World Wrestling's Steve Austin on Why Same Sex Couples Should be Allowed to Marry

“OK, so two cats can’t get married if they want to get married, but then a guy can go murder 14 people, molest five kids, then go to fucking prison, and accept God and He’s going to let him into heaven? After the fact that he did all that shit? See that’s all horseshit to me, that don’t jive with me.”See More

Meeting William S. Burroughs

Posted on January 19, 2014 at 10:00am 0 Comments

A friend took me to a dinner at the home of a Manhattan dowager who turned out to be the agent there for the paintings of Brion Gysin, Burroughs' co-conspirator in magickal displacement of time and space known as the cut-up (slicing pages of a manuscript in half or quarters, then, John Cage-like, rearranging the pieces in such a way that they create in a kind of Flash Gordonesque, Hegelian manner, new messages, some actually predicting future events. I had long been fascinated by Burroughs,…


On Euhemerism, Yesterday & Today: Jesus, Elvis, and Antinous: Is Bieber Next?

Posted on July 23, 2013 at 11:30pm 3 Comments

While studying the occult for about a decade prior to becoming an agnostic, I read H. P. Blavatsky, Manly P. Hall, and, most valuably, Gerald Massey.  Blavatsky and Massey were sober critics of Christianity; the former became famous for saying "there is no religion higher than the truth," and the latter explored the death and resurrection myths that went into the making of the myth-in-chief: Jesus.  Blavatsky pointed out the similarity of the name, Krishna, to the name Christ, and Massey…


Something is Rotten -- Very Rotten -- in the State of Texas

I've always maintained that so-called pro-life advocates for the unborn have little science to back up their cockamamie theories concerning abortion and rely, in most cases, on religious intolerance, bigotry, and slavish devotion to dogma. All three of the solar phallic monotheisms, the Abrahamaic faiths, preach male dominance and female submission, paternalistic hegemony that by now should be consigned to the dust heap of history. Allowing a woman to have total control over her bodily…


Debunking the Beatification and (Carefully, if Illogically) Planned Canonization of Pope John Paul II

Posted on July 5, 2013 at 4:24pm 9 Comments

Not long ago, I argued a contract case before an appeals court after losing in a bench trial (trial to judge, as opposed to jury).  We were suing a couple who basically swindled my client, a builder.  At some point disagreements between the parties developed, and the purchaser-defendants began to request add-ons and upgrades in order to exceed their loan guarantee.  The contract made the purchasers responsible to apply for a loan once…


Popepropaganda: The Vatican as a Perfect Union of Church and State

Posted on May 27, 2013 at 8:23am 0 Comments

Perhaps the most misunderstood, and still mysterious symbol in the lexicon of the 19th and some 20th century occultists is that the Baphomet of the French magician known as Eliphas Levi.  The androgynous goat enflamed with Luciferian light atop rather obvious sub-symbols of the Earth, hermaphroditic accoutrements, and a face with horns (the Devil being God to those you dislike).  The suggestion is Pan, reminding us of the amazingly petty and archly devious ways the Roman Church has dealt…

Self-expression is individuality, and our individuality is our self, which ought to be our chief concern.

Thanks for the comments James.

Good to know about Osteen, the #1 Fraud in America today. Can we call Chopra #2? Pun intended.

James, in case you are interested in discussions on this topic:

Justice For All

Justice For All

Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust.  This group will explore the elusive concept of justice.  Topics include racial injustice, death penalty, imprisonment, crime, and other aspects of justice in modern society and in history.  Without gods, what is the basis for justice?  What do humanists and others say about justice?  What do you think about current controversies and cases regarding justice or injustice?
