My Review of “Fighting God” by David Silverman

(my review of “Fighting God” by David Silverman) I happily give “Fighting God” five stars. I do not agree with everything David said. However, I do fully agree with his message, goals, and method. David Silverman is a person whose life and message of Atheist Pride as well as enlightenment did not need a book. I see “Fighting God” as a handbook for others to have a piece of his message with them. This book is not simply another call to arms against ghosts, gods, or religion but a united cry to the heart of the lost seeking something new and a gift of stealth to those already battling in the trenches. David speaks to you as one who cares and arms others with the often missing tools that could bring doubt, if they are lacking. I am not an atheist who is new to the struggle nor am I lacking information or knowledge. Yet, I must say I am inspired every time I hear David Silverman speak and am equally inspired by his book. You may have other atheist books but you need this book. I am recharged to champion the cause of atheism. In addition, I have this book and my fellow Firebrand Atheist David Silverman to thank for this. May this book, like Firebrand Atheism, blaze a fire storm across the world creating empowered proud new atheists and recharging the long standing atheists to remember the real difference that we all make when we champion the reality of the godless reality of this wonderful natural universe that we all are a part of. The fact that...

Me and My Gender Diversity

I will comment on me and then gender diversity. Let me give you more background on me if you are interested in understanding me more. I am mentally genderqueer (mental thinking is kind of like both male and female) and mildly intersex meaning I have biological and physical differences. Few of the obvious physical ones are I have female size nipples, hidden penis, and a non closed internal pelvic opening. At birth, the underside of my penis had a small opening like a pseudo vagina which was surgically closed at birth. Therefore I had “severe hypospadias” of my penis. “severe hypospadias a very mild form of intersex (under-virilization of a genetic male). Hypospadias is the most common anomaly of the penis affecting approximately one in 250 males born.” http://musom.marshall.edu/graphicdesign/ibooks/Reproductive%20Normal.html#prettyPhoto[pp_gal]/34/ Biologically, I had my testosterone checked and it is so low that it is less than some women. Mentally and emotionally, I am often more attracted to feminine things such as watching a play than playing sports, being creative than working on a car. I enjoy cooking, shopping, clothes styalist, decorating, getting manicure and pedicures, painting my nails, I have tattooed eyeliner as well, and when around a group of women I often forget I am male. I have always felt offended when women are put down and not valued since it feels like it is against me. Even in one of my counseling courses in a brick school for my bachelors, the class was 20 students and I did not realize I was the only male until the professor asked me how does it feel to be the only...

No gods and No Kings

No gods and no Kings, only enlightened humans working as one. We must own the responsibility and drive towards equalitarian hope, not simply as a individual but as a mindful group of individuals with mutualistic caring and thoughtful intentionality as a positive human community. Yes, we can and will see a brighter future, if only we are willing to help make it...

Agnosticism Beliefs Involve “FOLK LOGIC” Thinking?

Agnosticism Beliefs Involve “FOLK LOGIC” Thinking? Well, I have been asked If I am an Atheist can I explain about my anti-agnostic thinking and to explain why I say agnosticism beliefs involve “FOLK LOGIC” thinking. My anti-agnostic thinking is a challenge to the agnostic thinking not an attack on the people who hold the agnostic thinking. My anti-agnostic thinking is not me trying to tell others they are not atheist enough or not real atheists nor is it trying to say you have no right to believe you are an agnostic. For me my anti-agnostic thinking is about “The Ethics of Belief” as I see it. http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/ethics-belief/ I don’t claim to know what agnostics know or don’t, think or don’t other than to say I disagree with the “I don’t know”, “I am not sure” or “I can’t be certain” about the god concept question. I am not against people calling themselves agnostic if they wish I am against the thinking that one would once informed still see value in agnostic thinking. I see agnostic thinking often even by deep thinkers choosing to hold some foundations built on folk logic as STEVEN D. HALES calls it. Steven D. Hales is the professor department of philosophy Bloomsburg University, here is an article on that: You Can Prove a Negative. A PRINCIPLE OF FOLK LOGIC is that you can’t prove a negative. Skeptics and scientists routinely concede the point in debates about the possible existence of everything from Big Foot and Loch Ness to aliens and even God. In a recent television interview on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, for example,...

Free Secular Society

  I am not for oppression or abuse of religious believer and want a free secular society with both freedom of religion and freedom from religion. Even though I wish the end of faith and believing in myths and superstition, I wish this by means of informing the willing and not force of the unwilling. I will openly challenge and rebuff religious falsehoods and misunderstanding as well as rebuke and ridicule harmful or unethical religious ideology or...
