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…
I find it very funny that the religious concept of Evil doesn't exist in reality.
The nearest we can get to evil in human nature are psychopaths.
But, the cause for their inability to comprehend human empathy or altruism is known to be caused by damage or faults within the limbic system (empathy center) of the brain.
Thus even psychopaths are not evil.
If found early enough, they can be chemically treated and behavior can be modified or controlled.
Those that get…
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
I read the Quran 20 years ago, though the book was entitled Koran.
It was very interesting, except I founds parts abhorrent, such as if you cannot convince a non-believer to believe in Allah, on the second time, you can remove his eyes, if after the third time he still does not believe in Allah, you can take off his head.
This is indoctrination by fear of torture and threat of death.
Hardly a humanistic, good will gesture to one's…Continue
most of the people i grew up around where religious, my ma and pops where as moderate as possible though (thank....well the universe lol). but i grew up around alot of rude and bigoted extreme type ones too. but also i"ve met alot of atheists and agnostics who happen to try to offend people of religion on purpose, now both sides have the right i mean in america anyway. but don't you think ignorant religious people and people without belief who are ignorant are both in the wrong, both can…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
Creationism: Institute for Creation Research (ICR):=> FRAUDS!
Answers in Genesis :=> FRAUDS!
Creation Research Foundation:=>FRAUDS!
COMMITMENT: To demonstrate the bible is absolute truth and a creator exists citing scientific evidence:=> FRAUDULENT!
INTENT: To disprove evolution and somehow consider this as proving a creator exists (which it really doesn't achieve):=> FRAUDULENT!
APPROACH or TECHNIQUE: Posing arguments to confound laypeople and…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
