It was a very sad time for me when I heard the news about the death of Frank Zappa in 1993 from cancer.
His sarcastic humor and incredible musical ability with a completely non-commercial outlook on the entire music industry gave me some of my outlook on life and skepticism.
He was always skeptical of everything and shunned commercialism.
Frank Zappa epitomized the Social and political Skepticism… Continue

The President, he's got his war,
Folks don't know just what it's for,
Nobody gives us rhyme or reason,
Have one doubt, they call it treason,
We're chicken-feathers, all without one gut
Tryin' to make it real — compared to what?
When Les McCann and Eddie Harris… Continue

I received the following in an email, with a request that include it in a blog post. I thought it was worth sharing for its well thought out ideas that would be good for our country. However, when I expressed my doubts, to the sender, about the lack of members of congress lining up to jump on the bandwagon he had this to say.
It's a pipe dream. Still, there's no harm in spreading it around. The more people that see it, the better the chances that some of them will say something… Continue

Speaking with God seems to be quite common among religionists. It would seem that in these conversations the directions for solving world hunger, curing cancer and a host of other diseases might be a topic, instead of new ways to bilk Barnum's favorite group.
With that type of connection, it would seem that God might at least pass along a few hints and tips about parting waters or stopping the sun so we could have daylight longer and work 24 hours to catch up on the bills. Of course,… Continue

Countdown to Zero, a documentary about the history of nuclear weapons, lays out the most non-sensationalized, perfectly rational argument for complete nuclear disarmament I have ever seen presented on screen or off. Many of the world’s nuclear experts show that the idea of safety behind a nuke is nothing more than a myth that requires faith.

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of teachers, elders or wise men.
Believe only after careful observation and analysis.
When you find that it agrees with reason… Continue

Dear Jesus, I know you will never get this message as you have been in your grave for some time. However, I like to play make-believe and pretend that you are still well and alive and are reading this message. So… How are you? How have you been? What have you been up to? Hey, do you have any influence over what Santa will bring me this Christmas? He hasn’t brought me anything ever since I moved away from my parents. I have been eating your body and blood, is that cool with you? Did you hear my… Continue

I take issue with the bandying about of the phrase, “meant to be.” When most people hear it, they let it sink into their brain as if it must be an absolute truth. It clearly has ties to religious thinking, and yet, like the concept of “soul mates”, it seems to have gained a new place in peoples' minds. I know people who believe in god but don't believe in “meant to be.” I know people who believe in “meant to be” but not god. I know people who believe in both, and of course, people like myself… Continue

n the last week, California has seen two violations of human rights. The first being the California Supreme Court upholding Prop 8, and the other in San Diego County where a families right to assemble for a bible study has been violated. (I know Im shocked I am defending them too.. but they have that right)
So here is my question... Which Constitution has the last say? A States Constitution? or the US Constitution?
Naturally I make my argument in my blog:… Continue

they are promoting his book and discuss a range of topics from galactic civilizations, teleportation, the big bang, string theory, the mind vs. computers, and tons of other fun, mind blowing stuff.

Not that anyone really cares that much, but i have decided its time to go to the cheapest clothing store around, get some checkered pants, some suspenders to help hold them up to my chest, a nice golfers cap, and i'm going to start walking even slower than i already do around town.
A small side note on things that i'm proud of at the age of 30:
1. i have been straight edge for 13 years, for those of you who don't know, it is complete abstinence from any substances that can… Continue

Understanding causality, who can justify condemning believers for believing, since they were after all, shaped, molded, and ultimately conditioned to believe just as non-believers where conditioned to not believe? Yet, we just can’t stand by watching them fritter their lives away being motivated, moved, and ultimately being hijacked by this contagious and dangerous god meme. Why can’t we? Because to survive as a species we need to acknowledge and address reality. We can’t just stand by, because… Continue
