When Might Makes Right?

   Not half an hour ago, I called 911 for only the second time in my life.  Was there a car accident nearby?  Someone staggering around clutching their chest?  Screams in the night?  Blood?  

   Nope.  It was just my neighbors,exercising their Second Amendment rights as they do nearly every nice day or weekend, and, as irritating as listening to a couple of hours of target practice may be, it's nothing compared to the alarm of hearing assault weapons fire at night.  

  That's…

My Journey

The journey began years ago.

I have traveled the path through my mind many times.

It has been in recent past my mind has begun to heal from past turmoil.

You see what U get is turmoil when dealing with the past in an obsessive compulsive manner.

Remembering the past is suppose to be in a natural recall mode.

I was born into A  Pentecostal/Methodist family.

Until recently did I realize that Although I thought that my Pentecostal Grand Mother was the…

Realization

REALIZATION

 

One day I realized just why religious people, or that fraction of “Believers” hate atheists, is that they are literally scared of us.

They are simply afraid that their beliefs will be shown to be false.

And with that, the made up afterlife will not be there for them.

There is no great beyond.

There isn’t a “higher order” or that they are the “Chosen” of the all mighty.

Their lives are, at least in their eyes, limited, or…

Prison Planet

The US arrests and prosecutes more people on the basis of their ‪#‎HIV‬ status than the rest of the world combined http://is.gd/ZdjiFl

Veterans Administration

This faux outrage over ‪#‎VA‬ is infuriating since it is now established that it is systemic and been reported for over 10 yrs. That is how long I have been reporting the same issues to my own Senator Claire McCaskill-D and Representatives JoAnn Emerson-R and Jason Smith-R. So, it is a bipartisan, systemic, bureaucratic failure…

Evolution of Homo sapiens and institutions as a consequence of chaos

It is difficult to believe that Iraq was once a garden of Eden that supported large populations and had lush fields of crop and a thriving culture. Climate change ended that era. Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey: The Immortals: Contemplate the future with a hopeful vision explains the history of that ancient part of the world from 5,000 years ago, the city of …

Wondering....Just Wondering....

I've not been on Facebook for some time as an atheist.  I've used several user names and at a certain point I get kicked off.

Now originally I was kicked off because of complaints field against me by "religious" nut jobs.

Now these nut jobs seem to have nothing else better to do then hunt down people who declare themselves as non-believers in some invisible guy in the sky.

I went on as an atheist, but was not looking for trouble just trying to hook up with others like…

How UC–Santa Barbara Can Turn Grief Into Action: Divest From Gun Manufacturers

"if UCSB students, alumni, faculty and staff want to channel their feelings into constructive action, here’s a suggestion: ask the University of California Regents if its $88 billion endowment is contributing to gun violence by being invested in gun companies that fund the National Rifle Association (NRA) and obstruct common-sense gun policies. If it is, they should demand that the UC system divest itself from these merchants of death."…

Reference comment on Christianity

As an atheist I spent some years reading philosophy to gain an understanding of the secular foundations of ethics, and reached an understanding that satisfied me. (for those interested, see http://www.atheistnexus.org/pr... ). Then I heard a Christian declare that the Absolute Truth about ethics was the teachings of Jesus. So I asked "What DOES Jesus teach about ethics?" I went through the…

STARING MORTALITY IN THE FACE

One of the truisms of life is this. That which is alive will die.  It happens to be true of every living thing we see or have ever come in contact with. Cats, dogs, birds, deer, crocodiles, cockroaches, flies, trees, grass, flowering plants, and the myriad varieties of bacteria. All will eventually die. Each and every one of us included. It was the American author William Saroyan who famously said, Everybody has to…

How Low Can You Go? (Part II in Places to Visit Series)

“The sins of the fathers shall be visited upon his sons unto the 7th generation”—Wording may change, depending on which of the hundreds of biblical conversions available.

Atheists should not hide

     I'm sitting here  wondering if anyone here has ever considered what the repercussions would be from atheists on the internet all going to safe zones where religious people are not allowed...I mean...should not the objective be...to have the material we create out there for all of those that are on the wire and undecided? Safe is certainly not courageous. And in the age of information...where bad information is shuffled around more than accurate information..at the speed of light..should…
