Putting the Cart Before the Horse

Time and time again when speaking of atheists, the question of whether one can be moral and upright without God and/or religion unfailingly comes up. For years, I have believed that the traditional interrogative is absolutely wrong. The right question is why believers even with God on their side cannot be moral and…See More

Things That Make You Go Hmmm . . . (Humor)

Posted on July 23, 2014 at 5:30am 4 Comments

Have you ever asked yourself why we do things? Why do we do things that irritate others? What is it we do or say that make other laugh. Have you ever wondered why the most embarrassing things always happen when you think no one is around? Why? The following are just a few things that make us wonder what people are thinking.…

There, I’ve said it. Outside of a conversation on breast feeding, nipples seem to be off limits for television. Recently, a television show featuring reconstructive surgery featured breast augmentation among other procedures aired on The Learning Channel. Breasts of all shapes, sizes and colors filled the screen, but…

Controversial topics never made me hide my pen or computer. In fact, the more contentious the subject, the more I am inclined to include it my repertoire of taboo themes. However, there are some areas I only touch only with thick kid gloves. In the black community, any discussion of skin and hair can be a highly…

Hi Don,

You said you would be interested in seeing what I come up with in reading about delayed food allergies.  I just posted a blog post on the likely mechanism of my kind of delayed food allergies.  With tons of references!

Maybe you would be interested in my review of the Manual for Creating Atheists.

New group, in case you are interested.  I always read your thoughtful posts with great enthusiasm and interest:

Justice For All

Justice For All

Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust.  This group will explore the elusive concept of justice.  Topics include racial injustice, death penalty, imprisonment, crime, and other aspects of justice in modern society and in history.  Without gods, what is the basis for justice?  What do humanists and others say about justice?  What do you think about current controversies and cases regarding justice or injustice?

Glad to hear you are doing better. My thoughts are with you.
