Being an Ex-Muslim and born of Pakistan, it sure brings with itself a barrage of problems, pressures, ridicule and a lot of threats, especially if you happen to be an atheist and are fighting for your right to be an apostate or stand and oppose religious beliefs.
If you happen to be born in a country that takes Islam as the forefront for law-making, rights and the way of life to be run in that country, then you're most likely stripped away with a great deal of freedom of choice,…
There has been some discussion about the topic of Hell over at Psychology Today recently. (I have a blog there by the way in case anyone's interested!) You might even say it's a hot topic! (Sorry.) Psychologist Nathan Heflick wrote about the psychological aspects of the…Continue
At last, I have achieved my goal!
I recently had a comment exchange on Deviant Art:
http://pjarrett.deviantart.com/ (not a safe site, as my McAfee always reminds me...but they seem to have solved some of their problems...be careful, in spite of its name "Deviant Art" they allow underaged children to post right along with adults! If you're leary of the site...which I can't say I blame you...try my other blog at …Continue
The most evil and diabolical acts typically come from teenagers in an evangelical Christian youth group. Namely, a "Hell House." We get our clips about Hell Houses and five year-olds exposed to "The Shining," from "This American Life."

Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious Universe hunts the elusive Yeti, and I go off on a feminist rant. So shrill. So goddamned shrill.

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
Hre is my 25 min. talk at the convention on The Shame of Believing or Why Do We Act Like Christians? I suggest that we should rethink our sexuality as secular sexuals. Take a look and let me know how this idea feels to you.

First, a rave: I am most grateful for Atheist Nexus. Since effectively rebirthing myself as an atheist (decades ago, I was an agnostic), I've had no place to voice opinions, reactions or thoughts, where others might share them and perhaps further stretch my brain with their reflections. Thank you, A/N.
Now, a rant: There is little if anything more sacred to me, in all the history and legacy of the United States of America, than the Constitution and its Bill of Rights. The most…Continue
Disclaimer: I'm a former Christian who is now an atheist. I have nothing against most theists and respect their beliefs - up to the point where they step on mine. However, even in my Christian days I would've been appalled by the hubris of this plan.Continue

In the United States there is a widespread idea that there is an ongoing "war on Christmas" waged by atheists and in general, people who prefer a secular government in which every person has the same rights. As usual, this idea is proposed by the whiny religious right (mainly conservative Christians).
Sometimes they will…
Somewhere between my curious nature and my desire to interact with my environment, I looked critically at the world. So as a child, when my family went to church, I really had no idea what it was about. I liked the children sermons given at Our Savior's Lutheran Church. It was fun to go in front of the sanctuary and sit with the other kids beside the pastor, since he seemed to be the reason everyone was there.…Continue

Seriously, that the Vatican wouldn’t want to cooperate with investigations regarding sex abuse is no news. But the Wikileaks cables are one of the most concrete pieces of evidence (perhaps the most concrete) that we have about the Vatican’s hypocrisy and how unwilling Ratzinger and his minions are to…Continue

But as I have said before, since non-adherents do not have a dogma we really have no need to meet together or organize. But I have a feeling
that will change as we fight through the courts to return our nation to
the secular nation that it was founded as. People seem to be tiring of
the rules and control of dogma and want to be good peaceful people
living with one another. Helping out where we can and staying out of the
way when we…

Darwinism has long ago been shown to be pure mythology. It's only supporters are the phoney profs that use it as a vehicle for dumbing down the naive student population and applying for federal grants, AND gullible followers. Tell me, when's the…Continue
