"It's sad that so many people have no regard for life, other than their own. That said, these guys have given me far more than I could ever give them. They are terribly spoiled, though I drew the line at getting them each their own dog to…"

Vegetarian/Vegan Atheists

This once-active group is now unmoderated, and discussions / interest have declined to almost nothing. The original group founder is long gone.Active moderation is needed, therefore comments and membership are now closed.For re-birth of a vegetarian atheist group, if you are willing to moderate the group, I invite you to submit a new group.  There have been some great discussions and I am grateful to have been involved.  I am vegetarian and atheist, among other things, and would love to be in…See More

Atheist quotes

"If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be able to disprove my assertion provided I were careful to add that the teapot is too small to be revealed even by our most powerful telescopes. But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion cannot be disproved, it is an intolerable presumption on the part of human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking nonsense. If, however, the existence of such a teapot were affirmed in ancient books, taught as the sacred truth every Sunday, and instilled into the minds of children at school, hesitation to believe in its existence would become a mark of eccentricity and entitle the doubter to the attentions of the psychiatrist in an enlightened age or of the Inquisitor in an earlier time. "
— Bertrand Russel

Life and Death in a Christian Family

Posted on February 2, 2010 at 4:47pm 1 Comment

My brother-in-law died recently. It was unexpected, tragic and sad. He was 51 and just dropped dead of a heart attack after feeling ill all day. His family and friends were shocked and devastated. The whole experience for me has been very disquieting. The difference between how a religious person views the world as compared to how an atheist does is never so apparent as it is when life ends. But then it would be wouldn't it?? The end is really the whole enchilada, the defining moment for the… Continue
