What Faith and Blogs have in common

Today, all around the Internet, especially on facebook and the like, there was a story moving with vicious veracity, that President Obama had canceled the National Day of Prayer. This, of course, is not true! It was cancelled by Judge Barbara Crabb from Wisconsin. She is the same judge that handed down the controversial Wisconsin Walleye War ruling in 1987. But I am sure that she will be remembered for this instead. Since, no one outside of Wisconsin knows what the hell… Continue

Can anyone point me in the right direction for housing assistance?

I'm employed full time. My husband can't work until his green card paperwork is processed. We are looking at between four and six months for that to happen.
Right now, we share a house with two other room mates.
Living costs in the Bay Area, Ca are absurd so this is pretty normal.
However, we are feeling the need to have our own space.
Does anyone know if there are assistance programs out there for folks that work and pay taxes, but need a few other options?

"Just One Fix" from Atheist Climber blog

Via Atheist Climber Blog



Religion really is an oddity in humanity. When citing religion, one can be excused for irrational behaviour or beliefs. It gives people an excuse to not take part in the cultural norms of the society they live in. It allows people rights and privileges that people not of that religion are denied. It regularly excuses wrongdoing and lawbreaking if these are done "in the name of God". It… Continue

Suffering and The Shroud

From Catholic News Service



Pope Benedict spent May 2 by visiting Turin, Italy, where he celebrated an outdoor mass and knelt in silent prayer before the Shroud of Turin, which many Catholics still believe to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.



After spending time… Continue

Where do you get your morals/ethics?

Someone proposed this question to me today, and I had kind of a hard time answering it. I said something about it being based on what works best to preserve and create good relationships with others. The person then asked me where that comes from. I said it's the way I was taught, the way I grew up...but I'm an adult now, so what is it based on?

He asked me is it ever okay to lie. I said it's okay if for self-preservation in desperate situations or the preservation of…

JW Disowns Five Year Old Son

In Ghana a young boy was found to be anemic. His parents realize that he's sick and they take him to the hospital. What they didn't understand is that their son's illness was about to lead to a blood transfusion, a forbidden act for the Jehovah's Witnesses. An act so reviled that it would warrant these parents disowning their son who was just five years old. Article… Continue

Raising my son to have the freedom to have his own beliefs.

I originally wrote this as a comment to a note on a friends Facebook profile. I thought I would share it here with everyone.



My son is now 18 and agnostic leaning more towards atheist.



I was in my agnostic period during his childhood before I completely committed to atheist. We had gone to church a few times with my family, who are very religious, but it was never a strict ritual on our part.



One night when he was about 4 or 5, after I read him his nightly story he… Continue

ALL have been indoctrinated

Hey guys,

I just had a brief convo with a friend on facebook (who of course is a believer ;-)) He posted a video of a little girl who is three years old. The child is praying and there's an adult encouraging her as she prays.

I usually don't comment on stuff like this but, I did. I wrote, "Thoroughly indoctrinated...but she's cute." He replied that ALL are indoctrinated, just by different things and information. Hmmm...just wondering what you guys have to say about…

The Meaning of Life

As people of religion encounter those of us that have no god, the inevitable question comes up, "What is the meaning of life?" The heated discussion recently here on TA and another question about Nihilism on another site made me think that I can only answer that question visually. I made a collage of some of the photos that make me happy that are from my life, mostly in the last five years. In it you'll find photos of me at work, play, travelling, with the two most important beings in my life,… Continue

With age comes wisdom?

Hardly...



After a long morning of yard and house work, I decided to treat myself to lunch. Adjacent from the booth I was sitting in was a group of four elderly people. Every now and again I would catch bits an pieces of their conversation; diet, keeping active, etc. Normal innocent conversation.



As I finished my meal, and was on my way out, I heard one of the women utter these 'pearls of wisdom'. The topic of conversation had turned to the oil spill in the gulf. One of the men… Continue
