World of Batsh!t - #3: Chemtrailer Trash (CoolHardLogic - YouTube)

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bertold Brautigan Nov 9, 2014. 12 Replies

He's BACK!  After a somewhat sustained hiatus, CoolHardLogic has returned, and this time his Fleidermaus Scheiße takes the form of - Da, Da, DAAAAAAAAH!  Chemtrails!  "What are chemtrails?" you ask. …Continue

World of Batsh!t - #2: Moon Loons (CoolHardLogic - YouTube)

Started this discussion. Last reply by Pat Jun 10, 2014. 7 Replies

The moon's a balloon, so says the song.  Problem is, there's a guy out there, perhaps more than one, who want to claim that the moon is actually a PROJECTION (up around 55,000 ft, so he claims!), and…Continue

World of Batsh!t - #1: Sky Demons (CoolHardLogic - YouTube)

Started this discussion. Last reply by Loren Miller Mar 5, 2014. 6 Replies

We've all seen it - claims either so outrageous or so ignorant that they test the bounds of credibility, and they're usually, though not always associated with religion.  Well, it would seem that…Continue

What kind of smoke alarms do you have? (Daily Kos)

Started this discussion. Last reply by Loren Miller Feb 26, 2014. 4 Replies

I get an email of links to mostly political pieces from the Daily Kos every day, and that's how I became aware of the following.  Personally, I have no idea whether the three smoke detectors we have…Continue

About Me:
I'm a semi-retired / involuntarily unemployed electrical engineer who has a rather eclectic background, never mind a few miles on the odometer. I suppose I was an "apatheist" for quite a while - largely indifferent to the whole issue of gods - but after 9/11 and the more blatant appearance of evangelicals and Dominionists on the scene, my atheism has finally come to the fore.

Other interests include high-end stereo and home theater (and with that, CD and DVD collecting), BMWs and general car enthusiasm, single-malt whisky and biking.

I flatter myself that I know my way around Atheist Nexus at least reasonably well (I've been here since November of 2009), so if you need a hand with something, please don't hesitate to give a shout.

A winter poem for you Loren:

Winter is the king of showmen,
Turning tree stumps into snowmen
And houses into birthday cakes
And spreading sugar over lakes.
Smooth and clean and frosty white,
The world looks good enough to bite.
That’s the season to be young,
Catching snowflakes on your tongue.
Snow is snowy when it’s snowing,
I’m sorry it’s slushy when it’s going.
~Ogden Nash

Thanks, that's Ella. That photo is my laptop wallpaper. Btw, I bought VIP tickets to the PA atheist conference in September. VIP tics entitle one to extra hang-out time with the speakers. This year that includes Seth, Matt Dilahunty,and Aron Ra. I am very excited!

I can't believe that either.  We have both been on the site since the Mastodons bellowed their deep, sad, songs, across the American savannahs.

I'm glad you enjoyed your time here! Next time you should try the chili crab with hot buns; it's one of my favourite special-occasion dishes. (: Thank you for the welcome!

Thanks Loren, for the lead to The Midterm Elections Will Drastically Affect Humanists. I tried to get a link to the author and have a little chat. Then I decided I would do my thinking in public so others can smash my reasoning and tell me where I am all goofed up. But I don't have time to think it through right now. 

Basically, it is that Democrats have a tough time organizing ... the old herding cats syndrome ... and I see it as an organizational problem to be worked out through strategy. He hits the nail on the head. Now what?

Loren, is there a way to block a specific person from showing-up in my e-mail?

Oh Loren, you torture me. I love Kahlua and Cointreau and they play terrible tricks on my diabetes. Actually, the liver is what is thrown off track and creates pain like you would not believe. I love alcohol. I love beer. I really love Glenmorangie single malt Scotch. These are loves of the past. I'll do the coffee, whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. 

Thanks.

The Despicable Reality and Perfidy of the Islamic State

Posted on March 23, 2015 at 8:27am 33 Comments

I wouldn’t have believed it, but I’m pissed off about persecuted Christians.  Whoa, you’re saying, Loren’s lost his grip on reality.  No, I haven’t.  I just wonder if you can maintain YOUR grip on your temper, having seen this CBS News 60 Minutes report by Lara Logan.



American Christians make foolish noises about being persecuted.  Iraqi Christians ARE being persecuted for…

A Non-Trivial Question Regarding a Non-Trivial Religion

Posted on February 10, 2015 at 8:50am 18 Comments

I have a few questions, none of which are meant to be rhetorical:

  • If Islam demands the death penalty for apostasy, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam says that women must be veiled, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam cannot value women as equals to men, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam cannot tolerate the practice of freedom of speech, why should we tolerate Islam?
  • If Islam is determined to dominate the world, why should we…

Scott Pelley on Charlie Hebdo, Terrorism, and the Press

Posted on January 10, 2015 at 7:56am 12 Comments

It isn't very often that I hear Scott Pelley offer an op-ed piece as a part of a news broadcast.  So when he closed the CBS Evening News of Friday, 9 January, 2015 with his observations on the attacks in Paris and how freedom of the press figures into the whole situation of terrorism, I thought it was notable enough to make mention of it here.  Mr. Pelley makes simple, straightforward points which resonate in the current time, and I believe his words are worthy of your attention. …

The Science / Religion Dichotomy – Another View

Posted on December 18, 2014 at 11:11am 4 Comments

Christianity insists on dependence on its god and its savior.  Indeed, it demands submission to that supreme being, saying “thy will be done.”  Islam is not only no different, the very word means “submission.”  Both expect the believer to trust in Yahweh or Allah to provide for them and nurture them and bring meaning to their lives.  The price for that nurturance, though, is utter obedience without question.  One of the immediate consequences of such an attitude is vulnerability to…
