I must admit, I'm not a big fan of Richard Dawkins or Steve Pinker for that matter. They're quite ethnocentric. As a feminist and someone who veers more towards the left, I can't stand their Darwinian style elitism. I'm looking for more equitable Athiest or Agnostic thinkers, if anyone could recommend anything please inbox or comment. I'm new to this site so go easy on me. Also any texts that criticize main theological issues in Islam would be great. Documentaries are also welcome. If you're…Continue

Even the most skeptical among us have had this happen: A friend or relative forwards an e-mail from an organization with a safe-sounding name (“The Clean Air Initiative,” “The Center for Consumer Freedom”), but the e-mail is filled with scary assertions, usually of a political nature. If the Obama-care health bill is passed, Grandma will face a “death panel” that will decide if she lives or…Continue

So last night, I got into a very heated, very emotional debate with someone on Facebook. In case you didn't know, that's what Facebook is for. You get on there, you find some post that some friend has put up, and you troll the shit out of it. That, obviously, is a joke, but it can sometimes be seen as truth. I took screen captures of the conversation with the woman I was "debating," but in order to keep identities private, I will not post those screen caps, even though I feel her…Continue
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.…Continue
(If you want to suggest things maybe I should say to this girl after reading the whole long conversation so far, let me know. I'd be grateful for any suggestions.)
The girl (I'm assuming a girl, because she found me through this new video of mine:Continue

Near the end of the first act of Kander and Ebb’s musical “Cabaret”, the character Herr Schultz observes, “How the world can change, it can change like that, due to one little word: ‘Married.’” Just a little over two weeks ago, on June 24, 2011, it seemed as if the world had changed “like that.” The State of New York extended the legal right to marry to same-sex couples—something it had declined to…Continue

I foudn this article on Yahoo!'s front page earlier:
It's obviously listed under the "Health" section of the site, though I feel that it should be nowhere near that section at all. Being both an Atheist and a general skeptic, as time passes it becomes increasingly annoying to see articles like…Continue
A friend of mine recently turned me on to this incredible site, Primordial Soop. Its hosts, Deon Barnard, Suzanne Patterson, Basil Polydorou, and Brian Coughlan are all intelligent, well-spoken, and well-read South Africans or former South Africans who hold biweekly debates around South African…Continue

This video is a bit outdated, okay, more than a bit. It is Sam Harris' talk at the AAI 2007 conference in Washington, DC, but I had not seen it until now.
The reason I am posting it here is because I really want to hear your opinions on the labels topic.
I have always stated that my world views don't define me, don't define who I am as a person, but I also think we need to be outspoken on the way we see the faith…Continue
