Humanism is Tribalism on Steroids
Many theists have difficulty in understanding how atheist/humanists get their morals if they did not get them by stealing them from Christianity. The answer is really quite simple: Tribalism evolved to become more and more inclusive until it reached all of humanity.
As descendants of a common primate ancestor, bonobos and Homo sapiens demonstrate altruistic behavior. …Continue
It might come as somewhat of a surprise to modern readers (it did to me) that the Odyssey was almost fundamentally an expression of the need to have a skeptical attitude to be a good, and especially heroic, person. Homer seems to have matured to some degree between writing the…Continue
I think I have been getting a bit lonely not having other atheists to talk to, and I think my wife is getting tired of listening. Glad to be here!
Can "sexuality" be an open matter of talk in our atheist community? As sexuality could be said as natural attraction to an opposite sex. As per human psychology(where most of them are so called GOD fearing elements), "sexuality" can refer to issues of morality, ethics, theology, spirituality, or religion. Also we know that some cultures have been described as sexually repressive. But as per me "Sexuality" can't be said as immorality. It's an individual perception and most importantly a…

The Pledge of Allegiance
This is one that I should leave alone, but this morning I got one of those “Bible bumper notes” talking about the pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. People are free to write whatever they want, but as thinking people I think it is important that we hold ourselves to higher standard moral excellence.
Are you tired of all the tax dollars being spent on "faith initiatives", "Christian propaganda" and things like The Boy Scouts of America, …who don't allow kids from atheist or GLBT families to join?
Are you sick of the so-called "Prosperity Ministries" able to operate tax-free, while their owners build bigger and more luxurious tax-free mansions?
Are you tired of religious organizations getting to operate…Continue
Saturday night radio doesn't have to be boring - it can be exciting, intellectually stimulating and outspoken. Case in point: ShockNet Radio's American Heathen, airing at 8 ET/5 PT TONIGHT! It's a three-hour extravaganza of commentary, comedy, discussion and analysis from a unique perspective - an Atheist-Libertarian perspective! You won't hear THIS on corporate radio!:…Continue

Since Rome adopted Christianity as their national religion in the 4th Century, Christianity has spread with missionary zeal. The Catholics killed and tortured tens of thousands of people in the Crusades and the Inquisition, all in the name of saving souls from Hell. Then, the Protestant Reformation triggered the 100 years of war between the Protestants and Catholics, and with it many more thousands of lives lost. Then the Spanish took their religious fervor to the New World where they…Continue
Even though I've been writing for atheist publications since 1994, and have two published books, one still available on Amazon, I get lost on the Internet. I was spoiled for all those years by my late husband’s knowledge about such things, and believe it or not it was a challenge for me to even write this. I’m not sure anyone will even see this! I know, poor, poor pitiful me, but really, all I know how to do is write. That’s it. I have a good friend, a computer geek, smart guy, nice guy, who…Continue
(Relax. The title's a joke.)
I lived in Saskatchewan for seven years during my elementary and high school days and it seemed like a fairly normal place. A little too normal - okay, maybe a little on the boring side. It certainly wasn't overrun with demons when I lived there.
Well last week a story ran about a man who carved the…Continue
