Irish Limerick

The altar boy the altar boy
The dirty little beast
He filled his ass with broken glass
And circumcised the priest

Tending the Epicurean Garden

My new book Tending the Epicurean Garden is now live on amazon. I am very thrilled that, after the many months of hard work that went into the book, I'm finally able to take others on this adventure with me to discover Epicureanism on its own terms.

There are sources on Epicureanism, but many are indirect and some are hostile. It's important for us in the Epicurean movement that…

Evaluating Threat

This is an incomplete thought experiment. It should go without saying that it isn't rigorous or backed up by anything except 'common sense', whatever that is. In this post I'll examine a scenario by changing variables individually in series. Is there an alternate interpretation of the scenario? Are there variables I haven't considered? …

Glad to be aboard.

I'm very new here, and haven't had a chance to read much of what's been posted. I briefly skimmed over a post talking about closer atheists. This, I understand. I grew up in a baptist family. I did believe as a child, but as I grew older my rationality showed me that it's all false. I continue to remain a closet atheist as far as they are concerned, but nowhere else. I probably drive religious people nuts on Facebook. I get tired of seeing all their religious posts. So I'll go on tangents of… Continue

OH MY!!!!! And I mean.. OH MY!!

So my girlfriend is studying to become a lay minister within her Church. I even helped her pay for a class.  She knows I’m an atheist and is fine with that. And I’m fine with the fact she is a Christian.

Well, during the class someone mentioned, yes..you know how…ATHESISTS….

Ya know what the instructor told the class.

Atheists tend to have and behave more “Christian” then the Christians.

That took a lot of people aback.

Kinds throws a different like on…

Atheist Inside & Out

Our problems as atheists isn't the superstitious. It's the atheist in the closet. Our true colors, our true numbers are not known as many atheist are in the closet. There are atheist who even attend Church to blend in for family, friends, co-workers and society at large. We'll never gain respect and dignity as long as so many atheist cower, conform & comply with the reigning superstition. 

The Black community gained political power when they stopped cowering, conforming and…

Pink: Exclusively for girls

Recently I started work at a footwear store at a shopping centre. Most people come to look at shoes for kids, since it's summer and the footwear I sell is well-known to be comfortable and resiliant, easy to clean etc. To date there have been 9 occasions, when the following happens: Mother comes in with her son, generally 1-5yo, and proceeds to look at the merchandise. By this time the boy has had a quick look and has set his sights on a pink pair of kids' shoes. He insists he likes this, but…

My daughter's world

After ruminating on this issue for several months I'm openly declaring that for my own sake, for the sake of my daughter(s), nieces, and females everywhere I will no longer hinder women by being silent regarding harmful aspects of feminism. The women that I love and respect deserve better. It is education that changes the world, therefore:

I will teach my daughter about sex privilege. Both sexes have accepted via tradition…

On the Origins of Consumerism

"In the 1930s, Paul Mazure, a leading Wall Street banker working for Lehman Brothers, wrote: 'We must shift America from a needs, to a desires culture. People must be trained to desire, to want new things even before the old had been entirely consumed. We must shape a new mentality in America. Man's desires must overshadow his needs.'" 

(from the BBC film Century of the Self)



"By the 1950s, consumerism was thoroughly interwoven in the fabric of…

God sets an example for his followers, who will destroy his enemies, their offspring, humankind.

Imagine yourself sitting in a church service and hear the reading: 

"I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.... The enemies have vanished in everlasting ruins; their cities you have rooted out; the very memory of them has perished.... The LORD will swallow [up his enemies] in his wrath, and fire will consume them. [He] will destroy their offspring from the earth ... their children from ... humankind." (Psalms 9:2, 6, and 21:9-10)"

The reader says, 'The Word of…
