Radio Show

Posted on March 16, 2015 at 11:30am 26 Comments

The Garin Hoover Radio Show is on line.  It was recorded March 12 and featured a Jew (Manny), a Christian (Rev Terry Jones), an imam and an atheist (moi).  The discussion was centered around the question, "Is Islam a Religion of Peace?"

The debate was often heated and vituperative. Rev Jones, I thought, was very good with an all-American cowboy mentality. He told the imam, "we don't want your Sharia Law, so don't even try to bring it here."  He made national news last year by trying…

Part II "Ten Reasons Not To Believe"

Posted on February 27, 2015 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

The next essay in Pot Stories and Humanist Essays is “Ten Reasons Not To Believe.”  A couple of them are unique and especially important as they are key ideas in my philosophy and worldview.  Number One, of course, is obvious and should occur to everybody at one time or another.  God knows where you’re going, heaven or hell, and if the latter, created you anyway.  Think of it:  a constant, torturous, hopeless state of eternal pain and suffering.  No hope of ever getting out. …

Some funny and interesting comments about Pot Story essays, Part I

Posted on February 17, 2015 at 10:00am 0 Comments

I’m thinking of renaming the first essay “Cardinal Ratzinger and Chaos Theory” to

“The Story of the Moron and the Mouse”

Ever wonder why there’re no clergy listed on the National Sex Offender List?  To my mind the first story gives a plausible explanation.  It also tells how the cards are stacked against the poor and working class.  In 1964, W. Bush was admitted to Yale with inferior grades as a “legacy student.”  As you know, I’m not religious, but this…

Letter to Joan Denoo

Joan, thanks from your encouragement on Pot Stories.  I'm writing a little summery of each piece and I'm really having fun just going over this stuff.  There're 27 separate pieces, each with its own information and lessons to be learned.  And the diversity of history and thought.  All for three bucks. 

True story: I was in a Manhattan Blarney Stone bar drinking fifty-cent beers. It was the mid-'80s.  I got involved in conversation with a reporter for the New York Post, which…

The Wrong Meaning of Life

Posted on January 16, 2015 at 1:30pm 13 Comments

Many church or mosque goers believe religion gives their lives “meaning.”  It’s a delusion, an appealing but false concept.  What meaning could being credulous enough to believe the preposterous give one’s life?  If anything, I think a good and magnanimous god would disdain such behavior.  They’re abandoning reason for self-interest and wishful thinking. 

In biology, the Prime Directive (PD) governs all life down to insects, worms and beyond.  The force that governs all life is…

Hi Richard.
I agree these bellicose religious bomb devotees need to take stock of reality.

I still don't see an Endmeme group. Did you change your mind?

Hi, Richard. It took along time to find the roach story in my backup drive. It was intended to be a video, created with Poser. The learning curve was steep, and trying to create the room and objects with yet another program eventually defeated me. In order to send you the rough draft I'll  need your email. If you want you can send it to me at ruthanthonygardner@yahoo.com or friend me to use a private message. I appreciate your curiosity.
