Teaching Humanism to the Military

I have a serious question. The Vermont National Guard put out a request for sources - for a program that is a LOT like my Living Made Simpler program in terms of topics they want discussed. (see:

Obviously - it's the military - a non-religious secular approach to a discussion of ethics and personal responsibility and the dignity and worth of each…

AronRa and Words – “The Details are Everything”

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less." "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things." "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master—that's all."

-- Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

In my experience, if you can't say what you mean, you can never mean what you say. The details are everything.…

Atheism isn't enough - and it isn't very satisfying

I'm an atheist. Have been since I stopped being agnostic when i was a teen. I went through a 2 week existential depression and realized,  nope, don't believe and that was that. I literally cannot imagine what it is like to believe in supernaturalism never having experienced that with the exception of some dabbling with a ouiga board while a tween. 

I'm not shy about my atheism. It's part of who I am and part of my philosophical development. And that's key = it's part of my…

“The Faith of Christopher Hitchens” …In Which I Read Snake Oil

I’m starting to wonder if it isn’t the fate of prominent atheists to end up with Christian apologists for spokesmen. Okay, I don’t literally believe in fate (either), but let’s just say the pattern is starting to look a little too common.

Read more here.

Why Humanism should matter to atheists

There is a lot of confusion about Humanism within the atheist community.

First, not everyone knows what it is. Those that do often think of it as a form of atheism. Some people think of Humanism as a nice way to say you are an atheist without triggering the negativity association with the word…

Diffrerent paths to Humanism

I don't hide my Humanism. I have learned over the years of being out that I do harm by hiding my values.  People want and need to learn about this secular philosophy, so every time we hide our humanism and talk about something else, we prevent these people from finding a philosophic home that will not only help them live better, but it will allow them to finally through off the last vestiges of religious thought. 

There are a lot of different ways people come to Humanism. Some…

Captain Spaulding, Chakras, and Ghost Hunts: A Skeptic's Weekend At A Horror Convention

If you can’t tell by my attached photo gallery, I absolutely love the horror and supernatural genres of entertainment. Alfred Hitchcock, Vincent Price, George Romero, Quentin Tarantino, Boris Karloff, and Peter Cushing? Cannot get enough. I love the macabre art inspired by all things dark and taboo. Little coffins decorated with favorite…

Jehova Told Me To Act -- When Religious Shepherds Fail Their Flocks

Jehovah spoke to me, told me to act. Vester Flanagan.

America, we have to stop the double standard being applied to Christianity. Just like in Islam, and even within Hinduism, you have your extremists. Still many Christians beg me not to judge the entirety of their religion, yet turn right around and…

Making a mockery of the principle of charity: or see how easy it is to ridicule atheism when you don't understand it

People become atheists for all sorts of reasons, but one of the more commonly cited reasons is that atheism is a rational and reasonable position to take based on the lack of evidence for the existence of any sort of god. However, it is not uncommon for religious believers to argue that atheism is somehow based on faith and is inherently irrational, presumably more so than standard religious beliefs. A recent example of an attempt to argue for the irrationality of atheism can be seen in…

Pastor Jeffress: Jesus Wasn't a Law-Breaking Hippie, Condemns Fellow Churches

I normally make an effort to go out of my way to avoid any news stories coming out of FOX news. I also do what I can to not bother responding to any discussion panels either. There is one draw that will get my attention, and keep it, in a FOX news article. Pastors, politics, and biblical scripture.…

It's Not The Hatfield and The McCoys...But It's Pretty Close

You know, I love mug shots where the perps have big grins on their faces. Specifically, the cat ate the canary kind of look. This week’s headlines managed to present one that couldn’t be missed, and dare I say, I think there are even twinkles in the eyes of these men. In the…

It's Either "One Nation Under God" Or Bite My Ass And Leave

Humanity can be so obstinate when it finds a cause to support. I deal with this stubborn natured characteristic all the time whenever I discuss politics, religion, or economics with the locals in my current home town. In particular, my next door neighbor Chuck epitomizes the title of this article in the very literal sense. Yes, this man has said to me…

Answers In Genesis Creation Museum Legal Discrimination Practices In Hiring

Earlier this week, I received one of my usual spammy job listings emails. You know, the head hunter types that have job potentials to check out since my “skill set matches what the employer is looking for.” Naturally, I never look at such emails because I am completely satisfied working for the postal…

Axiological atheism an argument for atheism

Anthropocentric argument for atheism:

Axiological (or constructive) atheism favors humanity as the absolute source of ethics and values, and permits individuals to resolve moral problems without resorting to gOD. Marx, Nietzsche, Sartre and Freud all used this argument to some extent to convey messages of liberation, full-development, and unfettered happiness.

(This quote is taken from: Atheism - By Branch / Doctrine - The Basics of Philosophy)…
