Stupid is as Stupid Does (Book Review)

“Stupid is as Stupid Does These words uttered by Forest Gump in the movie of the same name, pretty much describes Americans, at least in the eyes of Charles P. Pierce, in his book, “Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free.”

I would like to report that Pierce is off base in…

Coming Soon- The American Theocracy

The move toward American Theocracy by the empowered evangelical 'elite' in the US has made it almost impossible for an atheist or difficult for a non-christian to be elected to office.  Schools are having their curriculum undermined by creationist who wish to revise history, remove evolution from science, and prevent teaching sexual health and pregnancy prevention.  Atheist fear reprisals for not being christian and are often discriminated against at work, socially, and most especially in…

This is America!

I don't know the ngenral opinion on the ground zero "mosque" here because I haven't been as active as I should be but I know at least 1 (thunderfoo at youtube) atheist has used the argument.



This is not Saudi Arabia this is America! The A in USA doesn't mean Arabia, it means America!

What am I talking about? Among the pathetic arguments against the "mosque" (its a cultural center you ignoramuses) the bigoted idiots spout out is "they don't allow churches in… Continue

Crimes are wrong... unless they are made in the name of God, right?

(Originally posted in Su Nombre en Vano)



Don't you love it when you get to see mainstream Christian's true colors? Don't you feel good to see that those who brag about loving the neighbor are just as, or even more bigoted than the average person? Isn't it reassuring that we are in the right path?



So, some days ago, this billboard was put up:…

Thank (insert deity here) for the internet!

I've had it! I sit up here in Canada watching my neighbor to the south as slowly, methodically, the far religious right creeps ever deeper into their government (local, state and federal - witness the Republicans & the Bush years), attempt to re-write history (as is currently happening in the… Continue

Good Meetup, new record for us.

Really enjoyed our local Meetup.com Atheist meetup downtown tonight. We started out at our usual hangout, Banter, but because of an unexpected musical performance, we relocated across the street to Hydrant Cafe, where we could actually converse and not strain our throats and ears.



We did actually experience our first heckler, of a sort, back at Banter; one middle-aged woman felt the need to tell us that "God saved my bacon I don't know how many times."; It took me a second to realize… Continue

IN THE NEW ERA OF THE 44th PRESIDENT OF THE USA, ATHEISTS EXIST BUT CANNOT PARTICIPATE.

A pivotal change in history was made in the USA today. A man of mixed race and skin color has been elected as President.



In his inaugural speech the new President acknowledged not only the racial mix of the nation, but the religious mix as well. This included reference to the presence of citizens with no religious beliefs.



In this inauguration the racial mix of the US Nation was acknowledged and peoples of various racial lines and mixtures were given pride of place and… Continue
