Interesting Response from my State Representative

I present to you: The uneducated politician...

I sent a letter to my state representative regarding the availability of contraceptive coverage for ALL people.  Notice I said "availability."  This is the response I received:

Dear Kristen:

 

Thank you for contacting me to share your thoughts about regulations that will…

First Cause

I consider the Cosmological Argument the best argument for a creator God. Given the theme of this blog, I don’t consider it a particularly good argument, but it is the best none the less. What follows is the most fair, if not conclusive, rebuttal I have to give.



The argument from the origin of the universe, or the Cosmological Argument dates back to the beginning of apologetics. If you are interested in the history, Google it. I plan on…

An unintended effect

When I was in my 20s, I was driving to Colorado for a summer job. I had been across the USA before, camping with family, but this time I was on my own. I was just stopping for the night, and selected a roadside motel so I could get back on the road early the next morning. In perusing my rather plain room, I found, not a Gideon bible in the drawer of the bedside table, but a book entitled,

" the book of Morman". Curious, I flipped it open for a quick read. After just the first couple… Continue

I'm taking my stand against the christians and to lead by example of spreading our words of reason and reality.

 

Christians in general are some of the most scariest people of all the religions on this planet. They force there beliefs on you and if you don't believe them they will beat you, yell at you, and tell you lies to try to scare you into believing what they want you too. Only people who have the brain to think for themselves and make there own opinions are the strong ones because we can think for ourselves. In the words of Corey Taylor "Angels lie to keep control" If you look at most of…

Would ET Believe?

When ET finally arrives, he'll carry the fruits of an advanced civilization with him. What will he think of our primitive superstitions? How should we approach first contact with him? I've wrestled with this question in writing Dead Astronauts. Faced with first contact, the protagonists disagree. Air Force Colonel and true believer Rex Stone debates the issue with NASA scientist and nonbeliever Dawn Thomas. Here's how they… Continue

New Guy Says "Hello"

Hi.

I joined this site several months ago, but never really had a look around or tried to communicate with anyone. Since yesterday, May 12,2010, I started a blog at blogspot and joined Twitter. So I thought I should start using this site as well.

I did not know that this site has individual blogs for each of its members until just now. So I am filling in this first post. I will try to add content here and in the forum as I get used to everything.

Thanks, Duncan

Dan Barker calls for Memphis Council to steer clear of prayers, keep church and state separate

Dan Barker

Dan Barker, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), spoke out last night in Memphis against the religious convocations given at Memphis City Council meetings, arguing instead for neutrality in government when it comes to religion.



Barker opened on a light note, excusing himself for starting a little late, saying he was looking for someone who could begin the meeting in… Continue

SUBMIT

Ever fill out as on-line application or sign-up and when you fill in all the numbers and street addresses, the bottommost button says: SUBMIT?



Hey, wait a minute, says I with a smirk. SUBMIT—that’s what Mohammedans and other religious people do. They SUBMIT; they get down on all fours and kiss the ground with their foreheads and elevate their rumps in the air like some sort of smoke detector.



Islam means submission. SUBMIT has a religious connotation. Atheists and… Continue

Lake Local School District in Ohio Makes Belief in God a Goal

There are few things that can get under my skin like the education system in America. We do not do enough to teach our kids about the real wonders in the world through logical inspection and we fail miserably to teach them to respect or understand history. Schools that respect the secular requirements of our government fail to impart the importance of these subjects. What education are we denying children when they are educated by a school district that makes “belief in god” a goal in their… Continue

A First Time Entry Regarding Death, Loss & "Why"

My office recently lost a co-worker to a tragic accident. The funeral is tomorrow, so it is still pretty fresh on the brain. This is the second death in the office in as many weeks, and being a big corporation, management decided to bring in a representative from our Employee Assistance Program. I understand the need for a program like this and I'm grateful to work for an employer who offers this type of service to its people, but something about the presentation made me uneasy. The rep didn't… Continue

My first blog

Hi, I've been a member for a couple of months now, but I had not felt enough confidence to write anything, until now.



I'm for México and I'm sorrounded by religious people, some moderate, some extremists but the majority of the people, including my whole family is catholic, just like I used to be (or still are if you consider the fact that they just don't let you go so easily, you know since you just can't erase baptism).



I realized I was really and atheist about 2 years… Continue

First Post

So, I guess this is to be my first blog post. I suppose I should tell a little bit more about myself than I put in the 'About Me' section of my profile.



The short version: I was born, I went to school, and now I go to work.



I'll skip the details of my childhood, except to say that I was raised Roman catholic. I tried to believe, but it didn't take. Then I had lots of arguments about going to church with my parents.



I've always been interested in math and… Continue

I've got a blog!

Hooray, a place for me to say... anything I damn well please! I guess the first order of business is to share a bit more about myself than I did in the 'About Me' box :)

I was born in Louisiana, raised in Georgia, and now live in Alabama. I was brought up in a pervasively Christian atmosphere. My uncle was a pastor here in Huntsville, and I think my parents wanted to show the rest of the family what 'good Christians' they were, since they'd been the black sheep for eloping. Anyway, I was… Continue
