"Short answer: I really can't. Slightly longer answer: I'm a known atheist therefore my religious views are federally protected. Since it's known I do NOT in fact worship Thor that would be much more dicey."

I need a good quote...

So people at my office started wearing "Jesus Loves Me" lanyards, (those cloth necklacey badge holder things). I obviously got permission to wear an Atheist one.Unfortunately I can't find one so I have to custom make one.I need a good, short quote BUT here's the kicker. It CAN be pro-atheism but it can not be overtly anti religion general or specific. So far I've got as thoughts:"I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day."and"I'm an atheist for the same reason I'm an…See More

Weapon scopes of soldiers in Iraq emlazoned with religious citations by manufacturer!

Like it says.If you haven't heard about this yet, though I'm sure many of you already have, a US rifle scope manufacturer which provides all the sights and scopes to the soldiers in Iraq, and to the locals we are training, has emblazoned religious citations like 2CR3:11 or what have you next to the serial #'s.Here's the article:READ THE SHORT ARTICLE…See More

Caine replied to Ben's discussion Sam Harris Argues that Moderates Provide Cover for Extremists? in the group Winning Arguments!
"I think you're missing the gist. The stance that moderates provide cover for extremists is not linked to either's views. The argument is that it isn't any groups specific degree or flavor of irrationality that matters, it's that…"

I really don't get the # of people that have the "OMG You're an atheist and you just said God damn it!" or bless you, or etc... I mean are these people so amazingly literal minded themselves? Do THEY really mean "God, please send this tire to your imaginary room of fire and torture because it went flat and that deserves divine intervention for punishment of it's transgression!" when they get a flat and say "God damn tire!"??



Is it that they simply think that to not believe in god you… Continue

Workplace Discrimination- Atheism counts.

Posted on October 2, 2009 at 12:30am 4 Comments

I've talked to people numerous times who've mentioned that they'd like to have something up which is pro-atheism in the office but they "know" that as soon as they do they'll be told to take it down by a theistic boss or complaints will roll in from coworkers, etc.



I know many people on here probably know this already but simply for any who don't... they can't. It's considered religious discrimination. Now an employer CAN say "no religious items" potentially. THIS however I'm not… Continue

Greetings, Caine! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Feb. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

Haha, nope, the other. Which was why I was somewhat confused thinking you knew which I meant when you were arguing it wasn't a paraphrase when you HAD the correct version right there too, lol.

I got my photos crossed and thought you were talking about this one which is not a paraphrase.

No. It's really not. Complete text. Article 11.

It's an excerpt (not paraphrase) of the Treaty of Tripoli, which was indeed ratified by Adams, but was drafted by Washington.

Well, I'm a fairly odd person. That'd be the first reason it makes me peaceful I presume. And secondly is the fact that this world has become so stereotypical and anything dark (for a lack of a better word) is counted as unpatriotic. Hell, I knew a Christian friend who dressed 'punk' just because she liked it and people shunned her.

Oh yeah, I remember that line. It's rather famous. Actually.... our county sign does have bullets through it. Heh.
