Reason #1467 I love my wife

Posted on November 20, 2012 at 1:30pm 2 Comments

A while back we were standing in line in Costco and we look over and standing in a nearby line is an older fellow in a peculiar outfit. He was wearing cargo pants made out of a fabric with the American Navy logo all over it. He had white hair and a white handlebar moustache (to give you an idea of what I meant by "older fellow"). He was also sporting a white t-shirt with the following on the front in large letters:



"God Fearing

Gun Owning

Disturbing trend in politics

Posted on March 2, 2012 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

I'll start off by admitting that I don't know how "new" this trend is, hence the reason I did not give it that qualifier in my title; however, it is something that has recently begun to stand out to me.

I've noticed a disturbing trend in politics of restating or informing people that alternate opinions or concerns exist, while at the same time saying and doing absolutely nothing to actually address them.

Example:  Fill out, create or sign any given petition on Whitehouse.gov…

Pity the Priesthood?

Before you sharpen your pitchforks and light the torches, let me qualify that title with:  Not all of them!

Those who are child molesters, or knowingly aid such vile excuses for humans deserve all of the scorn and contempt they get from any thinking human.

That said, I was thinking the other day of how religion is basically a mind virus that has permeated and infected much of humanity for millenia.  Then the thought struck me that if that is the case, should we not feel…

Popemobile

Posted on February 3, 2012 at 9:57am 2 Comments

I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but just a quick thought upon seeing another pick of Pope Palpatine riding around in his popemobile...  

Isn't it obvious that even he doesn't believe in God if he's that worried about being assassinated?  Wouldn't "God" protect him if he's supposed to be "His" emissary on Earth?

Contrary wise, if it's his time to go, wouldn't "God" make it happen no matter how much bulletproof glass he's surrounded by?

How to believers not…

Best bit of directing ever!

Posted on November 15, 2011 at 12:31pm 1 Comment

My wife and I were privileged enough to be able to see the world premier of Hamlet in the Original Pronunciation (since Shakespeare's time) this past weekend.  There were some odd cuts in the script, and the original brogue took a little getting used to, but over all it was an excellent production beautifully acted and directed.

 

Why am I posting this on an Atheist blog?  Because of one particularly amusing bit of directing.  In the scene where Hamlet is reading a book and…

media yet again effs up portrayal of bisexuals

I know I don't write here often, so feel free to ignore this post if you want, but I had to post somewhere.I know it's just a tv show and a fantasy one at that, but watching the latest episode of "True Blood" bugged me.  A character (male, vampire) has been strung along in an on-again off-again relationship with a female vampire.  In the mean time he's been getting close to a self proclaimed "Queen" (male, human).  Anyway, long story short for those who don't watch the show, the male vampire…See More

Well, perhaps we should see what we can do to get things going again. I'd love to pow-wow even if it's just a few of us getting together for coffee, or whatever at Denny's(sounds like I'm settin' up a date). I think it would be a great start. Thanx man!

Thanx for the gracious welcome! It is good to see others from Reno here, too bad there's not more. Eventually I'd like to arrange a meeting of freethinkers here locally. Let me know what you think of that. Good to hear from ya!
