Coming Out To Family

I recently got back into Irvine after a trip up through a large swath of NorCal to visit friends and family. I really have two sets of family up there; one is my "older brother" (met many moons ago through the Big Brother/Little Brother program) with his family in the Bay Area and the other is the group of actual genetic family in the Sacramento area.



I've mentioned being an Atheist and being a member of Atheists, Agnostics, and Rationalists at UC Irvine to my brother and his family,… Continue

The Nexus Mystery Theater

Tonight's mystery?



The appearance of little green dots on many, not all, of the images in the sidebar popup chat area.



They aren't on friends of mine. Are these people being marked for some sinister plan? Have they been chosen, anointed? Does the dot mean, "this person has money"? Nope, can't be. I notice my own pic has a green dot on it.



Feel free to add your own favorite delusional and/or paranoid fantasy here as a comment. Or you can be a total downer… Continue

I don't know what to do with myself...

I really don't...



I'm so smitten by this girl...she's just too much for me.



I love Kelly.



I love her so...so very much, and she loves me too. It's really more intense than any romance I've ever had in my life, and it's something I don't want to ever give up.



I don't really care if this blog isn't about atheism, or social issues; it's my blog, so I'll do whatever the hell I want with it, damnit.



There's just...such an electrical charge… Continue

And now for ... The Invocation!

Wow, this is the first blog I've ever done!





Toastmasters



“And now.... for... The Invocation!”



Rats. And while the heads bow, mine remains tall, and while the eyes close, mine roam the room for another who may reject the nonsense as I do; some common soul. But as is often the case, either there are none or they aren’t brave enough to de-cloak. I’ve done this “look around” lots of times.



And then the Pledge of Allegiance. Usually, when… Continue

A Blog?

There's a blog on here? This is quite like myspace, isn't it? Only less moronic. Hmm.

Looking for Photos

Do you support the OUT Campaign? Have you ever purchased one of those spiffy scarlet 'A' t-shirts?



I'm currently putting together a brochure for the OUT Campaign and I'm looking for pictures of atheists sporting their 'A' t-shirts to include. If you've got any of yourself or your friends, please send them my way, and you… Continue

The PZ Effect

Well, apparently when PZ Myers came to Atheist Nexus so did several hundred of us minions. I'm not quite sure how I feel about being a minion, I mean, what should I expect AS a minion? Are there benefits? Free sex? Virtual settings like these are always fun the first day or so, but what about next week, or the week after?

Last thing of this sort I joined was Verve Earth, which was cool, you get to see where other bloggers are around the world much llike a google earth format, but you have… Continue

More on me

I suppose I'll put a little more about myself here in case anyone is interested. I've pretty much summed up why I'm here in my "About Me" section, but that doesn't really capture me and what I'm about. I'm not so much a fan of defining my self by what I'm not; I'd rather define myself by what I am.



I was born and raised in a small town in south Alabama called Opp, a city best known for it's annual rattlesnake rodeo. That is exactly what it sounds like. A bunch of rednecks playing… Continue

Pharyngulean Minions

They're here and they're flooding the Nexus! :P

Jeebus! 300 members in like what? 4 hours?

I mean, look at this, they've got the newest group and it's already heavily populated.

Jesus my Savior

This morning, as I was walking home, at the far end of the street the most amazing cloud of smog I've ever seen caught my attention. It didn't rise and dissolve itself in the atmosphere but instead seemed to be revolving madly upon itself, as if it were inside an invisible giant blender. Curiosity piqued, I kept walking towards it, thoughts absorbed in examining the details of this bizarre atmospheric phenomenon.



The cloud was just a few feet above the ground but it was far too small… Continue

Paying for friends?

A few days ago I received an eVite for a "Passion Party," the latest in a seemingly endless number of home-based businesses encouraging suburban women to push crap on their friends, relatives and co-workers. Despite the genteel name, this one sells sex toys and similarly louche items in the context of "gals getting together for a night of sex talk and shopping." I can't remember the last time one of my friends dropped me a line to say, "Want to get together for drinks sometime?" I can, however,… Continue

Dee Plane! Dee Plane!!

Tomorrow I head out to get a new tattoo. I'm nervous as I haven't gotten a new one in over 7 years and the last one I did get was on my lip. This time, it goes on the back of my hand. I plan to get my gang affiliation tatted on my hands. I know, doesn't sound smart but I'm getting older so I'm not worried about being jumped or anything like that. For me, tats have to tell a story and to get my old affiliations on my hands means that I've done evil with my hands. Obviously the story isn't… Continue

Deleted blog entry?

Last night I wrote a satirical blog entry that got a couple comments on it... seemingly positive, but then one commenter asked me if my post was supposed to be funny. I wrote that no one is supposed to take the post seriously. But now, it seems that my blog entry has been deleted for me. And I haven't been notified about it or warned. If I wrote something inappropriate, I'd really like to know. Has anyone been experiencing deleted blog entries? If this has been done on purpose, then I will be… Continue

New Blog

I think I'm gonna use this as my religious rant blog. I've been using http://apostasist.livejournal.com, but I think I'll find greater readership here, so I'm closing that one down. I'll try to import my old entries somehow (even if one at a time).

Argh, another blog...

I'm really, really bad at keeping blogs. I've moved from blogspot, myspace, back to blogspot and finally now to Wordpress.





I won't be actively blogging here*** but I will make a post whenever I update my Wordpress page.



*** it appears I will be actively blogging here. Told ya' I'm terrible at keeping these things straight. I'll be using my wordpress page for the podcast I'm developing so I'll post updates on that here… Continue

The Wizard of ID

The Wizard of ID



In an article by Scientific American, found here, titled, Bisexual Species: Unorthodox Sex in the Animal Kingdom Homosexual behavior is common in nature, and it plays an important role in survival, we find the story of two penguins named Roy and Silo.

The Discovery Institute, (DI) wrote this article in answer to the above.

They boil it down to the essential propositions;

Proposition #1: Birds do it

Proposition #2: Bees do it

Proposition #3:… Continue

Get some Satisfaction

So after discussions with Brother Richard and general mucking around, we've finally setup the official support channel for the Atheist Nexus. This is going to be dealt over at Get Satisfaction(GSFN) and we're already working on making it more integrated into the site.



You might have noticed the new "Member-Powered Support" widget on the left. I won't… Continue
