The Importance of Conversation

Nearly everyday, I walk into my local Starbucks and order my morning coffee. On a particularly rainy day at 7:30am, I hear a woman, Clara, say to a fellow coffee drinker as they exit the store, "Watch your shoe laces!" The woman’s boot laces are untied and dragging. As Clara is speaking aloud, I reply with a minor comedic comment. She excites and begins conversing with me about multiple topics starting with work, age and experience, 2016 Presidential Election, our in born…

Fun with Christians!

Last night, the staff of the church which I serve as Director of Music had a fundraising dinner that was a tremendous amount of FUN. And honestly, even though it was a church event, I don't think the fun we had was even remotely related to religion. We, the staff, served our guests dinner and participated in various games that were inspired by games featured on some late night TV shows, including a fairly epic Lip Sync Battle (a la Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show). I did "Dream On" by…

When a Jehovah's Witness Grows Up to be an Atheist

After all this time, all these years, all these degrees of separation - a mere knock guides me to shedded enemies. It was midmorning when a pair of shadows alerted me to some unexpected presences. I think I knew before I knew, my gut clenching beyond the usual spasm of social anxiety.

The blockers of the light lingered and adjusted themselves and finally put knuckle to…

De-converted by the Bible

My departure from Christianity was the result of a long process of study and prayer. After engaging with atheists at alt.atheism.moderated back in the late nineties, I set out to prove (to myself and, if I could, anyone else that would listen) that the Bible could withstand even the most brutal and earnest assaults on its character.

 

Needless to say, I failed.

 

That experience, along with many follow-up experiences dealing with Christians after I de-converted,…

In The Beginning Was The Herd...

Toda

y, my kid started in a new class room. He is nearing 3 years old in February and already he is ready to move to another class. Now if he can learn to dress and undress himself (besides fully achieving “pottiness”) like the other children he will be on his way. I was so worried about how to teach him to do certain things mainly the basics such as manners, dressing, socializing, but I'm discovering he is learning from the herd. Ah, yes, learning from the herd. The herd comes by any…

The Value of Transgender Sexuality

I know this blog entry will be wandering a bit off topic from the subject of atheism, but I think it plays indirectly into the larger need to express a comprehensive political and social narrative to compete with the Tea Party Glen Beck religious wacko ideology that threatens to conquer American politics. Moreover, I can't get to sleep without getting this off my chest. So here goes.



Medical decisions are questions of cost/benefit analysis. There is a condition. There is a treatment.… Continue

Random Mutation and Natural Selection – An Example

From Atheist Climber Blog



In biology, most random mutations take place on a level that is either unnoticeable or of a nature as to be trivial to a species. Many evolutionary naysayers claim that evolution is false because of their lack of understanding of what mutations are, and how they could possibly be of any benefit to the plant or animal to which it occurs. They tend to… Continue
