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…

Jesus on billboards.

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)…

Axiological atheism unsympathetic toward gODs.

Axiological atheism takes a very strong and not particularly sympathetic line toward gODs. Axiological atheism goes beyond the daunting dictum that "gOD is dead" to add "And good riddance too." Axiological atheism stance is that of the person who says " I just can't think of any sort of being worthy of the name of gOD whose existence I would be prepared to welcome."

(This quote is taken from the pro-religion book: "Issues in the Philosophy of Religion")

Axiological atheism does…

A Child Asks About gOD?

What do you do as an atheist when a child asks about gOD?


I think authenticity with children is best, just like all people. I see this the same as when a child asks about gay. 


What I do is simply say what I think not that it is how everyone else sees things. I am a more extreme atheist then most atheists and I tell them that to. I say I am atheist reject all gods as fake and reject all religions as untrue as well. I say this is only how I see it others are…

I reject reading the bible makes atheists

I hear the beloved atheist saying again and again, "you just have to read the bible to become an atheist" or some version of that saying. If this where true we would already have less Christianity for even though lots of Christians don't read the bible all the way, lots do and justify all manner of illogic, injustice, insanity, violence, rape, slavery and murder. Likewise I don't value this saying much because I think lacks universal truth. I can agree it could help some thinking Christians…

The Bible Should Not be Tossed Aside Lightly.

The bible is not a book that should be tossed aside lightly. It should with the respect deserved be powerfully thrown into the garbage with the greatest intentions. I did this very thing to the expensive onion paged leather bound gold embroidered bible I once so proudly clutched with all my life as a Christian until going to college and seeing the light in 2006. Long live reason and evidence. People can get or keep a bible if they wish. I never will do so or any other holy book. If I want to…

Axiological Atheism and the call of Hope

Axiological atheism spread the call of hope not just hate of Religion.

Axiological atheism should spread the call of hope and self-enlightenment, not just hate of religion and its evil monster myth gods.

A dark room is only scary until you turn on the light. So when we let our dark thoughts out in the light, we may see there is not so much reason to fear…

Axiological Atheists uses axiology a value theory

I am a axiological atheist and axiology is a kind of value theory it can be thought of as a positive leaning ethical way of evaluation and assessing value. Put simply it sees greater or lesser value in everything. It can be thought of as a kind of humanism. In this way it is not nihilistic as some thinking in atheism can at times tend to be. So axiologically humanist atheism is preferable over nihilist atheism. To grasp why this matters one need remember…

The Religious Usurping Of Your Humanity

Nelson Mandela once said,”To deny people their rights is to challenge their very humanity.” Granted, he was referring to the hard to imagine reality of South Africa’s apartheid crisis, but his message can easily be projected onto many cultural crises in the world today.

I have always been keenly aware…

Atheist organizing this week

I just got home from the atheist backyard barbecue which was pretty much like any sort of similar event. You see who is talking about something you would enjoy discussing and you join in. Things were very tough this weekend because my allergies bothered me the whole time up until this afternoon when Lizzy got me some eye drops. She also got me some stuff to replace the meds I had taken. Stuff that just wasn't working

I had planned on going to a few more things this weekend but they…

Godwinks or Hoodwinked?

Have you heard about Godwinks yet?

They are new in the “feel good” style media line up lately. I was introduced to these once a month motivational segments while at work the other morning when one of our clerks went on her break, tuning in to the ever popular wine drinking duo of Kathy Lee and Hoda on the Today show. This…

Spiritual Eugenics Really Are A Thing

My eldest son and I were making the daily commute to school this past week, and we ended up on the discussion of extending human life to hundreds of years. He’d overheard a news article about slowing down the aging process, which got him thinking. Naturally, I’m somewhat against extending human…
