The Military Secular Atheist Agnostic Freethinker Prayer

Something was brought to my attention a bit ago. Some Republican politician is trying to get a "Christian" prayer thing passed that says anything with a payer in the military has to be "Christian" or something along those lines...

Yet again another Goodie Two Shoes is trying to jack with the military because they think they can.

So, I have offered up my own prayer.....

I call it:

I live in Texas.

I’ve always been an atheist.

All my life I’ve had to put up with these bible pounding clowns who think their “Manure” does not stink.

Well it does.

I’ve seen these clown just ruin a college.

At first there were no preachers on the Board of Regents.

Then one day there was one.

Then two.

The next thing you knew all the Regents were preachers.

That lead to the demise of the college.

It lost it’s… Continue

Equal and more equal

As I mentioned, Hungary held elections in April. While we are still wating for the new government to take over, the parliament is already up and working, and the Society for Freedom Rights is doing their work: as they pointed out, the preambulum of one of last week's bills goes as follows: "We, the members of the parliament of the Republic of Hungary, those who believe that God is the ruler of history and those who endeavour to understand history from other sources..." ("Mi, a Magyar… Continue

Teabagger threatens to kidnap me. Or maybe word-salad me to death?

As most are aware, Arizona recently passed a demand-to-see-your-papers law: Anyone who 'looks' like they could be an illegal immigrant can be stopped on that suspicion alone and must provide proof of citizenship or legal residency. If you don't have such proof on you, even if you are a legal resident, you can be jailed up to 6 months just for not having the proper paperwork on your person.

One would think that the freedom-loving, privacy-loving, constitution-is-sacred,…

"Testy" Negro Gets Uppity at HC Summit

(Originally posted on Left Agenda)

Can you imagine the idea of a BLACK MAN actually trying to tell these WHITE Senators how to do their jobs?

OK, maybe it's not so difficult for you, but it seems outrageous to Cons, Faux News, and the GOP. While GOP appeals of "…

The Irish-English Conflict: Another reason why the U.S. needs a Separation of Church and State.

Another look at recent history around the world where religion and politics collided is proof the US should do more to promote the Separation of Church and State. This time I examine the Irish-English conflict.

1984? No, 2010! Welcome to "The Nanny State" - From Atheist Climber Blog

I always stumble when I attempt to talk about things of a political nature. Politics are very complicated, and I think it's difficult to see all sides of a situation, even for those who are experts in political issues. Because of this I try not to touch on real-world politics too much, as I fear being proven wrong, and I sometimes worry I'm misunderstanding situations because I've not seen the whole picture. Even when I do understand the whole story, I can feel that I have nothing new to offer… Continue

My Response to ""Nation must return to its spiritual roots"

My response to the this letter to the Editor:

This letter is in response to "Nation must return to its spiritual roots" which was published on 12/1/09.

I guess it is best to start my response from the beginning... with this quote from the author:

"Our spiritual foundations are being shaken to their… Continue

Glenn Beck: Demolish the Separation of Church and State

He is actually suggesting the wall of separation of church and state should be demolished...(yes.. i know there is no actual reference to such.. but it IS implied)... He says "its not what we were founded on"

Oh really? REALLY? The same founders he says actually wanted this to be a religious nation.. are the same ones that drafted the Constitution which said:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of… Continue

A Current Similarity

I have picked up on a correlation (similarities if you will allow) between the Republican mentality with regards to this political environment and religion in the darkest of ages, pre-Renaissance. I think the similarity is striking and disturbing, in that the motivation and victims are very similar. The least educated among us are being used against themselves in an attempt to further the agendas of the rich and powerful. Like John Stuart Mill said, "Religion is Politics"- more to the point… Continue

How the History of Credit Cards Matters to the Future of Health Care

The New Atheist, or The New Democrat?

I’ve received some criticism regarding my recent concentration on politics and my neglect of religious, atheism, and science news. If you would indulge me, I would like take a moment to address these concerns.

Open letter to the White House

Park Ranger in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, recently injured in an MVA and without health insurance, requests audience with a top dog.

Ok, me and 300 million other Americans. But with President Obama and friends being so much more people-friendly than those of the past, with him doing a tour of national parks and with health care being such the hot topic right now, I suppose I had to try, right?

Long story short: I am horribly poor, quasi-homeless and have been in… Continue

Palin's Farewell Speech: My Father Smelled of Eldeberries

Sarah Palin's leaving Alaska for a "higher calling". Here for your snarking pleasure, I give you her farewell speech - with commentary.

What an absolutely beautiful day it is, and it is my honor to speak to all Alaskans, to our Alaskan family this last time as your governor.
The honor part was cool, but actually being your Governor? That part sucked.
And it is always great to be in Fairbanks.
Check. Fairbanks = always… Continue

Partisan Stupidity

From Here is what I wrote though:

Have you ever had the pleasure to observe someone incredibly competent, thoughtful, skillful, and a leader in their field perform a job (such as brain surgery)? And then some fucking retard who hasn't the foggiest clue how to do this job criticizes ("What I'd do is cut right through that there Medulla Oblangata...")? Watching the way the Republicans are criticizing President Obama over his reaction to the Iranian Election… Continue

Wonderful Secular Statement of Purpose

Socrates via Durant:

From The Story of Philosophy, Chapter 1, Section II (Socrates):

If one could build a system of morality absolutely independent of religious doctrine, as valid for the atheist as for the pietist, then theologies might come and go without loosening the moral cement that makes of wilful individuals the peaceful citizens of a community.

Gingrich Imagines Pagans

Looks like the religious right is making a last ditch attempt to regroup, this time with newly converted catholic, permanent assface Newt Gingrich equating anything that isn't christian with paganism
