Another try at the skeptics' meetup

Some time back, I was an enthusiastic member of the local skeptics' meetup.  It was a chaotic, free form get together where people talked about, just about anything.  People got to know each other, discussed their experiences, and I felt a sense of community.

About a year ago, the meetup changed.  There was movement toward a more…

It's Just a Word

One of my kids asked me if I'm nonbeliever and of course, I asked, "A nonbeliever of what?" I wasn't trying to be flippant, but there are so many things not to believe in that it is difficult deciding where to start. Then I said, "I suppose you mean am I a nonbeliever in god?" That prompted a long discussion, but I think he understood when we finished talking.



He was trying to find a way of categorizing me to a few of his friends that read my books. I hadn't given it much thought,… Continue

TAPs and PAPs

This wasn't really meant to be a blog entry, but it wound up being too long to fit in my page comments. This is from the Wikipedia page on agnosticism:

Dawkins also identifies two categories of agnostics; Temporary Agnostics in Practice (TAPs), and Permanent Agnostics in Principle (PAPs). Dawkins considers temporary agnosticism an entirely reasonable position, but views permanent agnosticism as "fence-sitting, intellectual cowardice."

This has…

My English Composition Essay "The Agnostic Answers"

The Agnostic Answers

When returning to class after my absence, I hadn’t expected to be speaking to my instructor in great detail about my grandfather’s death. He was very interested to know not only how I was handling the loss, but how the funeral ceremony was held. My explanation was stumbled, as is always the case when faced with unexpected questions, but not as stumbled as when he asked me a particularly daunting question:

 

“What is your…

What atheism SHOULD mean

[/caption]

“A belief which leaves no place for doubt is not a belief; it is a superstition.” ~José Bergamín
Many people mistakenly believe that dictionary definitions tell us what words mean. But it’s the other way around. We, by our actual usage of words, tell dictionary lexicographers how to define words. English is a fluid… Continue

Good for the Gander

For the longest, Christians felts free to say the most horrible things about atheists, agnostics an other nonbelievers, but books by prominent atheist writers such as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Chris Hedges caught religionist off guard and became international best-sellers.  It seems many Christians have thin skin when it comes to taking the criticism about their religion despite their expertise denigrating others.



Christian religionist regularly disparaged atheists and… Continue

Does it make me a bad person?

My wife, Ellen, posed a simple question to her friends on Facebook:

“Does it make me a bad person that I don't believe in a god any longer?”

FAN MADE VIDEO FOR FREETHOUGHT M.C. SONG,"MODERN HUMANOLOGY" - 2009

Thank you to the fan in Germany - who has chosen to have their name withheld - for using my pictures and creating this wonderful masterpiece. BRILLIANT!!

By the way, that verse WAS done intentional; I did not mess up and there was no edting error. That verse goes: ...."wake up and enjoy my life each and every single day; said I'm gonna wake up and enjoy my life every and each single day...(that's my own Humanology...)". I "flipped" the words, just because it sounded… Continue

Wild "Community" of Non-Theists: Do Atheists Need a High Priest (Dawkins, Stenger, Harris, Hitchens)?

Since it seems as timely as it did a few months ago, I'm reposting this breakdown of Atheists.

What think ye, freethinkers?



I've been thinking about the many different kinds of freethinkers/atheists/non-theists I run into. Here is my breakdown of the sectarians in the naturalistic "community." I hope this starts a healthy, productive, creative discussion!



A: Angry, aggressive and obsessed with anything anti (a, a, a, non, un. . .)

T: Thoughtful, thinkers and…

Conversatios with my Mother; part 2

My mom knows I'm an atheist and that I'm writing a book about her scandalous cult-leading mother. She's bothered by the first and okay with the second. We ended up in a really constructive conversation last night about religious extremism. I told her that I'm planning on marketing my upcoming book to "moderate christians" because I think they need to wake up and take responsibility for the crazies in their flock. Oddly enough, she agrees. She's on the "leadership council" and "planning… Continue
