Available in full on Youtube. Thought some people might be into it. A great, scathing, very intelligent attack on religion (sorry believers).

I really love Richard Dawkins. If you know the word "meme", you can thank him (and I highly recommend looking into what memes are, it's probably not what you think).

I’ve read the book or actually I listened to the book, multiple times. I have a lot of professor Dawkins books and they are a joy to listen to.

Also check out Christopher Hitchens ‘God is not Great- how religion poisons everything ‘

... and here you go

Wile I’m on the subject, here is a book by the late great professor Sagan (hail Sagan)
This one is a little more on the pseudoscience subject, but also gives god a swift kick in his nonexistent ass. (Chapter 5, a dragon in my garage)



Sorry, but unfortunately, the man him self didn’t read any of his books on audio :-(

Yea atheists are tiresome. Imagine criticizing a nonsensical approach to decision making and also being a capitalist

Atheists have no imagination
How laughable of a notion, to assert that non-believers have no imagination from people who believe as they are told, with no evidence to back up the claims.( I gave up talking to imaginary friends when I was 5)
Why don’t you read/listen to the books and then make a decision? Fear of hearing a better argument ?

Blind faith is just the refusal to change your mind. It’s the grasping of ignorance with the inability to ever admit that you might be wrong.

Religion is poison because it asks us to give up our most precious faculty, which is that of reason, and to believe things without evidence. It then asks us to respect this, which it calls faith.

Many religions now come before us with ingratiating smirks and outspread hands, like an unctuous merchant in a bazaar. They offer consolation and solidarity and uplift, competing as they do in a marketplace. But we have a right to remember how barbarically they behaved when they were strong and were making an offer that people could not refuse.

If religious instruction were not allowed until children have attained the age of reason, we would be living in a quite different world.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

My Anarchist's Guide to Travel came in today, six days early! I know it's not anything major, but I feel like I'm finally making progress towards getting myself out and traveling.

Now I just have to make sure I don't forget about my book review (which I wrote in my spare time) because I was too busy plowing through this. 😬

EDIT: It also came with a message from Matt and an awesome StP sticker that I didn't notice at first! Thank you!!
