"Tasting Bitter Air"

I’ve been scanning back then forth analyzing my lines…

Beyond Death

Title maybe misleading like everything else I always write because my English is not so god. My vocabulary is excellent but the way I use it is problematic. In this blog I will not talk about life after death.

Now, on to the topic.

I've been watching Real Time with Bill Maher's episode with Seth MacFarlane because I'm a big fan and I watch everything with him in it. But at the beginning of the episode (the episode in question is 2010 09 24)…

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.

The Hebrew Game of Numbers

Numerology is a form of divination or fortune telling. It is in league with astrology, although, maybe not as popular. But it was quite popular in the ancient world. The Hebrew people of ancient Israel apparently had their own form of Numerology.

 

Oh! Numerology is based on the idea that numbers have certain magical properties, some are blessed, some are curse, some tell your future or your personality, etc. [Perhaps the superstitous fear of the number 13 is related…

Milkywayism

In the beginning was Big and Bang.  Two Gods that wanted to create lesser beings to praise them because they had no self-confidence.  They got together and talked about what they wanted their creations to look like, but they couldn’t agree on the design.  They started to get aggravated with each other and started to argue with each other.  The argument got heated and Big lost control and hit Bang so hard they exploded and caused them to die.  This is the life and death of Big and…

Hi

Ok, so gonna post something...... hmm, wht to post..? Well, i guess i'll go on about my view on something like the Pledge of Allegiance(United States of America). You see, i've noticed that many atheist complain about the pledge saying "One nation, Under god" This seems like a nonsense thing to complain about..... u don't have to say that part of the pledge! just say it and like stop talking when you get to that line! Stop Complaining! It's a line... just words... that u don't have to say!… Continue

"General Instructions and Expectations"

Believe in god

It won't save you now

And it never will

But if you want to believe in someone else besides yourself

Believe in what you must believe

Just don't call me crazy when I choose to be free

*

I've already been down that road

It looks like home until you see the main roads

All of a sudden things begin to breakdown

Everyone works for a boss that never comes down

It makes me sad inside

People ready to die and some willing to kill… Continue

An atheist’s profession of faith

An atheist’s profession of faith





Someone once asked what I did believe in if I did not believe in god.  This was my response.



I believe in freedom. I believe that choice is the backbone of freedom. As choice expands, so does freedom; as choice contracts, so does freedom. I believe the freedoms granted to Americans in the Constitution are awesome.







I believe in liberty, justice and equality for all. I believe these belong to everyone regardless of…

"Imaginary Accomplice"

They tried to leave me for dead

They tried to get me to kill myself

Moments come and go

And no matter what the circumstances are

Your silence ripped my heart apart

Perhaps you should have just came on in

Helping the people tormenting me win

What exactly is faith in you good for

You just stare silently as people are beaten sore

The news shows that no place is safe

When we buy someone breaks in and takes

Do you smile when cancer digests the… Continue

the ultimate prayer

   I just read Richard Raymond's atheist prayer.  Here's mine, verbatim.

   Dear God.  Kill me.  Please!  I have lived a full life with no (well, a few small ones, maybe) regrets.  I'm ready to terminate my existence.  I'm waiting, God.  Nothing's happening.  I'll try a little harder: please, please, pretty please, oh great God.  I know you have the power to kill me; so why don't you?  It shouldn't be too hard; after all, I'm 75 years old. You could just give me a heart attack.  God,…

The Anti-Vaccination Lunacy

When Vaccinations Attack!

My son is a person with Autism spectrum disorder. Not really sure of the cause, but experts think it’s most likely genetics. Someone once suggested to me has it because he was given vaccinations when he a baby.  My first thought was ‘that’s total BS’ but I did some research anyway. I discovered that there is an entire anti-vaccination movement that believe that not only do they cause Autism but that they are a dangerous waste of…

Atheist Prayer

Borrowed this from some talented blogger on Redditt:

 

_My Prayers_

Our BRAIN, which is in our head, you're awesome!

May you be filled with knowledge.

May you acknowledge reality as well as creativity.

Give us our daily control over our body,

And forgive us as we rage upon creationists.

As we forgive those who dare not think.

Subject us not to a deity,

But deliver us from stupidity.

For you are our only…
