As I move towards retirement, I no longer have to worry about losing my job through religious discrimination. It is now pay back time. Good to see other 'out' and strong atheists here who post at Democratic Underground. I have done a lot of writing at Bartcop as well as DU and had several pieces circulated through Buzzflash.

I know it seems that all I'm doing is plugging my book on Nexus, and now here on Strong, and I guess that is true, but I hope everyone will believe this; it is not to make money.

Everything that surrounds the bullshit of believing in a Creator of the Universe or any religion is harmful, even those areas where one might speculate are good, such as doing for others. But I dispute any of that because it continues to cause human beings to live in a fantasy land and to continue selling it to the young.

My book, The Parallel Progression, is about an election for president in the future. It is available on Amazon.com or at createspace.com/3343114. And I have to tell you how it ends. It is a political/social/thriller that ends with the election of an atheist as the new president, and attacks the religion bs very strongly in his inaugural address. I hope many of you will get a copy and read it, and then either pass it on to those you know who do not believe as you do, or tell them the title and where they can get a copy.

there was an article calling the recent plane crash "A Miracle".

I read a headline about that plane crash (or landing on water if you prefer) that roughly read "Hero pilot praised for miracle landing". Which one is it? If it was a miracle then he didn't need to do anything.

You could start a whole new thread on this. Essentially it is pure confirmation bias. The religious use it all the time. God has got away with this many times. The experience and skill of a pilot and his crew (and let's not forget the many other factors) get a plane down on water with no deaths and God is praised. Ask them where God was during the holocaust and they'll tell that mankind has free-will.

I think I'll fit right in. I often post on other blogs (Huffington Post and Democratic Underground) and whenever someone brings up god or Jesus, I call them on it. And I'm not the only one. Just recently on HP, there was an article calling the recent plane crash "A Miracle". I was completely shocked and happy to see the amount of people who were "intolerant" of those who claimed their god had a hand in the safe landing and everyone surviving. We are out there! And our voices are getting louder!

I also write letters to the editor of my newspaper when ever someone writes an opinion and includes god or Jesus in it. Further, I belong to The Freedom From Religion Foundation and The Secular Coalition of America. Last but not least, I am constantly writing to Pres. Obama on his Change.gov website regarding Separation of Church and State. I want Faith Based Initiatives ended along with the non-exempt tax clause for Churches. I'm also tired of being told that we have to be sensitive to people of "faith". I believe all unbelievers need to be more vocal and come out of the closet, so to speak. The secular population in the U.S. needs to get organized and become a force to reckon with. Otherwise, our great country will end up a Christian theocracy. Where will that leave us?

I know what you mean about the pictures. My Douglas Adams fan group picture doesn't quite capture the whole "Don't Panic" saying. :)
