I support Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!

Blasphemy is a victimless crime. In fact, blasphemy is a worthwhile pursuit in support of human rights and freedoms.



The religious taboo against depicting the religious person Mohammed does not, and cannot, have any rational or ethical justification. The only way to 'justify' such a taboo is through ostracism, intimidation, coercion, force, and ultimately violence. None of these 'justifications' are valid.

Starting a local meet up? Why not?

I've had the urge to meet up with local freethinkers and atheists for a while now. But the only local group is dedicated to humanism, and weren't so much into the socializing and enjoying a stimulating conversation type of thing.

Atheist Comedian/Songwriter Tim Minchin Could Have Christmas Hit

Wouldn't it be cool to have a freethinker's song remembered as a popular Christmas song? Help spread the word.

What is wonderism?

New post summarizing and describing What is wonderism?:



"I've gotten at least a few comments from people along the lines of, "I'm still not sure what to make of wonderism." In my attempts to explain it, I find myself writing longer and longer articles, with more and more detail. Sometimes it's harder to express an idea in just a few words, than in many words! Pascal's famous quote comes to mind:… Continue
