About Me:
I'm a semi-retired / involuntarily unemployed electrical engineer who has a rather eclectic background, never mind a few miles on the odometer. I suppose I was an "apatheist" for quite a while - largely indifferent to the whole issue of gods - but after 9/11 and the more blatant appearance of evangelicals and Dominionists on the scene, my atheism has finally come to the fore.

Other interests include high-end stereo and home theater (and with that, CD and DVD collecting), BMWs and general car enthusiasm, single-malt whisky and biking.

I flatter myself that I know my way around Atheist Nexus at least reasonably well (I've been here since November of 2009), so if you need a hand with something, please don't hesitate to give a shout.

Anyone who wants to allege that religion doesn't harm anything has a poor apprehension for what is going on in the world ... at BEST.

Thanks for the video link. He plays a lot better than I do, but I could say that about almost anyone.

A winter poem for you Loren:

Winter is the king of showmen,
Turning tree stumps into snowmen
And houses into birthday cakes
And spreading sugar over lakes.
Smooth and clean and frosty white,
The world looks good enough to bite.
That’s the season to be young,
Catching snowflakes on your tongue.
Snow is snowy when it’s snowing,
I’m sorry it’s slushy when it’s going.
~Ogden Nash

Thanks, that's Ella. That photo is my laptop wallpaper. Btw, I bought VIP tickets to the PA atheist conference in September. VIP tics entitle one to extra hang-out time with the speakers. This year that includes Seth, Matt Dilahunty,and Aron Ra. I am very excited!

Thanks Loren, for the lead to The Midterm Elections Will Drastically Affect Humanists. I tried to get a link to the author and have a little chat. Then I decided I would do my thinking in public so others can smash my reasoning and tell me where I am all goofed up. But I don't have time to think it through right now. 

Basically, it is that Democrats have a tough time organizing ... the old herding cats syndrome ... and I see it as an organizational problem to be worked out through strategy. He hits the nail on the head. Now what?

Well, yours truly has been at it again, throwing hand grenades in the form of bits and bytes or pieces of paper with words arranged in particular sequence on them.  This time, in the light of the recent events in Paris, France and the US response to that, my intended recipient is this country's chief executive:

Sam Harris – An Atheist Manifesto

Posted on November 9, 2015 at 9:00am 8 Comments

I am, as many of you already know, a habitual quote-monger, as evinced by multiple posts and comments here on Atheist Nexus. Over the six or so years of my avowed atheism, I have amassed a fair collection of brief statements and longer works by significant freethinkers who share in the cause of secularism and opposition to irrational belief. One of the more recent of these is a piece by Sam Harris, entitled simply, An Atheist Manifesto.

This treatise, a touch over 4,600…


Spotlight – A Cinematic Indictment of the Catholic Church

Posted on November 8, 2015 at 10:00am 11 Comments

Once again, I have to thank Sunday morning television for informing me of an important and noteworthy event. In this case, the information came in the form of a 30-second commercial, not just about a film but yet another salvo against the catholic church and the pedophile priest scandal: Spotlight. This docudrama purports to tell the story of how the Boston Globe newspaper staff researched and revealed the massive child abuse…


The Red Herring of Spirituality

Posted on October 20, 2015 at 9:00am 52 Comments

How many times have we heard it? “I’m not religious, but I am spiritual.” To this day, while the intent if not the meaning of that phrase is at least vaguely understood, there should be another way to express it. I suspect that a goodly number of the people on this planet have experiences which class under that heading, and such experiences are as natural as breathing. The problem in essence is the heading itself.

The problem is compounded by a vocabulary which treats such…
