Human Rights...

Human Rights are not 'god given', if they were, we'd have a terrible time deciding what a human is. As an Atheist it's simple for me - all homo sapiens are human beings. No religion can change this! So, if you're reading this and are indeed of the homo genus, you are human; if you're not  -…

The Tyranny Vs the Humans of LGBT

Hello world, I am Réasúnach! As you can well see I have called this blog “The Tyranny vs the Humans of LGBT”. The tyranny is indeed in reference to the majority of mainstream religions practiced on this planet to this day, mainly Christianity & Islam. 

I quite very purposely use the phrase “the humans of the LGBT”. Too often are the LGBT treated as less than human or second class citizens,which by the way there is no justification. I recall once coming across an…

On Religious Faith

Of course, science is not the enemy of religious faith. Sanity is. (ichbindaswortistich)

Over the ages, all religious pretensions, regardless of the respective faith of which they may have originated, have been disproved beyond any reasonable doubt. The earth is not flat but a sphere. The earth revolves about the sun, not vice versa. The earth is not the centre of the universe but a tiny planet in only one of myriads…

Egyptian Atheist risks her life and poses nude for freedom and human rights!

I absolutely admire this young brave lady and her boyfriend for standing up against tyranny. In a country that has Islamic fervor, these brave young individuals have sent a statement to those who value freedom to not be afraid of speaking up for your values. And what are those values? FREEDOM. Deciding what to do with your life and how to express yourself. I stand with these brave young souls for 110% - and this is coming from an…

Somali Islamists maintain aid ban and deny famine

I had to repost this..I posted it when the terrorist controversy happened so it didn't get more attention but it is urgent..

 

More from the "religion of peace" - they would rather have their own people die than to receive aid and food from the international community and the United…

Morals: Humans are the most important?

   Human-centric thought bothers me. Flipping through National Geographic (June 2011) I came across a brilliant piece on China's rapid, energy hungry growth and the steps many private and governmental organizations are taking to limit its environmental impact. China has relied on coal powered plants for a long time and it shows. With estimates nearly doubling the amount of power China will need to fuel itself over the coming decade, green energy is going to be very important. But the article…

Damon Fowler- An Atheist Hero

Damon Fowler, a high school senior at Bastrop High School in Louisiana, is being called an Atheist Hero in many forums and blogs this morning. Damon called for his school not to use a Christian prayer during their graduation ceremony, citing Louisiana law. Due to a threat of the ACLU, the school district decided to remove the prayer from their graduation program...but things only got worse for Damon. He has received death threats from other students, been slandered by his teacher, and has…

Ghosts? Probably Not...

I'm currently reading "The Mothman Prophesies" by John A. Keel. [I know... you can laugh at me]. I chose to read it because despite my being an atheist who is an extreme skeptic of anything supernatural... I haven't lost my taste for a good spooky tale. Being the thrill-chaser that I am, I enjoy all sorts of things that give a good scare... horror movies, rollar coasters, ghost stories, urban legends... and [as I apparently found out last Monday] scaling the side of a 15-foot [~4.6 m] rocky…

Life, the universe, and everything

As an opener I'd like to state that my worldview has absolutely nothing to do with my atheism. I like to think that were I a theist I would still hold life, the universe, and everything in exactly the same regards. This post is not intended to answer any questions about nor explain my view on theism. Correlation does not imply causation. That being said, let us proceed.

 

Where did we…

A Better world=No religion

HEy all

Its been awhile since i blogged here but i had some thoughts on my head.

 

I think that religion (animism, poly, then monotheism) is so embedded in human history that its purpose was to articulate the chaos that makes up the natural world and also explains the suffering and frustration  afflicted by human inhabitants. In other words, religion provided a method for the worlds madness.

 

Now here's my question do you think that if we had world peace,…

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

Can Humans Comprehend Death?

The human brain is a fantastic piece of hardware that can run countless calculations at once and analyze both short and long term situations and consequences. An interesting theory was posed in my elective philosophy class (before winter break) about the very nature on understanding death. My professor told us that it is impossible for the human mind to mentally comprehend "death" because death itself is the absence of consciousness, the absence of calculated thought processes that form what we… Continue

Curing the Gay

>What the hades, Uganda? You've determined that homosexuality is a psychological problem and that people can choose not to be gay if they work really hard at it. Where in the frilly heck did you get that idea?





Damn. Go Rachel for "..if you believe the debunked unscientific claptrap they're selling." I'm so tired of the fake balance we so often see in news (like having Christians on to discuss what… Continue

The Brain, the Whole Brain and Nothing but the Brain

This blog post stems from another discussion (elsewhere) that segued into the topic of mind versus brain. In order to illustrate that the mind is more than just the brain, I described the following scenario . . .


What it would be like if you were born completely paralyzed, with a normal brain but without a sensory nervous system to deliver stimuli to your brain from your sensory organs? Would it be possible to think or to have memories? In what ways could you be considered… Continue
