If it's not too crass of me, I'd like to invite you all to take a look my new non-proft website, at www.moralcompassblog.com.
Moral Compass takes a closer look at how true the faithful are to their avowed moral principles. We offer no theological arguments, no hermeneutical essays, nor do we slap believers upside the head with insults. Instead, Moral Compass is simply a compendium of religious wickedness. By quoting…
The religious would have us believe intelligent design... I don't wish to convert anyone, but I'll state what I learned. I raised & studied wolves & hybrids for 20 years. Started with white Siberian Wolf and white G. Shepherd mix. Recessive genes? I gradually increased wolf % in hybrids. A number of mutations * occurred! A few, in nature, might have led to new, survivable kinds. Others were degenerate. It's too much to go into here. My point is that it all appeared RANDOM! …Continue
After a lifetime of newspaper subscription(s), I went cold turkey last October (2012) and cancelled all printed versions of the so-called news.
I had many reasons, and I won't bore you with them. I realize newspapers have some value. I hate to contribute to their demise. However.....
I haven't missed my morning newspaper one iota. It's actually a relief not to feel I have to get my money's worth out of reading every word. I certainly don't miss the ads or the local sports. Or…Continue
The video, Islam - the True Message of God, poses questions for other religious points of view. The questions for Atheists are:
The video also makes the statement, “Every human has to believe in some power to…Continue

It's been a battle, having this as an identity. People think its a contradiction of terms. Atheist and Pagan, like the two can't coincide, like they are .... mutually exclusive or something. Well, I'm here to say they are not. Cause first off, no one said that being a pagan required you be a polytheistic believer or a wiccan dual theistic believer. There is no template, there is no dogma, there is no book except what you claim as your own. For me, being a pagan is…Continue
Having just read a book about Thomas Jefferson, I couldn't help but compare the politics of then to now. "The more things change, the more they stay the same".
In his day, it was the Federalists vs. the Republicans--conservatives vs. liberals. (Today's Democrats were yesterdays Republicans.) The bitterness, insults, and accusations were much the same, if not worse, than they are today. Vicious. Nothing will ever change, so we might as well accept the fact that the two sides will…Continue

Media lines are blurred beyond recognition as we podcast an interview with an investigative reporter about her hardcover book (!). Our guest is Katherine Stewart, author of “The Good News Club: The Christian Right’s Stealth Assault on America’s Children”. Yes, that’s right: Christian fundamentalists have found a way to feed their proselytizing agenda in our public schools. This is an important issue everyone should be aware of, and we are as horrified as Katherine is about what’s going.…Continue

Check out my essay here: http://spiceislandatheist.blogspot.com/2013/02/black-history-month-lesson-we-have.html Your comments are welcome....
The greatest question to me at this moment is "what am I?"
Not just as it pertains to my social label of Humanist, atheist, agnostic, irreligious, skeptical, etc., but in relation to my mere existence. This fuzzy feeling I get when crawling around in the darkness of existentialism seems too real. I keep finding new ideas and experiences and when I press their "on" buttons to see what they do, it changes my perception of reality. It's more than just being objective when playing with…Continue
Even by the standards of Ken Ham and the Answers in Genesis mob, Bodie Hodge is a mad man.
Read this http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/2013/02/22/misunderstanding-god and you'll understand why I say this. Quite apart from his usual pathetic attack on atheists (we're just chemicals, you know), it at least reveals the nature of the God he (or they) have invented Here are some of the…Continue
I posted a discussion on Atheist News earlier today about the Oklahoma House Education Committee passing a Creationist bill, but it's not just evolution that the religious legislators want to eradicate from the science curriculum. It's also physical science, escpeically physical science as it pertains to things like climate change and stem cell research.
For this, Creationsts have developed a new strategy, marketing these bills as defending the "academic freedom" of students and…
