About Me:
I'm a semi-retired / involuntarily unemployed electrical engineer who has a rather eclectic background, never mind a few miles on the odometer. I suppose I was an "apatheist" for quite a while - largely indifferent to the whole issue of gods - but after 9/11 and the more blatant appearance of evangelicals and Dominionists on the scene, my atheism has finally come to the fore.

Other interests include high-end stereo and home theater (and with that, CD and DVD collecting), BMWs and general car enthusiasm, single-malt whisky and biking.

I flatter myself that I know my way around Atheist Nexus at least reasonably well (I've been here since November of 2009), so if you need a hand with something, please don't hesitate to give a shout.

A winter poem for you Loren:

Winter is the king of showmen,
Turning tree stumps into snowmen
And houses into birthday cakes
And spreading sugar over lakes.
Smooth and clean and frosty white,
The world looks good enough to bite.
That’s the season to be young,
Catching snowflakes on your tongue.
Snow is snowy when it’s snowing,
I’m sorry it’s slushy when it’s going.
~Ogden Nash

Thanks, that's Ella. That photo is my laptop wallpaper. Btw, I bought VIP tickets to the PA atheist conference in September. VIP tics entitle one to extra hang-out time with the speakers. This year that includes Seth, Matt Dilahunty,and Aron Ra. I am very excited!

I can't believe that either.  We have both been on the site since the Mastodons bellowed their deep, sad, songs, across the American savannahs.

I'm glad you enjoyed your time here! Next time you should try the chili crab with hot buns; it's one of my favourite special-occasion dishes. (: Thank you for the welcome!

Thanks Loren, for the lead to The Midterm Elections Will Drastically Affect Humanists. I tried to get a link to the author and have a little chat. Then I decided I would do my thinking in public so others can smash my reasoning and tell me where I am all goofed up. But I don't have time to think it through right now. 

Basically, it is that Democrats have a tough time organizing ... the old herding cats syndrome ... and I see it as an organizational problem to be worked out through strategy. He hits the nail on the head. Now what?

Loren, is there a way to block a specific person from showing-up in my e-mail?

Oh Loren, you torture me. I love Kahlua and Cointreau and they play terrible tricks on my diabetes. Actually, the liver is what is thrown off track and creates pain like you would not believe. I love alcohol. I love beer. I really love Glenmorangie single malt Scotch. These are loves of the past. I'll do the coffee, whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. 

Thanks.

Oh Loren! I like anything coffee. I would like the recipe. Thanks

Cheers Loren. NIce to meet you. My name's Link by the way. Been away from YT for a while, but recently returned and feels nice to be back. Only came across Atheist Nexus a few days ago, but seems like a engaging space. All the best.

"The Hitch" - A Christopher Hitchens documentary by Kristoffer Hellesmark

Posted on April 17, 2015 at 8:51am 10 Comments

Since the death of Christopher Hitchens in December of 2011, I have anticipated some kind of cinematic retrospective regarding the life of a man who was one of the great intellectual lights of the 20th and early 21st centuries. Certainly there have been tributes and brief snapshots highlighting his spoken word, writings and debates on YouTube and elsewhere, but nothing which attempts to comprehensively represent at least in brief the fulsome cornucopia Hitchens brought to humankind.…

A Note to CBS in re: (Easter) Sunday Morning

Posted on April 5, 2015 at 9:35am 21 Comments

I just posted the following to CBS' online feedback site:



It a rare day when I get so completely put off by CBS Sunday Morning that I turn it off, but you managed to do that for me today.  I've been watching Sunday Morning not quite since it first came on the air 30+ years ago, watched as it did its minor changes here and there, the transition from Kuralt to Osgood, and so on, but I've always at least tried to stick with it.



Not today, and because of two…

The Despicable Reality and Perfidy of the Islamic State

Posted on March 23, 2015 at 8:27am 33 Comments

I wouldn’t have believed it, but I’m pissed off about persecuted Christians.  Whoa, you’re saying, Loren’s lost his grip on reality.  No, I haven’t.  I just wonder if you can maintain YOUR grip on your temper, having seen this CBS News 60 Minutes report by Lara Logan.



American Christians make foolish noises about being persecuted.  Iraqi Christians ARE being persecuted for…

A Non-Trivial Question Regarding a Non-Trivial Religion

Posted on February 10, 2015 at 8:50am 18 Comments

I have a few questions, none of which are meant to be rhetorical:

  • If Islam demands the death penalty for apostasy, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam says that women must be veiled, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam cannot value women as equals to men, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam cannot tolerate the practice of freedom of speech, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam is determined to dominate the world, why should we…
