Women worth less then men in Islam

The many opportunities denied women under Islamic law, from giving equal testimony in court to having the right to exclude other wives from their marital bed, is very clear proof that women are of lesser value then men in Islam.  Muslim women are not even free to marry outside the faith without being killed by their own families.

 Islamic law also specifies that when a woman is murdered by…

Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali speaks out on Brandeis decision to withdraw degree

It's rather interesting that a mostly Jewish university offered and then withdrew an honor to a woman speaking out against Islam. A former member of Dutch Parliament, Ali was herself a victim of misogynistic theocracy.

This interview was conducted yesterday on Fox news:…

Atheists response to dying

I have two people dying in my life.

One is my brother-in-law who is finally paying the piper for a life spent in disregard for the future.  Liver failure and the shutting down of all the processes of the body as alcoholism takes it toll.

The other is my Mother who is lying in the hospital tonight.  She's confused and frightened and all she can say, over and over again, is "heaven and hell"  or is it "heaven or hell", it's hard to tell.

My brother-in-law is a Jehovah's…

HR Diagram

rosettastone The Hertzsprung Russell Diagram is the "Rosetta Stone" of stellar astronomy and it's simple, very simple. So to put it simply, it's just a graph that plots lots of stars' luminosities against their surface temperatures. As simple as that sounds, it is the key to understanding stellar evolution.

The Male-Competetive Nature of Sex in Evolution and Culture

The following is speculative and reliant on memory, not yet citing scientific references. I feel it includes significant insight, but wouldn't mind if anyone posts evidence to the contrary.

Sex's advantage/purpose in life's evolutionary processes is not yet as simply definable as, say "it enhances genetic diversity". But obviously there are several, complexly related advantages of sex in evolution that outweigh its disadvantages, on the whole. (Recall, bacteria are still evolving,…

A planet without men (poem)

A planet without men.

Dont I wish I lived on a planet where men dont exist, 

Equality hardly exists in this planet of males and females

Hermaphrodites and Androgynes are asumed to be a myth

Yet so many earthlings believe that a god is not a myth

Transsexuals and transgenders are frowned on,

Conservatives consider the small and big changes an abomination.

In some places even women are put down not alone by segregation.

Men…

Saudi Arabia declares atheists terrorists under new laws targeting citizens who 'call for secular thought in any form'

Saudi Arabia has officially identified atheists as terrorists in sweeping new laws that threaten up to 20 years in prison for almost any criticism of the government or Islam.

The regulations place secular citizens who commit thought crimes in the same category as violent terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda's Yemen branch and Saudi Hezbollah.

Under the new decree by King Abdullah, Saudi Arabia will jail for up to 20 years anyone who fights in…
