Why I may one day encourage my father to keep believeing.

It's a strange crossroads that I've found myself. It all started last week when I received a text message seemingly out of the blue from my stepmother. She had been looking at something online and I guess decided that she should suggest I check out William Lane Craig's Reasonable Faith. I told her that I was well aware of the man and his arguments and I received in reply the "I'm worried about your eternal soul" conversation only that she used the word "future" instead of "eternal soul", but…

Chewing the Fat.

Sometimes you think about something and then keep noticing it popping up everywhere. So anyway I was recently pondering in a not to serious manner if there were any links between Atheism and fitness and in particular obesity. Then I heard a DJ on a radio talk show comment that it was quite likely that Atheists were unfit and overweight because they probably have not much concern about the future. You know the way we don’t have a positive outlook on life because we are so miserable all the…

Case for judicial reform

Lady justice is blind, its the law and facts that will drive the results of the court cases. But unfortunately judges are deciding cases based on their political beliefs and judges who decide the cases impartially are being removed from their job. 

In the 1800's after the civil war blacks were given voting rights in the south but the supreme court ruled people are separate but equal leading…

Ann Coulter Should Take Her Own Advice

 

 

While discussing the individual mandate in the new health care reform, Ann Coulter claimed that not only is the mandate unconstitutional but Republicans should come out and impose a mandate that all citizens should be forced to buy a gun and a bible and that "there's a lot more evidence that owning a gun and a Bible is better for society than owning health Insurance."

 

Where to start...

 

Ok, first off, no.…

Reason to care # 314,159,265

With the passage of the US health care bill being hailed as a landmark victory for Obama, I think it might be appropriate to get the opinions of the baby-killers among us who see the glaring hypocrisy in this bill.



As most of you already know, this bill hinges on the promise Obama made that abortion will NOT be covered. Keeping to the central theme of this website (and not even going into the details of how the health care issue even came into public discourse), I find it highly… Continue

Health Care Reform: Canada rejoices for y'all!

I've been watching some of the American news coverage of the health care debate with great interest. In fact, i imagine most Canadians have been taking a special interest in the debate. Universal health care is one of the cornerstones of our way of life, and even though the system has it's challenges, a recent survey showed that 90% of Canadians support universal health care and think Obama is on the right track. I can… Continue

Am I the only one who is mad at this?

Call me a conservative, but never call me a religious zealot all for "pro-life" when it's convienent. This whole debacle with the Health Care reform bill... the fact that they put anti-abortion rhetoric in there just to get the republicans to sign off DISGUSTS me! Either they have a sound plan and all people will vote for it because it's sound or you don't. Playing for the political vote just to get *some* of what you want by introducing whacked out legislature is offensive in my… Continue

Here are 13 problems with the current health care bills (with my personal thoughts)

My thoughts on Michael Moore's diary:



1. No cost controls on insurance companies. The coming sharp increases in premiums, deductibles, co-pays, co-insurance, etc. will quickly outpace any projected protections from caps on out-of-pocket costs.



WTF



2. Insurance companies will continue to be able to use marketing… Continue

Religion and your mental health.

Picture youself in bed, waiting to fall asleep, when suddenly you start seeing millions of stars falling right in front of you. You see a radiant light, one brighter than the rest, mingling with beautiful colours. You feel ecstatic. Everything appears to be shimmering and boiling and then, as suddenly as it came, it dissipates. Throughout all of this, you are fully awake. How would you react?



How about if you were sitting in a room with a group of people and the whole room became… Continue

On August 20th, a collection of doctors in Santa Rosa, California, assembled on a corner and lobbied the public to support the public health care option. EmpireReport.org reporter, John Stiffler, interviewed some of the doctors and created a video. What do you think?

From www.anti-theist.co.uk :

Well if you send one of our boys to the hospital I’ll be sending one of yours to the morgue! Here are my arguments against those who want to attack the NHS, but first a brief… Continue

Ten-Year Government Study Denies Effectiveness of Most Alternative Treatments

Big surprise here (not). A 10-year study funded by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine to the tune of $2.5 billion has found that glucosamine and chondroitin, black cohosh, saw palmetto, and shark cartilage fair no better than placebo in treating their targeted ailments, much as echinacea had previously been found to be no help in… Continue
