2018 Check In

We all still exit and are still atheist. I checked in for the first time in ages and found the blog redirecting to some other site. I don't know how long that's been going on.

I removed the two custom HTML widgets we had, the stats counter and the atheist blogroll, and the redirect went away. Both sites seem to still exist for their original purposes, so I guess one of them either got hacked or something funny is going on.

By the way, vote. In all elections. I used to blow off the local ones and the mid-terms, but no more. For all the tiny offices' candidates you can find prepared nonpartisan research by several organizations, and you can certainly find partisan research, too. Find orgs you trust, make your voting list, and go vote.

Voting early is often easier and more convenient. And there are several resources to show you a sample ballot for your specific locale before you go.

Sick of Movies

Currently I'm reading a book and watching a movie that both have strong religious overtones. I should say that each of them have a couple characters who are strongly religious and it's just pathetic. They're both really ridiculous and the lengths they go to to perform their little religious ceremonies is fucking stupid. This one girl floats around the prison being as nasty and hateful as she wants and at the same time spends the rest of her time performing healing rituals and preaching about how much Jesus loves them and how forgiving he is, etc. It's fucking ridiculous. The girl in the other story hears the gods talking to her constantly and they tell her to do stupid shit like tracing the lines on the woodgrain floor. She does it for hours and hours. And she also feels unclean constantly because she's unworthy so she spends tons of time washing her hands till they bleed. She's been doing it for years. This is the kind of shit that religion talks you into doing and that the rest of us have to put up with. I'm getting really really sick of seeing this shit everywhere. Just grow the fuck up already and start taking responsibility for your own crap.

Going Under the Radar

I've changed jobs recently, and the new place is very conservative and privately owned. On the upside, work travel should completely end, and my work schedule will be much more steady and predictable. On the downside, at least temporarily, I feel less secure about posting my beliefs here.

Political Fearmongering

I don't really want to get into general politics here, but I need to vent about this somewhere.

I stumbled into a conversation with a coworker this week about the job market and the need to hang on to a job. Somehow on her end this turned into a conversation about how bad things will be if Obama gets reelected. According to her, there will be widespread rioting if Obama is reelected, and she is starting to stockpile food and water.

Fucking really? Are we seriously trotting out this pony again? Last time it was that Obama was a muslim and would destroy America if elected. Now there will be riots, although I don't understand why. I was smart enough not to ask.

Still Godless in 2012

SurferJesus, Faithenate and I are still around and still atheist. Clearly we don't find much time to post much lately, but I know SurferJesus would like to. I expect Faithenate would like to, but we haven't talked about it. We all stay pretty busy.

I read my old posts here from time to time. I'd still like to try a "Testify" positive atheist testimony site. I think I might go order some atheist jewelry tonight. I still like the idea of a community science program, but I'm not sure where to start. Also, I tend to not follow through on things. But that would be a nice thing to follow through on.

Big didlo up your ass!

Same Shit, Different Judgement Day

Ah, it's another judgement day.

Many Christians seem to think the rapture will involve them being called to heaven, leaving behind their clothes.

What the fuck?

So, is everyone naked in heaven? Or perhaps the styles or fabrics are different there, and you are issued a new set of clothes upon rapture. Does heaven have standardized uniforms?

But really, all these other humans who have died and gone to heaven before the rapture have left their earthly bodies here. Why would rapture be different? Won't it be odd being one of a few (or perhaps up to a half due to population growth and technological evangelism) walking around in an earthly body in heaven? Awkward.
