Logicon and Reasonfest

Folks in the Midwest, I you are near Arkansas or Kansas, two excellent conferences are coming this month.  Logicon at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville and Reasonfest at the University of Kansas.

I'll be speaking at both, but there is lots more with excellent scientists and activists.http://logicon.org/…See More

Recovering from Religion

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.See More

the Thinking Atheist, Sex and Shame

Posted on January 29, 2014 at 9:06pm 12 Comments

I was on The Thinking Atheist last night. We really got into things like how to talk to your children about sex and the bogus notion of sex or porn addiction. If you or someone you know, believes in sex addiction, listen here. It is only a figment of the Christian imagination and their sex crazed guilt.…

I will be talking to Seth on The Thinking Atheist Tuesday. Listen live, call in or listen later. I will be discussing shame and how religions use it to infect others and manipulate our behavior. Tune in.

Radio Show/Podcast

Very fun conversation on a somewhat goofy radio channel. It is on YouTube, but the video/ads have nothing to do with what we are discussing. Thanks to Dr. Sasha Lessin and Janet Lessin for having me on the Sacred Matrix Radio Show. They were excellent interviewers in that they kept it conversational and listened well. Dr. Lessin impressed me with his discussion of Emile Durkheim, one of the founders in the sociology and…

I have not made it to the duck sex part yet, I'm a slow reader.  I think it has a lot to do with my visual (artistic mind) and possibly Attention Deficit Disorder.  I am learning from your book.  I never really understood why my profession was so difficult until some recent prejudice encounters and from learning how religous people think by reading your book.  I hope it helps me learn how to cope better.  I was wondering if you have ever helped anyone who is atheist with anger management:)  It seems that depression and anger is an atheist's or my biggest dilemma.  Never being taught how to live an atheist life and learning it all on your own is painful and sometimes but less frequently very rewarding.

Thanks, Darrel.  Looking forward to Austin!

Mr. Ray,
I'm currently reading Sex and God and am enjoying every word of it. Thank you for this book. I find myself nodding my head at most of the passages. I think this should be required reading in high school when they teach sex education. I can only imagine what the world would be like if we viewed sex without all the disgusting guilt and shame attached to it by all the religions. Again, thank you sir, and keep writing.

Hi Darrel. Last month we breakfasted together at the Lowell Center in Madison, WI (Freethought Festival) and you mentioned that you might be able to help me get my novel published, or at least give me a contact agent or publisher who handles nontheist material. As we had no writing implements handy, we could not exchange contact info. Please respond when you can. Thanks.

Uhhhh, am I the only one who misread 'Bonner Springs'?  Must be the influence of your area of recent study, bouncing around in my Freudian lobe.

Cool!  I will review your book once I have read it!

Ok -- I will read it fast so that I can get your new book! Thanks for telling me about it. I will put it on my wishlist right now!

I got your book from Amazon today! I can't wait to get started reading it!

I really enjoyed your talk at Free Inquiry Group's 20th Anniversay Celebration in Cincinnati.  I also enjoyed our discussion at lunch.
