or terror, so it would make sense to think that people who are "Islamophobic" are those who are frightened of Islam. However, in recent times, the term "islamophobic" has been used to describe those who publicly criticise Islam such as Richard Dawkins and other "new atheists" e.g. in a …

Memorial Day 2013: Not for MY Freedom

"To lead an uninstructed people to war is to throw them away."

An insight on why I criticize Religion, and anything that's associated with it.

I don't agree to religion. It proves to be a great hindrance for anyone who would like to make strides in progressing forward.

If you think that you need to belief in a deity and a constructed set of beliefs passed down from history to pave you a path for self-control, then you're one of those people very frail of mind...something that you straight-away deny from the very start.

Religion can and will be criticized for any problems and wrongs that it contains. To consider it as…
