Let's get something straight.
Not everyone that's perceived as a bitch is actually unhappy.
Let's get another thing straight.
I'm a bitch.
Knowing just what to say and when to say it is a talent of mine.
If the words I type piss you off, usually that was my exact intention. Thanks for playing.
Please don't mistake my mockery for misery. I'm not unhappy, in fact, I'm laughing at you right…Continue
Atheism to me defines only what I don't believe in.
Figuring out what I do? What I stand for? The conclusions I come to based on my observation of human behavior?
Slightly more complicated.
Ok. Much more complicated.
We don't get a user manual. We don't have dogma to follow or holy men to tell us what to do or how to think. As an American, I'm sort of used to that and looking to fill a void.
With my OWN conclusions!
When my mother and her twin sister were children, they used to pretend that they had telepathy.
I don't have to pretend.
I have unlimited text messaging.
The evolution of travel has been amazing, just in the course of a very few lifetimes.
Across-Ocean travel has gone from an anomaly to a rarity to occasional to daily.
The time it takes has been reduced significantly with each step along the way.
(Adaptation and evolution. It always…Continue
If only Saint Peter could have sent a direct message to the Galatians. The first pope never had the chance, but his successor in the apostolic succession, Benedict XVI, has joined the microblogging service. The first…
Ladies, Gents and one probably unconsenting Sloth,
I hereby present you with your prize. True to my word and as promised, here is a virtual lapdance for each and every one of you! Enjoy!
Ok. I won't lie. It's actually a little creepy..
Wow. This is crazy. This is shit my grandmother had to face. Are we devolving? Is this what Iran looked like before the revolution?
I don't self describe as an atheist.
Because I'm not 'an atheist.'
To assume so would to put far more importance than on what the word is worth.
If I had to pick out a hundred words and list them in the order that described me, there would be plenty higher on that list. First and foremost, I'm a woman. I guess physical biology gets the most credit. Then I guess I'd be a diver, because I spend way more time on dive related activities than I do atheism. Maybe…Continue
I am so fucking sick of this argument.
I've been trolling the shit out of Facebook for the last week or so. I can't help it. That's what I do when I have writer's block. I go annoy other people. It makes me feel better. So lately, I've been stirring up hornet;s nests whenever I get the opportunity.
Since I'm not an idiot, I've noticed this predictable progression.
Arguing with Republicans (at least those that I know) is just like arguing with Christians. Maybe that's…Continue
I generally dislike the label 'holiday.'
Being someone who is atheist, I stand on general purpose.
'Holiday' comes from 'Holy Day' or a religious-centric word.
I prefer the much more P.C term of 'observation day.'
Maybe I'll insist on calling it 'obserdays.'
Obserdays. I like that. It sounds a lot like Absurdities. And of course it is a little tongue-in-cheek mockery of theistic traditions.
Cultural memes. Religious memes. They differ from…Continue
Hey foodies, do-it-yourselfers and all others strangely obsessed with the 'I can do it so much better for so much cheaper' attitude.
Hell, this will probably apply to environmentalists, greenies, locavores, anyone interested in very passive civil disobedience and probably a few cultists, too. (Cus let's face it. My atheist commune plans are something of weird urban legend here in the bay area. )
I am one of those people that finds a keen sense of satisfaction in the fine…Continue
Without god(s) to tell me who to hate and who to love, I have to find my own way.
These are my values.
"Judge not least.."
Nope. Wrong again.
For those of you that spread pain, I judge you.
Not by skin color. Not by ancestry. Not by blood or body type.
If you make a decision to cause suffering to another person and hide behind an excuse of religion, culture, preference or simple agreement…Continue
Right, so... someone posted about their buddies being 'deeply hurt' about all the antitheist posts he was making on Facebook. Like Catholic Priests aren't FB fodder enough? :)
So hey man..I can't find your thread cus I'm reaaaaaaaalllly drunk right now, but I wanted to share this with you:
I've been 'out of the closet' to all of my friends and most of my relatives for like three years now. For the most part, the dust has settled and we are all begrudgingly on speaking terms…Continue
I just realized something today.
We will never see a Muslim in the White House.
Not in our time.
That isn't what makes me sad, though. What makes me sad is that when I realized this, I also realized it also means we will never see an Atheist in the White House.
Not in our time.
"A 28-year-old man in Pennsylvania has been charged with murder after telling police…Continue
The Library of Congress keeps a record of "ALL public tweets, ever, since March 2006"
(Yes, I stole this from cracked.com but that's not the point.)
Anyone else think this is damn interesting?
I'm locking this discussion so that we don't have multiple conversations on the same subject since I'm posting this in many different locations around the site.

I've always felt nothing but disdain for the argument of "Well, at least religion keeps some people in line. It teaches good morals."
Mostly because that's bullshit. If you actually read and followed the Christian holy book, you'd see that the morality there is dubious at best, and bat-shit crazy at worst.
True, most Americans aren't so big on stoning other people now. They've instead evolved to support the death penalty and console themselves by pipe-bombing abortion clinics.…Continue
