What brought you to Atheist Universe?
I'm a semi-retired electrical engineer who has a rather eclectic background, never mind a few miles on the odometer. I suppose I was an "apatheist" for quite a while - largely indifferent to the whole issue of gods - but after 9/11 and the more blatant appearance of evangelicals and Dominionists on the scene, my atheism has finally come to the fore.

Other interests include music, especially classical, high-end stereo and home theater (and with that, CD and DVD collecting), enthusiasm for cars and motoring, single-malt whisky and biking.

"Mrs. B's story is very reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode entitled, The Hunt."

Stephen commented on Loren Miller's blog post Krauss, Silverman, and Feet of Clay
"Exactly, Loren, we must always take seriously all accusations of inappropriate behaviour but innocent until proven guilty must always come first."

Loren Miller commented on Loren Miller's blog post Krauss, Silverman, and Feet of Clay
"There is a difference between believing an accusation, regardless of source, and ACKNOWLEDGING an accusation, as a prelude to moving forward with investigation and possible formal charges.  To do otherwise would be to assume guilt and require…"

Stephen commented on Loren Miller's blog post Krauss, Silverman, and Feet of Clay
"When I suggested the same online the other day I was told to shut up because we must always believe a woman's accusations. Whilst I totally support the #Me Too movement. this sort of atmosphere infantilises woman and presumes they cant look…"

Loren Miller commented on Loren Miller's blog post Krauss, Silverman, and Feet of Clay
"I agree, Stephen.  I'm all for the #MeToo movement, but I also will insist that accusation is not equivalent to conviction in a court of law.  What makes me wary is that shaming in the public sphere may become a substitute for the…"

Stephen commented on Loren Miller's blog post Krauss, Silverman, and Feet of Clay

Krauss, Silverman, and Feet of Clay

It was late February, 2018 when I first learned about issues regarding Lawrence Krauss and his inappropriate behavior toward women. Then in the first week of March, I got an email from American Atheists, indicating that David Silverman was being suspended from the presidency of that organization, pending an investigation. One week later, I learned that he has been removed from that position. In both cases, the only forthcoming source of details regarding both Krauss and Silverman is Buzzfeed, a…See More

Chris replied to Loren Miller's discussion An Extraordinary Discussion with Ibrahim Al-Buleihi in the group Islamic Fascism [Political Islam]
"Shura Counlil Member Ibrahim Al-Buleihi is an interesting guy. I find it suprising that it was broadcast. If we got off oil, we wouldn't have to deal Wahhabism and that sect. Blurrting expletives."

Loren Miller commented on Loren Miller's blog post A Never-Ending Battle?
"Intriguing, Clayton. Sadly, the evangelicals already have the idea in their head that gays are ICKY, and Yahweh doesn't like them at all.  Telling them, "Sorry, folks, there was an error in translation" isn't likely to…"

Clayton Rhodes commented on Loren Miller's blog post A Never-Ending Battle?
"The reason that God's sheep  hate Gays is becouse  during the supposed time of Moses the Baal worshiuppers would engage in homosexuality  as a fertillity cult. This is why the old testament Says homosexuality is a sin. Also the…"

A Never-Ending Battle?

Posted on July 12, 2017 at 9:10am 3 Comments

I have no illusions that there’s an endgame.  These problems never go away.  You have to educate every single generation about this and make sure it doesn’t creep back into our society.  There’s no sense in which the job is ever done.

Just for the record, Tim Gill is a software engineer and rights advocate, who has been an integral part of the thrust for LGBTQ equality.  His influence spans from the 2003 Goodridge v Dept. of Public Health case to the…

The Tale of a Billboard for the RNC

Posted on June 28, 2016 at 7:05am 8 Comments

It was something over a year ago that I learned that Cleveland was going to be the site of the 2016 Republican National Convention. The prospect of having a bunch of misogynistic, homophobic, mostly white guys invading The Best Location in the Nation was not a welcome thought, as you might well imagine, and that many of them were scornful of the concept of church/state separation did not help matters. However, I was encouraged by some discussion at a meeting of the Northern Ohio Freethought…

Reason Rally 2016 – Photo Album

Posted on June 13, 2016 at 9:30am 0 Comments

There are lot of people I've met online since I became an atheist, many of them I am glad to call, "friend."  Still, it's something altogether different to MEET these same people in the flesh, or at least be close enough to photograph and hear them speak live.  Being able to do that a few times this past June 4th was as valuable to me as being able to attend the Rally itself, and I am glad to share with you some of those very neat moments here.





Here's Daniel and I.…
