An interesting thing occurred after I returned to the Land of the Rising Sun. I had been in Tokyo a couple of days, and jet lag had seemed not to be too much of an issue, thanks to napping at the appropriate times. However, after running about Harajuku with a friend of mine and visiting Oedo Onsen afterwards, I was a content and drowsy foreigner. We each paid the fee for all the wonderfulness that was the Old-fashioned Edo village inside the bathhouse, on the way out. We tossed on our shoes and… Continue

An issue of my webcomic guest starring a certain Muslim prophet, goes online in some 24 hours. Am I nervous? Fuck yeah.
True, our readership is currently small and I don't expect anyone will even notice, but I am tense nevertheless. I'm glad we stuck to our guns and didn't fall into the trap of fear-induced self-censorship that so many others do. Still, if anyone ever says that Islam is a religion of peace, call bullshit on them. I never lost a minute of sleep over an issue… Continue

Living in the small town area that I reside in and being a part of this still taboo minority can be rough sometimes but have no bearing on my social setting or comfort of the setting. I have noticed it depends on the people you are around and the atheist vs. theist ratio, you won't hear a lone christian argue with a room full of atheist for very long and (depending on the atheist) vice versa. But this isn't about argumentative bickering over who has the best idea, or just perhaps it never… Continue

It is easy to find all answers we want in the Bible, no matter earthquake,tsunami,or nuclear crisis which happened on 11th,march,Japan, also we could know everything which would be happened in the world, because the Bible tells us it is not safe in the world.
Yes, remember the world is not safe always and try to understand what will occurr or be ready to accept all tragedies, do not try to avoid it .
But why not give the hints to human beings to predicat it ?… Continue

I’ve always wondered, “When did humans realize they were mortal?”
Were we Australopithecus? Homo erectus? Or did we have to wait until we were fully Homo sapiens?
Imagine a small group of early humans. What did they think was happening when one of them was killed by a predator and became “something” that resembled the very same meat they had for dinner last night! What did they think? Did they consciously tell themselves “we are just mobile meat waiting to be killed… Continue

I run a Skeptics in the Pub here in Huntsville- next one in February, be on the look out. I'm interested in how many people self identify as "Skeptics". And what they think are interesting subjects. Yes, I'm shamelessly asking for relevant topics for my events to focus on; but I'm also just curious what other people think about.
Equally interesting, to me, is what non-skeptics think about things like UFOs, Bigfoot, Medical Quackery (homeopathy, chriopractic, acupuncture, etc),… Continue

It has been a crazy couple of weeks and writing has not come easily so I just threw together these short reviews of GI Joe, Julie and Julia, Away we Go, and Aliens in the Attic as well as a complete review on District 9.
Aliens in the Attic
After an hour of dimwitted dialogue, the alien planet the antagonists hail from becomes a viable option to escape the mind-numbing effects of this movie.
Away We Go
A surprisingly mature look at love,… Continue

I am a little scared .the Iranian revolutionary guards (the most cruel and brutish armed force in Iran) have arrested 26 people for anti religious activity on Internet .here converting from Islam or even saying something against it in public can cause death punishment. Honestly I admit that now I am more concerned about myself than being worried about those poor people who have been arrested for ambiguous accuses . I don't know any of them (in fact I don't know any active Iranian atheist on… Continue
