Truth in Politics

The government has actual regulations designed to protect consumers and create transparency around what is likely the biggest purchase of their lives. They call it Truth in Lending, and it’s ironic that our representatives can legislate honesty into business, but can’t seem to legislate it into their own business. I’m often reminded of a frequent […]

Unwittingly deistic

I know so many people who are atheists but don’t know it, and are shocked to even hear it suggested. A theist, which is the opposite of an atheist, is a very specific breed of believer. A theist believes in a specific God, a kind of personal God that they can know, and who can […]

Atheists need to wear hats

I’ve been contemplating ways in which people who aren’t theists can reach the lofty heights achieved by theists in leadership positions. I’ve come to the conclusion that non-theists are spending inordinately too much time and energy making logical arguments, talking about annoying things like evidence, and saying things that make people roll their eyes, like […]

I’m Not Adding A Plus To My Atheism

I’m quite put off by this new movement of atheists who feel compelled to add a social and political agenda to their non-belief in the supernatural. Clearly there are issues that affect all of humanity; causes that are worth fighting for. But why would anyone want to equate marriage equality with not believing in gods? […]

Is Pope Francis Confused, or Talking To God?

I have to wonder where the Pope is getting his information. I know he’s Christ’s Vicar on Earth, but it’s not difficult to read The Bible or any of the Catholic Church’s doctrines, or their long and distinguished history. So either the Pope is confused, or he is receiving communication from The Almighty that contradicts […]

Atheists Leap Faithfully You Say?

I read an article in London Free Press’s online “Comment” section that I found upsetting. Not exceedingly so, but enough to prompt me to be here, pecking away at my MacBook. The author of this work is a man named Tom Harpur, who appears to have a website and some other writing to his credit. […]

Neil DeGrasse Tyson is wrong

Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a scientist, and a very popular one. He serves not only in the capacity of a working scientist, but also as one who brings science to the masses, a communicator of science if you will. He hosts television programs as well as appearing as a guest on television programs. For all […]

Calling All Humanists

I think the journey I’ve been on, from the angry ex-Catholic to the liberated and happy atheist I am today, is one I had to take alone. I needed an impetus after years, hell decades, of leaving religion and all its trappings in the broom closet of my mind, and I got one from my […]

Never Forget Thomas Aikenhead

On this day in 1697, a 20-year old medical student was summarily executed in Britain for the unspeakable crime of blasphemy. Thomas Aikenhead was the last person ever put to death in Britain for the criminal act of not believing the tales of myth and legend that were cobbled together by Bronze Age men of […]
