Self Deprecation In Christianity: A Facetiously Emotional Sales Ploy

We have all been there and done it. Sitting on a couch, consoling a friend over a terrible mistake that has been made, and used our own personal flaws as a buffer before giving advice on what to do about the mess at hand. This is self deprecation, and while a very useful tool while navigating social situations, there is a fine line between using it as a tool, and using it as a facetious psychological mind fuck.



Usually, self deprecation is a general statement of flaws, like,"Well,…

When Secular Children Fly Solo At Church

This weekend was a personal test for my parenting. As an atheist parent, I am pretty adamant in presenting both sides of an argument and using context when discussing religious belief with my kids. The only confirmation of how fair of a job I am doing is when the kids end up in awkward…

Atheist Women: Why Are They More In The Boardrooms Than Heard In The Streets?

index Everywhere I scroll, I find many atheist and secular minded individuals with my same mindset. No God. No religion. Acceptance for all. On the television, it is always the same faces of Dawkins, Harris, Silverman, and occasionally Cupp. I run into the same issues on blog sites like Patheos, Freethought, Secular Coalition, and American Atheists. Same male faces and the dash of a female…

Atheist Inside & Out

Our problems as atheists isn't the superstitious. It's the atheist in the closet. Our true colors, our true numbers are not known as many atheist are in the closet. There are atheist who even attend Church to blend in for family, friends, co-workers and society at large.

The Black community gained political power when they stopped cowering, conforming and…

My Journey

The journey began years ago.

I have traveled the path through my mind many times.

It has been in recent past my mind has begun to heal from past turmoil.

You see what U get is turmoil when dealing with the past in an obsessive compulsive manner.

Remembering the past is suppose to be in a natural recall mode.

I was born into A  Pentecostal/Methodist family.

Until recently did I realize that Although I thought that my Pentecostal Grand Mother was the…

Superb Reading List for Atheists

It’s by the Humanists of Sarasota Bay.  The reason it’s so superb and wonderful is that Pot Stories of and Humanist Essays of Barbara Walker and I has just been added to the recommended Reading List—to me, anyway. 

I’m really honored to be in the company of such important authors.  I made the joke:  if the majority of Americans read these books it would it would knock modern “In God We Trust” society on…

The Technical Atheist

Atheists, by and large, have let their opponents define them in the public mind by what they do not believe.  And I strongly suspect that actually is a fair way to describe most atheists.

But there is another breed of atheist:  An atheist with a body of positive beliefs that either makes the existence of god irrelevant or implies that god does not exist.

An atheist of this sort can fairly be called a technical atheist…

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…

Where the hell have I been?

Beats me.

Oh, well, yeah, I know.  But should I tell?  Mostly I've been running thither and yon, metaphorically speaking, and sinking into a morass of self pity and morose depression.  I have papers to prove it!  OK, not really, but sort'of.  I keep trying to shake off this damned sense of humor but it just won't go away.  I even quit taking my Happy Pills so freely give by the VA and the pissant thing sneaks up on me, like today.

I'm ok if I don't move.  If I take my Gabby and…

Kicked of Facebook...AGAIN!!!

Well got kicked off Facebook again....

They must have something against atheists.

And this time, I had well over a thousand followers...

That alone should tell you something.

But honestly, maybe it is a good thing.

Seems there are those on FB who just like to hunt atheists....

But if you fight back, YOU ARE THE BAD PESON!

Now, these people don't have to come to my page..but they do.

So I think it is time I just walk away from…
