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

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.

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

A Debt to the Truth

Posted on June 1, 2020 at 8:00am 0 Comments

When the truth offends, we lie and lie until we can no longer remember it is even there, but it is still there. Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later, that debt is paid.

-- Comrade Valery Legasov, commenting on the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant



Back in January of 2017, I wrote a blog regarding what I called…

Kevin M. Kruse's One Nation Under God - Review

Posted on May 1, 2020 at 9:00am 0 Comments

First let it be said that Kevin Kruse has done a masterful job with One Nation Under God: How Corporate America Invented Christian America, of researching and detailing those events which began and accelerated the process of both bringing Christianity more fully into American life while simultaneously politicizing it toward the Republican side of the ledger. We get reminded of well-known names, such as Billy Graham and Herbert Hoover and even Dwight D. Eisenhower, as well as learning…

Person of Interest – Revisited

Posted on April 1, 2020 at 9:00am 1 Comment

I wrote the following about three weeks ago, just before the "shelter-in-place" order for Ohio came down.  For those of you who are looking for some appropriate binge-watching material, I would like to offer this:

Posted on March 17, 2020 at 7:20am 2 Comments

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine just took the COVID-19 debacle out of bounds last night, announcing that, because of the current “health emergency,” the polls would not be open today and the Ohio primary would be postponed until June 2nd. His action was allegedly in response to a lawsuit from two elderly Franklin County voters who feared exposure to Coronavirus in the public voting place.



This action was immediately challenged. Per reporting in today’s (March 17, 2020) Plain…
