Yesterday morning, representing the Houston Atheists, I joined roughly fifty other secular Houstonians for a freethought coffee social. The meetup was organized by the Houston Freethought Alliance, with a goal of bringing our groups together for secular fellowship.…
So I came across this article… don’t remember if it was a link through here or google, but I read some of the posts linked in that article by Jennifer Fulwiler, the former Atheist now Catholic Convert…and in one of her articles (Reasoning with Atheists:…
Our current government system has no place for religion. No place for myth, dogma, or rhetoric. I will concede that religion did have its place in a more primitive time but that time is long since past for America and the modern world. Not until we educate the rest of this planet will we put the fairytale to rest, not until information and facts replace myth and folklore will we be free from the hate and division that religion is so famous for. Nothing we do in life today is based on myth. We… Continue
1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.2The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3They are all gone aside,…
Laying upon warm sand looking upon the stars & moon listening to the sounds of water slamming against its self, closing my eyes to only open them in a world of my own wonder, colonies on the moon, cities in the clouds, elevators to space stations, cleaner air, healthier people, happier people. A world not to far from our grasp. It could have been already at our feet if the religious hate mongers hadn't destroyed the work of the genius Archimedes. Millions have died & continue to…Continue
What is "Nothing?" This question sounds like an oxymoron, because "Is" can only be said about something that exist.

So again, “What is Nothing?”
Understanding the word might give me better… Continue
So I'm wasting time not working and run across this blog that was linked to Reddit. It's short and to the point in getting out a Graph put out by the Reason Project. it lists 439 bible contractions and where they are found in the Bible. Often not in just one place, but multiple locations showing the conflicting statements everywhere. It's so cool. I will certainly be saving a copy of the PDF for myself. the link is zoom ready but… Continue
I just got back home about an hour ago from the group photo at the Tampa Bay Coalition of Reason billboard. The estimated number of people is 50, but I don't have an exact count. The crowd that turned out for it was such a great mix of age ranges...and most of them brilliantly pulled off a look of normalcy.:-P (I'm not exactly sure what some people think an atheist looks like, but I know I wouldn't be able to pick one out of a crowd.) Two… Continue
I chiefly write this note for Christian readers in hopes they will take 5 minutes to read it all, but I know 5 minutes is much to ask, especially for what might be considered offense or arrogance in the following paragraphs. Read if you'd like.
I took a screenshot of facebook's "Religious Views" pull-down menu the other day and noticed that there are way too many choices. Then I realized how unbelievable it is that there are still this many variations of Christianity. Then I… Continue
