Why you left your religion.
To paraphrase Good Omens, I didn't so much fall as saunter downwards. Organized religion clearly made no sense and didn't even have a hint of honesty or truth to it. From there it wasn't long before I realized that neither the Bible, nor the stories I had been told as a child had any actual evidence backing them up. And when I really started looking at religion critically, none of it did.

Road Trip!

Posted on October 14, 2009 at 4:00pm 4 Comments

I just saw this about the Smithsonian's new Human Origins hall and thought .... "I wonder how many people on T|A would like to see that?"



So, anyone feel like setting up a field trip to visit the Smithsonian in March? Kind of like the trip the SSA recently took to Ken Ham's Creation 'Museum', only with actual science and knowledge.



Edit: Perhaps I should say, if such… Continue

An Officer's Experience in Our Christian Military

Posted on August 20, 2009 at 1:00pm 5 Comments

This was posted on the blog Dispatches From The Culture Wars, which is written by Ed Brayton.



It's a truly disheartening and depressing comment on the state of our military, and the attempts (mostly successful it seems) to turn it into God's Personal Army Against The Infidel.

Forty years since the first human being set foot upon another world.

Forty years since we took that first step, became for the first time a species that had truly left its home and set forth into the universe at large.

Forty years since the world hung by a thread, breathlessly watching TV or listening to the radio, the attention of the planet focused on that tiny craft a quarter of a million miles away.



Forty years. And in honor of that momentous day, I jotted this down, to… Continue

There is an excellent article on RichardDakwins.net written by Marshall Evans, about his travels from a deep fundamentalist family to atheism. I most heartily recommend that you read it.

Thanks, I missed that comment from January.

Have you taken note to the coincidences and strange pairings in Life. For instance when there's a major airline disaster another one follows in near proximity. Or when you're having a conversation the television completes your sentence or parrots it. Or, you look at your watch and the same time appears again and again in the course of days. Or when you see some one with a black finger nail (for example, it could be anything), in the course of time you have one also, as if it were an omen.

As with quantum mechanics I believe in spooky action at a distance and all events seem connected on some level. Maybe a telltale sign of the holographic universe.

Thank you, Dave.  I noticed that it appeared I was now in a more appropriate space.
