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.

Respect for the Fallen

Posted on February 3, 2021 at 9:00am 0 Comments

The scene is set in the Rotunda of the US Capitol building.  Hardly a few weeks earlier, that had been the site of a riotous attempt at raucous, lawless insurrection.  This moment could not be more different.  The lighting is subdued.  There is little to no conversation from the observers scattered about, their attention focused on the rectangular pedestal, located at the center of the Rotunda.  Said pedestal holds but two items.  The first of these is a flag, folded to a triangle shape in…

Dear President Biden: Regarding Christian Nationalism and January 6, 2021...

Posted on January 23, 2021 at 10:40am 2 Comments

I have no doubt but that Joe Biden is one busy new president at the moment, and I tend to suspect that he may never actually READ the following (do they ever?), but considering the events of two weeks ago, Wednesday and our gang's concern regarding just who may have made up that mob, I found myself moved to write.



And so I did:

The Problem With Miracles

You see there is only one constant. One universal. It is the only real truth. Causality. Action, reaction. Cause and effect.”[1]



While the Merovingian was a snotty, self-important dweeb within the Matrix’s scheme of things, I couldn’t be more in agreement with him as to the issue and the necessity of cause and effect.  Cause and effect is and indeed must be the central operator to the coherent function of…

Temper Tantrum

Posted on January 8, 2021 at 8:30am 10 Comments

Well, it finally happened.



One way or the other, Donald Trump has been building up his backers and his base to this moment from before the 2016 election.  Trump talked virtually non-stop about elections being rigged, about being cheated out of a popular vote victory, arguments regarding the numbers at his inauguration speech, and every complaint regarding the power he has wanted to exercise, whether legally or not, as Commander in Chief.  That same language continued into the 2020…

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
