In Heaven Everything Is Fine - From Atheist Climber

"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is."



Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy




As you may have read previously on my blog, I'm a big fan of perspective. I like to have an idea of where I am and who I am, what it means to be alive and what it means to be… Continue

Victorian Government Refuses Funding for Atheist Convention in Melbourne

The Victorian State Government has basically ignored the request for funding for the "Rise of Atheism" Convention in Melbourne next March, while allocating $4.5m in funds for the "The Parliament of the World’s Religions".



This decision to basically ignore the funding request shows gross contempt for Atheism and Atheists alike in favour of religion and religious organisations.



See article posted at the convention's website… Continue

  • "I’m no lawyer… but how is that phrase not an endorsement of religion over non-religion? (Not only that, you know the phrase refers to the Christian…

Aweism

I ran across this essay in the April/May 2009 issue of Free Inquiry and it impressed the hell out of me. After showing it to some friends, 80% of them now say "I think I'm an Aweist." The other two were impressed as well but didn't make a commitment. After a lifetime of uncertainty about what to call my brand of nonbelief, I now consider myself an Aweist. I'd love to hear what the A/N community thinks of this new nomenclature.

So here, reprinted with the kind permission of the… Continue

A Christian May Be Atheists’ Best Friend

January 20, 2009. Like many people in America, if not most of them, and along with people around the world, I watched as Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States. Yes, he did add “so help me God” at the end of Chief Justice Roberts’ fumbled prodding, but he made up for this just a few minutes later.

Did I hear right? After I did a double-take and nearly twisted… Continue

Secular Nation Podcast

I was just interviewed by David Driscoll of Secular Nation Podcast. The interview went great and he gave me a lot of time to talk about Recovering from Religion as well. Take a listen at this link.

David really did his homework and had excellent questions for our discussion.

Please let others know about the podcast as well.

Unfair Criticism of PZ Myers and other Secular Scientists

On July 31, 2008 Salon.com posted an articled titled: What's wrong with science as religion, by Karl Giberson. Giberson, who has a PhD in physics and is the author of “Saving Darwin: How to be a Christian and believe in Evolution” was responding to a July 24th web posting by PZ Meyers on Meyers’ blog Pharyngula. (http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/) In the web posting Meyers stuck a rusty nail in a communion cracker, and then used the nail to impale pages of the Qur’an and Richard Dawkin’s “The… Continue
