|Ursa Minor, the lesser bear, is a very important constellation because it is home to Polaris, the north star. It is also home to the Little Dipper which is very easy to find once you've actually found it. If you don't see it right away just nod and say "Yeah. yeah I see it" but…|

Today in Pakistan a Cyber criminal bill has been passed by the Senate. In April 2016 this bill was passed by National Assembly of Pakistan.
There are some articles in this bill for the people who are involved in terrorism by using social media to be sent to jail for14 years but this article is not for Hafiz Saeed who is working under the Pak Army.
According to the cyber criminal laws the people who question the religious & political authorities would be send to prison for…Continue

Every few months for the last 8 years I get a visit from 2 or 3 Jehovah Witnesses. One of them is the same guy from day one and he likes to bring the “new recruits” along so that they “see a real live atheist”. He thinks that he is teaching them debating skills and I will give him some credit for that. He is rather good at it but not quite a W.L. Craig. I suppose we improve each other’s skillset to a certain degree.
It can be funny sometimes. If I know they are calling I will…Continue
After reciting the entire religious books again and again in Pakistan free thinkers are questioned that why the liberal and secular people dont raise their voices against India for their cruelties in Kashmir.
2nd thing when if something goes wrong in Eu, America or anywhere in west why the secular people start criticizing Islam in Pakistan .

Few days back I talked with some educated muslim women I observed , in Muslim societies women are much interested in leaving religion than men because in muslim societies women are exploited in the name of Islam.
They are not given equal rights.
Their freedom of expression is restricted by religious laws.
They are made the slave of their husbands.
If their husbands are free thinkers & they are staying in a muslim country they have to face the hardship of…Continue

|The Fox and the Goose is a small constellation in the night skies of summer. It sounds like a fairy tale but one of the gruesome sort where the fox murders some poor goose. Of course a fox has to eat too, and probably has to feed a whole den-full of cute little baby foxes. But…|

I don't normally encourage ridicule, but I fondly recall Stephen Colbert's address to the White House correspondents event, poking his humor stick at our purported patriotic hero GW Bush. It felt (to me, at least) like our first, credible crack in the the divine cocoon of our "never forget, we can now kill anyone we want to" political pervert-in-chief.
I wish our media could do this for ISIS. That crack in armor of credibility, that overt disrespect for evil acts of men, gave way…Continue
Is it irony to say that it is ironic how often the word irony is misused?
I help out manning information tables for Atheist Ireland when I can. They are starting to become a regular monthly feature in our bigger cities. The one in Dublin has been operational for three years without a break. While there is competition for prime locations, we have managed to keep our own regular spot on the capital’s main thoroughfare.
Recently a Palestine solidarity group set up a table to our…Continue
