Threatened by a Theist's Morality

This is what comes to mind when I think of god's morality. In fact it's the gold standard from my point of view in which theists fail miserably to claim the high ground.





As an atheist, I follow the basic rules of the land; at least the ones common in all societies. I do not kill, because…

Boonsri Dickinson finds real, authentic Thai Food at Lers Ros

Funny, I don't remember eating Thai food for breakfast but this is what she remembers,

Thai people love cooking. My mom would spend all day in the kitchen making enough food to last the entire week. For my first 18 years, I ate mostly Thai food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I remember feeling the spice roar through my nerves, creating this intense fire inside my body. The…

Reply To All

Recently life has been a bit more fun. I haven't been on anyone's emailing
list for years, which I attribute to my desire to reply to all when
said religious or political propaganda finds it's way into my
mailbox. Happily, the last few months I have once again been
receiving the aforementioned bullshit,…

Cultural Isolation?

Being an outspoken, or at least out of the closet, atheist, can have a definite downside; isolation from your local community. Sure, you might find one or two fellow atheists to converse with, but for the most part, you're on your own.

 

It's definitely not for the…

Because of the Fall, Absolute Beauty in the World is Gone

Christianity uses the word absolute in several instances. Absolute truth, absolute goodness and absolute beauty are all useable , yet seemingly undefinable, terms used by theists.

 

Philosophically, many have tried to define the thought of…

The power to make others feel good

At this point I have little doubt that evolution equipped us with a strong mechanism to promote social cohesion and good will, essential to the survival of any social species, especially one without big fans or impressive physical abilities or power, such as ours. We naturally like to make other people feel good, we have an impulse to be helpful, to soothe others, to comfort those who are in bad shape, to feel other people's plight. No need for a god or gods coming up from above to give us…

Gratitude?

Grateful, I hear that word a lot from the religious. Grateful for the food on the table, grateful for family in their life, grateful that god has provided for them.

 

It is a word my wife uses often. She's grateful for every damn thing I do, drives me to drink; which…

My Father's Funeral...an Atheist's Funeral

   A few weeks ago my father passed away. Like me he was an Atheist. Like me he had been one since he was a young man. I was six when I “became” one, or rather realized, like with Santa, the Easter Bunny,

ghosts and all, it was all made up.

  So in keeping with my father’s wishes we had a non-religious funeral.  I gave the eulogy. I spoke about his life.  What he had…

Voices Carry

Did you ever wonder why you are reading another atheist coming out story? Maybe
another rant. Maybe someone who has just had the light of reason
invade the membrane? I look at it this way.



Many times while reading a new post, I just scan through and tick off the points. I've
heard many, read…

The Supreme Court has ruled that you are allowed to ingest any drug, especially if you are an addict!

In the early 1920s, Dr. Linder was convicted of selling one morphine tablet and three cocaine tablets to a patient who was addicted to narcotics. The Supreme Court overturned the conviction, declaring that providing an addicted patient with a fairly small amount of drugs is anacceptable medical practice "when designed temporarily to alleviate an addict's pains." (Linder v.United States.)

 

In 1962, the Court heard the case of a man who had been sent to the clink under a…

One of the popes wrote an erotic book

Before he was Pope Pius II, Aeneas Sylvius Piccolomini was a poet, scholar, diplomat, and rakehell. And an author. In fact, he wrote a bestseller. People in fifteenth-century Europe couldn't get enough of his Latin novella Historia de duobus amantibus. An article in a scholarly publication on literature claims that Historia "was undoubtedly one of the most read stories of the whole Renaissance." The Oxford edition gives a Cliff Notes version of the storyline: "The…
