"If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple." ~ Jesus
This explains a lot of the occidental self loathing.…

I recognize that I'm probably a bit odd for an Atheist, heck, I'm a bit odd for a human. One of my many odd stances is in my denial of the Other. Notice the big "O" there? I'm talking about the Other in philosophical terms; that which is separate from the Self. I do not think it exists and I don't make any appeals to some of the crazy stuff that the usual proponents of of such statements usually resort to. There's no need for a collective unconscious. No need for a psychic connection between… Continue

So I am currently reading The handbook to Higher consciousness by Ken Keyes Jr, and i have to say, Nothing I'v ever read or experienced has opened my mind more than this book. i'v never been more happy or enlightened(if I may use that word) in my life. It's showed me all the unnecessary things people strive for to be happy, when all along it was right here in front of them. Weather that be money, skills, possessions, or anything material in nature. It's showed me, and I'm not there yet, how to… Continue

Do you think that there are enough books written on deconverting from religion? Do you think there need to be more? Which kind of books on ex - christianity, do you think are most needed? Personal accounts? Scientific accounts? Historical accounts?

My life has presented me with no shortage of opportunities to re-evaluate my thinking, or to show me my short falls when it comes to my path of reasoning. It never comes when I think it will, nor will it present itself in a comfortable manner. My latest moment of clarity came when I asked a question of other people that I had not asked of myself in years, "Do MLK's accomplishments in the area of civil rights outshine his anti-Semitism enough we can call him a hero without shame?" It was not… Continue

I've got a new project coming out.

The serials that come out on Monday were authored by my dear friend with my limited contribution.
In a few weeks, my own serial will start. This is my first real attempt at fiction. Our site isn't just for entertainment. It's a reader-participation site where you can help us… Continue

I, being of sound mind and body, do declare sovereignty over myself. I alone have the right to decide what I put into my mind and what I put into my body. I alone have the right to decide what I expose my mind and body to.
Wearing a seatbelt in a car is a good safety measure and wearing a helmet on a motorcycle is a life saving measure, but I should not be told that I have to do it. If I don't use seatbelts or helmets, than it will be my cold, dead body lying on the ground,… Continue

Note: My mother-in-law asked me to copy some disks by the self-help guru/mystic/faith healer/supernatural freak Caroline Myss. I said that I would if I had a chance to present evidence for the other side (rational thought). This is the letter that was included in this little "care package". I also included a disk that contained three Penn and Teller episodes, some demonstrations on cold reading and various James Randi videos. The audience consists of several… Continue

I’ve been thinking about the James Arthur Ray situation. You know, the guy who was on Oprah talking about “The Secret?” The one who killed three people by tricking them into fasting for days and then shutting them up in a sweat lodge so they could have visions and learn to become “spiritual warriors?” Yeah, him.
Did you know that he was charging as much as $9,000 a head for his five day retreat? Just to not feed people and stuff them in a hot tent while he regurgitated the crap from… Continue
