Enough Election Shit!

Every commercial break an ad for some asshole candidate comes on. Every fucking commercial break. There is nothing positive in these commercials. They are nothing but quote mining, lies of omission, perversions of facts, straight lies and calling the other candidates "liberal" (as if anyone in this fucking state know what liberal means). I'm sick and tired of hearing about it. None of these idiots know what the fuck they are doing. No, that not true, they know what they are doing they are… Continue

Christine O’Donnell: Dear God, Change Your Mind



During her short time on the political stage, Christine O’Donnell has generated such incredible buffoonery she could start an “All Christine, All the Time”…

I was looking at the comments of a video on Youtube and I come across an anarchist with the typical anarchists argument meaningless rhetoric about taxes: "its extortion" and "its theft".

If He Walks Like a Muslim and Talks Like a Muslim…



HEATHEN! - I'm not saying he's a Muslim, but he sure looks to be a born one to me.

There's nothing surprising about recent poll numbers indicating more people are "confused" about The Messiah's™ true religion than… Continue

"Atheist Schools of Thought" - from Atheist Climber Blog

From Atheist Climber Blog



Writing this blog has been a huge learning experience for me. I've had a large amount of comments, on some threads particularly, which have ranged from enlightened thought through to downright insanity, but each has helped me formulate just where I stand in relation to religion, humanity and the universe. One thing has become clear to me when discussing issues with… Continue

"It's OK, it's part of my religion" from Atheist Climber blog

I published this piece at my blog and thought you all might appreciate it.



As you may know, my universe has no room for the possibility of a god. And in general I don't care what other people think and believe as long as their suppositions and practices don't affect me in any way. You can believe in fairies and unicorns and believe you have to bay at the moon 2 times a night to stop from… Continue

"Just One Fix" from Atheist Climber blog

Via Atheist Climber Blog



Religion really is an oddity in humanity. When citing religion, one can be excused for irrational behaviour or beliefs. It gives people an excuse to not take part in the cultural norms of the society they live in. It allows people rights and privileges that people not of that religion are denied. It regularly excuses wrongdoing and lawbreaking if these are done "in the name of God". It… Continue

Why Religion and God are Unnecessary in the Modern World

I was originally going to publish this at Associated Content but they don't give up front payments for opinion articles so I published it there under a non-exclusive license and will publish it else where including my blog.



Introduction

Beliefs in gods is as old as civilization as is religion. But is the belief in god(s) and religion necessary? Does it benefit society or does it harm society? It is my belief that a belief in god(s)… Continue

Chaplaincy in Australia's State Schools...

In an emotional display, Kevin Rudd PM told the story of a couple that he knew personally, who died tragically whilst doing a good deed, to the Australian Christian Lobby’s annual conference in Canberra. Allan Taylor, the husband, was a school chaplain. Rudd intends to give $42.8mil in funding to the National School Chaplaincy program which was due to end late 2010.



Rudd used personal testimonies of Taylor, by friends, students, teachers, and colleagues as evidence of the importance… Continue

What's going on, America?

What's going on, America?



Please note, I did not write this - quoted from elsewhere. There is so much in this writing with which I can personally identify, it's scary.



"I grew up in a family of moderate Republicans- more George HW Bushes than George W Bushes, you know? This exposed me, as a child, to ridiculous nonsense, much of which can be seen in the political email… Continue

Would John Oxendine represent all Georgians?

John Oxendine is a Republican candidate for the Governor of Georgia. In this blog post, I raise serious questions about just who the Ox would represent were he elected.

We're Coming to Get You

America: Land of the Free, Home of the Brave; With Liberty and Justice for All.



America: Bastion and Protector of those great ideals that many hold dearly, such as Freedom of Belief, Freedom of Conscience, and Freedom of Speech.



America: The Great Republic, where the people are Sovereign.



That is, unless They get control. They hate freedom. They hate America.



America is under attack.



And America is in danger of being… Continue

President George W. Bush

W said in an interview that the Bible is "probably not" literally true.

I'm not surprised, but I find it hilarious the religious right were "stunned" LOL
Anyone with a thinking brain knows the Republicans used them to gain power, but did little for them once they took over. Silly people

Are Republicans Haunted by these Numbers?

Pundits & politicians make predictions by watching voter trends. Despite a bit of pre-election uncertainty about the Presidential race, they accurately foretold the Republican losses in the House & Senate, primarily because they could tell that the electoral wind was to the backs of the Democrats. "Them Dems" may not have captured every seat up for grabs, but Congress took on a… Continue

Heaven, The Ultimate Welfare State

More reason to get rid of religion:



I have always been amazed listening to right wing's conservative Christians accusing people ,like Barack Obama, for example, who have pledged their life into helping better the lives of economic stricken working people as socialist and communist. Yet, these same right wing's conservative Christians put their faith and hopes in going to a place that is undeniable the ultimate welfare state ,called heaven, controlled by a communist… Continue

Terrorism: The use of terror, violence, and intimidation to achieve an end.

Terror: Intense, overpowering fear. Anything that instills such fear; a terrifying object or occurrence.

Faith Based Funding Violates US Constitution

I read that Senator Obama wants to establish Faith Based funding initiatives. It makes me nervous when I start hearing elected officials in the government start talking about issues of faith for a number of reasons. As an atheist I feel uneasy contemplating the fact that a recent Pew poll (7/18/08) indicates 92% of my fellow Americans believe in an invisible being who watches over them, providing them with personal attention and guidance. If that isn’t enough to worry about now I have to worry… Continue
