I had a great time at the Pittsburgh DoubleTree Hotel tonight. I met a bunch of great people and had a lot of great conversations.
I met too many people to name them all, but I would like to mention that I got to meet Bill and Suzy. They produce a podcast called Bar Room Atheist which I will be checking out very soon. I spoke mostly with Bill. He used to be a sheriff (I think), and he also studied 'the' Bible to become a better Christian.

One of my sons asked me if I was a nonbeliever and of course I asked, "a nonbeliever in what?" I was not trying to be flippant, but there are…Continue

19 year old Tunisian Amina Tyler, posted a topless photographs of herself on an International Feminist Activist Group FEMEN which had the slogan “my body belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone's honour” as a sign of protest for the freedom and rights of women in Tunisia, which itself is in a struggle for a survival of its own freedom.
This has already caught the attention of Islamist cleric Adel Almi, president of Al-Jamia Al-Li-Wassatia Tawia Wal-Islah, there in Tunisia, who…Continue
I often wonder what it would be like if every church service ended with a question and answer session. I was invited to church one particular Sunday. The pastor knew I was an Atheist and had prepared a sermon that thought would strike a cord with my scientific mind. It was on Joshua 10:12-13 and how NASA scientists discovered a missing day. I so much wanted to ask him questions right then and there during the sermon. I produced hundreds of pages of material showing that showed this was…Continue
For friends, family, and fellow freethinkers you may ask why I’m not a Christian. I submit some random rambling thoughts. I'm neither a writer nor an English major, so forgive me for which you're about to read. I’d rather tell you why I’m not religious, as that should answer more effectively the question at hand.…Continue
I just finished reading The Answer is Never Magic by Robert S. Porter and found it interesting. It is written as a continual conversation between an atheist and a variety of theists that seeks to examine subjects like faith, forgiveness and punishment by a forgiving God.…Continue
I was listening to the Godless Bitches podcast.
Should Atheists support other problems with religion and humanity besides just the lack of proof for god?
In my opinion every Atheist should at least think about being tolerant of everything that the churches exclude. L.B.G.T. woman's rights civil rights pollution etc. Or they have not fully thought out why they are atheists in the first place,yet. Being so…Continue

It's a wonderful thing. Freedom. Freedom of ideas, of love and hate. Freedom to feel remorse, regret. I was told I was free, before. Before my decision to forsake religion. But faith captured my liberation, chain by chain, lie by lie. I am newly, truly liberated from the bonds of former dominative masters. It isn't remorse or shame or regret I feel the most right now. It is pity that strikes the deepest. I pity the lies I pilfered as the good steward. I pity the council I offered…Continue

I'll be attending the NDOR events in Raleigh, NC with some of my friends from our local Coalition of Reason group in the Piedmont Triad, NC. Greta Christina, Dan Barker, Todd Stiefel and more will be there.
For any reading this who feel that they are the "only non-believer I know", they should check to see what events will be taking place in their home towns, or…
This week is an extra-long treat, with the best bad calls to the Atheist Experience, which can be viewed or listened to at http://www.atheist-experience.com/ . I recommend listening on Ustream or Blip TV live. They've got quite a following on Youtube though, and one could watch clips from several years of shows for hours on end. And I've done…Continue
I was apparently, at least to the casual observer, Raptured over the weekend. The casual observer in this case was my Significant Other. Having gotten up briskly instead of lying around in a sprawled stupor like she was, I decided to go hiking in the local mountains after completing my computing chores. This meant I needed to change shorts, and I left the first pair on in her pink leather office chair, draping them over the seat in a manner that suggested, to a certain…Continue
