I couldn't sleep so...

I visited this webpage for shits and giggles http://www.christianforums.net/f19/

It is people listing their prayer requests. I felt like a voyeur going through some of it, but I sure had a few laughs.

Florida Regional Atheist Meetup

Its been 2 days since the RAM ended, and I must say, it was awesome! This was the first group meeting of like minded people I have been to since I realized I was an atheist 10 years ago. The people I met and the subjects we talked about were great. I feel like a buffoon for not doing this sooner. I want to thank all the speakers that were there; Brian Dalton, Brother Richard, The Amazing Randi, Dave Silverman, Blair Scott and all the rest. I never put much thought into the "community" aspect…

homosexuality biological or psychological

The fact is that if you put 100 men and 100 women on one deserted island

And 200 homosexual (men) on a second deserted island

And 200 lesbians (women) on a third deserted island, and show up in 200 years

You will find on deserted island one children and grand children.

On deserted island two you will find the remains of the 200 homosexual and on deserted island three you will find the same, the remains of the 200 lesbians.

 

From that, taking away…

Computer says......."NO!"

The following post is an excerpt from my latest main blog:

 

I have always thought that the brain is somewhat like the central processing unit of a computer and as such it needs regular maintenance and care. To protect the CPU it is essential that a decent firewall is in residency, this will provide a safeguard from external input intent on corrupting the processor.

Reason is the firewall that shields the human brain from such dangers. The problem is that any input can…

Will There Be A Coverup?

I have seen nothing on the news about the psychological history of the latest VT shooter.  It makes me wonder if we ever will.  I understand there is a lot of suffering going on and I do respect the privacy of the people who are victims of this horrific tragedy.  I am just wondering what motivated this killing.  My motivation to learn more is to see how this campus is targeted once again.   My suspicion is that the shooter was bullied or felt some kind of injustice.  Was there a violence…

Where do they come with this stuff?

I was at Barnes & Noble today and a book in the "Christianity" section caught my eye (they put the Atheist and scientific literature in "Social Sciences", which is loscated suspiciously close to the "Christianity" section).  It's called "Prepare for War" by Dr. Rebecca Brown.  I read the back cover and it's all about combating satan's influence by being aware of his "doorways" such as yoga, role-playing games, and meditation.  I shit you not.

I put the book back on the shelf,…

Season't Grettings, feel free to share with Christians

Season's Greetings, by Darrel Ray

In this holiday season, when the "War on Christmas" is so loudly proclaimed, we should all reflect on the history of Christmas in the US and recall that the Puritans outlawed Christmas. They rightly argued that virtually all of the traditions and artifacts, even the date of Christmas were all taken from the Pagans by the Papists (Catholics) and therefore should not be used or celebrated by Christians.…

God On Trial ... and the Unchallenged Assumption

The first faulty assumption is the seed from which an uncounted number of equally questionable subsequent assumptions may come.  It may be a hypothesis without basis, a personal experience assumed to be universal, or the result of a misuse of logic, but once that false seed is taken as fact, the results can vary all over the map, with reliability about as secure as the proverbial snowball in hell.



I have just finished watching God On Trial, a dramatization of a trial,…

Have you seen the Atheist Nexus Member Map?

You can hover over Members at the top of the page and the last one on the list is Member Map.

I have only 10 minutes experience with it and its great except for two things.

1) If you do not feel like publishing where you live, you can look at the member map, but don't add yourself to it. You have to manually add yourself to it.

2)I have a high-speed internet connection and the webpage was still bit slow.

Check it out!!!!

Before it was a Christmas Tree

The Roman Catholic Church and Christians co-opted the Winter Solstice and successfully transformed it into popular culture’s Christmas. It is pretense and fallacy that it is the birthday of Jesus. Winter Solstice is the annual celebration of the Unconquered Sun, Dies Natalis Invicti Solis - a relic of sun worship.

The Winter Solstice is an ancient holiday, which heralds the symbolic rebirth of the Sun, the return of longer days, and the natural New Year. Through the millennia, our…

My beef with philosophers

I was reading the webpage "50 top atheists in the world today" (found here: http://www.thebestschools.org/blog/2011/12/01/50-top-atheists-in-the-world-today/ ).

I came across a name that is unfamiliar to me: Ophelia Benson (born c. 1948).

Reading about her led me to TPM - the philosophers' magazine which, in turn, led me to the…

It's a machine! A literal theory of the tv show Lost.

This may seem a bit late, but it's something I actually wrote back on 5/31/2010, shortly after the show ended. I'd posted it to another site at that time.

First, a few observations.



At the vending machine with Sawyer, Juliet said you can unplug it, then plug it back in, and technically it's legal. The candy bar next to the Apollo bar was called an Avalon bar.



Jack's appendix scar is more interesting than I first realized. It first appears as an out of place…

Andreas Hamza Tzorzis another unimportant person deleted on wikipedia

Hamza .. the "international public speaker" of the "islamic education and research academy" (already two jokes in one sentence) was a guy who tried to educate PZ Myers on embryology (three and counting) and the quran's superior knowledge about the topic 1400 years ago. 



I was shocked to see that he had a page entry in wikipedia. But…

Hitchens death will be used by adhernts to convert more followers.

Let me begin by saying these fools speak as if they have some sort of special knowledge. The only thing they possess is being alive after Christopher Hitchens died. I find their bold faced arrogance immoral and distasteful.

These quotes are from The Christian Post. …

Divide and Conquer

From Christopher's book "Arguably" I found a line by Adams that I had to blog about. In this book, Christopher writes about our American founding fathers and what they really believed or did not believe. In it there are examples of how it was seen advantageous to divide and conquer using sectarian strife. It still works today.

Here is a line from Adams about Jefferson's supporters with a twist.

"Let us have an Atheist or a Deist (as President) or anything rather than an…
