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…

Ten Reasons Not To Believe

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…

My Favorite Lines From Mirror Reversal

Lines

 

His father was a venerable and respected police officer who never took a bribe except when he needed money.

 

“… mankind can be defined as ‘a peculiar ape infested by meme complexes!’” 

 

‘Fifty dollars for fellatio and a hundred for coitus.’  I gotta write that down so I can use it on the muckety-mucks from Connecticut.”

 

“What’s a skinny ass like…

Why Religion Is Bad For Humans And Other Living Creatures? Part I

The Bible and Koran encourage and condone the worst aspects of human behavior: war, slavery, necrophilia, cruelty to animals, anthropocentrism, suicide, starvation, racism, xenophobia, blind faith, sexism, homophobia, nepotism, denial of reality, self flagellation, dichotomous thinking, torture, human sacrifice, symbolic cannibalism, and other insults to reason. The result has been to distort and pervert the worldview of all who cherish these religious beliefs and have faith in the dictates…

A letter to New York Magazine

I just watched the interview with General Peter Chiarelli with Candy Crowley on CNN. I hit the ceiling to hear such balderdash. How the heck can the general say it with a straight face on national TV? To the problem of one in ten GIs coming home with missing limbs, or one in four with serious mental post-traumatic stress disorders and an “epidemic suicide rate,” the general conjectured “we need to study the brain!” What do you expect from ten years of atrocity, General? From a full decade of…

A Refutation of Muslin Demographics

I took another look at the Muslim Demographics video and I’m quite dismayed. Unknowingly, I was recommending a Christian-based piece of propaganda.



I was so daunted by the Muslim growth statistics (> 8 per family) that I overlooked the purpose and intention of the video makers.



First of all, when a video or article starts off with, “According to research…” it should send up a red flag. What… Continue

Sex and Religion in Manila.

Jacqueline Sarah Homan sent me a very disturbing video about Sex and Religion in Manila. I haven’t been so pissed off at the Catholic Church since Brother George failed me in religion and spoiled my academic record. With 90s in the NYS Regents in science and math, I was turned down by two universities because of my apathy and animosity to Catholicism.



Years ago in Mirror Reversal I… Continue

ALARM, ALARM, THE ENDMEME THREATENS ALL LIFE

This is the sequel to “Why I Became a Militant Non-Believer” on this blog.



Humanity is in a race with itself and we're running out of time. The planet is in dire straights. Nature has given mankind the power of reason, and in return, like Frankenstein’s monster, humans destroy her with the power of science. The waste of billions of years of evolution is unbearable to contemplate.



It’s the arrogance and stupidity that’s so hard to take. Instead of blessing nature with joy… Continue
