I just got off the phone, having talked with my mother at length about, mostly, Christianity. I don't know how we got on the topic but it was a great conversation. It was nice to talk about something on an intellectual level, for a change, instead of whatever has gone wrong with whomever in the family. I cannot believe what she just told me. She asked me if she ever told me when she knew Christianity was over for her. She hadn't, and I was afraid of what I was going to hear.
This is some thing I wish more people would realize.
The Lion’s Den
Daniel 4:4 to 12:13
4:4 King Neb dreamed again and this time he remembered what it was about. It was a tree. The tree was a giant beautiful tree that everyone loved. All the people and animals lived together in and under and around the tree. But then a scary messenger appeared from some vague alternate dimension and began…

Please let me know if I have repeated any or left any out.
About 2 weeks ago I did post on my status a petition to the Royal Society to start a debate on resetting the calender to reflect our true heritage.
The text of the petition has been altered slightly and I request you to again append your signatures. And I apologize to those who had signed it.
Nothing much may come from it, but I think it will start a discussion that all of us alive today and who are secular would be interested in. There is nothing about 1 BC and 1 AD that…Continue
The Holy Davidic Covenant for Davenism
Book Of Geladrin 1:1
1Oh Holy creature Geladrin. Atone us with your Holiness. 2Yes, this is what the Holy must do on the day of Segedrum, 3Segedrum the time of of the 3rd Apexed Time Transreformation. 4These souls before me, are sacred and holy. 5Yay, we exclaim to your Holiness oh Tough that Lay on the Mountain of Holy. 6“Yes here now beneath me, You are sacred and holy. 7But do not taint yourself by worshiping only I, Geladrin Son…
Every time my boyfriend meets someone new, he tells that person that I am Wiccan. There are several reasons this is not good! First and most importantly, I am not Wiccan, I am Atheist I believe in some of the principals of a variety of faiths/or traditions, but the basis of those beliefs is not religious, rather it is humanistic. It is the basic principals most humans value, things like trying to be kind to others, not lieing, being ethical, working hard, trying to learn new things,…Continue
most men who cry silently
about the size of their cock,
do their best to compensate
by getting a big truck with a
huge sound system, so that
they can parade down the street
to show the whole world what a
big strong man they are---
some men want to prove to the
guy’s driving the big trucks
that their dicks are even bigger,
so they have to get guns &
little itty bitty…Continue

My Science Fiction club was meeting the other night, and the subject of weird religions came up (most members are christians) and everybody started trashing mormonism and scientology as particularly unbelieveable, when I said: "When you realize why you don't believe in those, you will know why I don't believe yours! This earned a nervous laugh among the "saved" crowd. But it did recall to mind all the group therapy sessions I ran at the transitional home. Everybody realized and agreed…Continue
I saw Cem USLU's post about being an atheist in a muslim community and cannot help but feel sorry for those of you which find yourself in such a situation. I'm not making light of it, nor am I trying to steal thunder, but I happen to live in an atheist country (sort of), and I thought it might be informative to see how it is in this "heaven". I think it can probably be…Continue

Ugh, so it's been an entire month of holiday garbage. From the passive aggressive nature of my family during their meal time prayers or my parents trying to shove their Catholic bullshit down my young son's throat.
I want to scream at them, but I don't. I keep the peace and don't respond to their faces how angry they make me. So here it is, every response I have kept in my head.
"No mom, I may not believe in Jesus but I still like celebration because it is time I get to spend…Continue

When asked by a Christian friend this morning, "Do you agree or disagree with homosexuality?"; my response was such:
"I neither agree nor disagree with homosexuality, just as I neither agree nor disagree with trees. Although I do see how the variety of shrubbery makes the earth more beautiful."

I posted that "Gay Scientists isolate Christian Gene" video to my Facebook wall. And a friend of my mother, who has never said two words to me felt the compulsion to put this intellectual piece into my inbox:
What a lot of rubbish contained in your recent post.
Were you not taught the science of your own critical thinking when you attended Varsity?
Is it then really necessary to offend others by…
"Judging by your spelling, I assume you’re a Brit. So you folks over there are aware of our shame: the WBC.
I would be equally interested in what you think of our greater shame: a cowardly acceptance that shooting people down in multiple numbers in schools, theaters, malls, businesses, and streets with military-style weaponry is a cultural norm to be celebrated in our…Continue
I just created a group for Atheists on Branch (www.branch.com). If you haven't heard of Branch, it's a new conversation startup that's backed by the founders of Twitter and Blogger and is trying to bring great offline conversations, like the ones you have around a dinner table, online. Our group will let us start “branches” with each other really easily, and give us a page where we can share them with people and friends can ask to join. It's like the best…Continue

I have had the enlightening experience of being both Christian and atheist in my 31 years on this planet, so I am able to look at the Westboro Baptist Church through both sets of eyes.
I followed the WBC story as I have always been intrigued by cults; particularly the way in which cults snare high functioning intelligent adults. Through my own studies regarding these issues, I came to the realisation that, as a Christian, I too was in a cult. I am now an outspoken atheist, free…
There are lots of minorities in many countries. But these minorities were mostly based on etnic and/or religious groups. However being an Atheist, detaches you from the society based on your own thoughts or decisions. In a Muslim community, religion is very powerful in daily life. It seperates believers from non believers in a cunning sense. For instance; obtaining a proper position in a governmental/state organization, or even in private companies…Continue
I'm going to go over a few instances of such and then explain why I think it's a problem.
It seems that one constant in humanity has been that we have always thought we were...special.
You and I, right now are living in a special time. It is the peak of human civilization. Many realize this and feel that ultimately something special is going to happen. Such as the 2012 predictions that the Mayans may or may not have made. Perhaps Jesus is coming back. Perhaps,…Continue
