My boss is a cruel bitch. Yes, she's my friend... but she's a cruel, mean, heartless bitch. She's also an atheist, so I think she did this as a joke on me. She hired 2 travel nurses to work for 9 weeks who are from the BIBLE BELT; one from Texas and one from Alabama. Between the Catholic Filipinos and the white Christian Fundies, I'm in atheist hell.
We're busy and learning a new computer charting system (I'm a teacher), so we really did need the extra help. But these… Continue

Part 2 of my ongoing coverage of the Texas State Board of Education's ruthless commandeering of the United States education system.
“We’ve been amazed at the divisiveness and the dysfunctionality of the board. Under this chairman’s leadership, I’m afraid our State Board of Education has been ridiculed and become the laughingstock of the nation.”

It is difficult to talk on the subject of religion without sounding, to some, like a fanatic. Some people I have encountered in life think I am as fanatical in my disbelief as a fundamentalist Christian might be in theirs. Some even say that my Atheism is a religion in itself, or at least that my fervour for atheism is on par…

The Pope’s letter on child sexual abuse holds lessons for civic society. What he writes to Catholics about religion is a matter between him and them. But the Catholic church also operates within civic society, acts as a quasi-State at the United Nations, and sends ambassadors to real States. And the Pope’s letter includes assertions about secular society that are factually wrong.
Having read the full letter, the following seems clear:
1. The Pope’s main priority is to… Continue

The Bible contains scenes of gratuitous violence, genocide, incest, bestiality, sex, suicide, drugs and alcohol, revenge, voyeurism, lawlessness etc. I constantly wonder whether most people who call themselves Christians have even read the Bible from cover to cover because of this. Surely no one who has read the things that their supposedly benevolent creator has done and the human rights violations he has forced human kind to both commit and endure can call themselves a true, loving Christian… Continue

So I finally saw this on Youtube, but there's a problem... on every YouTube version I can find, episode 3 is cut off at the very end. Jonathan Miller is talking about how there needs to be a rational...
And then it cuts off.
Where and how can I see what's missing?
Also, the Atheism Tapes are available on DVD, but is this original program also? I can't seem to find it.

Is Civility Dead?

I live in a city known for its brotherly love, but I didn’t see a lot of that one recent day while reading an on-line edition of the newspaper where I work. The public comment section contained some of the coldest, most vicious writing I’d ever seen.
Under an article about a woman’s murder and her boyfriend’s arrest, some one wrote, “So 2 pieces of trash are off the street…

The stuff I get once I came out as Atheist.
Ok, since I came out as Atheist about 2 years ago, I keep getting emails and stuff from like my mom either picking on Atheists or begging me to "Come back to God". I am seriously getting tired of this shit. I know that once you pick your fight that you need to fight it, and as the person that I am, I cant stand back and watch these people try to change the US into a theocracy and destroy the best idea that man has so far come up with… Continue

This week has been especially productive for me as far as the film festival goes. I presented a freethought shorts program to CFI Tampa, and the demographic was spot on, and I was super psyched. Several independent film enthusiast were in attendance, and the films were well received. I'm also psyched about the online contest that we (Freethought Film Festival Foundation) are planning. The theme is Skeptical Satirical Shorts Under 666 Seconds. Online… Continue

2 Peter 1:20-21
For you know this first, that no prophecy of Scripture springs from any private interpretation. For prophecy was at no time brought by man’s will, but men spoke from God as they were borne along by holy spirit.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good… Continue

I am going to forcefully limit myself to a single post about Ray McCauley unless he does something this hypocritical or annoying again, otherwise I could continue ranting eternally.
Ray McCauley, popular South African televangelist, founder and leader of a 40 000 strong congregation and the Rhema Bible Church, which even has its own channel, is getting divorced for the second time.

It's been a good while, friends. Lately I've been experimenting with making a more conscious effort to live life instead of just writing about it, and it has regrettably gouged a nice big hole into the time I used to dedicate to both this site and my own projects. You may not even remember me.
Either way, I'm back again today because there what I believe to be a very dangerous threat has surfaced within the… Continue
