Why Atheism?

This is something my husband "Stumbled" upon on-line. It is long but worth reading. The link is below for those that are interested in reading, "Why Atheism?"

I'm Curious...

How many sixteen year olds are out there that listen to oldies rock? Because at my school I seem to be the only one. Top bands are:

Guns N' Roses

Jimi Hendrix Experiance

Black Sabbath

Rage Against The Machine

And much more...

One day, I came to school wearing a shirt with a picture of Jimi Hendrix on it, and everyone who saw it said "Hey look, it's Bob Marley!"

My forehead was red from facepalming.

I almost forgot

As I scramble to get last minute expenses taken care of before the start of this quarter I remember an important aspect to student life....weekly visits to the food bank. Maybe in a couple more years I'll be better at being a poor person. Were I to be symbolized by an animal I'm not sure which would be appropriate.

Dawkins on Mental Viruses

I love Dawkins video on mental viruses and have added it to my videos. If you have never seen it, take a look. It is still the best articulation of the concept that I have found.

Dyson's fear

I hate when non-clerics apply the word "heretic" to a scientist. Clerics at least have an excuse, albeit a catastrophically wrong and childish excuse, but when journalists, say, call scientific dissent heresy it makes me cringe. Too many people already think of science as some kind of secretive, dogmatic society, and combating that incorrect view is already hard enough. Last Sunday's cover article of the New York… Continue

No ayatollahs in our government?

Don't think we're dangerously close to a theocracy? Check this out.

More non-beleivers for the fire.

In the last few years I have become an increasingly vocal atheist.

Over these years I have been amazed by how many other atheists and agnostics I have met. Most of them don't talk to other people about it but once they find out that I am they open up and start saying things like "how can people believe things like that?".

I feel really good that I can be a sympathetic ear and a good source for rational thought and scientific knowledge.

The only thing I struggle with is the… Continue

St. Louis Ethical Society and St. Louis Atheists



The photo shows me in praise of The Flying Spaghetti Monster or hypnotizing myself in prayer, not sure which. The St. Louis Ethical Society and St. Louis Atheists hosted my presentation on Sunday, March 29. 67 Attended with a great discussion and questions afterward. The Ethical Society has a beautiful facility. It is refreshing to speak in a venue that is both beautiful and dedicated to something other than the supernatural. Kate Lovelady and… Continue

Epilepsy: The Origin of Islam

Has a major branch of history been determined by one man's bout with epilepsy? I think so!



Epilepsy Toronto has, on its web page, a list of famous people who have had epilepsy. The idea of the list is that epilepsy doesn't need to stand in the way of achievement. On that list - along with such luminaries as Fyodor Dostoevsky, Joan of Arc, Napoleon and Newton - was Muhammad. Well, you guessed it . . . the incendiary email this organization received from indignant Muslims, prompted… Continue

Which response is better?

Question:
"Do(n't) you believe in God?"

Answer 1:
"Which god?"

Answer 2:
"Of course not!"

Which is better? Answer 1 or answer 2.

Of course, there may be better, more effective, answers to this and I'd love to here them.

Humanists?

I recently joined the local Humanist group. I wasn't sure if I was a humanist - after all humans are trashing the planet. Turns out Humanists are a very diverse group so most would non-believers fit in. They also get some really good speakers at the meetings.

The nature of god

Let’s say, just for the sake of argument, that there is a God and there is an afterlife. What if we get to heaven only to find out that God doesn’t like us. After all, he stuck us on a planet far away from him. He drowns us, burns us, and blows us all over the place. He freezes us, let’s our children die, watches us get beaten, raped, abused and waste away slowly from disease. He does it to animals, too. He even does it to bacteria. Let’s face it, he doesn’t like us. So how do you think he’s… Continue
