A Question of Social Classism

Greetings, friends.



I will preface this question with a statement of my own ignorance.  My formal education was in the field of graphic design and my independent study is primarily centered around music history and the sociological impact of music on global culture.  As such I have not explored economics or social classism and have little knowledge of economic history or contemporary trends.



However, recently I have been considering my place in the socio-economic system…

The Contribution Of Religion To The Ubiquitous Desensitization To Harming

The Ubiquitous Desensitization To Harming



The biological asymmetry of the survival of the human species depending on pregnancies and births being severe harm only to women, while men are spared, is no rational justification for accepting harming as natural.
In entry 552 I attributed…

human nature (a message to everyone)

God seems to be the only reason people claim to be socially loving and caring, without god do we really revert to lonesome creatures?

I don't think it's in human nature to be individually separated from everyone, the way churches do and claim otherwise. uniting few and only separating them from the world. But even if the argument was made that men have moved forward through centuries of social stigmas and hundreds of religions. From a "barbaric" alpha dominated, kill or be killed…

Life, the universe, and everything

As an opener I'd like to state that my worldview has absolutely nothing to do with my atheism. I like to think that were I a theist I would still hold life, the universe, and everything in exactly the same regards. This post is not intended to answer any questions about nor explain my view on theism. Correlation does not imply causation. That being said, let us proceed.

 

Where did we…

..I'm not a liberal.

(But I'm thinking of starting a brand name. :)

 

I participate in more than a few news sites.  In fact, my cousin owns one of my favorites (No, I'm not telling which one.) 

I stay as publicly active on TA as possible. 

I vote in EVERY government election. 

We have come a long way.

We are quite possibly living in one of the most significant times in modern…

Thank God for Allowing Me to Send Another Tweet

Because I have a Twitter and a Facebook and am connected with those who are religious, I constantly see posts that follow this theme: "Thank god for allowing me to see another day."



After my initial reaction of a slight chuckle of amusement and I really start to think about the "rationale" behind these posts, I get really annoyed. How arrogant do you have to be to thank god for allowing you to live another day? Like he personally goes through a… Continue

TSBOE Votes on Texan Curriculum Standards

Today, the Texas State Board of Education voted on curriculum standards of social studies for the Texan public school system. As I am sure most of you are aware, these standards will affect many other states as publishers will often tailor textbooks specifically to meet Texan requirements. This vote followed several days of debate as final amendments were proposed.



Cynthia Dunbar, one of the strongest voices for the SBOE's conservative voting block, decided that a nice, long… Continue

Why Do Atheists Meet Together?

A lot of atheists in the United States come from religious families and communities. Coming from that kind of situation, we have to deal with just about everyone around us telling us our way of viewing the world is bad and evil. If religion is very important to us, as it was to me, we also deal with our own internalized indoctrination.…
