Philippine President, Catholic Church and Reproductive Health

There is an on-going debate here in the Philippines regarding the governments active action to curb out population increase. One major plan is to pursue the Reproductive Health Program, in which, the Department Of Health, will be giving out seminars to the less fortunate Filipinos about population, health and parenting. The government is urging the general public to support its programs. The Philippine President, also stated that he supports this plan because he views it as a major factor in… Continue

"Infidel Powered" NSFW

Do you see

The wear on me

And yet you still believe

In gods that don't breathe

Wake up and know

Your gods don't ever show

Until you choose to make them up

From the dust

There is no salvation from what we have become

On the outside

Inside we must decide to rise

Instead of looking at the sky

Your gods don't know if I'm sleeping

Or if I'm awake

They don't know what good or bad is

They are all bastards and… Continue

Atheism is a natural outcome



In my recent interview with PZ Myers, when asked "Is atheism even something you think about, or is it merely part of having an informed knowledge of the universe and its workings?" he stated:

"Atheism is a natural conclusion of rational and scientific thinking."

Bingo! He hit the nail on the head, and… Continue

The Big Kahuna is a Steeler's Fan

You may have missed the excitement from yesterday's NFL games. My beloved Buffalo Bills nearly pulled off the upset of the year by beating the Steelers of Pittsburgh. The local club snatched victory from the jaws of defeat when a wide-open Stevie Johnson dropped a pass in the end zone in overtime. The ball hit him right between the numbers.



Johnson was inconsolable after the game. Apparently he was feeling a little more wordy after the game when he tweeted the following:…

Babies Are Not Ashamed

Your child doesn't care that I'm a different color


But why do you


Babies love who loves them plainly


Adults like to love based on who they see


Yet they can love an imaginary god who they can't see but can't love me


Oh I'm not scared of your Hell believe me


If it did exist you would be right there with…

Priest hires hitman to take out sexual assault accuser.

Can't make this stuff up, folks. You think if this happened in Rome the Vatican would give him sanction?

Scientologists live in my basement.

I've posted about this on a certain group I belong to on Facebook, but I thought I'd say something about it on here. Scientologists have rented out the storefront in the bottom of the apartment building I live in. I think I may have to do something about this. Updates to come.

Things I Learned From a Christian at a Funeral

  • Death is not natural
  • Death is the punishment for sins and everybody sins
  • Einstein wasn't Christian but he said something about God doesn't do random things, and that is relevant for some reason.
  • The laws of thermodynamics prove that only God can create new matter or energy.
  • My dead grandmother would not tell us to worry about taxes or vacations.
  • My dead grandmother would not tell us to worry about retirement, she would tell us she has met…

I Did Not Suspect That Coming...Regarding The Spanish Inquisition

Imagine my surprise when the door suddenly opens and people run in yelling, "YOU DONT BELIEVE IN GOD?"

"NO ONE EVER SUSPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!!!"



maybe I should have started out writing about how my evening went last night (night before Thanksgiving) and then giving the Monty Python 'Spanish Inquisition' punch line near the end of this post- either way, holy tits...they came out of no where. I am hangin' with the bros drinking a fine Belgian wheat ale and playing some liars… Continue

On Thanksgiving.

"On Thanksgiving theists give gratitude to a bipolar imaginary friend for the things they earned via their own efforts and favorable circumstances. Atheists pat them selves on the back and are happy that these choices and circumstances gave them such good things for another year of the only life they'll have." - Jason Paisley

Close-Minded Atheists

I don't feel one can rationally make general claims about "religions" or "religion". Such attempts by atheists show their emotional agenda has trumped their rational skills. And to do so with a claim of superior rationality reveals a destructive emotional habit. IMHO.



Religion is an abstract notion and too slippery given the varieties of entities out there that can be slipped into various understandings of the word. Thus, generalizations are unsuccessful. Misunderstanding the nature of… Continue

Mental Feedback: The key to consciousness, intelligence, and free will.

Free will can be a very contentious topic. People can't seem to agree on what it means, exactly. Much of the difficulty arises from the use of the word, "free", in the term, "free will". To be truly free would require supernatural agency. We CAN'T act contrary to natural law, so we are constrained by nature.



Free will, therefor, exists in context of the most basic of natural laws: causality. Free will constrained by causality? To those who believe…

Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory

KANSAS CITY, KS—As the debate over the teaching of evolution in public schools continues, a new controversy over the science curriculum arose Monday in this embattled Midwestern state. Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held "theory of gravity" is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling.

Exercise>Religion everyday of the week!

That's right, I'm an atheist and proud to begin with. But all these years I've never been too into shape so to speak. And so now is the time to change that! I'm doing it not just for myself, but for a personal reason as well. Anyways I go to this one fitness center called the clements center, you just pay $2 a day and you can work out for as long as you want. I basically worked out for 2 hours yesterday when I went, and so when I'm not at the center I'm working out at home. So yeah, when I… Continue
