SOME THOUGHTS FROM THE GOD DELUSION

Observation and thoughts derived from the book The God Delusion: Chapter 10, Dawkins wrote the statement that 96 percent of the population of the United States thinks that they will survive their own death. If one was to say that should I jump off this 12 story building unaided, after I hit the bottom of the pavement, I will survive that fall. Any reasonable person would have no other recourse but to find the nearest phone and call 911 for emergency services. Because my statement would…

Another update on Josh Brecheen.

It has been good to see the mostly positive reaction to the ill-conceived comments of Oklahoma State SEN Josh Brecheen. If this man is looking to make a name for himself, he

certainly is. He put an editorial in the local paper from his senate

district, The Durant Daily Democrat. In addition to the uproar over

several things wrong with attempting to try to have creation taught

in public schools, the comments in the newspapers website have…

Response to Senator Josh Brecheen of Oklahoma.

One of the bills I will file this year may be dismissed as inferior by “intellectuals” so I wanted to devote particular time in discussing it’s merits. [You put intellectuals in quotes so we do not know

exactly what or who he is referring to here. “it's” means, “it is.” This

makes no sense grammatically.

 

It doesn’t address state waste, economic development, workers comp reform or lawsuit reform (although I have filed bills concerning each) but it is…

Chapter One; LIVING IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD part two

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.…

Chapter Ten; CONGRATULATIONS CHARLES DARWIN part forty

2009 was the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin birth and also the 150th anniversary of the publishing of On The Origins of Species In 1859. In The United Kingdom the Royal Mint has issued a commemorative two pound coin with the stuck pose of Darwin on the right facing across from a portrayal of chimpanzee. On the front of the coin is, of course, the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The coin is issued in a limited edition and you may be able to order on from the website listed… 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…

Chapter Eight; SUNDAY GO TO MEETING part twenty-eight







On any given Sunday morning driving around in America presents a strange occurrence. It is the furthest divergence of the two groups

ideologically wish to have to do with each other. The faithful adherents

make their way through various traditions of attendance to their place

of worship. They are the ones that populate the early morning traffic on

Sunday mornings. The…

Please help this important women's rights documentary get made!



Readers, you may have recently noticed on my sidebar a plea to help to Brooklyn-based filmmakers, Lana Wilson and Martha Shane, raise funds for their documentary "Trust Women," which takes a look at Dr. LeRoy Carhart and Dr. Warren Hern, two of the last physicians in the country who continue to perform late-term abortions. Whether they realize it or not, the directors are documenting the tale of two American doctors who stand up to terrorism everyday. I had the chance… Continue
