Why Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite.

I think my favorite film in the whole Harry Potter franchise has got to be The Prisoner of Azkaban.  For the sweep and drama, the emotional development of the characters, it does it all for me.

 

My favorite scene in that movie is near the end, with Harry at the lake, surrounded by swarming Dementors....he keeps holding out, waiting for his father to save him.  And waiting... and waiting...

Until he finally realizes that if anyone is going to save the day, he has to do…

Coming Soon- The American Theocracy

The move toward American Theocracy by the empowered evangelical 'elite' in the US has made it almost impossible for an atheist or difficult for a non-christian to be elected to office.  Schools are having their curriculum undermined by creationist who wish to revise history, remove evolution from science, and prevent teaching sexual health and pregnancy prevention.  Atheist fear reprisals for not being christian and are often discriminated against at work, socially, and most especially in…

A way of spreading atheist memes-an idea worth considering

First of all, I really wanted to make a difference.



I ruled out blogging and writing on forums because I don’t have that kind of time and arguing with christians is frustrating.



Then I considered the Youtube, but I’m not a charismatic person and the only option was to add subtitles to English language clips and post them on my own channel, which I had to start from scratch, so the impact would have been quite…

A Cold Stare - Planned section for a book called "A Journey of 'Faith': Memoire of a Transformation from Christian Child to Atheist Adult"

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS!! I NEED FEEDBACK ON MY ATHEIST MEMOIRE IN PROGRESS!!

From time to time memories of my former life as a Protestant Christian come back. Some of them are pleasant, some unpleasant, others simply perplexing.

There is one that came to mind today that is still perplexing to this day.

Years ago, I had decided to confirm myself into the church, ironically, this was only a year before my dramatic…

The Free Market of Ideas

On a level playing field, good ideas are accepted and bad ideas are rejected. However, the world is still filled with bad ideas. If the premise is true and the conclusion is true, then we must assume that there isn’t always a level playing field in the free market of ideas.

Help!

I'm taking a creative writing class this quarter. Our first assignment is to create a character adn a setting that we will use in the rest of our assignments. Both have to be contemporary, and we're forbidden from creating sci-fi/fantasy style characters/settings. :(



I'm less disappointed by this than I thought I would be, but I'm not quite sure what exactly I want to go with. I think I have it boiled down to a few different alternatives: a teen-aged non-believer living with… Continue

Part One: What Are Our Values?

I'm a fan of George Lakoff from his book Don't Think of an Elephant! and assorted videos of his presentations. His idea of frames presents good reasons why we can't just kick over a few theistic talking points (even when we're right) and expect to have believers drop everything and take up our banner. It doesn't matter that we have science and reason on our side; they'll keep inventing new ways to square their circles (to quote Hitchens) or find an excuse to duck out of the debate… Continue
