Are You Confused about Julian Assange

Started this discussion. Last reply by Chris Dec 1. 37 Replies

I used to admire Julian Assange for revealing secrets of government corruption. No longer -- though I'm still a big fan of transparency and whistleblowing. Participating in Russian election meddling…Continue

Sneaky Medicare Cut

The tax bill passed by the House and up for Senate vote soon (while people are distracted by Xian holidays) won't just give billionaires a huge tax cut, it will strike at Medicare. Next year Medicare…Continue

Living through Fascist takeover

Thom Hartmann's The Uncanny, Frightening Ways That Trump's America Mirrors Hitler's Germany, is among the most well written descriptions of today's US politics. Milton Mayer had interviewed ordinary Germans who lived through Hitler's rise and WWII. We have much to learn from their experience.One, a college professor, told him:“What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people,…See More

Secular Humanism in a destabilizing society

President of the Center for Inquiry Robyn E. Blumner sent a letter mentioning "the multi-pronged assault on reason and science we are all experiencing", and asking "Where you think we're going as a movement?"You might want to respond to my answer. You might want to share your answer to this question.Where is Secular Humanism going as a movement?As individuals and as an entire species, we shimmer on the cusp of either self-annilation or rebirth as a more self-aware and empathic form. Secular…See More

Tooth-Level Micromanagement

Posted on September 19, 2017 at 4:30pm 2 Comments

You know how some religions try to micromanage your life - like press your head to the ground 45 times a day and eat this not that. You thought a secular lifestyle would liberate you?

Today I had to replace my electric toothbrush. The only models available with circular action are designed for corporate micromanagement of my brushing technique. There are none without such "features".

A helpful on-handle timer stutters every 30 seconds to let you know when it’s time…

The Past 5 GOP Presidents Have Used Fraud and Treason to Steer Themselves to Electoral Victory

Ford and Bush Sr. aren't directly accused here, just the benefactors of systemic corruption. Bush Jr.'s illegitimate  elevation is already widely known. The Nixon and Reagan treasonous deals with enemies surprised me.

History suggests – even if treason can be demonstrated –…


Poo Fools (us all)

Day after day I see Atheist Nexus members argue scripture details, spreading theistic memes here, without realizing their self-betrayal. Memetics still seems, to most, an abstract intellectual debate. We can't grasp religion as an infective agent. We can't see ourselves as merely copying machines for viruses.…

Thank you Randall and Ruth. Happy to be here. Missed my first meeting last Sunday evening but hope to make it next. Are you'll coming in September?
How do I look for famous visiting guest speakers when they come to Toronto.
Regards to you both.

It's part of Jeff Session's renewal of the failed War on Drugs and DARE program. Anybody that is accused or arrested of a drug related violation can have their assets confiscated. It is a huge civil rights violation since it doesn't require a conviction. Some police departments have been accused of using it for profit and Trump is a big fan of it. It's all over the news today. Some states have banned it without a conviction. A persons car or house can be taken all without a conviction.
