Some Reasons Why I Am An Atheist

First off, I'd like to say that if anyone could give me hard evidence of the existence of

a goD and this evidence could be tested by Scientists and proven to be true then I

would crawl through 100 miles of razor sharp glass just to kiss goDs feet. Simply

put, I am open minded to a certain point. The bIBLE can not be used as hard

evidence because it is a book of stories written 2000+ years ago, by humans that

were very ignorant of the reality around them. Plus, many of the…

Atheism and Child Abuse...not what you think!

The title of this blog is entirely misleading.  But I could not figure out what else to use so there it is.  Read on...

I was born with something in my gut, something I'll call a "savior complex," for want of better words.  I've never been a bawl-bag of compassion but somewhere deeper inside I've always cared.  And I've been cursed with the ability to see people hurting.  For some thirty years or so I thought the answer to fixing people's suffering was god.  I was stupid, of course,…

Texas GOP: Another Step Toward Theocracy?

I am used to some closed-minded rhetoric (from both sides of the aisle, sometimes) concerning matters that I find important. It's usually one or two wing-nutty individuals like Michelle Bachmann or Sarah Palin who set me off, when they spout some inane statement about subjects like homosexuality or secular government. I try not to habitually make statements dismissing an entire political… Continue

Humor: One Texas Soldier

A large group of Taliban soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune. "One Texas soldier is better than ten Taliban". The Taliban commander quickly sends 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.



The voice then calls out "One Texan is better than one hundred Taliban". Furious, the Taliban commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge… Continue

Commit a crime? Plead religion!

AN: I wrote an advertisement for the religious plea in the voice of a lawyer or something. My cynicism glad was about to burst, so I had to write this. Of course, it can also be read and commented upon at Good reason News.



Have you committed a crime, but now the courts want to punish you? How dare they!? Maybe it's time… Continue

Creationist Boob in the Hot Seat in Texas

Ah, Don McLeroy, the creationist dentist and scourge of secular Texans. Don is in a lot of trouble you see, after thrusting Texas into the national spot light when he pushed for looser language in the education standards that would allow creationism in the classroom. More

Tray Tables Up! Flights of nonsense landing in Texas schools

texflag32988 The next act in the long and ugly creationist end-game will take place in Texas. After the previous two acts, my confidence is high.



One of my dearest hopes for the next generation is that they get a real shot at understanding evolution. My own teenage understanding of the theory was fuzzy around the edges, since we touched on it for all of about eight minutes in high school. I didn't encounter it again until Anthro 1 at Berkeley--at which point it dazzled me so much I… Continue

Alex,

A writer in your previous town of resident wrote a gem of an editorial about the presidential hopefuls' religious pissing contest. I was surprised something like this could come out of Texas.

Maybe Alabama will be next.

Maybe not.
