the uncomfortable truth

there is no "war on terror"

"Terror is an emotion. Emotions are part of human nature and cannot be eradicated. A "War on Terror" is therefore a war on humanity. The Bush administration has exploited the fear and shock of a nation in the wake of a surprising and dramatic act of violence to whip national fear and paranoia into a constant boil. Why?

The evidence suggests the whole point has been to seize power and steal money. We are witnessing a creeping coup in the United States, the overthrow of the idea, promulgated by our founders and by writers like Tom Paine, that the "Law is King:" "

"Bushco has enslaved Americans into a psychological reign of "War on Terror" that amounts to a criminal protection racket. We are told we must be afraid. That is, we are told we must live in terror. This is to protect us from. . . terror. Then, because we feel terrified, we must give up our freedom - freedom to write what we believe without fear of reprisal, freedom of due process and habeas corpus protection, freedom from secret intrusion into our private lives by government."

"It’s high time for America and Americans to remember our strength. We need not be afraid. When we surrender to fear, we lose our country, we lose our faith in each other, we lose our future and we lose our freedom. The best way to honor the sacrfices of our nation’s men and women killed in battle is to embrace, once again, that precious liberty.

It’s time to be America again."

from douglas adams

"...imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, 'This is an interesting world I find myself in - an interesting hole I find myself in - fits me rather neatly, doesn't it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!' This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, it's still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything's going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise. I think this may be something we need to be on the watch out for."

"We are the product of 4.5 billion years of fortuitous, slow biological evolution. There is no reason to think that the evolutionary process has stopped. Man is a transitional animal. He is not the climax of creation." Dr. Carl Sagan (1934-1996)

"I agree with Nietzsche that 'The secret of a joyful life is to live dangerously.' A joyful life is an active life - it is not a dull static state of so-called happiness. Full of the burning fire of enthusiasm, anarchic, revolutionary, energetic, daemonic, Dionysian, filled to overflowing with the terrific urge to create - such is the life of the man who risks safety and happiness for the sake of growth and happiness." - Schoolmaster Sanderson of Oundle (1857-1922)

cognitive dissonance

"Cognitive dissonance relates to the concept of being exposed to information or having experiences that conflict with our existing base of "what we know." The theory holds that our minds are not always flexible or rational when it comes to evaluating uncomfortable information or questioning our own beliefs.

The theory states that "dissonant cognitions" will cause us to dismiss or alter conflicting information or add justification to one side or the other--not necessarily rationally--in order to regain psychological balance. It's an important concept to consider in terms of the way people block things out, justify things to themselves or act irrationally. "

for all the conspiracy nuts

controlled demolition of WTC7

"The lesser known collapse of WTC 7, a 47-story skyscraper, is one of the most compelling pieces of the 9/11 puzzle. This building, not hit by a plane and suffering only minor damage from fire and the collapse of the adjacent towers, collapsed at 5:20pm into its own footprint and a small pile of rubble."

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."- Arthur Schopenhauer

the end of faith

"Religion persuades otherwise intelligent men and women to not think, or to think badly, about questions of civilizational importance. And yet it remains taboo to criticize religious faith in our society, or to even observe that some religions are less compassionate and less tolerant than others. What is worst in us (outright delusion) has been elevated beyond the reach of criticism, while what is best (reason and intellectual honesty) must remain hidden, for fear of giving offense."

"Faith drives a wedge between ethics and suffering. Where certain actions cause no suffering at all, religious dogmatists still maintain that they are evil and worthy of punishment (sodomy, marijuana use, homosexuality, the killing of blastocysts, etc.). And yet, where suffering and death are found in abundance their causes are often deemed to be good (withholding funds for family planning in the third world, prosecuting nonviolent drug offenders, preventing stem cell research, etc.). This inversion of priorities not only victimizes innocent people and squanders scarce resources; it completely falsifies our ethics. It is time we found a more reasonable approach to answering questions of right and wrong."


Let us not follow vulgar leaders
who exploit the fear of death,
and promise the bliss of salvation.
If we are truly happy,
they will have nothing to offer.

The Ardent Atheist
The results are in, and it appears that you have scored 70%...
You are an atheist, pure and simple. You think God is just one big lie, and consider religious people to be both annoying and beneath you. Ardent atheists will argue tooth and claw for their position, and have no truck with people that won't listen. You think being an atheist is the only way to lead an honest life, and see no reason to accept the pleas of faith. Ardent atheists are the backbone of atheism. Be proud.

the bush agenda

robbing the country blind and using christian fascism to get away with it ...

"The theology of despair is very seductive. It is shaping the spirituality of Christians which provides a strong core from which Bush draws political strength. And it has, at least, five political implications that affect each one of us here today:

1. israel is to be exalted and defended no matter what they do to the palestinian people

2. institutions like the UN are not to be trusted because they are tools of the antichrist

3. since the world is passing away the environment is not of great importance

4. the trust that jesus died for "my sins" is far more important than the teachings of jesus

5. a leader who loves jesus is to be followed as god's man for the hour"

"The strange thing about talking to non-scientists about sci- ence is that you quickly notice that some of the smartest, most thoughtful and intellectually curious people have a ter- rible understanding of it. Most students leave high school poorly equipped to manipulate even the most basic con- cepts. Nonetheless, I remain hopeful that we can increase science literacy and intelligent discourse in the US. What can I say? I'm an optimist. "
