The evolution of God

Since man as discovered his consciousness and began to live in groups, he has thought and wondered about the beauty of nature, the vastness of space and immensity of time. Since then he has searched for a creator of this universe and all its constituents. This was mans first perception about God, ‘the creator’. As time passed by man discovered his ignorance about certain things that surrounded him thus he attributed most things beyond his comprehension or understanding to…

My Beliefs

What keeps me away from theism is really simple, I'm not nine anymore.

Also, I have more important things to worry about than eternal damnation and sucking up to a big hairy white guy in the sky. That being said, I'm currently studying Graphic Design and would love any tips on the industry if you've got them!

Welcome to our Semi-Dark Age: The Darkness Strikes Back

I've begun a series of video-essays on YouTube titled "Welcome to our Semi-Dark Age". The first episode is now up (in three parts, due to time-length restrictions by YouTube) - hopefully, my skills at video recording/editing will improve as I make more videos. Similarly, my pronunciation of English words remains a work in progress ... In any case, I've embedded herein the three videos of this first episode of the series, titled…

Creationism again rears its ugly head

Texas leaders debate teaching creationism in schools.



http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/07/22/us-creationism-texas-idUSTRE76L07Q20110722



Debate? The debate is over. creationism and 'intelligent design' are anti-science coupled with irresponsible dogmatic religion. The only teaching of the pseudoscience of creationism and 'intelligent design' is best done as a historical and… Continue

Texas can’t catch a break.

(Cross-posted from my actual blog, hosted by the good folks here at Think Atheist!)

When it comes to its education standards, Texas has had a lot of bad luck these last few years.

Whether they were contending with a willfully ignorant dentist whom Texas Governor Rick Perry somehow thought was qualified to chair the State Board of Education (SBoE) and who…

Teaching Creationism and the Nobel Prize

Just some random thoughts I had while in the shower which I, of course, took while wearing a bathing suit because, as we all know, god cannot tolerate nudity.



Obviously, some time has passed since President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. But the thought only came into my head just today - how many people who believe that Creationism/Intelligent Design should be taught in schools and NOT evolution were also upset that Obama won the Peace prize. Personally, I don't think they should… Continue

Need a Graphic Artist or Something... PLEASE HELP!

This is technically off-topic for an Atheist website, but, then, this is the only place I'm reasonably assured to get a response or two, so...

 

Okay... here's the deal...

I need a graphic design done. It should be really simple to do, because there's no color other than black to it. You can put it on a white background if you want.



 

Basically, what I need is a computer-rendition of a tattoo that I really, really want. Sadly, I am not an artist... okay,… Continue

Unintelligent Design

I started writing an "Unintelligent Design" book, documenting the problems with thinking that humans are intelligently designed. I started it about a year ago and am about 80 pages in but I have slowed considerably. I have all my ideas in line, but ran out of time and motivation. I am a medical student in Cleveland and really see a lot of flaws in the human body, having cut into several of them post-mortem. Just saying, and it's nothing new, that we are a poor fit for any environment; we are… Continue

Giving Creationism Appropriate Time in the Classroom

We hear a lot about how since there are working scientists who are critics of the theory of evolution through natural selection, it is a contradiction of our values of tolerance and skepticism to confine science teaching in high schools to ... um ... science. OK, if we want to put science curriculum up for a vote, let's calculate out how much time we should spend in high school science class in order to give these critics their due.



Let's look at the data. According to the Census… Continue

Public Relations and Science.

I caught this documentary the other day:







Flock of Dodos, about the intelligent design v. evolution debate raging in our school boards. It is pro-evolution, but also paints a melancholy picture of the evolution side, and why we are "Losing" on the public relations front (sort of). Although I want to add that we won in Kansas,…

"The importance of secular education" from Atheist Climber Blog

From Atheist Climber blog



As a child I was often told I had a vivid imagination, one that was filled with wonder and fantasy, and I loved the stories my parents would read to me. But I learned at a very young age that monsters and leprechauns were not real. While my imagination was allowed to flourish, my inquisitive nature was such that if I wanted to know about something, I was always… Continue

The Strange Case of Francis Collins

Posted August 5, 2009



by: Sam Harris (www.reasonproject.org)



It is widely claimed that there can be no conflict, in principle, between science and religion because many scientists are themselves “religious,” and some even believe in the God of Abraham and in the truth of ancient miracles. Even religious extremists value some of the products of science—antibiotics, computers, bombs, etc.—and these seeds of inquisitiveness, we are told, can be patiently nurtured in a way… Continue
