Sunday Sept. 26, Ireland, the powder keg

I will be speaking at the Community of Reason this weekend on "Ireland the Powder Keg." Reflecting on my recent trip to Ireland and what I
learned about the secular community, Atheist Ireland, Michael Nugent (leader of AI) and the Catholic Paedophile Church.

Religion as a Sexually Transmitted Disease

My Topeka presentation went perfectly. I was quite surprised at how the group took to the subject - well sex always sells I guess. Check out

this blog on RDF today. It captures some of what I say in my talk. I

think this woman has been cribbing my notes!…

Topeka speech

Speaking Sunday evening in Topeka, Kansas on the subject, Religion as a

Equal Opportunity Burning

Some random thoughts. Would it be too much to encourage the Muslim world

to burn a few bibles just to even the score over the Quran burning in

Florida? It might help settle this whole thing down. Maybe in the

spirit of Jonathan Swifts' "A Modest Proposal," a mass Bible and Quran

burning next to the Washington Monument, might bring us all together.

On second thought, if every Bible and Quran in the world were burned

this week, it would probably totally tip the… Continue

Sex at Dawn

influence, even make a contribution to the culture. I think Sex at Dawn

that there are serious alternative explanations to the standard sexual

myths of our… Continue

Wall Street Journal, Chaplain and Atheist

The Wall Street Journal ran an interesting article on "A Chaplain and an Atheist Go To War". Interesting to read how the Chaplain feels free to

put himself and others at risk because he believes his god will protect

him from Taliban bullets. Love the quote, "He trusts God to keep him

safe," says RP2 Chute. "And I'm here just in case that doesn't work out."…

Book Review

Bill Hamby just published at great book review in Secular News Daily. Take a look. http://www.secularnewsdaily.com/2010/09/01/review-the-god-virus/

I don't know Bill, but he has a easy writing style. I am very glad he mentions our group Recovering from Religion. Hopefully, it will lead to interest in starting new groups.

Major Turning Point!

Well that may be a little exaggeration but this week something happened that certainly adds (or ads) a new dimension to our secular battles. For the first time, a commercial enterprise is using a blasphemous theme in its marketing efforts. More importantly the marketing is targeted directly at those who are most susceptible to infection - children and adolescents! Take a look at this link:…
