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…

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.…

Protest The Pope, London 18th Sept 2010: An account from one who was there.



Yesterday travelled down to London to hook-up with fellow hootoo-er Effers (AKA Alison) to join the Protest The Pope Campaign.



Her account can be read here.





We rendezvoused at St Pancras as planned and navigated the tube to Hyde Park, we knew we were in the right area as we began following the devout with these little yellow "Pilgrim…

"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

"Science, atheism and the search for more" - From Atheist Climber Blog



One of the innate human characteristics that separates us from other animals on earth is our insatiable need to find out "why". Our natural need to seek for things like food and a mate is shared with other animals, but the questioning of why things happen is a unique to humans. It is ingrained in us, from the first day we start searching… Continue

"At the edge of knowledge" from Atheist Climber Blog



We know nothing.



The collective knowledge of all the people on earth that have ever lived is but a drop in the ocean of all possible knowledge in the universe. (1) And the amount of knowledge any one person has is… 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

"Objectivity vs Subjectivity in debate" from Atheist Climber

From "Atheist Climber" blog,



Rembrandt's "Two Philosophers"



There seems to be a lot of confusion for people on what is a compelling argument, and what is just muddying the waters of debate. So often, when in discussions around the existence of gods, the yeasayer will turn to personal experiences of things… Continue

"Haiti Gets Bibles – Needs Hospitals" - via Atheist Climber blog

Our universe is a place of massive physical forces, and given the microscopic size of humanity in the scale of it all, it’s not surprising that we get caught up in the midst of these forces. And when we do, lives and infrastructure are lost on a relatively massive scale.



In 2004, the Indian Ocean Tsunami, caused by a massive earthquake off the west coast of Sumatra, causing massive devastation of homes and communities, and taking more than 230,000 lives in Indonesia, Sri Lanka,… Continue

"Why do we care?" - from Atheist Climber blog

From Atheist Climber blog



Logic. Reason. Rationality.



These are the 3 tools I use on a daily basis to make sense of the world. Without these tools, the world decays into a mess of suppositions and superstitions.



This means that whenever I look at the world, I have a lifetime's worth of knowledge by which I can make assessments on what is… Continue

My Christmas Message from "An Atheist's Perspective" - Via Atheist Climber Blog

“I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.” - Frank Lloyd Wright



Every year at around this time I feel the need to reflect on the year passed, and be thankful. While this may be trite, I do see the end of years celebrations as an important time, a time for reflection. We all feel it to some degree.



Why is it that we feel the need to reflect and be thankful? It's a weird sensation, because I don't have a God to thank for my existence. I don't believe in a… Continue
