Robert Frost (1874-1963)



Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

The danger of Islam over other religions

I may be misinformed here but my take on Islam is that it is the 'One true religion' and its followers have a duty to convert kaffirs or declare jihad on them (whatever the interpretation of that is). It is that black and white. As for apostates, I know of no other religion where some factions advocate death.



Faith schools and religious segregation are allowed and encouraged by this government and Madrasses are being set up all over the place. I have learned about fundie christian… Continue

Up front, please understand that I'm not trying to take away anyone's happiness in their Easter holiday, whatever that means for you. I'm not saying you're a terrible person if you like Easter or if you have a Christian easter celebration, or you find bunnies soft and… Continue

Texas Board of Education

As I'm sure was the case with many of you, I was up in arms when I found out about this:



http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/12/texas-education-board-app_n_497440.html



Seriously? How do you remove Thomas Jefferson from history? How can anyone justify misrepresenting history in order to push their own agenda?



Thankfully, a friend sent me this NPR interview which helped put… Continue

Diary of a Wimpy Kid - A Perfect Dump and Run Movie

Sixth grader Greg Heffley learns important lessons about friendship, being a good friend and identity in Diary of a Wimpy Kid. A light-hearted, middle-school buddy movie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a perfect dump and run movie.



Entering middle school wasn’t as easy as Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) anticipated. Some of the kids are way bigger than him. The same things that are cool in elementary school become a badge of shame in middle school. Greg does everything he can to fit in and be… Continue

child marriage stopped by rationalists

Right after the Annual Conference held at Kolkata, our Bankura branch has jumped into action. A tribal girl, Putul Tudu aged 12 years was being given in marriage against her will. It is not only illegal in India, but unethical and inhuman. Our secretary Biplab Das from Bankura visited the remote village Housibad amidst the jungles of Taldangra with another member Tarun Rakshit on 9th March and stopped the wedding. He informed the police and got the attention of the administration and saved…

The Gesargenplotzian Gospel

To further debate, I'll repost the following "revelation", received as a young man by a (now-retired) prof. of philosophy at Virginia Tech, Harlan Miller.




Harlan says that he is an atheist on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and a Gesargenplotzian on other days. IMHO he's using it…

Attitudes of Atheists toward Religion



October 12, 1997. Attitudes of atheists toward religion.


Nonbelievers call themselves by a variety of names, and have
formed a plentitude of organizations (despite their small numbers). I
think this is due to the range of attitudes they have on crucial
issues, foremost among them religion.


Recently, on an email discussion list, I read one man's comment
that he preferred the…

Mondo Diablo Episode 238: Stang on Satanism





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
