I am quite sure you have been following my works of the free thought library, school plantations, Kasese Humanist Botanical Gardens and the past year major achievement of my school project purchasing its own land.
Plans are under way to mobilize resources to able me build classrooms. I have already put most of the vital materials like bricks, sand, murram and i am yet to get the remaining stuffs. a fundraiser is online to explain all about this and how to achieve…
Some Neurologists Jokingly consider Free Will as Free Won't.
Because of how they now believe Consciousness works.
"The prefrontal cortex is the latest structure to appear in the evolution of the brain, and is the structure that shows the greatest development between humans and our closest biological relatives. Furthermore, it is known to mediate a great deal of the abilities considered distinctly human, such as planning, reflection, and empathy, all of which…
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.…
Recently I came across this interesting research article by Benjamin Libet in Journal of Consciousness Studies (http://www.imprint-academic.com/jcs) captioned "Do we have a Free Will?” Libet, with the help of experiments, shows that our intention to act starts some time before we actually become aware of it. That points towards the fact that humans may not have a…
The Reverend Fred Phelps sent his God Hates Fags.com circus to my school. As expected, there were only three of them, while close to fifty former students and community members counter demonstrated peacefully across the street. Where were the current students and teachers, you ask? They were cloistered in the central courtyard of our school, eating donuts provided by the administration, having a safe, litigation-proof pep rally against hate.… Continue

Akosombo Dam, The only Hydroelectric Dam in Ghana prayed for by group of pastors so rains come down or be restored to supply the country's energy. They believe its the devil stopping the rains. so wont look for any solutions or renewable sources of energy, they get an excuse like always its the devil and satan. Ignorance once again.
Why do we as a people sit down, watch for a Dam like this to run out of water without looking at…

I copied this from Victor J. Stenger's new book, The New Atheist, Taking a Stand for Science and Reason.. The book is terrific. I am giving credit for everything but I also found the apparent entire works of Robert Ingersoll, on line, in toto. If anything ever described how I felt when I gave up magic, except for Buddha the Magician, of course, this is it. I love this quotation. Read the whole thing if you start.
When I became convinced that the Universe is natural-that…Continue
Adam and Eve; God created them with “free will”. Problem being that he didn’t give them intelligence to choose their all-powerful creator, whom they knew personally, and left them ignorant enough to choose to believe a talking snake instead. Since god knew this would all happen and created them as they were anyway, including the creation of angels that would rebel and deceive mankind, it is clear that this god intentionally wanted mankind to sin and not choose him. Why else would he create… Continue

I have listened to Rich Orman's Dogma Free America for a couple of years and love his international flavor to understanding the impact of religion on the world. This week he had me on his podcast to talk about The God Virus. You can listen to it on iTunes or download it from his website: http://dogmafreeamerica.com/index.php?post_id=452268
Rich has a great interview style and certainly did his homework before the podcast. Take a listen and let me know what you think.
Had a great conversation with Rich Orman on his podcast, Dogma Free America. You can listen to it through iTunes of his website http://www.dogmafreeamerica.com/ It will be on line around April 8.
His is one of the three or four free thought podcasts I listen to every week. I have listened to his podcast for a couple of years now and enjoy its "wider angle" view of the issues we all are concerned about on the planet. What is different is their more international view of religion's… Continue

Judeo-Christians use the phrase “God's Will”. They'll use it to explain why bad things happen to good people. They use it to explain weird and illogical rules in the Bible.
Christians will say God's will is clear. “It clearly states in the Bible, fag's shouldn't marry”. To get the full effect of the last quote read it again this time with a judgmental know-everything southern accent. “It clearly states in the Bible, fag's shouldn't marry”. Now you should look at your cousin… Continue
The fact that these people are pushing so hard to shut the rest of us up, makes me suspect that they know they are in the wrong. Sorry guys if you want to worship a pedophile, brain wash kids into becoming suicide bombers, and treat women like property, I will criticize you and I don't care whether or not it hurts your… Continue
