Vaccinate Your Kids, Idiots!



This will be my third blog for the day, but I just read something that is very disturbing to me. I don’t understand, and never have, the refusal of parents to have their children vaccinated against diseases that are easily prevented. Here we are though, in the 21st century, where a lot of people receive their information about medicine, and other science, via Google University or whatever outlet suits their bias on whatever topic is presented.

Get Out of Our Country, Atheists!



Atheists have always been concerned, to a degree, with how low we poll among the general population as to being trusted. We have polled lower than rapists and that should be disturbing to anyone, atheist or not. Why is it we’re so disliked (okay, I’ll say it – hated) by those that probably don’t personally know an atheist? Why is it that just not believing in god(s) somehow brings out a level of vitriol in some people that in any other circumstance, would be considered a threat? Think about it. Some of the things I’ve seen posted on social media by so-called believers are so over the top that it has me wondering about the mental health of the same.

Atheists Are Not Obsessed With God




Why are you obsessed with God, a being you claim doesn’t exist? ?Is a question atheists often hear. Personally, I’m not obsessed with any god, although I do write about the subject on occasion.

It hasn’t occurred overnight. It’s been coming for a long time and those that haven’t recognized what’s been going on now for a few years are either incapable of noticing a sea change or are willfully ignorant. What I’m referring to is the idea that words are violence and criticizing someone because of what they’ve said or done is inciting violence against that person. We’ve just heard this explicitly from Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) when  defending her fellow democrat, Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over a statement made in a speech where she referred to what happened on September 11, 2001, as some people did something.

Restoring Your Name ( A Sarah Braasch Story)




I wrote recently that I wouldn’t’ t be discussing Sarah Braasch anymore. I guess I lied. I’ve written several posts on her dilemma, being accused of racism at Yale University. I wrote initially that I didn’t know Sarah, never met her, and was introduced to her by an online friend, Gretchen, who told her I would be someone, a skeptic, that would be someone that would actually spend a little time to look into her situation. As you know, if you follow this blog, I did.
