Atheist Exile commented on Bitsy Haywood's blog post The Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil
"Bitsy, That was a very good comparison to debunk Original Sin. God is definitely flawed, logically and morally. I guess that's not surprising, given the ignorance of the ancient authors of the Bible."

The Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil

I've always been bothered by why god would have placed a tree in the garden of eden that bore fruit that would cause those who consumed that fruit to have knowledge of good and evil. And then he was so self-righteously angry that they ate the fruit. What did he have in mind? Why would he do such a thing except to set Adam and Eve up for the "fall from grace" that was used to explain all the horrible things that god has supposedly been punishing humankind with ever since. What a perverse trick…See More

Looking Sexy

Posted on October 1, 2009 at 12:59pm 8 Comments

A co-worker and I were examining a picture of some extreme and very expensive high heeled shoes that were quite obviously extremely dangerous to wear as well as insanely uncomfortable. I commented on how bizarre they were and my younger friend said that they were supposed to make you look sexy.



"Look sexy," I said, "Don't you mean they're supposed to make you look fuckable??



First she looked at me with a slightly stunned expression, which I initially thought was from me… Continue

Responsible Party

I was thinking about how so many of the things that athiests/agnostics/skeptics are called seem to have a negative spin in people's minds. For example the label "Brights" instantly makes the people who just couldn't get an A+ average or even an A average feel like tearing things apart with their teeth. Something that doesn't have an arrogant or perjorative ring to it is needed... but what?

And I was also thinking... Democratic Party, Republican Party, Libertarian Party... hmmm. How about… Continue

http://discovermagazine.com/2009/may/15-big-similarities-and-quirky-differences-between-our-left-and-right-brains

I've been thinking about the fact that we have two halves to our brains. According to what I've heard, one side of our brain controls our speaking, while the other side is voiceless. I've always suspected that intuition comes from the voiceless side. I think that the voiceless side is always watching everything closely, observing everything that is going on around us, and… Continue
