What books should I read that can help me understand this important step I've taken.

I'm new at this. I'm the first in my whole family to brake the chains of religion. What literature is recommended to understand atheist.

Thank you

Are Holidays a Disaster?

"I choose to decline all invitations to a ghost's birthday party and to shun Christmas things as much as possible. I have no religious faith, I have no Christmas tree, and I want neither…and I don't believe I've missed a thing."

 

"... the willingness to do, in some form or another, what others have always done because of foundationless teachings that that is what we're all supposed to do," is "what aggravates me about holidays and…

A week after Sean.

It has been a very busy week indeed, On Friday the 12th Sean Faircloth, Peter Harrison, Dave Armstrong spoke at a public seminar, which was very enlightening about the problem we have with religion being shoe horned into the public school day. Last week I blogged an article about the seminar on my…

Jewish Atheist Fasts on Yom Kippur! (and other High Holiday thoughts)

God is the immemorial refuge of the incompetent, the helpless, the miserable. They find not only sanctuary in His arms, but also a kind of superiority, soothing to their macerated egos: he will set them above their betters.”

H.L. Mencken

“If this is your God, he is not very impressive. He has many psychological problems; he’s so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and creates faulty humans and then blames them for his own mistakes.…

Happy New Year!

[Note: The following was written when I was an adherent of Humanistic Judaism.  I have since left the movement and revised the post, but the basic ideas still apply.]

 

“Soon silence will have passed into legend.  Man has turned his back on silence.  Day after day he invents machines and devices that increased noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation.  Tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and…

A Brand New World

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…

On Fake Friends and Groupthink

“Never speak ill of yourself; your friends will always say enough on that subject.”

Talleyrand

“It takes your enemy and your friend, working together, to hurt you to the heart; the one to slander you and the other to get the news to you.”

Mark Twain



On June 28, my second wife and I would have celebrated our 31st anniversary.  I meant to write about it on the 28th, but hey, three years after the divorce, a guy’s allowed to…

Why I Dropped My New Testament Class (And Then Signed Up on this Website)

So, I originally wanted to create an account on here to rant about this, because I don't have too many people to rant to. It involves me signing up for a class about the New Testament at a community college in the middle of the Bible Belt and the crappy things that happened afterward. This is copied from my Tumblr, where I originally posted it, and it's fairly long.

I suppose it was my fault for thinking I could learn about the New Testament from a historical point of…

Even More catholic Whining

Back on June 13, 2011, I wrote the blog post More catholic Whining, in which I described the situations happening in some States like New York and Illinois, involving certain catholic charities having issues with their states making it illegal to discriminate against straight couples in common law relationships and to discriminate against gay couples when providing fostering and adoption services. Now I thought this story was…

Star Wars Is Overrated

Edit: I didn't name this? I are dumb.

Now before you jump down my throat I'm not saying it's bad, the original trilogy is good for the most part but it is not the gold that people seem to view it as. There are many good parts but there are bad parts as well.

I know someone will say in response to some of my criticisms: "in the novelisation ..." I don't care. I doesn't matter what the novelisation says, the movies are what matter, not the novelisations of the movies. Another…

Mondo Diablo Episode 300: It's a Conspiracy II





Does anyone think I need to celebrate because we have a big, round, and soft number here? I mean, should I wait until 500? That could be a long time from now.



Anti-irregardless, I hope everyone knows that this is one way to find out about what I'm doing, but there's also Facebook, which I, uh, "do." You can find "my facebook" at… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 299: It's a Conspiracy





This is a two-parter, so today you'll be getting the first half of "It's a Conspiracy," which includes clips from The Hitler Channel's "Secret Societies," with crazy old David Icke. Now, some of you may be familiar with Icke from Alex Jones and the like, so you may not know that Icke thinks there's a race of alien lizard people disguising themselves as powerful leaders. He really thinks this. Hey--some… Continue

Storm Damage From Tornado Near St. Louis.

Not really anything atheist per se about this other than people will say things like, "Thank God no one died."  But I though you all would like to see some local pictures.

Mondo Diablo Episode 286: This Christmas has Been Brought to You by Child Labor





This week, the Krampus and his workers, Knecht Ruprecht, Krampus, Hans Trapp, Zwarte Piet, Klaubauf, Muff, Butz, Pere Fouettard and Belsnickel, bring you the last in the series of Worst Jobs podcasts. This time it's children making dolls for children, gos-herding and turkey dressing. As in, yanking the guts out of hundreds or maybe thousands of fresh turkeys, by hand, in time for… Continue

Chapter Eleven; MORALITY AND MANKIND part forty-one

While it it's not as big issue using some of the moral teachings of the

Bible to guide your life, it is nothing but a delusion to believe the

stories of the Old and New Testament are based upon reality and science.

I may not be able to convince the devout followers to abandon their

faith in the fairy stories of the ancients and become and atheist as I

am but I may be able to convince some moderate followers to see the

wonders of nature and live their life for what… Continue

FUNDAMENTALISTS, THE BIBLE IS NOT INHERENT part thirty-seven





First, ask if they believe if the Old Testament still applies to a Christian Today. This will guide the rest of the discussion. As stated earlier, many fundamentalist state that they think the Bible is free of errors and contradictions. For my purpose and definition I would call “free of errors” as meaning that internally or externally is there anything inconsistent with the or contradictory in the text of the Bible or reflected in reality.

The good thing about this… Continue

"God In Chaos" Chapter Eight; HUMANIST POINT OF VIEW part thirty



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…
