Freethought Social + Meetup!

Yesterday morning, representing the Houston Atheists, I joined roughly fifty other secular Houstonians for a freethought coffee social. The meetup was organized by the Houston Freethought Alliance, with a goal of bringing our groups together for secular fellowship.…

Pentecostal Holiness

This small denomination of the great web of Christianity is not known of by many people.  This is due mostly to the inherent qualities of the religion itself.  The men must keep their hair short and keep their faces shaven.  The women can not cut their hair, nor wear makeup or jewelry of any kind.  They must only wear ankle-length skirts/dresses and cover their arms at least to the elbow at all times.  Though they do not have to wear bonnets (one of the only differences between them and…

I Will Not Be Told: Stephen Fry's Speech at Harvard

Previously I mentioned I was going to see Stephen Fry live in Feb. Well, that was today. 

From my blog:



I just attended Stephen Fry's acceptance of the Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism, given by the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard.  His speech was quite different than the one he gave for the Intelligence² Debate.  The main…

Atheist Day of Silence

This is not just a thought, it's a rally call. Religions have holy days, days where the members must do, or not do, a thing, or things, to show their allegiance to their cause, which they call faith. Often these are called Faith Days. As atheists we do not have these opportunities to show our equally strong and valid No god viewpoint, or to likewise take time off work for that purpose.

Several friends and a number of my YouTube subscribers have asked me to weigh in on the electoral success of Proposition 1 in Maine, which repealed a statute enacted by the Maine legislature and signed into law by its governor that extended the legal right to marry to same-sex couples in the state. 53% voted to repeal the statute, 47% voted to retain it – a result similar to the 2008 vote for Proposition 8 in California (52% in favor, 48% against), but well short of the trouncing same-sex… Continue

AHA billboard vandalized again!

Washington, D.C -- An individual or individuals have defaced a billboard in Moscow, Idaho… again. The billboard originally read "Millions are good without God" but was partially obscured with blue paint to now read "Millions are good with God". It's the second time the American Humanist Association (AHA)-sponsored billboard has been vandalized in two weeks. In the first instance the word "without" was completely blacked out, after which the AHA quickly replaced the billboard. The advertisement,… Continue

Of Humanist Symposia and Amazing Meetings

The 37th Human Symposium is up, with some great links. And I'm in it! I admit, I'm usually more of a Carnival of the Godless kinda guy, and I don't get to read all that much about actual humanism itself, away from all the anti-religious stuff.
