Is Facebook Changing The Definition of Authentic Friendship?

There is no question that Facebook has changed the way people interact, not to mention how language is interpreted.  Complaints about Facebook's deleterious effect on language are long-standing, of course. In the past, the main gripes have been about how the site has gradually weakened the meaning of the words "friend" and "like." A "friend" has been reduced to any acquaintance you choose to add to your Facebook network -- someone you "friend" (a noun becoming a verb!). Meanwhile, "liking"… Continue

Who Needs Privacy Anyway?

Even a child needs privacy as much as an adult. There are activities in which nearly every child participates that parents may not approve like going to dangerous places, handling harmful items or playing doctor. For a child, these sometimes risky behaviors are nothing more than discovery experiments and as long as nothing goes wrong--harmless.



I attended Catholic School. With the acquisition of God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost, not only did I lose my privacy, I picked up another… Continue

My Way to Atheism

My Way to Atheism



Some people experience becoming atheists as a conversion.    I did not.   I slowly got aware that I never was a real christian.   I was an atheist behaving by imitation, as if I were a christian.   I was baptised, and from their point of view, that made me irreversably a fellow christian.   But of course, that is nonsense.    A handful of water on my forehead as a baby had no impact upon the wiring of my brain.



I had the whole load of christian…

When a plan comes together

So what have you been up to this weekend? A spot of gardening? Went clubbing? Visiting relatives, perhaps? If you’re anything like me you’ve probably tried to do as little as possible, maybe even going so far as to achieving absolutely nothing at all. Well, if that’s the case, and you happened to be in Houston, Texas yesterday, there was something that might well have appealed to you (assuming, of course, that you’re up for achieving fuck all in a really big and pointless way). Around 30,000…

Religion is protection of crimes

             Crime and Punishment or Religion and punishments. 

Punishments by religious fanatics are more cruel that what law treats are crimes. Ironically religion gives protection to crime.  Scriptures also endorse actions that people feel in their dreams or hallucination. Bible talks about Abraham taking his only son to ‘kill’ because God told so in his dream.…

I'm on drugs--REAL drugs. And seeing as it's October, but only the first, I thought I'd make an almost Halloweeny post. Prescription drugs are scary, man.

Why Religion Is Bad For Humans And Other Living Creatures? Part I

The Bible and Koran encourage and condone the worst aspects of human behavior: war, slavery, necrophilia, cruelty to animals, anthropocentrism, suicide, starvation, racism, xenophobia, blind faith, sexism, homophobia, nepotism, denial of reality, self flagellation, dichotomous thinking, torture, human sacrifice, symbolic cannibalism, and other insults to reason. The result has been to distort and pervert the worldview of all who cherish these religious beliefs and have faith in the dictates…

My daughter and I want to go see "The Atheist Experience" live in Austin, TX. I am a huge fan ans was wondering if anyone has been before?  Does anyone know anything about getting into the live studio audience or have any tips concerning the show and the after dinner?

christian propaganda

   Hello fellow free thinkers, I was recently at a local muncipal government health clinic. There on a stand with information purtaining to the clinic, and it's services was a stack of issues from a local, "community monthly publication". The title is: "Changing Times", and evident by the cross accompaning the title, and the content within; this is a christian publication! This clinic is run by the local municipality, which in turn is part of the state's department of health & hospitals,…
