Support the Right To Not Pray! Sign the petition!

Sign the petition below and show your support for John Kieffer, Florida Atheist.  He's been arrested and is facing more than 1 year in prison for not participating in a prayer said at the beginning of a public school board meeting.  He, instead, took pictures.  His trial will be at the end of April this year.  Show your support and sign the petition!

"The Right God"

   This actually happened about a month ago, but I never received any replies through Blogger so I'll try here.

   I was helping a friend move some furniture in her house today and we managed to get on the subject of the World Trade Center and 9/11 and about how I was trying to talk to my young daughter about it.  She's 8 years old.  I explained to my friend that I'd told my daughter that some people took over some planes filled…

Separation Isn't Always A Good Thing

   We have lots of evidence that about 230,000 years ago, colonies of Neandertals began to settle on the continent of Europe.  They were alone there, from what we know, until about 30,000 years ago at which time our own ancestors began to colonize Europe as well.  It has been a pretty widely accepted theory that Homo Sapiens came in and outwitted the Neandertals and managed to wipe them out by out-surviving them.  More recent evidence and evidence analysis has shown that theory is likely to…

The Poetry of My Reality

In On the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin said: “There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."  That, to me, is such an apt view of what reality is. Lots of people feel it is a…

How I became an Atheist - The Fear of Coming Out

    I was born in 1976 to a family who were members of the WGC or Worldwide Church of God, now known as Grace Communion International.  When I say my "family", I mean my entire family.  Grandparents on both my mom's and dad's side of the family on down through the generations went to this church even in different states.  I linked to the Wikipedia page so that you can read about…

Female Atheism

Before I start here, let me say that I know this sounds a bit insensitive to the LGBTQ community, but it is not intended as such.  I am in no way attempting to diminish the contributions to our species by homosexuals in our branch of the Tree of Life, but for simplicity's sake, I'm sticking with the very basic, primitive idea of a family unit here.  Please forgive me if it offends...

  It is statistically proven that there are far fewer female atheists…

Atheist Morality

NOTE: Before you start reading this, please be aware that this was my first blog post as an Atheist and I had only JUST begun to delve into the world on the internet.  The most common question I ran into was the one of Atheist morality.  I also had not yet heard about The Selfish Gene or knew anything about what it contained.  I've watched probably hundreds of hours of natural history programs, mostly presented or produced by Sir David Attenborough.  Dr. Alice Roberts quickly became a…

That's right! I'm a whimp!

   I've been struggling, for several weeks now, with coming out publicly.  Today, I did...kinda.  I posted a picture someone made with a picture of Adam Savage with the last bit of his RR speech this weekend and changed my profile picture to one of our noodly creator.  I didn't come out and say it 'cause I'm a total wuss like that (#disappointment).  I think I'm trying to test the waters because that's not the forum where I want to debate the existence of god.  I've had social network…
