Christianity does not teach morality

Many of the Christians I have regular contact with are moral despite their belief in their Bible. They praise their god and tell me that the instructions for performing forced abortions, all the killings, and the rejection of homosexuals are things of the past that have nothing to do with good Christians of today. It's like these Christians recognize those parts of their Holy Bible that are incompatible with morality and label those parts as "just misinterpreted" or "from another time". They…See More

I'm an immoral believer in nothing? Jerks.

Being treated as if I believe in nothing and considered immoral because I’m an atheist is frustrating, but it really shows me who’s paying attention, who’s arrogant, and who’s clueless about reality. Piers Anthony wrote about a kind of atheist in “On A Pale Horse,” completely misrepresenting atheism if his logic were applied to the real world, though it made sense in his fictional world of magic and magical beings. I think this is a common mistake people make about atheism and atheists. The…See More

Isolationist Encounters

Posted on May 13, 2012 at 1:48pm 1 Comment

Generally speaking, we're all ignorant of one or more topic. Discourse, research, and cosmopolitan gossip are sure fire ways of educating ourselves. But lately, and it may be just me noticing it more, people have been watching too much F0X News, associating with Tea Party members, and listening to devout Ron Paul disciples. They purposefully omit facts with pull verbal stunts reminiscent of Pascal's Wager, as if there are only two possible answers to all questions. 

The color red-green

Posted on February 27, 2012 at 12:54am 1 Comment

I'm geeking out over a little bit of science I recently learned:

The 3 color sensitive cell types in our eyes allow us to see Red, Green, and Blue color wavelengths, mixing and matching to give us the rainbow. But there's a flaw in our ability to detect what we perceive as opposing colors such as Red and Green. To our eyes, mixing red and green pigments gives us grey, not the color Red-Green. Our eyes cannot see red-green as a color. Dogs have a 2 color system, meaning they still see…

health care fears rights and privileges

Posted on January 19, 2012 at 11:33am 1 Comment

I was on the fence about some of the arguments over bleeding heart verses fiscal conservation, until I gave it some thought about what conditions would be like without enough health care. I think I scared myself.



Health care being a right or a privilege seems to be asking the wrong question. If you really think you live on an island that has no disease you’re delusional. Poor health in just 1 individual can lead to a few concerned individuals attempting to care for the ill,…
