Fred died tonight.
We rescued him from a family that was calling him Bocephus...Hank Williams Jr...of course, we took one look at him and said there is no way this bassett hound....this big lumbering short legged hound dog with ears that hadn't gotten the memo yet and were still long enough to stir the dust and waft the scent up to that CSI Superfly Noze of his. You see, bassetts are according to legend bred from full sized blue tic hound with a Dachsund or some dog with short legs.…Continue

Another Christian Mingle had has the headline Jesus the Christ is 'Lord'. Well, I don't think so, Jesus the Christ is not 'lord' to me. He is not 'lord' to many other people. I don't believe he was real but I do believe there was a Yeshua but he was no 'lord' if you want my personal opinion. You can browse profiles from Christian persons who are currently not in a relationship but as I said on this subject before I thought living a life of loneliness and repression was a good and…Continue

I find it appalling that children raised in fundamentalist evangelical Christian homes in particular are expected to be evangelists for the religion. Remember that Rachel Elhardt girl from the award-winning documentary " Jesus Camp" who handed out Jack Chick tracts to customers at the bowling alley? Marjoe Gortner famed child preacher extraordinare who is actually a lifelong atheist forced to preach the beliefs of the evangelical Christian fundamentalist movement to gullible adults while…Continue
I remember when I lived in NYC there was a friend of mine who said her neighbor's oldest daughter for so many years emotionally and physically abused , was and still is constantly referring to her little mentally- disabled brother who has autism and down-syndrome as a 'retard' and always saying that she hated him. They were not religious that I heard of but the older sister, as told to me by my friend said was constantly calling her brother 'retarded' and always saying she hated him from…Continue
An ex-friend wrote this in his blog. Do you think he comforted this girl? What real answers does he give her?

Thinking About Gay Stuff.
It's 5:03 in the morning.
I was just laying in bed, about to sleep and feeling tired finally after a nights work and mental stimulation. I was comfortable and I was ready to sleep. However, I couldn't stop thinking about a conversation that I had with someone while at work…Continue
I'm done. I quit. I give up. Besides, it's too late. It's hopeless, despite the "springs eternal" cliche.
After 13 years of being a bachelor, living the solitary life and all, I thought I'd try a couple of dating services. They all sound so promising. They lure you in with the "it's free to join" hook. But if, just if, someone bites (or you bite), they make you pay.
After you pay and contact someone, it never pans out. In my experience, the women write promising--almost…Continue
The KKK and Neo-Nazis hate groups are prejudiced towards people of color, Jews, lgbt individuals and same-sex couples , interracial couples whether heterosexual , gay or lesbian, foreign immigrants, liberals, Democrats, feminists too ,I think, Catholics and all non-Christians as well, possibly.
The hate , prejudice , discrimination and violence has religious connections within these two hate groups but the religious aspect seems to fly over people's heads. I have always wondered why…Continue

There is a branch of psychotherapy called “Logotherapy” , which deals with meaning of life. I wish to condense several volumes of its literature into this post, for the benefit of those who are unaware of this. I have adapted the model to suit the requirements of Secular Humanists for a meaningful life, who happen to be people without the…Continue

The evangelical and Pentecostal movements are probably two of the most successful fundamentalist Christian movements in the past 60 or so years. Not all evangelicals or Pentecostals are fundamentalist of course but most tend to be. I attended a Pentecostal church once, they were fundamentalist. Were they evangelical? Not particularly. It was fire-and-brimstone though. These two movements are closely intertwined but not all evangelicals are Pentecostal and not all Pentecostals are…Continue

Dear Friends: my piece on Epicureanism is live at thenewhumanism.org webpage. This is a publication tied to the humanist chaplaincy and humanist organizations at Harvard University and I'm hoping it will increase the visibility of Epicureanism among mainstream humanists as a viable alternative and as a practice. Please comment on it and please share!…Continue

I was contacted by www.askimo.com , a new internet portal featuring video interviews of experts talking on their field of expertise. I decided that my field of expertise would be “what the Torah really says” (since I am one of the few laypeople who has actually bothered to find out), along with related questions about atheism, blasphemy and the “clear alternative to the Torah” (It's SCIENCE!).
The questions were partly supplied by me, generally…Continue

This is a very good question. Unfortunately, it isn’t very easy to answer. There are perhaps as many reasons for being an atheist as there are atheists. What I mean by this is that the road to atheism tends to be very personal and individual, based upon the specific circumstances of a person’s life, experiences, and attitudes.…Continue
What are is your take on the tragedy that occurred in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993, with three young boys being found brutally mutdered in a 'satanic' ritual and the three socially akward teenagers who were falsely accused of comitting this atrocious crime by their fellow fundamentalist Christian townfolk who wanted nothing more than to see them dead?
This gruesome tale is a modern-day warning almost of the life-changing consequences of being an outcast in a conservative…Continue
