On Spiritual Humanism (or religion based on reason)

For the first time since jumping off the fence I have been tempted... at www.spiritualhumanism.org apparently you can be ordained as a member of the Spiritual Humanist clergy with only one requisite, agreeing to the following statement Religion must be based on Reason.



Spiritual Humanism defines itself as a religion based on the ability of human beings to solve the problems of society using logic and science. Furthermore, the site goes on to explain how Spiritual Humanism… Continue

Just what does the VP do?

She doesn't know either!

Where knowledge ends, religion begins.

I'm terribly sick of the religious "oppressed minority" complaining about the fact that their beliefs are under cultural assault. First of all, they're not under assault at all: this country is overwhelmingly Christian, and the right-wing "moral majority" has shown an impressive lack of morals in their total takeover of every branch of the federal government. Second, they should be under assault; they're archaic. Look that word up before you attempt to debate that fact. But that's not what this… Continue

Fatalist

Though we later may walk

In a valley in a shadow of death

What should we logically fear?

Perhaps the complacent urge for a deity

To make us whole and guide us through

To fulfil an image that is cloudy at best



Where was the help previously

When appeals went unheard?

Huge effort expended in devotion

For nothing in return

Grimly clinging, predetermined

To prop up an image that is cloudy at best

Resigned rigid, predetermined

To… Continue

PaRaDoX

In trying to identify what we believe, and the possible limits to the This Paradox of Perception can and will exposes the confusion of understanding the term's consciousness, perception, and unconscious, with lucidity, reality, and awareness. Now we will look at how this misunderstanding imbeds a false sense of certainty of what is and is not real. In other words we have our current view of what is that we compare with our perfect view of how it should be, or could have been. We deal with… Continue

Palin babbles; Iraq war a "task from god"

Palin speaking before her church (assembly of god church; IE dominionists) proclaiming the Alaska pipeline as "gods work" and the war in Iraq as "task from god".



90% of this is 'woo' and, honestly I find it a little boring but I don't think we need politicians in any seat of power thinking that war is tasked by… Continue

Creationists in Canada

Though it may not have the profile or scope here that it has in the U.S., the tension between a Bible-based understanding of the origins of creation and the science of evolution evidently does not stop at the border. That positions are not as clearly (or stridently) articulated in Canada as they are in the U.S. may only reflect our national distaste for confrontation.


--->Where's Darwin? From… Continue

Synchronize blogs

Does anyone know if there is a way to automatically post to different blogs, I have a blogger account that I really like, I especially like the "blog via email" function, I mostly post by sending an email to the special blogger address, I rarely use the webinterface to post, if there was a way to do that for the blog on this site I could post to all blogs in one quick go, if anyone has any ideas

Chrome

Posting this with Google's new browser Chrome.
Looks really clean but I have so many useful add-ons in Firefox that I use all the time I do not think I'll be switching.
The one thing I'd really like to see in Firefox is the tearing away of tabs into their own window, that is just so awesome and useful.

Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid.

Despite the fact that McCain just demonstrated that he's losing his faculties when he appointed Ms. Palin as his VP, I still think that he could win, stroke out, and we'd be stuck with her as our president.

I'm skeered. Hold me ...

Nilknarf Daily Haiku

The storms will roll in,

we stand naked before them;

powerless, fearful.




Got to sleep at 02:00 last night, got up at 06:00.



Damned naps. I love 'em!



It was a good day, nonetheless.



I'm going to get my legs fixed tomorrow!



Lynn, the radiologist's nurse, is going to call me at 07:30 to tell me if it's gonna be 10:00 or 13:00, it's most likely to be… Continue

"It worries me that this technology is out of control in so many ways," said Charles Margulis, a spokesman with the Center for Environmental Health. The possibility of offspring being in the food supply "is just another element of that," he…

Know of any medical charities that work in Congo?

Hi all,



The people over at the Lola ya Bonobo Sanctuary in Congo have been approached by the family of a little 7 year old named Amazone. She has a Huge head tumor. the tumor covers a large part of her right side of the face. I doubt she has any eye function on that side. Please ask around to see if anyone knows some way to help, and give all information to the people over there. Or here and I'll post… Continue

Colbert's 8 Best Atheist Moments

'm pretty conflicted about religion. On the one hand, I'm a huge fan of abortion. I like performing them, getting them, watching them, you name it. Then again, I think Communion wafers are delicious. But there are plenty of people who aren't wishy-washy at all about their godlessness. The Colbert Report featured an atheist lobbyist on Friday in the latest in a long line of segments exploring secularism. Here's that interview, followed by seven other classic heathenish clips from the… Continue

2008 AAI Convention

So, I've decided to make the trip to Long Beach in September and attend the Atheist Alliance Convention. I'm hoping to meet some new people there. I already know Margaret Downey, who I used to work for when she was president of the Freethought Society of Greater Philadelphia. I also know a few other people I know will be there.



I was at the convention last year outside of DC. Here's a picture with me (on the left) with some members and supporters of… Continue

Campbell Brown grills McCain spokesperson; reduces to blubbering fool

Watch as McCaininite Tucker Bounds gets put against the ropes trying to defend Palin's qualifications. His "I know you are but what am I" style responses are expected (throwing the entire question aside to attack Obama) but then tries to claim that Palin has military command experience, making her perfect for the role of defacto commander in cheif!



Apparently her "command" of the Alaska National Guard makes her totally qualified to be president should need… Continue

I Have Returned

This post is nothing more than a note to say I've returned. I've been back a couple of days, actually, but classes have officially started as well and that's been keeping me busy.



The King's College expedition was a success--while I was sure I'd have to find what I needed, to be honest, it was a bit of a crap shoot. However, out of 69 letters, I narrowed it down to 2 plus a few notes that were exactly what I was looking for (*relief*). It took me two days to read two letters, his… Continue
