my revised and amended letter to the Pope ,and his buddies

Dear Head Priest



My name is Quinton Christie, and I’ve written a book about you, amongst other Lighthouses of Faith.



It is not a very nice book, because I point my grubby little fingers at you a lot, while I insult you, and your faith, for more than 200 pages.



I make fun of your gods, and your scriptures, and I call you all sorts of terrible names.



I bring to my reader’s attention all the inaccuracies, the mistakes, and the deliberate lies your… Continue

religion....

just because someone is muslim dont mean they will bomb the place..just because someoen is an athiest doesnt make them a bad person..i am sick and tired of people being judged because of what they choose to believe in or choose not to believe in. every person deserves to believe what they choose and if that is the bible and god well good for them. i choose to be non-religious, some may call it an athiest whatever. i hate being bible bashed and having someones beliefs thrown at me, i dont…

New Christopher Hitchens Debate - Just posted on Youtube

I've been wondering how he was doing. It's so good to see he still has a voice in this world.

The shell conception of the body politic

It is easy and therefore tempting to conceptualize things two-dimensionally, and this is no different when it comes to thinking about society. We use bell curves and bar graphs to analyze all the different segments of society, but things are different when we want to look at society as a whole. In this case, I find it is helpful to think about society as a spherical entity, with parts of this mega-organism closer to the core of the sphere and many other parts far closer to the surface area. One… Continue

Another rant on motivation

While watching the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, I was inspired to write about thumos. The prototypical thumotic character, in the long vein stretching from Achilles and Odysseus to Mel Gibson and William Shatner, has always been thought of as the hero, the powerful, swash-buckling, motorcycle-riding, black leather-wearing, straight-shooting, quick-witted, most-popular person. I call this the “rocket-man” persona. It is the expression of the thumotic, spirited, “eternal fire”… Continue

Dr. DeGrasse-Tyson, I presume.

If you read my blog, you know that I have been struggling with a label.  Am I Humanist?



I've been reading and watching and thinking and musing and whatnot and, sure, I agree with so much of the tenets of those who call themselves Humanist or Secular Humanist.  So what.  I realize it's not that big of a deal.



The other day I was listening to a podcast that had a wonderful interview with Neil DeGrasse-Tyson talking about this EXACT THING.



Like, isn't it amazing… Continue

and they refuse to pull over and let you drive.

Spirituality and being non-theist

Hi again, 

I do not want to debate, just get answers or opinions. But when I went to therapy group the other day, we talked about spirituality, and I did not raise my hand because ever since I was a kid I was told spirituality was for the religious. Well I am a non-theist, and do have…

The Dutch perspective

As promised, regarding the comments on my previous blog entry.

 

First of all, an excerpt of the article regarding Dutch scientists and their believe systems.

 

Scientists godless 

 

Of all Dutch scientists, 44 percent consider themselves to be atheists. Scientists are irreligious much more often than the rest of our population, fourteen percent of which says they’re atheists. As far as their…

God gives me a brain capable of reasoning, cloaks himself so well that I cannot detect him, and then punishes me for using my reasonable brain.  What a dick!

My towering castle

Not very long ago I had a towering castle in a large open field. It was an amazing castle. Each brick seemed as though it was perfectly made, and it was shiny and magical. Its walls dwarfed all other structures. I swore it was so tall that the night moon had to jump over it. It had been there ever since I could remember. I used to gaze at its majesty and it gave me such a great feeling when I looked at it.

As the years progressed, however, I began noticing that my soaring castle, as… Continue

Tossed out of church this morning

Thrown out of church again today. I was trying to impress this cute lawyer sitting next to me, so I stood up and shouted "OBJECTION!" during the middle of the sermon. Just as I was turning around to wink at her, I remembered that it was perfectly acceptable to lie on the stand in the house of God. I'm not sure if she was impressed or not, but she did give me her business card as I was being dragged out.…

Bad parenting

Ok, I am sorry if this is stupid blog post, but when I have been to parenting groups in the past, or gone on the taxi and asked if I baptised my children, I say no, then every single time they call me a bad parent.

 

I want to know what i so bad about being a parent that wants her children to grow up and then make their own choices. I do tell my kids that I do not believe in god, I hate the…
