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

Atheist Ireland Publishes 25 Blasphemous Quotes (including some from Jesus!)



If I lived in Ireland right now, I couldn't legally say St. Patrick was responsible for a horrible crime: inflicting Christianity on the Emerald Isle. Image from Wikipedia.

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

What the hell is wrong with people?

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

This letter is in response to "Nation must return to its spiritual roots" which was published on 12/1/09.

Glenn Beck: Demolish the Separation of Church and State



He is actually suggesting the wall of separation of church and state should be demolished...(yes.. i know there is no actual reference to such.. but it IS implied)... He says "its not what we were founded on"



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:

Welcome to Gardner

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

Blasphemy or the Truth

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”.

The Invention of Lying

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:…
