Daniel Dennett

From Freethought of the Day, Freedom from Religion Foundation. A New York Times quote from Dr. Daniel Dennett that rings so true. Enjoy !


“ . . . I've come to realize it's time to sound the alarm.



Whether we brights are a minority or, as I am inclined to believe, a silent majority, our deepest convictions are increasingly dismissed, belittled and condemned by those in power -- by politicians who go out of their way to invoke God and to stand,…

What is the temperature of hell?

The answer by one student was so 'profound' that the professor shared it

with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have

the pleasure of enjoying it as well :





Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?



Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas

cools when… Continue

Proof of Evolution Found!

So, obviously, this is not actual proof.
It's humor, but therein lies human kind's critique on non-sense, like creationism. ^_^ Enjoy!

Introduction (with assorted musings)



*A repost from my other blog. Nobody ever visits it lol.*



My name is unimportant, but I would like to give some background information about myself so as to allow a more intimate transfer of information.



I was born in summer of 1986 to my father, Bob, and mother, Jennifer (not real names). Needless to say, they were overjoyed with the newest and first addition to their family. Let's just go with the name Raphael, which was bestowed upon their screaming and slimy… Continue

Stages of Grief: Anger

My mom is an alcoholic who is dying of lung cancer. She's always been somewhat religious but her admission of being an alcoholic some years ago prompted a full blown return of her previous christian beliefs. Now you pretty much can't be around her for more than an hour without her mentioning how helpful g0d has been in coping with her addiction. When she was diagnosed with cancer, her church attendance/devotion to her faith redoubled.


When I get think about it I get furious…

God's Divine Plan?

Think of the most hideous thing that has ever happened to a single individual or nation. A woman raped and then savagely murdered right in front of her three children, for example. If a "God" really didn't want that to happen, it wouldn't have, would it? Ditto when it comes to the Holocaust and the massive death and suffering caused by "natural" calamities - in fact, all of mankind's suffering

When "the…

As if the Texas BOE's decision couldn't get worse...

...I happened upon this little snippet from an AOL News article. Here's the excerpt that really boils my blood:



"...the original curriculum asked students to 'explain the impact of Enlightenment ideas from John Locke, Thomas Hobbes, Voltaire, Charles de

Montesquieu, Jean Jacques Rousseau and Thomas Jefferson on political

revolutions from 1750 to the… Continue

Blogging rocks!

OK, so last night I totally bitched about how I haven't been sleeping, and everything wakes me up.......

Yea, so I blogged/ bitched and then I had an awesome nights sleep.

I've decided that blogging, AKA bitching, about not being able to sleep actually helps me sleep.

So, for those who like to read my blogs but aren't particularly interested in hearing me bitch about my latest sleeping patterns I promise to say something about "sleep" in my title…

Heathen - pejorative or nomenclature?

Like every other group of people with common interests at heart over the ages, we, too, have our own label - "atheists". Whether one likes it or not, we just have the need to label everything. But, labels eventually spawn counterparts - slurs, insults, slang, name(calling). Ours, though not directed at atheists in particular, would be "heathen".



heathen, noun -

Children Good Without God

A concerned prospective father sent me a message asking,

"I'd like to learn something as a good father from you. Considering that you're an atheist, how can teach your children how to behave in good manner and ethic. Because when I was a kid, my parents used to tell me "Be good boy and tidy your room then God will bless you...etc." I don't want to say these words to my children as a prospective father. And i wonder what do you…
