So Annoying!

Honestly, I can't believe that being a credible Atheist means that I have to know more about religion than the entire damn congregations and clergies of the local Baptist, Lutheran, and Catholic churches combined. Not that this is a difficult challenge. Of course I'm grateful for the people who put up the Dark Bible, among many websites, to give me the down-and-dirty about the Scriptures, so that when I'm getting proselytized or just having a "rational" discussion about my beliefs, I can cut… Continue

Where all roads lead (2)

[Back to Part 1]

We’d had the conversation before, but this time a new dawning crossed Laney’s face.



“Sweetie, what is it?” I asked.



She began the deep, aching cry that accompanies her saddest realizations, and… Continue

Golly! Why is Obama's Lead so Slim?

Isn't it obvious?

It's because no one in white America wants to vote for a nigger.

Bicycle camping

Well, this is the third day of my bicycle-camping trip. I'm using a F5 Enduro Hi-Racer recumbent with Jandd Mountaineering panniers. The bike is performing really well. I don't have the speedometer on the bike, but a speedtrap I passed by had me clocked at 22mph.



I've been using my old Thermarest camping mattress, but I'm also using a LuxuryLite Backpacker Cot. Wow. The cot is uber-comfy. Combined with the Thermarest, It is actually more comfortable than a lot of beds I have slept… Continue

Nilknarf Daily Haiku

Yes, the sleep will come;

but not when you expect it...

not when you need it.



Dammit, Denver doug has died.



There are many tributes to him online today, and I'll send you to Michael at Bunt Sign, which is the last one that I read.



I don't think that I'll read any more... I don't handle grief that well lately.



Hardly any sleep last night, so this will be short, because I want… Continue

Honour Killing: Child Killed after Converting to Christianity

Honour Killing is generally defined as the murder of a female member of a family by the family, when they (and maybe the wider community) believe her to have brought dishonor upon them. A woman can be targeted commonly for: refusing an arranged marriage, being the victim of a sexual assault, seeking a divorce—even from an abusive husband—or committing adultery. Basically, these killings result from the perception that defense of the "family honor" justifies killing a woman whose behavior… Continue

One is the Loneliest Number

I am what you would call an atheist. I have no belief in any "god" and I am perfectly happy with that. My children are freethinkers, but they are discovering how hard that concept is for others to accept. Can you imagine what it must feel like to have another child tell you emphatically that you are going to burn in hell if you don't "accept Jesus"? Both of my kids have found out exactly that. I bought a couple of books for them to read from Amazon a little while ago, so they could get an idea… Continue

All Hail His Noodly Goodness...with extra cheese

The other day we went to the theatre and saw two people with the Flying Spaghetti Monster on their shirts...funny thing was they weren't even together. I asked them if they could show my son their shirts and they were thrilled. He was hailed as a "fellow Pastafarian", much to his delight. My kids understand the ridiculousness in believing in any gods. Children have not a clue as to the true meanings behind the passages in the bible, no matter how much you drill it into their heads. Children are… Continue

Bill Donohue Hates America

Catholic league president Bill Donohue probably hates you. Unless, of course, you are Bill Donohue.



The Catholic League, despite the name, doesn’t particularly reflect the views of the catholic church in general due to the barking lunacy of this Donohue character. He’s vicious, angry and more or less anti-everything, aside from his own dogma, which makes him a turd in a lot of peoples laundry.



I first became aware of this vacuous chode a while back when he called for the… Continue

Why I'm An Atheist, Not An Agnostic

Stumbling around the web, I came across a page at lukeprog.com titled The Arrogance of Atheism. I almost moved on, but then I saw the subtitle: Why I’m an atheist, not an agnostic. Luke writes a page that is simple and concise, yet totally makes sense. I contacted him and asked him if I could share it with you. He said sure, so here it is in its entirety:



The Arrogance… Continue

Commies vs Christians

I have a lot of problems with China. Their pollution, they're human rights violations, the fact that they hold our purse strings. Overall, China hasn't been doing a whole lot lately to thrill me, and no amount of Olympic Games is going to change that. I can't suddenly respect the host when I come over for dinner and I can clearly see the pancake make-up his wife is wearing to cover up the abuse.



I am also not thrilled with their censorship. It's bad. It's bad in any decent,… Continue

Communion, denied

Reading this right-wing article I was struck with the notion that it only seems that public officials seem to be the only target for this Canon 915.



Link to article: Will Denver Catholic Archbishop finally enforce Canon 915?





So I was wandering, why not the flock. If it were the case to hold back Communion because of somebodies involvement with abortion then why not all the women, and those who supported… Continue

Back in the Forest

Well, I'm back at school.

I finally got all moved in, and am still unpacking. I've got a lot of little things to buy, sadly, so my work never seems to be done. My three roomies and I are getting a lot of things covered and fixed and adjusted, so this should be one hell of a final year.

So, here's to a successful final go.

Cheers.

We'll yeah, that is the standard response to the god-freaks that should shut them up. But...



I've known this guy for years at my local. We've never discussed either religion or politics. Just talk pub crap, like sport.



One day, the discussion strayed into… Continue

Another day... in which I didn't make anything interesting happen.



The evening was different though... I got to spend it with Lana.



Yeah, I'm pretty much smitten.



Callie has been acting strangely lately... won't jump on my lap for petting, but she still sleeps with me, and wants her scritches. She… Continue

how to bomb a job interview

i've got two jobs- one that i've had forever and hate, and one that i've had for several months and love. every now and then i get on this crazy mission to find a newer, better job since the first one (office assistant at a grocery store) can really, really get to me. the one i love- i'm a tech for a vet clinic- pays poorly with poor hours, but i LOVE the job, so i've compromised by keeping my shitty one until i get a raise at the clinic.



anyway, i'll sporadically apply for jobs if i… Continue

Feeble Plug

I must plug The Feeble Lance again. You should know that episode three of his podcast is up and available. If you haven't listened to episodes one and two, you may do so here and here. As much as its happy host would like me to, I can't plug The Feeble Lance every week (we're still in negotiations regarding logo tattoos of the other's site on the necks of our mothers). I am doing so this week because A) I do like his show, and B) I wanted an excuse to also plug his Cafe Press store… Continue

Sheep vs Wolves

It's Monday evening and I've just finished watching Yul Brynner in Invitation to a Gunfighter (I'm on a Yul western kick as of late)--I'm sort of bored, although I have tons to do, I just don't feel like doing any of it at this time of evening. So, I'm clicking random atheist-type links and I wind up on a Modesto Bee headline: Modesto-area Atheists Speak Up, Seek Tolerance.



Nothing particularly mind-blowing about the article--atheists want to be treated with respect...we know that.… Continue
