Higher Power

Posted on November 7, 2009 at 1:29pm 2 Comments

After nearly four years in AA, I finally devised a concept of "higher power" that doesn't involve a deity, the group, the "fellowship", nature, the cosmos, the laws of physics, or any other person.



As a committed atheist since the age of 4, I have always known that things were "up to me", and that I could not/would not get help from some power that was "higher" or "greater" than myself.



So one day, in a meeting, while someone was discussing his higher power, I suddenly… Continue

A Good Quote

Posted on October 30, 2009 at 6:41pm 0 Comments

Occasionally I run across something that is poignant or simply well put. I especially like quotes that speak to the essence of what it is to be "human". I just ran across this, and to make certain it belonged to the author who originally posted it, I ran an entire sentence of it through the Google search.

I was… Continue

The Metaphysical Naturalist

Posted on November 7, 2008 at 6:00am 1 Comment

After my first posting the day I joined Nexus, someone asked, "What is a metaphysical naturalist?" He could as easily have asked, "What is a naturalist?"

There are many kinds of naturalists, which for almost 3000 years has meant that whether or not a god exists, everything in the world is natural and operates on natural laws.

But actual, true atheism was almost unheard of in ancient Greece. Atheism was the mere denial that the many thousands of gods that were believed to exist had… Continue

Introducing Me; Glad to be Aboard--I Hope

A Threaded Conversation with the Deity of Atheism, Austin Cline This was the title of one of my blogs. I am not a freshman at blogging--I am a sophmore given I'm only in my fourth month. But first, I didn't know this site existed until I just accidentally discovered it. So I never published anything…
