A Message in Time

Someday, I will no longer be alive to walk this Earth, and like a lot of other people, I want to leave a unique legacy  behind that will keep my loved ones and my family members thinking about me, even when my body has long turned into dust. This story will be my story. Imagine being able to see the lives of your loved ones from an accelerated perspective. Imagine waking up one day and seeing an entire year of your loved one elapsing an entire year. On the first day, your loved one was in his…See More

"I think it's also important to remember that you can come to Atheism by trying to disprove these doubts as well as by going against your faith. Anything that starts a search for truth has got to be a good thing."

"well, i think the billboards are more about drawing attention for closeted atheists, because if you are a christian, and we are trying to make you realize the truth, a simple statement like that isn't going to do a thing."

How introducing 'doubt' might be a better strategy for Atheism than any billboard that says there is no god.

After looking back on my own deconversion from Christianity, I've realized that if someone approached me during the days that I still believed in the Christian faith and told me that there was no god, I would have balked at them and politely told them to go to hell. Now that I'm a devout Atheist, I often asked myself how did I go from being a Southern Baptist Christian to a rational, scientifically-minded Atheist.It wasn't a billboard that converted me. It definitely wasn't a bunch of Atheists…See More

Philip Laureano commented on Jessica Arcega's blog post 'The fun of being a Filipino atheist'
"The fun part about being a Filipino Atheist is that you find yourself knowing more biblical scripture than even your religious counterparts. It's always fun to quote the parts of Leviticus that mention slavery whenever they say that the bible…"

A (Biological) Purpose-Driven Life

Posted on February 18, 2010 at 10:25am 16 Comments

Unlike religion, science makes a simple and rational case about what we should do with our lives, and despite the gray matter that resides inside our skulls, we have evolved from lesser organisms to fulfill some very simple duties:



1. We eat.

2. We sleep.

3. We fuck.

4. We shit.

5. We have kids.

6. We die.



After several million years of evolution, humanity's basic role is to fulfill those six biological functions in spite of whatever beliefs (or… Continue

Converting to Apatheism.

Posted on January 26, 2010 at 6:32pm 17 Comments

Ok, I admit it. I'm becoming more an Apatheist rather than an Atheist. The more I live my life, the more that I realize just how irrelevant the question of whether or not a deity really exists plays a role in my day to day life.



Do I believe that a 'god' exists? Probably not. But then again, answering the question doesn't really play much of a role in my life when you compare it to the mundane things that I still have to do in my life--like work, pay my bills, pay taxes, and spend… Continue

A 'Heaven' for This Atheist.

Posted on December 18, 2009 at 2:50am 2 Comments

I used to play video games all the time when I was a little kid. I was utterly fascinated with all the possibilities that existed in whatever video game that I was playing at the time. Back then, my goal in every one of those video games that I played was to explore and do everything that I could possibly do before I realized that I had done everything that could have possibly done and knew that somehow, the game had to end. Despite all my efforts, I knew that no matter what I did that game… Continue
