Another one from Greta →
Though I think she makes some broad general assumptions in this post the “Not so special Snowflake” portion is really good.She does an excellent job at explaining that atheists have heard theist arguments before and don’t think they are any more compelling when a new person says them.

I love Greta Christina’s Blog. She put’s things out there in a very forward, accessible way. The whole post is great but the end of it is fantastic. “But there’s a huge difference between making a case for why your religious views are correct… and getting offended, insulted, and martyred over the mere fact that some people disagree with you. Making a case for your...
Coincidental Godless Girl post →
I saw this post in my RSS feed today and thought it funny because of my last post’s subject. Love the godless girl she is way cool.
It is funny to me that some theists say that atheists think that people are not accountable for their actions because there is no almighty plan of an all powerful god. A friend of mine said just such a thing. Something like, if everything is random then there is no responsibility so why not commit murder? I don’t understand this assumption. Atheists feel that we are solely responsible...
It is late and I must sleep but I wanted to say something before I forget. My older sister is coming for a visit tomorrow and I am really excited about that. I think family is a great thing and I like the fact that I am close to mine. I’m not just close to my siblings I’m close to my parents as well. I think that is a really fortunate thing that I have. Some people don’t get...
ageofreason: Dan Dennett on dangerous memes This is a very interesting idea. I think I am mostly in agreement. I would like to hear more about it before I make any definitive statements. But, it is interesting and worth listening to.
So as usual a conversation I had with my lady got me thinking. It’s one of the things I love most about her she is a constant delight of different perspectives from me, and unafraid to say so. She got me thinking about things that have to do with art, sexuality, and feminism. I’m not even sure she knows just how much she did make me think about such things. And, though I have long...
To Give or not to Give
I’m not entirely sure why people think the way they do about respect. I think in many cases they are confusing it with other similar ideas such as veneration, adoration or admiration. All of these are synonyms but do not have quite the same meaning. Respect has a much broader range for it’s uses and a much richer meaning because of this. Respect is a much more encompassing word for...

So here is an interesting question. What exactly do you consider sex? A lot of people I’m sure have very different ideas about this. For example they will say one thing they do is a certain type of sex but when asked if they’ve had sex they say no they’re a virgin simply because they haven’t had penis in vagina penetration. I bring this up because it confuses the hell out...

Today I heard a conversation about miracles. It was between an atheist, Hemant Mehta, and a theist, Bob Enyart. The conversation was mostly about two points: what constitutes a miracle, and what the effect a true miracle would have upon the person who observed it. There were some interesting points brought up and of course some kind of silly ones as well. But all in all I thought it...
Levels of Extraction
There is a channel on YouTube run by a guy named Anton. Anton is a philosopher and enjoys talking about all kinds of subjects in this field. He has recently made a video in which he has some questions concerning atheism or more exactly that the term atheist doesn’t really say much about a person unlike say the term christian. While I fully agree with him that it doesn’t,I disagree...
I think there is an unspoken assumption in society at large that women are better at relationships than men. That men are less involved in the relationships they a part of and over all desire the relationship less. This I believe is absolutely false. I feel that the role of men and women in relationships is undergoing an evolution of sorts. With the advent of the feminist ideals we started to...
Blaspheme No No Blaspheyou!
I have gotten this argument vomited at me several times and it still cracks me up. It goes something like this: 1) Worship is based on gods that are specific and have religions that effect how some aspects of daily life are done. 2) If you do the thing in your daily life that has anything to do with such a god you are passively worshiping that god. 3) Therefore all people worship a god. So...
The Desire Eludes Me.
I have a channel on YouTube that I enjoy posting too, though I don’t post as much as I would like. But it has become a strange place in the recent year or so. I think that it is a unique place to post ideas due to it’s mass appeal. People can connect with one another, face to face, at their leisure. I think that’s what I like most about it. But lately I have noticed a trend...
