We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Too High A Price

The place is Earth Alliance Space Station Babylon 5, in the year 2260. The players are one “Mr. Morden,” a human representative of an ancient and powerful alien race known as The Shadows, and Vir Cotto, attaché to Centauri Ambassador Londo Mollari. The Shadows have recently been supporting the Centauri in a considerable military campaign against another alien race: the Narn, and Cotto and Mollari both have been deeply involved in that conflict, though Vir has strongly opposed it from its…

The End of an Era

It was sometime during an average day in November of 2009 that someone over on the now-defunct Experience Project site told me about this other website: Atheist Nexus. Unlike EP, it was open to atheists ONLY, and was intended to be a place where atheists, agnostics, skeptics, and other freethinkers could express themselves and exchange ideas without the constant harangue of believers who were determined to convert us from our supposedly sinful ways. Having already grown tired of countering…

Krauss, Silverman, and Feet of Clay

It was late February, 2018 when I first learned about issues regarding Lawrence Krauss and his inappropriate behavior toward women. Then in the first week of March, I got an email from American Atheists, indicating that David Silverman was being suspended from the presidency of that organization, pending an investigation. One week later, I learned that he has been removed from that position. In both cases, the only forthcoming source of details regarding both Krauss and Silverman is…

A Never-Ending Battle?

I have no illusions that there’s an endgame.  These problems never go away.  You have to educate every single generation about this and make sure it doesn’t creep back into our society.  There’s no sense in which the job is ever done.

-- Tim Gill



Just for the record, Tim Gill is a software engineer and rights advocate, who has been an integral part of the thrust for LGBTQ equality.  His influence spans from the 2003 Goodridge v Dept. of Public Health case to the…

The Tale of a Billboard for the RNC

It was something over a year ago that I learned that Cleveland was going to be the site of the 2016 Republican National Convention. The prospect of having a bunch of misogynistic, homophobic, mostly white guys invading The Best Location in the Nation was not a welcome thought, as you might well imagine, and that many of them were scornful of the concept of church/state separation did not help matters. However, I was encouraged by some discussion at a meeting of the Northern Ohio Freethought…

Reason Rally 2016 – Photo Album

There are lot of people I've met online since I became an atheist, many of them I am glad to call, "friend."  Still, it's something altogether different to MEET these same people in the flesh, or at least be close enough to photograph and hear them speak live.  Being able to do that a few times this past June 4th was as valuable to me as being able to attend the Rally itself, and I am glad to share with you some of those very neat moments here.





Here's Daniel and I.…

Reason Rally 2016 – My Impressions

Driving 360 miles with a lousy cold isn’t ordinarily my idea of fun, but this was the Reason Rally, and those don’t happen every day. So I added zinc and Hall’s Mentholyptus to my overnight bag and set off a touch after 8 AM Friday. Turns out the drive was pretty easy, and I got in around 2:30. There wasn’t a lot going on at the time, and I wanted to decompress after the drive, so there wasn’t much to do other than collapse! I DO want to note, however, that one thoughtful provision had been…

It's Time to Lose the Naïveté

Another oldie but goodie here, or at least I think so.  As always, your thoughts are more than welcome.



===============================

In an age characterized by science, technology and growth and development based on rational, objective criteria, religion is clearly anathema and anachronistic. Any analysis of any religion I am aware of boils down to a faith based on a book or books, none of which has any independent corroboration or historical referent. Put bluntly, they…

Easy Rider Redux

Since I'm new to Atheist Universe, I figured I'd offer something of an introduction to where I'm coming from, via some of my writings.  I penned the following some years back, but I stand by it ... and I'd be interested in hearing your comments.



======================

The scene is a wooded field, somewhere in farm country. Three men sit around a campfire, sharing a joint and talking....

George Hanson: You know, this used to be a helluva good…
