Show notes for episode 4: The rise and fall of secularism. Is secularism bound to failure. With the religious birth rates and accelerated indoctrination, the numbers are favoring the religious. However this is not a death blow to secularism. It does however renew the need for finding allies on the other side. There are the […]
In this episode we discuss beliefs, how one comes to a belief, and what a belief is. We also discuss indoctrination, and how it is different from the way most people come to beliefs. We go into Trumps Muslim ban and why atheists should be concerned. At the end of the show we talk about the working poor, and how that is an often overlooked section of atheists.
Local Elections: We start off with a snippet of my personal story. Then we move into to some laws and local candidate news. We then emphasize that we need to pay more attention to the local elections and find the secular values candidates. The importance of these local elections can not be overestimated. It is […]
East Tennessee finds itself lacking in strong atheist, agnostic, and secular humanist communities. We need to work together and build our own community and create strong social safety nets.

The Democrats in the Senate are holding open the senate session until the vote on Devos. Hopefully, one more Republican senator can vote for reality instead of along party lines. The nomination of Betsy Devos will be a devastating blow to our public education sytem. It will set us back at least 50 years. […]
The HELP committee vote on Betsy Devos was a complete travesty of governance. All of the committee members who were present voted, and yet a vote was allowed by a member who was not present. After an objection was made, the chairman ruled that an objection must be made at the time of the action. […]
The executive order signed by Donald Trump to ban entry to people from Muslims countries is appalling. Not only does it run counter to the ideals of America, but it is also dangerous to our position on the world stage. It is already having chilling effects with many reportedly being detained at airports all […]
The Trump opposition to the media is dangerous to the very idea of democracy. This is due to the media’s role in keeping the people informed. At times, they may fail at this endeavor.
