Muslim Extremism and the US Response - Politics through the lens of Naturalism

The internet is once again abuzz over the latest atrocities committed against US citizens and diplomats by thugs intoxicated on a belly full of the religious hate being force-fed to them.  Over in the West the debate, at least the intramural one in the Western world, seems to be centered around what is the proper burden level of blame the country responsible for this video should bear in all this.  Being the country responsible equals being the eminent domain owner of the dirt upon which…

Romney, Ryan and the Devil

Romney and Ryan believing in a god would be nothing remarkable: but is it not the case that both believe in a real, active, in-this-world Devil named Satan ?  Or am I confusing theMormon cult with the Moonie cult?

Most believers in radical Islam also believe not simply in the reality of evil, but the reality of a personality named "Satan" or some equivalent.

Motto: if there is no God, hope eternal that there is no Devil

New Thread: What are “Secular Humanist Politics”?

“..a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them free to otherwise to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned.  This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.”

Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1801

 

There’s no debate about what “religious…

A Mormon President?

The most questionable part of Romney is not his ethics, or whether he created or destroyed jobs.  It's his religion. A President's religion, if's he's a true believer, influences the way he sees the world and makes decisions.  Did Dubya think God told him to invade Iraq?  To what extent does Romney believe all that nutty Mormon stuff? 

Nutty stuff

I was recently fortunate enough to receive a copy of the Book of Mormon, courtesy of the Marriott Residence Inns. …

The Banned Atheist Network (The B.A.N.) going live.

In case you hadn't tried it, DemocraticUnderground.com (DU) is a popular liberal blog, with an occasionally good Religion forum for believers and Nones to try and discuss issues reasonably.

After I was banned from DU, I asked here at A/N, in this discussion, "Are Democrats locking atheists…

It's quite simple in regards to Romney's past. (Hid from Vietnam w/Mormon mission in France!?)

Ah the old smoke and mirrors through faith-fronting-corporate offshore stuff has never been so clear aye?

Romney on Education

Today Romney made the arguement that classroom size does not matter.  I am very interested in the average class size his children have sustained during their education.  I believe this is another attack on education by the republicans to dismantle public school education in America.

How do you feel about today's state of the government and the politics that run it?

I feel disgusted. You probably do too.

I watched this week's episode of Bill Moyers and Company with their guest, Marty Kaplan (found here: http://billmoyers.com/episode/full-show-big-money-big-media-big-trouble/).

In it, Marty Kaplan said; "People say they know it's a con, just as they say that they are not being swayed by the ads for products that they see on television. If…

Disturbing trend in politics

I'll start off by admitting that I don't know how "new" this trend is, hence the reason I did not give it that qualifier in my title; however, it is something that has recently begun to stand out to me.

I've noticed a disturbing trend in politics of restating or informing people that alternate opinions or concerns exist, while at the same time saying and doing absolutely nothing to actually address them.

Example:  Fill out, create or sign any given petition on Whitehouse.gov…

A “True” Story Posted by My Grandfather to Facebook, or What Older Generations Really Think of Young People

A “True” Story Posted by My Grandfather to Facebook, or What Older Generations Really Think of Young People

 

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. 

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's…
