Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Sunday Disservice – The Golden Rule Sounds Nice. What’s Your Problem?

All too frequently when the horrible/insane/incoherant practices/beliefes/consequences of religious dogma are pointed out, one hears responses that try to dodge the point rather than address it directly. One of the most common of these dodges takes this approximate shape: “Why do you even bother? It’s not like religious people ever do anything harmful in this . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Sunday Disservice – The Golden Rule Sounds Nice. What’s Your Problem?

A Simple Statement Of (Rationalist/Atheist) Creed

It is high time to realize that it is not wise to continue indulging irrational, ideology-driven, religious-driven, science-rejecting, mendacious, folks by allowing them to spew their bullshit without being called upon it – for the lame sake of “civility”. Allow me to offer to you my argument why:For too long now, too numerous people out . . . → Read More: A Simple Statement Of (Rationalist/Atheist) Creed

350 or bust: Take Time To Renew Your Spirit

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” ~ Albert Einstein

Dead Wild Roses: Relativism – Obscuring the Line between Shite and Shinola – Terence Mckenna

Mr.Mckenna on relativism and how it makes us into polite but foolish people. I see the religiously addled beginning to froth thinking perhaps that once we get rid or relativism we can get back to the unctuous vapidity of absolute morality…no no kiddies, what we are talking about here is moving debate back toward rational […] . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: Relativism – Obscuring the Line between Shite and Shinola – Terence Mckenna

The Darkness Strikes Back

I’ve begun a series of video-essays on YouTube (my channel is here) titled "Welcome to our Semi-Dark Age". The first episode is now up (in three parts, due to time length restrictions by YouTube) – hopefully, my skills at video recording/editing will improve as I make more videos. Similarly, my pronunciation of English words remains a work in progress … In any case, I’ve embedded herein the . . . → Read More: The Darkness Strikes Back

Dead Wild Roses: What Atheists do in a Crisis? – Prepare (duh)

It is awesome to watch the faithful whirl in indignation when they are called on the bullshite they believe in. I’m not sure what Fox news was trying to do with this piece other than making their hosts look foolish. The US is plodding back to the Dark Ages with their delusional christian inanity at […] . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: What Atheists do in a Crisis? – Prepare (duh)

Progressive Proselytizing: The False Dichotomy of Emotionalism vs Rationalism

There is this bizarre perception in our society that we are somehow in a great conflict between forces of emotionalism and rationalism. The idea here seems to be that going too far into the side of emotionalism is bad, destructive and leads to irration… . . . → Read More: Progressive Proselytizing: The False Dichotomy of Emotionalism vs Rationalism

Dead Wild Roses: Science – It works B*tches – Why, rationally, you must accept Evolution

It is nice knowing that you are fairly right about something. Evolution happens to be one of those topics in that category. The funny/sad part is running across people who still “don’t get it” and either are deluded or have let their misplaced skepticism get the better of them. I try unsuccessfully to hide my […] . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: Science – It works B*tches – Why, rationally, you must accept Evolution

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Sunday Disservice – How Religion Poisions Everything – Hitchens

Religion is one of the factors that constantly works against civilization and the values of the Enlightenment. Belief in magic and the supernatural, a wish to return to the Dark Ages is remarkable exercise in puerile wish-fulfillment. Strong argumentation, relentless morality and ridicule are the only answers to the plague of religion. The purulent immorality […] . . . → Read More: Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Sunday Disservice – How Religion Poisions Everything – Hitchens
