I give blood because I am good without <insert deity>

I give blood because I want to help other humans.  Not many people know that some types of cancer require a patient to have a full blood transfusions.  In years before my decision to give blood, I would join the 10k Cancer Research run (…

So the Pope said I can go to heaven...

...and that's pretty cool of him. 

I knew there was a reason I wasn't trolling this guy's Twitter account. 

Now, I'm no fan of the job, in general. But this guy seems alright!

My good works are animal adoption charities, veterans programs and of course, my Plant a Row Program,…

The good news?

http://brainhulklogicsmash.blogspot.com/2013/03/the-good-news.html

It never seems to fail... Whenever the door to door religion salesmen come knocking, I'm just not home. Unlike most that want to avoid them, I would actually like to explain the errors of their flawed arguments. Sadly, they either come when only my wife is home, or when we are both out. The latter was the case yesterday. We got back to…

Good People..

In musing about what might become of a vicar if he or she found faith and belief dwindling.. It suddenly struck me that a paradox may have been played out somewhere, at some time. and it may well have happened without the knowledge of the congregation..



I guess a young man (I did have fleeting thoughts about seminaries as a boy), brought up in belief and with the necessary means, might embark upon a journey that he hoped would end well. He would be expecting to complete his…

Book Review: The Good Atheist - That's what he/she said!

I bent the binding of The Good Atheist, Living a Purpose-Filled Life Without God, by Dan Barker, in hopes that I would either come out of it in some way affirmed or finally have a resource for a person struggling with the decision to let go of their faith.  When I closed the book, I felt like a sore eared member of the choir.  The majority of Barker’s book is an appeal to authority and celebrity, a mishap of astonishing proportion when speaking about, to, or for, a community that…

Is religion the Cause why we are good?

I have few other articles that I need to complete and publish, but I want to skip them over for a while to answer an important point that a pious christian is trying to ask me via the Amazon Book review I made for, "The god Delusion", a book by R. Dawkins.

Prelude

Are people good only because they strictly follow a Religion? This was the topic of chapter Six of Dawkins', “The god Delusion”, which he titled exactly, “The Roots of…

Defending The Faith, And Morality, Of NonBelievers

Check out the link at the bottom of this post to listen to the interview from Fresh Air today on NPR:



Humanism--the belief that ethics and morality can be vested in rationality, rather than a supernatural deity--might sound like a departure from faith communities and culture, but according to Greg Epstein, it doesn't have to be.



In his new book, Good Without God: What A Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe, Greg Epstein responds to challenges against humanism that spring… Continue

Us vs. Them

We are good. They are bad.

We are sane. They are mad.

We are right. They are wrong.

We are the best. They are the worst.

We have rights. They shouldn't be allowed.

We are enlightened. They are fools and idiots.

We are chosen by God. They are dupes of satan.

We are holy and rightous. They are an abomination.

We strive for high ideals. They sink to the lowest depravities.

We are contributing members of society. They are parasites and vermin.

We… Continue

Attorney General Refuses to Prosecute "Good Faith Torture" - Could there be such a thing?



Please notice in this picture this man's penis is blurred out because it's the most offensive part of the picture



After many weeks of discussion, President Obama finally coughed up the word we all have been waiting to hear. He relented to using the honest word, the word we’ve been using for five years, the only word that could be applied to our treatment of many “enemy combatants.” It is not a pretty word, in fact it is a shameful word but it is the only accurate… Continue
