About Me:
I'm a god-free Taoist looking for a safe way to play my Les Paul through a Marshall stack, while kayaking.
Why are you here?
I don't really have anywhere else to be right now ;)

To be fair, I'm here to discuss atheistness with other atheists...

I'm also here spread the word about NewsUndies: All the news that shouldn't be news.

I'm also here to invite folks to check out the Church of No, Thanks at

To find out more about me, you can check out my website at

Why you left your religion.
I don't really remember what was the first germ of an idea that caused me to question the faith (it was over 30 years ago, after all), but once I did, it all fell apart pretty readily.

Sarah Silverman says Sell the Vatican...

..but wait... the whole Catholic shtick is "suffering"... right?... and who could be suffering more than people starving to death?! I'll tell you who! The Pope! How do I figure?! Like this: To be a good Catholic, you have to suffer. The Pope WISHES he could suffer, but he HAS to live in the marble palace and sit on the gilded throne and ride in the Mercedes PopeMobile.... He HAS to, because it's his calling... But, because of that, he CAN'T suffer, which causes HIM the greatest suffering OF… Continue

AAIC 2009 and T-Shirts

Posted on September 3, 2009 at 9:47am 2 Comments

I am reticent to foul this landscape with notions of commerce, but... Pruett and I are going to AAIC 2009 in Burbank next month, and to mark the occasion, I put together a couple t-shirt designs, which, while not directly related to AAIC, I thought might be fun to wear around the venue.

Is anyone else from T|A going?

The shirts:

One depicts a hypothetical and obviously flawed design document for "man" with "god"'s approving signature.

The other starts… Continue

On miracles, magic and supernatural physics

Posted on July 29, 2009 at 7:30am 0 Comments

I set aside an hour and a half and watched the Thunderf00t/Ray Comfort discussion, and it got me thinking about the relationship between magic and miracles. I've never, as an adult, believed in either magic or miracles, but for some reason, I'd never really thought about comparing and contrasting them until I saw it.

Here's my consideration of the relations between magic, miracles, gods and physics:…

An oldie but a goodie

Posted on October 1, 2008 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Last fall I went on a "LifeCrest VisionQuest", which included a stop-over in Groom, TX.

Paul, just to be sure, you only wanted to add one of the News Undies and simply forget to add the title to the first one? both came through for approval and I only let one of them through thinking that was the case. let me know if I got it all wrong.
