Politics

I often hear the question or a suggestion that atheists get involved in the political process.Here are my reasons for thinking this is a really bad idea. First of all politics is like walking through a deep mud puddle. There is just no way to do it without getting dirty.Politics in our strange form of democracy (really a plutocracy) is not base on truth, facts, science, critical thinking or in the best interests of the country or its' citizens. Politics in America is ruled by profits, greed,…See More

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
As many I started out in a very religious home. I just seemed to always have questions. Questions that led me through a long study of many religions and history. That and a facination with science has now answered many of my questions. But my goal in life is to keep on learning and asking the hard questions.

53-58
Why are you here?
To explore new avenues of knowlege.
Why you left your religion.
I never could accept the idea of faith. I aways had to seek out the answers. I could not find a religion that could answer all my questions and I was not going to go blindly on faith. I always saw faith as the pitfalls others had made. Searching and learning with the mind open was not really welcome in most religions. That is why I never stayed long.

Apologist's Arguments Fail

Posted on July 8, 2010 at 1:31am 1 Comment



Before we look at bible contradictions we first have to address the issues of bible inerrancy and apologetics.



First inerrancy; there are two main views when addressing the accuracy of the bible. One group of Christians believe that the bible is divinely inspired by God and its message has been molded and shaped by…

I started out on BMX as a kid, moved on to mountain biking. Took a 15 year hiatus (marriage), now back on it for a couple years. About three months ago I got a road bike for exercise in anticipation of not being able to run after my knee surgery in late April. I have a cruiser, a 5in. full suspension GT Force MB, and a Specialized Allez Epic that is wicked light.

Hi again Dennis! I found the logo. Very cool! I like the colors and professional look. You did notice they were upright bikes on the logo? One day I will have more time to get into these discussion groups. On favorite rides, I have like 20 of them. It's more the feel when you're there riding it than the trail itself. Sure features play a role. The tight hairpin at mile marker 302 on White Spar State Route 89 south of Prescott does it for me as a road ride.

Hi Dennis! I haven't learned my way around this site much yet and I haven't figured out how to view the logo for the cycling athiests group so let me know where to find it and I'll check it out.

Dennis:
I have had the Volae for about 2 weeks now. The learning curve was short. I have no problem getting going from even a slight uphill stop. Steering is fun except for the occasional heel strike. I have rear-view mirrors on order along with a back of the mesh seat bag for a hydration bladder and water bottles. I did push it to hard the first day and hurt my knees a little but that has resolved. I'm doing 10 miles a day slightly more slowly than my diamond frame but figure within a couple of months I can do a short 4 day weekend 200 mile tour. Its very easy on my back, shoulders, and wrists. Once I get my bent legs I will start pushing up my speed. It is a beautiful machine and I am enjoying it a lot. Thanks for the recommendation.

I ordered the Vloae Expedition today. Overall it looks better than the Rans and your input really helped. I'll let you know when I get it what I think.

Cycling Shorts? Not For These Sexy Riders!

Yes, that’s right, the 7th annual World Naked Bike Ride is approaching and you won’t need any cycling shorts or Lance Armstrong cycling clothes for this sexy (maybe) extravaganza.

Dennis,
Thanks for the advice on the Volae bikes. I was unaware of them. The Rans Enduro I'm looking at has a 43" wheelbase, weighs a little less than the Volae at 30 lbs (same 4130 Cromaloy frame material). The Rans has a lower crankset with 22 being the smallest chainring. The biggest difference I see is that the Volae has better wheels (dual 26") and disc brakes. What is your feeling regarding the dual 26" wheels vs 26" rear and 20" front (other than the fact that on tour you have two tube/tires sizes to carry)?
Thanks for any and all imput!!

Hi Dennis:
Thanks for the friend request. I am looking at getting a Rans Enduro or a Bachetta Gir(o 20. I have a guy here in Alameda (Zach Kaplan) who is all over the BentRider and Bike Forums who is going to show them to me. I was originally interested in a LWB but he is of the opinion that a SWB is probably better for touring?? Any thoughts?
