Future Work Skills 2020

People with skills on the computer have a future, as far as employment goes. Individuals with talents such as those used here on Atheist Nexus will have the jobs of the future. Production of goods will continue to flow offshore, leaving the construction trades and service jobs for domestic employment. More people need training for international…

Book Review Curiosity: The Desire to Know and Why Your Future Depends on It

Not very often does a book come along that I feel is about me until I read Ian Leslie’s book “Curiosity: The Desire to Know and Why Your Future Depends on It.” I shouldn’t be writing this review because I am biased, which a reporter should never be. However, within six-pages, “Curiosity,” it made me feel as if I had…

Americans Turning Away From Organized Religion in Record Numbers

A bit of good news, for a change, 

Americans Turning Away From Organized Religion in Record Numbers  

Why would anyone turn away from centuries old traditions and beliefs?

1)  Do religious beliefs held by an individual create opportunities for questioning, doubting, exploring, experimenting, inventing or do they offer feelings of discouragement, helplessness, depression,…

To church she went

To church she went,

To church she went,

What is love? The little girl asked.

Well, God is love they said.

To church she went,

To church she went,

The elderly spoke the word of God.

God hates sin and he is watching you.

To church she went,

To church she went,

There is a heaven and a hell,

Do you know where God will make you end?

To church she went,

To church she…

A More Friendly Atheist

So as most people know the comments section of You Tube is mostly filled with hate and very seldom filled with people actually talking to one another.

Well, I don't know what pulled me in.  Whether is was someone saying the earth is 6000 years old or someone saying that there is no evidence for evolution I was soon responding with responses and links.  What started as trying to teach and argue turned into me becoming a jerk to theists.  It became entertaining to always be getting some…

I have been chatting with a person from Yemen on the internet and so looked into the history, politics religion, and geology of that ancient nation. It is an arid land and beautiful as that kind of temperature zone is in its way. One of the videos I watched gets at the heart of what I find so impossible to accept regarding Islam. Take a look and share your reactions. …

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. …

When Atheist Lovers Collide

"Anyone who believes in that shit is an idiot. Feeble minded and stupid."

Man, that is pretty harsh an assessment of those who believe in religion, isn't it? It's even harder to hear when you don't share the same attitude towards…

Better to be Thought a Fool

I don’t know how many times I heard my father say, “It is better to be thought a fool, than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.” The first time I heard those words came while I was bragging about my Honor Roll performance in the sixth grade. I didn't know precisely what it meant, but I figured it out quickly…

God--Man's Best Invention

So, I was told in school to write an essay on "Man's Best Invention". This is what I came up with....

God--Man's Best Invention 

An invention is something, typically a process or device that simplifies work. There are tons inventions which have changed our life, like the spinning wheel, electricity, plastic, antibiotics, etc. 

One can't…

Atheists vs. Superstition

I just started a new website called Atheists vs. Superstition.  I think the people on this site may be interested in it.  You can join the forum, blog or just read the content.  It does not have much in it as I just went public with it.  Maybe you could add a comment to the blogs or better yet join in and add something to the forum topics or start your own topic.  To see the topics that I started the forum with, or to make a comment on…

Gershwin Got It Right

Ira and George Gershwin had it right in the stage play "Porgy and Bess," which is set in an imaginary town in South Carolina. In the play, Porgy sings "I Got Plenty of Nothing." The Gershwin's got it right with that tune as The…

The result of Home Schooling and Religious Education!

Here is a video showing what religious education and home schooling creates.

Some of you may find this very scary.

Education that emphasises Rational Critical Thinking, should be mandatory for all children.

Regardless of their parent's religion.

Don't you agree?

The Christian Movie "Indoctrination", So Fallacious that it is Funny!

I just finished watching promos and the short version of the movie and realized it contains all the most common fallacies of reason.

Everythting from Strawman, False Analogy, False Dichotomy and even the Slippery Slope fallacy are so obvious in this movie.

Even the Title is a Fallacious.

The only Indoctrination about the Movie is the movie is an attempt to Indoctrinate viewers into believing that public schools are dangerous, which is indeed false.

The only thing…

An Archaeological Moment in Time

It is hard to imagine that the earliest Homo sapiens had such gorgeous bodies, male and female, or the warriors looked so much like our Hollywood muscle men with pretty faces. The English weren't called English in the period to which he refers ... but hey, he tells a far more compelling story than that told the in museums of the world. I wish he had told about the role of women as a more exalted position, but if he told the truth, no one would believe him. Well ... a lot of people won't…

Voluntary Euthanasia: A Quantum Theory of Moral Action (part 5)

This is part 5 of a 5-part series.  Please read them in the order they were posted.

I contemplate writing a book on this subject intended for the educated reader, tentatively titled “My Death, My Choice: A Secular View of Voluntary Euthanasia” in which this quantum theory will play an integral role.  The book assumes that readers hold a secular humanist worldview.  That is, secular in the sense that no deities, afterlives, or other supernatural notions are involved, and…

Regarding Last Week's Episode

I don't know what I did, or said, to warrant the obviously simmering rage directed at me. I had pretty well been ignoring this person so there were no grounds that I know of, to stomp on me with both feet. I simply responded to a comment by another more, no less.

When the explosion occurred, I did respond back, & after realizing what I was doing, I deleted those comments, & got yelled at for doing so.

I have never made claim to being ''nice''…
