1. Fathers and Sons
Over the past few days we've really gotten to know each other better. He's been tested and currently places on the mild end of the ASD scale (I'm likely right there with him) - thanks non-existent God. So the little guy doesn't take too well to…Continue

This is the follow-up post to Bwambale Robert and The Kasese Humanist Primary School in Uganda. It is also the third in a series of personal profiles of Atheists, Agnostics and Humanists who are helping to make the world a better place.
I am focusing on people who are making a difference for others. They are examples of Humanism in Action.
Daniel was nice enough…Continue

I just finished reading the personal diaries of Eve and Adam - you know, the original humans. It would appear that Mark Twain discovered the original manuscripts and succeeded to translate the ancient hieroglyphs somehow (perhaps he used a top hat) and published them to the world. I will be the first to say that we are truly indebted to him. I…Continue

This is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn't throw a brick without breaking a church window. Yet I was told that you were going to build one more. I said the scheme is good, but where are you going to find room? They said, we will build it on top of another church and use an elevator. This…Continue

My wife and I both work and we have a two year old kid. This takes up a lot of my time so lots can happen in this world of ours without my noticing it. Like natural disasters, revolutions, whole continents disappearing into the sea and Bill 13, which is making its way through the legislature in Ontario.
Here's the way I understand it. Kids have been killing…Continue
It's been hard times for the Catholic church here in Quebec since the Quiet Revolution back in the 1960s. So much so that the church has really stepped up the marketing angle in the last decade to try and woo people back into church - or at least woo the money out of them.
The image to the left is their latest for 2012. It's pretty genius if you think about it…Continue
I need your help and advice.
Awhile ago I heard about Seth Andrews' $30,000 Atheist Charity Drive. Before that I had heard about the Foundation Beyond Belief and other pre-existing secular charities.
While thinking about this, an idea entered my mind. Why not reach out to actual Christian and Mormon missionaries and Atheist/Agnostic Charity…Continue

Unlike the character I covered in the last instalment of this series,Homer's Thersites, Lucian was a real person who starred in his own satirical works, written in Greek for an upper-class Roman audience back in the second-century common…Continue

After 34 years, Bishop Benjamin Arreak and a team of Canadian Bible Society translators, including Bishop Andrew Atagotaaluk, have completed the project of a lifetime: translating the Old Testament to make a complete Bible in Inuktitut.
Well I for one applaud this.…Continue

As an outlet for the repressed literature student in me, I'm starting up this new series that focuses on characters in ancient Western literature who show some sign of skepticism or freethinking. By extension I'll also show the quacks, charlatans or authorities they dare to annoy with their tiresome voices of dissent, critiques and prodding for explanations, proofs, or…Continue

Nevermind crazy pseudo-theocratic North Korean regimes that wish to invade them using incursion tunnels. Nevermind that this extremely isolationist rogue state has nukes and rocketry advanced enough to deliver certain nuclear incineration death anywhere in their country.
Some South Korean Christians know that the real threat to their very civilization wears a…Continue

M*A*S*H: The Communist Leftist Threat to American Democracy
One evening, I cannot remember how, I was sitting upstairs and the conversation went to television. Then somehow I ended up telling my dad that I thought M*A*S*H was a good show. It was an…Continue
