Same Way Too BILL HATHAWAY and KID BONNEY 1999

Circa 1998 or 1999. Bill Hathaway, Shawn Ruch, Chris Ruane and Andy Hoke. The Crazy Horse Café, in Washington County, PA, I think.

Andrew Bradford Hoke replied to Morgan West's discussion Preparing to Come Out
"Hi Morgan, It can be hard coming out to devoted Christian relatives. How do you tell them you're an atheist without simultaneously disparaging them and their fellow churchgoers? That's the rub. My parents are in their 70s now, so I…"

Andrew Bradford Hoke commented on Joan Denoo's blog post Free will is an illusion
"Free will has something to do with control. Do we have it or not? I like to think that we are not automatons who act in the only way that we can. I think this question is very much tied to fate and what will be. I adore the unpredictability of life,…"

Tom Sarbeck commented on Andrew Bradford Hoke's blog post Recovering from Religion
"A true story from the late 1950s. A chain of paint stores where I lived then advertised a sale: Buy one gallon of our best paint for $9.99 and get a second gallon for one cent. A man I worked with bragged about getting a gallon of quality paint for…"

Andrew Bradford Hoke commented on Andrew Bradford Hoke's blog post Recovering from Religion
"Michael, "Do they want religion in the classroom? Only if it's coming from "the one true religion."" Precisely. Fully rejecting the absurdities seems like a good first step. Reject nonsense.   "

Recovering from Religion

Posted on August 10, 2014 at 12:36pm 18 Comments

I recently signed up to volunteer for 'Recovering from Religion.' http://recoveringfromreligion.org/

I had to furnish contact information for two individuals.

My perspective is that religion causes people to suffer in a variety of ways, and I'm trying to reduce that suffering.

Asymetrical Warfare and Iraq

Posted on August 9, 2014 at 9:32am 17 Comments

I think that some global understanding needs to be established or affirmed regarding asymmetrical warfare. Something useful may not be possible, but I thought it was at least worth discussion.

How does a recognized government face an enemy with no specified geographic boundary, no diplomatic capacity or public leader?

It is very easy to point to formal positions regarding 'unlawful combatants,' but I can't help but think that our current understandings are not really doing the…

Sunday Assembly

Posted on August 4, 2014 at 5:40pm 32 Comments

I imagine that most on this site have already heard about, and already have opinions relating to Sunday Assembly.

I'm helping to launch Sunday Assembly in Pittsburgh, PA (USA). For my part, I'm really enjoying it.

It's one thing for atheists to gather and 1) agree that religion is BS, 2) enjoy meeting like-minded people and 3) recover from religious indoctrination. What I like is the regular sense of community that we are…

Vow of Poverty

Posted on August 3, 2014 at 10:13am 2 Comments

This article is about the lavish homes of American Arch-Bishops:

http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2014/08/us/american-archbishops-lavish-homes/

Not very consistent with the whole 'vow of poverty' thing.

Also, I'll bet few on this website are surprised :)
