"Gut Feeling" or "Intuition" is a well developed open-minded connection with one's subconscious, the "God" experience

I don't believe that "Gut Feeling" is exclusively highly developed among persons without a formal education in science. There are many examples of self-educated persons who have a highly developed sense of direction that is not consciously derived.  In fact, I think a person educated in science, who is also a free thinker, will have an even higher developed and more sharpened "Gut Feeling".  The label may be the more eloquent "Intuition" or "ESP".  

In the same way that you may…

Religion…Enough With This S***! (…or, “You People Taking This Way Too Seriously!”), Part 1

"With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil — that takes religion."

--Steven Weinberg

As an agnostic, I have to admit that I have no way of putting myself in the cultural shoes or the socialized mindsets of individuals so obsessed with, and so fanatically devoted to their religious beliefs that they often engage in behavior which—contradictorily—turns the very precepts of their beliefs on their heads. The only…

National Atheist Party Announces 4 Scholarships

Rick Santorum recently accused Obama of being a snob for encouraging the youth of America to aim for a college degree. Education is one of the most important areas we can invest in as a society and yet our graduation rates are dropping. Proper investment in Education can lead to an increase in social mobility, a decrease in prejudice, and an increase in industry specialization which we are lacking when compared to other nations.…

Where Are You?

In the US, when people mention the word Libertarian, I think of Ayn Rand, …and have to fight a gag response. This to me is usually a neo-liberal/right wing/anarcho-capitalist simplification.

 

But, this is all relative, the word libertarian (small "L") meant an entirely different thing to my father, who also equated it with a strong sense of socially responsible governance as a means to achieve a greater good. Conservatives like to tout their "fiscally conservative" positions,…

U.S. Constitutional Bill of Rights Becoming Meaningless

The Patriot Act has made a mockery of the 4th Amendment: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." by allowing warrant-less wiretapping.

Now with the National Defense Authorization Act…

What is the "Atheist Agenda?"

"Atheist Agenda" is a scary sounding term to a lot of people. To some, it conjures up images of burning churches and outlawing the ownership of Bibles. To others, it's a bit less sinister, but still sounds like a concerted attempt to take away people's sense of identity as people of faith.



In light of recent examples of the "Religious Agenda," such as Gwinnett County's own Mountain Park First Baptist's blatant and repeated attempts to lead public school children in prayer, it's… Continue
