My debate, if it can be called that, with the vice president of CARM.org

So a little while ago I joined the forums at the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry (CARM) in the hopes of being able to actually have some productive discussions with Christians rather than the typical troll fests I often have on Sodahead. Ironically enough, there are far more trolls on CARM than there are on Sodahead, but I digress. After a few weeks of extremely bad arguments from the Christians on the forum, I eventually noticed that the vice president of CARM, Diane Sellner,…

Give Me Something I Can Feel

I have cancer. I wrestled with chemotherapy for six months then stopped treatment to gather my health. I mention this to tell a story that is related to my cancer. To keep my veins from collapsing during my treatment, a doctor placed a PowerPort on a large blood vessel just under my skin to allow treatment through the port. The surgery takes about 20 minutes. Before they put me under, the doctor asked if I minded if they prayed for me. Without hesitation I said that I didn't mind. After that,… Continue

Holy Newt! Or, Salamanders, Lizards and Geckos for President

If only other species could lead for awhile. . .since our species seems so inept.

I might actually suggest The Newts--gentle, deliberate, slow, peaceful, amphibious, non-theist. . .if Mr. Faith-of-Our-Flounders wasn't desecrating the word:

Holy Newt!

Willing to vote for an atheist President? Yes!



Every year since 1994 whenever I have taught Intro to Sociology I have administered a 15 item opinion survey. I have used this exercise primarily to talk about methodology, but also to explore trends in American popular opinion. In all years previous, three of the questions asked were "All factors being equal, I would feel comfortable voting for a [female, African-American, gay person] for President." This year I added "atheist" to this series of questions. The results of…

Obama Pic Decision Turns Back on Consitution and Judiciary



Three weeks after saying he would release the pictures, President Obama is moving to prevent the press from obtaining the pictures of the confirmed acts of torture. The courts have already ruled that any “secrecy” considerations are insufficient to overrule the first amendment right to free press. Obama, ignoring the court and taking a play, from the Bush Administration’s playbook, said today he would try to block the release of the… Continue

Poll - Which Other Books Should President Obama Swear On?

As expected, Barack Obama did have to swear the Oath of Office a second time, this time in a more intimate setting with just a few of the press corp. However, some Americans may feel the new President has made yet another blunder by not swearing on the Bible. Amazingly, given the God-squad in America, not a bible was found anywhere near the swearing in. As the TimesOnline reported, one blogger snarled "Expect a third oath when bitter small town gun- and Bible-toting America finds… Continue

Is Barack Obama an Atheist President?

Outwardly, Barack Obama projects an image of himself as a good Christian man. He goes to church on Sunday and proclaims "God bless America". This has me wondering, is this a means to an end, or is Barack a true believer? After all, the young Barack was raised by a woman who, if not an atheist, was at the very least, agnostic. Ann Dunham, his mother, was a freethinker who was unencumbered by strong ties to a particular religion. She introduced Barack not just to one particular religion, but to… Continue

No Smear too Ridiculous

By many accounts Rick Warren, bestselling author, Pastor of the Christian Saddleback Church and host to a recent Presidential debate, is a well meaning and sincere guy. Based on what he says though, I have to ask, “Is there any slam on non-believers that would be too ridiculous for him to make?”



Pastor Rick appears to pretty open to electing Presidential Candidates of differing religious perspectives. Taking him at his word, he could support candidates from faith traditions that vary… Continue

Quotes for Americans from the Founding Fathers

America was not founded as a christian nation. I've gathered some quotes on my regular blog from several of the Founding Fathers to help fellow Americans refute that false argument.

Selected quotes are from:

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) played a major role in the American Revolution. Atheist.

John Adams (1735-1826) The second President of the United States.

Thomas Jefferson… Continue
