What Is Faith (Aron Ra)

In the final analysis, faith remains the last resort of believers who argue that their god exists and that everyone, us included, needs to believe to earn a place in an undemonstrated heaven or be…Continue

Timothy Freke was flipping through an old academic book when he came across a religious image that some would call obscene. It was a drawing of a third-century amulet depicting a naked man nailed to…Continue

About Me:
I'm a semi-retired 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.

#FakeChristians (Betty Bowers)

Once again, America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers finds it necessary to saddle up and call the soi-disant Christians of the current era on their apparent lack of anything resembling behavior that the carpenter-turned-rabbi would find even remotely satisfactory.  And of course, Betty would know, being that she chats with JC on a daily basis (she said so herself, and she wouldn't lie!).But let's not gild the lily here.  I'll let Mrs. Bowers spell it out for you.

No, I was being a smartass on the quote thing about your hearing crickets in the silence, so I just said I'd lost my hearing as I wasn't hearing any protestations either.

Thanks Loren,

I managed to retire early a few months ago after 30 plus years designing avionics. It's funny but most of my coworkers were theists. Hard for me to understand why, LOL

Loren,

 Why aren't there more senators such ad Daniel Moyanahan who was more of an engineeer/scientist vs a lawyer  politician type?

Alexander Hamilton – On a Man Unprincipled

Posted on February 1, 2020 at 9:20am 5 Comments

When a man unprincipled in private life desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper, possessed of considerable talents, having the advantage of military habits — despotic in his ordinary demeanour — known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty — when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity — to join in the cry of danger to liberty — to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion — to flatter and fall…

The Word Is "Entropy"

Posted on January 22, 2020 at 7:30am 2 Comments

Entropy (n) lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder.



A Never-Ending Battle



Canaries, Coal Mines…



Believing is easy. Knowing is hard.



“Coasting” “The bill doesn’t come due until after we’re dead” … so why care?



“Eternal vigilance…”



I was reflecting the other day on a couple of my more recent blog posts and what they had in common. Looking at issues like climate change, social justice, LGBTQ rights and…

Then What Are You For?!

Posted on December 5, 2019 at 8:15am 8 Comments

...they [the Roman Catholic Church] for example thought that slavery was perfectly fine... absolutely okay, and then they didn't, and what is the point of the Catholic Church if it says, “oh well we couldn't know better because nobody else did”? [To the affirmative team] Then what are you for?!

-- Stephen Fry, answering a question during the 2009 Intelligence Squared debate, “Is the Catholic Church a force for good in the world?”



Of course, slavery was okay to…

What A Long, Strange Trip...

Posted on November 16, 2019 at 8:10am 6 Comments

Sometime in early November, 2009, an atheist friend of mine on the now-defunct Experience Project website directed me over to a relatively new site called Atheist Nexus. There, EVERYONE was an atheist, and you didn’t have to worry about believers crashing the party and constantly trying to convert you. Gee, I thought, I should have a look, and I did, and what I found was a lively, vital community of freethinkers who had no problem with stating their points of view in boldface.…
