National Day of Reason, May 3 2012

I'll be attending the NDOR events in Raleigh, NC with some of my friends from our local Coalition of Reason group in the Piedmont Triad, NC. Greta Christina, Dan Barker, Todd Stiefel and more will be there.



For any reading this who feel that they are the "only non-believer I know", they should check to see what events will be taking place in their home towns, or…

Becoming an Atheist Activist

Let me start by saying one thing: I've always been an Atheist. I was born an Atheist (as everyone did) and my parents Catholicism just never took with me.  In the third grade, I came across a definition of Atheism in the dictionary at my parochial grade school and it changed my life forever (this story also includes my friend Bill and I discovering the definition of "Fart" in the same dictionary).  For the first time I had a title for what I felt beyond simply "Different."  Throughout my…

The odds are high that the Westboro Baptist Church is likely to attend the Reason Rally, the largest Secular event in history, and the National Atheist Party would like to formally invite them to stop by their booth…

Not Agnostic

 

Agnosticism privileges the religious argument.  It says that the religious argument is, at least, as likely as the Atheist argument. However, while the Atheist argument actually has supporting evidence (take a key feature of that argument: "The Universe requires no gods to exist."  Then, Occam's Razor.) the religious argument rests on assumptions that rest on other assumptions- turtles all the way down.

 

It's not that lack of evidence is evidence against the religious…

How to Free A Terrorized Mind

Superstitions terrorize the mind. Just like obsessive compulsive disorders they can override simple common sense by creating a great deal of unnecessary anxiety. The afflicted person may understand, in theory, that there is a better way to live, but the compulsion to believe is so great that they cannot simply just discard them like a soiled tee shirt.



The treatment is simple despite being rigorous. All we must do is apply a firm and consistent use of reason and plain, old fashioned… Continue

T. Paine

From Mormon to Reality

I am new to the Nexus and by way of introduction thought it a good idea to tell my story.



I grew up a Rush Limbaugh talks to God right wing Mormon. I was on the fast track for bishop, believing as sure as I live and breathe that God was my father, Jesus my brother, and if I did all the right things I would have my own universe with all of my Goddess wives. To be clear, Mormons, no matter how they deny it, are still polygamists in that they believe righteous men will marry multiple… Continue

Great quote

I ran across this quote from websnarf on youtube. Thought it was one of the best I have seen. Here is his page: http://www.youtube.com/user/websnarf



"With "god" there is no way to understand anything by my own efforts because god might be faking circumstances. There is no way for me to even know that I am in control of my own actions, because god might intervene or be tricking me into them. And accountability is meaningless since… Continue

Nice nice for the Canucks!

Yay for the Canadians. Hoorah to our neighbors from the North. According to the Angus Reid online poll:



58% of Canucks think humans evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years, and 22% believe God created people in their present form within the last 10,000 years.



Hip hip hooray! Nice nice! Yah boo! Phillips is a German and he have my pen! Um...excuse me...…
