World War 2

I visited the New Orleans World War 2 museum.

Tough, emotional time learning about the whole event.

As a martial artist and Tai Chi player, I have learned a great deal about combat and theories which function best in said realm. Hitler and Hirohito had the exact same flaw which allowed the allies to defeat their militaries. Both expanded quickly with their respective forces. Spread thin accross so many captured…

American Politic

Why is America in near constant war?

There is more than one reason.

We like to swagger. We like to sway. It lets us feel the clothes, lets us feel the groove, let us show off a bit. We know we can’t always swagger, but we do it where possible.

The government is run by humans and thus their personal bias bleeds into policy and it makes us sway. When we come to our senses and put in some…

Atheism is Not a Philosophy

humanist

There is a lot that I don't agree with Sam Harris on. I have always loved his 'atheism is not a philosophy' quote though. He wrote it in Letter to a Christian Nation. I have met quite a few atheists and I certainly don't agree with them on everything. Hell, Irish and I don't even share the same exact…

Why war on drugs has failed

I saw this video on google tech talks. It talks about the war on drugs and why it has failed. How can government expect to defeat 500 billion dollar profit industry with a 50 billion dollar investment?

 

Its common sense if people are prohibited and asked to not do something more than anything they will end up doing that. If something is repressed it comes back stronger. Check out the below video to see to get more information about what I am talking about

The WAR on CHRISTmas!

I'm so sick of hearing about "the war on christmas" and seeing any

non-christian (or anyone willing to stand up for any non-christian)

being vilified in the news. Tonight there was a segment on one of my local news affiliates (WTAE Pittsburgh) about a nativity scene being moved from in front of the borough building in a local town after one woman (bravely) wrote in and asked that it be moved. It was moved a whole 20 yards from it's original… Continue

A Short Reflection on Pacifism

One of the things I learned from my Christian indoctination, ironically, was pacifism.

Peace on Earth

Good Will to Men

I was not a fundamentalist. Therefore I was not taught about the apocalypse, the war that would bring the second coming, etc. My family is part of the "Reformed" Presbyterian faith. In other words, my old church took less focus on evangelism and "being a christian soldier" than on the life of Jesus, the example he set,…

Why Can't Cavemen Just Get Along?

Paleontologists have known for a while now that anatomically modern humans and our more attractive cousins, the Neanderthals, lived side by side for 100,000 years. Then between 45,000 and 30,000 years ago the Neanderthal population began to diminish and finally disappeared altogether. Our Modern human ancestors drove them to extinction according to one of… Continue

The Evangelical Quest To Turn Our Soldiers Into Crusaders

Seeing this issue come up on Real Time with Bill Maher last Friday first sparked my interest. It sparked it enough that I decided to go on a hunt for more information to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes, so to speak. Sad to say, it goes tremendously deep indeed and I thank Bill for calling this to people's attention. It is indeed a shocking situation and if you haven't paid it any attention before, I suggest you start now for this may pose the biggest threat to our national security and… Continue

First post; glad to be here.

I am so glad I found this community; so glad I have joined.



Already I am seeing other like minded people on this website that think just like me; yep we atheists actually use our brain for thinking unlike non-atheists who just go along with what the church tells them.



I am so sick of religious bullshit going on in the world; we need to not ban religion but take religion out of governments, schools and other places where they can be harmful to the human… Continue
