Jim C. replied to AgeOfAtheists14's discussion Man forces way into Florida preschool yells at kids about god, allah and so much more.
"On the whole God/Allah thing, it really bugs me that these nitwits don't realize that they're fighting each other over the same god. I've been thinking of designing a shirt that reads: Abraham = Avraham = Ibrahim Get over it!"

"As a member of a group that put up the billboard, I'm upset by the vandalism but not at all surprised. The sign has now been restored but we're anticipating the next round of vandalism. Electronic billboards are nice but this is what we…"

New version of "Big Butter Jesus"

With an enormous tip of the hat to Heywood Banks, writer and performer of the original Big Butter Jesus song, I submit my sequel to it (sung to the same tune):Big Butter JesusGot hit by lightningWith a roar of thunderThat was downright frightening.Seem like the AlmightyBurned the sucker to the groundWhen the sun rose next dayOnly ashes could be found.Chorus:Big Butter JesusFireball JesusThunderstruck JesusUngrounded JesusPyrotechnic JesusInflammable JesusIronic JesusIncendiary LordWith his eyes…See More

I once was blind...

Posted on May 9, 2009 at 10:39am 5 Comments

Many atheists start as believers in some kind of religious doctrine but eventually come out of it. I'm one of those. I was raised by my devout grandmother and my abusive, alcoholic mother. Grandma told me that if my faith was deep enough, prayer would see me through any crisis. So I attended the local United Methodist church, went to the youth group meetings and attended Boy Scouts in the church's basement.

Greetings, Jim! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Aug. <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.

Jim, please consider joining my new group HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN. Herculaneum is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.

I have already started two discussions to get us going: How do we define manhood in the 21st century? and Rites of Passage: A Lost Ritual?.

This is a private group, and discussions can be viewed by members only. Membership is open to men only. Please check it out.

An Atheist Ham club sounds like a good idea! I haven't been on the bands for an awful long time - miss it sometimes.

The chat is really acting up. I was replying to your comment about your father not knowing about your atheism. Is he deeply religious?

Thanks for the friend add. I haven't seen Dean or Kris in way too many years. I'm glad the planetarium gig is working out well for you. You might want to introduce yourself to Richard Valcourt in the sff group. He does volunteer work at the visitor center at Mauna Kea.
