A Question About Lying

The question is frequently posed to me, and though I am often vague with my answers, I usually air on the side of cautious honesty.  Is it ever ok to lie?

In this society, or rather our social construct, where almost all is left up to the individual’s interpretation, the line between virtue and vice seems less perceptible than ever before. At least in my experience, of something I have noted repeatedly and in my observation of people’s communication regarding the issue, I have come to…

This is a Science Textbook?

Education is everything, and teaching our children not only the facts, but how to determine fact from fiction is crucial for our world. Science and technology basics are some of the more important aspects of a good education, and teaching the scientific method at an early age can help establish a lifetime of good thinking.



But there are some enemies of accepted scientific fact out there, and like the falsehoods told in… Continue

"Resisting the Green Dragon"

I found this video while sorting through my G+ stream yesterday, and found it too alarming to not blog on the subject. This is surely enough to get your hackles up, and it should concern not only atheists, agnostics and skeptics, but every thinking human on the planet. This is surely going to be of concern in the future.



The video opens with this statement:

"In what has become one of the greatest deceptions of our day, radical environmentalism…

Being raised christian with a rational mind

Ever since I was born my parents have always told me there was a god but no santa clause or tooth fairy. I didn't understand how they expected me to understand why god was invisible and never speaking up for himself. It was hard for me, but I believed with all my might and became what you'd call a hardcore christian. I feared for my soul and everyone else's and never wanted to be raptured because there was so much work to do with all these atheists and catholics.... Really funny now that I…

Favorite Harold camping quote

this  is my absolute favorite.

 

Harold Camping: "I'm not a genius, and I pray all the time for wisdom"

 

From the view of rationality he's basically saying: "I'm not very smart, and I don't do anything to change that"

 

 

It's from the BBC article found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-13516796

"The Bible Is Not A Historical Textbook" from Atheist Climber blog



I'm scared for the future of Australia, and I'll tell you why.



Recently I have been reading reports of education in Queensland that sugest that people who believe the logical fallacies of the Bible have been teaching biblical writings as historical fact. I don't need to break the bible down piece by piece to show you why it is… Continue

Some of my best friends are christians

Lately, I've noticed something. I occasionally come across people on twitter making homophobic comments. Of course, these people all tend to be on the nuttier side of christianity. No surprise there. And, of course, I often call them out on it using a sprinkling of profanity, blasphemy, and personal insults. What can I say? It is my way.



Now, most of these people block me, but a few of them actually try to defend their nasty… Continue
