Not Even An Apology (For Destroying Countless Lives)

Richard Nixon

It’s fitting to have this war criminal, McCarthyite and lying “crook” who abandoned the White House in disgrace, as the figurehead for the modern War on Drugs, the holocaust of the modern age.  Tens of thousands of lives were ruined, psychologically damaged (including mine), and plain murdered to keep the nightmare going.  All perpetrated so many professions could feed off the mayhem like sea gulls circling a countless school of surface-feeding sardines. …

Preaching On Social Media - via rottingthoughts.wordpress.com

We’ve all been there at some point. You log onto your favorite social media website like Facebook, and as you scroll through the many status updates in your news feed with highlights about your Aunt Martha’s cat, or your friend’s son that lost a tooth, you see this:

If you are irreligious like myself, all you see is this:…

Do Your Best And God Will Do The Rest

Quotation-Leo-Tolstoy-sacrifice-vanity-Meetville-Quotes-138006

For many, many years, I have always found an unending fount of devilish giggles whenever I read sappy church signs. You know, the ones that are thought up by the honorary witty member of the church congregation that plays on puns, abuses homophones, and loves to dabble in sappy poetry attempts. What better way to market a deity than…

War on Christmas: $80 blasphemous ugly sweater giveaway contest!

Christmas isn’t a big deal here in Taiwan, so it’s hard to get “in the season” or riled up by this “War on Christmas” controversy. But I want to celebrate the meaning of Christmas by giving away two things I really want, rather than buying them for myself.

First up is this amazing Christmas “ugly-sweater” with Baphomet on it.…

Dish Network forcing citizens to have Religious channels in 'packages'

I signed up for Dish Network (it's a satellite TV company) here in Yuma AZ. The new customer package was just $19.99/month and included extended Movie stations like HBO, Starz etc and entailed about 200 stations. After 3 months, "New Customer Promotions" ended & if I continued with Dish, I was forced to choose continuing that Extensive Package *at normal prices* (very co$$tly!) or choose another 'Package'. I chose the Budget Package which has about 50 stations and now costs me $40/month.…

Tough Problems, Even Tougher Solutions

Although the rate of black on black homicide dropped from the rates of crack-fueled 90's, according to FBI statistics murder of black males under 20 is still the number the number one cause of death, nor is it any surprise that the majority of those numbers are…

Theism and the art of Bullying

Recently it feels like I've been involved in too many discussions about what actually constitutes rape. Long, involved discussions that boil down to the argument that victims are somehow to blame for what happens to them, whether it's based on how they dress, what their behaviour was, if they did or didn't fight back and so on. I hit on a phrase that seemed to stop one friend in his thinking tracks: bullying someone into accepting sex is still rape, in exactly the same way that bullying…

Anne Graham Lotz Helping to Create a Boston Bible Party

Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, took time out from her swim in the shallow end of the Graham family gene pool this weekend to assure everyone that she would NEVER vote for an Atheist.



This isn’t particularly unusual. The Graham family has a long-held antipathy toward Atheists and other minorities. Son Franklin Graham entertains rather birther-like suspicions that maybe Barack Obama isn’t a Christian.

Will There Be A Coverup?

I have seen nothing on the news about the psychological history of the latest VT shooter.  It makes me wonder if we ever will.  I understand there is a lot of suffering going on and I do respect the privacy of the people who are victims of this horrific tragedy.  I am just wondering what motivated this killing.  My motivation to learn more is to see how this campus is targeted once again.   My suspicion is that the shooter was bullied or felt some kind of injustice.  Was there a violence…

Joel Olsteen's representative explains admission price.

This afternoon I was contacted by Andrea from Lakewood Church. The Houston Megachurch that Olsteen leads. When I asked her about the cost of the ticket. She explained that it covered the cost of paying

for the Scottrade Center employees and various things such as that. I tried to express my view that if this is a message that is good for everyone to hear that provision should be made for making the event

free. Andrea explained that they used to have free attendance at these events…

Chapter Three; THE RISE OF SCIENCE part seven

As mentioned before, the level of my religious experiences could fill many pages. So, while there is much more to be said, most is going to be skipped for now. I am just going to touch on a five main areas of why Christianity lost its hold on me.



1.The age of rocks on the Earth and the amount of time it takes for light to travel through space couldn't be rectified with text in the Bible. The best answer I received was, “God put all the things there when he created The Universe.” This… Continue

Who is the Enemy?

(This was written shortly after September 11, 2001, for a general audience.)


I've followed, more or less, the discussions about who the "enemy" is, in the "war on terrorism"; the "Clash of Civilizations" thesis, and so forth. I confess I think of it in different terms. The enemy is theocracy. It comes in Islamic, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, AND secular forms.


The freethinking, skeptical, scientific "frame of mind" is functionally and…

Atheist billboard defaced on N.C.'s Billy Graham Parkway

"Unknown vandals unhappy about atheists' billboard in Charlotte, N.C., spray-painted "Under God" on the ad, the city's atheist association discovered Monday. The defaced message will remain in place until after July 4, the group reports, which is the soonest that workers can furnish a fresh billboard image."… Continue

Chasers war on everything and how Australia once again over-reacts

For those not in the know, The chasers war on everything is an Australian comedy sketch series. It's filled with black comedy and frequently takes stabs at Aust politics and culture. Their latest show involved a gag where a charity "The make a wish foundation" was spoofed with the "Make a realistic wish foundation" which involved dying kids getting lame presents such as a stick. The response to the sketch was overwhelming with the show being forced off the air for two weeks, a Staff member at… Continue

A rant of my own...where would they stop? (abortion)

I keep hearing all these thumpers saying we should make abortion illegal. Their logic being, "It's taking a life, no different than a murdurer." My question is, how are they going to follow each person around and know if they terminated their pregnancies? Maybe they found a way to do it themselves. I never claimed to be the smartest person on earth, but I think making abortion illegal would be catastrophic. You would have young girls dying from back alley abortions. You would have all kinds of… Continue
