I went to the North Carolina Pride festival again this year and had a good time. One thing that was new this year is that finally an Atheist group was represented! The Raleigh/Durham Atheist meetup had a booth there thanks to one of it's members, Alex. http://atheists.meetup.com/80
I'm a member of the meetup; I was very excited to see the event posting and helped work the booth. We had several people come up and talk to us and none of them were… Continue

This is probably old news to most of you, but Sam Harris wrote an excellent piece for Newsweek: Newsweek.com | When Atheists Attack:
A noted provocateur rips Sarah Palin—and defends elitism
Yeah, it's got a crappy title. Anyway, here are what I would consider to be highlights:
"Here, finally, was a performer who—being maternal, wounded, righteous and sexy—could stride past the frontal cortex of every American… Continue

I think I said it in my profile that I listen to a Lot of podcasts. When your job requires so little thought that you can just put yourself on auto-pilot, why not use that time to get in some education? Every few weeks I go searching the Internet for new podcasts because the ones I have either haven't updated in a while, or I'm ready for a new mind tickle. Yesterday, I did another search and discovered Free Domain Radio hosted by Stephan Molyneux. I think I recognized the voice from a Hellbound… Continue

Prepare thyself, he who reads this, to tremble and quake before the Incredible Word of God, as written by THE LORD HIMSELF!
I was sitting on My Eternal Throne just now, pondering things you cannot possibly fathom when I realized: I am very disappointed in every single human being on Earth.
None of you are perfect in My Eyes. You have all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of Me. Need I remind you that the wages of sin… Continue

I’m aggravated with people (creationists) giving “God” all the credit all the time for everything that they find good, beautiful, and right, in their lives. This man-made “God” gets all of the credit that should go to Nature. People need to respect Nature, the Universe, not God. If people don’t take care of our only known livable planet, it will die, and us along with it. Admit it; there is and will be no God to save us when we have destroyed the planet and all of its resources. I’m sure the… Continue

A few years ago, I took a continuing adult education class on astronomy. I thought it was a real, accredited college class, but no, it wasn't. This was in the days before I was an atheist. If anything, I would have called those months a time when I was a pantheist. I entered the class ready to be bombarded with facts, new discoveries, and difficult tests that would justify complaining to people that I had to study. It wasn't that kind of class. Don't misunderstand me. It was very good for an… Continue

I read to Delaney's first grade class yesterday. She had prepped me for my visit like a military operation, reminding me at least five times of the exact time and S.O.P.
"There's a chair you sit in, and I'll sit right by you," she said. "You have to bring three stories, but don't be sad if we don't get to all three."
I promised to hold it together.
She nodded, then ran upstairs to rummage through her books. Five minutes later she was downstairs,… Continue

An Australian man
has just been arrested in England at the behest of the German government for the crime of propagating Holocaust denial. Now I'm certainly no supporter of that movement, but I very strongly disagree with the concept of criminalising their viewpoints on the same grounds I often repeat - the best way to discredit nutjobs is to let them loudmouth away to their hearts… Continue

Or so it is revealed in the Nashville scene. Scene reporter Caleb Hannan was able to track down a former patient and confidant of Nancy's, Jennifer Wynne, who was witness and part to a cover up of Nancy's long term liaison with Lisa a "cured "lesbian who worked as a nutritionist at Mercy. It seems Nancy was smitten with this woman, buying her expensive gifts (cars and a house). The situation became so obvious that… Continue

ORIGINS: WHO WERE THE FIRST INHABITANTS OF BRITAIN FOLLOWING THE LAST ICE AGE?
This is important because they were hunter-gatherer ancestors who had come north, after the ending of the last Ice Age from refuges and habitats in the Mediterranean region. They were the first peoples to cross the land bridge into Britain.
DNA testing suggests that some were my close ancestors—viz. migrating hunter-gatherers.
On a 12,000 year time-scale my ancestors and many other European… Continue

I just found a page where I have to approve of posters. I thought it was automatic. I've tried to approve of them all, but it doesn't look like it's working. Please be patient with me :)

The campus group I founded at my school (southern polytechnic state university) has been successful. We already have around 25 members. People have warmed up to each other quite nicely. We've applied for affiliation with CFI, and in a week we will know how much funds we will get from the school.

Understanding causality, who can justify condemning believers for believing, since they were after all, shaped, molded, and ultimately conditioned to believe just as non-believers where conditioned to not believe? Yet, we just can’t stand by watching them fritter their lives away being motivated, moved, and ultimately being hijacked by this contagious and dangerous god meme. Why can’t we? Because to survive as a species we need to acknowledge and address reality. We can’t just stand by, because… Continue

It was beyond amazing! Bill Maher does a superb job in asking normally intelligent people (sometimes not so) why they believe in something that so resembles a fairytale.
At many points in the movie Bill Maher leaves his interview subjects speechless on topics on the bible, because the subjects are ignorant.
This was also my first outing with fellow atheists and was amazed at how many people out in my area thought like I did. The whole experience was quite refreshing.
I'm about to… Continue

We are temporary beings subject to the laws of the universe and we are raised and shaped to have the mentality that we can "have it your way" when in reality we cannot. We are determined by a chain of cause and effects, and when things don't go how we think they "ought" to, then we are discontented. Our longing for comfort and survival go so far as to the point we disillusion ourselves to believe there are such things as ghosts\spirits that live on after our physical bodies die, that there is a… Continue
