The Planet Politics

The presidential race is about to get started, but not much in the way of fireworks yet. Until Romney picks his running mate, for the most part I'm going to ignore. Last week we looked at old, washed-up, has been Ted Nugent, who Romney actively sought support from. The Secret Service talked to the old windbag, but apparently found…

Freethinkers and Skeptics In Ancient Literature Part I: Thersites the Contrarian

As an outlet for the repressed literature student in me, I'm starting up this new series that focuses on characters in ancient Western literature who show some sign of skepticism or freethinking. By extension I'll also show the quacks, charlatans or authorities they dare to annoy with their tiresome voices of dissent, critiques and prodding for explanations, proofs, or…

Martin Pribble on the Global Atheist Convention that just took place in Melbourne

I think you should all visit Martin's blog; I wish I had been there in Australia for this convention. I have never been to Australia and it's one of the places I'd like to visit. Martin comments on a talk by Sam Harris that certainly seemed very interesting. As you all know, I'm not crazy about Sam but he is an important figure for atheists and from what Martin says, his talk on death (he changed from "free will" to "death"; I'm glad he gave the free will thing a rest; death, we can all…

Note To Self: Giving Christian Street Preachers Fake Money Bible Tracts Makes Them Mad

I found a fake bill Bible tract last summer and blogged about it.  I had it on hand and figured a Christian preacher would appreciate it.  

Here's the calculus that unfolded in my mind.  I figured I didn't need the bill any more and this guy was preaching to people on the street.  No good for me.  Maybe good for him.  So I gave it to him - well I…

Teaching Religious Mythology 3: Easter, Passover & The Pagans

Editor's Note: I threw out my back awhile back and ended up in a hospital waiting room yesterday, so I wasn't able to get this post out then.  Better late than never.

The complex of beliefs and rituals surrounding Easter and passover make it so complicated and strange that the farther I go from religion the more it confuses the hell out of me.  During my Catholic youth, I…

A God Who Hates

Laws alone cannot safeguard a society. For a law to be effective, there must be a moral foundation in the populace, and a nation has to attain a certain moral standard before it can either make laws or apply them. It is a society’s morals that formulate its laws and guarantee their enforcement. Interpersonal relationships within a society are complex, and the laws that govern that society may not be able to deal with every individual case. Only morality can do that. When I moved from a still…

Welcome to this week's edition of "The Weekly Planet." This week besides the usual topics I'll be adding education into the mix since that ties in with the global unrest and world wide protests. Education will be a recurring topic, as it should be, since an uneducated populace is an easily controlled populace.

How to Celebrate Passover, Jewish-Atheist Style

  Even though I spent more than a few years as a "good Catholic boy", for a time there I was deeply in love with a lovely, long-legged "Jewish Princess", who eventually broke my heart. Sigh...

 Although her family was not particularly "observant", during that time, I learned much about the traditional Jewish culture, mostly from her extremely old grandmother,…

If I Had A Million Dollars

Last night I went to my fridge to get some soy milk for my coffee (lactose doesn't agree with me) and I noticed a 1,000,000 dollar bill fridge-magneted to the door with all the other stuff.  I had put it there last summer after I found it while walking in the park near the river at the bottom of our street.  Young Christians were wandering the park with…
