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.

January 6th As “A Training Exercise”

Posted on January 5, 2022 at 10:40am 2 Comments

It’s been over a year since the November, 2020 election, and not quite a year from the infamy of the January 6th insurrection.  Joe Biden has assumed the presidency, taken the reins, and begun to guide our nation out of the 10-point cluster-fuck which was the four years of the Trump administration.  Perhaps his two biggest and most positive accomplishments have been the organization and deployment of the COVID-19 vaccines, which now has roughly 73% of US citizens with at least one…

Brian Tyler Cohen on Roe and a Pending SCOTUS Case

Posted on December 3, 2021 at 9:00am 3 Comments

Brian Tyler Cohen has been producing political commentary on YouTube for the past couple of years.  Generally, his traditional format has been to start with a video clip of some event, whether a speech in the House or Senate or an incident in the field, then comment on that event or incident.  Such videos will usually see him in a neatly tailored suit and tie and likely reading his script from a teleprompter.



Then there are those rare times when Brian is speaking both off the cuff…

On Being Remembered and Books

Posted on November 4, 2021 at 10:00am 3 Comments

When you get to be my age (70 years, 11 months), you begin to wonder how well or even if you’ll be remembered after the physiology quits working, and you’re no longer around to remind others of your existence.  That is a thought that I have intermittently pondered over the past couple of years.  My family situation frankly isn’t that reliable.  I have one brother and two sisters, none of whom have I heard from in the last 10 years, plus a daughter with whom I might exchange greetings and…

Atheism Versus Agnosticism

Posted on October 1, 2021 at 8:30am 8 Comments

There has been an ongoing argument regarding the words, “atheism” and “agnosticism,” practically since the biologist Thomas Henry Huxley coined the term, back in 1869.  What further complicates the contretemps is the fact that the object at the center of the belief or argument – “god” – continues to be without any form of objective demonstration or proof.  The conflation of the two terms on the part of some people only muddies the waters further.  Granted that I am no Huxley nor Hume.  To…

Happy birthday Loren. I do hope you'll have a lovely day. Remember we shouldn't count the last two years because the pandemic has kept us on pause.

I like fish and chips, too. :)

I wish that I had allowed more time to add many more fine thoughts from my friends. Trouble was that I prepared the bulk of the book of atheist quotations between 2000 and about 2014, and then other priorities (chiefly in academic archaeology, fieldwork and writing) took over. 

Loren Miller, 14 November 2009, Atheist Nexus: "We live now in the age of science, methodology and logic, where rational thought is slowly but surely displacing superstition as the primary means of evaluating our reality, how it behaves and what we can do with it. The brand of "crossing your fingers" which Pascal's Wager represents has no place and is unsupportable by any form of rational analysis."

Re Quote of the Day: "Something which does not exist cannot help us, but chronic dependence on something which fails to exist does active harm to all of us." Loren C. Miller. From page 82, of the book "Q".

Loren I have noticed the delay in posting. Not sure what I can do, but I'll message someone about it

The big 70. But  Loren it's not the numerical age that matters it's your fitness.

And from what I can see you look very healthy, long may it continue that way.

Many happy returns. Stephen
