The Game Has Healed My Autism

Golf, where nothing is impossible, has healed my autism. Over the years I have learned something about the Scottish sport, which I have quietly and firmly adapted to my own uses. When everything in your life is uncertain, there’s nothing quite like the clarity and precision of a fresh tee and a tough green.

 

Golf can make you a better person and put life in perspective. It was the ancient and royal Scottish sport that helped me to discover that I had a mind, a voice of my own,…

From What Sources Do You Derive Strength and Consolation As you Face the Abyss?

After 70+  years where do you derive your strength and consolation as you approach the abyss. The question is more immediate to me now, after a recent comment  by my wife that approaching 75 I have 10 years of functional being if I am lucky. My approach to date has involved heavy physical exercise, reading widely in the political and financial world. Much of my past reading activity explored much of the available literature in eastern…

Why Every Atheist Should Read Scripture

Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived – Isaac Asimov

I’m an open atheist around school and in general, and I never shy away from answering questions of my pro-science nature. I feel that I should match the proud wearing of my ‘Darwin-Fish‘ pin with an equally proud and proactive attitude towards confrontation –…

The Almuslih Publishing Project



The Almuslih Publishing Project

Almuslih (Arabic for 'The Reformer') aims to maximize the exposure and distribution of journalism and analyses promoting progressive thought in the Arab Middle East and the Muslim world. This new publishing project focuses on freedom of expression and progressive thinking, on religious pluralism and diversity.

Sports Heroes Attribute Success to God; Churches Use These Profits to Fund Hate

When Gabby Douglas won the Olympic Gymnastics All-Around gold, she proclaimed, “...I give all the glory to God, it's kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to Him and the blessings fall down on me.” She will be reiterating this sentiment in front of thousands of fans at Canyon Ridge Christian Church in Las Vegas December 1st and 2nd, 2012. This is a paid speaking engagement, the church communique explains: The church enjoys bringing these…

Has science become a new god ?

Tremendous achievements and advances in understanding what surrounds us and about us too have been made since early civilizations because of scientific discoveries. But at this time, science seems to be bandied about often erroneously or without backing or proofs.

I would like to hear what are the references of what I hear constantly "according to science" or "it has been scientifically proven".  The words "I believe in science" are so common, sometimes I think it's almost like saying…

The Police State

Here's a few images for you to check out. What mighty city is this that needs such a show of force? Lansing MI, with a population of 114,000, is apparently under siege by the populace. At least one might think so looking at the following images. These are from today and there's not a protestor in site.…

Becoming Free

Becoming Free



Blame it on my parents.  They always told me to "think for yourself”.  I doubt they ever considered what would happen if I really did that. 



Now, I suspect what they meant was, "Think what we tell you but do it in your own words."  Too late.  When I was 13, I began to question everything and soon the total absurdity of religion became apparent. 



Because I have been “encouraged” (forced) to read the bible…

Arabs Hated The Quran

It may come as a surprise to the reader, and certainly was a surprise to me, to learn that religious fervour as we know it today was far less prominent in the Islamic societies of the past. Islam’s role was mainly highlighted and utilised during conflicts. Pure and true Islam, as it is applied today by the the Wahhabis and Talibans, was seldom put to full practice after the death of Mohammed and his companions. Although the Islamic dynasties were generally oppressive, but there have…

Temptations of a Non-Believer

Excerpt from Primo Levi's 'The Drowned and The Saved', a collection of essays depicting his time at the Concentration (extermination) camps :-

 

'I too entered the Lager as a nonbeliever, and as a nonbeliever I was liberated and have lived to this day. Actually, the experience of the Lager with its frightful iniquity confirmed me in my non-belief. It has prevented me, and still prevents me, from conceiving of any form of providence or transcendant justice… I…
