The ‘Science and Rationalists Association of India’ popularly known as ‘Juktibadi Samiti’ is working for eradication of superstition and racism for past many years. They have quite a few publications- books, magazines those are in high demand.
Praise "Bob!" Here I have for you a wonderful old sermon (the oldies are the best, aren't they?) from Reverend Ivan Stang of the Church of the SubGenius, given around the time the Ice-T hit "Cop Killer" was in the news for being somehow a NEW theme in rock 'n' roll. A "new" theme that proves that what adults have been saying for (literally) millenia is right: Kids These Days are Out of Control and it's… Continue
Another look at recent history around the world where religion and politics collided is proof the US should do more to promote the Separation of Church and State. This time I examine the Irish-English conflict.
The very modest intention of The Little Book of Humanity is to gather into one blog the very best ideas of secular, humanist and atheist thinkers, writers, poets, philosophers and scientists of the past. The goal is to form a little guidebook on how to… Continue
Today I heard about a single mother who got so fed up with her son playing video games all night that she called the cops on him!! She actually dialed an emergency number and had the police come to parent her son!
WHAT THE HELL!
I have heard so many STUPID, RECKLESS misuses of 911, from a wrong fast food order to videos games apparently, it's just unbelievable. Do people really think that we have unlimited emergency resources? Do people really believe they can call 911… Continue
Freedom from religion is finally coming to Memphis! Well, I should say: Dan Barker from the Freedom From Religion Foundation is coming; since the City Council here continues its unconstitutional prayers at its official… Continue

Oh really? REALLY? The same founders he says actually wanted this to be a religious nation.. are the same ones that drafted the Constitution which said:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of… Continue
I'll be interviewing with DJ Grothe on Point of Inquiry Wednesday. It should be up on his podcast in the next week or so. Hope you all will listen. Off to New Orleans Dec. 11 to speak to The New Orleans freethinker organization.
I have recently moved to a small town about 25 miles south of Kansas City. My wife and I went to the city hall to sign up for various city maintained utilities (electricity, water). After getting signed up and putting down a deposit, the nice lady behind the counter offered us a 'Welcome to Gardner Kansas' bag filled with various advertisements and coupons to local establishments...oh yeah it included one other thing: a booklet provided by a local baptist church. This particular publication was… Continue
While I respect the right of any person to believe as they wish, I also believe that the right to speak our minds freely and without fear of reprisal, intimidation or sanction is a hallmark of Western democracy. We should not surrender our rights in order to provide uncertain security in the face of violent opposition to contrary opinions. Ben Franklin wrote, “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety”.
I saw The Invention of Lying this weekend and strongly encourage all non-believers to go see it. Ricky Gervais has done a great job of framing some key questions. A friend recommended it and it was halfway though before I understood why she thought I should see it.
Off to speak at UC Berkeley, San Francisco Atheists and UC Davis this next weekend through Tuesday. If you know of anyone in those areas, tell them to come see my presentation. Here a link to my calendar:…
As can be demonstrated throughout history, religions do all they canto insert themselves into aspects of people's lives in which they have no business. "Good parents" bring their children to church; How many catholic hospitals are there around the U.S.?, How many religious schools?
