One day I realized just why religious people, or that fraction of “Believers” hate atheists, is that they are literally scared of us.
They are simply afraid that their beliefs will be shown to be false.
And with that, the made up afterlife will not be there for them.
There is no great beyond.
There isn’t a “higher order” or that they are the “Chosen” of the all mighty.
Their lives are, at least in their eyes, limited, or…Continue
“In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,
You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade…
On the Avenue, Fifth Avenue, photographers will snap us
And you’ll find that you’re in the rotogravure…”

Dallas--A Dallas woman who kicked and beat her 2-year-old daughter and superglued her hands to a wall of their apartment recently received a 99-year prison sentence. This one…
Whether you used to believe in Jesus or Yahweh, Mohammed or Allah, Krishna or Zeus, I can assure you that none exist. I will even take you further than that and guarantee they do not exist. It is all about your perception of the concept that a god/goddess is. Not a…Continue
Pennsylvania 'Craigslist killer' says she slayed dozens more across U.S. as part of satanic cult: report
My point is the failure of the educational system is leading to horror and chaos. Miranda Barbour was 19 years old when she and she husband committed this horrific “thrill murder.” At 19, she should have been studying science, history, comparative religion and literature. An educated mind would dismiss “Satanic cult”…Continue
I have been often troubled by the many mortal human attitudes and behaviors many different deities have taken on in various holy texts. Petty emotions like jealously, bigotry, hate, anger, and lust, to name a few. All of these…Continue
Over the course of the past two weeks, I have undergone training courses at my new employer's office. Typically, you get to meet everyone you will be working with, and I had a couple days of shadow training. Essentially, I was riding along side my trainer, watching how she…Continue
But it's not the usual reasons. Or maybe it is. In reverse. Or whatever.
Mondays are the worst because I'm alone again! The family is home on weekends. Usually we have good weekends. But then comes Monday.
My day so far:
- woke up real early, around four.
- made coffee
- woke the kids up after six.
- went to tell my wife good morning around seven as she got ready for work.
- told the wife and kids goodbye and watched, once again, as they…Continue
What the hell, I have nothing better to do today than speak my mind a bit. I really haven't written anything at all anywhere in a very long time. So here goes...
The biggest problem with humans is that they're so godlessdamned chicken shit. I mean really. When human kind learned to think the first thing he did was recognize danger and he ran like hell. And people are still running. And hiding. It drives me nuts. This is the real reason I just quit and don't really give two…Continue
I was standing in the check-out line at the local Walmart (in Central City,Ky) when the line was stopped. The cashier refused to check the lady ahead of me because she was buying beer. Me, being me, asked what the problem was? The clerk said she couldn't scan the beer because "It"s against my religious convictions". So the lady with the beer, and I, had to wait until a manager was called up to scan the beer onto the ticket.
I laughed about it. It's so outlandish! So, the…Continue

As a humanist, it is often difficult to remain mute when Christian religionists start quoting the Bible to support everything from bad weather to alien sightings. Since the Bible is its own proof source those ignorant of its roots have no idea to its authenticity or lack thereof. One need not go very deep into the…Continue

At last, I have achieved my goal!
I recently had a comment exchange on Deviant Art:
http://pjarrett.deviantart.com/ (not a safe site, as my McAfee always reminds me...but they seem to have solved some of their problems...be careful, in spite of its name "Deviant Art" they allow underaged children to post right along with adults! If you're leary of the site...which I can't say I blame you...try my other blog at …Continue

Human language is much older than 5000 years old. For all we know, religion is about as old as old as human language. We can all agree that religion has had a very long time to influence the evolution of human language. I say it is about time non-religious humans take control over the evolution of the human language.
I will give you just one example of what religion has done to our human language:
Think about the definition of love. When I say the word love, what am I talking…
