Thank You Joplin and Springfield!

Thank you to everyone from the Joplin Freethinkers and the Springfield Freethinkers who came out to meetings yesterday. I had a great time at both events and I look forward to seeing all of you (and meeting those of you who didn’t make it out) again soon.

Delicious Painkillers for Cake

Have an enormous sense of wellbeing. Sense of being able to operate brain, however, is considerably less enormous. I think I will have a bath and sleep, and come back when I am a bit more cohnerent.

Phone Call with religious mother

So last night(march 1st), I received a call from my dad and all we talked about was how school was going for me and just life on campus.



He then handed his phone to my mom, who sooner or later asked me if I had been going to church. Mind, you my parents don't know I'm an atheist per say, but I've given them hints that I don't like church (Not getting up to give money during 'offering time'). I'm usually on the phone for about 3-5 minutes with my parents, but this time was… Continue

When faith makes you ill

I just found this post in the online version of one of the larger national newspapers:

I could not find the original research publication - maybe somebody else can help out.

Long time lurker

I never liked joining random communities and usually prefer the stalkerish lurking around. I also never caught the blogger's-bug.

Oh well, here I am: yet another rational computer science major. Yet another white middle class guy. Yet another educated and thus slightly arrogant person. Yet another guy who's afraid of the growing influence of the islamic theocracies in the UN, and western christian 'untouchableness' of religion and deeply religious immigrants in western europe who are not… Continue

Christian Bashing vs. Gay Bashing

Powerful video commentary contrasts anti-christian "bashing" versus actual violent crimes against gays and lesbians.





A right-wing group called the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (not "League") has put together a list called the "Top Ten Instances of Christian Bashing in America, 2008".



The Friendly Atheist has also… Continue

Now that i am typing these words i don't feel good . because i had a quarrel with my mother a few minutes ago.

I rarely watch TV but my mum watches a lot. this noon she told me look this girl(in TV program ) wants to have right of divorce before marriage.(in Islam women can't divorce without their husbands' permission and that TV program wanted to denounce the girl's behaviour!) I replied every woman… Continue

New Music

Just added my latest composition to this page--unfortunately it sounds a bit tinny, due to being a Midi-to-MP3. It was composed in Sibelius 2 for two lutes and piano, and took me about three days-- I was very tired and could only do a bit at a time.



I am currently trying to reduce it to a piano version so I can play it in person. I will try and get a recording up when I do.



The piece is about one of my former LARP characters (a drug-addled teenage boy who eventually went… Continue

First post! Operations and drugs.

For want of a better title. I had a general anaesthetic yesterday and thanks to that and the painkillers I feel like I've been raiding Ozzy Osbourne's cocktail cabinet. So my grammar and style are a bit up the creek, but at least my spelling has improved since yesterday's LiveJournal entry (I spelt fatigue "faguite").



At least I'm not as bad as I was in the Recovery Room- apparently I kept asking the staff about their favourite poems and then quoted a stanza of the Rime of the… Continue

Ensign Rose's Neighborhood.

When I was a kid, I loved Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. I mean I REALLY loved it. I loved it so much that, in one episode, when a man in a music shop snapped at Mr. Rogers, I got about as mad and upset as I've ever been in my life. As an adult, I've come to see how much Mr. Rogers influenced me and other children, and what an amazing person he was.



Now, I work with kids, planning activities and doing programs with children of all ages. Sometimes, when planning a program, I feel kind of… Continue

Miracles or Anti-miracles?

Why do religious people (or any people) consider good conclusions to bad situations to be miracles? Going about daily life on an average scale free of tragedy is not a rare, precious thing. It is the default. The real "miracle", or "anti-miracle", is that such a tragic and terrible thing happened in the first place. The odds are against planes crashing, being held at gunpoint, or being attacked by a shark. Just because one of these life-threatening situations ends in survival does not make it a… Continue

innervated



pull my chord from the wall

at the same time saying you won’t.

shake the trees to sway the sky

as if your motives are elusive or intriguing.

well who's unbound now?

this circuit board, sparked and igniting,

memory-mute and blood-solvent,

my switch is thrown.



gave in then up but not back --

stared-down from the distance

of separate corners in the room

and now expected to… Continue

LEGALIZE POT ON RELIGIOUS GROUNDS

Pardon me if I banter Christians more than the other organized religionists; I’m a product of the Catholic school system from grammar school to Boston College. The other religions are equally as farfetched. It’s just that I’m better acquainted with the doctrines of the church than the conventions and convictions of Judaism or Islam.



I rejected religious ideas at a very early age. The fables were too unbelievable, even to a seven year old: Jonah living in the belly of a whale; Adam… Continue

Blasphemy Day International 2009

Blasphemy Day International is an international campaign seeking to establish September 30th as a national day to promote free speech and stand up in a show of solidarity for the freedom to mock and insult religion without fear of murder, violence, and reprisal. It is the obligation of the world's nations to safeguard dissent and the dissenters, not to side with the brutal interests of thugs who demand "respect" for their beliefs (i.e., immunity to being criticized or mocked or they threaten… Continue

Wow.

I argued against the Virgin birth.

A Muslim guy didn't like what I said about it being impossible for Mary to be a virgin - and told me he hopes I get brain cancer for saying what I said.

Wow, religion REALLY teaches human compassion. It's oh so evident.
