"A theme of my writing is that religion is stultifying human growth.  What century are these people living in?  Barbara Walker's "Islamic Holocaust" describes much worse and more tragic stories. This one is an American soap…"

Part II "Ten Reasons Not To Believe"

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.  Time stays still.…See More

Richard Goscicki commented on DAN DANA's blog post Voluntary Euthanasia: A Quantum Theory of Moral Action (part 4)
"Good answer.. As long as the quantum testing is used as a helping or therapeutic resource and not as a final determiner of the euthanasia.  But pain and pleasure are so subjective, how can the numbers be meaningful? Let's say two people…"

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

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 is Bad Karma. The whole world is paying…See More

"I blame the constant war all over the world for these terrible problems. How many computers and books could one cruise missile pay for?  What the heck is this country doing in Afghanistan with people living in the sixteenth century? "

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 happened to be…See More

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…

Atheism on the Radio

Posted on December 5, 2014 at 8:42am 2 Comments

The Hoover Radio Show went fine but only as an icebreaker to more important issues.  It reminded me of early Christian bishops arguing over how many angels can reside on the head of a pin.  I felt like standing up and yelling out, “Look, as you sit here in this luxurious setting, people are getting their heads chopped off, wars are being fought, 15 million people (mostly children) are starving to death and billions have to live in fear of opening their mouth or saying the wrong thing.  Isn’t…

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.

Hi Richard. Starting my day by noticing my cats are not religious but they do not promote genocide!

Greetings, Richard! I noticed we're in a few groups together. I'm over 60 and a retired biology teacher too. I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D
