The Unapologetic Non-Believer
I was watching television the other day when my intelligence was once again assaulted by a vocal and unabashed member of the flat earth society. A Republican member of the Texas school board responsible or deciding that evolution should not be allowed in textbooks because it has “no scientific justification” and a concept espoused by those ”Godless left wingers“.
As a woman, as a mother and as a student surrounded by creative young men and women, I am often chastised by others for not being tolerant of religion. I am told that being an Atheist requires just as much assumption as being religious and that in my dismissal of all faiths I am ignoring the good that religion brings into the world.
I do not believe that there is any good that religion, any religion, is doing in the world.
I think that every faith promotes ignorance,…Continue

how will Israel
“calm the territory?”
with imprisonment &
torture behind the walls,
like they killed Arafat Jaradat.
and we can watch the soldiers get up in the
face of the young boys throwing
as if these rocks would penetrate their
flak vests, as if these rocks wouldn’t
bounce off their tanks
as they plow over the remaining Palestinian
homes, to make way for…Continue

wish Hitch could’ve been alive
to watch joey fall,
to see a “pope” of all the
catholic little boy rapists,
dismiss himself from the
prior to taking any responsibility
for sitting back while
all the lil’ catholic priests
go molesting about,
masturbating the boys who trusted
scarring them in the name of the
it’s more important to the world…Continue

Jonah and the Whale
Jonah 1:1 to 4:1
1:1 Once upon a time there was a Jewish guy named Jonah. The Lord talked Jonah. He said "Jonah, go over there to that extremely distant city of Nineveh. Let the Ninnies know that I have noticed their wickedness, even from way over here. I’m not blind. And I'm not just watching and judging…

Backstory: My girlfriend/fiancee is a christian, at the start of our relationship it clashed and we debated pretty often until a standstill was decided. She's not very religious or religious at all. And today or yesterday, she did and said a couple of things that made my day. Which are they?
First! She planned and executed a plan for us to hide from the religious study her mother is helding every friday night. It worked.
Second! Religion came up, at some point i quoted from…Continue

You'll likely all have heard this argument at some point. It's a classic.
Outlined rather well by http://www.godlessgeeks.com/LINKS/GodProof.htm, it goes something like this:
"(1) Person X, a well-known atheist, was morally inferior to the rest of us.
(2) Therefore, God exists."
It's just poetic, isn't it?
So... Assuming Hitler was an…Continue

I have to find brand new friends because the old ones were a disappointment. I hate having to do this. I'm an introvert, and it's not easy for me to crawl out of my shell. All I want is a small group of people to be consistently decent. It shouldn't be hard. Yet, it is.
If you ask me what happened with my old friends, I will tell you, but it is a long and possibly scandalous story.
I suppose it was only a matter of time before God dropped the dating ball and allowed one of it's devotees to fall victim to another one of it's devotees. ChristianMingle's omnipotent, omniscient gawd seems to be suffering from a lapse of attention to matters here…Continue

The "DJesus Uncrossed" skit on Saturday Night Live was a parody that depicted the Christian savior as one of Quentin Tarantino's latest blood and guts shoot um up stars. It definitely garnered a response from the 'holier than thou's' who didn't appreciate the humor. I wonder why the major networks lack the balls to mock the other religion's holy figures? Is the fallout really going to be any more elevated? It would be nice to see these broadcasting companies paint ALL the religions in a…Continue

Reading about the Pistorius shooting.
I cant help but marvel at the fact that someone would get involved with another person who keeps loaded firearms stashed around their home. And sleeps with one by their bed.
Someone that obsessed by their fear should tip one off that something is wrong.
Gun violence studies claim that a person is more likely to get shot by a family member than a stranger.
This case would appear to strengthen that claim.

It's been awhile since I've had any pause to write anything and it feels good to be able to get a few things off my chest, even if it’s mundane. Because of this time laps in writing I fear this may become long and winded, forgive me in advance. There’s just too much to say for me to wrap in up into a smaller package that’s easier to read. I am no blogger, but I have a lot to say.
Recently I’ve been getting a little flustered by the unrelenting use of “God” in the most basic…Continue
