AtheistTech's Blog (57)

Do you remember this...

Another title to this blog might be: The first century politics of "Turn the other cheek"

Here is a link from a religious website to prove you can actually learn something from religious people: http://www.faithfirstmedia.com/apps/blog/show/1394928-a-theology-of-peace-part-four-turning-the-other-cheek

It tells you all about it. I didn't read…

Religion's Word Games

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…

How do you feel about today's state of the government and the politics that run it?

I feel disgusted. You probably do too.

I watched this week's episode of Bill Moyers and Company with their guest, Marty Kaplan (found here: http://billmoyers.com/episode/full-show-big-money-big-media-big-trouble/).

In it, Marty Kaplan said; "People say they know it's a con, just as they say that they are not being swayed by the ads for products that they see on television. If…

Cult and Religion compared.

Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary, 11th Edition definition of cult:

It is a bit ambiguous, but I think you will see how it relates to the word religion.

Religious proof that atheists are "Christian"

This painful video is about 56 minutes long. For the great majority of it, Thunderf00t was sincerely trying to educate this Christian, Eric. Eric seemed to have a different goal which did not allow him to see what Thunderf00t was trying to convey. Then at then end, out of frustration, Thunderf00t ceased to be "Christian" and took the roll of fundie and showed by example what Eric was doing. Eric still did not see the light. But it was undeniable proof that Thunderf00t did unto his brother…

Richard Feynman's simple but far ranging idea...

I was looking at a list of videos I wanted to watch. At first, I was looking at them one by one and came across this title:

Richard Dawkins: Genius Of Darwin 1%3 Life, Darwin & Everything-lSYREfaZP1U

I couldn't figure out what the 1%3 meant in the title. Someone smarter than me could pick it off right away, but an average person may have a bit of trouble. So, for an average person to be as smart as Richard Feynman, we need a "trick". I will show you the illustration of…

Try this on for size:

Is it really a bad or useless thing to look for a utopia that we can realistically achieve? Or is it that our entire culture (theists and non-theists included) is under the theists' spell that anything other than God is bad? That man is corrupt and can ammount to nothing without God?

Is it reality to think we can do better than what we've done so far? You know, build on the shoulders of giants? Theists fight for the status quo or if there is to be change, for the change to take us…

I have a crazy idea.

When a man marries a woman, often, she takes on his last name or more recently a combination of his and her last names or in rarer instances, she keeps her own last name.

My idea fits man-woman, man-man, and woman-woman marriages. 

Would you agree that a marriage is a sort of joining of two lives?

That thought led me to my crazy idea. In honor of the love shared and the long term commitment to each other, why not both partners take a completely new name that…

Can you tell me what a feeling is?

You can take any feeling, but here I will take the feeling of anger as an example. The next sentence is an everyday simple sentence:

He is angry.

You would be more accurate to say: He looks like I do when I'm angry.

You could say I have a sick feeling in my stomach when I am angry. Or, I have a tension headache when I am angry. Or, I shake like a leaf because of the adrenaline when I am angry. Or, I want to hurt him when I am angry.

Did you…

What I found while looking for evidence on the Internet of a persistent rumor.

First the rumor and the fact that I did not find any supporting evidence for it: Pharmaceutical companies are actively suppressing cures in favor of treatment therapies for economic reasons.

What I found was an August 2011 report on the results of a clinical trail where they used T-cells from the patients' own blood to modify the…

I read and hear quite a lot about donations for cancer research.

I think that donating to a cause like looking for the cure to cancer, aids, diabetes, and many others is a very noble and caring gesture. But today, a thought popped into my head that stems from a cynical coversation about the government I just had.

That thought was: Who is doing the research and where are they doing the research?

We all know that pharmaceutical companies are in it for profit. Are they controlling the majority of the research? If so, does anyone know which…
