My Heart Attack

   One week ago today after getting home from work I decided to take care a few things around the yard followed by wrestling the spare tire from under the minivan to change a flat. Then it hit, my chest hurt rapid heart rate shortness of breath so I went into the the house. I sat in a the chair while my family asked I I thought I was having a heart attack? I said I don't know, this wasn't passing quickly like a few other times I had simular but not as strong feelings. After 20 minutes I…

The Empowerment of "I don't Know"

The Empowerment of Admitting ‘I Don’t Know’

This is a link to Top Ten Things Believers Say When They mean “I don’t know”.  Most unbelievers have heard all of these at one time or another. I really don’t understand why anyone would be afraid of ‘I don’t know’. Here is a list of 5 reasons why “I don’t know “ is liberating and…

Trust Me, I'm an Atheist: Can Coming Out Build Credibility?

According to a series of recent studies reported in the National Post, it turns out that we atheists are among the least trusted people around, with religious people ranking us along with rapists as the least trusted groups. This doesn't seem very shocking for anyone who has ever expressed their views to someone of faith and why many of us,…

My Testimony (my journey to atheism)

My Testimony

 

DISCLAIMER: It may not be what you’re expecting—it may even upset you—but it’s the truth, and that is truly what matters to me.

 

“I once was lost, but now am found... was blind, but now I see.”

(Amazing Grace)

 

The meaning of those words has changed dramatically for me in the last several years.

 

I was born and raised in the Christian faith. When I was a little girl, we attended a Presbyterian church.…

Australia to remove BC and AD from school history books

The decision by the Australian government to ditch the Christian calendar in school history books has been met by anger.



Instead of BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini), the curriculum will use BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era) instead.



The change in abbreviations does not equate to a change in dates, but the Archbishop of Sydney the Most Rev Peter Jensen has described BCE and CE as “meaningless”.



He said the move yesterday was an “intellectually…

Consolations of Atheism

                                    CONSOLATION TWENTY-EIGHT: POKER

     Always a favorite hobby, poker has become something more to me now that I'm in my late seventies. It's the one competitive activity I can still do with men and women a third my age. Can't do it in sports -- in golf, the only sport I can still play without tearing myself apart, I have to use the senior tees. Can't do it professionally -- I'm retired from all that. Only in poker can I still sit down with 20-, 30-,…

Reaching out to my Freethinking friends....

Hey guys...



I know we use this forum to rally against the opponents of science and reason and for good reason. But I wanted to blog, just for a minute, about our community, because I think it, and you all, are friggin' awesome.



I'm kind of going through a rough time. Oh, no, don't worry... nothing that dramatic. Just a hiccup in the road we call life. But it's been tough and stressful and reasonably so. Money's really tight, work is hard to come by, blah blah blah, nothing… Continue

Is God Hiding?

There are some Christians who cannot be sure if their god is hiding or not. Their answer keeps changing. In debates, they sometimes speak of how all creation points to their god, or how speaking in tongues shows his holy spirit is real. They may speak of healing that could only have come about with their god's help, or how Bible prophecies being fulfilled is proof it was divinely inspired. In their eyes, God isn't hiding. Proof of his…

Pentecostal Holiness

This small denomination of the great web of Christianity is not known of by many people.  This is due mostly to the inherent qualities of the religion itself.  The men must keep their hair short and keep their faces shaven.  The women can not cut their hair, nor wear makeup or jewelry of any kind.  They must only wear ankle-length skirts/dresses and cover their arms at least to the elbow at all times.  Though they do not have to wear bonnets (one of the only differences between them and…

The Many Paths to Atheism

I'm active on a few sites and there seems to be a few truths. One is that many atheists were at one time religionists. The ones that were once religionists seem to think that they have a monopoly on escaping religion. Their path out is the only way to escape religion. It's not unlike AA members. You must follow these 12 steps and keeping coming back because it works. Much like AA isn't THE way (or statistically, a way) there are many paths out of religion.

I make arguments against…

Today I Had one of the most lucid dreams of my life and in it, I spoke to god.

The dream started with me running through a very long hallway from which I could not see the end but I could easily recognize it as I had seen it before. It was the hallway from the apartment where I used to live in Barcelona with my parents. But, instead of being just a couple of meters long, this one was infinite.



I kept running despite the fact I didn't know where I was running to or from. I ran and ran for what it felt as eternity.

 

All of a sudden I stopped…

No Tolerance For Intolerance.

I don't have a lot of tolerance for intolerance.



I guess I'm just a bigot in that way.



Homophobia, racism, sexism, nationalism, and the mother-effing grand-daddy of all intolerance, religion. Religion not only perpetuates intolerance, it spends a hefty amount of time and money enforcing it through government officials.



When I hear someone use a homophobic slur, I get quietly offended. When I hear someone say something incredibly racist, I'll speak up and calmly… Continue

This Space Sphere Contains a Secret Message to Aliens

This is LAGEOS. Since 1976, this perfect disco sphere has been orbiting Earth carrying 426 cube corner reflectors made of fused silica glass—except four, made of germanium. It also contains a coded message, designed by Dr. Carl Sagan.

The message was duplicated in two 4 x 7-inch stainless steel plates and contains several codes telling things about Earth. The first…
