First blog, let's talk about the futility of politics on the internet

Ok I just heard about this story so the details may not be entirely be

accurate but apparently the Republicans decided to create a website so

regular Americans, like me, you, and the Mushroom Kingdom, can send and post

suggestions. The site is called http://www.americaspeakingout.com

and all you do is post ideas so the Republicans can make their policy

based on your suggestions!



I guess they are trying to be… Continue

Fun Quiz: Who's that Fundamentalist?

How's your trivia skills where quotes from religious leaders are concerned? I just created a new quiz that tries to show how difficult it is to know which fundamentalist said what -- because they all think alike in some very essential ways. Check it out, here.

Morgan Freeman's "Through the Wormhole" on the Science Channel

The collection of channels including the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, Animal Planet, the History Channel, etc, are quite controversial for their programs. Torn between love and hate, critics criticize the programs on these channels for dumbing down scientific, naturalistic, and historical subjects to the point of absurdity.



My personal take is that they have their place. I am endlessly fascinated by shows such as "The Universe", "Planet Earth", "Life",… Continue

Women's Rights and the Right To Choose

I pass by anti-choice protesters about everyday on my way to work. I see all kinds of stupid, nonsensical, ignorant signs and I can't help but worry that one day abortion may be illegal again. Seriously scares the shit out of me. I pay $110 every 3 months for my birth control. My insurance doesn't cover the name brand and I am physically unable to take the generic for medical reasons that I don't want to get into. I'm doing my part to try and prevent unwanted pregnancy. If something should… Continue

The Incompatibility of Science & Religion

I have batted this topic around in my head for a couple of years now but when all is said and done I can not help but stick firmly to one side of the argument: Religion and science are extremely incompatible. I strongly feel that to embrace one is to deny the other.



A recent article posted by… Continue

Ted Haggard: The Joke That Won't Go Away

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/Religion/post/2010/06/ted-haggard-church-gay-sex-scandal/1


This guy is actually starting a new church. Really? Really?


I guess he doesn't have much of a choice with no marketable skills to make a living doing anything else. Maybe selling meth or becoming a male prostitute, who knows? That would…

"The importance of secular education" from Atheist Climber Blog

From Atheist Climber blog



As a child I was often told I had a vivid imagination, one that was filled with wonder and fantasy, and I loved the stories my parents would read to me. But I learned at a very young age that monsters and leprechauns were not real. While my imagination was allowed to flourish, my inquisitive nature was such that if I wanted to know about something, I was always… Continue

Exam Prayer

Last week a couple of people from my year got a laminated piece of paper that had a prayer on it.The title was Exam Prayer.It was a prayer to be said to god asking him to help them do good in the junior cert.

If they all get A+ I'm going to be a christian and pray the whole time.Hopefully a year of praying will help me get good results in the leaving cert.

Declaration of Defection from the Catholic Church

I recently sent an official Declaration of Defection to the Roman Catholic Diocese where I was baptized. Has anyone else ever done this? Did they actually receive a response from the archbishop? Do tell!

I think I'm going to join a church.

I think I'm gonna join a church for a few months and make everyone love
me, then announce I'm actually an atheist (anti theist) and see if their
opinions change.

I wonder what kind of outcome that will be.

I'll have to make sure I never preach about god, that way it wouldn't be a
lie when they scream deceit.

"I never once said I believed in your god."

..I'm just here to observe.

hmmmm.
