Started this discussion. Last reply by Loren Miller Jun 10. 3 Replies

Oh, dear ... CoolHardLogic has found another one!  We now have "B S Detector," a flat-earther holding forth on why he's right and everyone else is wrong.  This particular scientific "genius" seems to…Continue

The flying mouse feces spreaders are BACK ... and CoolHardLogic has GOT 'em!  This time he's got some wingnut named Jeranism, who seems to think that there are no spheroidal objects in outer space,…Continue

David Silverman – Fighting God & Firebrand Atheism

Started this discussion. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 7. 58 Replies

I love David Silverman. Why? Because he has the brass cojones to call a spade a spade, he doesn't soften his approach and he doesn't back down.  Recently, in Zurich, Switzerland, David gave a talk on…Continue

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.

Thanks for the welcome, Loren!

I´ve already found many awesome vids and topics in this group, so I will definitely have a great time here! Cheers, Eli

Hi Loren! Yes I love podcasts! They were a big help after my divorce the comedy ones helped me laugh again. The variety and content of podcasts is better than anything on cable. I do love the Thinking Atheist podcast, it's well produced and that voice is amazing, I could listen to him for hours!

I was just soliciting advice, Loren.

That might be related. Later I had to stop my flash plugin because it gave me problems.

BTW, I put my psychological reaction to climate news in the Psychology group. It' really for psychological discussion, isn't it. I wasn't sure where to put it, as I already overload Ecological and Climate Concerns. Have you a better suggested location to post such things in future?

Thought you might want to know. I selected the Noam Chomsky group after searching for it in my groups, and my computer froze up. The message telling me what was loading said something about read Twitter.com. Had to do a hard reboot. Couldn't find anything like that in my task manager.

I'm not so sure that A/N is going to stay up either. One thing that I have noticed for some time now is that A/N will no longer allow tags to be added  to discussions that are posted. That makes me suspect that it has been over burdened. Someone needs to connect with the originator of it and tell him or her about the problem. I think Dr. Meaden would be a very logical choice to do this. He likes Joan Danoo so maybe she should be the one to connect with him.

Tuesday morning I got up, actually happy that the day had finally come. I could cast my vote for Hillary and Ted Strickland and Marcia Fudge, and while I knew that Ted had no chance against Rob Portman, the other two would come through for me. My wife and I rode the short distance to the polling place on Columbus Road, showed our IDs and got our ballots, marked them and slipped them into the reader / scanner when we were done. We had well and faithfully done our bit for our country and its…

Atheism and Social Justice

Posted on October 3, 2016 at 8:45am 1 Comment

There seems to have been a lot of jabber in parts of the atheist community these days about SJWs, also known as Social Justice Warriors, and the supposedly negative impact these people have had on the atheist movement. Argument about this business has gone up and down the internet, from YouTube to Patheos.com and back. The two sides of this foofaraw seem to be split mostly around feminism’s seeming inclusion into the warp and woof of some atheist discussions and issues deriving from that…

AronRa and Words – “The Details are Everything”

Posted on August 1, 2016 at 7:00am 2 Comments

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less." "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things." "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master—that's all."

-- Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass



In my experience, if you can't say what you mean, you can never mean what you say. The details are everything.…
