I have to share this, it's great news

So I just found out from the boyfriend's sister that their father is doing much better now. Wait, I didn't even say WHY this is good:

 

Alright. So two weeks ago, my boyfriend's father was hit from the back while he was on his motorcycle. He always was a responsible person(making sure he was seen while on his bike, wore his helmet and such).

Well, he was going to pick up his son(not the boyfriend, but the bf's little brother) and was waiting for the light to change. As…

New to the site

Being a student at an HBCU in a state considered to be a part of the bible belt, with religious parents and family, it feels great to be in a website/group that won't immediately consider me insane.

Why Men are angry and Women are confused: xposted from my FB

First, the worse thing to see when you're getting ready to write a blog entry is a banner for bug killers. Ugh, did they HAVE to use roaches?!

(sorry, I really hate bugs and vermin)

 

I've been doing a bit of writing today, and a bit of reading. One article(I'm thinking more of an opinion piece) was on "Why Men are Angry". And it got my brain to spinning.I'm 29 and I notice that kids(yes, we are still kids even though some of us have houses and a family...ask our…

UNLV Sex and Religion Talk

Just saw an article in the UNLV campus newspaper on my Sex and Religion talk.  The reporter did a good job summarizing it.

Exploring Conspiracy: Persisting delusions of Mind-Control & Alien Abduction

This post is a follow up to an earlier article detailing some of my encounters and conversations with people who believe they have been abducted by aliens. Some who have followed previous writings of mine may find some informational redundancies but, while continuing my narrative, I also like each article to be able to stand…

Mind Your Own Business! (WARNING: Portions are graphic)

Fresh blood has a coppery scent that sticks in your memory like thick red syrup. My father was a doctor and I often went with him to the emergency room where he treated everything from sick babies to high school drunks, but that night was nothing I had ever seen before. I walked into an emergency room soaked with blood. The metallic smell was overwhelming, but did not compare with the blood that seemed to cover everything. My dad disappeared behind operating room doors, as I stood…

Some People Like to Lie

I recently found this site through a friend, and found it fascinating.

However, I would like to sayone thing.  Some of your members like to lie.

i found, to my surprise, that my sister was on this site, telling some very

untru things about our life.  True, we were raised in a horrid, fundamentalist

atmosphere that has taught us all what a sham religion is, but she was way, way

too young to remember all she claims, and she basically had a very normal…

Holy Newt! Or, Salamanders, Lizards and Geckos for President

If only other species could lead for awhile. . .since our species seems so inept.

I might actually suggest The Newts--gentle, deliberate, slow, peaceful, amphibious, non-theist. . .if Mr. Faith-of-Our-Flounders wasn't desecrating the word:

Holy Newt!

Thrown out of church yet again...

I was explaining to the Sunday school classroom that the ancient Sumerians must have been incredibly confused when they saw God create the universe 6,000 years ago. They probably all needed a stiff drink to calm themselves, so they drank a ton of beer (a beverage that predated the creation of the universe by a few thousand years.)

Random Thoughts

I've never been part of a group and AN feels like a support group right now.  Thank you. I've had what I thought were unique and sometimes humiliating experiences that I'm going to get off my chest today.  Pardon my french because this post will be peppered with profanity.

 

I lived in Houston and the folks I worked with felt the constant fucking irritating need to pray for me, often at work.  I was dealing with some serious issues with my son and in a moment of weakness after…

Theist Propaganda – Creation – the movie about Charles Darwin

OK.

 

Who’s seen this movie?

 

And who knows the history?

 

I got the movie out, knowing nothing about it.  I watched the whole thing, surprised that it had some supernatural type scenes in it – in the form of dream sequence, but going along with the creativity of the movie all the same.

 

Then I get to the extra bits.  The making of the movie type thing on the DVD.  And I get a whole lot of Christian propaganda. 

 

What…

Southern California

Back from a whirlwind week in Southern California and Las Vegas.  The California Lutheran University Secular Student Alliance Summit was awesome.  So fun to see new leadership developing at the university level and JT's new efforts to start High School groups is even more inspiring.

Big bang and god’s creation

It is a normal practice for a theist to attribute everything to god from creation of the universe to its day to day running and finally destruction. His attitude towards science is that it should prove that there was no such thing as god. That shows a crisis of confidence in the theist mind.



Science believes in inquiry and experimentation in order to validate something.…

Sextus Empiricus

OK now we're getting somewhere. I like what this guy is on about. A bit from Wik below - but there is lots more on the wik page. I like this stuff, and wouldn't mind having a discussion about this further from those interested or who can express their own understanding of this philosophical perspective - and it's implications for life generally and personally.



This from Wik:



Sextus Empiricus raised concerns which applied to all types of knowledge. He doubted the validity… Continue

Pyrrho

Hi,



I've been told I might be a Pyrrhoist. I'm not so sure! LOL



Perhaps I am. But then again, perhaps I'm not. I do have some quite strong views on life, and I do believe that we can know some stuff. But really what I've read below, is all that I know about Pyrrho. So if you know more and can enlighten me further - please do! :)



This from Wik:



The main principle of Pyrrho's thought is expressed by the word acatalepsia, which connotes the ability to… Continue

Let's drug screen Congress annually!

Like it or not it seems the drug screen has become a rite of passage in this age of corporate control.



Congress does not take any annual drug screens that I know of. This may be part of the reason some good legislation gets blocked and some bad legislation gets approved. Certainly, when I take my annual drug test with cohorts and the ones that fail get bounced, it makes my workplace more productive.



Are Congress people more productive outside of the broadly implemented…

Mondo Diablo Episode 299: It's a Conspiracy





This is a two-parter, so today you'll be getting the first half of "It's a Conspiracy," which includes clips from The Hitler Channel's "Secret Societies," with crazy old David Icke. Now, some of you may be familiar with Icke from Alex Jones and the like, so you may not know that Icke thinks there's a race of alien lizard people disguising themselves as powerful leaders. He really thinks this. Hey--some… Continue
