Health Update

Great news! They did a heart catherization and my heat is is great shape! That's a relief.

Unfortunately, my wife left me a few days after this. It's a long complicated story (aren't they all), but one I'll be alluding to as time goes forward.

Explorator Urbanicus, part one

So, I've been trying to figure out a way to post stuff here regularly. I have the odd tendency to disapperate every few weeks for a few months and I don't really like that. To deal, I need to set it up such that I come back here at least once a week for some reason or another.


To do this,…

Mondo Diablo Episode 273: The Earth; She is Unmoved





I don't fully know what http://www.fixedearth.com/ is, and I'm not sure I want to spend all of my time figuring it out. In a nutshell, physics is wrong, Copernicus was wrong, Einstein was wrong, they were all Jews and Kaballists, and the Earth is the center of the universe.



And the guy recording these podcasts has a little imaginary friend or puppet… Continue

"Truth falls anywhere. It is not aesthetic:; unlike the designed lie"

The following is not my typical style of writing because it amounts to little more than appeals to authority. Citing sources is essential in scholarly writing because the author must give credit for the source of information. However, simply citing authorities to back up one’s own claim reflects a dogmatic frame of mind. Decorating one’s writing with citations…

Secular Humanists?





A bunch of pussies. Reservations are for dinner, not the philosophical foundations of one’s life. A respect for those of faith? Why should anybody have respect for

institutionalized stupidity? My imaginary friend disappeared when I was

about three or four. How…

Sunday Sept. 26, Ireland, the powder keg

I will be speaking at the Community of Reason this weekend on "Ireland the Powder Keg." Reflecting on my recent trip to Ireland and what I

Defending Homeschool

The "usual" criticism of homeschooling stacks up like this:



* Socialization

* Curriculum

* Multiculturalism

* lack of testing

* homeschoolers have fewer resources

* poor quality of teacher

* homeschoolers are ideologically-driven

* homeschooled children are ill-equipped to function in society

* and keeping funding from the public schools.



I am delighted to take each of these issues separately.… Continue

The evil of Pope Benedict XVI

In a recent visit to London, the Holy Vicar of Christ continues with the past lies of the Catholic Church, continues to shirk the responsibility of his Church, and continues to spread misconceptions that are obviously false.…

There is nothing fishy about John

In her latest blog post Diana Agorio has made several claims that are unfounded, Unfortunately, since she will erase anything I write there, I will respond to her here.



I'd like to begin by taking her suppositions a step further. In Akkadian, the word for merman is kalīlu. Now, I can't help but noticing the similarity between Kaliilu and Kal El, the Kryptonian name for Superman. A… Continue

On Philosophical Arguments for God

(JBH) Greetings- I have a thought I'd like to toss out for discussion.


A blogger I read recently said he had "backslid" from atheism to agnosticism, because he had read a new and improved version of a certain philosophical argument for the existence of God. He was aware that many such arguments have been refuted, and some past refutations have been overcome by revisions in the pro-god arguments, and so forth. There are still some professional philosophers…

Protest The Pope, London 18th Sept 2010: An account from one who was there.



Yesterday travelled down to London to hook-up with fellow hootoo-er Effers (AKA Alison) to join the Protest The Pope Campaign.



Her account can be read here.





We rendezvoused at St Pancras as planned and navigated the tube to Hyde Park, we knew we were in the right area as we began following the devout with these little yellow "Pilgrim…

A way of spreading atheist memes-an idea worth considering

First of all, I really wanted to make a difference.



I ruled out blogging and writing on forums because I don’t have that kind of time and arguing with christians is frustrating.



Then I considered the Youtube, but I’m not a charismatic person and the only option was to add subtitles to English language clips and post them on my own channel, which I had to start from scratch, so the impact would have been quite…

Daily Beast on Veil Ban in France

French Senate Passes Full Veil Ban
Full Muslim veils will soon be illegal in France: The French Senate passed a ban by a vote of 246 to 1

on Tuesday, and the measure has already passed the lower chamber. Now

there are 10 days for dissenters to challenge the measure, which is

considered unlikely. Several Muslim women have vowed to continue wearing

the face-covering veils, despite the…

of Cardinal John Henry Newman this weekend. Is this beatification really

yourselves.For my money it looks like the Catholic Church is up to it's old tricks again. Plus ca change!…
