He's BACK!  After a somewhat sustained hiatus, CoolHardLogic has returned, and this time his Fleidermaus Scheiße takes the form of - Da, Da, DAAAAAAAAH!  Chemtrails!  "What are chemtrails?" you ask. …Continue

World of Batsh!t - #2: Moon Loons (CoolHardLogic - YouTube)

Started this discussion. Last reply by Pat Jun 10. 7 Replies

The moon's a balloon, so says the song.  Problem is, there's a guy out there, perhaps more than one, who want to claim that the moon is actually a PROJECTION (up around 55,000 ft, so he claims!), and…Continue

World of Batsh!t - #1: Sky Demons (CoolHardLogic - YouTube)

We've all seen it - claims either so outrageous or so ignorant that they test the bounds of credibility, and they're usually, though not always associated with religion.  Well, it would seem that…Continue

What kind of smoke alarms do you have? (Daily Kos)

I get an email of links to mostly political pieces from the Daily Kos every day, and that's how I became aware of the following.  Personally, I have no idea whether the three smoke detectors we have…Continue

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 a touch over five years!), so if you need a hand with something, please don't hesitate to give a shout.

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.

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.

Judge Posner wrote the opinion. This may come as a surprise, but Posner was appointed to the federal appeals court by none other than Ronald Reagan. However, as the Republican Party shifted further and further to the extreme right, he distanced himself from it. If you can get the audio link that recorded the oral arguments, it is fascinating. Posner politely rips the opponents of marriage equality a new one.

I tend to agree that the next President will be a woman. It will, in all probability, be Jeb Bush v. Hilllary Clinton. My $$$ is on Hillary, just because the Bush name is a gross anathema. If so, the teabaggers will continue to obstruct anything to improve or advance the US. I listen to them scream "I want my country back." Me? I want want my country forward.

At 12:03pm on August 22, 2014, Pat said…

Loren, sorry it's taken me so darn long to get back to you about Boehner's lawsuit against the President. You're correct in that I found it...well, not interesting from the standpoint of Boehner...but more of a bad episode of bizarre theater here in the US.

The author of the article in Daily Kos is 100% correct in that federal courts, unlike state courts, are courts of very limited jurisdiction. The only cases federal courts can hear are those enumerated in the US Constitution,an interpretation of a provision of the Constitution, or what what Congress authorizes them to hear.

Here's the real underlying stupidity of this lawsuit. Congress could pass a statute giving federal courts jurisdiction to hear this case. Before it goes into effect, guess what chief executive of the US government has to sign it into law?

The whole thing is nothing more than a propaganda ploy to get the true believers would up like a group of striped nosed baboons in a primate house throwing feces against the wall. The mid-terms should b interesting.

Hello Loren,

Thanks for welcoming me to the site, and sorry for taking so long to get back to you.

I'm really enjoying this online community. I'm learning a lot and thinkg a lot :)

Is god good?

Posted on December 14, 2014 at 11:27am 13 Comments

Is god good?

If we’re going to ask that question, the first thing that has to be established is: whose “good” are we using as a standard?  If human good is to be the benchmark, then the task is relatively easy.  Whatever good god recognizes, however, will introduce a degree of vagary which may be insuperable.

Regardless of which deity is supervising this reality, he/she/it cannot be said to be good by human standards in the slightest measure, and one need look no…

Just watched “The Best of Charlie Skinner” on YouTube for the umpti-umpth time.  Sam Waterston’s portrayal of Charlie in the HBO series, The Newsroom,  is dear to me for his alternation between avuncular father-figure and curmudgeonly news director, and I get a big kick out of him.  Watching that made me think about how much I’d love to see Atlantis Cable News become a real, actual news organization, and then…


What I Want for Christmas - Robert Green Ingersoll

That time of year is very nearly upon us, and so it is appropriate that I post this now, I suppose.  I literally just learned of this through the good offices of Seth Andrews and The Thinking Atheist podcast.  I do truly wish the following were words of my own invention, but they're not.  About all I can do is offer them to you for your enjoyment and edification.

Along with my very best wishes for a happy and safe Christmas / Hanukkah / Kwanza / Yule / Saturnalia /…

Right off the top, Interstellar is no small statement, either in time or what it attempts to say.  It runs a full 169 minutes, not quite three hours, and while it might have been able to give its testimony in an edited form, I seriously doubt it would be the same film or have the same impact.

On the surface, it is what you’ve seen in the previews and trailers.  Our Earth is exhausted, fatally damaged by human mistakes and natural disaster.  A physicist played by Michael…
