Watching Star Trek Into Darkness awoke the part of me that wants to use dental floss as a garrotte, my impotent rage. Impotent,…Continue
How much proof does someone need to prove that another person is being inappropriate (in a sexual manner) at work? Where exactly is the line? Just wondering ...
A British child murdered for her organs in India, a country with nearly 1.5 billion people!
This is a most upsetting story. We should understand that there is a single thread in this diabolical, sociopathic, greed-driven system. A system which is controlled by a collective, or "Cabal", who's families span at least a millenia in history. These men, with power, and wealth beyond imagination, have their hands in everything…Continue

Let's get something straight.
Not everyone that's perceived as a bitch is actually unhappy.
Let's get another thing straight.
I'm a bitch.
Knowing just what to say and when to say it is a talent of mine.
If the words I type piss you off, usually that was my exact intention. Thanks for playing.
Please don't mistake my mockery for misery. I'm not unhappy, in fact, I'm laughing at you right…Continue

A Particle Man's Life
is Always Intense
How can a pair of tiny particles remain connected, remain related, and perfectly responsive to each other, in spite of being separated beyond their ability to communicate at subluminal speeds? It’s as if a pair of twins are born but are never truly separate beings. They…

Angry with some skeptics' insistence that the skeptical movement should leave religion alone, that science can say nothing about supernatural claims, PZ Myers announces his divorce from the skeptic movement. Jack Scanlan…Continue
Since man as discovered his consciousness and began to live in groups, he has thought and wondered about the beauty of nature, the vastness of space and immensity of time. Since then he has searched for a creator of this universe and all its constituents. This was mans first perception about God, ‘the creator’. As time passed by man discovered his ignorance about certain things that surrounded him thus he attributed most things beyond his comprehension or understanding to…Continue

This past week, in a small corner of the news there was information about a bombing of a Church in a small community near Arusha, Tanzania. Several locals along with a handful of Saudi nationals have been arrested as responsible. The target apparently was the Archbishop of Arusha, a man whom I know personally and whose installation I attended some years back in Tanzania. Many innocent people were hurt, who were just gathered as a community to dedicate a new church building they had…Continue

"My friends joke that I am a coconut: brown on the outside, but white on the inside." - Alom Shaha, The Young Atheist's Handbook.
So, I find that being in the closet sucks. Too much energy and shame gets devoted to pretending I am someone I'm not.
I want out of the lie.
Problem is...I have insanely religious extended family. And I don't care to argue with them about hell-fire, nurture vs. nature, scripture, or praying away the gay.
They're visiting this week. I'm not going to make an announcement or take people aside to talk about it. I've decided not to hide all my queer stuff (books, pictures,…Continue
I've been reading over every ones comments, and I don't agree with all of it; I do agree that maybe I need to change the way I present things or ideas to people. It was easier before it got so hard (duh) ...I think I'm going through a very militant phase and feel desolated from the rest of the world because I'm stuck in the South. I took some advice and deleted people from my facebook. Now, I'm just going to figure out a way to better articulate myself. I'm generally a pretty nice person,…Continue
I wanted to contribute my current day-to-day experience which shares much in common with those posting and agreeing that "They Can't Live On This Planet Anymore!" and to offer what helps me through it every day.
When I'm not developing lectures and multimedia pieces for Innerspace Labs, (please see my profile for fun bits about that!), I pay the rent working as a supervisor in a print center.
It is, indeed a struggle, as my workplace is made up of proudly fundamentalist…Continue
Like...I don't even know where to start with people. The ignorance is starting to give me horrible headaches. I know like four people who are atheist. I'm in a deep sea of water and sometimes it feels like I'm drowning. My Facebook...So much fighting.
