Congress Goes to Recess - Secular Successes and Failures So Far This Year

Congress at Recess As nonbelievers I think 'separation of church and state' issues tend to show up on our radar much more easily than it does for believers. Too few believers realize that separation of church and state is what allows them to practice their flavor of Christianity. So many who push for more Christian influence in government don't seem to realize that they might end up disagreeing with the flavor that comes to power. If only more believers realized this, I think we would have so many more… Continue

Reality Checks, Fact Checks, and Health Care

We've had some discussions about health care recently. I've recently found a few things I think are worth sharing, so thought I'd do a little resurrection of the topic.



For a great piece of satire, or maybe irony... Or maybe he's going for reverse-psychology... Check out this Newsweek article by Jonathan Alter. One… Continue

Its Time For Some New Currency

Oh what a mistake it was adding 'In God We Trust' to the United States currency.



It started with coins in 1864, gained new legs with the motto in 1956, then made its debut on paper currency in 1957.



Before and After


Isn't is about time we think about updating our currency? And while we are at it, shouldn't we drop this blatant violation of the first… Continue

Duelity

duelity Duelity provides a different take on creation versus evolution. With a slightly humorous, and definitely ironic reversal of roles. The creation story is told in a very scientific manner, while the big bang and evolution story is told in a poetic religious manner.





Besides this seeming like a fairly unique idea, the creators have made the two videos so that you can watch them separately, or at the same time.…

[UPDATED] Thousands of Tax Payer Dollars to Add Engraving to Capitol Visitor Center

How irresponsible and wasteful! No matter which side of the political teater-totter you sit on, most of us aren't happy with the current financial situation; both in the economy and in the government. I'm no financial whiz, but I know that right now the government should not be spending thousands (or more likely tens of thousands) of dollars of tax payer money to add a few engravings to the United States Capitol Visitor Center (CVC) (… Continue

MeetUp.com

I went to my second atheist get-together this weekend. Found via MeetUp.com!



Had a great time hanging out with some like-minded people, and lots of interesting discussions.



I don't want to sound like an advertisement, but I'm just really excited about finding a group in my area. So felt the need to share; and to recommend MeetUp since it provided me that opportunity. If you're looking for a group in your area and haven't found one yet, you should check it… Continue

Ireland Makes Blasphemy Illegal

Ireland Makes Blasphemy Illegal

July 9, 2009 by Pastor Mike

Irish atheists are horrified by new legislation making blasphemy illegal, and punishable by a 25,000-Euro fine. Christians of all stripes should be, too.



As part of a revision to defamation legislation, the Dail (Irish Parliament) passed legislation…

"Imagine No Religion" is Blasphemous?

Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF.org) recently put up a billboard near Pell City, Alabama. One of their classics, pulling from a line in one of John Lennon's songs: "Imagine No Religion."



The sign is located on east-bound I-20 just past the Pell City exit. Atheist billboards really are nothing new, especially to… Continue
