"Free Will" is really Free Won't

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…

Free Will?

Many of the basic principles that guide human behavior rest on the idea of free will, like the concept of individual responsibility and choices.

Free will is an important concept that affects a variety of serious thought. Legally it is assumed criminals have a choice in committing a crime, but science shows…

The Answer is Never Magic: Book Review

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.…

Free Will

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 Fred Phelps Circus: Coming to a School Near You

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.…

The Hell With Atheists After the Foxholes

Pastors pray for the only Ghanaian Hydroelectric Dam (Akosombo Dam)

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…

In God We Trust Lawsuit Dismissed

Just read a passionate post by Hemant Mehta on Friendly atheist about the dismissed “In God We Trust” Lawsuit in which he makes three significant points.
  • "I’m no lawyer… but how is that phrase not an endorsement of religion over non-religion? (Not only that, you know the phrase refers to the Christian…

Robert Ingersoll describes my joy of freedom in much better prose

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 & Eve

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

Dogma Free America

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.

Dogma Free America

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

God's Last Will and Testament

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
