My very first ramblings...

I must confess, I've never written down my thoughts before. This being my first will make it a learning experience.

When I consider where I've come from and what I've endured in life, I count my many blessings for the creative mindset that's brought me to where I am today. It's funny, I don't recall ever having a thought that wasn't followed by a somehow more logical second opinion. I have yet to discover a problem that cannot be solved if enough careful…

Having it our way for a change

Theists claim atheists believe in nothing, but on closer examination, it’s the theist who believes this life is nothing but a stopover for the next life - a non-material life spent in endless grovelling worship towards a monster in the clouds. Thinking this way devalues this life - the real and only one. 

 

Our brains have evolved to think faithfully. This may have served us well in the past, but now it's nothing but an unfortunate relic. With faith, there is no check system,…

Communities within communities. Social interaction for pack animals stuck in hive animal environments. (Aka, someone rescue me from the BURBS!)

Hey foodies, do-it-yourselfers and all others strangely obsessed with the 'I can do it so much better for so much cheaper' attitude. 

Hell, this will probably apply to environmentalists, greenies, locavores, anyone interested in very passive civil disobedience and probably a few cultists, too.  (Cus let's face it. My atheist commune plans are something of weird urban legend here in the bay area. ) 

I am one of those people that finds a keen sense of satisfaction in the fine…

Rapture, Please Take Away The Bullies.

What no rapture? And here I was looking forward to some fine deals on housing and used cars.



So far I have yet to read anything about the rapture in other time zones.



It's already past six in many parts of the world, and yet nothing is happening!



I suppose I envisioned a kind of "rolling rapture", in which every good obedient Christian ascends to the heavens one time zone at a time. Kind of like god had a commercial for the rapture similar to television… Continue

An atheist milestone. I'm sure we all have them. Small victories.

So yesterday I decided to make the twice yearly call I attempt to my parents. We aren't very close, and that's partially because they are right wing, god fearing, gun toting, religious types. That isn't something that people from my family can agree to disagree on. While on the phone with one of my aunts, I was telling her my present woes and she offered to pray for me.

In the background I heard my mom yell. "You shouldn't say that! She's an atheist!"

To which my aunt yelled back,… Continue

The earth quakes, reasoning goes out the window...

Here in Puerto Rico, there was an earthquake today at 1:30 am. It was a 5.7 on the Richter scale with the epicenter located to the north west of the island close to Añasco. I felt it all the way to my house on the opposite side of the island. My PC monitor started shaking and I thought it was my mind playing tricks but it kept moving for a while so of course it was something entirely different.

Typically and like anywhere else, the unreasonable and magical arguments started pouring… Continue
