"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…Continue
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…Continue

This link will take you to the US Government link for a petition to get the current administration to recognize that the Earth is 4.54 billion years old. Please sign and take the side of science!!
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.”
“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.…Continue
[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…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

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

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.

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…
I type this entry as I sit on the runway at Boston-Logan Airport, about to take to the sky for a 6 hour journey to San Jose. I will be traversing a distance of almost
2700 miles. If I were to go 600 miles farther, and in a different direction, I
could be in London, my hometown – this is a…
