What are the benefits of Atheism?

Recently, in chat, someone pointed out that there are fewer female than male Atheists.  That prompted a comment on sexual differentiation of intelligence.  I suggest that most women make the best…Continue

Flies & Freewill

Posted on July 14, 2014 at 11:41pm 89 Comments

Yesterday, while seated, I began to reach down for my backpack when a fly landed on my knee.  My reach was instantly interrupted as my hand froze beside me just slightly higher than my thigh. All my intention became focussed on swatting that fly, and my hand began to move ever so slowly and evenly towards the fly on my knee, maintaining a perfectly consistent distance above my thigh of about three inches.

As my hand slowly glided forward I realized that…

Christianity Refutes Itself

Posted on December 23, 2012 at 11:00pm 66 Comments

A narrative essay by – Heather Spoonheim

Christianity is an intellectually repugnant worldview. To subscribe to it is to abandon all reason – and that is why it is so difficult to extract from the psyche of those infected by its doctrines. Once one has thoroughly abandoned reason, they are no longer sentient beings in any meaningful sense of the phrase; they become nothing…

Disciples of Change

A narrative essay by – Heather Spoonheim

I often encounter people who find it offensive that I haven’t subscribed to the Climate Change bandwagon. To be frank, that is where the conversation typically ends, because such people rarely have anything more to bring to the discussion than the average theist. The problem that always arises in those situations is the…

Rational Thought - An Atheist Hymn

Rational Thought - An Atheist Hymn by Heather Spoonheim

(Sung to the tune of Amazing Grace)



Rational Thought, how pow-er-ful

That saved an ape like me

I once was lost but now am found

Was blind, but now I see



T'was Thought that freed my mind from fear

Free Thought, just so relieving

How precious did my own thoughts appear

The hour I stopped… Continue

Hey no problem. It was my pleasure. I like your posts.

I don't think I thanked you for adding me as a friend. I am clueless on social media and am still figuring out protocols and out to make this actually work without losing things in virtual hyperspace. Don't think I mentioned this: I have been in the middle of a divorce for the past year, but before the current unpleasantness forced me to suspend operations, I also brewed my own. I hope to resume someday soon. I tend toward the extremes: big malty stouts and IPA's.

I always thought of myself as a climate change disciple but after reading your post I discovered that I am a climate change heathen. I am a big fan of Stewart Brand and believe that the only rational answer is nuclear energy. I know that we in the west are too stupid to figure this out but I am confident that the Chinese or Indians will save us. Or maybe the Norwegians - they're working on a thorium MSR. Hope you don't mind me posting on your page but you were a "featured" member, and hell, you brew your own. How could I resist?
