I've been working with Bwambale Robert, the project director of the Kasese Humanist Primary School in Uganda on a way to get more nutritious meals to their young students
I'm pleased to announce the launch of a two-phase project to get a large secure coop built on the school! Chickens mean eggs.… Continue

My first blog.. let's hope we don't get bored?
I have been working alongside people of whom moved to my country from India. When i started my job (my FIRST job at 16) I hoped i could be guided and helped along the way. Don't get me wrong- i was; by the owner. He (who came from KENYA and INDIA) left us in charge when he thought i was able to sustain the shop on my own (after three months) Which meant i was left to work around my manager and three colleagues (one of which no… Continue

Somehow I feel priviliged when I read the stories here. I was brought up in a non religious household, I have never been inside a church unless it was a funeral or baptism. I didn't think it was odd as a child. My dad was a flaming communist, which also colored my oppinion on religion and politics. But that was really not the point of this blog entry, and yet it is.
I like any other parent, teaches my children what I believe to be the "truth", and my honest oppinion on Religion is,… Continue

School started back for my fourth grader last week, and I was taken aback when he came home and told me about a little playground debate he had with his classmates about the existence or nonexistence of God.
My son knows that I'm an atheist, while his mother is a God believer. We've had several, mostly, civil debates about God and religion, but I have never forced my views upon my children. And besides taking them to church on occasion, my wife doesn't push her beliefs onto them… Continue

Ever since I was born my parents have always told me there was a god but no santa clause or tooth fairy. I didn't understand how they expected me to understand why god was invisible and never speaking up for himself. It was hard for me, but I believed with all my might and became what you'd call a hardcore christian. I feared for my soul and everyone else's and never wanted to be raptured because there was so much work to do with all these atheists and catholics.... Really funny now that I… Continue

I love watching my kid grow. She's learning more and more each day and her imagination just amazes me. She has recently been wanting to learn about Earth and other planets. We look up at the stars at night and I try to explain how far away each star really is. I've also bought several science-themed booked for her and she loves them!
As she's been learning about about the Universe, she has began to create her own version of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." She now… Continue

Do you feel yourself holding back in a conversation because you don't want to sound overly 'smart' or offending the opposing side? I sometimes find myself doing so. Sometimes, I have to watch my language because, let's face it, some people 'don't know them big words.' I also find myself holding back because I don't want to upset anyone or make anyone feel as if I'm picking on them. I see myself doing this all the time...
A friend of mine asked for facebook prayers [I have… Continue

While reading "The God Delusion," Dawkins points out Camp Quest, a secular camp for children and adults. I immediately put the book down and searched for information. What do ya know! The first annual camp in SOUTH CAROLINA will be taking place this October. (There are others around the country and for those with children, I encourage you to take a look).
From their website:

American education has a reputation for being abysmal for a developed country. There are many factors that go into this... but one that is not addressed enough is the problem of "parrot learning." In recent years american citizens, parents, and educators have started to learn about this deep problem [at least they have found the tip of the iceberg] - standardized tests. The SAT has come under fire - which it deserves - because it promotes parrot learning. It encourages children to memorize… Continue

y, my kid started in a new class room. He is nearing 3 years old in February and already he is ready to move to another class. Now if he can learn to dress and undress himself (besides fully achieving “pottiness”) like the other children he will be on his way. I was so worried about how to teach him to do certain things mainly the basics such as manners, dressing, socializing, but I'm discovering he is learning from the herd. Ah, yes, learning from the herd. The herd comes by any… Continue

I got me a place of my own and my parents were kind enough to sign me up for their church's newsletter I glanced at it and came across this article..... figured it would get some discussion going.
Religion is Good for children
Children with religious parents are better behaved and appear happier than children reared by parents without the influence of religious faith, a new study has shown.
The first study to examine the impact of religion on the development of young… Continue

If someone was brought up in a controlled environment where information was filtered and they were given zero information about god, what would their belief/value system become?
Does god have a way of communicating with people or has he devolved the spiritual continuence on the parents of the child to bring said child up in said faith?
I wonder how many children who are brought up in faith A, sudenly denounce it and adopt faith B? The lack of wholescale movement to the 'one… Continue

I live in Texas.
I’ve always been an atheist.
All my life I’ve had to put up with these bible pounding clowns who think their “Manure” does not stink.
Well it does.
I’ve seen these clown just ruin a college.
At first there were no preachers on the Board of Regents.
Then one day there was one.
The next thing you knew all the Regents were preachers.
That lead to the demise of the college.
It lost it’s… Continue

As the BSA propagated acts of prejudice against nearly a quarter of the country’s population by banning… Continue

In a story from the Detroit Free Press
this week, a local school district admitted that it had made a mistake in handing out permission slips to students at an elementary school to attend off-campus weekly religious classes during school hours. The problem was not that the religious classes are being offered to the students, but that the… Continue

I had posted something a long the lines of this on a random site asking questions about religion... and well lets say it was picked apart by um well everyone... but...
I think it is 100% wrong for children to be baptized and forced in to a religion when they cant even sit up on their own.
Choosing a religion is something that should mean something to the person choosing entering which religion they choose.
I was baptized in the Catholic Church because my Mother… Continue
