"Too funny! I know this is an old thread, but I'm trying hard to keep my chest from exploding, I  was laughing so hard.  Would that count? My chest exploding? Probably not."

the brain is fucking amazing

Everything we sense, think, feel, & dream all comes down to a bunch of impulses and chemicals in the brain? The idea used to sadden me. But now I think, "The brain can do ALL THAT?! That's fucking AMAZING!!"

"And that is what I acknowledged: people can be good and behave like decent human beings despite their religions being unethical, like following kosher/ halal laws for example or plain silly, like Wiccan woo."

What I *do* like about religions

It's a common misconception (not to mention a sweeping generalization) that all atheists hate everything about religion.  I for one can say that that isn't so.  So in hopes of building bridges--and being less of the "negative nancy" I seem to have been lately--I thought I'd write a list of things that I do like about various religions, and I encourage commenters to do the same.  After all, we're all sharing this tiny pale blue dot together. I like Christmas.  That's an easy one.  I like that…See More

Exclusion really bites.

Posted on February 11, 2011 at 2:39pm 2 Comments

I found an online acquaintance in a roundabout way on LiveJournal (yes, that dinosaur) and sent her a friend request.  I'd have been fine with the first part of her explanation for declining (it's only my RL face-to-face circle of friends, nothing personal).  But what stung was what she went on to say:

We're all pagans, Dionysians, Kemetics, polydiests, or combination of the four. Oh, and one very open minded Christian. So, it's not your gang of folks and subject…

Smite Check!

First thing first: How are we doing on the smitings?

 

I had given ample opportunity for smitage: I flew from Portland ME to Columbus OH in January, then drove back across New York (during a Lake Effect snowstorm I'll add!) and didn't even have anything that can remotely be construed as a smiting.  Not a…

You see, when the original zodiac was…
