I was on my way back from Home Depot today, and I saw a guy holding a sign that said "Homeless." I'll freely admit that I hardly ever (if never) give money to these people. Sure, it's sad that some of them are very broken down in the realm of hope and motivation. But at the same time, I'm always skeptical over whether or not they are even homeless or just lazy fucks who make their living off a scam.
In any event, the thought of how giving them money is a form of "spreading the… Continue

I know - I'm the last person on Atheist Nexus to see the similarities between Oceania and our current administration:
The Ministry of Love Tortures people just like Guantanamo;
The Ministry of Peace runs the never-ending war that we are always just about to win - just like Iraq;
The Ministry of Plenty controls the diminishing quality of our manufactured products and the crumbling quality of middle-class life;
The Ministry of Truth: What else would you call our… Continue

Yet, these same right wing's conservative Christians put their faith and hopes in going to a place that is undeniable the ultimate welfare state ,called heaven, controlled by a communist… Continue

Well its All Hallows Day and yesterday was All Hallows Eve or Halloween. And I have a bunch of candy left over. Do children trick or treat anymore? Or is it just my neighborhood that they don’t? Its a safe neighborhood and children do live on this street but I only got 1 trick or treater. Dose it have anything to do with modern American parents irrational fears of imaginary threats to there children?
What happened to trick or treating?
I corrected the age group selection on my profile to reflect reality, but it made me think twice about my mental age. It may have been more accurate originally. Still, having both my age and age group separate is redundant. I definitely did not intend to make people think I was still a teenager.
The 2008 Republican Platform lays out the party's ideas of what constitutes a "real family." Unfortunately, many real families don't fall within the Republicans' idea of what a family ought to be, and therefore the Republican party labels these family as a threat to "traditional marriage." Here's an excerpt from the official 2008 Republican Platform regarding this issue:…
My mom sent me this email. I laughed and then sighed.

I have been thinking about the idea of spirituality and its relationship to religion and then my own atheistic outlook. It is something that has actually been bouncing around in my mind because of some reading at the beginning of Godless by Dan Barker as well as some discussions on various podcasts. Well the most recent podcast is the Secular Nation Podcast #20 where David Driscoll is interviewing David E. Comings and the idea of… Continue
The first job I had after high school was the Air Force. I sacked groceries in high school, or as I liked to call it a “packaging specialist”, but my first taste of the “real” job force was the military. One of the things you had hammered into you was total quality. If you saw a problem, you told your supervisor. If that wasn't enough, you went up your chain of command till the problem was resolved. In the Air Force at least, whistle blowers were encouraged. I have taken this job habit with me… Continue
