Diary of a Wimpy Kid - A Perfect Dump and Run Movie

Sixth grader Greg Heffley learns important lessons about friendship, being a good friend and identity in Diary of a Wimpy Kid. A light-hearted, middle-school buddy movie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a perfect dump and run movie.



Entering middle school wasn’t as easy as Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) anticipated. Some of the kids are way bigger than him. The same things that are cool in elementary school become a badge of shame in middle school. Greg does everything he can to fit in and be… Continue

God & Heaven: the end of the religious rainbow

This comparison is a day late, but I didn't have time to post it yesterday.



It seems that for many, all it takes is the desire for there to be a God and all his rewards for belief. They want this to be true with all their heart. In fact, over time, many convince themselves that they know it is true. In fact, I've been asked by many, "But don't you want to live forever/go to Heaven?". As if the desire for this translates to causing it to be… Continue

Introductions

Hello, Think Atheist! I've finally plucked up the guts to join, after months of reading the blogs and forums and acquainting myself with atheism in general. I live in southwest Virginia, and for the most part I love it here. I'm in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and beautiful views abound. However, this is the same Virginia that houses Bob Marshall and Governor Bob McDonnell, and is perilously close to the Bible Belt, if it isn't part of it already.

I…

Romania - a Secular Country?

I live in Romania, Europe and I continue to be amazed by the irrationality that seems to govern this country. The Romanian Constitution stipulates that Romania is a secular state, but it certainly doesn't act as it should.



Let's start with the religion that is being taught in schools. No, not private, faith schools, but public schools. Romania, a secular state, preaches students religion, not for one or two years, but for... twelve. I said "preaches" and not "teaches",…

The Atheist God

There are times when i want to say that there is a god. Don't get all disappointed just yet; here's what I mean.


God is not some omnipotent being that lives in the sky and knows ahead of time which of us he's going to punish. He didn't create the universe. He doesn't interfere with our lives with his noodley appendages, but he is real. God is a concept. God is a concept created by humans. God is what humans inserted into the unknown to explain it. God is what humans have…

Spectrum of Theistic Probability

Popularized by Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion, the Spectrum of Theistic Probability is a way of categorizing one’s belief regarding the probability of the existence of a deity.

Cigarettes and Chaplains: Bad for the Military, Good for the Troops?

Recently there's been a lot of talk on wether or not the military is going to ban smoking for it's enlisted men and women. I have mixed feelings about it.


I think it would be good, obviously, if the people who have to run around carrying the heavy guns, avoiding enemy fire, didn't smoke. They'd be healthier, more efficient, and would be more prepared for true worst-case scenarios (that's saying something for the military).


Think of it this way:…

I'm a gift from God

I like picking on my facebook friends. Mostly because they aren't friends. But anyway...



This girl is trying to convince me she is a gift from God. Okay sure.

But she really truly believes that she was a soul or something floating around in the sky, and as soon as her parents conceived her, she came from the sky and formed in her mother, and that her mother's uterus was merely a passageway for her to come from the sky to the physical earth, and when she dies, she's going to leave… Continue

When Mountains Shake

Early Saturday morning, my husband's best friend (whom we will call MD) decided to descend over a steep ridge on his snowmobile. The snow was fresh and heavy, the day was beautiful. Immediately, he broke off an avalanche behind him. Before he probably literally even knew what was happening, the force of the snow gathering strength behind him snapped his neck and then ragdolled him through the rocks (breaking his ribs and both legs), and on through to the bowl (ie, a valley) where it buried him… Continue

"Well that puts an end to that controversy"...

That's what an employee at Clear Channel said to my husband when he went to pick up the "Are you good without God. Millions are." billboards for me last Friday. When he backed up our minivan to load the vinals, (from which relic totebags are being fashioned) the guy eyeballed our bumper stickers and emblems.and made his comment, "Well that puts an end to that…

It's time to put the Ameican People FIRST!

My former business partner died about 4 weeks ago. She had been fighting cancer for over 15 years.

Due to a third rate doctor and an HMO, she was misdiagnosed and nickel and dimed to death for years by them.

But HMO’s are very proven experts in the “Nickel and Dime” game.

I use to be in the insurance business back in the mid 1990’s.

It was the “Seniors” market. Medicare and Long Term Care.

Many people switch to the HMO’s for the “free” insurance.

Most of them had never… Continue

Drama from an Abandoned Blog

I started a blog last fall, Agnostic Innocence, which lately I have grown rather disenchanted with. To make a long story short, I started the blog specifically with the intent to better understand my own position on different topics; it was really an exercise in my own introspection that I published on the internet in order to force myself to adhere to the writing standards of the public sphere. At the time I began (and named) the blog, I was technically an atheist in that I did not… Continue

making everything into a religious debate is not my goal, thinking is my mission

Friend: Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to.


Me: Also, believing what you know is not so.


Friend: Is it your mission in life to make everything a religious debate?


Me: Yes, I was hired by the ACLU and the Freedom From Religion Foundation to reply to your status.




Ok so I was sarcastic rather than serious. I could have come up with, it is your…

coming out godless; my journey form good Catholic girl to Heretic

I finally decided to write my story of how this could have happened. I remember having my first doubts about religion when I was 5, my cousin who was the same age as me had just died of a brain tumor and my grandma went into this elaborate story about how she was flying over grass and trees on her way to heaven, which was a beautiful place that was supposedly perfect. the first thing I remember thinking after this story was, how can something be perfect when everyone has a different idea of… Continue
