With open mouth and open mind,
I came into the world to find
Life's riddle in one word defined
And now, that life is left behind
And though I know they would be kiind,
With open mouth and open mind,

Dr Binayak Sen
First, he is handed down life imprisonment under some 125 year old and obsolete sedition law and now his bail pleas stands rejected by the Chattisgarh High Court. That is the funny case of Dr Binayak Sen's. The prosecution alleges that the searchers couldn't find a stethoscope from his place and he professes to be a medical doctor! How funny?
If a case is built on such findings then Mr Ramjethmalini's assertion that it was “a case of no…Continue

Betty Dodson Wiki
Betty Dodson, PhD, (born August 24, 1929) is an American sex educator, author, and artist. Dodson held the first one-woman show of erotic art at the Wickersham Gallery in New York City in 1968. She left the art world to teach sex to women. She is widely known as a pioneer in women's, and to a somewhat lesser extent men's, sexual liberation, having…Continue
After reading an article about the secular coalition writing to congress expressing their desire to vote down the resolution to incorporate "In God we Trust" everywhere, I got into a mature and structured...Facebook war... with my father. A quick overview of where he stands: he loves almost everything that Beck/Rush/Hannity/fox news says. He wasn't this hard headed 10 years ago, but now it's become ridiculous.
I post this hoping for advice, is there any hope for him? Any…Continue

I am sure many, if not all of you, have seen these before but it just fills me with regret to see a website were the person puts out so much time and effort to create and support a delusion.
So without further dely here is a wacko website for Jesus.
Observation and thoughts derived from the book The God Delusion: Chapter 10, Dawkins wrote the statement that 96 percent of the population of the United States thinks that they will survive their own death. If one was to say that should I jump off this 12 story building unaided, after I hit the bottom of the pavement, I will survive that fall. Any reasonable person would have no other recourse but to find the nearest phone and call 911 for emergency services. Because my statement would…Continue

I was listening to a debate between Dan Barker and Dinesh D’Souza. They eventually got to the afterlife as D’Souza has recently written a book about it. D’Souza explained his evidence for the afterlife as follows: There are thousands of people who have experienced a Near Death Experience, or NDE. Where are they? They are walking around, driving cars, going to work, etc. If the mind is producing hallucinations at the time of death, how did the brain reverse this death process? How can…Continue
... j/k, it isn't what you think.
I recently entered a film contest with some fellow heathen buddies, and we created this short film. Keep in mind, none of us had any significant film experience beyond armchair criticisms.
It is a dark little apocalyptic film. Hope you…Continue

When I was growing up, my mum, who had been raised Catholic, still talked quite a lot about all things religious. She wasn't devout anymore; her mother had died when my mum was 15. Her one goal after that was to go to Heaven so she could see her mother again. But then someone told her that in Heaven you don't recognize people that you used to know. My mum then figured that there was no point in going to Heaven if she couldn't see her mother again, and mostly gave up her faith. I always…Continue

Follow me, fellow heathens, back into a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. Join me, here, in the Twilight Zone.
In my second installment of "Twilight Zone and Atheism", I'm going to take a look at one of the most famous episodes of the series: "It's A Good Life".
This particular episode focuses on a town crippled by fear, as many TZ episodes do. What sets this particular one apart, however, is what the townsfolk are afraid of: a child with…Continue

I have nothing but respect for the people of Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Yemen, Algeria, Syria, and Sudan. For the citizens of any country who have for decades suffered under oppressive regimes to come together and peacefully demand their right to rule themselves - without the prompting of any leader or political party - is truly unprecedented and reassuring. My thoughts are with these people, and I hope that the 21st century ushers in an era in which truly democratic societies…Continue
