Off to better things...

Well, since no one is really listening anyway, and there's so little in the way of rationality or civility to be found, I am off to better things. Things like educating the public in science and promoting peaceful dialogue between the religious and nonreligious instead of hatred and ridicule in the vein of Hitchens. I'll leave this blog up, if for no other reason than to let others who may believe as I do know that they are not alone in their frustration with the way we are handling our worldview.

I leave our community with the following short snippet from Sagan's Demon Haunted World in the hope that it will one day see reason and pursue the course that it has talked about, yet abandoned, for the past decade.

The candle flame gutters. Its little pool of light trembles. Darkness gathers. The demons begin to stir.

No amount of your hate will save this candle. Only Reason - a positive Reason - will prevail in the end.

It's getting darker. It's almost too late.


  1. you little liars do nothing but antagonize...

    and you try to eliminate all the dreams and hopes of humanity...

    but you LOST...


    Einstein puts the final nail in the coffin of atheism...



    atheists deny their own life element...



  2. This is a shame. If for no other reason, I think you should continue to maintain this blog as an expression of why you remain an atheist, despite ignorant and hateful comments as the one above. I have found that maintaining a blog about my personal beliefs helps me clarify my position on certain issues not to others, but to myself. If you no longer have the time to continue, as I understand life takes over at some times, please leave this up, but I would love to see this blog updated again.

  3. A more appropriate question, DM, I think, would be "cake or death?" I shall have cake.

  4. I'm glad that you've been off to better things, but check out the contributions from Non-Litigious Atheist to some recent Friendly Atheist threads--the responses are either lame or nonexistent, tending toward the latter (probably because the points are so clear that no credible response is possible):’s-“fundamentalist”-atheism/

  5. Thanks for sharing this. I went and looked at the posts and made a contribution of my own. I imagine I'll get bashed for my comment, such has been the norm for quite some time. They might call it "freethought," but it ceases to be free if someone in the ranks disagrees with the party line. It is no wonder we are so hated.
