Ok, so just about a day or two ago these people from the old pueblo baptist church out here in tucson tryed to leave their little flyers on my doorknob. I didn't see them put it there, but when I stepped outside the house I noticed the flyers on the doorknob. So I just put them in my backpack, and decided to look at them later. So then after awhile I decided to write a response back to the pastor about leaving that stuff on my doorknob. Here's my response back to the pastor, it's a 7…Continue
This is a letter to the editor in a local paper. The Marietta Daily Journal has been gunning for Kennesaw State University for quite sometime now, accusing the college of being Marxist. Typical lock step christian fundamentalist tripe stating "It is only when people believe and practice these commands [Christianity] that peoples of all races, languages and nations can live together peacefully and lovingly." In my opinion, this guy (and this paper) desperately need an…Continue

I feel a bit shady posting this as my very first blog; I blog on my other site (greengeekgirl.com) and rarely think to migrate the blogs over here. I'm looking for a few intelligent readers, though, so I'm pressing on!
Note: This is absolutely and positively an attempt to get cool new members for my book group. But don't be fooled--I'm not mass-spamming this all over every site that I visit. I'm concentrating my efforts on the few sites where I will find intelligent,…Continue

A strange optimism has overcome me today. With all the disasters and unrest around the world right now, you might call me crazy, but hear me out and you may agree with me.
We tend to be a very self-centred and self-interested lot, us humans, and we will always try to look after our own immediate family and community, forsaking the rest of the world in favour of our own…

Survival bunker sales are up 1000%. So many people believe the end of the world is coming in 2012 that sales of bunkers and underground living quarters are selling like hotcakes.

The habitual capitalization of the word ‘god’ is evidence of one of the most insidious mind-games ever perpetrated by the cult of Yahweh. To understand why, one must first understand that language, as a…Continue
I just have to share great news when I read it, and this recent article concerning this relatively new student organization's progress brightened my day. I hope it does the same for you guys.
"Nothing demonstrates this point more clearly than the rapid growth of the Secular Student Alliance, the umbrella group for organized atheism and humanism on college campuses (and now high schools as well). SSA chapters have grown from less…Continue

I love the responses about the magazine! I knew there would be some creative people on here just itching to get some of their stuff out for others to see.
The plan is to get a pool of talent together and once there are people who will be serious about this involved, we'll get to particulars. Right now I'm trying to wrangle some folks (we truly are like herding cats!)to see how much content can be created. If you read this and are interested, message me, reply to this, twitter me,…Continue

I am in the "generation y" part of this large generation of young people who face a problem that our parents didn't face to nearly the degree we do now. Funding College. In America it doesn't seem to matter whether the millenial kids go to public or private 4-year colleges, make no mistake! Unless you are REALLY poor, REALLY lucky, or REALLY a "when…Continue
