I want to thank everyone for their support. I feel very welcome. I am receiving a lot of support from new found friends as well. Although I have not the courage to overtly state my opinion to everyone in my family, I also think it is not necessary that they all need to know right away. I have been very open about it in public and most of those people are either indifferent, agnostic or atheist themselves. I am a little shocked by this realization. I was under the impression that so…Continue
I know I'm behind the times but, I just saw the Debate(?) between Matt Slick and
Matt Dillahunty. I have to admit that Matt is Slick. I don't know about other people but,
their debate, to me, was weird. Slick appeared to try, exceptionally hard, to win the
debate through confusion and get Dillahunty to admit something. See I'm confused.
But, true to form, Dillahunty slammed Slick at every point. But Slick seemed unable
to absorb the Logical, Rational and Common Sense…

There’re many more reasons not to believe in the doctrines of organized religion. These are ten of my favorites, not necessarily in the order listed. You can probably think of many more.
1. If God is all-knowing, he knows the future before an event happens. So before a baby is born, God knows if it’s going to hell or not. If the baby is predestined to go “there” and God allows it to happen, we have to question if the Divine One is all-good. I wonder if anyone ever…Continue

Last time: I blazed through the observation that a-theism and an-archy share certain similarities, both in how each word is defined, and how each idea is redefined by its critics in order to dismiss either without addressing the problems each poses for ethics. I concluded by mentioning that these redefinitions serve to cut each idea off from the moral center of the individual. This time, I'll clarify what I mean by that, and introduce my thesis - tentatively one could call this a theory of…Continue

I know my intro post wasn't very clear. Let me start by laying out the scene a little better. About a month ago I moved from el Valle in Albuquerque, NM to a farm in the St. Francis Mountains (if they can be called that with a straight face) south of St. Louis, where I live with my GF and her grandma, who lost her husband a few months before. Oh yeah, plus our three dogs, three inside cats, three outside cats, and two inside birds. We don't count outside birds. :D
My GF -- let's call…Continue

Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, AK

Here is the question that was asked:
I support & follow ALL Air Force regulations protecting an Airman’s religious freedom.…Continue

I need your help and advice.
Awhile ago I heard about Seth Andrews' $30,000 Atheist Charity Drive. Before that I had heard about the Foundation Beyond Belief and other pre-existing secular charities.
While thinking about this, an idea entered my mind. Why not reach out to…Continue

This calendar features black and white nude photographs, and I’m Ms. September. For Maryam’s article announcing…Continue

First of all, I am who I am! I will not, by godlessdamn, be anything other than myself.
Second, I have little to loose. I played the games, faked the faces, but I never could really hide who I am. I became disliked, sometimes ridiculed, very often ignored, but because I have always believed in a few things very strongly, things like ethics and truth, and I stood up for them rather than…Continue
If I were a christian I could pick whatever kind of beliefs I wanted and then choose a church and jump in. I'd have plenty to do. There'd be friends to spend time with.
If I were a christian I could be eccentric or different and still find a niche where I belong.
If i were a christian our house would often be filled with guests, people showing up just to talk, people hanging around when there's trouble, people to listen when I need someone to talk to.
If I were a…Continue
