So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the LORD commanded. Aaron cast down his staff before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers, and they, the magicians of Egypt, also did the same by their secret arts. – Exodus 7:10-11

How do you deal with someone civilly when you're being forced to see them and they don't deserve someone being civil to them?
How can you calmly schedule meetings with a person that you never want in your life again?
How can you follow through with those meetings without snapping?
How do you spend an entire day, two days a month, with a person you'd rather just slap across the face?
How can you be nice to someone who has been a huge jerk to you?
How can you…Continue
I honestly could not care less what you believe. If you want to assert that loving a person of the same sex as yourself damns you to a fiery abyss for all of eternity, thats your choice. Similarly, if you believe that rape is "God's Will", and that any child which is conceived from this event deserves a right to live, no matter what the age or mental state of the mother may be, that is entirely your choice, and I'm glad you have that choice. The ability and time to make and have our own…Continue

An excerpt from Kurt Vonnegut's novel Timequake.
Genesis According to Kilgore Trout:
"In the beginning there was absolutely nothing, and i mean NOTHING," he said. "But nothing implies something, just as up implies down and sweet implies sour, as man implies woman and drunk implies sober and happy implies sad. I hate to tell you this, friends and neighbors, but we are teens-weensy implications in an enormous implication. If you don't…Continue

It's been a long time in the making, but I am an atheist. More specifically, I'm a nontheist with atheist, Humanist, and pantheist sways. I think religion is a part of human nature; it's our way to simplify the complexities of the universe, a way to enforce morality, and a way to fulfill our basic human need to see order in chaos. It helps us cope as we mourn and fear death, it gives us hope when things are tough, and it gives us comfort when we see the imbalance and chaos between good…Continue

Several of this happenings have struck him very hard, as the one of this 9 year old that kill himself after arriving home from an evangelical mass…Continue
I'm venting. Straight up. But I need somewhere to share my anger and ... disappointment. You see, my dad is a pretty smart guy. He's an electrical engineer.
