I accept that religion is all around me. Although I hope that will eventually change I doubt it will be in my life time. Most of my friends and relatives are to some extent religious people. (My dear liberal (but religious) sister prays for me.)
I know very few people who are vocally anti-theist.
I don't need to be an evangelical atheist either. My wife is a believer - she goes to church - we each accept - or maybe tolerate - the views of the other - mostly by… Continue

It seems with Easter, and the improvement of weather from freezing to tolerable, that there is an uptick in religious pursuits. As if after getting through the last rather heavy Christmas and Easter seasons, the rekindling of faith hits a critical mass and a bunch of stupid just starts flowing out of… Continue

In school I learned that I have been working towards a state of self-actualization, progressing from the sum of my parents' hopes and dreams to being who I want to be. Part of this process involved changing my name several times as I became the person I was intended to become.
I also evolved politically, sexually and other ways. One of these transformations was extremely controversial though not always evident to… Continue

I remember reading a novel about a woman who traveled through space and time only to learn at the end of the book that she was a mental patient. I remember thinking, well that sucks, she was a really interesting person.
The stories that my peers tell me at work have touches of humor, even though I'm not really an Al-Qaeda operative the way they think I am. I often respond with a story out of right center field. When they ask… Continue

Science and reason are two things that keep on giving every day. They were able to inspire us to live and prosper in this world. Without them we would be unable to cure and eradicate diseases, increase the standard of living, and explore the unexplored terrain. In this new century these are the two most crucial elements that will help us survive by helping us connect with our Earth and stop global warming from destroying our species.

That's the only way to describe him. He put me back together, just like fixing a broken doll. I honestly don't know what I would do without him. I had nearly lost my faith in all of humanity til I met him. We have been together seven years now. He came to me at a time when I thought all men were garbage, and showed me that there are good ones out there, and you CAN have a good relationship with somebody. He has treated my boys like they were his own. We have had our arguments, but they never… Continue

So, I've been on Atheist Nexus for a little while now. So far I find the place to be fun, inspiring, and quite friendly. It's been a great experience. While I'd love to donate tons of mad cash, I don't have it. But I read my new friend Hessenroots
' most recent blog post about donating, and thought, hey, what a great idea!
Hess just started a CafePress shop
to sell all… Continue

Early-ish this morning fellow AN member 'IsThatLatin' posted a blog in regard to the sites fund-raising efforts.
I thought about it, agreed, commented and moved on. For some reason it was stuck in my head for a better part of the day and it got me thinking a bit more.
Without going into a winded diatribe on the matter here's the deal:
I've come up with a number of new… Continue

The catholic asshats are out in force at Pharyngula - they are posting massive comments 40K+ words of pope drivel in an attempt to crash the Science Blogs servers. It's time for a little activism folks - these are deliberate attacks on the SB servers. Support Professor Myers and the First Amendment.
