Evaluation

This is my last report regarding

my mission to evaluate the beings of this world.

Thirty of this planet’s orbital cycles ago

I arrived here by Refracted Linear-Light/Fold.

Since then I have lived, worked, and played alongside

these beings in the guise of one of their own.

Universal Protocols remain intact.

I have had no ill-effect nor have I…

You can take your hat off

As a child, it was as if I'd been shoved into a huge cathedral packed wall-to-wall with billions of people, and everybody was wearing a hat. Up on my tip-toes, straining to look out over the heads of the crowd, I saw a massive turbulent sea of hats of all shapes and colors. Although the hats themselves were quite vivid, everyone's face was blurred.

Everyone in the crowd was proclaiming their hat to be the best hat to…

Life After Death

OK, so this post is very long overdue. I have been struggling to keep up to my blogging duties due to the small matter of university exams. However, you will be pleased to know that they have finished, and so has my blogging hiatus. So, a welcome back is in order.

I am going to start this post by saying that…

Christians, Stop Using the "Well there were eyewitnesses" Defense

As I enter more and more into the debate world, there is a peculiar phenomena that I find when debating Christians. It is the belief that eyewitness testimony is at all reliable. Especially so when it comes to the divinity of Yeshua (Jesus). Unfortunately this is completely wrong when it comes to proving the bibles validity. There is no presupposition here. It's pure fact from study and research. Let's take a look at the account that Christians give when it comes to the Bibles historic content… Continue

Pledge of Allegiance problem in school

Hiya. My name is Ash...

I go to a high school  in the state of Georgia, and I am currently taking AP US History.

I do not say the pledge, and I do not stand.

I do not say it because I know America is not "under God" and I know there is not "liberty and justice for all."

I choose not to stand because I don't want to stand for a country, that I believe, does not stand for me.

I have not stood for the pledge since 8th grade, and I'm currently in 11th. I have never had any…

A Hell of a choice: Christians try to whitewash one of their most awful beliefs

There has been some discussion about the topic of Hell over at Psychology Today[1] recently. You might even  say it's a hot topic! (Sorry.) Psychologist Nathan Heflick wrote about the psychological aspects of the subject and invited readers to share why they personally believe in Hell. Humanistic blogger Greg Henriques, took a…

The Obligatory Atheism Plus Post

I recently reached out to past interviewees for questions as a "turn the tables" interview for an upcoming post. Atheist Revolution’s Vjack asked what I thought about Atheism Plus. I decided that since I haven’t yet touched on this (and I’m one of the last atheist blogs that hasn’t) I might as well throw my two cents in the hat.



Why the delay on the A+ post from a guy who is obviously starving for content? I didn’t want…

Help needed

Hey good people, here, I have been having a discussion with an anon gentleman going by the moniker j.w who I think lives on this side of the blue ball. 

The discussion, so far has covered several issues among them how the universe came to be, historicity of Jesus, a bit on god and a major part has been on evolution and it is here that I need some help. I have in my responses tried to explain evolution as I…

Female Christianity

http://brainhulklogicsmash.blogspot.com/

----------------------------------------------------------------------

From time to time, we'll have Christians going door to door in our neighborhood trying to sell their religion to everyone and anyone who will listen. One thing that surprises me is how often the proselytizers are women or young girls. This surprises me, because religion often treats women as second…

The Difference Between Philosophy And Religion

 
The Difference Between Philosophy And Religion



I am calling myself atheistic as a part of being apistic.  But there are many people, who call themselves atheists in spite of being religious.  They do not consider this as a contradiction, as long as their preferred religion does not include personalized deities. Buddhism is an example, which is wrongly defined as a philosophy by those alleged…

Slavery Is Fine as Long as It Gets People Closer to God!

So last night, I got into a very heated, very emotional debate with someone on Facebook.  In case you didn't know, that's what Facebook is for.  You get on there, you find some post that some friend has put up, and you troll the shit out of it.  That, obviously, is a joke, but it can sometimes be seen as truth.  I took screen captures of the conversation with the woman I was "debating," but in order to keep identities private, I will not post those screen caps, even though I feel her…

The Fall of Atheism

Is it just me, or does everybody on here sound like pathetic politicians, just trying to make themselves sound more believable putting others down than proving themselves? Has anybody heard of the phrase, "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar?," or has the complex design of human intelligence been reduced to stupidity?

Blogging for logic // Religious assumptions

Greetings all!



I haven't posted on TA for a while but have been lurking the site and enjoying everyone's videos and blogs. Regrettably, my free time has been at a premium, and jumping in to discussions right at the deep end is what has ultimately suffered. That said, I've recently decided to try my hand at blogging as a stress outlet, and to put my usual ramblings and reactions into written words. My most recent posting was of a theological nature, so I figured I'd share it with…

Reason Rally Interview

So I "Googled" myself tonight to see what would come up and I found this article from the Catholic News Service. They interviewed me at the Reason Rally back in March. It's cool to see my quotes in the article and I'm proud of everything I said during that interview :-)

I just thought I'd share. Let me know what you think of the article!
