"The New Oxford American Dictionary suggests comparing "sacred" and "secular". NOAD defines "secular" as having no religious or spiritual basis, so it warrants criticism as "atheist" does (because it implies…"

""Set apart" is right on the money, as in not subject to scrutiny or critical analysis.  More like "leave your brain at the door, because if you use your brain, you'll see right through the snake oil we're trying to sell…"

Update

A lot has changed since I was here last at Atheistnexus.org. I finally moved out of the Bible Belt. There were a few atheists in central Illinois, but we were up against religious institutions so deeply entrenched in state and local government that putting forward progressive rational public policy is met with vicious, irrational hatred and bigotry. The state would rather have unquestioning loyal sheep that vote on name recognition alone than to have people who question authority and demand…See More

Reading Amazon.com book reviews of The God Virus

I still haven't read Dawkins. I'm getting most my information from posts, comments, my personal experiences, and my Communication education. Most of the ideas I come up with fall in line with Hitchens, Harris, Dawkins and others, but I certainly don't mean to plagiarize anyone's work, and I would hate to put a huge effort into a book only to discover that I re-invented the wheel.

 

I guess I'll just have to start forking over the cash for a whole library of atheist…

Public Education in the United States of America

Posted on January 11, 2011 at 6:17am 0 Comments

It's a crazy conspiracy theory that education is deliberately stifled in the U.S. right? Wrong. First and foremost, I was never taught critical thinking skills in District 186 in Springfield, Illinois. I was never even taught that there was such a think as "critical thinking" until I went to college.



So, what purpose is served by deliberately limiting or suppressing knowlege?

Muqtada al-Sadr

Posted on January 7, 2011 at 9:19pm 0 Comments

As U.S. Troops were reportedly nearing the city's outskirts, Muqtada al-Sadr was preparing several squads for guardianship of the ancient relics of Iraqi history. He sent troops to guard the museum that contained some of the earliest relics or human activity on the face of the planet. He was there to prevent looting. U.S. troops were totally indifferent to the building and its contents. Was it worth it to piss him off? He wasn't there to defend Saddam. He was perceived as a threat and…

Gender Judgement question

Posted on July 5, 2010 at 10:00am 8 Comments

You might think this is a stupid question, and I would like answers for real so please leave comments:

If you knew that you would never be judged against your gender, never be criticized for not being "manly" or "womanly" what do you imagine your life might be like?

Checked out your blog and your website, have you ever thought about publicly debating theists? If not, or even if you have, I'm trying to get a group together here in Springfield to do just that, confront the delusion that is religion. I'm thinking about calling the group "The Logic Squad", but your name and website gave me an idea for a different one if you're in agreement to at least allowing me to use it, the "Atheist Insurgency Debate Squad". The initials aren't coincidence either, I'd like to spread rationality and reason like AIDS.

Hey, thanks for the group invite you sent a while back. I didn't mean to just ignore you. I think I'll pass on that for right now. I'm already in 27 groups, and I can't keep up now as it is. Good luck.
