I say I'm a guy But really I'm just a speck

Compared to a planet

And compared to a star

The planet's just another speck;

To think about all of this

To think about the vast, emptyness of space

With billions of billions of stars

Billions and billions of speck."

You said a lie could run the world before the truth had got its boots on. Well, the truth has its boots on now - and it's going to start kicking. - William De Worde, The Truth


There are few feelings as unpleasant, in that long-time lurching way that it creeps under your skin and fills the pit of your stomach with ash, as the feeling of not having somewhere to belong. Being alone is one thing - people who are… Continue

I don't know if you've ever been privy to it, but one thing that I did deal with as part of my upbringing in a tightly controlled religious environment was apologetics. One night a week, my father would host a small group of people from the church - about six to eight people, on the best nights - and talk them through the nature of how their faith was different to other faiths. It was touched upon, when dad announced it in the church, with a certain sense of morbid awe, the… Continue

Quick FYI re Glenn Beck

Posted on September 25, 2009 at 12:16am 3 Comments

You know that current thing with Glenn Beck boiling rubber frogs, to evoke the classic story of boiled frogs? In addition to any rhetorical idiocies, or inappropriate connections he draws, I just want to say, to someone, somewhere, who might hear it: It's not even true. Frogs get out. Seriously. They're not as stupid as Mr Beck's audience wants to think they are.

See, originally, we tried having an omnipotent, omniscient uber-being....

OH! You tried to hire Google?!?

[happy chuckle] Greets and salutations!

Yes, I see the problem you would've had with the omniscient Atheist Nexus alerter. :)

Thank you for the welcome note. I'm looking forward to spending many interesting hours on this site.

Hi Talen! A minister's son AND from Wollongong - oh, what a cross you have to bear! ;-) Welcome to Atheist Nexus - I'm Kris from Queensland. I'd like to invite you to join our Aussie, Kiwi and South Pacific Atheists group.

It's a great way to keep up with what's happening with atheism in Oz.

I'd also like to let you know about the Rise of Atheism Global Atheist Convention to be held in Melbourne next March. Speakers will include Richard Dawkins, PZ Myers, Peter Singer, Dan Barker and many more. Registrations will be open in the next week or so and I'll send a message to all the Aussie/Kiwi members to let them know when they can book.

I hope you enjoy the site!

PS: Don't tell anyone, but I'm actually rather fond of Wollongong - and minister's sons (but that's another story!)
