Why voting sucks

"Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others" - Winston Churchill

It's a totally screwed up rendition of the "Abilene paradox" where when you vote you accept the idea of the winning party ruling over the losing party and therefore everyone loses.  Not to mention it is a rather barbaric idea that our modern enlightened highly educated society would accept the idea that there must always be a loser who is oppressed by the winner.

I don't accept this…

WasJesus Christ, just another Sun (Son) god and the Bible was based on Astrology? It appears very Likely.

Here is an interesting video, linking the Bible and the events with Astrology.

12 Disciples represent the 12 constelations.

The resurrection after 3 days, represents how the Sun appears to become frozen (dies) for 3 days, in the equinox and then appears to start its return (resurrection).

The similarities between all the Sun gods such as Mithra, Horus and Jesus, also point to this astrological basis for the Bible and Jesus Christ.

The Death on the Cross,…

Evolution of Theism

We opened our eyes and our minds

in the far recesses of time 

and discovered an object we would come to call a tree.

A river flowed beside, 

while above the warm sun sat high, 

and we pondered ever so curiously.

Answers were sought, 

which led to the first human thought, 

being slowly and ignorantly formed.

It is a natural defense, 

A primitive mind's response while…

Australian Christian Homeschooling, Creationism by Stealth,and Killing Children's Critical Thinking Skills.

A recent article in many papers in Australia, highlight a rise in illegal homeschooling practices.

Example:

Though even those Christian homeschooling groups claiming legality are suspicious as I've found references to extremely delusional drivel in books by nutjob…

Calling Black Nonbelievers in Milwaukee

The presence of nonbelievers in Milwaukee is on the rise with the creation of a new group Black Nonbelievers of Milwaukee. We are out to welcome African-Americans in our area who consider themselves skeptic, atheists, agnostics, humanists or perhaps not any label at all.  There is a national organization of Black nonbelievers that new group joined and they are assisting us. In our community it is common to talk about having a church home and getting married in the…

To teach fables, myths, miracles and superstitions as fact is an outrageous thing

“Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing.”

~ Hypatia  (370 - 415 AD)

"it would be in the interests of those who believe in such nonsense as organised religion or creationism to accept the fact that religious books were written by men as a…

is there any (monotheistic or claiming to be) religion of peace?

Let me start with saying that in my opinion there is no monotheistic religion that can be peaceful in the most literally meaning of the word and now let me explain that because the statement I just made can seem to be a little arrogant. A monotheistic religion is a religion that worships one god and one god only. That is one of the most important parts of such religions. If you are gonna look into the holy scriptures of monotheistic religions like Islam, Christianity, Judaism etc, you will find… Continue

Death as an Atheist

Death will never be easy, but the common misconception that it is easier as a christian is entirely false in my experience.



My father was diagnosed with lung cancer a little over a month ago, and this morning he passed away. It was expected, and in a way it was a relief that he went now while he was feeling comfortable rather than it dragging on as he deteriorated, but obviously it's tough.



I loved my dad, and we were close. He was one of the few people who knew I was an… Continue

Why natural selection doesn't work

Natural selection is no mere idle fancy. Every so the logic behind it stirs a call for eugenics. Last time around evolutionists acted as sponsors and consultants for over 30 states in the USA, promoting surgical interventions to stall our species' descent into oblivion. Now "Unless we embrace genetic engineering, we will become a sickly and frail species" says Johnjoe McFadden, reader in molecular microbiology at the University of Surrey. Is natural selection so established a theory that we…

THE BIG FAT SURPRISE

For nearly all my adult years (>50),  I've been told to eat what was recommended to be the most healthy foods and avoid the "bad guys". No to whole milk. No butter. No red meats. No eggs. White poultry meat only. Eat lots of grains and carbohydrates.

We've been duped into believing that eating fat makes you fat, and that a high fat diet increases cholesterol numbers which in turn leads to heart diseases. No proof, just common sense. For 50 years the American Academy of Pediatrics…

Designing the tribute quilt

To me it is very important that the color scheme reflect and celebrate diversity. My nephew is in an interracial relationship, and has an amazing daughter Grace, of whom we expect great things. I would like to have our family members' names embroidered onto the quilt and have enough space for new names to be added. Quilting is celebrated in African-American and many other traditions. My mother learned it from her grandmother and we are hoping that…

Most Christian Apologists Attacking Atheism are themselves Frauds!

Analysing debates between Christian apologists and Atheists has led me to the conclusion that the vast majority of Christian apologists who do such attacking of Atheism in public, demonstrate quite clearly their disingenuous belief system by the nature of and the fallacies within their arguments.

These disingenous people are really simply using religion to print money.…

Challenge fundamentalist religious on public policies and practices

The challenge to fundamentalist religious must be thorough, in the present, and with teeth. The harm of those who use their beliefs based on superstitions injure people, flora and fauna, and the Earth. For individuals to put their confidence on legends of the ancients may bring them comfort and a purpose for being, however, we can not tolerate fundamentalists imposing their beliefs on others.   

It isn't enough to confront the public policies and practices of…

From ignorance to Enlightenment

I, as so many others of my generation, grew up in tightly knit christian farming communities with little exposure to "other" races and religions. We were taught that Roman Catholics and Jews were of the devil and the only way to heaven was through the christ.

WW II changed all that. Strong, young men were swept out of the farming communities to go to war or to building wartime facilities. My father and uncles went away for the duration of the war, with the exception of one uncle who…
