Kill ‘em all; let God sort ‘em out.

All the religious kids I knew growing were taught their own families’ sacred dogma to the exclusion of everything else.  The only thing anyone was taught about what other people believed were strange parodies made to sound absurd by comparison.  Atheists typically aren’t like that.  For example, I took my own kids to a Buddhist …

If only more schools could display more nativity scenes and menorahs…

My teacher said we made this to placate the harvest god Freyr.

State Rep. Dwayne Bohac, R-Houston filed a bill in the Texas legislature that is expected to receive bipartisan support to help religious-minded teachers and schools use holiday greetings like “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Hanukkah” and to “display Christmas trees, Nativity scenes, menorahs and other cultural icons of winter celebrations”.   So technically a Wiccan teacher, could …

Fukkenuckabee

Seriously this is why I am so disgusted by the Religious Right.  They exploit the emotions of those most in need, and offer a bald-faced fantasy whenever reality is  grievous enough to grant their advantage. How dare Huckabee say that school is where we don’t want to talk about eternity, life, responsibility, or accountability.  I …

Post-Apocolyptic Atheist Christmas Special

Apparently I agreed to do another charity this weekend.  I really need to keep a marker and a calendar next to each other. I’ll be joining this Rad Romanian to promote American Atheists this Saturday, December 22nd, immediately following the previously scheduled end of days. On that note, I would also like to point out …

Air

My name is not Aaron; it’s Aron.  It’s not pronounced like ‘errand’ but more like ‘aren’t’.  If you take out the ‘o’, and read it as ‘Arn’, you’ll probably say it right.  Although it’s better if you read it like the initials, R.N.  It isn’t the same as the Yiddish name; it’s Scandinavian.  I think …

Fake Morgan Freeman quote may have a few points about the Newtown school shootings

"Cheese doodles are nutritious!" sayeth Morgan Freeman.  Hypothesis about Freeman's truthiness has been falsified.

Some anonymous internet jerk posted a picture of Morgan Freeman with a quote from someone else about the cause of the Newtown school shootings.  There is a running joke that anything attributed to Morgan Freeman sounds true. This is the picture along with the quote. (picture caption mine) “You want to know why. This may sound …

‘Merica Christmas

Check out my homepage here. I know that whenever American Christians bitch about their imagined war on Christmas, they’re really either trying to push their beliefs onto others, or they’re trying force theocratic violations of the 1st amendment.  I have no problem with cultural holidays.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorites.  Obviously I’m not giving …

Lookie there, I’m in the newspaper

For photos and more links about Aron Ra, click here. There was at least one reporter at the Texas Freethought Convention.  I didn’t talk to her much.  She was in one of the pubs on Austin’s 6th St chatting it up with Darryl Ray, Zachary Moore, and the like.   So when a photographer showed up last …

Being a closeted atheist can still cost you –so I am coming out.

About 7 years ago, in West Texas, the childhood home of G.W. Bush, I realized I didn’t believe in any god.  Even though I later married Aron Ra, a loud, proud and publicly known atheist, I have kept my atheism out of the public arena of ideas.  Six years ago, I learned that even posting …

The Zombie Christ

If you live in the Dallas area, and you like independent films, We’re talking low-budget ‘B’ movies here.  Well, lower than ‘B’. If you actually enjoyed the movies on MST3K… if you like movies that are so bad that they wouldn’t even be on MST3K, nor Rotten Tomatoes either… if you were able to sit …
