A modinha adolescente do ateísmo e o ateísmo por conveniência:

Num fórum de discussão, no Yahoo! Respostas, um debate bastante pertinente foi levantado e quero destacar dois comentários feitos por ateus que me impressionaram pelo nível de realismo e franqueza de suas palavras. http://conservadoresateus.blogspot.com.br/2012/10/a-modinha-adolescente-do-ateismo-e-o.html

The Poem From the Movie The Grey

There's a great little poem that's read in the movie The Grey with actor Liam Neeson.  

It was written by director/writer Joe Carnahan.



--- Into the Fray ---

Once more into the fray

Into the last good fight I'll ever know

Live or die on this day

Live or die on this day

 

For me, it became a special movie when this bit…

Call for Participants: News Story about Nonreligious Community

A national television news magazine is researching a story idea about the rise in the non-religious population in America. We are looking to connect with people who have left religion and are interested in sharing their conversion stories. Particularly, we are interested in speaking with people who have been ostracized or outcast by family and/or friends as a result of their decision. We hope to be able to speak with family members as well about this experience. 

If you or…

“Thirty years ago, they couldn’t force me to come here…”

“…the name Vietnam…arrived…as a summary and combination of everything one had ever learned…about the horrors of war.  There was something profoundly, horribly shocking in the odds and the proportions of the thing.  To all appearances, it seemed as if a military-industrial superpower was employing a terrifying aerial bombardment of steel and explosives and chemicals to subdue a defiant agrarian society.  I had expected the newly-elected Labour government to withhold British…

Do you want to hear something really spooky? This post is my thirty-eighth on this site and it comes in the week when I celebrate my thirty-eighth birthday! Isn’t that weird?  What do you think it might mean?  Hold on, don’t answer, because it gets better! I share my birthday with Dave Grohl, Faye Dunaway, and Richard Briers, which is amazing because, get this, I really like the Foo Fighters, “The Towering Inferno” is one of my favourite films, and I thought Margot was the funniest…

A Better View of the Feud Between Science & Religion

My brother brought me this link from reddit.
http://www.reddit.com/r/HistoricalWhatIf/comments/11oyew/what_if_the_prophet_mohammed_was_never_born/c6odycc

The title is unrelated because this short essay gives facts about the history of conflict between science & religion. A nice vantage to view our current state.

Exorcism In Modern Times

I'm sitting here listening to Tift Merritt...surfer girl out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina in the US of A and one of the best in Country Alternative...voice like Dusty Springfield one review of her work commented. Her "Good Hearted Man" is an anthem for every woman who is tired of dating bad boys and losers and is ready to grow up. If you don't know her work, look it up. I think you'll like her unless you're one of these people who is prejudiced against country music. In that case, to quote…

Their stated purpose is to "bring together secular Americans in each state to influence government officials, legislation, and regulations."

"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlyn, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something

Excerpt from T. H. White's The Once and Future King:



"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlyn, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That is the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for… Continue
