Homosexuality

I've got a good debate going on my blog, www.createcognitivedissonance.wordpress.com, regarding Homosexuality and Prop 8. I've had a New Church minister attempt to defend his position on homosexuality, and the comment lines have been full of a very lively back & forth. Check it out!

Tray Tables Up! Flights of nonsense landing in Texas schools

texflag32988 The next act in the long and ugly creationist end-game will take place in Texas. After the previous two acts, my confidence is high.



One of my dearest hopes for the next generation is that they get a real shot at understanding evolution. My own teenage understanding of the theory was fuzzy around the edges, since we touched on it for all of about eight minutes in high school. I didn't encounter it again until Anthro 1 at Berkeley--at which point it dazzled me so much I… Continue

I am looking for someone to go to see Religulous and some fun discussion about Religulous afterwards tonight.

Anyone live in the bay area looking for someone to go to the show with. I can't take my friends to see this because everyone I know is religious. I feel like an island.

Kill my blog? No!

Its been a while sense I posted anything so why not start by defending blogging.

I read an article in Weird called "Kill Your Blog". (You can read it here (it has a different name which made it hard to find)) His arguments are that that blogging has been flooded by "Cut-rate" journalists, underground marketing campaigns that are "drowning out the authentic voices of amateur wordsmiths" its hard to get readers,… Continue

Faith and Society

Faith of the arrogant

Where is the arrogance in

Judging the world owes me no deference

Accepting the earth, sea and sky stand in indifference

Seeing no grand schemer fixated on my every move

Believing ones only support comes from within

Expecting nothing because nothing is owed, giving nothing when nothing is earned

Doing what's right without need or assumption of external approval

Exchanging with equals to fill needs

Being honestly, always and… Continue

And there are those times...

that you need to sit and think;

stop your life and think.



It really feels weird to be writing this.



And scary, definitely.



I'm going to be on hiatus for a coupla weeks.



I will be reading e-mail, and following the journals that I always follow, but after thinking about yesterdays' entry, I'm going to break the news habit, and the writing habit...… Continue

I think I just feel more comfortable here.

Now to be perfectly honest I have 2 other blogs. I have my live journal, mostly because my brother does and he's in Korea. I also have my myspace blog...which is my main blog. I don't think I really feel comfortable there anymore. One of my "friends" recently told my husband he had "loose morals" because he didn't have jesus in his life. I feel more comfortable here. I'm kind of excited to see what other atheists might say about my views without being attacked for my lack of faith.

Why do we think religion is necessary, again?

When it's used to justify setting an eleven-year-old girl on fire, it's probably time for all of us to rethink the "respect" we give to religion, to its practitioners, and particularly to leaders who endorse extremism in its name.

Kill ’em all and let their gods sort ’ em out.

Religious

Just got back from seeing "Religious" with the The Palm Springs Atheists. What a wonderful, thought provoking movie, I highly recommend it to all who question religion!

And the lady wins.

yes, The lady always wins.

Damn! it's only right.



And here I thought that I had gotten over dental anxiety... I should have taken a pill.



The dentist didn't really hurt me that much, but I had a lot of anesthetic injected.



It's the psychological pain that I wasn't prepared for, I guess.

Slow to get going

Well I was hoping to spend some time getting some thoughts down here and with the various groups and of course time has gotten away from me. Fall is a very busy time here where I work. We are in the agricultural field and so business is tied closely to the seasons. I was also planning a little project to act as a kind of framework for posts, but that has also been slow as I was trying to contact some people about it. Oh well. But I have been taking some notes and listening to podcasts and have… Continue

Blogging

Not sure how I'm going to use this blog feature. I suspect that it'll just be too hard to do my main blog and keep this one up to date as well, but I'll have a bash.

In the meantime, my main blog is here: Dikkii's Diatribe

And we'll see if that's that.

Jazz music, I love...

I just wish that I could do it,

Heh, you thought yesterdays' entry was short and non-informative, todays' is more so.



And no fancy shit like spell-chesking, either.



Verrrrrrry crummy night... bowel problems, 'nuff said.



Lana was not feeling well today either... allergies.



I started feeling better in the afternoon, and… Continue

Mercy Ministries and False DMCA claims

It seems Mercy Ministries itself started a Youtube account precisely so it could retrospectively back up its false DMCA claims( ok this is speculative but Mercy watchers have been on the ball so far).

The wise and all powerful Thunderfoot has commented on their silly attempts here

How do the young ones say?

EPIC FAIL Mercy Ministries

I encourage you all to make a comment

Try for quiet

My brain doesn't work very well without certain amounts of quiet and solitude. As a SAHM, I do not frequently get time to take away from family responsibilities. The only time that I really get an opportunity to think without interruption is when I go swimming.



I haven't been able to go for a while because of an ankle injury I managed to inflict on myself while gardening this summer. Yeah, gardening. Shovel+border removal = fall down go crunch OW ow Ow that fucking hurts! I don't… Continue

Hard to say much about today... it was very cool this morning, but sunny and exceedingly atumnal this afternoon.



I got up realatively early, went to Walgreens to pick up drugs and then picked up/cleaned the house a little, did a little laundry.



Lana came over about 18:00 and we had some chili and watched a… Continue

15 words that certainly should never be used by free thinkers

There are certain words that should be avoided by atheists, rationalists and free thinkers in their writings and conversations. They can, however, be frequently found in the writings of theists, the irrational and those who prefer not to think. (Yes, the headline was meant to be ironic and sarcastic.)



This isn’t meant to be an exhaustive list. I’m simply suggesting the most common words I encounter in religious and philosophical discussions. They reflect a certainty about reality… Continue

Student accuses teacher of being a witch and tries to set her on fire

More reason to get rid of religion:



A 20-year-old man by the name of Darin Najor of Ferndaleis is facing an assault charge after allegedly accusing his English literature teacher of being a witch and then pouring liquid on her. The man also threatened the teacher with a cigarette lighter and cigarette.



There is no doubt that this guy is insane, or I should say "out-sane"; however, his insanity is not isolated, but, in my view, comes from a deep sense of religious… Continue

My Prosecution Will Bring About The End Of The World Says "Self-Proclaimed Messiah"

More reason to get rid of religion:



A self-proclaimed messiah is accused of molesting children whom he says he was only "healing".

According to the news report the Self-proclaimed messiah, whose name is Wayne Bent 'is awaiting trial in Union County after he was accused of lying naked with underage nude girls. One of them says Bent kissed her on the lips and breasts. Bent says the encounter was a religious experience, not a sexual one'. Really!!

Holy Mary, Mother Of God, Pray For Our Siners Now

A Roman Catholic woman name Gianna Sullivan claimed to have be been in contact with the Virgin Mary, who gave her messages to dis pus to the world. According to Gianna's Foundation, "The Foundation Of The Sorrowful And Immaculate Heart Of Mary", 'Since beginning in July, 1988, Gianna has received the weekly public MESSAGES to the world from Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary; and these MESSAGES have been recorded in all 6 volumes of I am your… Continue
