I was going to join the intergalactic police but the doctor changed my meds

I remember reading a novel about a woman who traveled through space and time only to learn at the end of the book that she was a mental patient. I remember thinking, well that sucks, she was a really interesting person.

The stories that my peers tell me at work have touches of humor, even though I'm not really an Al-Qaeda  operative the way they think I am. I often respond with a story out of right center field. When they ask…

Happy anniversary, Lizzy

We have spent one memorable year together.. It's been a time of growth and change in the mental health system that we have explored together. We are a vital part of the Recovery Advisory Committee that has guided the implementation of Comprehensive Community Services. This Medicaid benefit could potentially speed the recovery of people in Milwaukee County. It may seem strange or unromantic talking about the work that brought us together but that work is an outgrowth…

Flaming ovens and other holiday traditions

We are halfway through the end of the year holiday season and and so  we should take stock off all that we have learned. Lizzy and are are celebrating 14 months of her stubbornly suggesting that I should change my mind when I know I am perfectly right. I just picked up the meat thermometer which reminded me of an amusing incident a week or two ago.

We had gone to the farmer’s market at the 27th street domes and met the…

Naked Atheists

Had the gods bodies like men and women, desire would be the elixir, passion the holy sacrament, coitus the zenith of heaven. But the gods are forever bodiless, and so bodily delight—the greatest wonderment of all—became the entitlement of sunny earth.

Naked atheist looked at naked atheist and they smiled.

Sex and love—it was all the same to them. When ungod kissed the first human genitals into life at the dawn of the Pleistocene, the first human erection greeted the first vulva…

He should have said, not today Satan

Satan, our favorite invisible friend, has been up to his old tricks. According to Freethought Today, Alexander G. Garcia of Middleton, Idaho was sentenced to 5 to 15 years in prison for molesting a 12-year-old girl in the Nampa Seventh-day Adventist Church where he was a deacon. Garcia said that Satan made him take the young girl into the storage room in July 2013. He was also ordered to pay a $5,000 civil penalty and more than $3,000 in fines. Satan has not…

Using an atheist social network

I have been on Facebook for a few years now an actively participate in several atheist groups. It has been difficult to be part of atheist groups outside of the internet. However, I got an atheist magazine for my companion as a solstice present and found information about the south-east Wisconsin free thinkers which has a regular monthly meeting and a radio show. In addition swift is part of atheist nexus an atheist alternative to Facebook. I posted a couple of my atheist blog entries on the…

Is Religion the Offspring of Evolution?

There are three biological events in the life of every individual plant and animal of almost every species of life on Earth, including Homo sapiens, that are the foundation of ecology and evolution. And in the human species, these three events also drive religion, and religion drives much of our behavior and hence our cultures. These events are birth, reproduction, and death. The birth of a new genetically unique individual is a result of reproductive biology, and with very few exceptions,…

Not today, Satan

When I check on the atheist groups on Facebook I regularly read stories of people being harassed by their families of devoutly religious people. Even though Facebook has settings that allow people to block individuals who might insult or post negative comments, somehow these believers seem to break through. These long suffering and I suspect somewhat dense atheists don’t understand you could even have a profile for one set of friends and a profile for a second set.

But the basic…

Do atheists have families or do we raise ourselves?

When I check on the atheist groups on Facebook I regularly read stories of people being harassed by their families of devoutly religious people.

Republican Lawmaker Wants Bible to be Louisiana's State Book

I'm saddened by this for a number of reasons, one being that books should open our eyes to the wonders of our world, be they natural or human (psychological). On another level this offends me, as I once loaned to the LSU library my antiquarian books from the 1500s - 1700s, including works by the Roman orator Cicero, and a couple Greek philosophers. I see this as being anti-intellectual.…

Voluntary Euthanasia: A Quantum Theory of Moral Action (part 2)

This is part 2 of a multi-part series.  Please read Part 1, posted December 7.

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 humanistic…

Reviewing Christian & Islamic Apologetics: Still as Dumb As Ever, Nothing New, Still Totally Ignorant of Reality!

It's been a while since I reviewed religious apologetics.

So I have been searching for anything new on the Theistic landscape.

So far, I've found absolutely nothing new in their arguments for God and for defense of their Faith in God.

I've been also viewing all the latest debates between Theists and others.

Again the Theist debaters, both Islamic and Christian offer nothing new.

The most intelligent Apologists appear to be those on the Islamic front…

The Science / Religion Dichotomy – Another View

Christianity insists on dependence on its god and its savior.  Indeed, it demands submission to that supreme being, saying “thy will be done.”  Islam is not only no different, the very word means “submission.”  Both expect the believer to trust in Yahweh or Allah to provide for them and nurture them and bring meaning to their lives.  The price for that nurturance, though, is utter obedience without question.  One of the immediate consequences of such an attitude is vulnerability to…

atheist billboard

I'm not sure if everyone has heard about the atheist billboard "all I want for Christmas is to skip church I'm too old for fairytales" and a church bought a billboard "marry Christmas" underlining christ but I sincerely hope another one goes up on our behalf

Wendy Wright (Creationist) arguably the Dumbest Person I've Ever Seen on Youtube!

I still use this video of Richard Dawkin's debate with Wendy Wright to remind me of how Extremely, Extremely, Mind Numbingly Dumb, Creationists Are.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72mAWTGr4EM

I'm also in awe of how Richard Dawkins managed to keep his cool, when confronted with somebody so Ridiculously and Obviously Dumb.

I could not be so calm when confronted with such…

China’s crop of outrageous new hotel designs

I was in Chin in the 1980s. I saw spotlessly clean streets with women out early each morning sweeping. I saw butchers slaughtering animals in open-air markets, blood streaming into the streets. There were no flies. I saw small rooms open to the street where people constructed electric irons for the world trade, even U.S. trademarks. I talked to people taking care of babies while their parents worked in factories. Mothers were allowed to take time to nurse their babies and it was not time…
